The Knicks are turning into the Jets with more talent. According to the New York Daily News Shumpert had a secret knee surgery in July that the Knicks didn’t know about.  That surgery could be affecting his trade value, and his current lack of playing time. Iman Shumpert had a second left knee operation over the summer, the Daily News has learned, and it is unclear if the unreported surgery could affect his trade value — with the desperate Knicks trying to package Shumpert in a number of proposed deals, including one for Boston’s Rajon Rondo. According to a source, Shumpert had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee last July that the Knicks never reported. In September, the Daily News reported that Amar’e Stoudemire had knee surgery over the summer, which the Knicks also elected not to make public. This goes in hand with the Knicks wanting to trade Amare’ Stoudemire, and acquire Rajon Rondo.  What you have is the New York Knicks trying to trade everything and everyone to appease Car...

NBA scout on Jason Kidd: He doesn't do anything

NBA Scout: “Jason Kidd doesn’t do anything” The Brooklyn Nets are off to a terrible start this season under first year coach, Jason Kidd. But that hardly tells the story as fellow NBA observers are noticing the lack of coaching done by Kidd.

Another ‘terrible’ game from J.R. Smith

The calendar says November. But it certainly looks like last May for the Knicks J.R. Smith. Smith, in his fourth game back from an NBA-imposed five game suspension after a rehab for offseason knee surgery, shot Saturday as if the Hawks were the smothering Pacers of last season’s playoffs. When Smith finally exited with 3:41 left in the Hawks 110-90 wipeout victory, he wore a...

Carmelo Disappointed In Knicks' Effort

Carmelo Anthony expressed his frustration as the New York Knicks lost 110-90 to the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday, which was their fifth straight loss at Madison Square Garden.

Melo and His Mental Game

By Stephanie S Carmelo Anthony is without a doubt the top player on the Knicks. Every team has a superstar: Melo is that guy. Being a 6-time All Star and a 3-time Olympic medalist, it seems inevitable that he would be a leader on the court as well as off; a versatile player who is good on either side of the ball and can pick up a team when they’re down. To be such a catalyst requires...

Game Recap: Hawks Hand Knicks Fifth Home Loss This Season

The Atlanta Hawks beat the New York Knicks by a final score of 110-90 at Madison Square Garden. The game was relatively close until the fourth quarter, but the Knicks continued to let the Hawks penetrate the lane for easy finishes at the basket. When they weren’t finishing at the rim,  the Hawks jump shooters frequently found themselves open thanks in part to the Knicks lack...

Offense, Not Defense, May Be the Knicks’ Biggest Concern

Ever since the Knicks elevated Mike Woodson to head coach after the March 2012 dismissal of Mike D’Antoni, Woodson has preached defense, toughness and rebounding. These are terms that resonate with Knicks fans, who cherished the gritty success of the teams led by Pat Riley and Jeff Van Gundy. After a 110-90 home loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday, Woodson and the Knicks returned...

Report: Kings Have Interest In Iman Shumpert

I’m not necessarily sure how true this rumor can be, seeing as the Sacramento Kings just drafted Ben McLemore to play shooting guard. With J.R. Smith and Tim Hardaway Jr. at shooting guard, the Knicks believe the time is now to cash in on Iman Shumpert’s value. Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting that the Kings indeed have interest in Shumpert. More and more folks around the league...

After an obliterating loss Sunday, the Knicks came out of ATL with a 95-91 win. There was no room for celebration, as the Knicks headed home to face the Houston Rockets. A tough call at the...

Mike Woodson Might Send J.R. Smith to the Bench

I guess when you’re only shooting 22% on the season, you’re subject to getting sent back to the bench. Things aren’t great for the Knicks right now. After losing Tyson Chandler, the team has struggled to stop anybody and has suffered blowout loses to the Atlanta Hawks and San Antonio Spurs. Apparently, J.R. Smith might be the one who is taking the blame. 22% on the season and...

Open Thread Night: Fanatics Live Blog Knicks v. Detroit Pistons (7:30pm)

  Chris Smith is gone to the D-League, but J.R. Smith may still want to defend his brother's honor against Pistons' point guard Brandon Jennings.  It is unlikely that the mercurial, and often immature J.R. Smith will say anything beyond a tweet or a twerp to Jennings, after he was hit with a $25,000 fine for hostilely and inappropriately using twitter to respond to...
