The New York Knicks have been the most disappointing team in the NBA this year, sitting in ninth place in the Eastern Conference at 33-45. Last season the Knicks finished second in the East, winning 54 games and reached the Eastern Conference Semifinals before falling to Indiana. However, a lot has changed in one season. Read More »

After the Knicks lost to the Mavericks on a Dirk Nowitzki buzzer-beater Monday night, Carmelo Anthony stands at the free throw line at Madison Square with his hands on his knees in disbelief. In that moment you can feel all of the air leave the arena. Anthony had put out his best effort, scoring 44 points and has been carrying this team the whole year. Hours later, around 2:00 a.m., there is a report that Raymond Felton has been arrested on gun charges. Read More »

Raymond Felton was arrested early Tuesday morning on three gun charges, two of which are felony counts, according to a New York Police Department spokesman. Mere hours after Dirk Nowitzki beat the Knicks with a shot at the buzzer, putting another damper on New York’s season from hell, Felton was charged with second- and third-degree criminal possession of a firearm (both felonies), and fourth-degree possession of a firearm (a misdemeanor), according to ESPNNY.com.

The NBA trade rumor-mill is at full capacity as we come up on the trade deadline at 3 p.m. ET tomorrow. One team that’s been at the center of the those rumors, is a Knicks team that’s scrambling to make the playoffs and appease star Carmelo Anthony before he opts-out of his contract at the end of the year. It seems the Knicks brain trust is actively shopping fan favorite Iman Shumpert, but only if teams are willing to take the under-performing Raymond Felton. Even former Knicks PG Jeremy Lin has been drawn into the mix. Read More »

We dare you not to yawn when you watch this. Raymond Felton, the perpetual Knicks whipping boy, chose an inopportune time to reflexively inhale air during Wednesday night’s overtime loss to the Kings. Felton has gotten a lot of (largely deserved) flack from fans over the last couple seasons for his Pillsbury Doughboy figure — usually following an offseason filled with carbohydrates. So you just knew the moment the camera captured Ray yawning, Knicks fans were going to be apoplectic. They didn’t disappoint. Read More »

Well that was fun while it lasted. The Charlotte Bobcats ended the Knicks 5-game winning streak with a 108-98 win on Tuesday night in Charlotte. While the Knicks stuck around for a while, they couldn’t handle Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker or overcome a poor opening from Carmelo Anthony — maybe he wasn’t ready for a game? But it was Amar’e Stoudemire that takes the cake with this pass to a front row patron that knocked over her drink with nary a Knick in sight. Read More »

Fantasy Basketball: Buy Low, Sell High (12.6)

Kyrie Irving

BUY LOW KYRIE IRVING, Cleveland Cavaliers You’re still going to have to give up a lot in exchange for a stud like Irving, but owners are fed up with his underachieving and are certainly more likely to deal him now than they were at the beginning of the year. The former Rookie of the Year is shooting a career-low 40 percent from the field and the rise in assists that was talked about all summer simply hasn’t happened. He’s also experiencing dips in free throw percentage, three-pointers and steals. Read More »

Which Team Is Worse: The Knicks Or Nets?

How did things get so bad so fast in New York? The Knicks have lost nine games in a row, and half their team is either hurt (Tyson Chandler), complaining (Carmelo Anthony) or involved in trade rumors (Iman Shumpert). Brooklyn is almost just as bad, a team with a handful of future Hall of Famers and only one goal (championship) sitting at 5-12. Read More »
