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

    Dec 23, 2013, 9:17 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 17, 2013, 6:01 PM EST

    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…

  4. Pablo Prigioni fractures toe, out two weeks

    Dec 17, 2013, 10:15 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 16, 2013, 11:26 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 16, 2013, 12:23 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 15, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 12, 2013, 9:04 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 5, 2013, 1:33 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 4, 2013, 10:08 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    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.…

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

    Dec 2, 2013, 7:37 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 2, 2013, 10:02 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 1, 2013, 7:50 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 1, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    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.…

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

    Nov 30, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    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…

  17. Knicks hold team meeting after suffering seventh straight loss

    Nov 28, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 25, 2013, 10:07 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 21, 2013, 6:49 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:06 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 20, 2013, 2:03 AM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 18, 2013, 3:18 PM EST

    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…

  23. Amar’e Stoudemire frustrated with minutes restriction

    Nov 17, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 17, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 15, 2013, 7:55 PM EST

    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.…
