Q&A with Knicks Star Landry Fields

Landry Fields is easily one of the most personable guys on the Knicks right now.  From his hilarious YouTube videos with Andy Rautins to his moves on the court, he's definitely one to watch.  The Knicks would be crazy to trade such an exciting player for higher picks in this years not so stellar draft.  Check out this interview Fields did with Slamonline.com.  What's not to like about this guy?

Yes the Mavs are the champions...just DeShawn Stevenson got hit with public intoxication in the wake of all the celebration. This is a "shot" he will never forget. Arrested NBA Champion, yea we'll have to remember that also.

Ok So Stevenson didn't know where he was. The officers ask him if he had just won a NBA Championship?

If you've been anywhere near a college campus you know what this is.

**He's a Champion that is a human folks, Yep sure is.**

Cuban Must Feel Better

Winning a championship can be related to having to release the bladder when the water bill is extremely due. Now mix those two and it can be quite a relief.

Fan Video: Words Spoken About Golden Rule

Lebron spoke some pretty truthful words in his post Finals lost presser, which he has since clarified.

So this fan has a pretty interesting look at LeBron's comments and how they relate to sports and life overall. Check it out...

**Several ways to take this. Comment below on how you take it?**

Video: Take Dat Wit Chew

Funny how it all just comes together...

You had to expect this from DeShawn Stevenson, as he and LeBron aren't the best of buddies.

And to top it off.... just "Take Dat Wit Chew"... Tyson Chandler and Dirk Nowitzki in this Ultimate Fan mix.

Spotted: Dirk Celebrating Title

After his emotions were cleared and he had recieved all of the hardware, Dirk was ready to invade South Beach party scene and did.

Dirk was at LIV in Miami afterwards. Of course the trophy was there with him since it was the most prized possesion lacked in Dirk's career and the reason to party it up.

Yeaaa there you go Dirk! Bottoms Up...the whole bottle! Jeff Wade knew where to be!

Not your average NBA Champion huh, just cool relaxed and enjoying the moment.

Mavericks Atop The NBA, Win 1st Franchise Championship

Only one team can end their season with the Larry O'Brien Trophy. This 2010-2011 Champions are the Dallas Mavericks hands down. Torn Tendons, massive combacks, horrid shooting slumps, prolific foul shooting were all apart of the Mavericks 4 games to 2 win int he NBA Finals over the Miami Heat.

After two empty trips to the NBA Finals the third was a charm for Jason Kidd, as the 16 year veteran won his first championship of his career with the team and city that drafted him with the 2nd pick in 1994.

Jason Terry will probably go down as one of the players in NBA Finals history with his scoring off the bench in the finals. The 6th Man never really seemed to gripe that much about coming off the pine. Seems him coming off the bench is what the Mavs needed and it's all about winning a title. There were some quiet cheers throughut the city of Seattle as their native born is a champion

Lastly the greatest European player this side of the late Drazen Petrovic lifts that trophy high into the air. Dirk had taken more Heat, no pun intended, than a little bit since the Finals and playoff collaspes the past few seasons. Dirk was so emotion he wasn't even on the floor when the final horn sounded and had to be talked into coming out to celebrate! Dirk you won, live it up. You defeated Hollywood, no go make your movie!

Congrats to the Mavericks on their Championship Win!

Shaq...Hangs It Up, Calls It A Career

The Tweet came at 2:45pm EST from Shaquille O'Neal with a linked attached via tout.com where he told the general public/fans that he was retiring. The retirement is still not "official" but all signs (remember the last time he attempted to run the floor) points to this being a done deal. The class, (or lack of some would say), persona and comedy that Shaq brought in every city, including the ones where he visited as an opponent, will be unmatchable. Even with this whole retirement thing he's having fun. Press conference at the house, sitting a round and trippin' off old times, yea that's so "Shaq". From Orlando to Boston he collected 4 rings in 6 Finals appearances, 15 All-Star selections (13 games played), a lone regular season MVP but those 3 Finals MVP's will suffice, numerous self-given nicknames and bows out with 28,596 career points sitting 5th all-time (until Kobe passes him)

Two Finals appearances in the Magic Kingdom but no rings....

After a trade to LA he spent 8 years and collected championship hardwood 3-times with Kobe Bryant...

After the feud with Kobe, Shaq took his act to South Beach, long before we spoke of "talents" being taken there. His fourth ring would be won (first minus Kobe but a hell of a sidekick in Dwyane Wade was there to aid)

It was then on to Phoenix where he's most remembered for not being able to defend the pick and role as the thirsty "Big Cactus"....

It was then "win a ring for the King" in the place beside the Lake in Cleveland. However it didn't end that way a bum thumb midseason...

And in his elusive pursuit to win that fifth ring, he suited up in Celtic Green which was going just fine until the body said "no more" and it appears he's listened to it...

All in all love him or hate him he, made you laugh, dominated the paint, clanked free throws and won those championships. He didn't change any rules in the paint but he made the engineers of the basket work to prevent him from pulling down the shot clock on his head again, meaning once he could demand the double team it was time to go.

Look for him in a broadcast booth? Come'on you know you'd listen to that commentary next season. He's won and played with other stars that will fill out HD viewing and listening pleasures enroute to their championship pursuit.

All-Time Leader Scorers Open Letter

6-Time NBA Champion Scottie Pippen recently went on air about the potential of current Miami Heat forward Lebron James being the greatest player of all time.

Pippen got some backlash on Twitter and fired back...

So now Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has decided to write Scottie Pippen an open letter in response to those comments. From the LA Times...

Dear Scottie,

I have nothing but respect for you my friend as an athlete and knowledgeable basketball mind. But you are way off in your assessment of who is the greatest player of all time and the greatest scorer of all time. Your comments are off because of your limited perspective. You obviously never saw Wilt Chamberlain play who undoubtedly was the greatest scorer this game has ever known. When did MJ ever average 50.4 points per game plus 25.7 rebounds? (Wilt in the 1962 season when blocked shot statistics were not kept). We will never accurately know how many shots Wilt blocked. Oh, by the way in 1967 and 68, Wilt was a league leader in assists. Did MJ ever score 100 points in a game? How many times did MJ score more than 60 points in a game? MJ led the league in scoring in consecutive seasons for 10 years but he did this in an NBA that eventually expanded into 30 teams vs. when Wilt played and there were only 8 teams.

Every team had the opportunity to amass a solid nucleus. Only the cream of the basketball world got to play then. So MJ has to be appraised in perspective. His incredible athletic ability, charisma and leadership on the court helped to make basketball popular around the world -- no question about that. But in terms of greatness, MJ has to take a backseat to The Stilt.

In terms of winning, Michael excelled as both an emotional and scoring leader but Bill Russell’s Celtics won eight consecutive NBA Championships. Bill's rebounding average per game is over 22.5 lifetime, MJs best rebounding years was eight per game (1989). But we will never know exactly how many shots Bill Russell blocked because again, they never kept that statistic while he played. However, if you ask anybody that played against Russell, they will just roll their eyes and say he blocked all the shots he wanted to block in the crucial moments of a game.

Bill played on a total of 11 championship teams and as you very well know, Scottie, the ring is the thing, and everything else is just statistics. So I would advise you to do a little homework before crowning Michael or LeBron with the title of best ever. As dominant as he is, LeBron has yet to win a championship. I must say that it looks like Miami has finally put the team together that will change that circumstance. Its my hope that today’s players get a better perspective on exactly what has been done in this league in the days of yore.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar,
NBA’s All-Time Leading Scorer

The debate really doesn't have a concrete conclusion but it's fun to talk about, especially when Hall of Famers go at it.
