Knicks Player Season Reviews: Steve Novak

Steve Novak is a specialist. He shouldn’t have to apologize for this. There are a lot of NBA players and athletes in all sports that are specialists. In baseball, you might have a guy who can’t really hit but is fast as hell and can be used as a pinch runner. If a certain situation presents itself, a pinch runner could change a game. /Thinks about Dave Roberts in 2004, considers...

Does Pablo Prigioni Return to the Knicks?

By Chris Connolly With the recent retirement of Jason Kidd it seems like a good time to address the future of Pablo Prigioni with the New York Knicks. If it wasn’t obvious that the Knicks needed to retain Prigioni before, it has become even more evident now. Prigioni emerged as a bright spot for the Knicks this season after coming over from Europe. Credit Glen Grunwald and his...

With the possible exit of Pablo Prigioni and no other point guards on the team, the Knicks will be in the market for a 2nd and 3rd point guard to contribute to this teams...

Carmelo Anthony Still Leads NBA in Playoff Shots, Despite Being Eliminated Weeks Ago

This doesn’t really help to change the whole “Carmelo shoots too much” thing, but at the very least ‘Melo is true to himself right?

Would You Rather Have JR Smith or Jarrett Jack?

With the NBA Finals officially in full swing, the New York Knicks are currently facing an off-season with questions coming from every angle imaginable. With the news earlier this week that second all-time leading assists and steals man Jason Kidd is retiring, the Knicks backcourt could certainly use a boost in anyway shape or form. Although the veteran leadership and presence of...

'Melo buys art — then Hibbert seves it

Carmelo Anthony sports himself as a bit of an art aficionado. So does Roy Hibbert. We're not sure they should be sharing a studio anytime soon, though. First, on Tuesday night, Anthony, whose well-documented playoff failures have become exacerbated in recent times by the success of LeBron James, recently spent another free June reportedly dropping $27,000 on ...
