Looks like God answered that prayer, and even though Linsanity was put on a side rail following Lin's knee surgery April 2, the Knicks' point guard is poised to try a comeback.
ften people don't pay attention to what people say in ads. But this one -- starring Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder -- has a very interesting opening line.
As hard as it is to believe -- especially after Kobe Bryant's 43-point Game 5 performance -- Bryant will ultimately pass the torch to Bynum. But is it a torch he is willing to accept?
In nine career postseasons, Anthony is 17-37, which is the worst record of any active player with at least 50 playoff games. Even with Sunday's 89-87 win over the Heat, he has still lost 11 of 14 playoff games.
