We Will See You in Dallas!!

For the first time since 2001, the Knicks have an all-star! After Allen Iverson decided to not show at Dallas due to personal reasons, (aka realizing that it he’s a complete joke to the NBA) a slot opened up for 5BS-favorite David “Gator” Lee. In 2001, Allan Houston and Latrell Sprewell were both selected to the All-Star Game in Washington D.C. Since then, the only two Knicks highlights during All-Star weekend was when Nate Robinson won the slam-dunk contest in 2006 and 2009. Lee won the reserve spot over Shaq and Milwaukee Bucks’ center Andrew Bogut. It’s great to know that despite a Knicks’ less-than mediocre season, Lee is getting some recognition around the league. Finally, a reason to watch the worst All-Star Game in sports.

  1. VanillaICE Says:

    Glen Davis should have gotten the nod for the East All-Stars… ICE ICE big BABY

  2. is he still in Boston? I thought he was gone already.

  3. Does anyone miss the NFL Pro Bowl? I mean when it was supposed to be played – the week after the Super Bowl?? What is going on in the world? The year before Phil Simms had that record setting Super Bowl MVP performance he had an outstanding Pro Bowl MVP performance which foreshadowed his big day in Pasedena. Yes, the week after the supposedly dynasty-launching Chicago Bears’ Super Bowl (Where have you gone Jim McMahon?) Phil Simms took the NFC 80 yards for a game winning drive, hitting key third down passes of 19 yards to Green Bay’s James Lofton and 17 yards to Monk. Simms finished the drive with a 15 yard touchdown pass to Jimmie Giles of Tampa Bay with 2:47 left in the game.

    Simms had brought the NFC from a 17-point halftime deficit to a 28-24 victory. In doing so, he completed 15 of 27 passes for 217 yards and three touchdowns and was named the player of the game.
    A year later his line in the Super Bowl would read: 22 of 25 passes completed for 268 yards and three touchdowns.

  4. i hate that the pro bowl is the week before the Super Bowl. It’s stupid how the game is supposed to consist of the best players in the NFL, yet the two best QBs in the league this year weren’t playing! i never knew that about Simms. thats some great stuff though! guess that was back when the Pro Bowl actually meant something.

  5. Time to remember a truly great Knick All Star – Willis Reed. It is the 40th anniversary of that outstanding 69-70 Knick Championship season in which Reed was the first NBA player to earn the “Triple Crown” of awards (MVP of regular season, All-Star Game and Finals).
    Reed, in his career, was in seven All-Star Games and five All-NBA designations (first or second team). He is also one of the 50 Greatest Players of NBA’s first half-century.

  6. willis reed. talk about a true professional. even though it was over fifteen years before I was born, I get chills watching him come out of the locker room for game 7 of the ’70 finals. gotta love the ramblin’ man from gramblin’

  7. No way Glen Davis should be an all-star. He cries when KG yells at him.
