Hey, NBA fans, guess what? This time, there was no glaring mistake with the All-NBA teams, like there was with the All-Defensive team. LeBron James won the MVP award and made the first team. Phew! But, wait. It was still far from perfect. In saying that, there’s something we should all learn from the end of season awards this year, and that is, you should [...]

During game six of the Knicks vs. Pacers series, Ken Mauer threw the worst jump ball I have ever seen in my entire life. Usually, if a referee messes up the toss, they re-do it. But for some, inexplicable reason, they decided against it and the Pacers capitalised off of the opportunity. What the…?
The Knicks may only be two wins away from making the Eastern Conference Finals, but they’ve been terrible in these Playoffs. Carmelo’s FG% is way down to 39.5%, and their star off the bench J.R.

The result: his best season as a pro, which resulted in a shiny sixth man trophy. But J.R. has struggled in the Playoffs. [...]

In terms of their efforts on the defensive end, they weren’t terrible…in the fourth quarter. In fact, as a team, the Knicks held the Pacers to just 21 points and outscored them by nine [...]
