  1. Report: Stoudemire wants to open a Hebrew school

    Nov 28, 2011, 5:49 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire

    We take a step back from today’s “what should my team do on Dec. 9” discussions to talk in Hebrew. Or at least about Hebrew. Knicks star Amare Stoudemire is interested in opening up Hebrew school in New York, according to the New York Daily News. A source close to the New York Knick tells…

  2. Politicians grandstanding on NBA lockout starts Wednesday

    Nov 22, 2011, 8:31 PM EST

    It was only a matter of time before a politician somewhere (we like to imagine in a smoke-filled backroom) said “how can I gain some points with my constituents around the NBA lockout?” Meet New York State Senator Malcolm A. Smith — who represents a rather gerrymandered looking district that includes parts of Hollis, Queens…

  3. Carmelo Anthony looks for place to host NYC charity game

    Tommy Hilfiger Womens - Backstage - Spring 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

    Well, it looks like we’ll have more time for All-Star filled charity games and international exhibition tours. So Carmelo Anthony is looking to bring a big one to the New York area… he just needs to find a venue, reports the New York Post. The problem is that Madison Square Garden is out (home to…

  4. How about Goodman vs. Rucker Park showdown? It’s on.

    Sep 2, 2011, 1:59 PM EST

    rucker-park

    This could be better than any of the summer pro-am league showdowns this summer (and beating Goodman vs. Drew and Goodman vs. Melo will be hard): How about Washington D.C.’s Goodman League vs. ECB Rucker Parck? The best of New York now in the mix. It is set for Oct. 1, according to the official…

  5. NBA flagship store to reopen in New York City

    Aug 19, 2011, 11:25 AM EST

    NBAstore

    The NBA store of Fifth Avenue in New York was a kind of mecca — it contained just about everything NBA (and Adidas, which runs the store). Plus it hosted a number of player events. It was sort of a shrine to hoops. But it closed in February when its lease was bought out in…

  6. Jimmer Fredette’s family wants the Knicks to draft him

    Mar 15, 2011, 11:11 PM EST

    Jimmer Fredette

    Jimmer Fredette is one of the must-watch players in the NCAA tournament. Maybe the must-watch player. We can get into how he will fit in the NBA, but he is a special college player who is averaging 28.5 points per game and is hitting 40.4% from three. And all that while he uses a ridiculous…

  7. PBT Tuesday Morning One Liners

    West Team's Kevin Durant of Oklahoma Cit

    If you are hungry and in New York City and you go to the Olive Garden… you really need an intervention. That is a culinary sin. I’m looking at you, Gordon Hayward. If the Kings do move to Anaheim, the contract specifies that they be the “Anaheim…” Kings or Royals or Waves or whatever. The…

  8. Knicks may not think it’s a rivalry, but Nets do and they won round one

    Feb 23, 2011, 12:29 PM EST

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    Mention a Knicks/Nets rivalry to a Knicks fan and they laugh a dismissive little laugh. There is no rivalry — the Knicks play in Manhattan and the Nets are still in Newark, the swamps of Jersey. Even when they come to Brooklyn, that’s not on the island. The  Knicks dismiss the rivalry out of hand.…

  9. 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…

  10. Video shot of the weekend: Kevin Durant game winner

    Jan 24, 2011, 8:13 AM EST

    Kevin Durant

    In case you missed it, Kevin Durant hit one of those superstar shots Saturday night — a game winning three from pretty much the first row of seats to beat the Knicks. Danilo Gallinari defended this well, he didn’t give Durant a lane to drive, and while maybe he could have had a hand more…

  11. David Stern doesn’t like people booing LeBron

    Jan 7, 2011, 1:15 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Every time he steps on the court in a road arena, LeBron James hears boos. That was to be expected in Cleveland. Everyone knew it was coming in cities such as New York where the fans wanted him and he chose to take his talents elsewhere. But it has become more than that — James…

  12. New York tabloids welcome LeBron with all the love you’d expect

    Dec 17, 2010, 12:00 PM EST

    Daily_News_LeBron

    Maybe the only thing worse than a woman scorned is a New York tabloid headline writer scorned. And make no mistake, New York feels scorned by LeBron. They thought he could choose nowhere else because, hey — they’re New York. It’s inconceivable you would choose warm weather and other superstars over New York. Tonight LeBron…

  13. Carmelo Anthony says nice things about Denver, but does that change anything?

    Denver has a good basketball team right now. We were reminded of that last night when they hung with the Lakers in a scoring fest, got good play off the bench (I could swear I saw Al Harrington on help defense) and played enough defense late to hand Los Angeles its first loss. The capacity…

  14. Marcin Gortat thinks New York City is a “dirty, dirty place.” And it smells bad.

    Nov 2, 2010, 11:30 AM EST

    200312617-001

    New York City isn’t for everyone. For one thing, it has way too many Yankee fans in it for my taste. And you have to like the true urban experience. Marcin Gortat and the Magic are in Orlando for a game tonight at MSG against the Knicks. Somehow when people visit NYC they always get…
