@SportsBata ..nuff said
#NBA #OKC rocked the #LA Lakers, #Knicks legend (Bernard) King missed the HOF, and winningest coach (Don) Nelson made it into the HOF! The HOF inductees will be officially announced on Monday!
#DerekFisherreturnstoLA The Oklahoma City Thunder rocked the LA Lakers, 102-93, last night! In the tale of new vs. old, the new prevailed! The Lakers held a lead, but it gradually disappeared as the game progressed! #OKC PG Russell Westbrook was on a mission scoring game-high 36 points! @KDTrey5 added 21 points and 11 boards for #OKC! #Kobe got 23 points, but on a horrid 7-25 shooting, and Metta World Peace pulled nine boards, but shot 3-13 for the Lakers! Lakers Andrew Bynum was solid with 25 points and 13 boards!
#OKC Derek Fisher returned to LA for the first time since they traded him away! Fisher played along side #Kobe through 13 seasons and five Championships!
“It’s fair to say I’m quite disappointed,’’ King told The Post Thursday. “I was not selected this year with the 2012 class. Obviously, I’m honored to be a finalist. I think it would be a tremendous honor for my family if I’m inducted. It would be wonderful.’’
“My professional career and what I did in college and even high school merits selection and hopefully one day I’ll have the opportunity to be inducted,’’ King said.
“I know the move he’s going to make before he makes it,’’ King said [speaking of #Melo]. – nypost
#Melo’s idol, former Knicks and Nets legend, Bernard King missed the HOF! On a positive it was Kings second time making the list of 18 finalist, and fifth time on the ballot! King is disappointed he didn’t make the Hall, but honored that he made the list of finalist. King was born and raised in Brooklyn and dominated Fort Hamilton High; averaging 28 points and 26 boards per game! He went on to be a three-time All-Star, averaged 22.5 ppg over his career, and led the league in scoring in the 1984-85 season; averaging 32.9 ppg on the Knicks squad! King, 55, started his career on the NJ Nets from 1977-79 and returned there in 1993. He played on the Knicks from 1982-86. His career was shortened with a torn ACL, and only played 874 career games. He is #Melo role model, and #Melo even patterned some of his moves after the Knicks legend! Check out his comments above!
#NBA winningest coach of all-time Don Nelson is headed to the Hall of Fame this weekend! Nelson, 71, posted 1,335 wins over 31 seasons as head coach of the Bucks, Warriors, Knicks and Mavericks! Surprisingly Nelson won five #NBA Championships as players with the Boston Celtics, but never won one as a coach!
