Found April 26, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
If Phil Jackson plans to return to coaching next season, it sounds like the Knicks are going to do everything it takes to make sure he’s patrolling the sidelines at Madison Square Garden. Although Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire recently said they would like to see Mike Woodson return next season, it’s no secret that the Knicks want the Zen Master to be their guy. According to Gery Woelfel of, the Knicks plan to make a major push to coax Jackson out of retirement if they are bounced in the first round of the playoffs. How major? It is believed that money won’t be an object, and that New York will offer the coaching legend a four-year, $50 million contract. Now that’s some coaching money. The Knicks have certainly had their problems since acquiring Anthony, but Jackson’s reputation for handling superstars is unmatched. From M.J. to Kobe to Shaq, the Zen Master always finds a way to make it work. Considering he played with the Knicks for 11 seasons in the 1960...

Woodson wants to 'finish the job'

Mike Woodson has done an admirable job of turning the season around for the Knicks, and he hopes "to be the guy who's in charge running the show and finishing."

Isiah Thomas dines with Knicks coach Woodson

New York Knicks interim coach Mike Woodson was spotted having dinner Tuesday night just hours after Glen Grunwald got promoted as the permanent executive VP/GM sources told The New York Post. Woodson, Grunwald and Thomas were seen dining at Serafina, a popular Westchester County Italian restaurant. Before anyone gets the idea there was more than a pot of Puttanesca being stirred...

Carmelo would love Mike Woodson to coach him more than he did D'Antoni

The cynical side of me thinks that of course Carmelo Anthony is going to say publicly that he loves Mike Woodson because he doesn't want to be labeled a coach killer after already getting one coach fired earlier this season. The more understanding, and less judgemental, side of me thinks that maybe Mike Woodson is just a better fit for this Knicks team moving forward though too...

NBA players show off their dance moves

Not quite sure what Carmelo Anthony is doing here. More like a full bodied dry heave set to music. One of those problems I hoped would just go away. Every time you check your email, think --... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~

Knicks' Woodson left in limbo

Glen Grunwald had the interim tag removed from his title as New York Knicks vice president and general manager on Tuesday. But he was not ready to do the same for interim coach Mike Woodson. Not yet. "Right now," Grunwald said, "we just need to stay focused on the playoffs." Woodson's 17-6 record since he took over for Mike D'Antoni on March 14 certainly...

Knicks To Rest Stars Following Win Over Clippers?

Following the Knicks' 99-93 win over the Clippers last night, gearing up for the playoffs will become first priority. With just one game left in the regular season (tonight against the lowly Bobcats), and game one of the playoffs to be played on Saturday, the team can use all the rest they can get.This is why, according to ESPN New York, Carmelo Anthony is expected to sit out...

Carmelo Anthony, Lala, Amar’e Stoudemire and more attend Audemars Piguet dinner

Monday night was quite social in NYC. Carmelo Anthony, his wife Lala plus his Knicks teammates, Amar’e Stoudemire, Baron Davis and JR Smith were spotted at a dinner thrown by luxury brand Audemars Piguet at Catch in New York’s Meatpacking District. Also in attendance, Kim Kardashian and her new boo Kanye West, and rapper/producer extraordinaire Swizz [...]

Does Carmelo have more on the line than LeBron?

Carmelo Anthony versus LeBron James may be the most exciting matchup that we’ll see all post-season. Two tremendous NBA talents go head-to-head with a lot more on the line than just winning a game or a series. James has to try to piece together the first (of many) championships he promised when he ditched Cleveland for the sunny beaches of Miami. Not one… Not two… Not three…...

Report suggests Lamar Odom never got past Phil Jackson’s retirement

When Lamar Odom’s career comes to a close, we could very well look back on the 2011-2012 season as the year when it all fell apart. Since being traded from the Lakers to the Mavericks, Odom has been a headcase. He was a complete non-factor in Dallas until the team finally decided to part ways with him and pay out the remainder of his contract. To this point, it has been a well...

Featuring The NBA 2012 Dance Team

You have to love and respect this. The NBA has thrown together 100 seconds of glorious dance moves by NBA players including LeBron, Dwyane Wade, and Carmelo Anthony. I’d love to see this compilation for the past 30 years or so and see the evolution of NBA dance. via The Great Folks at Bob’s Blitz Article found on: Cosby Sweaters

Shortened season over, time for the NBA postseason

The sprint to the NBA playoffs is over and the postseason lineup is one of the most intriguing ever. LeBron James vs. Carmelo Anthony, the young and confident Oklahoma City Thunder looking for an early knockout against the defending champion Dallas Mavericks, two Los Angeles teams shooting for one title and the venerable San Antonio Spurs looking for a second lockout-season title...

Clips lose, can't secure home-court for playoffs

NEW YORK (AP) -- JR Smith scored 21 points, including a rally-stopping jumper with 31 seconds left, and the New York Knicks held on to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 99-93 on Wednesday night and close in on the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference. Carmelo Anthony scored 17 points for the Knicks, but he was on the bench in the final minutes as the Knicks blew nearly all of an 18...

Knicks-Bobcats Preview

The New York Knicks don't seem overly concerned about where they start their postseason regardless of the outcome of their regular-season finale. The Charlotte Bobcats, however, have plenty of incentive to win Thursday night to avoid capping an utterly miserable and potentially record-setting season of futility. For the Knicks (35-30), a victory would ensure them the No. 7...
