In the last 18 months, the Knicks have added Amar'e Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler to their roster. Given the results they generated last season and the hype they generated during the truncated run-up to this season, you wouldn't imagine that the Knicks would be looking for another savior quite so quickly. And yet, 13 games into this season with a 6-7 record, that's just the situation the Knicks find themselves in. The savior in question isn't from central casting. Baron Davis, better known for indifferent effort and an expanded waistline in recent seasons, is seen as the man who can save this Knicks season once his back is well enough to let him get back on the court. Davis is getting closer to a full practice and there's some talk that he could get on the court for a game during next week's road trip -- something that would spark celebrations among Knicks fans to rival anything we've seen since the 1973 title. With a disjointed offense a...

D'Antoni: Knicks G Davis on schedule for return

New York Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni believes that injured guard Baron Davis remains on schedule to return to action. As for a precise date, well, D'Antoni isn't ready to go that far. "I don't know about this week, but next week, yes," D'Antoni told the New York Post. "He's still on schedule. If that's the third of February, the fifth,...

Baron Davis may be ready by late January

What’s on Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni’s mind? Not only the return from injury of Carmelo Anthony, but also the looming Knicks debut of Baron Davis.

Will 'Melo be back to face Magic?

The New York Knicks are taking it day by day, and minute by minute, with superstar Carmelo Anthony's injured ankle. But getting him back on the court quickly may be wishful thinking.

Baron could return to Knicks lineup by end of month

The Knicks won’t have Baron Davis for today’s matinee against the Magic at the Garden, and likely will be without Carmelo Anthony, as well. But, at least in Davis’ case, his long-awaited debut continues to creep ever closer, with Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni saying yesterday Davis remains...

Magic head to NYC to face hobbled Knicks

It's always unfortunate when a Broadway show is without one of its major cast members.

Knicks a losing team with Melo

It’s not complicated. Since the celebrated Carmelo Anthony trade 11 months ago, the New York Knicks have won 20 regular-season games and lost 21. That doesn’t sound so great, but it gets worse: The Knicks also lost four straight in the playoffs, winning none. The Knicks didn’t get Chris Paul. Many fans and observers believed getting Melo put the Knicks closer to obtaining...

Knicks lose to Magic in Carmelo's return

After loss, D’Antoni says Knicks in ‘crisis’

The only solace to another horrific Garden evening is maybe Steve Nash will be doing this for the Knicks next season and not against them. Sore-wristed Carmelo Anthony could not have been more awful and Amar’e Stoudemire wasn’t much better. Anthony did not speak afterward. A team official...

Thank You Garden of Dreams

  This is what you get for $850 million dollars???  Madison Square Garden spent $850 million dollars to renovate the joint, and after taking a leak to drain myself of the $10 Blue Moon's they now serve, I get a broken soap dispenser and a sink with no running water.  It was bad enough that I had to watch the Knicks lose to the Phoenix Suns, who had dropped five straight before...
