  • Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game (55 years ago today)

    03/02/2017 10:06:50 AM PST · by EveningStar · 25 replies
    Wilt Chamberlain set the single-game scoring record in the National Basketball Association (NBA) by scoring 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors in a 169–147 win over the New York Knicks on March 2, 1962, at Hershey Sports Arena in Hershey, Pennsylvania. It is widely considered one of the greatest records in basketball. Chamberlain set five other league records that game including most free throws made, a notable achievement, as he was regarded as a poor free throw shooter. The teams broke the record for most combined points in a game (316). That season, Chamberlain averaged a record 50.4 points per...

    The current Knicks should show such fight. Charles Oakley, the bruising forward who more than anyone displayed the grit and physical play of Pat Riley’s ’90s Knicks, was arrested and taken out of Madison Square Garden during Wednesday’s game against the Clippers following an altercation with security guards. The incident occurred in the pricey seats after Oakley allegedly heckled team owner James Dolan, who was sitting nearby, said a source who witnessed the incident and asked not to be identified.
  • Sources: 3 NBA teams stop staying at Trump-brand hotels in NYC and Chicago

According to an Associated Press report (via, Lin will have knee surgery and will be out six weeks. There are only four weeks left in the regular season. So unless the Knicks, who are clinging to the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, pull a huge upset in the first round of the playoffs, it is unlikely that Lin will see the court again before the 2012-13 season.

    I suppose that one could make the argument that the Linsanity phenomenon ended when Carmelo Anthony rejoined the New York Knicks’ lineup earlier this month, but now that Mike Woodson has replaced Mike D’Antoni on the bench, Jeremy Lin’s days of being the team’s offensive catalyst are a thing of the past. Woodson announced the death knell of Linsanity in comments to reporters about the new system he will put in place, one that will see Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire getting the lion’s share of touches and shots. From SLAM contributor Jake Appleman, writing for the NY Times: Woodson ran...

    Mike D'Antoni has resigned as coach of the New York Knicks. D'Antoni's resignation was first reported by Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday. The coach's agent, Warren LeGarie, told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher that the parting was "a mutual decision" because D'Antoni and the franchise have "conflicting views of the Knicks' future." D'Antoni put the Knicks through a morning workout Wednesday and had been preparing to coach them against the Portland Trail Blazers. Instead, Mike Woodson is expected to handle that role. The Knicks (18-24) have hit a tailspin in the last two weeks, losing six straight and seven of eight...

    Like it or not, there's one thing all Knicks fans agree on: Their team just overpaid for Carmelo Anthony. Some think it was still worth it, others think it wasn't. Most agree that GM Donnie Walsh was embarrassed by his own owner, and that Isiah Thomas (the worst GM in the team's history) is the one who made the deal what it was. The Knicks are both relevant and in total chaos at the same time. That leaves them right where Mikhail Prokhorov wants them.
