Amar’e Stoudemire Put The Knicks Right Where They Started: Nowhere (from WFAN.com)

When Amar’e Stoudemire arrived here as the consolation prize to LeBron James, he embracedNew York and the challenge of winning with the Knicks. His “The Knicks Are Back!” mantra reverberated with the fan base and brought back a lot of the confidence that had been sucked away during the Isiah Thomas era… continue reading

The 2011 NFL Draft Class Might Be The Best Ever (from The Cauldron)

Imagine, for a moment, that your NFL team has J.J. Watt and Robert Quinn rushing the passer at defensive end. Marcell Dareus and Nick Fairley line up in the middle to stop the run.

When compared with the soon-to-be inducted Tom Glavine, Mussina’s numbers add up.

On Sunday, baseball will welcome six new Hall of Fame members to Cooperstown, including two pitchers: Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux. Both easily made the cut in their first year of eligibility by garnering more than 90% of the vote. Such an honor has historically been reserved for only those who finished up truly elite careers … continue reading

The Knicks Should Sign And Trade Carmelo Anthony
