    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    In theory there should be strong trade market for the reining sixth man of the year making close to the league average salary. But if that sixth man is J.R. Smith, good luck. As the Knicks front office tries to change the locker room culture and figure out how to get out of the mess…

    J.R. Smith

    J.R. Smith got caught Sunday untying Shawn Marion’s shoe Sunday during the Knicks win over Dallas — watch the video above, where during Dirk Nowitzki’s free throws Smith bends over, pretends to check his own shoes and unties Marion’s. He got a warning from the league but there was no fine for it. However our…

    Jan 8, 2014, 11:10 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Los Angeles Lakers

    J.R. Smith has some nerve. He got got caught untying Shawn Marion’s shoelaces, talked his way out of a fine and then pretended to pull the same stunt against Greg Monroe (though I can buy the possibility Smith was joking when he reached toward Monroe’s shoe and had no true intention of grabbing the lace).…

  6. The Extra Pass: Why D’Antoni is the right man for the job; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Jan 6, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni and Dwight Howard react on the sidelines as the Lakers trail the Los Angeles Clippers, and after Howard fouled out of the game, during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    You may consider this curious timing to take up for Mike D’Antoni, considering his Lakers just gave up 137 points at home to a Denver Nuggets team that can best be described as “meh.” Believe it or not, though, pulling the wool over your eyes isn’t my intention here. Let’s be truthful: D’Antoni’s teams really…

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    Classic. Watch the video above — not Dirk Nowitzki taking free throws, but on the left watch J.R. Smith bend down like he’s checking his shoes and untie Shawn Marion‘s shoe while the free throw is taking place. Marion goes down and plays the defensive possession out then you can see him as the team…

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    For the second time this season, a member of the New York Knicks launched a shot late in the game that showed no regard for how much time was remaining, the score, or the game’s overall situation. And the team’s head coach, Mike Woodson, wants to pin at least part of the blame for this…

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    The Knicks had an opportunity to win their second straight game against a team that has performed much better than New York has to this point, but another bone-headed mistake in a season that’s been full of them derailed that chance. Tied with the Rockets with under a minute remaining, New York inbounded the ball…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…
