Rockets mascot Clutch assaulted by Robin Lopez

Robin Lopez is a menace to society. Not only did the Rockets lose the battle with the Knicks last night, Houston's mascot Clutch was beat up by Knicks center Robin Lopez. Sure maybe, Clutch deserved it. The mascot was wearing shirt with Batman's Robin crossed out. Clutch then shot Lopez with fire extinguisher repeatedly and clearly did his best to express "come at me bro" with his mascot face. Robin Lopez processed to choke Clutch and knock Clutch to the ground. I'm not sure Lopez knows how to use a fire extinguisher because he rubbed the side of it on Clutch's face while he was on...

The Kristaps Porzingis Guide to Saying Badass Quotes

He plays hard on the court; he quotes hard off the court. Kristaps Porzingis is hard. The 7'3" big man from Latvia may weigh as much as your little sister, but he is beasting supposedly tough NBA opponents inside, ranking sixth in offensive rebound percentage. Now Kristaps is starting to bring some of that feistiness to his interview sessions, where he balks at the assertion that we should be surprised by his rugged, all-out playing style (via Newsday's Al Iannazzone): "It's a weird question," Porzingis said. "That's the way I should be. I should be aggressive on the court, especially now...

Jose Calderon is also very irritated by his poor play this season

He talked to the media yesterday about his performance so far this year. Jose Calderon has not had a good season; on that, Knicks fans can all agree. I don't want to speak for anyone else, but I know that I have been fairly harsh, both on this website and in personal conversations, when writing/speaking about Calderon's play this year. Hell, just three days ago, I spent more time complaining about Jose than praising Kristaps Porzingis in my recap of the Knicks' loss to the Bucks, even though Kris had an amazing game (that was the night he threw down those two MONSTER dunks). Point is,...

Knicks 99, Lakers 95: "1-0 in the post-Derek Fisher era!"

History, histrionics, nostalgia, novelty, Metta World Peace -- the Knicks' first home win had it all. A Latvian sun rose in the east while a legendary light continued to set in the west. The Knicks defeated the Lakers 99-95, earning their first home win of 2015-16 while snapping a three-game losing streak. The game was close throughout, appropriate for the drama of Kobe Bryant's pretty-probably-last MSG appearance. The script was Hollywood, but New York stole the show and the dub with a late-game 11-0 run. The Knicks had a couple big second-half runs, and those runs had something in common...

Robin Lopez played 1 minute and 20 seconds of basketball without a sneaker

Here is stretch of just over a minute of Knicks-Lakers basketball. It's not that noteworthy -- Metta World Peace and Carmelo Anthony traded threes to make it an evenly matched portion of the game -- except for one thing: Robin Lopez was wearing one shoe the whole time. I have seen lots of players lose sneakers (Langston Galloway hit a shot without one last season!), but I have never seen a player go so long without one. Lopez lost his left sneaker and tossed it aside while defending Roy Hibbert, moments before that Metta three: It remained off for 6 more possessions, including...

Robin Lopez nearly flaked on Brook Lopez’s World Series invite

ATLANTA — Brook and Robin Lopez have a unique relationship. The twin brothers, despite both being starting centers in the NBA — and in the same city, with Brook playing for the Nets and Robin for the Nets — never talk about basketball. In fact, Brook said the last time he had seen Robin even play...

Why the present — and future — looks bleak for Nets

ATLANTA — Even the most optimistic people around the Nets weren’t counting on the team contending for a championship this season. After years of championship aspirations, reality had set in for the Nets, and with it came more reasonable goals: make the playoffs, avoid sending the Celtics a high draft pick and bide their time...

Kristaps Porzingis explains early ‘love’ affair with Knicks fans

After the 2014-15 Knicks season deteriorated into an anguished pile of whatever-the-heck-that-was, a glimmer of hope shone through the misery. The Knicks would pick fourth in the draft, their highest selection since 1986. Four names were assembled in every conceivable order: Karl-Anthony Towns, Jahlil Okafor, D’Angelo Russell, Emmanuel Mudiay. At that time, Knicks fans thought...
