    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    When elite players come into the big stage of Madison Square Garden they want to put on a show. When elite players get the chance to perform on Christmas Day, they want to put on a show. Kevin Durant put on a show at the expense of the Knicks. Durant had 29 points on 10-of-16…

  2. Knicks ticket prices to go up again next season

    Mar 6, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    Madison Square Garden

    The “cheap” seats at Madison Square Garden are about to get less so. Last year ticket prices for New York Knicks games jumped a whopping 49 percent as the renovation of Madison Square Garden’s lower bowl (combined with a team actually worth seeing) changed the economics of one of the NBA’s legendary buildings. James Dolan…

  3. Knicks bump courtside disabled seat prices 900 percent. Classy.

    Madison Square Garden

    Christmas Day the Knicks will take the floor at the renovated Madison Square Garden — and fans are going to pay a premium to see them thanks to finally having a decent team on the court and the upgraded facilities. But this is ridiculous. From the New York Post (via IamaGM.com). (Quadriplegic former Brooklyn high…

  4. Even if the Knicks suck, the food at the Garden will be good

    Music Madison Square Garden

    The first phase of the $850 million renovation of Madison Square Garden is just about done and will open when the Rangers start their season soon. It will be ready for the Knicks whenever the NBA gets around to having a season, too. We don’t know how good the Knicks will be once the season…

  5. Madison Square Garden stock dinged because of lockout

    Aug 23, 2011, 5:59 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony James Dolan

    The conventional wisdom is the players will feel the financial impact of the lockout long before the owners. The players are millionaires who (in some cases) lead extravagant lifestyles. The owners can lead extravagant lifestyles, they are billionaires with deeper pockets. But at least one owner is already feeling the pinch of the lockout. The…

    “If you’ve been to some of these other arenas like Madison Square Garden, the rats are bigger than the average point guard.” —Shawn Kemp, in a chat with fans on the site of the Seattle Times (hat tip to @mhaubs from The Painted Area — a blog you should be all over this summer as…

    There is a crew of 1,000 construction workers, broken out into groups that are working 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to completely remodel the interior of the venerable Madison Square Garden. There will be new seats, new suites and even a new bar where you can watch the Knicks walk from the…

  8. Knicks fans can pay extra to see players go to, from locker room

    Delta SKY360 Club

    Luxury boxes transformed American sports. The revenue from corporations and wealthy individuals who rent out those boxes in majors sports arenas across the nation — followed by the premium seating below them — dramatically changed the revenue streams in all professional sports. Now, it’s about finding more things people will pay a premium for. During…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Celtics rout Knicks, take 3-0 series lead

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    This is why the Celtics are the conference champs until somebody beats them. Sure, the team hasn’t looked quite right since it traded away Kendrick Perkins for Jeff Green, and their bench is still a complete mess. Yes, the Celtics gave up the No. 2 seed in the East by finishing their regular season in something of…

  10. NBA playoffs return to Manhattan, will New York like the show?

    Apr 22, 2011, 2:39 PM EDT

    Spike Lee

    The NBA playoffs return to the heart of New York, to Madison Square Garden Friday night after seven long years away and will be welcomed back like the prodigal son. Celebrities will ring the court — including Spike Lee in some all-orange disaster of an outfit — and profanity-laced chants will rain down on the…

  11. Knicks ticket prices to jump average 49 percent next season

    Mar 11, 2011, 2:57 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Apparently the economy is turning around in New York City. Because the cost of seeing the new and improved New York Knicks will be a lot higher next year — the average seat price is going up by 49 percent, as the New York Post reports. MSG sports president Scott O’Neil is scheduled to meet…

  12. Phil Jackson bids farewell to Madison Square Garden

    Feb 11, 2011, 5:26 PM EDT

    Image (1) pjackson_finals-thumb-250x140-13332.jpg for post 2458

    This last tour around the NBA for Phil Jackson has not really been all that filled with fanfare. Probably because he insulted every city he’s been in, then his teams went out and generally stomped the opponent. Not the way one generates a lot of love. But Madison Square Garden, that’s different. That’s where he…

  13. Mike D’Antoni to Knicks fans: Stop chanting “we want Me-lo”

    Feb 11, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    We all get it Knicks fans, you want Carmelo Anthony. You’re convinced he is the next piece of the puzzle. And so long as that puzzle isn’t defense, we agree with you. People 3,000 miles away know you want ‘Melo. The brass in Denver knows you want ‘Melo. Donnie Walsh and James Dolan know you…

  14. LeBron, Wade love Madison Square Garden (just not enough to sign with the Knicks, apparently)

    Jan 27, 2011, 3:21 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Madison Square Garden remains one of the iconic buildings in the NBA. It’s New York — Concrete jungle where dreams are made of. Visitors get pumped up to play there — which for a long time meant guys like Kobe Bryant were going to drop a big number on the hapless Knicks. The Knicks are…

  15. New York tabloids welcome LeBron with all the love you’d expect

    Daily_News_LeBron

    Maybe the only thing worse than a woman scorned is a New York tabloid headline writer scorned. And make no mistake, New York feels scorned by LeBron. They thought he could choose nowhere else because, hey — they’re New York. It’s inconceivable you would choose warm weather and other superstars over New York. Tonight LeBron…

  16. Video: Paul Pierce’s game winner, Stoudemire’s almost answer

    Dec 16, 2010, 8:54 AM EDT

    i-1

    It was one of the most dramatic endings to a game this season — and worth watching again. Paul Pierce with the veteran move trying to drive, getting his body into Stoudemire then hitting the step back. Stoudemire answering with a three to win the game — but just about .02 seconds too late (and…

  17. Game of the night: Welcome back to big-time basketball, New York

    Dec 16, 2010, 1:12 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce was taking bows after a December regular-season game. Spike Lee was out on the court yelling at the referees and the Celtics. The biggest stars were spectacular on a court lit like a stage. There was an impressive game-winner and almost a stunner that topped it — the best ending to a game…

  18. Knicks and Nets, it’s a rivalry now. Almost.

    Nov 30, 2010, 3:24 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets Owner Mikhail Prokhorov Meets with Jay Z

    It started with a radio spot, which aired a couple of times over the weekend during Knicks games (via Nets Daily): “Hey Nets. You can walk like us, you can talk like us, but you ain’t never gonna be like us.  Knicks, Nets, Tuesday, 7:30, MSG.” Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov responded to that Tuesday in…

    This could be the coolest thing ever… until some guy starts dropping Junior Mints over the side. Ongoing renovations to Madison Square Garden will include new spectator bridges that will look down on the action from a unique angle, according to ESPNNewYork.com. “They’ll be like no other seat in professional sports or entertainment,” MSG President…

  20. Gilbert Arenas to make his return tonight in New York

    Nov 5, 2010, 3:02 PM EDT

    Arenas_beardshot

    Seems somehow fitting to have Gilbert Arenas return to the game on a big stage. Arenas will make his return tonight at Madison Square Garden against the Knicks, according to the official Wizards twitter account. Arenas missed the end of training camp and the start of the season with a sprained ankle. Tonight marks his…

  22. Magic/Knicks game at Madison Square Garden postponed due to asbestos issue

    Nov 2, 2010, 3:25 PM EDT

    madison-square-garden

    Asbestos that fell from the ceiling of Madison Square Garden onto the playing surface area has led to the postponement of the Magic/Knicks game scheduled for tonight, according to the Knicks. Knicks officials say the game has been postponed out of “an abundance of caution” and that the arena will remain closed until the situation…

  23. Amar’e Stoudemire starting to feel at home in the Garden

    Oct 20, 2010, 10:24 AM EDT

    How good the Knicks will be this season remains to be seen, but they will be a lot more entertaining. And on any given night, Amar’e Stoudemire can just go off. Like putting up 39 points in a preseason game.
