Knicks Journal :
Rasheed Wallace's short Knicks tenure since coming out of retirement to join the team has been quite the interesting one so far.Besides claiming to have the bark behind the famous phrase, "Ball Don't Lie," the big man has gone from sitting out while he got himself into game shape, earning that coveted fifteenth roster spot, rising up from the Brian Scalabrine of the Knicks to finally emerging as the same influential player he's been known to be over his career. Though he began to thrive as a key player in New York's rotation, Wallace has sat out with an injury that's caused him to miss almost twenty games. There's no concrete word as to when he'll eventually return.There's no denying that even as he sits out, the fiery forward's presence is still felt by his teammates. According to other players on the squad, Wallace is constantly speaking up and stays in everyone's ear by providing worthwhile basketball insight. His relationship wit...

Though Jason Kidd was simply "resting" according to the Knicks officials as he sat out for most of the Knicks' 106-104 victory over the Hawks on Sunday evening, there's already talk of allowing Kidd to sit out for extended periods of time, if that's in fact what it takes for him to feel comfortable come playoff time.Without the likes of Raymond Felton and Iman...

Knicks have been through a myriad of player injuries this season, some minor and some serious. Tonight against the Orlando Magic the Knicks will be without the services of Jason Kidd. Kidd has been battling some back soreness and spasms. He will sit out tonight and in my opinion he should take...
The entire Knicks team and coaches paid a visit to Newtown, CT on Tuesday afternoon to spend a day showing their support to the grieving community. The Knicks hung out and played arcade games with kids and their families and surely put a smile on the appreciative fans:
Not many teams in NBA history can say that they have a 6-time All-Star who is currently the second or sometimes third man off their bench. The Knicks are currently blessed with the ability to start Carmelo Anthony at the power forward position, only to have a BETTER power forward come in off the bench and move Melo back to his natural small forward position. This man we speak...
As we approach the All-Star break, let’s take a look back at the top highlights from 2012-13, a season we can all agree has been some crazy ride:
2-0 vs. Miami:
The Knicks announced loud and clear that they are the biggest threat to the Heat with two blow-out victories over the defending champs. Their 104-84 and 112-92 wins, the latter minus Carmelo Anthony, is the biggest reason...

Magic vs. Knicks:MSG 730pm
Even with the recent struggle the Knicks have gone through, they will head into February in much better shape than recent history as they sit second in the Eastern Conference and atop the Atlantic Division. Tonight will be a good test for the Knicks against an over-matched Magic team to start turning around some things they have...
Tweet Simply put, Carmelo Anthony was in the zone Sunday night against the Atlanta Hawks. Anthony scored 42 points on 15-28 from the field, including a Knicks-record nine three-pointers.

Despite all the physical trauma Amar’e Stoudemire has endured throughout his 10 year career, he is still finding a way to produce at a high, All-Star caliber level. From season-ending knee injuries, to a detached retina, to back spasms and the infamous fire extinguisher incident, many NBA scouts and experts assumed that at this point, Amar’e should be a shell...
From a young age, Allonzo Trier has enjoyed national spotlight. In elementary school, he shot a PowerAde commercial with Carmelo Anthony, and that same year, had a feature story on him in the New York Times. He had become a nationally known name in basketball circles, because of the potential for the player that he might become. Years later, that potential is coming to fruition...
The Magic got to spend three days in the New York area and had two chances to get big wins against two good opponents. Each game, Orlando did a lot of things right and had a fantastic opportunity to score the two wins.
Unfortunately, there just was not enough of the good for 48 minutes and the team's depth and inability to keep things going with the bench players in. And...
