  1. Anthony Mason given hardest job in the world: Get Eddy Curry ready to play

    What’s the hardest job in the United States? President? Cleaning out sewers? Janitor at a porno theater? How about getting Eddy Curry ready to play basketball? That’s right up there, and with less chance of success. And that is also former Knick Anthony Mason’s new job, according to the New York Post. Mostly this is…

  2. Who really deserves to start on the Knicks front line? Stoudemire, for sure. Randolph, no.

    Anthony Randolph was the Knicks big get in the David Lee trade — a 6’10” guy who can run the floor and play anywhere from the three to the five. A guy whose athleticism was bottled up by Don Nelson but was to be unleashed by Mike D’Antoni. He was going to explode past his…

  3. Timofey Mozgov, your New York Knicks starting center. Could happen.

    Oct 11, 2010, 4:46 PM EST

    Mozgov_layup

    Russian import Timofey Mozgov could be the starting center when the New York Knicks open the season in Toronto in two weeks. No, we’re not kidding. He will start for sure Monday against the Celtics — which would have been a good test if Shaq played, however he is resting — but if he keeps…

  4. Prepare for apocalypse, Mike D’Antoni is dipping into the bench

    Oct 9, 2010, 6:00 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni

    Mike D’Antoni hates the bench. That’s the been the common assessment  for years, as D’Antoni’s rotations have almost never extended past eight. Not in Phoenix, not in New York. He trusts veterans and that’s about it. It has been a constant refrain of criticism as D’Antoni’s teams have been unable to hold leads after establishing…

  5. David Stern does not want to see what happened to the Knicks happen to anyone else

    Oct 8, 2010, 4:59 PM EST

    This season, there is hope around the New York Knicks. Amar’e Stoudemire, Raymond Felton, Anthony Randolph all running Mike D’Antoni’s exciting system. That should be fun. It hasn’t been that way for years around Madison Square Garden. Bad decisions to take on (or give out) huge contracts to players past their prime (or without a…

  6. David Stern takes blame for Knicks summer Isiah Thomas blunder

    Oct 7, 2010, 7:31 PM EST

    Image (1) davidstern-ap-thumb-250x315-5594.jpg for post 89

    The Knicks mistake this summer in trying to bring back Isiah Thomas as a consultant was really two mistakes in one. NBA Commissioner David Stern admitted he caused one of them. You remember the incident this summer, right? The Knicks ownership — over the head of GM Donnie Walsh who almost quit over it —…

  7. Amar’e Stoudemire may do another magazine cover… but clothed this time

    Oct 7, 2010, 3:58 PM EST

    stoudemire-pooljump

    Few images get seared into your brain — whether you want it to or not — quite like Amar’e Stoudemire’s picture for the ESPN The Magazine’s body issue. I think Trey Kerby at The Score said everything I wanted to. And a few things I didn’t want to. But, you know, his knee looks good,…

  8. Report: Nuggets find market drying up for huge Carmelo Anthony deal

    Oct 6, 2010, 10:40 PM EST

    The Nuggets are asking a lot for Carmelo Anthony in a trade: good young players and draft picks for the future, enough established talent to keep them in the playoffs now, plus cap relief that keeps them below the luxury tax. And a date with Scarlett Johansson. And a DeLorean that can travel through time.…

  9. Mike D'Antoni's vote of confidence in Timofey Mozgov's basketball ability, if not his language skills

    Oct 6, 2010, 3:11 PM EST

    All basketball coaches play favorites, but Mike D’Antoni — no stranger to wearing his opinion on his press scrum sleeve — is a bit more forthcoming with that information than most NBA types. It’s still something short of explicit, but deciphering Pringles’ player-specific quotes doesn’t take much imagination. Plenty of this year’s Knicks have D’Antoni…

  10. See Heat vs. Knicks in 3D (without going to the game)

    Oct 6, 2010, 12:12 PM EST

    A year ago I was at a fundraiser event where Panasonic was a major sponsor, and as part of the event they set up a special tent to show off what 3D television really meant. As part of the demonstration, they showed a couple minutes of a Beijing Olympics soccer game shot in 3D (NBC…

  11. Rudy Fernandez to the Knicks, not totally dead yet

    Oct 6, 2010, 10:56 AM EST

    Rudy Fernandez went out Tuesday night and reminded everyone he can play — 15 points on 5 of 6 from three, plus five rebounds and three assists. Happy or not in Portland, he can contribute. Word comes out of New York that the Knicks still have some interest in Fernandez, according to Frank Isola of…

  12. No pressure kid: Stoudemire compares Gallinari to Nowitzki

    Oct 5, 2010, 1:22 PM EST

    Amar’e Stoudemire likes what he sees in Danilo Gallinari — so much so that he paid him maybe the ultimate compliment for a European big man. And also out a ton of pressure on him. From the twitter account of Alan Hahn of Newsday: “He reminds me of Dirk [Nowitzki] a lot…He’s at that same…

  13. Carmelo Anthony: "I never said I want to play for the Nets."

    Oct 4, 2010, 9:43 AM EST

    An exchange yesterday from training camp gives us a little insight into Carmelo Anthony’s thinking. And how it’s really about moving where he wants, not winning. Anthony’s people (never Anthony publicly) have been pushing for a trade to get him out of Denver and he said there is a 50/50 chance he is gone before…

  14. Terror alert up in Europe but will not slow NBA tour

    Oct 3, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    There is enough chatter out there in the intelligence community that the United States warned travelers about potential terrorist attacks in Europe today. Right as the Lakers, Knicks and Timberwolves are touring that continent of a preseason, game globalization trip. The Lakers and Timberwolves are in London, the Knicks in Milan. The Lakers will travel…

  15. Knicks Donnie Walsh says he wants Chris Mullin to replace him

    Oct 1, 2010, 1:22 PM EST

    Donnie Walsh has spent three years now pulling the Knicks franchise out of the hole it had dug itself. The hole that collapsed and trapped them. Even the notoriously impatient New York media got it and Walsh got a largely free pass because he was doing ugly work that had to be done. Now they…

  16. Ricky Rubio’s parents turn down meeting with Timberwolves

    Oct 1, 2010, 9:55 AM EST

    The Minnesota Timberwolves are in Europe, too. Think of them like the first opening act at a huge stadium concert, the band that comes on before the Knicks and then the Lakers take the stage. The band you kind of hear while you are still tailgating in the parking lot. But the Timberwolves have a…

  17. Report: Knicks have deal for pick to get back in Melo sweepstakes

    Sep 30, 2010, 3:09 PM EST

    Right now there is a break in the Carmelo Anthony trade show. It’s not over, it’s more like someone hit pause on the DVR to go get some Triscuits but pretty soon everyone will sit back down, get comfortable and start the show again. And when they do the Knicks want in. According to Chris…

  18. Knicks deny tampering in Carmelo Anthony trade talks

    Sep 29, 2010, 9:30 AM EST

    A four-team trade deal that would have moved Carmelo Anthony to the New Jersey Nets fell apart, apparently for a few reasons. One of them was the Nuggets trying to add players to the deal to shed payroll and get below the luxury tax threshold. But rumors surfaced that the Nuggets thought the Knicks might…

  19. Eddy Curry already out four to six weeks. Mike D'Antoni not stunned.

    Sep 27, 2010, 5:54 PM EST

    UPDATE 5:54 PM: It took three days into camp for the Knicks to say Curry would be out four-to-six weeks with injured hamstrings. He will not be joining the team in Europe for preseason games. A whole continent is depressed. What is the under/over for games Curry plays in this season? Three? 11:14 am: Eddy…

  20. Tony Parker to Spurs: "I want to stay here."

    Sep 27, 2010, 1:29 PM EST

    Tony Parker has been rumored to want to play for the Knicks. Well, who hasn’t. There has been everything but Brett Favre to the Knicks rumors (and would that one shock you?). But the Tony Parker ones make some sense — he’s be a great fit in the Mike D’Antoni system, he’s in the last…

  21. Anthony, Nuggets have to play ball together one way or another

    Sep 26, 2010, 10:35 AM EST

    The rumors just keep flying around a four-team trade that would bring Carmelo Anthony to New York seems to be slipping away. Why? Because Denver and Anthony can’t seem to play nice together. So it looks more and more like they will have to play together on the court to start the season in what…

  22. Want to see the Heat at Madison Square Garden? It's gonna cost you.

    Sep 24, 2010, 10:25 AM EST

    Welcome to the world of variable ticket pricing. You know, the idea taking hold in the NBA (and sports generally) that tickets to high profile games will cost more than not-in-demand games. Basic supply and demand economics. So how much more? How about nearly four times as much. Which is more than “variable pricing” and…

  23. Amar'e Stoudemire says Carmelo Anthony would be a good teammate. You think?

    Sep 24, 2010, 9:38 AM EST

    Through all of the talk and controversy around Carmelo Anthony trying to force his way out of Denver, one thing has never really been in question  — Melo can ball. He will make your team better (as long as you didn’t give up too much to get him). But just to make sure you know,…

  24. Donnie Walsh's Catch-22

    Sep 23, 2010, 4:36 PM EST

    Knicks decision maker Donnie Walsh would love to get in on the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, but he doesn’t have all the chips needed to get a seat at the table. He doesn’t have a first round draft pick (well, not until 2014 anyway, and nobody wants to wait that long). A pick like the one…

  25. Carmelo Anthony on the rumors: "i just want to play ball"

    Sep 22, 2010, 12:45 PM EST

    Whatever is swirling through the media, through back channels and into NBA front offices, Carmelo Anthony is going to come out at Nuggets camp and say all the right things. He’s got that down. He’ll do it to microphones next week, but he went to twitter and made these comments Wednesday night: Everyone has there…
