New York Knicks

  1. ‘Melo wants CP3 in New York. Isn’t this why there’s a lockout?

    Oct 21, 2011, 2:19 PM EDT

    Jordan Brand Presents The 23/25 Energy Space In Dallas, TX

    This news is not surprising. In fact, I’d be shocked if Carmelo Anthony didn’t say he wants Chris Paul to play for the Knicks. It’s been on the radar since ‘Melo’s wedding and New Yorkers are salivating. But it also has lockout undertones. It helps explains why we are here. First, the quote from the…

  2. Carmelo Anthony looks for place to host NYC charity game

    Well, it looks like we’ll have more time for All-Star filled charity games and international exhibition tours. So Carmelo Anthony is looking to bring a big one to the New York area… he just needs to find a venue, reports the New York Post. The problem is that Madison Square Garden is out (home to…

  3. Charles Oakley smacks around Knicks, D’Antoni for fun

    Oct 21, 2011, 9:39 AM EDT

    chares-oakley

    We told you the other day how Charles Oakley piled on LeBron James, joining a long line of former players and fans who do that (Charles Barkley is their front man). But that was just part of a whole interview of Oakley being Oakley, which you can find at SLAM. One other part of interest…

  4. Famed trainer say Eddy Curry is in NBA shape. Riiiiight.

    Oct 17, 2011, 3:02 PM EDT

    ecurry_beard

    It would balance out the karmic scales if, when the lockout ends, Eddy Curry were in shape and ready to play in the NBA while other guys had put on the weight he had shed. That would amuse me, but I won’t believe it until I see it. I think the entire island of Manhattan…

  5. Melo thinks the perception of his defense is team-centric

    Oct 13, 2011, 7:11 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony Panda

    Yeah, no, Melo’s not backing down on this criticism of his defense. After saying yesterday that it was a matter of unfamiliarity last season and a flawed perception, Melo continued his media cruising for his shoe with a conversation with Grantland. And this time, it’s all about the team. Kind of. You said you want…

  6. Carmelo Anthony says he made the right decision with trade

    Oct 13, 2011, 11:50 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    It was an ugly mess watching Carmelo Anthony force his way out of Denver last season. But for Anthony, it was the right move. He looks at the ongoing lockout, the lost games, the limbo he would be in as a free agent and thinks how he handled everything worked out for the best. That’s…

  7. Video: Amar’e Stoudemire is still optimistic about the lockout

    Oct 12, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    Fashion's Night Out At Macy's Herald Square

    Maybe we need more Amar’e in the room. (Get it? Because it sounds like amore, the Italian word for love? Like the song? You see what I did there?) Amar’e Stoudemire is making the promotional circuit, and as we told you this morning, brought up the prospect of a players’ league being formed if the…

  8. Stoudemire calls Turiaf, Diaw “smelliest players in the league”

    Oct 12, 2011, 5:41 PM EDT

    Ronny Turiaf

    Columnist and ESPN host Dan Le Batard recently had Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire on his show, and at around the 3:00 mark of the interview, he asked Stoudemire who the smelliest players in the league are. Here’s Stoudemire’s response, courtesy of I am a GM and The Basketball Jones: Dan Le Batard: Kevin Love told…

  9. Carmelo Anthony defends his defense

    Oct 12, 2011, 3:59 PM EDT

    Celtics' Pierce drives into defense of Knicks' Anthony during the first half of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Carmelo Anthony is not a good defensive player. That’s not just me talking, after ‘Melo was traded from Denver to New York Nuggets coach George Karl told TNT his team would be much better on defense now that they didn’t have to “handle what Carmelo gives you” on that end. Anthony took exception to that…

  10. Did Carmelo Anthony call Rick Fox a Hall of Famer? Um…

    Oct 12, 2011, 2:10 PM EDT

    The Haier Shooting Stars Competition

    I like Rick Fox. Smart, underrated role player on some very good teams — the Lakers recognized this and picked him up to go along side Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal. Great fit. But Fox was not a great player. Well, I think that and you think that. Apparently Carmelo sees things differently. ‘Melo was…

  11. Video: Amar’e Stoudemire posterizes Blake Griffin poster

    Oct 12, 2011, 1:06 PM EDT

    Stoudemire_dunk2

    We told you that Amar’e Stoudemire was working his way around the ESPN campus talking lockout and pimping his new shoes yesterday. But that was not the best part. This video is, when Stoudemire plays some nerf ball against a Blake Griffin poster. (Via The Point Forward at Sports Illustrated)

  12. Stoudemire hopes for labor deal… or new players league

    Oct 12, 2011, 11:06 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    Someone out there is still hopeful. Amar’e Stoudemire is hopeful. But if that hope is misplaced he has another idea. Amar’e Stoudemire was making the rounds of the ESPN campus on Tuesday to pimp his new shoes, but all anyone wanted to talk about was how he couldn’t wear those shoes on a court right…

  13. Some very good games lost to lockout. Thanks a lot, guys.

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    With the cancellation of the first two weeks of the season, 100 NBA games went down the drain. Hang an asterisk on this season — these are games commissioner David Stern said are gone. He said there is no chance of making them up. But what games are we now going to miss? How about…

  14. Kobe wishes he could play with Carmelo Anthony

    Oct 10, 2011, 1:32 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Let the New York tabloid speculation begin. Actually, even they likely can’t come up with a reasonable scenario where Kobe Bryant becomes a Knick (not that tabloids make their money on being reasonable). But when asked who Kobe most wants to play with, he named the Knicks Carmelo Anthony (via Hoopsworld). “I would actually like…

  15. STAT is now “the Renaissance Man,” via Isiah Thomas?

    Oct 9, 2011, 9:32 AM EDT

    Fashion's Night Out At Macy's Herald Square

    Amar’e Stoudemire once said that skipping college was the “hardest choice” he ever had to make. The guy reads Sun Tzu and political commentary, and visited Israel to explore his roots last year. So he’s kind of a cerebral guy. He’s making up for lost time, though, at FIU where he’s working out. He’s also…

  16. Isiah Thomas quietly drops yet another hint about New York

    Oct 8, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Isiah Thomas

    In a well-seasoned and very even piece from the New York Times on Isiah Thomas Saturday, the architect behind the big charity event this weekend starring LeBron James and Dwyane Wade (who the Times reports came to Isiah, not the other way around), Thomas primarily gave the same answers he always does about the Knicks.…

  17. Heat, Celtics players party together. With Knicks guys.

    Oct 3, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics, Game 5

    Never, not for one minute, think that how you as a fan feel about your heated rival is how a player feels. No matter what intensity you see on the court. This is not the 1950s. As evidence, we present you Knicks, Celtics and Heat players all partying together like it’s 1999. That just hours…

  18. Video: Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh on Law & Order: SVU

    Sep 29, 2011, 1:44 PM EDT

    Tommy Hilfiger Womens - Backstage - Spring 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

    Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony were on “Law & Order: SVU” last night, and they were successfully able to pull off playing themselves. Below is the video of the entire episode — which we’re sure you watched live here on NBC but we guess you want to re-watch it — and ‘Melo and Bosh can…

  19. Set your DVR, part deux: Bosh, ‘Melo on “Law & Order: SVU” Wednesday

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    While we’re pimping NBA players on NBC television shows, we need to remind you: Knicks potential savior Carmelo Anthony and Miami Heat star Chris Bosh will be on “Law & Order: SVU” Wednesday night. Insert your own “nice to see an NBA player with police and not in handcuffs” jokes here. Bosh and ‘Melo are…

  20. Carmelo Anthony had knee, elbow surgeries this summer

    Sep 26, 2011, 9:43 AM EDT

    Nickelodeon Celebrates Largest Ever Worldwide Day Of Play In Washington, Around The World

    Carmelo Anthony has been working the pro-am basketball circuit — he was part of the Goodman team that was in Indianapolis Sunday night — and looking like himself putting up big numbers in smooth way. He dropped 31 points and played a full 48 minutes in Indy. But this summer he also had operations on…

  21. Impact series Day 7: Check out the hops on Iman Shumpert

    Sep 22, 2011, 12:14 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert

    Knicks fans are going to love Iman Shumpert. If you want to know why, just watch the video below — those are some serious hops. He’s looked like a stud at the Impact Competitive Training Series (the  “lockout league”) in Vegas. That, however, is a long way from fitting in and playing well in NBA…

  22. Chauncey Billups says his knee is good to go… are the Knicks?

    Sep 21, 2011, 11:39 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Chauncey Billups is 35 years old and wasn’t really the guy anyone pictured leading a high-octane offense when he was 25. But there he will be whenever next season starts, as the point guard for Mike D’Antoni’s New York Knicks. That was hampered last season by a strained left knee that made it harder and…

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

    Sep 21, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    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…

  24. Turiaf’s hand has healed, he’s ready whenever season starts

    Sep 20, 2011, 4:57 PM EDT

    Ronny Turiaf, Mike D'Antoni

    It’s one of the risks of playing for your country — injuries. Ronny Turiaf was supposed to play for France in EuroBasket, but he broke his hand in a tune-up game against Great Britain. The good news for Knicks fans is that the Energizer Bunny off the bench told NBA.com his hand is nearly healed…

  25. Stoudemire said skipping college was hardest choice of his life

    Sep 20, 2011, 1:02 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire high five

    For some NBA players, college was that inconvenient road bump between AAU ball and the NBA. They may like the college life and getting to play in front of large arenas of ravenous fans, but the classes and studying were an inconvenience. But there are guys in the NBA who would savor the chance to…
