The Knicks might be looking to add some help, but coach Mike Woodson says nothing is happening at the moment. Some names have popped up over the last week and one that I did not hear until today was Josh Powell. Best friend of Chris Bosh and long-time NBA journeyman, Josh Powell has the height and weight to bang down low, but what can he really bring?
The source said that the Knicks should target the 6-9, 240-pound Powell, who’s currently playing for Greek powerhouse, Olympiacos, because the 30-year-old is “still young and strong, and a solid rebounder.” While Sims and Samuels have been blowing up in the D-League this season, they’re both younger and Woodson prefers veterans. That’s why Kenyon Martin was brought in, and he’s added a big boost defensively.
Many names will pop up over the next week or so, but the Knicks certainly will address this issue in the off-season. The veteran approach has backfired on them big time. With 5 0r 6 possible free agents, the Knicks will NEED to think outside the box and add younger veteran minimum contracts. They are also armed with a mini mid level to add to their roster. If they look in the right areas maybe they can find some decent players like Andray Blatche, Ivan Johnson and Dejuan Blair. Furthermore, the Knicks can give an “NBA dreamer” a shot to make the team Ala Chris Copeland. Riley did it in the 90′s with Mason and Starks and they became New York’s heart and soul. For people to say that the Knicks are strapped for the next 3 years is false information. They are in a tough spot cap wise, but they can make some minor moves that will vastly improve their depth. Just because you are limited under the new CBA doesn’t mean they can’t find bargains and get younger at the same time.

BEST OF MAXIM
The leadership displayed this season by New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson has been exemplary and has the team humming right along on a run to high seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs race. Sitting at 40-26 and in first place in the Atlantic Division, the Knicks are in prime position for a run of success in the postseason. But perhaps Knicks players shouldn’t follow their...
Holy snap Batman, that's Mike Woodson in a serious black and white polka dot shirt. Somebody get this man a mirror.
Mike Woodson must think his name is Kwame (youngins won’t get that reference).
I had a shirt similar to this, I was also in 8th grade, but I digress. JR Smith gave his thoughts on Woodson trying to upstage Russell Westbrook.

Totally off topic, but that is a nice spread they...
NOT A GOOD LOOK
I guess Knicks guard JR Smith fancies himself somewhat of a fashionista, seeing that he took it upon himself to critique his coach’s choice in outerwear. To be fair to Smith, that is one of the ugliest shirts ever seen on a man. White polka dots on a black shirt are so 2010, and why do they not continue to the upper back portion of Woodson’s top? Even Woodson looks about as impressed...

When the Knicks removed the interim tag and officially named Mike Woodson the Head Coach last May, he made it a point to stress that players had to be held accountable, defense had to be a priority and winning the Atlantic division was a must! However, with the Knicks struggling with injuries and literally limping to the finish...
You win, it was J.R. Smith.

In this week’s TOK Roundtable, the staff pretends for a second that they’re Mike Woodson and offers their opinion on the following: Which Knicks player should be getting more playing time? Which should be getting less?
Chris Celletti - Pablo Prigioni is a candidate for more minutes. (I would have never said this 8 months ago, because I had no idea who Pablo Prigioni was 8...
Let's just call Avery Bradley the Heat killer. After his infamous block on Dwyane Wade last year, he followed up last season's performance with a crazy chase-down block of Norris Cole, seen in the video above.
Also, Bradley his a nice crossover on Chris Bosh that landed Bosh on his ass (below).
It's only halftime so I don't want to jinx anything, but I am convinced...
We have to mention it, partially because everyone else is and partially, well, because it's actually starting to become historic.
The Miami Heat, the most loaded team in NBA history has finally grown into the team everyone expected them to be. After all, they have 3 of the Top 10 or so players in the league (LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh) and...
Gail Goodrich knew Miami would beat Boston the other night.
He knew even a 17-point deficit, the largest they had faced in six weeks, wouldn't stop LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
''Once they got back in the game, there was no doubt in my mind they were going to win,'' Goodrich said of the Heat's 105-103 victory Monday. ''They just are...
Chris Bosh is officially jealous. Check out the fine photobombing work that Miami’s Julian Gamble pulled off during their title run through the ACC Tournament. I’m not sure how this flew under the radar, but some of the photobombs of head coach Jim Larranaga are just phenomenal.
