It’s a real possibility, but only if Anthony believes a plan to win is in place.

It really comes down to this: Does he trust Phil Jackson and Knicks management to build a winner quickly?

Woodson continues to confound: Says Knicks’ season would have been different if Bargnani stayed healthy
Apr 11, 2014, 12:51 PM EDT
Mike Woodson’s obsession with the tall lineup continues, even to this day. For reasons nobody can really explain.
Apr 8, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT
Larry Brown thinks the Knicks did Mike Woodson wrong, that Steve Mills doesn’t have a clue and Phil Jackson should coach. And get off his lawn!

Phil Jackson wants you to know he is in charge in NYC, not CAA.

You can’t win titles in the NBA without elite talent. Superstars matter. It is the nature of the sport. However there is more to it than that, nobody ever just rolled the ball out and won a ring. Franchises have to put those stars in a system that benefits them but more importantly benefits the…

Ultimately Thomas Wolfe will be proven right, you can’t go home again. Not even Phil Jackson. It’s easy to sit back and list the reasons Jackson’s return to the team that drafted him, taking over basketball operations of the New York Knicks, will not work: James Dolan; Jackson has never had any front office experience before;…

If Andrea Bargnani is out the rest of the season, Knicks fans will be good with that.

Does he mean Carmelo Anthony, Andrea Bargnani or J.R. Smith?
Mar 9, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT
But are the Knicks that patient?
Mar 5, 2014, 1:42 PM EDT
Every player says it. Carmelo Anthony is saying it. It’s is some variant of “I’m not about the money, I’m about winning.” Then the money goes on the table and it’s all about the money. That’s the choice facing Carmelo Anthony this summer — a big payday from the Knicks and trust them to rebuild…

Everything is up in the air with the Knicks. Management’s focus right now is to bring back Carmelo Anthony and to do that they need to shake up the roster — try to dump their biggest contracts to clear out space for free agents, get younger and more athletic. Which means anyone and everyone could…

Giannis Antetokounmpo ranks: Just below Raymond Felton and just above Mo Williams in PER Just below Andrea Bargnani and just above E’Twaun Moore in win shares Just below Toney Douglas and just above Luc Mbah a Moute in win shares per 48 minutes So, why does everyone go gaga over the Greek Freak? 1.

We’re back with the latest PBT Podcast and today you set the topics — myself and Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio discuss your twitter questions. First up we discuss the Clippers moves at the buyout deadline — I think getting Glen Davis is huge, Danny Granger on the other hand is not better than Jared…

Carmelo Anthony has been making the rounds during All-Star weekend, and as you’d expect, the focus of the questions are primarily on his pending free agency decision. But to Anthony’s credit, he hasn’t shied away from it or been vague. Instead, he’s cleared the air on why he’s entering free agency, he’s stated what his…

NEW ORLEANS — Talk to Carmelo Anthony and it quickly becomes clear he loves being a Knick. He loves New York, he loves playing in Madison Square Garden, he loves Spike Lee, he loves everything about the experience. He also wants to win an NBA title. Are those two things compatible? Anthony is asking himself…

Amar’e Stoudemire began the season on a minutes limit after undergoing two knee surgeries last year. Through five games, he was averaging fewer than five minutes per game. Since, his playing time steadily ticked upward, peaking at nearly 20 minutes per game. Then, Stoudemire missed seven games with an ankle injury. In two games since…

A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

For a team that has had its success this season playing small ball, the Knicks have a lot of guys in their frontcourt. They start Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony but behind them are Kenyon Martin, Amar’e Stoudemire, Andrea Bargnani, Jeremy Tyler and Cole Aldrich. The challenge has been keeping all those banged-up bodies healthy…

Josh Smith is having the worst season of his career. Playing far too much small forward, a position he can handle only in select matchups, his defense has really fallen off. Though Smith defends power forwards well, his his lack of speed on the perimeter kills his ability to chase wings around screens. He’s also…

When Andrea Bargnani tore a ligament in his elbow it was a blessing in disguise for the Knicks (and not that good a disguise, we and everyone else on the planet called it) — Mike Woodson could no longer try to force feed a big lineup that wasn’t working, he had to go small with…
Josh Smith on pace for worst 3-point-shooting season in NBA history, but only because he’s playing smarter
Jan 24, 2014, 3:57 PM EDT
Josh Smith is on pace for the worst 3-point-shooting season in NBA history. That was the case recently made by Sean Corp of Detroit Bad Boys and backed by Kyle Wagner of Deadspin. There are varying potential cutoffs, but here’s how it stacks up: In NBA history, players have attempted at least 200 3-pointers in…

We mocked Andrea Bargnani‘s ability to finish this dunk earlier in the day, but now this is not so funny for an already banged up Knicks team. An MRI to A.Bargnani’s l. elbow revealed a torn ligament.The injury occurred last night vs 76ers at 2:40 in 3rd qtr. He is out indefinitely.— (@NY_KnicksPR) January…
