– Amar’e Stoudemire has been cleared to practice. He hopes to play in the season opener.

– Kenyon Martin is still rehabbing the ankle injury he suffered last season and his status for the opener remains uncertain, as the Knicks would like to handle him carefully so that he can contribute long-term.

– Iman Shumpert is not practicing today, but doctors examined his arm and found nothing major. It is believed that he will be fine with a few days of rest.

– Raymond Felton pulled his hamstring, and is not practicing today. However, he says that he would play if it were a regular season game.

– Metta World Peace is back in practice.

– JR Smith is making progress in his rehab from his knee injury, but will still miss at least the first five games due to his suspension for recreational drug use.

ROUND 3

Division 1

Matchup 1

#1 Knicks crush Heat on opening day after Sandy, Sheed hits first 3.

VERSUS

 

#2 JR Smith’s ridiculous alley-oop from Pablo Prigioni

Analysis: A night-long beatdown full of emotion, great basketball, and Sheed squares off against a play that took 2 seconds to be completed, but still astounds the viewer six months later.

 

Division 2

Matchup 2

 

#1 Iman Shumpert’s putback slam

VERSUS

 

#3 JR Smith hits 2 buzzer beaters vs Charlotte, Phoenix.

 

Analysis: Shumpert’s dunk was a more spectacular play on a much bigger stage, but both of JR’s shots delivered wins (albeit against 2 miserable teams) and some awesome salsa dancing. Both moments were phenomenal… which was better?

 

The decision is yours to make. Which 2 moments will advance to the finals? Cast your votes!
