NYC Sports Nation:
New Lakers’ center Dwight Howard is at it again.
This time venting about how Knicks’ Tyson Chandler was given his Defensive Player of the Year award last season.
“I thought I should have won it last year, to be honest with you,” Howard said, according to ESPN.com. ”I was a little bit upset about that.”
Howard feels the award was given to Chandler because of all the negative press he was receiving regarding his relationship with the Magic.
“I felt like I did my job to win it. I also feel like I didn’t because of the whole situation,” Howard said. “That played a factor in it.”
Howard should just move on.

The New York Knicks had a little bit of a scare tonight as their best defensive player, Tyson Chandler was forced to leave Wednesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets with an apparent knee injury.
The injury to Chandler occurred when he and Nets forward Gerald Wallace had collided with each other. Right after the collision, Chandler dropped to the ground immediately and began...
On Tuesday, Charles Barkley continued his rant against the New York Knicks saying the Brooklyn Nets are “the best team in New York.” According to ESPN, Barkley ripped the New York Knicks for being old.“If it was 2000, I would make the New York Knicks the favorite to win the NBA championship,” Barkley said.Barkley was speaking on a conference call with fellow TNT analysts...
In order to avoid falling asleep during this game, I took notes. I’ll just write on here the notes I took and then I’ll elaborate on them.“Ronnie Brewer airball” Yeah that was disgusting.“Steve ‘Swaggy P’ Novak” Novak was playing exactly like Nick Young of the Sixers tonight. He took a gross three off a dribble, but then hit one off the dribble a few possessions later...
The New York Knicks need Stoudemire to be healthy for them to be a serious contender this year, but where is the best place for him in the lineup? Not to only get the best out of him as a player, but also to help the Knicks other key pieces.
I love statistics and numbers don’t lie, they don’t capture everything but they definitely paint a picture based on facts. I was...
With Stoudemire out, Carmelo Anthony now likely assumes the power forward position against the Brooklyn Nets, and beyond. Stoudemire will be nursing the rupture of a cyst in his left knee reportedly for the next 2-3 weeks.
It is the same knee that sidelined Stoudemire for majority of the 2005-06 season with Phoenix.
Anthony who commented simply, “. . .I played it last year”....
Preseason game 5… Melo’s return to Cuse
3 Thoughts immediately after watching this game:
1. I was disappointed with the Knicks in the first half of this game tonight. They started off with a good open to the game, but after that the Knicks offense was stagnate. Guys were taking bad shots and poor ball movement mixed with absent transition defense lead to what...
As the 1st quarter of the Knicks/Celtics pre-season game wound down Saturday, Mike Breen said, “It sounds simple: Ball Movement. But, it is really is the key to success on the offensive end”. Mike could not have been more right. The teams you see win rings are the ones that move the ball. Elite teams like Boston, Miami, and Chicago have unselfish players. Since the Melo trade...
Amar’e Stoudemire, New York Knicks Center-Forward, may actually be fortunate to have suffered a ruptured popliteal cyst this week, though it will keep him out of action for at least two to three weeks. What is more worrisome than this new wrinkle is whether any of the knee diagnoses Stoudemire has dealt with in the past are more of an issue than the Knicks are aware of or are letting...
Amare just can’t seem to stay healthy.
Well if Doc Rivers is teaching the Boston Celtics to hate the Miami Heat, it seems that Mike Woodson may be getting a message through to the Knicks to hate the Brooklyn Nets.
During an appearance on Anthony Donahue’s The Knicks Blog internet radio show, Felton was asked about the Knicks-Nets season opener on Nov. 1.
After hearing about the comments made by Nets owner Mikhail...
Knicks vs 76ers Pre Game:
The Knicks are once again shorthanded. Yes, we get to see the debut of Ronnie Brewer at the shooting guard position and yes, this will be Carmelo Anthony’s return to the Carrier Dome on the campus of Syracuse University.
I, for one, do not want the major excuse for this season to become the fact that Carmelo and Amar’e have not had a full training...
Rasheed Wallace. Yep, I dared team Ballin Like Smush to do it and he is now the proud owner of ‘Sheed for $1 (until waivers on Thursday kicks in at least). This, in a way, shows the beauty of an auction. You can start nominating the top guys like LeBron James or try to squeeze [...]
