With many veteran players, including Amar'e Stoudemire and Rasheed Wallace, expected to sit out the Knicks' first preseason game vs. the Wizards later tonight, the matchup will be a great opportunity for players like Mychel Thompson and Chris Copeland to strut their stuff. Both still on non-guaranteed contracts, each one is still fighting for a coveted roster spot.After being...
When Carmelo Anthony was traded to the New York Knicks a couple of seasons ago, fans and even some in the media pegged it as the move that made the Knicks an instant threat. Melo, they said, was the superstar New York needed to carry them deep into the playoffs and back to respectability. But so far, it has not panned out. There is no real need to rehash every little detail. The...
Chris Smith signed with the New York Knicks in August hoping to making the regular season roster out of training camp. He is the younger brother of NBA star J.R. Smith. Smith injured his knee in practice last Saturday and has been sitting out since. Now, it has been confirmed that he will need surgery on his left patella tendon and will miss three to six months. Nate Taylor...
The Knicks finally have something they have been missing for years and that is a full 48 minutes of depth at the center position.
This center position is what the Knicks used to be all about. The Knicks used to control the paint, which made it hard for their opposition to score easy buckets.
Chandler is one of the fan favorites in New York because of the way he carries himself...
New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire missed the first preseason game against the Wizards due to cautionary reasons. Now it seems as if he could miss the second preseason game against the Celtics as well. Nate Taylor from Off the Dribble reports that Amar'e did not scrimmage with the team but did go through the team's walk-though and weight room session.“I could...
There was a time Carmelo Anthony was considered one of the top five talents in the game. That time is no more and in full disclosure, Melo might not even be top five at HIS position.
Most basketball fans will say Kevin Durant is the greatest scorer in the game today, and may go down as the greatest in history. That was a title once flaunted emphatically by Carmelo Anthony, however...
The injury curse from last year’s 2011-12 Louisville basketball squad has unfortunately made its way to the NBA.Former Cardinal guard Chris Smith has reportedly suffered a knee injury that will cause him to miss the next 3-6 months. Chris suffered this injury in practice with the New York Knicks as they are currently in preseason play. He will have left patella tendon surgery later...
The New York Knicks have a lot of talent. It's still unclear if that talent is going to mix together. We know Tyson Chandler is starting at center, Amar'e Stoudemire is starting at power forward, Carmelo Anthony at the small forward and Raymond Felton is starting at point guard. The big question for the Knicks right now is who will start at shooting guard, especially while...

Knicks @ Wizards Post Game:
Before we discuss the game, let me just say the absence of Stat, Marcus and Brewer makes up a large part of this teams
rotation. It will be hard to break down any game without the major players in the game.
1st quarter was a 3 point barrage. Knicks looked like beasts from the arc and Ray and Kidd ran the 1st and 2nd unit like champs. Novak...
