Knicks “Shutting It Down”, Shot Clock Change, Adams Shouldn’t Work Out In Gym


Carmelo AnthonyIn the NBA, the New York Knicks are the worst performing team in the league.  They have a number of young players who all think they will be traded or cut, and thus seem to be playing with no team chemistry.  Of course they will get a good draft pick, but it’s not exactly fun when they have a superstar like Carmelo Anthony on their team who wants to win.  Because of this, many are speculating that Carmelo will be “shutting it down” for this season.  He doesn’t want to risk injury and would prefer to preserve his health to play on a better Knicks’ team next year or any contender in general.  Sad news for Knicks fan to watch your team give up by “shutting down” your star.

And in college basketball, there is a proposition floating around to officially change the shot clock from 35 seconds to 30 seconds.  This would make the game slightly more challenging both for the players and the coaches, but considering that practically every league in the world uses a 24 second shot clock, yet college basketball still has an additional 11 seconds doesn’t exactly make much sense.  One would have to assume that even if they do reduce the shot clock to 30 seconds, a 24-second change isn’t that far behind.


Finally, in a controversial  story out of college football, star senior Vernon Adams is transferring from the small school Eastern Washington to Oregon next season.  This does happen from time to time, but Eastern Washington’s coach Beau Baldwin has an issue with the transfer.  He says that Adams shouldn’t even be allowed to work out in the Eastern Washington gym.  The coach now considers Adams a competitor, as Eastern Washington will actually be playing Oregon in the opening game of the season.  And it looks like Baldwin will get his way, and Adams will be barred from all athletic facilities at Eastern Washington.
