Rose was the NBA MVP playing for the Bulls and looked set for a long and successful career at the top of the sport.That did happen this weekend but not in the way we would have ever expected. Rose, a member of the New...
The New York Knicks are probably going to look to build around Kristaps Porzingis if and when they move on from Carmelo Anthony, but what if the 21-year-old Latvian star decides he wants out of The Big Apple?In a recent interview in his home country, Porzingis seemed to stop short of committing to the Knicks for the long-term. While he said he wants to remain in New York, the former...
Derrick Rose is making his playoff rounds, now that he’s set to become a free agent this summer. Given how this season played out, it seems highly unlikely that Rose will be awarded a new contract with the Knicks, so maybe that’s why he was at the Spurs-Grizzlies game on Saturday. Less than 24 hours later, he was seen at United Center for Bulls-Celtics. And the crowd went nuts...

But when Derrick Rose showed his face at the United Center in Chicago, it was a pretty surprising moment for everyone involved. The former MVP was traded from the Chicago Bulls to the New York Knicks last summer after spending eight largely successful seasons as the face of...
When the season started, Derrick Rose thought of the New York Knicks as a "super team" on par with the Warriors or Cavaliers.

While not an accomplishment worthy of "super team" status, it was a sign of progress for a franchise who had missed the postseason for three...

Boomer & Carton mercilessly mocked Mike Francesa for mumbling through a Kristaps Porzingis press release

A lot of people got a kick out of that clip, but no one enjoyed it more than Francesa’s colleagues and arch...
Kristaps Porzingis blew off the New York Knicks at the end of the season.Can anybody blame him?

Carmelo Anthony and his wife La La appear to be headed for a divorce, but there will apparently be a number of legal hurdles they must clear before any official split can be finalized.According to a report from TMZ, Anthony and his wife signed a prenup before they got married in 2010, and it “benefits Carmelo way more than La La.” Carmelo, who is entering the final year of a...
