  1. Report: Israeli team reaches out to Amar’e Stoudemire

    Aug 16, 2011, 12:45 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    There are a handful of NBA players heading to Israel when the lockout drags into the NBA season: Jordan Farmar and Omri Casspi are the big names. (Note, I’m not even saying “if” games are lost anymore because it seems unavoidable.) But they may be joined by a bigger name. In an article at the…

  2. Chris Mullin thinks Donnie Walsh will work again

    Aug 16, 2011, 12:12 PM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    Donnie Walsh is currently a consultant for the Knicks. Which essentially means he is being paid to go away. That despite getting the team back to the playoffs and brining in stars while cutting the payroll in half. Most places that gets you a raise and job security, with the Knicks it gets you kicked…

  3. Phil Jackson takes a crack at James Dolan, and about that retirement…

    Aug 13, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Phil Jackson answers questions at a post-game news conference following Game 4 of their NBA Western Conference semi-final basketball playoff against the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas

    Phil Jackson might as well get a parking space at the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, he’s there so much. Friday night he helped present Tex Winter and Dennis Rodman. While he was there, the Chicago Tribune got a hold of him and asked him about his plans for retirement, since rumors continue he’d be taking…

  4. Video: Mozgov goes Blake Griffin on someone else

    Aug 12, 2011, 4:01 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    When you think of Timofey Mozgov and dunks, you tend to think of what Blake Griffin did to him last season. But Mozgov can dunk, too. Mozgov and Russia were playing Lithuania in a tuneup for EuroBasket when Mozgov ran the floor for the secondary break, got the pass in the paint and posterized some…

  5. Quote of the day: Kemp no fan of Madison Square Garden

    “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…

  6. Patrick Ewing: “I still consider myself a Knick”

    Aug 11, 2011, 11:20 AM EDT

    NBA CHAMPIONSHIPS

    Patrick Ewing — currently a Magic assistant coach — wants a head coaching job. He’s had a few interviews (most recently with the Pistons) but has yet to win the gig. But is dream job? That is with the New York Knicks, he said on the Mike Lupica show on ESPN New York. “I hope…

  7. Mullin could have gone into Hall and been Knicks GM

    Aug 11, 2011, 9:20 AM EDT

    Chris Mullin

    As Chris Mullin heads into the Hall of Fame telling cool stories about him and Larry Bird, there is a tinge of regret in New York. When Mullin was pushed out the door as general manager of the Golden State Warriors — so Don Nelson’s cabal could have more power — there were other teams…

  8. Don’t expect any more Knicks front office shakeups

    After letting Donnie Walsh go — because all he did is return the team to the playoffs while slashing the payroll in half, why would you want to keep him around? — the question became who was on dock? What would owner James Dolan do next to screw up the stability of the franchise? Turns…

  9. Stoudemire organizing some informal Knicks practices

    Aug 8, 2011, 3:10 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    Don’t worry, they won’t go over defense. But you can add the Knicks to the list of teams where the players are thinking of working out together this off-season. And you can thank Amar’e Stoudemire for that, according to Hoopsworld’s Alex Kennedy. Amare Stoudemire is planning offseason workouts for the New York Knicks. The team…

But because we know some of you out there can’t wait to see another reality show about another NBA star, we bring you the official trailer from “LaLa’s Full Court Life.” This was actually filmed through the…

  11. Carmelo Anthony thinks 57% of BRI is fair enough, thanks

    Aug 6, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo Anthony has Puerto Rican ties and so he hosts a charity weekend there. As part of that, he did an interview with a local newspaper. You’re never going to believe it, but the subject of playing overseas came up. I know, shocking, right? And even more stunning, Melo said he was keeping his options…

    The Beacon Theater Joins MSG Entertainment

    James Dolan, the owner of the New York Knicks and head of the Cablevision Systems Incorporated empire, is the front man for a blues band.

    Former Hawks head coach Mike Woodson seems to be closer to being the lead assistant coach under Mike D’Antoni with the New York Knicks, to being the Knicks designated defensive coordinator. Woodson and D’Antoni met Monday and things seem to be moving in that direction, according to Marc Berman at the New York Post. Woodson…

  14. Woodson to meet with Knicks for lead assistant position

    Aug 2, 2011, 11:34 AM EDT

    IL: Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls

    Would you rather be the head coach in Minnesota or the lead assistant and defensive coordinator in New York City? Mike Woodson isn’t faced with that choice. Yet. But the former Atlanta Hawks coach is in the running for both jobs. He interviewed in Minnesota before and might be a front-runner there (nobody seems to…

  15. Stephon Marbury doubts Amar’e or Melo could hack it in China

    Jul 30, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony Panda

    It’s always a nice Saturday morning when Stephon Marbury is back on our pages. It’s comforting. Like the crazy old guy at the coffee shop who wants to talk to you about how aliens stole his shoes. The New York Post gave Marbury a ring to ask him whether it would work for Carmelo Anthony…

    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.

    Jul 28, 2011, 6:12 PM EDT

    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…

    Amare Stoudemire Vouge

    You go to New York for the opportunities. That’s’ why Amar’e Stoudemire signed there. Well, that and the $99 million. But also the opportunities — like the opportunity to be seen as the savior who helped turn around a struggling franchise in a basketball-crazy city. Or the opportunity to branch out into the world of…

  20. Stoudemire says back still not right, so he sits and rests

    Jul 26, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    While other NBA players have been spotted hitting the gym or on courts at the big summer pro/am series like the Drew and Goodman leagues, Amar’e Stoudemire has been working on his clothing lines. Not playing, not even working out. Just resting his body. Because his back is not right yet. A couple months after…

    Since billionaire owners and millionaire players are bitterly divided over how much money they’ll be splitting over the coming years and have locked us out of actual basketball to talk about, PBT will be regaling you this summer  with RetroBall. Using the advanced powers of the internet and NBATV, we’ll bring you interesting stories from years gone…

  22. After all that, the Knicks still dodged the luxury tax

    Jul 23, 2011, 9:28 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    The Knicks went from being a money-burning loser to a cost-effective playoff team with two superstars in just a few years under Donnie Walsh. How cost effective? They brought in a second superstar last season in Carmelo Anthony after paying through the nose for Amar’e Stoudemire, and they still dodged the luxury tax. From the…

  23. You know it’s late July when Robert Swift rumors start

    stern tattoo. stern tattoo

    Things change. The swallows really don’t come back to Capistrano anymore. Coffee is not 5¢ a cup anymore. Some late July, there will not be rumors about where Robert Swift will play in the NBA. But that year is not this year. We have Robert Swift rumors. Swift — the well inked, of injured center…

    Jul 21, 2011, 7:28 PM EDT

    Spike Lee

    NBA season ticket holders have to pay early to get their seats at a “discounted” rate for the next season — usually before the playoffs are over, before free agency has begun. Or in the case of this year, before they know if there will be games this fall. Hundreds of thousands of people —…
