CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Charlotte Bobcats couldn't even beat a Knicks team resting most of its starters, finishing with the worst winning percentage in NBA history after a 104-84 loss on Thursday night.
J.R. Smith scored 22 points for the Knicks, who pulled away in the second half to clinch the Eastern Conference's No. 7 seed and a first-round playoff matchup against No. 2 Miami beginning Saturday.
Gerald Henderson had 21 points for the Bobcats, whose 23rd consecutive loss left them with a winning percentage of .106 (7-59) in the lockout-shortened season. The record was set 39 years ago, when the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers finished 9-73 (.110) in a full regular season.
The Knicks held out Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and Baron Davis, while Amare Stoudemire had 21 points over two quarters.

Amar’e Stoudemire wanted to finish off the regular in strong fashion, and he did just that in the form of one monster poster. Tyrus Thomas was the unfortunately on the receiving end of the dunk and he would have been better suited to just get out of the way.

Look at it this way, Bobcats fans: at least “.106 winning percentage” doesn’t make for a very catchy derisive chant. Not only is Charlotte officially the worst team ever, with 23 losses to close out the season (23—the Irony-Meter’s on 10), one month-old Bobcats fans everywhere are wondering if the Bobcats will ever win a [...]

When Tyson Chandler was a member of the Chicago Bulls, he was a force on the defensive end. Now with the New York Knicks, he’s had a strong season in which he seriously warrants NBA Defensive Player of the Year consideration.
Chandler is one of the more unselfish players in the league, and somewhat of an anomaly within the league. The statistical case for him to be Def POY is...

New York basketball is alive once again. Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Tyson Chandler lead a Knicks squad that feels like they have something to prove. Under interim head coach Mike Woodson, the Knicks are 18-6, and playing inspired on both ends of the floor. After a dismal 18-24 start to the season, Mike D'Antoni was ousted and Woodson stepped in. New York is...
Whenever Isiah Thomas is spotted with an NBA team member, particularly a member of the New York Knicks, fans should get a little creeped out. I know I do. Thomas has turned anything he’s touched in basketball, since retiring from the Pistons, to complete mush. Here he is, having lunch with former Indiana University alumni, [...]
Boy am I stoked for this game. I've been wanting to play the Heat in a meaningful series for quite sometime now. Nothing would bring me more satisfaction then to beat them and that cry-baby Lebron.
