This won’t the last time we write about this, and it’s certainly not the first, but Stephen A. Smith, in another bit of prevarication this morning on ESPN’s First Take, says that unnamed sources are telling him Carmelo Anthony is still gone this summer in free agency. This comes the morning before Phil Jackson was announced as the new president of basketball operations for the Knicks and ‘Melo’s own excitement at the news. We’re pretty sure we’re going to be writing about ‘Melo’s free agency 50 years from now. Read More »

We finally got here. After what seemed like weeks of back-and-forth in the press and various sources both assuring Knicks fans it was happening while others told them it wasn’t, Phil Jackson was formally introduced as the Knicks “president” today in a press conference that was so many different things, we couldn’t keep up with the jokes on Twitter. Watch James Dolan‘s awkwardness, Phil’s from-the-hip remarks, the Q&A session with media and Steve Mills‘ seeming relief that he’s still, technically, their general manager. Read More »

Our long New York nightmare is over, and no we’re not talking about the Knicks’ season — they won their sixth straight game this afternoon against the visiting Bucks. I’m talking, of course, about all the rumors surrounding the Phil Jackson hire. It’s now official, after Jackson had a lunch meeting Friday with Knicks officials and signed to become president of basketball operations. But the salary amounts being tossed around and the ownership stake are all wrong, as you’ll see. Still, despite zero experience in the front office, Jackson’s hiring has already reverberated around the league, and now a reported LeBron James “confidant” says ‘Bron now will at least look at the Knicks as a possible destination were he to opt out of his contract this summer. Whoa boy, James Dolan guitar riff time. Read More »

After a week of speculation in New York and seemingly everywhere else in the NBA, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports that Phil Jackson has reached an agreement in principle with the New York Knicks to head up their basketball operations. He will have “president” in the title for his new front office gig — the first of his illustrious career.

Trying To Make Sense Of The Phil Jackson Knicks Rumors

Phil Jackson

First, the Knicks were trying to get Phil Jackson to coach even though they have yet to terminate their current coach, Mike Woodson. Next, owner James Dolan hijacked negotiations (â„… Frank Isola) and Phil was joining the front office and the deal was all but done. Now sources tell ESPN’s Chris Broussard the team and Jackson are simply dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s on a contract that would give him autonomy on all basketball-related matters. Except, not everyone’s sources agree, and so we’re left in the muck of rumormongering and conflicting reports about a franchise that’s just as conflicted. Read More »

Lost in the losing shuffle that the Knicks 2013-14 season has become — except during their current winning streak — is embattled forward Amar’e Stoudemire. STAT has been in and out of the lineup over the last couple seasons as he continues to figure out what he can do on knees that have long ago lost the buffer of cartilage. But during New York’s fourth consecutive victory over the Sixers Monday night, Stoudemire showed Thaddeus Young he’s still got some explosion in those worn down knees. Read More »

After initially meeting two weeks ago to discuss coaching the Knicks, the Knicks switched gears when Phil Jackson said that wasn’t going to happen. Instead, the desperate Knicks offered him a position as their president of basketball operations, and it appears Jackson may accept the latter offer, a league source tells ESPN’s Chris Broussard. The Knicks believe the Zen Master is close to saying yes. Read More »

The Knicks won their third straight in Cleveland on Saturday, 107-97, against a Cavs team they’re in direct competition with for a final Eastern Conference playoff berth. Despite the urgency they have to be feeling when they’re still four games back for the No. 8 seed out East with only 18 games remaining, J.R. Smith decided to throw a chaotic alley-oop off the glass to a trailing Amar’e Stoudemire late in the second quarter Saturday night. Except, J Swish threw the ball pretty freakin’ hard, as you’ll see… Read More »
