After another great NBA season in 2014, many fans are waiting in anticipation for what will happening in next year’s competition. The San Antonio Spurs came out on top last time out, with a 4-1 victory in games over Miami Heat, as you can catch them at 9/2 to retain their crown. The Heat are still up with the best, but now star man LeBron James has moved back to Cleveland, some bookmakers are quoting them as long as 16/1. But the Cavaliers are befitting from the return of James, being touted at 4/1. With the off-season drafts currently taking place, what are the chances of a team from the Big Apple going for glory in 2015?

The New York Knicks are one of the most world famous teams in the NBA and are regarded as the most valuable basketball in the world, but their on-field performances have been disappointing. The 2014 season ended with the Knicks finishing 9th in the Eastern Conference and out of the play-off places. As the Knicks’ season ended, Mike Woodson and his coaching staff were fired and replaced by Derek Fisher, a man with 5 championship titles to his name as a player. With the acquisition of Wayne Ellington and Jose Calderon, Fisher will be hoping to be bring the championship back to New York and the MSG for the first time since 1973, and with odds of 40/1, stranger things have happened. It may be worth backing the Knicks to secure a play-off place as a safer bet. Of course this does complicate things when it comes to betting, but if you feel too unsure which side will come out on top, Slam Dunk should be a pretty good alternative.

After all, this is a slot machine and can be found at http://www.gamingclub.com/au. It is always the kind of online casino game that is easiest for new players to get to grips with. Not that this simplicity makes Slam Dunk dull, because the two bonus rounds – where you have the chance to really up your payout – will be great fun for any NBA fan. These fans will also love the basketball images on the screen, from cheerleaders, trainers and players on the reels to the basketball court background, and the number 23 shirt wild icon (the Michael Jordan number). Meanwhile everyone will love the 45,000-coin jackpot, whether they enjoy basketball or not, so Slam Dunk is not only for the NBA fan to play.

Carmelo Anthony is officially locked up, but Knicks fans always have their eye on the next move. No offense to Jason Smith, but New York City dreams big, and most fans already have their eye on guys like Kevin Love and Rajon Rondo, who will both be without a contract after next season. Of course, there’s no guarantee that they’ll even hit free agency, and teams have already started lining up trade offers. In this edition of the TOK Roundtable, the staff debates whether or not Phil Jackson should give up Iman Shumpert AND Tim Hardaway Jr. to acquire one of these superstars.

Welcome Back, Carmelo Anthony!

I’ve been pretty adamant about not caring whether Carmelo Anthony re-signed with the Knicks or not. It had nothing to do with the player. Maybe it was the sting from 2010 disallowing me to get too hyped up about another free agent failure, but the way I saw it, the Knicks were going to have …

New York Knicks Summer League: Stock Up, Stock Down – Game One

Nothing beats the dog days of summer like a little basketball.
