    The Webb Report: Knicks Talk!!

    Author Eric Webb

    It was a light week for the New York Knicks, in terms of their games played, but a heavy one in terms of the pressure the 70-year old organization received from the media and fans around New York.

    The Knicks only played three games this week instead of four and had three days until their next game, but the critics of the Knicks took no days off this week. The usual Knicks fans booed their team as they lost to the Pelicans at the Garden and to the Sixers in Philadelphia, but they also have been publicly criticizing Carmelo Anthony on multiple social media platforms begging the team to trade him. The week the plot thickened by Phil Jackson’s good friend, Charlie Rosen, jumping into the conversation suggesting that Melo would consider waiving his no-trade clause in his current 5-year $124 million contract, only if he was dealt to the Los Angeles Clippers or Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the NBA Off Season: The Top Three of Each Category!!

The NBA Draft is the unofficial start of the new NBA season and so far the new season has been full of excitement. Free agency was filled with twists, turns and deception (did I use that word in the sports world?) and excitement. Players moved, Players stayed and now with the movement done let’s take a quick look back at the Good Bad and Ugly of the NBA Offseason. 

Shaq Comes Full Circle

Shaq Comes Home

Shaq Comes Full Circle

Shaquille O’Neal was the 1st overall pick by the Orlando Magic in the 1992 NBA Draft and considered the biggest can’t miss prospect since David Robinson was drafted by the Spurs following the 1988 NBA Season. Standing at over 7 feet and weighing 315 pounds, O’Neal was a center that would eventually revolutionize the position. But to the City of Orlando, he was just Shaq. Before he put on that Magic jersey for the first time, Orlando was known for a being a tourist attraction town with an NBA team that happened to be a part of the city. The Magic had won around 70 games in the first 4 years of the franchises existence. Other than the team’s first ever draft pick Nick Anderson, who is also a part of the Magic Hall Of Fame, The team really didn’t have much of an identity.

The Meadowlands Closes Down and We look Back at the Best Moments With the NJ Nets

Closing Down The Swamp: Looking back at the IZOD Center

iAfter years of going to Nets games at the Brendan Byrne, Continental Airlines Arena, Izod Center, and whatever name it goes by next, I can honestly say, "Yes, the building was a dump but I considered it my team’s dump." This building is where I saw Drazen Petrovic (my hero) play and inspire me to want to be involved with basketball.

This is the building I was able to witness many Knicks-Nets games and see Shaq rip the backboard down.   I feel lucky that I was able to see the debut of Jason Kidd in a Nets uniform and watch him give us the ride of our lives as he led the team to the Finals.

Kidd led the team to six-straight playoff appearances and two trips to the Finals. Then my years on the other side, working with the Nets and becoming a part of the media brought so many memories at the Meadowlands. I give you my top 10 moments of my time at the Meadowlands watching the New Jersey Nets!!ng this week...
