SNUBBED: Tim Hardaway Jr left off Rookie-Sophomore Game roster

snub

Tim Hardaway Junior led last year’s Rookie-Sophomore game at All-Star Weekend with 36 points.
Tim Hardaway made the All-Rookie First Team last year.

New York City is hosting All-Star Weekend this year.

So Tim Hardaway junior is locked in for a spot in the game this year, right? Wrong.

The rosters for this year’s Rising Stars Challenge, to be played at the Barclays Center on All-Star Friday, were announced on Wednesday, and Hardaway is not on the list. Hardaway lit up the event last year, and brings the flair that All-Star Weekend is all about, but barring an injury, Timmy will watch the event from the sidelines (if at all) this time around.

It is important to note that the NBA is going with a USA-vs-World format, so there were probably fewer spots up for grabs than usual when it came to American prospects. Dante Exum and Bojan Bogdanovic have worse stats, are less popular, and are less deserving based on their pasts. But they aren’t American, so they got spots on the team. I’ll go ahead and say it: it really seems like a “race thing,” (not based on color, but on country of origin, in this case).

Here are the rosters

Tim Hardaway Jr Named to All-Rookie First Team

Image

Knicks Rookie Tim Hardaway Junior was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team, the league announced Thursday. Hardaway fell all the way to #24 in the draft, where he was selected by the Knicks, and was very impressive in his rookie campaign. Hardaway joins Victor Oladipo, Michael Carter-Williams, Mason Plumlee, and his Michigan teammate Trey Burke on the First Team. 

Congrats, Timmy!

Knicks, Raptors discussing Kyle Lowry trade

Image

The Knicks and Raptors are discussing a trade that would send Kyle Lowry to New York. The Knicks’ latest offer is Raymond Felton, Metta World Peace, and a 2018 first round pick for the 27 year-old Lowry, who is averaging 14.6 points, 6.7 assists, and 3.8 rebounds, and 1.8 steals per game this season. 

Knicks fans have long complained about the lack of a dynamic point guard, and the grumblings have grown louder this season thanks to Felton’s injury and resulting poor level of play. Felton will miss the next 2-3 weeks with the hamstring problem which has been ailing him, but as the Raptors are trying to set themselves up to “tank”, this seemingly will not be a roadblock in negotiations. I would like to see the Knicks keep a draft pick for once, but a draft pick 5 years down the road, an injured point guard in Felton, and an aging, deteriorating Metta World Peace wouldn’t be too much to give up for Lowry, especially considering that the Knicks would gain a bit more payroll flexibility. If the Knicks can manage to bring in a point guard without losing Iman Shumpert or Tim Hardaway Jr., that doesn’t seem like a bad deal.

Tim Hardaway Jr. Yells “Party Time!” On the Way Up For A Big Slam…. OR DOES HE?

A Nickname is born: “Party Time”

Update: It happened again during the next game, but according to Hardaway,  it was Shump yelling. Apparently, every time Shump sets somebody up for a dunk, he’s going to scream out “Party Time”, which is gonna be pretty awesome.

UPDATE 2: I’m calling shenanigans here. In today’s scrimmage, Hardaway dunked and appears to have yelled “party time” on the way up. Was he lying to us on twitter? I think Tim is the secret yeller. The mystery continues!!!
