Knicks’ J.R. Smith and Carmelo Anthony Tear Up Private NYC Pickup Game

You could search your entire life and never find a sight as rare as New York Knicks working together in the wild.

Like stumbling upon a black pearl in the surf, TMZ uncovered footage of J.R. Smith and Carmelo Anthony playing in a recent private pickup game with fellow pros at a New York City gym.

The website reports Smith and Anthony played with Lance Stephenson, David Lee and Chris Douglas-Roberts at the Terminal 23 basketball facility in Manhattan this month. 

Based on the footage TMZ recovered, the two New York Knicks cleaned up the joint. Anthony rained unguarded triples from behind the arc while Smith threw down a couple of high percentage field goals.

Here’s a shot taken earlier this August of Smith and Anthony hanging out at Terminal 23.

TMZ reports the two Knicks won their pickup game.

Isn’t it beautiful when Knicks play effectively together? It’s a rare, soul-stirring moment—like seeing the Halley’s Comet of basketball and knowing deep down you’ll be dead before it happens again.

Kobe Bryant Takes over High School Game in 1995 Footage

Kobe Bryant has been taking over basketball games and breaking his opponents’ hearts since 1995. In this footage from his junior year at Lower Merion High School, a young Kobe showed his unbreakable will to win.

Kobe led his team to a 75-70 playoff win over Norristown Area High School by scoring 29 of his 35 points in the second half. And with his killer instinct on full display, he went on to be named Pennsylvania Player of the Year.

(Skip to the 10-minute mark to see the Kobe highlights.)

It was easy to see the talent that Kobe possessed at a young age, but what stands out was his leadership and willingness to take on the responsibility of doing what it takes to win. 

Even at 16, he was the same Kobe whom we know and love.
