  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. ‘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…

  4. 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.…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.…

  9. ‘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…

  10. 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…

  11. J.R. Smith is in bed by 9 p.m. in his latest Foot Locker spot (VIDEO)

    Nov 25, 2013, 10:07 PM EDT

    J.R. Smith

    J.R. Smith, as you may have heard, has a bit of a reputation as a partier in NBA circles. He’s been seen out late on more than one occasion when his team has a game to play the very next day, which makes this parody of his lifestyle in the latest Foot Locker spot all…

  12. J.R. Smith doesn’t think it’s too early to hit Knicks’ panic button

    Nov 21, 2013, 6:49 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    It’s too early to hit the panic button with the Knicks. Yes, they are off to an ugly 3-8 start, but it’s too early to panic. First, they will get Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton back healthy. Second, the offense will come around once those two are back — last season the Knicks had the…

  13. Rumor: If Woodson is in trouble, look for push to make Calipari next Knicks coach

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Texas-Arlington v Kentucky

    “I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part!” —Otter, Animal House He may well have been talking about James Dolan and the New York Knicks. However, this is what happens with a 3-8 start in New York — speculation. No doubt that if the Knicks…

  14. Tuesday Night NBA Grades: We fail the entire Atlantic Division

    Nov 20, 2013, 2:03 AM EDT

    New York Knicks

    Our grades for what happened around the NBA Sunday, or what you missed while you were turning in your neighbor who stole monkeys and grew marijuana…  The entire Atlantic Division. With the losses Tuesday of the New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics, Atlantic Division teams have now lost 14 games in a row. As…

  15. Report: Knicks’ Woodson not on hot seat but management wants lineup changes

    Nov 18, 2013, 3:18 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    Mike Woodson is not to blame for everything going on with the New York Knicks — he’s a good NBA coach trying to do the best he can with an ill-fitting roster. Last season New York was able to knock down a lot of threes and get 54 wins thanks to Carmelo Anthony having a…

  16. Amar’e Stoudemire frustrated with minutes restriction

    Nov 17, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire dunks during their NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    The Knicks are a mess right now, and after dropping their fifth straight home game on Saturday to fall to just 3-6 on the season, the frustration is becoming public from nearly every corner of the locker room. Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith, and Mike Woodson have all expressed concern over the team’s apparent lack of…

  17. Carmelo Anthony: “We’re not playing worth a [expletive] right now”

    Nov 17, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    Saturday night the Atlanta Hawks became the fifth team already this season to come into Madison Square Garden and thump the Knicks, beating them 110-90. No team has more losses at home this season than New York, who is 3-6 overall to start the season. Once again, without Tyson Chandler the Knicks defense was softer…

  18. Report: Knicks could deal Shumpert because he’s only tradable asset

    Nov 15, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert

    The New York Knicks are 3-5 and things are so bad the dancers have stopped dancing (by the owners orders). This is not what Knicks management (or fans) expected, but with Tyson Chandler out a month (at least) it’s hard to see how things take a serious turn for the better in the short term.…

  19. J.R. Smith fined $25,000 by league for “hostile and inappropriate language” in tweet

    Nov 15, 2013, 5:11 PM EDT

    J.R. Smith

    Might call some of my Number street homies an put #Detroit on smash for a min!#DeadSerious—  JR Smith (@TheRealJRSmith) November 14, 2013 We told you that the Knicks’ J.R. Smith and the Pistons’s Brandon Jennings got into a little twitter beef when Jennings questioned whether J.R.’s brother Chris Smith deserved to be in the NBA? (He’s not the…

  20. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  21. League investigating twitter “threat” from J.R. Smith to Brandon Jennings

    Nov 15, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    J.R. Smith

    Brandon Jennings took to twitter to fire a shot at Chris Smith being on the Knicks roster (he’s not alone), a tweet he has since deleted. J.R. Smith came to his defense. And suddenly we had a twitter feud. But did Smith cross the line in this? One of his tweets said he would send…

  22. Lin, Harden, Rockets drive right past Knicks to rim, hold on for win

    Nov 14, 2013, 11:56 PM EDT

    James Harden

    Carmelo Anthony tried — 45 points on 30 shots, including one that could have tied the game at the end — and Andrea Bargnani continues to find his offensive groove with the Knicks, having his best game. But that was still not enough to make up for New York’s lack of interior defense with Tyson…

  23. Brandon Jennings starts Twitter beef with J.R. Smith

    Nov 14, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Star players get special treatment in the NBA. Everyone just accepts that. But when merely above-average players like J.R. Smith get significant special favors, the floodgates open. The inclusion of Chris Smith, J.R. Smith’s brother, on the Knicks’ roster is a running joke around the league. Unless you’re Brandon Jennings, whose stature is similar to…

  24. Report: Nuggets shoot down Iman Shumpert for Kenneth Faried trade

    Nov 13, 2013, 6:08 PM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    UPDATE 6:08 pm: The Kenneth Faried for Iman Shumpert talks are dead, at least according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, who tweeted this: Denver has made it clear to Kenneth Faried’s reps: There are no active talks involving him. Knicks offered Shumpert. Denver rejected idea. Of course, if you were trying to negotiate a…

  25. Knicks to start J.R. Smith, move Prigioni to bench

    Nov 13, 2013, 12:13 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v New York Knicks

    When Pablo Prigioni has been on the court this season, the Knicks have been 8.9 points per 100 possessions better. So he’s getting benched. Looking to put some spark in an offense that is 25th in the league so far this season (using points per possession), Knicks coach Mike Woodson said he is putting J.R.…
