Sports: Kristaps Porzingis Was Ready To Be ‘Booed’ But His Goal Was Always To Be Great (Video)

I wasn’t too sure about the Knicks draft pick, but in this first few games he’s proven to not be shook. Hoping to see more great things from this kid in the NBA. Word to “Godzingis.”

Kristaps Porzingis is a smash hit as a high-flying rookie for the New York Knicks. But it wasn’t too long ago that he was mercilessly booed by Knicks’ fans on draft night. We sit passenger side with Kristaps as he explains how he blocks out the negativity and the optimal methods for getting into your opponents head.

Stay Melo: Carmelo Anthony Goes To Rikers Island (Video)

Great stuff! VICE is keeping the heat on the prison industry by taking the cameras back inside. First President Obama does a special at a Federal prison; now Carmelo Anthony visits Rikers Island for this episode of “Stay Melo.” Impactful, especially for Melo, touring the jail facility and meeting a group of young prisoners. Growing up, he knew folks who’d done time and came back home. But being inside like this, even knowing he would eventually leave, was very different.

I’m not sure what I expected. I knew it wasn’t going to be pleasant. And, it wasn’t. At all. It was extremely disturbing.

Trying To ‘Stay Melo’ In New York: Speaking On The State Of The Knicks and The NY State Of Mind (Video)

“New York is the greatest city on the planet, I think. But you’re not a New Yorker if you don’t wake up some days and be like ‘man, f#ck this place.’”

Toto Melo, we’re not in Kansas Cuba Puerto Rico anymore. We’re back in the NYC for this ep; and we may as well get used to it…

In the third episode of Stay Melo we stick around New York City and hit Melo’s personal gym at Terminal 23 to see him get ready for the season with former teammate Iman Shumpert. Then we head to Red Hook, Brooklyn to track down Melo’s childhood home and visit the studio of street artist Swoon. Along the way Melo dishes on his relationship with New York and struggles with the media.

Carmelo Anthony Goes To Puerto Rico, To ‘Stay Melo’ In The Hood To Do Some Good And More (Video)

New Stay Melo ep on VICE Sports for y’all. Last one was about Cuba. This time it’s Puerto Rico.

Carmelo Anthony recognizes, like most looking outside in, that Puerto Rico is currently in economic decline. But to Melo it’s a place of family, opportunity and a growing sports culture. He goes to chill (Melo out, if you will) but also to do some goodwill and good work. Spent a few days training with a group of fellow Knicks, seeing the stadium that will house his Puerto Rico FC NASL team, riding out to La Perla (one of Puerto Rico’s most notorious hoods), hanging out with reggaeton legend Tempo (home after a 12 year prison bid) at one of the b-ball courts Melo has refurbished for the community and more stuff.

Sure, ballers are in the League…balling. But with all that wealth, if you aren’t doing something…you got nothing! Just saying. Now, watch and listen as Melo does something; and shares and wrestles with his vision for what he’d like to accomplish in PR.

Carmelo Anthony Goes To Cuba To Cover Soccer, Soak In The Culture and Scoop Some Cigars (Video)

Very dope. And the time is right. Soccer (e.g. football, futbol) being the world sport it is, America being a leading sports nation, and Melo being a leading sportsman from America…

Throughout the NBA off-season VICE Sports and Carmelo Anthony are exploring street sport cultures around the world. In our premiere episode, Melo travels to Cuba to explore the rise of soccer in a nation synonymous with baseball, ride a 1950s drop top in the rain, and grab some fresh rolled Cuban cigars along the way.

Carmelo was a good choice for a correspondent, too. This VICE Sports piece felt more like interesting leisure than intense learning; enriching experience captured on video either way.

Talking ‘Bout Biggie And More: NBA’s John Starks Has Answers For ESPN’s ‘Highly Questionable’ (Video)

This episode of ESPN’s Highly Questionable will be highly memorable for one reason: Starks stuck to the ‘G’ Code… No snitching! Former NBA standout John Starks declares that Notorious B.I.G.’s song “I Got A Story To Tell” was not about him. It was about one of his New York Knicks teammates… You can guess all you want though… ’cause Starks will NOT speak on it!

But watch the whole video though. Memories and chuckles shared by the bag boy turned pro baller Starks.

The Atlanta Hawks Experience The ‘Lin-sanity’ Of The New York Knicks (Video)

Not much of a contest as the New York Knicks route the Hawks as “Supa Lin-tendo” mania continues.

NY Knicks Jeremy Lin Speaks On His Musical Tastes (Video)

New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin aka “Super-Lintendo” took a minute with Fuse to speak on his music tastes & artists he’s feeling. Being a devout Christian it shouldn’t be a surprise that his two favorite artists would be grounded in Christianity in some way.  After ESPN’s recent controversially racist “Chink In The Armour” headline following the Knicks loss Friday, Jeremy maybe thinking “They need Jesus” & gone ahead & forgive them by sending ESPN writers some music from Christian rapper Lecrae and Christian rock band Hillsong.

Carmelo Anthony Appears On The ‘Conan O’Brien’ Show Hours Before Trade Announced (Video)

Just a few hours before the trade to the New York Knicks was announced Carmelo Anthony appeared on the Conan O’Brien show. The problem for late night talk show hosts like Conan is their shows are usually taped & aired later in the evening. Rumors of Carmelo being traded to the Knicks began immediately after they taped the show only to be confirmed before this show aired.
