  1. Report: James Dolan’s pretty much had it with his fellow owners

    Nov 13, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    The Beacon Theater Joins MSG Entertainment

    James Dolan isn’t exactly known as a savvy decision-maker. He’s too often been known to act on impulse, like trading the house for Carmelo Anthony when he was going to get Melo one way or another. Or allowing Isiah Thomas to skulk around his house like a murder of crows after destroying the franchise for…

  2. Reports of labor deal being struck premature, talks continue

    Nov 10, 2011, 6:14 PM EDT

    Padlock Arena AP

    Former NBA executive Dave Checketts — the former GM of the Jazz and a guy once up the corporate ladder at Madison Square Garden — went on ESPN 700 in Salt Lake City and said that he has heard the NBA owners and players have reached framework deal for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. That…

  3. Video: Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire hang with Grover

    Nov 10, 2011, 9:08 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    You know you’ve made it in New York when you get invited to do Sesame Street. Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire have made it, this is a clip from a new Sesame Street episode set to air Friday morning (check your local listings). No, ‘Melo and Grover do not count to 18.5 million together (that’s…

  4. Chauncey Billups doesn’t trust players’ collective ability to remain strong for a full season

    Nov 3, 2011, 1:27 PM EDT

    109484492_display_image

    This lockout has never been as simple as one side negotiating against another in an effort to produce a fair deal. There are a number of factors circling the negotiations that inevitably have an impact on their progress and timeline. The NBPA still holds the threat of decertification, a breaking point from which there is…

  5. If Cavs sends Baron Davis packing, Lakers or Knicks may win

    Nov 2, 2011, 8:34 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    As we wait for Billy Hunter and David Stern to sit down and bother to talk to one another, one of the favorite games of NBA fans has become “amnesty clause roulette.” Who will teams waive with the amnesty clause when the season stars again? Then, where will that player land? Few scenarios are as…

  6. Knicks owner Dolan is the rational guy in the room

    Nov 1, 2011, 11:58 AM EDT

    The Beacon Theater Joins MSG Entertainment

    It has come down to this — if you want to see NBA basketball soon, you need to root for the rational mind of James Dolan to prevail. Yes, the Knicks’ James Dolan. The band front man and loyal friend of Isiah Thomas. That rational mind. He is now a guy you can pin your…

  7. Friday night video: Top 10 plays from the 1999 NBA finals

    Oct 28, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 4: San Antonio Spurs v Cleveland Cavaliers

    For some reason, the 1999 NBA finals is on my mind today. You remember that one, the Spurs championship with an asterisk? The one from the strike-shortened season. (Actually, they don’t deserve an asterisk, I was just channeling Phil Jackson for a second). What you see are the top 10 plays from that finals, as…

  8. Larry Hughes wants back in the NBA. I want a Maserati.

    Oct 26, 2011, 5:03 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    Seriously, I do want a Maserati. A 2004 Sypder, ideally. The problem is it’s a tad outside the “blogger affordability index.” Also, as a father of young daughters in car seats, the two-seat convertible Sypder may not be an ideal match for my current lifestyle. Basically, I want it, but it’s not going to happen.…

  9. Amar’e Stoudemire pitching half-hour comedy show?

    Oct 24, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Fashion's Night Out At Macy's Herald Square

    Amar’e Stoudemire isn’t just working out with Isiah Thomas and talking about forming a players’ league. Apparently he’s also becoming an entertainment force. And that includes his own show. “The Amar’e Stoudemire Super-Fun Existentialist Discovery Half-Hour!” Okay, that’s not the name (but it should be). Anyway, from the Hollywood Reporter: Earlier in October, New York Knicks…

  10. ‘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…

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

    Oct 21, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

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

    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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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)

  21. 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…

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

    Oct 11, 2011, 9:23 AM EDT

    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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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.…
