Worse Air Ball: JaVale McGee Free Throw, Or Travis Wear Putback?

JaVale McGee Air Ball

The Knicks outscored the Nuggets 31-8 in the second quarter on Sunday. During that second quarter stomping that led to a 109-93 win at the Garden — snapping a seven-game losing streak for the Knicks — JaVale McGee suffered the mortifying shame of the air ball on a free throw attempt. Except, that might not have been the worst air ball of the day, as Knicks rookie sub Travis Wear did his best to one-up McGee. Read More »

Video: Trey Burke’s Game-Winning Buzzer-Beater

J.R. Smith, Trey Burke

The Knicks used every ounce of Carmelo Anthony‘s magical shot-making ability, including a banked in three-pointer with just 2.3 seconds remaining to tie the score at 100, but Trey Burke scooted free along the left sideline after setting a screen and drained a step-back along the baseline in J.R. Smith‘s eye to win it at the buzzer. Read More »

J.R. Smith Forgets About ‘Melo On Brick At Buzzer As Knicks Lose Sixth Straight

J.R. Smith

The Knicks lost to the Magic 97-95 last night, their sixth straight game we can lump into the loss column. But with 3.5 seconds left, down two, they had the ball and a chance to either tie it up, or win it with a three-pointer. J.R. Smith took the inbounds, and though Carmelo Anthony can be seen calling for the ball, Smith decided to loft a three-pointer that barely glanced off the rim. Cue eyeroll. Read More »

Video: Amar’e Stoudemire Throws Down The Vintage Hammer On Nikola Vucevic

Amare Stoudemire

The New York Knicks entered into Wednesday night’s matchup against the Orlando Magic looking to change course after dropping their last five games. Amar’e Stoudemire got the Garden rocking early in the second quarter with a monster slam. After setting a pick for teammate J.R. Smith, S.T.A.T. rolled hard to the bucket, caught the sweet bounce pass from Smith, and attacked the rim with fury. Magic center Nikola Vucevic was on the wrong end of Stoudemire’s path, as he ended up as the victim of the powerful posterizing dunk. Read More »

Carmelo Anthony Dons Ridiculous Top Hat, Spawns Typical Internet Amusement

Carmelo Anthony

“If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it.” Assuming you can see over Carmelo Anthony’s ridiculous top hat, that is. After his team was humiliated by the crosstown Brooklyn Nets last night, the New York Knicks superstar donned headwear that could only be a product of “Pure Imagination.” Read More »

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 »
