It has been a full decade since Marcus Camby took the court for a regular season game in a New York Knicks uniform, but the veteran center has already begun stirring the pot with the Knicks’ cross-state rivals. The Knicks have always been called New York’s team when it comes to basketball, but the Nets have always been based in New Jersey. Now that they have moved their franchise to Brooklyn, will things change? Camby doesn’t expect them to, as was evident when he was asked about Hurricane Sandy resulting in the postponing of the Nets-Knicks opener and the unveiling of Brooklyn’s new $1 billion arena. “Well, it was going to be a home game for us tonight too,” Camby said according to ESPNNewYork.com. And so it begins — or should I say continues. Whether or not the Nets move to Brooklyn results in a more loyal fan base remains to be seen, but it will take a lot for them to match the Knicks in terms of a following. When Dwight Howard supposedly wanted to be traded to the Nets, Patrick ...

If Jeremy Lin has a very productive year for the Rockets, he'll make it difficult for the Knicks to forget him so easily. In Houston's inaugural game of the season Wednesday night, he propelled himself to a strong start. The Harvard grad scored 12 points, dished out 8 assists, and grabbed 4 steals. Perhaps more impressively, Lin's had a team-high plus/minus of +23 (the...
KNOW YOUR ROLE
Rasheed Wallace knows his best days are long behind him, but he's more than comfortable with his bench role on the Knickerbockers.

Carmelo Anthony heard the news about the New York City Marathon being canceled, then came out to warm up and saw plenty of empty seats at Madison Square Garden.
At that moment, it would've been easy to agree with Dwyane Wade and others, that this wasn't the time to be playing games.
By tip-off, Anthony and the Knicks knew otherwise.
Fans had filled the place, when even...

The New York Knicks wrapped up the preseason with a 97-95 win last Wednesday night against the Brooklyn Nets to bring them to 3-3. The Knicks were hopeful that the damage from Hurricane Sandy cleared up enough to open up their season this Thursday night against the Brooklyn Nets but New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg announced it’s postponment.

Nothing that happened at Madison Square Garden last night will compare to the emotion at Shea Stadium on September 21st, 2001. For all his on-the-court heroics, Carmelo (or is it Melo now?) Anthony wasn’t Mike Piazza. Eric Spoelstra wasn’t Bobby Cox; Mike Woodson wasn’t Bobby Valentine and Lebron James wasn’t Chipper Jones. Or, maybe he kind of was. In any event, it would...
The game between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets that was postponed by SuperStorm Sandy will be played on Monday, Nov. 26.
The teams were scheduled to play the first regular-season game at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday night, but Mayor Michael Bloomberg asked the NBA to postpone it with much of the city's mass-transit system still not operating.

Carmelo Anthony and rest of the Knicks team told the fans yesterday that hurricane Sandy was a horribe storm that ruined NYC and he also told the fans that we will pull through together as New Yorker's.
Later on, the Knicks dominanted the game against the Heat...
We've waited, said TWT ( a Steady-isum for Time will Tell ).... for this very moment for a very long time. Tonight is the last night the Knicks will be known as good. Tonight will be the start of something no MSM would believe or even dare to believe. The Knicks will be known as the team to beat on their way to the Championship.Tonight will be the last time even Barkley question...
Barclays Center sits right above a major mass-transit hub, an ideal destination for fans throughout New York.
Not right now, though.
With those subways knocked out by Hurricane Sandy and no way of knowing how fans would get there, the city's mayor decided this isn't the time for a game.
So Michael Bloomberg asked the NBA to postpone Thursday's highly anticipated opener...
