Seeking an additional opinion on the Knicks' recent hot streak, I called up the pragmatic Jim Cavan (@JPCavan) of Knicker Blogger (ESPN's Truehoop Network) and Bleacher Report to discuss Andrea Bargnani's improved defensive numbers, Raymond Felton's mystique, and Carmelo Anthony's spike in assists. Take a listen.
Let's get one thing straight: the Knicks' season is not saved. For all of the postives you can take from this past five-game winning streak, one could argue there just as many negatives still remaining with the team, like their balky FT%, their lack of a starting two-way PG, and the questionable basketball IQ that's been shown time and time again under the leadership of Mike Woodson.
Kenny Ducey and Eric Mollo dive into the recent suspension handed to Alex Rodriguez, and discuss its affect on the Joint Drug Agreement, the Yankees, and its justification. Additionally, they talk about Rodriguez's chances of winning his lawsuit against MLB & the MLBPA, and update you on various signings throughout the league.

Clark Judge joined Nolan and Matt to discuss the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. The guys first take a look at the Saturday matchups with Clark, including why Seattle has such an advantage at home recently and why the rematch with the Seahawks was such a tough draw for the Saints, even after getting the road win last week in Philly.
Buster Olney seinor writer for ESPN the Magazine was able to join One on One shortly after the breaking news of Alex Rodriguez’s 162 game suspension.

Kenny Ducey and Nick Logerfo quickly recap Wild-Card Weekend and then dive into this weekend's playoff matchups. Kevin Clark NFL columnist for the Wall Street Journal joins the guys to analyze the key matchups for every game. Kevin tells the guys why it'll be tough sledding for Andrew Luck in New England and why the Panthers should edge the 49ers.
Jason Cole columnist for the National Football Post breaks down each of the four Wild-card Weekend games with Mack Rosenberg and Bobby Gubin. He tells the guys why the Eagles have the advantage despite hosting a Superbowl quarterback Drew Brees. Jason also dicusses the effect of the artic chill on the the 49ers, Saints and Chargers, playing up north.
JR Smith's gaffe at the end of Friday night's loss in Houston is hardly an isolated incident. There's been an unsightly pattern of mental errors committed by the Knicks, putting their chances of victory in jeopardy, and that must fall on the head coach.
