New York Knicks

  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Don’t fear the Heat

    Jan 28, 2011, 2:26 AM EST

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    What you missed while getting ready for the Angry Birds television series…. Knicks 93, Heat 88: It seems weird to say this, but the Knicks won this with defense. They clearly came in with a plan to focus on LeBron James, not let him beat them. He finished with 24 points but on 7-of-24 shooting.…

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

    Jan 27, 2011, 3:21 PM EST

    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…

  3. Stoudemire: “Nobody’s afraid of the Miami Heat”

    Jan 27, 2011, 9:45 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    The New York Knicks have lost both meetings with the Miami Heat this season and come into Thursday’s showdown just 3-7 in their last 10 overall. But you have to like this about Amar’e Stoudemire — he is defiant (as reported by ESPN New York). “Nobody’s afraid of the Miami Heat.” The Heat squad that…

  4. Knicks pass Lakers as league’s most valuable franchise

    Jan 26, 2011, 7:38 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire high five

    The return of the Knicks to prominence has led to a 12 percent jump in the value of the franchise, vaulting it over the Lakers into the top spot on Forbes’ rankings of NBA franchise value. The Knicks jumped from a worth of $586 million to $655 million, based on increased season ticket sales and…

  5. Sorry, New York, but Stoudemire is no MVP. Rose either.

    Jan 26, 2011, 3:10 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire

    We all want to be smart, clever, cutting edge. Nobody wants to give the tired, same old answer. Even if it’s the right one. Ask “experts” and fans who the best player in the NBA is and they’ll talk about how Player X is better than LeBron James. Kobe has more rings and finishes better,…

  6. Knicks look to add big man such as Joel Przybilla or Marc Gasol

    Jan 26, 2011, 12:58 PM EST

    Okay, sure, the Knicks would love to trade for Carmelo Anthony. We’re sick of talking about it, too, but we are legally obligated to throw that in any time the Knicks and trades are mentioned in the same paragraph. But that’s not the only trade the Knicks are considering, according to Mitch Lawrence at the…

  7. Carmelo Anthony has no idea what is going to happen

    Jan 26, 2011, 9:53 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Through the entire Melodrama — from before training camp up through last week — there was a confidence around Carmelo Anthony. Like he felt in some control of the situation, like he knew what was going to happen. No more. Mikhail Prokhorov changed the game. The Nets walked away. Everybody’s fallback option is gone. The…

  8. Former personal coach sues Allan Houston, Knicks

    Jan 25, 2011, 11:10 PM EST

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    Apparently there is no statute of limitations on people who feel wronged by Allan Houston. Art Rondeau  — a personal coach who worked with Houston in 1999 and 2000 — Monday sued Houston and the Knicks, according to the Associated Press. The lawsuit claims Rondeau worked with Houston to reverse shooting slumps, however the guard…

  9. Bosh has high ankle sprain, could miss another week, more

    Jan 25, 2011, 4:05 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is not the best player on the Miami Heat. He may be the most indispensable — with Udonis Haslem out, the drop off among bigs after Bosh is dramatic. They have nobody else who comes close to bringing what Bosh brings to the table. And Bosh is going to be out a little…

  10. Andray Blatche calls in to radio show to defend his defenseless play

    Jan 25, 2011, 3:18 PM EST

    Andray Blatche blocked

    We could tell you how bad Andray Blatche played last night (in PBT’s recaps we said he should have been benched) but we’ll let Wizards coach Flip Saunders tell you, courtesy our media brothers in arms at CSNWashington.com: “He was terrible, he was bad.  He was bad.  He didn’t look like he had energy or…

  11. Report: Nuggets may have interest in Anthony Randolph from Knicks. Really?

    Jan 25, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Milwaukee Bucks

    Every report that comes out of New York about a possible deal the Denver Nuggets like enough to send Carmelo Anthony to Madison Square Garden is just harder to believe than the last one. I have no doubt that “a person with knowledge of the Nuggets’ thinking” told the respectable Alan Hahn of Newsday this…

  12. D’Antoni not that worried about Knicks six-game losing streak

    Jan 24, 2011, 10:36 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v New York Knicks

    When a hitter is in a slump in July — let’s say, hypothetically the entire Dodgers roster — there seems to be a game or two where he starts hitting the ball hard but still can’t buy a hit. You can feel the slump’s about to end, it just won’t. Mike D’Antoni sounds that way…

  13. Denver’s other big problem: Nene

    Jan 23, 2011, 10:31 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Beyond the ongoing, never-ending, painfully unresolved saga of Carmelo Anthony lies the dread and doom of another situation. If you check Denver’s books, you’ll notice that Nene has an ETO (Early Termination Option) for 2011, meaning he can jump ship and enter free agency should he elect to do so. Nene loves Denver and wants…

  14. Report: Knicks still lobbing Carmelo offers, Nuggets still rejecting

    Jan 22, 2011, 5:30 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    With the Nets out of the way, New York has resumed its calm, cool, and collected pursuit of Carmelo Anthony, but are hitting the same roadblock they have since the beginning: Denver doesn’t want hardly anything the Knicks have to offer. From The New York Post: A deal with the Nuggets appears to be, according…

  15. Knicks’ Wilson Chandler fires agent, looks to cash in next summer

    Jan 21, 2011, 1:27 PM EST

    WChandler_Hinrich

    Back in the fall, Wilson Chandler’s agent Chris Luchey tried to convince Knicks GM Donnie Walsh to sign his client — whose rookie deal was about to end — to an extension. The Knicks are all about financial flexibility going forward, so they said no. Chandler has gone out and had the best year of…

  16. Knicks may get ‘Melo, but don’t expect it via free agency

    Jan 20, 2011, 1:55 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    There are a lot of questions and a lot of rumors flying around about what happens with Carmelo Anthony now that the Nets have pulled out of the running. One of the theories: Anthony will play out his contract, opt out next summer and come to the Knicks as a free agent. Not going to…

  17. Now what for Carmelo Anthony? Denver?

    Jan 19, 2011, 8:43 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Denver Nuggets

    A trade between Denver and New Jersey for Carmelo Anthony always made sense — for Denver and New Jersey. Anthony never seemed all that interested, the fact he wanted to meet with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov to be sold on the team does not make him sound like a guy who wanted to go there.…

  18. Nets walk away from Carmelo Anthony trade

    Jan 19, 2011, 6:12 PM EST

    Cavaliers Nuggets Basketball

    Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has told Nets management to walk away from all Carmelo Anthony negotiations. He has reportedly cancelled a meeting with Anthony, and says his decision is final. The Denver Post has a recap of what Prokhorov said during a pre-game news conference on Wednesday about his decision to walk away from the table: “There…

  19. It’s time to end this ‘Melo drama

    Jan 19, 2011, 4:40 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Utah Jazz, Game 6

    It’s time. Carmelo Anthony and the will he/won’t he, New Jersey or New York (or Chicago) drama, it’s been an entertaining little sideshow to the NBA season. Some nice garlic mashed potatoes next to the rare prime rib. But for everyone involved, this saga has reached the point of diminishing returns. With the arrival Wednesday…

  20. Knicks are no playoff lock, Mike D’Antoni warns

    Jan 19, 2011, 1:44 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    Life is good when you’re a New York Knick and you are winning. And they are winning, more than nearly everyone expected. We thought we here at PBT were a little optimistic saying in our season preview they would win 38 this season. Right now, the Knicks are on pace for 44-45 wins. Their point…

  21. ‘Melo: “I would never go about it the way LeBron did”

    Jan 18, 2011, 11:54 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony may not be handling his departure from Denver perfectly, but after watching what LeBron James did last summer leaving Cleveland Anthony told Sports Illustrated he learned some lessons. “I would never go about it the way LeBron did it,” the Denver Nuggets’ three-time All-Star forward told Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Ian Thomsen… “If…

  22. If Knicks trade for 2012 pick, they can trade 2011 and 2013

    Jan 18, 2011, 10:43 AM EST

    Image (1) donnie_walsh-thumb-250x250-21082.jpg for post 6239

    Knicks GM Donnie Walsh has said he has a way to get more than one first round draft pick — a not so subtle comment aimed at the Denver Nuggets (who still are working hard with the Nets on a Carmelo Anthony trade and are avoiding the Knicks like they have the Hantavirus). There have…

  23. Nets say no permission given to talk to ‘Melo. Yet. Meanwhile Knicks talk more picks.

    Jan 17, 2011, 5:10 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    Just as an update, here is where we stand with Carmelo Anthony and the trade rumors, a saga that has become more annoying and drawn out than a Grey’s Anatomy storyline. Sunday it was reported that the Nets were given permission to talk to Carmelo Anthony, which really meant Nets owners Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z…

  24. Report: Anthony Randolph requests trade from Knicks

    Jan 17, 2011, 4:22 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Milwaukee Bucks

    The Knicks have reportedly been shopping Anthony Randolph around, seeking a first-round pick they could use in Carmleo Anthony trade. Of course, it’s looking more and more likely that there will not be a ‘Melo trade for the Knicks as the Nets have become clear front runners (if owner Mikhail Prokhorov can get ‘Melo to…

  25. Memphis may not blow it up after Conley extension

    Jan 15, 2011, 10:30 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Sacramento Kings

    As we mentioned Friday night, Chris Broussard of ESPN reported Friday night that the Nuggets are not interested in the deal the Knicks were trying to put together which would land them Carmelo Anthony, with O.J. Mayo going to Denver. It’s a major sigh of relief for Grizzlies fans who would have been doubly-screwed in such…
