New York Knicks

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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,…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. Carmelo Anthony renews push for trade to New York or Chicago; Denver in no rush

    Sep 22, 2010, 8:22 AM EST

    If you’re wondering why so many — and at times conflicting — rumors are coming out about the Carmelo Anthony trade situation in the last few days, here’s your answer. Anthony and his CAA team (led by agent Leon Rose) have stepped up to pressure a move before training camp starts, according to ESPN. And…

  19. Who is the last Knick to camp? Eddy Curry. Shocking, we know.

    Sep 21, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    It’s a new season, a new era of optimism for Knicks fans (unless that optimism included getting Carmelo Anthony, but work with us here). Things are different, everyone is already at the Knicks training facility putting in work. Well, everyone but Eddy Curry, according Alan Hahn at Newsday. I heard yesterday that Curry was still…

  20. Winderman: Jared Jeffries salary dump reason Knicks are out of Anthony sweepstakes

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:31 AM EST

    It is one thing to mortgage your future after the fact. The Heat did that with the Cavaliers and Raptors in the sign-and-trades utilized to increase the payouts to LeBron James and Chris Bosh. For most of the next decade, draft night will remain rumor in South Florida. It is, however, another thing to mortgage…

  21. One team Carmelo Anthony won't be traded to: The Knicks

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:10 AM EST

    The fast moving efforts to trade Carmelo Anthony — which now looks like it could happen even before training camps open — means the Knicks need to move on to Plan C. Or maybe it’s Plan Y at this point. They have had a lot of dashed plans. Once the Knicks lost out on the…

  22. Battle Royale: The three worst owners in the NBA

    Sep 18, 2010, 5:30 PM EST

    Battle Royale takes a topic and seeks to settle the pecking order of a given subject. Today’s topic? Who’s the worst owner in the NBA? You’re only as good as your owner. After all, you can have great chefs but if your owner doesn’t know how to keep the lights on you’re going to get…

  23. Pro Basketball Crosstalk: Of market size and parity

    Sep 16, 2010, 3:28 PM EST

    Let’s face it: there are some topics in basketball that are best tackled by having two writers talk past each other at gradually increasing volumes. We’re not making any progress unless we’re yelling our way through the real issues, and that’s precisely what John Krolik and I hope to accomplish in Pro Basketball Crosstalk. In…

  24. Rudy Fernandez says its time to get back to work. Doesn't say where.

    Sep 15, 2010, 1:44 PM EST

    Rudy Fernandez played well for Spain at the World Championships — 15.5 points per game on 62 percent shooting, 42 percent shooting from three — but it was still disappointing. Spain went in a co-favorite and left without any medal. You can debate amongst yourself how much of the blame for that falls to Fernandez,…

  25. The Knicks bench could win them some games. No, I mean it.

    Sep 13, 2010, 7:20 PM EST

    While you were busy talking about how the Knicks missed out on LeBron and Wade but got that Amare guy and he’s not that bad, you missed something. Donnie Walsh put together a pretty deep team. Not deep with name guys in the Lakers sense, but similar in one way — deep with guys who…
