Found November 20, 2013 on Holdout Sports:
New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire is known for not being a great defender, but he may have hit a new low during Tuesday night's game against Detroit during one defensive sequence where he completely lost track of the basketball.It happened during the third quarter as Stoudemire was playing zone defense and Pistons forward Josh Smith had the ball. Smith faked the jump shot and passed to Peyton Siva while Stoudemire turned to look for a rebound on Smith's "shot". As a result, Siva was able to drive to the basket while Stoudemire had his back turned. It shouldn't be a surprise that the Pistons beat the Knicks 92-86, dropping the Knicks to a 3-7 record to start the season.  At this point, you have to start wondering how the Knicks will turn things around.  H/T LBS.

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.

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...

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...
