  1. Knicks put up Amar’e billboard right across from Nets Brooklyn construction

    Remember back in June, when the brash new Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov put up a billboard of himself and Nets part owner Jay-Z overlooking Madison Square Garden. Underneath is said “Blueprint for Greatness.” The Nets real blueprints are being used for their new building under construction in Brooklyn, at the Atlantic Yards. Which is right…

  2. Mock the Knicks for losing if you want, but not about their payroll

    The Knicks will probably win more than the 23 games they did two seasons ago in the last of the Isiah Thomas years. We’re predicting 38 wins this season, although we are admittedly an optimistic lot (just to balance out native New Yorkers). Whatever happens, the Knicks likely will lose more games than they win.…

  3. Knicks Donnie Walsh says he wants Chris Mullin to replace him

    Oct 1, 2010, 1:22 PM EDT

    Donnie Walsh has spent three years now pulling the Knicks franchise out of the hole it had dug itself. The hole that collapsed and trapped them. Even the notoriously impatient New York media got it and Walsh got a largely free pass because he was doing ugly work that had to be done. Now they…

  4. Battle Royale: The three worst owners in the NBA

    Sep 18, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Battle Royale takes a topic and seeks to settle the pecking order of a given subject. Today’s topic? Who’s the worst owner in the NBA? You’re only as good as your owner. After all, you can have great chefs but if your owner doesn’t know how to keep the lights on you’re going to get…

  5. Amar'e Stoudemire: I never even spoke with Isiah Thomas

    Aug 20, 2010, 10:26 AM EDT

    At the press conference announcing the New York Knicks had fulfilled all their summer basketball aspirations by signing Amar’e Stoudemire (what, you thought they had other goals?) everyone kissed Isiah Thomas’ ring. On the orders of owner James Dolan, team president Donnie Walsh and others thanked Thomas for his role in bringing Amar’e to New…

  6. Sorry Knicks fans, but the Isiah Thomas saga may have another chapter

    Aug 15, 2010, 1:32 PM EDT

    It’s the questions most often asked around the New York Knicks saga: Why in the world would the Knicks even consider bringing Isiah Thomas back? Are they dropping acid like it’s 1968 in the Knicks offices? Bringing him back makes no sense if you’re thinking like a basketball executive. It makes no sense if you’re…

  7. Isiah Thomas will not take Knicks job. We all shed a single tear.

    Aug 11, 2010, 7:19 PM EDT

    Knicks fans can put away pitchforks and torches, no reason to storm the castle anymore. Isiah Thomas will not be part of the New York Knicks front office, walking away from the role offered as a consultant while maintaining his job as head coach of Florida International University. NBA Commissioner David Stern made the official…

  8. Knicks deadline to keep Donnie Walsh: April Fools' Day (Knicks jokes write themselves)

    Aug 9, 2010, 10:02 PM EDT

    By April Fools’ Day next year, Knicks owner James Dolan needs to decide if he wants to keep Donnie Walsh or jettison him and go with someone else. Like some sort of consultant who has experience as a general manager. If he can find anyone like that around the organization. Sadly, none of this is…

  9. Isiah Thomas speaks, and it's all good

    Aug 9, 2010, 3:07 PM EDT

    Go ahead and scoff. Laugh if you must. Isiah Thomas doesn’t care. He spoke to Dan LeBatard on 790 the Ticket in Miami and sounded like a guy who had learned from decades of being interviewed how to say the right things. How he and everyone in the Knicks front office are all chums, for…

  10. Report: Donnie Walsh nearly walked out after Thomas hiring

    Aug 8, 2010, 8:36 AM EDT

    Isiah Thomas is a polarizing figure in sports management. Some people think he’s the worst manager in the history of the NBA, while others think he’s the worst manager in the history of all sports, ever, in the history of the universe. And from a report this morning, Donnie Walsh is similarly wrapped up in…

  11. Knicks are bringing back Isiah Thomas as a consultant. No, it is not April 1.

    Aug 6, 2010, 3:44 PM EDT

    UPDATE 3:44 pm: The NBA is officially looking into this deal — where a college head coach consults with an NBA team and is considered a player “recruiter” — to see if it violates league rules. Those league rules include that a team representative cannot have contact with college underclassmen. Which is essentially the core…

  12. How desperate are the Knicks to get LeBron? Isiah Thomas made their final pitch.

    Jul 8, 2010, 6:37 PM EDT

    There’s a long list of things that were just never going to work but got tried anyway. Napoleon invading Russia. Cop Rock. Lindsay Lohan and acting lessons. Isiah Thomas selling New York to LeBron James. Yes, that last one really happened. We’re not so sure about Lohan and acting lessons. When the Knicks needed to…

  13. What do the Knicks have to lure LeBron? New York City

    May 17, 2010, 10:23 AM EDT

    Clippers fans are throwing a quaint little parade. Bulls fans are acting like frontrunners. Cavaliers fans are FREAKING OUT. The Knicks? They are ready to make a pitch to LeBron James using the best selling point they have: New York City. The stars, the glamour, the fast paced life, all of it. Living the perfect…

  14. Dolan's edict to Newsday, be nice to the Knicks?

    Apr 21, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    The Dolan family’s media empire is vast. It includes Cablevision, the fifth largest cable television provider in the nation, the New York Knicks (with the television rights staying within the Cablevision family) and Newsday, the newspaper and Website. A favorite sport of newspapers in New York: ripping the inept handling of the Knicks. It’s a…
