Raymond Felton

  1. Five early season NBA trends to be thankful for

    Nov 22, 2012, 4:29 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Shane Battier

    We are 10 games or so into the NBA season and one thing is clear — this is fun. Not everything is fitting neatly into the preseason prediction boxes and that is the best part of being a sports fan. We at PBT are thankful for a lot of things. All of you who read…

  2. Woodson not worried at all that ‘Melo, Amare can coexist

    Nov 21, 2012, 2:18 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks are 8-1 to start the season and it isn’t a fluke — this is a team that plays legitimately good defense and with Carmelo Anthony at the four (and Raymond Felton playing smartly at the point). But there remains a big question looming about this team — what happens when Amare Stoudemire returns?…

  3. Jeremy Lin thinks he will still be an All-Star. Someday.

    Nov 21, 2012, 8:42 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Based on his play so far this season, Jeremy Lin doesn’t deserve to be an All-Star. He’s been below replacement level. Frankly, he’s looked a young point guard learning how to play in the league and finding his game. He’ll improve, but that’s a process. This year, if the fans don’t vote in Chris Paul…

  4. Raymond Felton worked out this summer… for the first time

    Nov 19, 2012, 10:16 AM EST

    Raymond Felton

    I don’t think we’d use the words “Raymond Felton” and “chiseled” in the same sentence. But we can safely say that this year with the Knicks he is in considerably better shape than following the lockout last year in Portland. He admitted he wasn’t in shape for that season, and it showed on the court.…

  5. The Knicks are legit. If they can keep this up is another question.

    Nov 16, 2012, 1:25 PM EST

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The Knicks are 6-0, the last undefeated team in the NBA — and it’s not a fluke. They are defending better than anyone in the league, giving up just 93.6 points per 100 possessions, via Hoopdata. (Anyone who says they just started defending this year wasn’t watching last year.) Their offense with Carmelo Anthony at…

  6. Three Stars of the Night: Two Knicks’ guards… and LeBron.

    Nov 16, 2012, 2:48 AM EST

    Jason Kidd, Raymond Felton

    We should just name one of these stars after LeBron at this point. Aside that, the story of the night was the Knicks dramatic comeback win, so the two guards that led that charge are getting stars tonight. Third Star: Jason Kidd (14 points, 4-of-6 from three) His line isn’t that impressive, but it’s really…

  7. New York 104, San Antonio 100: Yes, the Knicks are for real.

    Nov 16, 2012, 12:09 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    You know how announcers talk about Shane Battier? How they say he “does things that don’t show up in the boxscore” and how his value can’t really be defined by common statistics? Well, no one ever really says those things about Carmelo Anthony. Ever. And that’s fair. Anthony’s entire career has been defined by the…

  8. Jamal Crawford says he ‘deserved to get booed’ by Blazers fans

    Nov 9, 2012, 12:17 PM EST

    jamal-crawford-blazers-clippers

    Saying last season was a disappointment in Portland is like calling the Titanic a minor boating accident. There isn’t enough hyperbole there to do it justice. The Blazers were a talented team a season ago, but dealt with all kinds of locker room trouble that resulted in a complete dismantling of the club that began…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs, Knicks remain undefeated

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:42 AM EST

    Rasheed Wallace, Tyson Chandler

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while you were finding out where Superman’s home planet Krypton actually was…. Spurs 101, Pacers 79: Don’t look now, but the Spurs are defending again this year. Which is how they crushed the Pacers. We broke it down.…

  10. Knicks continue impressive start by taking care of Sixers

    Nov 4, 2012, 3:30 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Thaddeus Young

    A tip-off time of 12 noon in the NBA can often be trouble for both teams. It’s a quirk in the schedule for a league whose players are used to gearing up to perform at their peak sometime after 7:30 p.m., so the broken routine can result in some rough basketball during those early afternoon…

  11. Fun matchups for Friday night: LeBron vs. ‘Melo at power forward

    Nov 1, 2012, 1:58 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James

    We’ve pretty much worn out the discussion of the Miami Heat going small with LeBron James at the four. The much more interesting discussion of late has been injuries forcing Mike Woodson to take the Knicks in a direction they were reluctant to go — small with Carmelo Anthony at the four. Now, what do…

  12. A guide for which teams to watch

    Oct 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Our ideas of fun may be completely different. Personally, I like to pretend I’m playing Supermarket Sweep in the grocery store, but you may like going out on “dates” or “talking to actual people.” With that said, I can’t in good faith tell you which teams will be fun this year. That’s a decision for…

  13. Deron Williams says Knicks better with Felton than Lin

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:24 PM EST

    Nets Williams drives to the basket past Knicks Lin during their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Jeremy Lin is gone from New York, which led to a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth among some Knicks fans. He was their savior midseason, the guy who helped turn the team’s season around, a guy the fans related to and loved and now he is in Houston. Deron Williams thinks the Knicks…

  14. Tyson Chandler isn’t buying ‘Melo scoring less this season

    Oct 26, 2012, 1:20 PM EST

    Alan Anderson, Carmelo Anthony,

    Carmelo Anthony is not just going to be a scorer anymore. He’s changed. It’s about team and trust and distributing the rock. That’s what he’s saying, anyway. “I’m done trying to score 35, 40 points to win the basketball game. I don’t want that role anymore” You buying that? Tyson Chandler isn’t. From the Wall…

  15. The one where Mike Woodson let Zaza Pachulia skip practice for a “hot date”

    Oct 26, 2012, 12:25 PM EST

    zaza pachulia

    Who says Mike Woodson is an old-school, hard-ass coach. You work hard for him, you get some perks. Woodson, the current Knicks coach, was on “The Game 365” on MSG Network, and the show was such a snoozer that just about everybody tuned out. Everybody but the folks at nba247365.com, and they were rewarded with…

  16. Stoudemire has ruptured cyst in knee, to miss start of Knicks’ season

    Oct 21, 2012, 1:14 PM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day Basketball

    This is not an ideal start to the season in Manhattan. Amar’e Stoudemire will miss the Knicks regular season opener against the Nets, likely followed by another game or two, as he recovers from a minor knee problem. Al Iannazzone, who covers the Knicks for Newsday, broke the story. Amare Stoudemire went home this morning…

  19. Even in preseason, risks of small ball begin to show

    Oct 15, 2012, 12:04 PM EST

    Matt Barnes, Ray Allen

    In Shanghai we saw it — Chris Bosh and the assortment of other Heat centers could do little to slow the bigger, stronger DeAndre Jordan short of fouling him. With Chris Paul feeding him the rock, Jordan shot 8-for-8 in a Clippers win. In Hartford we saw it — the Knicks went to the Raymond…

  20. NBA season preview: Portland Trail Blazers

    Oct 12, 2012, 8:42 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers

    Last season: Nothing will push you toward rebuilding like disappointment, and their 28-38 record was that. This was a 48 win team a couple seasons ago, but last season a team that should be playing fast and pressuring teams was average in pace and threatening nobody. Point guard Raymond Felton took the blame from fans…

  21. Chandler didn’t think Lin ran the Knicks offense correctly

    Oct 8, 2012, 10:10 AM EST

    Knicks Media Day Basketball

    The few weeks of “Linsanity” last year, the Knicks offense was really not all that great. The Knicks were winning because they were playing good defense and getting enough points with Jeremy Lin running a pick-and-roll heavy offense with Tyson Chandler and shooters like Steve Novak around the floor. Chandler likes the Knicks point guards…

  23. Spin out of Knicks media day: Raymond Felton is in shape

    Oct 1, 2012, 2:38 PM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day Basketball

    There are a couple of reasons that teams hire full time media relations people and now hire their own reporters for their team Web sites, and driving traffic to those sites (so they can appease sponsors/advertisers) is just a part of it. The bigger goal is to spin the narrative the way they want. It’s…

  24. Walt Frazier says Knicks need ‘Melo to play like LeBron

    Sep 20, 2012, 11:53 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    The Knicks are going to be one of the more interesting stories in the NBA this season, and not just because they are in New York. As our own Matt Moore previewed, they have talent and they are going to be good, but the question remains about how well all the puzzle pieces fit together.…

  25. NBA Season Preview: New York Knicks

    Sep 18, 2012, 12:05 PM EST

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates after a three point shot late in the fourth quarter of the Knicks' win in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series against the Heat in New York

    This week begins PBT’s team-by-team season preview, going through all 30 squads. We are starting in the deep Atlantic Division that could well send four teams to the playoffs, and we will move West from there. Next up, your New York Knicks. Last season: Good God, where to begin. Uh, they beat Boston in their first…
