The Houston Rockets with Chris Paul (Missing time due to suspension)and James Harden are off to a 1-3 start, and so far newest Rocket Carmelo Anthony has not done much coming off the bench. Melo has talked about having to adjust to coming off the bench, but it seems like Mike D’Antoni is willing to give Melo a shot at starting to jump start the Rockets.
You know Melo has been wanting this, but it remains to be seen if the results will be any different. Even though the season just started, this Melo looks like the OKC Melo who just camped behind the 3-point line.
I know Melo can no longer carry a team, but he should be able to give a team like the Rockets effective minutes. Everyone talks about ‘Olympic Melo’ but what happened to “Bully Ball’ Melo in the post? Why not run a couple of plays for him in the post?
Ok, ok enough of all that, I am not here to be a Melo apologist. I just wanted to give a lil commentary about Melo making his first start for the Rockets tonight. To be honest i am not expecting much, but at the same time I hope nothing but the best for the guy
One last thing, you know Melo had to be sitting on the bench during this 1-3 start channeling the high school football legend Bobbie Miles(Friday Night Lights)…
HAHAHA, I can see Melo now, “Y’all wanna win, put Melo in… I’m bout to spin!”
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
I wanted to take a quick minute and give a shout out to one of the great fans of sports….
With the resurgence of the NY Knicks this season, there is no other fan who is enjoying this NBA season more than Marija Kero aka “The Knicks Chick”. Now I consider myself a sports junkie, but I don’t know if I’m at the level of Ms Kero. Her passion for the Knicks might be unmatched as all she wants is for Knicks to be good again and reclaim the glory of the 90s and 70s; but don’t let her good looks or her love for the Knicks fool you!
She is not one of those fans that will endlessly defend her team; if she doesn’t like something she will let it be known. I am pretty sure if you go back and watch Knicks games from last season; you can probably hear her yelling “Pringles (her name for D’Antoni) you suck!” or “I hate you JJ (Jared Jeffries)!”. Trust me, I witnessed some of this last season 1st hand and according to her that was a toned down version of her antics during games (she didn’t want to scare me).
But that’s not what makes Knicks Chick stand out from most fans…..
While other Knicks’ fans sit around either gloating or cursing after games; Knicks Chick takes to YouTube to express her feelings. Her rants (and I mean that in a good way) are informative, hilarious, and unforgiving.
Here is 1 example of her sharp analysis…
Because of commentary (and BBM faces) like that Marija was featured on NBA Access with Ahmad Rashad; soon after that Knicks Chick became a regular contributor to Hoops Vibe. On Hoops Vibe she spits her hard-hitting commentary about anything and everything dealing with the NBA; without a doubt she is the true definition of a fan.
