GIF: J.R. Smith’s Spinning No-Look Dime To Cole Aldrich

Alan Anderson, J.R. Smith

The Knicks were awful last night. Just dreadful, and Carmelo Anthony continued to struggle shooting the ball (he’s just 10-for-41 in his last two games, both Knicks losses). The Nets jumped all over their intra-city rivals in a 110-99 game that was actually a lot worse before the Knicks partially recovered in the fourth. About the only positive for the Knicks was a slinky spin move by J.R. Smith before he scooped a no-look dime to Cole Aldrich. Read More »

GIF: Jason Smith Badly Rejects Josh Smith

Jason Smith, Josh Smith

Jason Smith is not known as an elite rim protector. New York’s somewhat stiff power forward was even used as an insulting comparison when Dan Le Batard was making fun of LeBron and the Cavs on Twitter last week. But the Amar’e Stoudemire replacement at the four certainly rose to the defense challenge when Josh Smith tried to thump it on him last night… Read More »

Video: J.R. Smith Hits Glen Rice, Jr. Below The Belt; Fine, Suspension Coming?

Glen Rice, Jr.

Cruel world, the NBA. As Glen Rice, Jr. played pressure defense on J.R. Smith near halfcourt in the Washington Wizards’ win over the New York Knicks last night, Rice suddenly goes down in a heap when Smith begins his drive. There’s nothing notable about the sequence on the surface, and a foul was even called on the Wizards’ shooting guard. But a discerning eye catches what the officials obviously didn’t – Smith aggressively extending his left arm to Rice’s groin while putting the ball on the floor. Read More »

Lance Stephenson’s Fluky Videobomb Turns Into Meme

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 »

Video: ‘Melo Hits Go-Ahead Winner Over Hornets

Carmelo Anthony

New York’s often whiny population of Knicks fans were preparing for a snark-filled 2014-15 campaign after Chicago’s 20-plus point win in the Garden to start the season. With the Cavs up next and the Hornets this past weekend, a 0-3 start was a very real possibility. But the Knicks ruined Cleveland’s opener and played well again back at home on Sunday in a 96-93 win over the Hornets punctuated by a historic accomplishment from Carmelo Anthony and the go-ahead bucket in the last minutes.

Dan Le Batard Mocks Cavs And LeBron On Twitter

LeBron James

New uniforms, new court, the NBA’s best player returning to his hometown to play in a nationally televised home debut while a coterie of all-stars surround him. Check, check, check and check. Still, the Knicks played spoiler last night, 95-90 on TNT, when LeBron James and the Cavs came out flat to start the 2014-15 NBA season. As a result, Miami sports columnist and radio host Dan Le Batard, a frequent LeBron and Cavs foil ever since Decision 2.0 was announced, exhibited quite a bit of schadenfreude on Twitter during and after Cleveland’s stunning opening home loss.

GIF: Derrick Rose Goes High Off The Glass To Finish

Derrick Rose

The Chicago Bulls cruised past the Knicks at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night, 104-80, and they didn’t even need a spectacular game from returning point guard Derrick Rose. He was relatively quiet in his 21 minutes of action, but he did manage to drop a wrong-footed floater high off the glass. Read More »

Carmelo Says He “Wouldn’t Know How To Deal With” Knicks Missing Playoffs

Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony says the New York Knicks will “absolutely” make the playoffs this season. While that seems wishful thinking, it’s no doubt more heartening for the high-scoring superstar to believe than admitting his team’s current reality – especially given his extreme discomfort with it. Of the Knicks missing the playoffs for a second consecutive season, Anthony says he “wouldn’t know how to deal” with such disappointment. Read More »

Amar’e Stoudemire’s “Not Sure” Why He’s Coming Off The Bench, So We’ll Tell Him

Amar'e Stoudemire

The former all-star, Taylor Swift chum and sommelier-in-training, Amar’e Stoudemire, is listed as the New York Knicks’ backup center on the eve of their opener tomorrow night against Chicago. When the New York Post caught up with Stoudemire, and coach Derek Fisher, Amar’e couldn’t make sense of his bench role after Andrea Bargnani went down with an injury in preseason. Read More »
