The Knicks need to go 4-0 to finish the season, coupled with a 1-3 stretch by the Hawks if they want to make the playoffs as the eight seed in the Eastern Conference. But in a season rife with disappointment and discord within the team as they plummeted from mid-tier playoff contender to also-ran, coach Mike Woodson has been — perhaps justifiably — on the hot seat as the feasibility of a playoff series drifts closer to an impossibility. Following the Phil Jackson hire as New York’s head of basketball operations, the Zen Master has largely remained mum about Woodson’s job performance, which most likely means only a miracle will save Woodson’s job.

J.R. Smith

There are many ways to describe J.R. Smith. In January, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports labeled him the NBA’s “clown prince” and as a “soft, spoiled, suburban jump-shooter.” Just days later, New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson called upon his controversial player to become “more of a pro.” Both of these takes are certainly valid, but since the early season distractions, J.R. Smith has been a different type of player. He has kept his mouth shut, his hands off of opponents’ shoelaces and instead, he is focusing on his job: the game of basketball. Read More »

Kobe Bryant

The shooting guard position is a thing of beauty. Michael Jordan came into the league and dominated his spot and the NBA like no other player has ever done. Aside from Jordan, other players such as Clyde Drexler, Jerry West, Earl Monroe and many others were, at one point in time, considered one of the top talents at shooting guard. Read More »

John Wall

The NBA Playoffs provides a unique landscape. After 82 games are played, eight teams from each conference are pitted against each other in the NBA’s version of The Hunger Games. At the front of this battle are the stars of each respective team. Some are coming into the playoffs with high expectations, while some are just happy to be here. Let’s put it this way, the Wizards and Bobcats are happy just to be in the playoffs whereas teams like the Pacers and Thunder won’t be satisfied without holding a trophy. Read More »

Sometimes you’re just feeling it, and that’s how J.R. Smith has felt over the last three games where he’s connected on six, then eight, and now 10 three-pointers in consecutive games (an NBA record for a three-game total with 24).

Even though he’s under contract through the 2014-15 season, and has a player option for 2015-16, Kevin Love has turned into the player du jour as we come up on the end of the 2013-14 season. A source familiar with Love’s thinking tells ESPN Los Angeles, it’s not just LA that’s an appealing destination if he were traded , but also Chicago and New York.

Nick Young Mistakenly Celebrates Missed 3-Pointer

Nick Young

The Knicks were dreadful on Tuesday night at the Staples Center when they took on a Lakers team that’s currently in last place in the Pacific Division. LA clobbered the Knicks by 31 in a rout and Nick Young was fantastic from beyond the three-point line, knocking down five of his six attempts. But that lone three-point attempt he did miss, he thought he made, and the TNT guys had some chuckles after his mini celebration before realizing his mistake. Read More »

Michael Jordan

The trajectory of a player’s career doesn’t always include the storybook ending of playing in the location that meant most to them. Often times, you’ll find veterans bouncing from franchise to franchise, what you might call ring chasing. As you’ll see in the case of the veterans on this list, the traditional colors they wore throughout their career were sometimes traded in for the colors of a team they rode the bench with.
