OFFICIAL: The @MiamiHEAT have signed Josh Harrellson (@BigJorts55).:( I'm glad Jorts got himself a job, but sad it had to be with the Heat. Maybe it's an undercover operation? Maybe he's gonna linger on the Miami bench for a year, surreptitiously bombarding LeBron and company with jarts the whole time, then return to the Knicks in 2013 with all sorts of Heat secrets to share?
There is a new head coach for Knicks D-League affiliate team, the Erie BayHawks. But he hasn't been named yet. Allan Houston, whose role as Knicks' assistant GM includes serving as the general manager of the BayHawks, told the Erie Times-News that the team has made the hire, but he would not reveal the name.Alan Hahn ...who could it be?
NBA 2K13's player intro includes Steve Novak doing his discount triple check. Novak: "That's hilarious! I've never seen myself in a game!"Jared Zwerling Yes, this is good.
We’re getting closer kids. #Knicks announce Media Day set for Oct. 1. Training camp at MSG Training Center begins Oct. 2.Alan Hahn I was still holding out hope for training camp up here in Saratoga Springs again (there'd been rumors), but I guess we would have heard a while ago if that was to be the case. Just a few weeks, y'all.
The Nets will open the preseason against the Knicks at Nassau Coliseum on Oct. 9, league sources said.A bit o' preseason news for you Long Islanders. The full preseason schedule should be out sometime next week.
"Chandler appeared to hit the back of his hand on the rim while battling a Tunisian player for a rebound with 4:45 to go in the fourth quarter. Chandler was sidelined for the rest of the night, sitting on the bench with a bag of ice on the back of his hand."Ian Begley I watched plenty of yesterday's game but somehow missed this. I'll update if I see anything more, but It doesn't sound like a significant injury or anything that would have sidelined Chandler if the game had been closer. Still...NO INJURIES. STOP. NOBODY IS PERMITTED TO TOUCH TYSON OR MELO INCLUDING ITEMS OF SPORTING EQUIPMENT.
"I’m a dog."- Raymond Felton, dog. (although if you keep reading, it's more of a dog whisperer analogy where Melo and Amar'e are the dogs. Just saying.)
Let's clarify the Raymond Felton issue - he received a 4 year, $14,861,532 contract, the final year of which is a player option.Mark Deeks So, four years. Eh.
