HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – You knew it was only a matter of time before comedian extraordinaire Tracy Morgan weighed in on Linsanity and the state of affairs surrounding the resurgence of his New York Knicks.
Our main man, Jonah Ballow of NYKnicks.com, caught up with Morgan at Madison Square Garden to get his unique take on Jeremy Lin, the movement and other things:
HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – Knicks rookie guard Iman Shumpert was revealed as one of four contestants for the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest earlier today, joining Rockets swingman Chase Budinger, Pacers swingman Paul George and Timberwolves forward Derrick Williams.
But Shumpert will show up to Orlando with a (not so) secret weapon (Jeremy Lin) none of his dunk rivals can match. Our main man Jonah Ballow of NYKnicks.com went 1-on-1 with Shumpert and snagged the inside story from the man with overflowing amount of the “Shump Swag”:
HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – We’re a little embarrassed to admit it, but we can’t take our eyes off of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Between the long-awaited arrival of Ricky Rubio, the dynamic frontocurt duo of Kevin Love and Michael Beasley, the arrival of newcomer Derrick Williams and the always entertaining words and actions of general manager David Kahn, the Timberwolves make it hard to ignore them.
(We realize that stalking a cellar dweller in the NBA is akin to being hooked on trashy reality TV, but we can’t help it.)
The only remaining question is whether or not all this promise translates into something concrete on the court, and more importantly in the win-loss column. With just 32 wins in the past two seasons, we need something a bit more substantial in that category to justify all of this hype.
