New York Knicks
He may be the king, but LeBron James may resemble a superhero or WWE villain more when he takes the court Thursday night against the New York Knicks.
It’s not quite a nose for news, but LeBron James’ nose remains in the news this week as the team prepares to face, pardon the pun, the New York Knicks on Thursday.
LeBron James will sit out the Miami Heat’s game Sunday against the Chicago Bulls because of a broken nose.
New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony can opt-out of his contract at the end of the current season and if he listens to his collegiate coach, he should do that and leave the Knicks in the rear-view mirror.
LeBron James had 30 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, and the MiamiHeat avoided a winless season in the Big Apple with a 106-91 victory Saturday night that snapped the New York Knicks’ four-game winning streak.
Carmelo Anthony scored 24 points, Andrea Bargnani had 19, and the New York Knicks beat the Miami Heat 102-92 on Thursday night for their season-high third straight victory.
The next time the Miami Heat take the court against an Eastern Conference foe, they may need a couple of name tags.
Florida International University’s men’s basketball team will not be eligible for the postseason next year because of poor academic performance based on the new academic progress reports released by the NCAA Tuesday afternoon.
“There’s a lot of different stuff I may have the opportunity to do,” Kidd said. “If I play, I plan on playing for the Knicks. I got to be honest with myself. I’m a young man. (But) I got to see if I could still mentally do the grind all over again.”
Anthony first hurt his left shoulder on April 14 against the Pacers. Now it seems he played the entire playoff run — 12 games — with a partially torn labrum.
