Team President Phil Jackson On Knicks: “We Have A Loser’s Mentality”

Phil Jackson

Rookie coach Derek Fisher is using scripture to ensure the New York Knicks can see a forest of future success through the trees of their current struggles. If you’re to believe president Phil Jackson, his team will stay blind unless it improves its attitude.

Bible Passage Greets Nosediving New York Knicks

Derek Fisher

“Then it came about after all your wickedness ‘Woe, woe to you!’ declares the Lord GOD” in Ezekial 16:23. He’s probably talking about the Knicks and all of us heathens in New York City. The Knicks, 4-18 and losers of their last eight, are in 14th place in the LEastern Conference, and that’s only because the Pistons and Sixers share the same conference. After Sunday’s 103-99 loss to the Blazers — yet another close one — the Knicks turned towards an optimistic bible passage on their whiteboard to keep battling through the historic amount of losing they’ve experienced to start the season.

Derek Fisher, Lance Stephenson

Before Carmelo Anthony sealed the 96-93 win for the Knicks last night, Lance Stephenson heaved a desperation three-pointer, but he wasn’t able to get it off before the remaining eight-tenths of a second expired. Lance still thought he had been fouled on the attempt, and when he got up from the court to wonder at the no-call, his mug happened to pop up just as the camera was panning over to Knicks head coach Derek Fisher. A surprisingly funny meme was born. Read More »

J.R. Smith Says Learning Triangle Offense “Is Going To Take A Few Months”

J.R. Smith, Derek Fisher

The Knicks have a new coach and a new system in place with Derek Fisher taking over for Mike Woodson this year to help implement the somewhat anachronistic triangle offense — supplanting Woody’s more traditional sets last year. The inchoate nature of triangle for the team was on full display during New York’s 106-86 loss to Boston in their preseason opener last night, and J.R. Smith tells the New York Post‘s Fred Kerber, “It’s going to take some time.” Read More »

Shumpert Is Excited About Doing More On Offense Than “Standing In The Corner”

Iman Shumpert

Iman Shumpert’s 2013-2014 was among the most disappointing in basketball. As trade rumors swirled around him from last season’s outset, the two-way prowess that made Shumpert one of the league’s most promising young wings the year before all but vanished entirely. He notched career lows in points per game and field goal percentage, dipped from 40.2 percent to 33.3 percent from beyond the arc, and let his uncertain status as a member of the New York Knicks affect his effort on the other end of the floor, too.

Can The Knicks Land LeBron & ‘Melo, Or Even Durant?

Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant

On ESPN New York’s 98.7 FM’s “The Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco Show,” co-host Smith mentioned a “95 percent possibility” LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony end up together if they both opt-in for the 2014-15 seasons. Not only that, but New York’s recent hiring of Derek Fisher could entice Kevin Durant to the Big Apple if he’s unhappy in OKC when his contract expires in the summer of 2016. Read More »
