    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    As we reported was coming, the Knicks Tyson Chandler is your defensive player of the year. The league made it official Wednesday afternoon.

  3. Knicks better without Stoudemire? No, but different.

    May 2, 2012, 12:35 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Amare Stoudemire is out, having lost his fight with a fire extinguisher in Miami. Which has a number of Knicks faithful saying it is a blessing in disguise — Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony were not working well together. The Knicks played some of their best ball this season with a small-ball lineup where Anthony was…

    May 2, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    Demarcus Cousins

    Following a rash of injuries — and whatever happened to Lamar Odom — the original pool of 20 players USA Basketball was going to choose from to form its Olympic team this summer is down to 15. The waters are getting a little shallow with injuries to Derrick Rose, Chauncey Billups, LaMarcus Aldridge and Dwight…

    May 1, 2012, 10:54 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    Tyson Chandler was considered one of the front runners for Defensive Player of the Year (he would have had my vote), so this tweet from Marc Spears of Yahoo comes as no surprise. Knicks center Tyson Chandler to be named NBA Defensive Player of the Year tomorrow at team practice facility, source tells YahooSports. No reason…

    Knicks forward Stoudemire leaves the American Airlines Arena with his hand in a sling after his team's loss to the Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff in Miami

    The good news out of Amare Stoudemire’s meeting with a hand specialist in New York was there was no ligament or nerve damage. It went much better than his meeting with a glass-encased fire extinguisher the night before. But he did have minor surgery on his left hand, reports David Aldridge at NBA.com. According to…

    Knicks forward Stoudemire leaves the American Airlines Arena with his hand in a sling after his team's loss to the Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff in Miami

    Let that be a lesson to our young readers — do not punch metal and glass objects. Actually, you probably didn’t need that reminder. Amare Stoudemire did. He slammed his fist into a metal and glass fire extinguisher case out of frustration as he walked down the hall to the locker room after the Knicks…

    Apr 30, 2012, 11:56 PM EDT

    Miami Heat forward James reacts after his second quarter dunk against the New York Knicks during Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff in Miami

    Carmelo Anthony played better, dropping 30 in Game 2. Tyson Chandler was back to being himself after having the flu and was far more aggressive at both ends. He had a real impact on the game. It didn’t matter. The Miami Heat led most of the game, took charge when LeBron James went on a…

  11. Teams bounce back from playoff blowouts, but can Knicks?

    Apr 30, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    NBA playoff history is filled with teams who got blown out one game who bounced back the next game and won. Games and series can take dramatic swings. But after watching Game 1, when the Heat rolled the Knicks behind a big game from LeBron James, you have to wonder if the Knicks can do…

  12. USA Basketball may look at new players after Rose injury

    Apr 30, 2012, 8:13 AM EDT

    Rose injury

    Back in January USA Basketball released a list of 20 players, a pool from which the United States basketball team for the London Olympics would be chosen. But due to injuries, that list is down to 15. Derrick Rose’s ACL injury puts him on the shelf, along with Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Chauncey Billups.…

  13. Heat 100 Knicks 67: Heat drown Knicks in their own tears

    Apr 28, 2012, 9:22 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    That got ugly fast, and then Iman Shumpert went down. So it was essentially the worst day for the Knicks. It could have been worse, but it would have taken some dark magic. The Heat destroyed the Knicks 100-67, outscoring them 57-29 in the second and third quarters. It was total annihilation. After Tyson Chandler…

  14. Knicks finally figured out who they are… but is that enough?

    Apr 27, 2012, 11:13 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony and Lin celebrate beating Orlando Magic in their NBA basketball game in New York

    The Knicks tried on more identities than a 14-year-old Upper West Side girl this season. They started the season as a seven seconds or less running team, but that didn’t really work without a point guard. Then they were the Linsanity team where that system did work with a bunch of shooters and Jeremy Lin…

    SEASON RECORDS
 Miami 46-20 (2 seed) New York: 36-30 (7 seed) SEASON SERIES

    Apr 26, 2012, 10:25 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose celebrates after teammate Luol Deng was fouled while shooting by Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The last time a lot of people wanted to wear a Bulls jersey was… oh, yea, back when the Bobcats owner played for them. Derrick Rose has a long way to go before he is mentioned in the same breath with Michael Jordan, but he is filling in that gap in some ways. For example,…

  18. Rumor: Knicks may make $50 million offer to Phil Jackson

    Apr 25, 2012, 3:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire may want Mike Woodson back — especially ‘Melo — but that likely is not what Knicks ownership is thinking in terms of who coaches the Knicks next year. Check out this rumor from the Journal Times in Racine. If the New York Knicks don’t advance beyond the first round of…

  19. ‘Melo, Stoudemire want Woodson back as Knicks coach

    Apr 25, 2012, 11:54 AM EDT

    Mike Woodson

    Part of this is that players never say anything bad about a coach days away from handing out playoff minutes (well, unless you are Dwight Howard), but there is also a real groundswell behind Knicks Mike Woodson right now — the team is 16-6 under him as interim coach. After the season ends (meaning after…

  20. Knicks take interim tag off Glen Grunwald as general manager

    Apr 24, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

    Glen Grunwald has been doing the job since last June anyway, so the Knicks have decided to make it official. Gone is the interim tag Grunwald had in front of general manager, reports Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated (via Sulia). First in NY, where the Knicks removed the ‘interim’ status of Glen Grunwald and announced…

  21. Andrew Bynum skipping Olympics… so who is in for USA?

    Apr 23, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    When Dwight Howard went under the knife and sacrificed his summer, the speculation began — who gets his spot on Team USA for the London Olympics this summer? It pretty much guaranteed that Knicks big man Tyson Chandler is in now. He was on the bubble before, but now he is a must as the…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Knicks, Heat win, can start thinking showdown

    Apr 23, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    Tristan Thompson, Amare Stoudemire

    What you missed while figuring out why ice cream causes brain freeze… Lakers 114, Thunder 106 (2OT): There was a game, too, not just an elbow. The Lakers got a win that can give them some confidence for a potential playoff meeting between these teams — but can they replicate this recipe for success? Our…

  23. Video: “Melo (Is It Three You’re Looking For?)” parody

    Apr 20, 2012, 7:44 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    What makes good satire, and good parody, is when it hits just close enough to home. Which is what makes this Lionel-Richie-come-Knicks love song so brilliant. Now, if we could have had a blind Knick trying to make Carmelo Anthony‘s face out of clay it would have been perfect, but still as it is it…

  24. Amare Stoudemire confirms he will play Friday for Knicks

    Apr 20, 2012, 8:09 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    Now the real work of getting the Knicks ready for the playoffs begins. With the Bucks loss to the Pacers Thursday night the Knicks secured a spot in the playoffs — but if they are going to make any noise there they are going to have to get both Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire firing…

  25. Carmelo Anthony has a giant painting of himself hanging over his fireplace, because of course he does

    From the always-hilarious Dan Devine of Yahoo! Sports’ Ball Don’t Lie Blog: Carmelo Anthony‘s wife, La La Anthony (née Vazquez), recently spoke with the New York Post about her reality TV show, her role in the upcoming film “Think Like a Man,” and the couple’s place in the Hell’s Kitchen section of Manhattan. The only piece of…
