J.R. Smith On Knicks’ Triangle Offense: “It’s Almost Too Much Thinking”

J.R. Smith

Much has been made of the triple-post offense — more popularly known as the Triangle — the Knicks are running this year. Most gripe it doesn’t work in the contemporary game, and J.R.

One fast break even provided a glimmer of entertainment on an otherwise frustrating night for Knicks fans. Read More »

Which Air Ball Was Worse: Shabazz Muhammad’s Jam, Or Cole Aldrich’s Hook?

Cole Aldrich, Shabazz Muhammad

It seemed like we saw these within the same five-minute span as we were looking at clips from tonight.

Then there was poor Knicks center, Cole Aldrich, who Deadspin called a goober, after he missed a hook shot so wide right the ball ends up breaking all known physical laws and hits the back of the backboard. But which one was worse? We have the answer after the jump. Read More »

Carmelo Anthony, Derek Fisher

He missed his fifth game of the season tonight, and a lingering pain in his left knee has plagued Carmelo Anthony since the second game of the season.

Video: ‘Melo Dallies On Defense, Adding Fuel To Anti-Anthony Commentary

Carmelo Anthony

Oh well. We’ve tried to make excuses for Carmelo Anthony since this season started. We were confident in our stance after ‘Melo jilted the Cavs’ honeymoon homecoming in Cleveland for LeBron James, but since then it’s been one loss after another, with Anthony squandering contested games with contested jumpers in the closing minutes. His defense on a Rudy Gay breakaway early in last night’s OT loss to the Kings might signal the death knoll of our belief the ‘Cuse title winner can figure it out this season — his twelfth in the Association.
