The Knicks were the team to watch for while with, “Linsanity,” taking over and a seven game winning streak. The Knicks have lost eight out of ten games since Carmelo’s return from an injury. Something must be done to change the team’s spirit and get them winning games. What is the best option?
Chris Paul had an All Star pick up game in his home state of North Carolina for his CP3 Foundation. Players included Chris Paul, Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, John Wall, Rudy Gay, Josh Selby, J.R. Smith and more. Check the video for highlights and the slideshow for pictures.
In 2005, Chris and his family established the CP3 Foundation, a philanthropic partnership with The Winston-Salem Foundation in honor of his late grandfather. The CP3 Foundation was founded to highlight his dedication both to his grandfather’s spirit and to the Winston-Salem, NC community that nurtured him from his days as a stand-out high school student-athlete to a national star at Wake Forest University.
The foundation, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the last five years, focuses on enriching the communities of Winston-Salem and New Orleans through initiatives including the Nathaniel Jones Scholarship Fund, in memory of Chris’ grandfather. The scholarship enables a Forsyth County student to attend Wake Forest University.
The Knicks faced the Celtics with Billups out the game and Amare Stoudemire getting injured in the first quarter. The Knicks still managed to put themselves in a position to win with Carmelo dropping 42 points and 17 rebounds. But down by 1 with a few seconds left, Jared Jefferies had a turnover that robbed the Knicks of a chance to make a game winning shot.
