With the trade deadline fast approaching, rumors are all over the place. By now, you’ve probably heard the Knicks trade rumor of Shumpert on the trade block. I’ve been thinking about what the Knicks should do, and my answer may surprise you because in the past I’ve been desperate for the Knicks to take action. But this time, I don’t think they should do anything! Absolutely nothing! That’s right. The Knicks have shown a lot of heart this season. I think the squad they have now will keep winning and they just need to stay focused…and rested.
I know what you’re thinking as you read this…the Knicks have been losing lately. But it’s really just a slump. This team is older and they are tired. Their older bodies need a rest and the all-star break came just in time. They will now be well rested and ready to start claiming victories again. In fact, I think the all-star break couldn’t have come at a better time for the Knicks.
And speaking of the All-Star weekend, did you catch some or all of it? Thanks to my DVR, I was able to watch the entire weekend. Here are some highlights that I truly enjoyed:
· Seeing two Knicks, Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler, both in the all-star game. The best part about it is that they both showed they were all-stars because Carmelo led the East in points and rebounds, getting 26 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. Tyson Chandler did not shine as bright as Carmelo had a decent glow, putting up 7 points and grabbing 8 rebounds.
· Watching the Denver Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried nail 40 points and grab 10 rebounds as well as 10 dunks all in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge. He also won the MVP for that competition.
· Rewinding the plays of Kyrie Irving of Cleveland, breaking the Piston’s Brandon Knight’s ankles two times in the Rising Stars Challenge. He crossed him over 3 times, and he fell twice. Once he did that, it became a 1-on-1 contest in Houston. It was so much fun to watch. Also, Kyrie Irving was in the 3-point shootout and got 23 out of 30 possible points. He won that competition with style and also competed in the All-Star game.
· Enjoying the All-Star game. It especially was a pleasure to watch was CP3 in the all-star game. He lit up 20 points and dished out 15 assists leading the West to a victory against the East. Also, Chris Paul won MVP for his phenomenal performance in Houston, Texas.
