With the New York Knicks out of the playoffs, there are plenty finger pointing to go around. One of the many assumptions why the Knicks didn't advance to the next round belongs to J.R. Smith, who may have let his off-the-field lifestyle conflict with his on-the-court performance. But, here's Jalen Rose to the rescue. In a recent appearance on Grantland, Jalen made a case that certain players, J.R. included, need to go out to the clubs. Sounds ridiculous but why don't you check out the video and hear him out. It may actually make some sense after all. Enjoy.

In February 2012, just one month before signing a six-year, $100 million contract with the Buffalo Bills, NFL defensive end Mario Williams asked his girlfriend Erin Marzouki to marry him. He did so by giving her a stunning 10-carat diamond engagement ring worth almost $800,000. But when their relationship fell apart a short time later, the couple decided to call the wedding off. They also ran into a problem: They both wanted the engagement ring. Marzouki kept it initially. But now, Williams is suing his former fiancée for $785,000. [Read More]

It’s clear that LeBron James has had a decorated history as a player, as underlined by his latest award: the 2012-2013 Most Valuable Player award – immortalized by Nike in the form of a crazy pair of King James’ signature kicks. The trophy is his fourth in five years, a feat only accomplished by Bill Russell in his day. The hype surrounding James is in many ways warranted, yet it seems that for as long as the 28-year-old has been in the league, he’s had just as many critics as he has accolades. The NBA has released a video retrospective of James’ career thus far, which gives viewers a somewhat complete look at the road the young player has paved for himself – a road undoubtedly deserving of respect.

If there was any hope among the Oklahoma City Thunder fans that Russell Westbrook would "pull a Metta World Peace" and return less than two weeks after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, guess we could put that idea to rest. According to Ken Berger of CBS Sports, the doctors involved opted the repair, instead of removing, which "requires a longer recovery time but also is a better long-term solution" and as a result, Russ will miss the rest of the playoffs. A specific timetable for Westbrook's return is uncertain at the moment. [Watch More]

The Association compiled their top 10 choices for Dunks Of The Year, nine of which we’re covered around these parts in some fashion. So what do you think? Did they get this right? Did they leave anything out? Personally, I’m just glad they gave Terrence Ross some love. Proven by his dunk contest victory this year, he’s going to be one of the special dunkers we’ve got in the league for the next six-to-eight years. Enjoy.
