  1. As expected, Dwight Howard dances around trade questions

    Feb 24, 2012, 2:18 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    “The situation we are in right now is All-Star Weekend. That’s the only thing that matters right now. This is for the fans and we’re going to enjoy ourselves.” “All that stuff can go on after the All-Star break.” That is pretty much what you knew Dwight Howard was going to say when asked about…

  2. Heat shut down Jeremy Lin, cruise to victory over Knicks

    Feb 23, 2012, 10:40 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Jeremy Lin

    By now you’ve certainly heard all about Jeremy Lin, and the way he’s led the Knicks to an improbable stretch of nine wins in the team’s last 11 games. The Miami Heat, too, were obviously paying attention, and made sure that Lin wouldn’t be a factor when the teams met on Thursday. Miami’s defense forced…

  3. Oscar Robertson tells Dwight Howard to “keep mouth shut”

    Feb 23, 2012, 2:59 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    What LeBron James did, what Carmelo Anthony did, what Dwight Howard is doing — that does not sit well with an older generation of players. Say, for example Oscar Robertson. Mr. I averaged a triple-double for an entire season. One of the game’s 50 greatest players (easily). Robertson — one of the trail blazers of…

  4. Heat have a plan for Jeremy Lin… and it’s not who you think

    Feb 23, 2012, 11:31 AM EDT

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Jeremy Lin vs. Joel Anthony. That is the matchup that will determine the highly anticipated showdown between the Miami Heat and New York Knicks Thursday night in South Beach. Not LeBron James or Dwyane Wade — although they will both get their say — but rather Joel Anthony. Let me explain. (Tom Haberstroh at ESPN…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lin, ‘Melo play together well

    Feb 23, 2012, 5:58 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    What you missed while stacking 2.5 feet of pancakes… Warriors 106, Suns 104: We have other details, but you really should just click this link to see Monta Ellis’ game winning shot. Knicks 99, Hawks 82: It was just a second game with everyone healthy on the Knicks, but you could see an improved chemistry.…

  6. LeBron says he expects to cover Jeremy Lin some Thursday

    Feb 22, 2012, 3:08 PM EDT

    Miami Heats LeBron James looks on during their NBA basketball game against his former team the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    Jeremy Lin has stood up pretty tall to every test he’s faced the past few weeks — the Knicks haven’t won every game, but he’s not wilted in the spotlight. However, the Miami Heat’s defensive energy and athleticism on the perimeter is a whole different ballgame. And Lin is going to get all of it…

  7. Video: Mannix, Wojnarowski discuss ‘Melo, Lin fit

    Feb 22, 2012, 9:14 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated and Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo were on NBC’s SportsTalk yesterday and of course Jeremy Lin, Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks came up. Their consensus — there’s a lot of potential there. Which sounds familiar. Oh, and by the way Deron Williams is really good.

  8. Marvin Williams “vehemently denies” making trade request

    Feb 21, 2012, 7:25 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Earlier today, we told you about an ESPN.com report from Chris Broussard which cited sources saying that Marvin Williams “wants out” of Atlanta, in hopes of playing for a team where he’ll have a bigger role offensively. Williams himself has now denied that report directly, according to Hawks PR man Arthur Triche on Twitter. The…

  9. Lin, ‘Melo together showed a lot of potential in first game

    Feb 21, 2012, 2:56 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Jeremy Lin, Mike D'Antoni

    Let’s be clear — there was a lot of uncertainty and plenty of rust in the Knicks first game with Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin in the lineup together. It was far from pretty. Stoudemire spent most of the game as the weakside option, something he will do more of but he needs…

  10. By the way, Deron Williams really enjoyed win over Knicks

    Feb 21, 2012, 1:42 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Linsanity started a couple weeks ago when Jeremy Lin came off the bench and out of nowhere to drop 25 on the New Jersey Nets. Deron Williams read in the papers how he got “destroyed” by Lin. He got weeks of questions about Lin and how good he was. Williams quietly fumed. Then Monday night…

  11. Jeremy Lin who? Deron Williams dominates Knicks in Net wins

    Feb 21, 2012, 1:33 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, Jeremy Lin

    “Linsanity” started when Jeremy Lin came in off the bench against the New Jersey Nets, dropped 25 points on Deron Williams and his team, and started to change the Knicks season around. Williams was frustrated. A couple days later, Williams was being peppered with questions about Lin, at one point said “What phenomenon?” then cut…

  12. Carmelo Anthony returns to Knicks lineup Monday vs. Nets

    Feb 20, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    Knicks forward Anthony reacts to the Bulls missing a free throw attempt in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    If you’re going to ease Carmelo Anthony back into the new-look Knicks, this is the best way to do it — against the worst defense in the league. Carmelo Anthony will be back with the Knicks in the starting lineup Monday against the Nets, the team announced. He will start (Iman Shumpert will come off…

  13. NBA Power Rankings: Streaking Heat, Spurs land on top

    Feb 20, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Miami has looked dominant the last week, while Tony Parker may be the best player in basketball the last two weeks so the Spurs climb. At the bottom, things look familiar. 1. Heat (24-7, last week ranked 1). They became the third team in the NBA to sweep a back-to-back-to-back (Bulls, Thunder), but they did…

  14. Report: Wilson Chandler to meet with Nuggets Monday

    Feb 20, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Wilson+Chandler+Atlanta+Hawks+v+Denver+Nuggets+Ym_wkv-B6Cgl

    His Chinese team may be in the playoffs but as we told you might be happening, Wilson Chandler has left that team and is back in the United States. Denver, to be specific, which brings us to this tweet from Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post. Just got word that Wilson Chandler will be in…

  15. Kenyon Martin talks about George Karl talking too much

    Feb 19, 2012, 8:59 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Three

    For seven years, Kenyon Martin was a Nugget. For six of those, George Karl was his coach — and those were some pretty good Nuggets teams. But you don’t have to like someone to work with them. Martin and Karl are not on each other’s Christmas card list. Karl has remarked multiple times about how…

  16. Melo out vs. Mavericks, Smith and Davis are active

    Feb 19, 2012, 11:46 AM EDT

    Knicks forward Anthony reacts to the Bulls missing a free throw attempt in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    We’ll have to wait for another day to see the Knicks at full strength. The Knicks announced Sunday morning that Carmelo Anthony is out vs. the Mavericks as he continues to recover from injury. But there is some good news, from the Knicks’ official Twitter:   D’Antoni says @carmeloanthony is out, might play tomorrow. Shump…

  17. Linsanity runs into Hornets nest, Knicks winning streak ends

    Feb 17, 2012, 11:53 PM EDT

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin drives to the basket against the New Orleans Hornets in the second half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    There are people saying that Carmelo Anthony and Jeremy Lin can’t coexist. But in the final minutes of the first loss in the Linsanity era Friday night, the Knicks really needed Carmelo Anthony. They needed a second player who can create his own shot (or a shot for others). They needed a second player who…

  18. Linsanity should take Knicks above .500 tonight, but how much farther?

    Feb 17, 2012, 12:22 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Jeremy Lin, Mike D'Antoni

    Right now the Knicks are a .500 team, 15-15. Right now they are the eighth seed in the East. Chances are that after Friday night Jeremy Lin — who will get credit regardless of how he plays — and the Knicks will be above .500 as they should knock off the Hornets (and move into…

  19. J.R. Smith: “New York Knicks it is”

    Feb 17, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    It’s not a surprise — we told you yesterday it was coming — but now it is official. Well, it is if you can believe J.R. Smith himself. We tend to. Smith tweeted this Friday morning:  New York Knicks it is Smith will join the Jeremy Lin show, along with Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire.…

  20. Jeremy Lin is confused why you don’t think he can play with ‘Melo

    Feb 17, 2012, 8:43 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v New York Knicks

    Carmelo Anthony is about to come back to the Knicks lineup and suddenly the question has somehow become “how can the four-time All-Star and Olympic gold medalist fit his game in with Jeremy Lin?” It’s a fair question in that things are going to have to change from how it was when Anthony was forced…

  21. J.R. Smith confirms he is close to deal with Knicks

    Feb 16, 2012, 7:03 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Three

    UPDATE 7:03 pm: Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld spoke with J.R. Smith himself and tweeted this: I just spoke to J.R. Smith. He confirmed that he’s nearing a deal with the New York Knicks. This echoes what we have been hearing all day, that it is just a matter of hammering out the contract details and…

    Feb 15, 2012, 11:02 PM EDT

    Knicks' Lin walks up-court during game against Kings in New York's Madison Square Garden

    Linsanity is now 7-0. For the sensation that is Jeremy Lin to be unleashed — from the wins to the mania that gripped New York and spilled over into popular culture — it takes more than just the fantastic play of Lin. Although that is certainly the catalyst. But it takes a perfect storm of…

  24. This 15 minutes in Jeremy Lin: Yes, the Knicks will be able to keep Jeremy Lin.

    Feb 14, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    From the excellent Ken Berger of CBS: On the phone with a basketball executive Tuesday to go over the mechanics of how the Knicks could keep Jeremy Lin beyond this season, the notion of how surreal the conversation was came up more than once. But in answer to your question, Knicks fans: Yes, if Lin continues to perform at…
