The Knicks believe in Peace but are they just chasing headlines?  With the acquisition of the artist formerly known as Ron Artest, the Knickerbockers bring in an enforcer, a tough nosed guy with a Charles Oakley type mentality.  Many believe (myself included) that Metta will help protect Melo from having to guard players like David West and Carlos Boozer.  Yes I know Peace is a wing player, but he’s stronger than Melo and who’s gonna punk him out?  Throw a beer on him and see how quick he turns back into Ron Ron.  The question is this move necessary?  The Knicks need a big man that can rebound, defend and backup Chandler and although I like the move.  If not for what Brooklyn has been doing this offseason would the move have been made?  At the end of the day on paper the Knicks are still the 5th best team in the east (Heat, Pacers, Bulls, and Nets), but having three defensive minded players (Tyson, Shump, and Peace) doesn’t hurt.

Onto my thoughts….

1. Pouncey brother’s with a “FREE HERNANDEZ” hat… Really!!!!
2. Tim Lincecum 148 pitches on a no-hitter congrats, but that joker won’t pitch again for a month.
3. Chris Davis 37home runs at the break.  Oh yeah please believe more tests are coming.
4. So everyone pushes for the #voteforFreddie campaign and now he isn’t playing because he jammed his thumb?  C’mon Son, should have went with Puig.
5. I like Carson Palmer as a sleeper in fantasy football this year he’s playing with the best receiver and offensive coach he’s ever had.
6. Derrick Rose is officially now 100%.  In July… Really!!!!  C’mon Son.
7. Is it me or does it seem like some players in the NBA Summer league look like they never played the game before.
8. Jay-z line of the week “I brought sand to the beach cuz my beach is better” classic Jay.  And once again Jay-Z doesn’t need the advertising from me.
9. George Zimmerman found not guilty.  Really, so in Florida you can shoot an unarmed black kid and get away with it?  Next you will tell me that Casey Anthony can have/get another kid…  Wait, you got to be kidding me, smh
10. Quote of the week from @hubbuchNYP “Aaron Hernandez’s lawyers just filed a motion to have his trial moved to Sanford, FL”
