Everyone who follows the Cavaliers, media and fans, all agree that the January 5 trade with the New York Knicks that brought J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert gave the team the needed push and it has resulted in 16 wins in 18 games and the team to a 35-22 record and a definitely threat in the Eastern Conference.

Sunday afternoon, Smith and Shumpert made their first return to the Big Apple and played well in Cleveland’s 101-83 win over the Knicks.

Smith scored 17 points and Shumpert came off the bench for four points, five rebounds and seven assists.

Sunday’s game was really over early as the Cavs built up a 36-17 lead in the first quarter and a 62-38 advantage at the half. From there, it was just a matter of what the final score would be.

Cleveland’s big three pulled their weight as well.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving each scored 18 points and Kevin Love finished with 16 points while hauling down 16 rebounds. James during the game moved past Allen Iverson and into 22nd place on the NBA career scoring list with 24,383 points.

The Knicks, who have had several losing streaks this season with a 10-45 record, have now lost seven in a row, were led by Langston Galloway with 13 points.

New York Jets sign LaDainian Tomlinson

The New York Jets and the Big Apple have opened their welcoming arms to LaDainian Tomlinson.

The former Chargers star has signed a two-year contract worth about $5.2 million. The Jets signed the aging star to the NFL’s top-ranked offense of 172.2 yards per game to replace Thomas Jones, who was cut and later signed by Kansas City.

The Jets reached the AFC championship game last season, eliminating the Chargers and Tomlinson in the semi-finals.

The 2006 NFL MVP chose New York over Minnesota. The 31-year-old ranks eighth on the NFL’s career rushing list with 12, 490 yards.

Tomlinson chose the New York Jets for another reason. He is familiar with the Jets’ style of offense and coordiantor Brian Schottenheimer, who was the Chargers quarterbacks coach from 2002-2005.

The Jets have already begun to sell $80.00 green and white replica jerseys on their website.
