    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Perfect storm continues for Jeremy Lin, Knicks cruise to win

    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…

  10. Wednesday And-1 links: Jeremy Lin notes… and other stuff

    Feb 15, 2012, 11:11 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin; Anthony Carter

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Great stuff on why Jeremy Lin and Carmelo Anthony will work out from Bethlehem Shoals at GQ. Mike D’Antoni talks Linsanity, and blending Carmelo Anthony…

  11. 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…

  12. J.R. Smith returns to USA Wednesday, who gets him?

    Feb 14, 2012, 12:40 PM EDT

    CBA 11/12 First Round: Guangdong Hongyuan v Zhejiang Chouzhou

    In the next 24 hours, J.R. Smith will be on the long flight from China — where he signed to play during the lockout — back to the United States. He tweeted this the other day. Ladies and Gentleman I am happy to tell you my return to the United States is offical! I will…

  13. Video: Talking “Linsanity” with Amar’e, ‘Melo and Lin

    Feb 14, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Lin is congratulated by teammates Jordan and Fields after win against Timberwolves in Minneapolis

    Tonight Linsanity — AKA the New York Knicks — goes north of the border to Toronto. Amar’e Stoudemire will be back in the starting lineup and he talks about liking what he sees. Of course he does, he’s got a PG who can run the pick-and-roll again. We told you already Carmelo Anthony is happy…

  14. Carmelo says playing with Lin will be “dream come true”

    Feb 13, 2012, 7:08 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    Reportedly, it was Carmelo Anthony — in street clothes due to a pulled groin — going to Mike D’Antoni at halftime of the Knicks game against New Jersey and suggesting to play Jeremy Lin more that kicked off “Linsanity.” Monday, the guy who came to New York to see himself on the back pages of…

  15. “Linsanity” came when Lin stopped trying to play for others

    Feb 13, 2012, 5:23 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin shakes hands with MInnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love before game

    Just go out and play. Let God and the universe take care of the rest of it. That is the battle Jeremy Lin says he fights daily now — not trying to live up to the expectations of others, not trying to control everything, but just going out and playing basketball. Lin — a devoutly…

  16. Stoudemire, ‘Melo return and things change for Jeremy Lin

    Feb 13, 2012, 12:49 PM EDT

    Knicks guard Lin smiles during player introductions before the start of the Knicks' NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Minneapolis

    It is the sentence I never expected to type and nobody ever expected to read: Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony are about to be back in the Knicks lineup, but how do they blend them in? It should be a no brainer fitting the Knicks two best players back in with their new point guard…

  17. Why the bottleneck on NBA trades? Calendar and Howard.

    Feb 13, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    We’re a couple months into the NBA season, and there have been very few trades. Before the season we had some biggies — Chris Paul to the Lakers, er, Clippers — but once the season started, that has dried up. And you can expect things to stay pretty much dry past the All-Star game at…

  18. Jeremy Lin comes back to earth, but inspires Knicks win

    Feb 12, 2012, 1:11 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio, Jeremy Lin

    The Knicks would not have won this game two weeks ago. And that is the true measure Linsanity — it is not just the points and assists that Jeremy Lin brings anymore, it’s about the energy and fight he has brought out of this roster. Two weeks ago the Knicks would have rolled over and…

  19. Spike Lee texts Mark Jackson “thanks” for cutting Jeremy Lin

    Feb 11, 2012, 7:58 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Linsanity cannot be stopped in New York… well, until Carmelo Anthony comes back and takes the ball out of Jeremy Lin’s hands. But we’re not going to worry about that yet. The legend of Lin grew Friday night when he dropped 38 on the Lakers and led the Knicks to their fourth straight win while…

  20. Kobe Bryant not down with “Linsanity.” Not yet anyway.

    Feb 10, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If you are going to impress Kobe Bryant, you’re going to have to do a lot more than have three good games in February. A lot more. Jeremy Lin is a sensation, “Linsanity” is sweeping New York as Kobe Bryant and the Lakers come to town Friday night. Two weeks ago the Knicks looked lost,…

  21. Your NBA All-Star reserves announced, coaches went safe

    Feb 9, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The fans picked the five starters, but this week the coaches voted to name the reserves to the All-Star Game in Orlando. And the coaches played it safe. They went with the old names they new not the future stars. They went with veteran Joe Johnson and left out Rajon Rondo. They left out Paul…

  22. Enjoying the Jeremy Lin ride, which may get bumpy

    Feb 9, 2012, 1:58 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    We need to be honest — the three defenses that Jeremy Lin has carved up as the starting point guard for the Knicks are three terrible defenses. All three are in the bottom 10 in the league in defensive efficiency, and the best one (Utah) has slow bigs who are awful against quick guards —…

  23. Wilson Chandler says he will re-sign with Denver after China

    Feb 9, 2012, 9:55 AM EDT

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

    Kenyon Martin is back from China and was in a Clippers uniform last night. But there are still three quality names set to return to the NBA when their teams’ seasons end in China — Wilson Chandler, J.R. Smith and Aaron Brooks. There are a lot of teams around the NBA who need some help…

  24. Amar’e Stoudemire out until next Monday

    Feb 8, 2012, 11:57 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Charlotte Bobcats

    The Knicks will be shorthanded — or, if you prefer, the Jeremy Lin show will continue — through the weekend. Amare Stoudemire will remain in Florida through the weekend and will rejoin the Knicks for practice next Monday, tweets Mark Berman of the New York Post. That would have him missing three games — the…

  25. D’Antoni tells Knicks fans to get a life, stop booing Jeffries

    Feb 7, 2012, 8:21 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    Knicks fans have it in for Jarred Jeffries, a guy they see as stealing the midlevel exception for the past few years. He is emblematic of the bad years the Knicks are trying to move past in some fans mind, a guy overpaid for little production. Jeffries came back on a new deal but the…
