Goran Dragic: Knicks Are “Possibility” In Free Agency; Praises Phil Jackson

Jose Calderon, Goran Dragic

The Suns beat the Knicks on Saturday, 99-90. Despite the win, Goran Dragic hasn’t been up to his All-NBA Third Team performance from last year. Saturday’s victory was Dragon’s second game back from a back injury. Still, the Suns point guard will be highly coveted this summer in free agency, and his comments after the game went a long way towards putting the Knicks in contention. Read More »

Michael Jordan

The NBA isn’t like other professional sports in America; they play on Christmas. Not only do they play, but the games on the national holiday signal a focal point for most NBA observers and a day when it’s finally appropriate to take stock of the first quarter of the NBA season. With Christmas approaching this week, we thought it would make sense to count down the 10 biggest Christmas Day moments in NBA history, culminating in our top two choices on Christmas Eve 2014.

GIF: A Pair Of Terrence Ross Rim-Rattlers Against Knicks

Quincy Acy, Terrence Ross

The Knicks continue to swim at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, and Sunday’s game against the Raptors was no different. They lost, 118-108, despite Carmelo Anthony‘s 28 points. Raptors wing Terrence Ross, who has had to shoulder more of an offensive load in DeMar DeRozan‘s absence, also found time to throw down a couple jams, the second of which looked like he floated to the rim.

Suns’ Isaiah Thomas To Knicks’ Pablo Prigioni: “You’re F****** Flopping!”

Isaiah Thomas, Pablo Prigioni

The New York Knicks should be doing whatever it takes to win at this point. But that doesn’t mean those potentially shoddy acts of sportsmanship are any easier for their opponents to stomach. After Pablo Prigioni wildly flailed his body upon minimal (at best) defensive contact from Isaiah Thomas, watch the Phoenix Suns’ diminutive guard tell his European counterpart, “You’re f****** flopping!” Read More »

Carmelo Anthony

The New York Knicks are going nowhere this season and Carmelo Anthony is hobbled by lingering knee pain. Might it be prudent for the high-scoring superstar to take some time off and heal properly? We think so, but Anthony insists he isn’t entertaining the possibility despite the advice of so many that he do so. Read More »

Phil Jackson To Commentating Barkley: “Do I Have To Mute This Game?”

Phil Jackson, Charles Barkley

On Thursday night, Charles Barkley was working the Bulls-Knicks game not from TNT studios with the rest of the “Inside the NBA” crew, but court-side in Chicago where he was acting as a color commentator. Knicks president Phil Jackson was also watching the telecast on TNT and eventually threatened to mute Chuck in a tweet because of Barkley’s comments about the much-maligned triple-post offense.

Tyson Chandler Says He Feels Sorry For Carmelo Anthony Amid Knicks Woes

Tyson Chandler, Carmelo Anthony

Tyson Chandler’s departure from the New York Knicks was contentious. Phil Jackson did everything but outright call him a cancer, and the 2012 Defensive Player of the Year responded aggressively. But bonds forged through basketball supersede such talk, and Chandler hates to see a certain former teammate struggle to lift the Big Apple’s team from its nadir. Read More »

Report: ‘Melo Would Consider Waiving No-Trade Clause; ‘Melo Denies Report

Carmelo Anthony

The Knicks are in shambles. They’re losers of their last 10 and bottom feeders in the weak Eastern Conference with more losses (20) than anyone else in the NBA; yes, even the lowly Sixers. Less than a week after a report about strife fracturing the team from within — most notably Carmelo Anthony purportedly threatening to “beat up” Tim Hardaway, Jr. on the court — a new report from the New York Post‘s Marc Berman alleges that Anthony would be willing to waive his rare no-trade clause if Knicks president Phil Jackson can find a willing trade partner with a team ‘Melo wants to join.
