New York Knicks

  1. Ramon Sessions draws interest from Knicks, Hawks, Blazers

    Feb 17, 2011, 4:26 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    We’re members of the Ramon Sessions fan club. He’s not going to make you forget about Chris Paul, but he’s a quality point guard who plays within himself. He’s quick (clearly a lot quicker than Derek Fisher and Steve Blake after dropping 32 on the Lakers Wednesday), he’s good in transition and impressive on the…

  2. Report: Nuggets want four Knicks starters for Carmelo Anthony

    Feb 17, 2011, 10:47 AM EST

    carmelo anthony dunk

    Knicks fans have been clamoring for Donnie Walsh to just make the deal — doesn’t matter what the price is, the Knicks need Carmelo Anthony. Knicks fans are desperate. You still sure? According to Jonathan Abrams at the New York Times, the price is every starter not named Stoudemire. According to a Knicks official, Denver…

  3. Report: Nets back in mix, talking to Nuggets about ‘Melo

    Feb 16, 2011, 7:58 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    It just felt from the first minutes like this was going to happen. The New Jersey Nets and Denver Nuggets are talking Carmelo Anthony trade again, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo, the Bergen Record and ESPN’s Chris Broussard. One source described talks as “progressing” and said they have been ongoing between Denver and New…

  4. Isiah Thomas does not deny he is consulting with Knicks

    Feb 16, 2011, 4:19 PM EST

    This post will help you understand why, during the press conference introducing Carmelo Anthony as a Knick next week, you will hear Donnie Walsh thank Isiah Thomas through gritted teeth. Thomas was on sports talk radio in Miami Tuesday night and, amazingly, there was little talk about FIU basketball and a lot about the Knicks.…

  5. Five trades we’d like to see (and we’re not talking ‘Melodrama)

    Feb 16, 2011, 2:57 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    It’s been quiet. Too quiet. Serious trade chatter is down around the league. People are talking but there is less meaningful dialogue going on than in an Adam Sandler movie. Maybe it’s fear of the new CBA. Maybe it’s Carmelo Anthony creating a bottleneck. Maybe people are too busy playing Angry Birds. Well, we are…

  6. The other Carmelo Anthony trade wild card: Mark Cuban

    Feb 16, 2011, 12:35 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    There’s a lot of reasons we like Mark Cuban. He’s smart. He’s not afraid to buck the system. He’s accessible. He’s reasonably forthcoming (certainly in comparison to most owners). And he’s unpredictable. That unpredictability is one reason people don’t think the Mavericks are out of the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes. The Mavericks need a wing scorer,…

  7. Carmelo Anthony trade talks slowly picking up steam

    Feb 16, 2011, 10:53 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Haven’t we — and all the parties involved — been talking about this since last summer? If so, how can things be dragging out so slowly now? But it is. Nothing has been quick or painless about the Carmelo Anthony trade situation. But now something is going to go down in the next week. It…

  8. Carmelo Anthony trade updates: Don’t believe anybody

    Feb 15, 2011, 9:38 AM EST

    carmelo anthony

    It’s at the point with the Carmelo Anthony trade drama to stop taking anything anybody says seriously. It’s all lies, spin and negotiation tactics. Any truth in comments from people involved in the trade is incidental to their motives. Look at Tuesday’s reports. The New York Daily News is saying the Knicks could make a…

  9. Expect Carmelo Anthony to play for the West at the All-Star Game

    Feb 14, 2011, 9:17 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    If Carmelo Anthony is traded to the Knicks or Nets (or any team in the East) before Sunday, he would play for the East in the All-Star Game. And then LaMarcus Aldridge would get his just reward. But don’t bet on it. You can expect Anthony to be with the Nuggets — and the Western…

  10. Nets, Nuggets still not talking about Carmelo Anthony again

    Feb 14, 2011, 5:09 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    When Mikhail Prokhorov pulled the Nets out of Carmelo Anthony chase, there were some around the NBA who said he was just acting and trying to come off as a bad ass at the negotiating table. He was trying to establish his presence and persona with a dramatic move. My thought: If you made $15…

  11. Phil Jackson bids farewell to Madison Square Garden

    Feb 11, 2011, 5:26 PM EST

    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…

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

    Feb 11, 2011, 11:26 AM EST

    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…

  13. Landry Fields can’t even sell Landry Fields jerseys

    Feb 10, 2011, 7:41 PM EST

    Landry Fields

    Spike Lee often rocks the Landry Fields jersey (game worn, thank you very much). So that makes it a hot item at sporting good stores throughout the boroughs, right? Turns out, not always. Even if you send Landry Fields himself undercover into a Modell’s Sporting Goods store, posing as an employee, he can’t sell his…

  14. If not traded, ‘Melo says he’d consider signing with Denver after all. Right.

    Feb 9, 2011, 4:25 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Since day one of the ‘Melodrama, whenever Carmelo Anthony has been asked if he would sign with Denver he has said it was one of the options he would consider. That’s not what his people — the fine folks from CAA, for example — were saying privately to the Nuggets and everyone else. They said…

  15. David Stern is trying to make sure Knicks keep Donnie Walsh

    Feb 9, 2011, 1:21 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Three years ago, it was NBA Commissioner David Stern who helped guide Donnie Walsh to the New York Knicks. The franchise needed a stable… no, it needed a sane hand at the helm. Walsh hasn’t been perfect, but he has changed the direction of the franchise. He got the payroll under control, started building with…

  16. Is Carmelo Anthony to Lakers rumor just to prod the Knicks?

    Feb 8, 2011, 5:05 PM EST

    carmelo anthony

    Of course they feel that way. Suddenly reports coming of New York writers are saying that the Carmelo Anthony to the Lakers for Andrew Bynum rumors that sprung forth today are really about the Knicks. Because it’s always about you, New York, isn’t it? Always. First we have Alan Hahn at Newsday who writes: A…

  17. Rockets, Knicks talking Aaron Brooks deal. Or not.

    Feb 8, 2011, 1:16 PM EST

    Image (1) nba_brooks_250.jpg for post 1510

    Consider these Aaron Brooks trade rumors a case study in sources. We’ll start with this: The New York Knicks need a backup point guard behind Raymond Felton. Toney Douglas has some skills but does not seem a point guard fit in the Knicks up-tempo style. In Houston, Aaron Brooks is coming off the bench and…

  18. Report: Lakers, Nuggets have preliminary Carmelo Anthony talks

    Feb 8, 2011, 12:28 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 12:28 pm: Jim Buss — the son of owner Jerry Buss and the guy who is the real day-to-day head of the Lakers basketball-side operations — turned down a Carmelo Anthony for Andrew Bynum trade, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News (on twitter). He adds that Phil Jackson and Kobe…

  19. Dwight Howard: “I never said I wanted to leave”

    Feb 8, 2011, 11:40 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Already there is speculation about what Dwight Howard is going to do in the summer of 2012, with a report that he wants to find a way to the Knicks or Lakers. Dwight Howard himself is sick of it. He tweeted this: “I never said I wanted to leave stop reading the rumors. It’s really…

  20. Three-team talks about Carmelo Anthony trade continue, Nuggets still dragging feet

    Feb 8, 2011, 11:06 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 11:06 am: In an effort to push the deal forward, Knicks owner James Dolan called Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke directly to negotiate a deal, according to the New York Daily News. According to a source familiar with the negotiations, Dolan’s decision to become more involved in the Anthony trade talks is a sign that…

  21. Spike Lee thinks Kevin Garnett needs to calm down

    Feb 8, 2011, 9:55 AM EST

    Washington Wizards v New York Knicks

    Spike Lee is an institution at Knicks games, sitting courtside rocking the Landry Fields jersey. Jawing back and forth with players. Talking smack. And it’s all in good fun. Well, except when Kevin Garnett was in town recently, Lee said to ESPNNewYork. That guy lost it. This is really surprising, and this is all true.…

  22. Warkentien’s new contract with Knicks ends July 1

    Feb 7, 2011, 5:11 PM EST

    Mark Walkenstein

    And we thought the hiring of Mark Warkentien director of pro personnel was a sign of stability coming to the New York Knicks. Silly us. We should know better. Warkentien’s contract ends July 1, according to Frank Isola at the New York Daily News. If you’re paranoid — and if you live in New York…

  23. Does Dwight Howard already have one eye on the door?

    Feb 7, 2011, 12:57 PM EST

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    This is where we are now. When a player is a couple years away from free agency — as Dwight Howard is in 2012 — there will be stories about how if the team doesn’t win a title he is gone. The stories have started about Chris Paul as well, all in the wake of…

  24. Stop us if you’ve heard this one: New York closing in on Melo

    Feb 6, 2011, 12:52 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Recently we spread the word on a Yahoo! report saying Melo’s people had informed teams that the Knicks were the only team he would sign an extension with. From there, there has been more movement towards an actual trade with New York, signaling a possible shift in Denver’s so-far ice-cold approach to dealing with the…

  25. Walsh gets a win, Knicks hire former Nugget GM Warkentien

    Feb 5, 2011, 12:21 PM EST

    Mark Walkenstein

    In a week where he needed one, Knicks president of basketball operations Donnie Walsh got a win. The Knicks have hired former Nuggets GM Mark Warkentien as their director of pro personnel, the team announced Saturday. Since he was expected to be hired as a consultant so this is a much more entrenched position within…
