  1. The Extra Pass: Seven young players to watch in 2014

    Jan 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One of the best parts of the NBA is watching the young talent emerge, some guys you expected to be good but others that came out of left field. Along those lines, here are seven players to watch as they start to break out and find their way in their first couple NBA seasons. Anthony…

  2. The Extra Pass: The best dunks of 2013; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Derrick Williams

    If the end of a year serves as a time for reflection and the remembrance of lessons learned, then let the video below serve as one last reminder for the small guards of the league. If LeBron James is coming at you on a break, move. If DeAndre Jordan is flying down the lane towards…

  3. Knicks waive Chris Smith to make way for Jeremy Tyler, J.R. Smith ticked

    "A Year In A New York Minute" Photo Exhibition

    This was expected. It was also the smart basketball move. The Knicks have waived little-used guard who is currently in the D-League Chris Smith — the brother of J.R. Smith — to make way for bringing back Jeremy Tyler. The Knicks need the help along the front line and Chris Smith is frankly of little…

  4. Quote of the day: Kevin Durant thought Madison Square Garden was awfully quiet

    Dec 26, 2013, 12:35 PM EDT

    Celebrities Attend The Oklahoma City Thunder Vs New York Knicks Game

    “It felt like no one was in here.” —Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder, describing the crowd at Madison Square Garden on Christmas Day to Chris Herring of the Wall Street Journal. I can’t blame Knicks’ fans for this — what has this team given them to cheer this season? Another poorly chosen J.R.…

  5. The Extra Pass: LeBron and Kobe miss each other once again, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES – The reason behind the NBA scheduling a Christmas Day marquee matchup between the Heat and the Lakers had nothing to do with the current fate of the respective franchises, and everything to do with potentially getting to see two of the game’s biggest stars competing in a rare head-to-head matchup. A Finals…

  6. Thunder put on show under bright lights, rout Knicks at Madison Square Garden

    Dec 25, 2013, 5:56 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    This was as bad as Knicks fans have feared. Before the tip the Knicks learned that leading scorer and guy they can’t do without Carmelo Anthony was in fact going to be out due to the sprained ankle suffered Monday. Then once the ball went up for that tip the Oklahoma City Thunder looked every…

  7. Carmelo Anthony out with sprained ankle, will not play Christmas Day vs. Thunder

    Dec 25, 2013, 1:52 PM EDT

    NBA: Knicks v Magic

    The best laid plans of mice and David Stern… have been blown up by injuries. In another blow to the NBA’s Christmas Day showcase lineup, Carmelo Anthony will not play due to a sprained ankle suffered Monday night. Anthony wanted to go, came to the arena and met with the team’s medical staff, but the…

  8. The Extra Pass: The nightmare that is LeBron James; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    You know those nightmares where you can’t run away fast enough? The ones where your legs turn to mush and the baddy behind you keeps gaining ground? That’s a recurring nightmare for lots of people, but it’s a recurring reality for Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer. Budenholzer was on the sidelines with the San…

  9. Carmelo Anthony rolls ankle, leaves game not to return

    Dec 23, 2013, 9:17 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Because the Knicks don’t have enough problems… In the third quarter in Orlando Monday night, Carmelo Anthony twisted his left ankle. The training staff looked it it, he tried to walk it off during a timeout, only to limp to the locker room under his own power. Anthony will not return to the court Monday…

  10. The Extra Pass: Golden State’s Elevator Screen plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s Golden State’s Elevator screen play: The “Elevator” screen is one of the most aesthetically pleasing plays you’ll see in the league, particularly when it’s run by Golden State. That’s in large part because any possession that ends in a…

  11. Why is Mike Woodson hanging on as Knicks’ coach? There are a couple reasons.

    Dec 17, 2013, 6:01 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    You need to go back seven seasons to find one where at least one NBA coach wasn’t canned before Christmas. Right now we are eight days away from Santa’s visit and it looks like he once again may not bring any pink slips in his bag. If that changes, it’s because of the Knicks. While…

  12. Pablo Prigioni fractures toe, out two weeks

    Dec 17, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Pablo Prigioni

    The Knicks recently elevated Pablo Prigioni’s role, and they were better for it. In the three games prior to Monday’s contest against Washington, Prigioni played 31, 39 and 31 minutes – his first 30-minute games since a season-opening win over the Bucks. And he produced: 16 assists, one turnover and eight steals in the three…

  13. Knicks fail to execute on final two possessions, drop a tough one to Wizards

    Dec 16, 2013, 11:26 PM EDT

    woodson

    NEW YORK – It seemed as though the Knicks were in perfect position to finish off what would have been an uplifting win over the Wizards. They overcame a 15-point third quarter deficit, saw J.R. Smith get hot from three-point distance, and got more than solid minutes from Tim Hardaway Jr. off the bench. But a…

  14. J.R. Smith not eligible to be traded until Jan. 15

    Dec 16, 2013, 12:23 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Five

    The NBA’s trading season unofficially opened on Sunday, because Dec. 15 marked the first day that the majority of players who signed new contracts over the summer are eligible to be included in trades to other teams. But a select few players aren’t yet eligible. The collective bargaining agreement has various restrictions in place for…

  15. Report: Mike Woodson told J.R. Smith to take better shots, so he took just one Friday

    Dec 15, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    The soap opera that is the Knicks 2013-14 season continues. J.R. Smith missed training camp with a knee injury then the start of the season following a league suspension (for testing positive for marijuana use for a third time). After all that, he has never been able to find a groove this season — he…

  16. J.R. Smith with spin move then behind-the-head pass (VIDEO)

    Dec 12, 2013, 9:04 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    Knicks fans could use a positive, and while their team gave up a 23-point lead to a team missing pretty much every player you can name, the bottom line is the Knicks made some plays and got a win. They even had a couple highlights, like this one from J.R. Smith who looked like his…

  17. Knicks and Nets might not remain so mockable for long, so enjoy it while you can

    Dec 5, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks and Nets as engaged in a thrilling competition: Which team is the biggest laughingstocks in the NBA? Both can lay claim. They have oversized payrolls, cartoonish owners, coaches on the hot seat and underwhelming stars. The Knicks have seen Metta World Peace and Kenyon Martin feud, and the Nets have matched with Jason…

  18. ‘Melo says Knicks players “worried” Woodson could lose job if losing continues

    Dec 4, 2013, 10:08 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    We told you yesterday Mike Woodson’s seat is getting hot in New York — The Knicks are 3-13 and have lost nine in a row, owner James Dolan has a Nets obsession, the Knicks play the Nets on Thursday and if the Knicks streak reaches 10… let’s just say Dolan is unpredictable. The fact Woodson…

  19. The Extra Pass: Our awards at the quarter pole, plus Monday recaps

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Believe it or not, we’re nearly at the quarter mark of the NBA season already. That means it’s time to start believing a little more in what we’ve seen so far, and maybe even time to dish out a few awards. Remember, these aren’t predictions for what will happen at the end of the season.…

  20. Report: Kenyon Martin, Metta World Peace had “heated” argument

    Dec 2, 2013, 7:37 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Atlanta Hawks

    Losing causes friction in the locker room. Nine losses is a row is almost enough friction to start a fire. For the second time in a day some of that friction around the New York Knicks bubbled to the surface — Metta World Peace and Kenyon Martin got in a heated argument Sunday during a…

  21. Carmelo Anthony: “I think we’re playing to lose”

    Dec 2, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    I’m not sure what more can be said about the Knicks play right now after nine straight losses. Carmelo Anthony was searching for a way to describe New York’s play and was rightfully harsh in his assessment after a loss Sunday at home to a New Orleans team that had to play most of the…

  22. Lakers coach D’Antoni believes Nick Young could win Sixth Man of the Year

    Dec 1, 2013, 7:50 PM EDT

    nick young

    Nick Young has historically had an offensive-minded, streaky game as a shooter that made him a logical choice to play in Mike D’Antoni’s system, especially on a contract near the veteran’s minimum salary for two years at most. But his play with the Lakers has been surprisingly consistent to this point in the season, and…

  23. J.R. Smith says surgically-repaired knee is bothering him

    Dec 1, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    J.R. Smith

    There’s a lot wrong with the Knicks this season. But on the offensive end of the floor, the drop-off in production from J.R. Smith has to be near the top of the list. Smith was the league’s Sixth Man of the Year a season ago, and averaged 18.1 points per game on 42.2 percent shooting.…

  24. ‘Melo says Knicks miss leadership of Kidd, rest of old roster

    Nov 30, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Last season the Knicks age — the oldest team in NBA history on average roster age — was an easy punch line. It wasn’t really fair as they were not as old once you compensated for the age of the rotations they played, plus the old guys won 54 games and won the first Nets…

  25. Knicks hold team meeting after suffering seventh straight loss

    Nov 28, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks lost to the Clippers on Wednesday for the team’s seventh straight defeat, one that sent them to a dismal record of 3-11 on the season. That wasn’t exactly the plan coming off of a year where New York finished with the second best record in the East, and expectations heading into the season…
