Melo hits game-winning three to bury Bulls

Not too long ago disgruntled New York Knicks fans were calling for Carmelo Anthony to be traded. He was messing with the team’s chemistry. He was shooting too much. He was taking the ball out of Jeremy Lin’s hands. Lin and Amar’e Stoudemire each haven’t played since March 24th due to injuries. Anthony [...]

Carmelo Anthony looked especially dapper before Tuesday night’s Knicks game (pic)

Looking good, Carmelo Anthony. Looking good. It takes considerable fashion gravitas to pull of the multi-buttoned suit coat over the buttoned cardigan look without it appearing, well, too button-ey. Throw in the bow tie and Knicks-colored headphones and more often than not one would have the makings of an overly busy ensemble. But we’re talking [...]

Knicks G Lin doubts return for first round of playoffs

The New York Knicks have yet to qualify for the postseason - but if they do, guard Jeremy Lin doesn't feel he'll be ready to join them for the first round. Lin is recovering from surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his left knee. "I think unless something goes really well, I wouldn't get there," Lin told ESPN New York. Lin acknowledged that he is feeling...

Jeremy Lin doubtful of a Round 1 return

Jeremy Lin said he is "cautiously optimistic" that he will play again for the New York Knicks this year, but doesn't think it will be until the second round of the playoffs. The Knicks point guard speaking before yesterday's 100-99 overtime win over the Chicago Bulls— and six days after surgery for a torn left meniscus— said he does not want to rush back. ...

Knicks Won't Keep Carmelo At Power Forward When Stoudemire Returns

Carmelo Anthony has thrived in his new role as power forward in the absence of Amar'e Stoudemire.

Carmelo Anthony Takes Over

The performance Carmelo Anthony put on at Madison Square Garden today was the type that made you laugh at anybody who regretted giving up Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari and the immortal Timofey Mozgov. For all the headaches of the past season and a half, the Knicks victory over the Chicago Bulls, the de facto best team in the league, showed why the Anthony was...

Where’s Lester Hudson’s “Linsanity?”

On February 6, the shorthanded New York Knicks topped the Utah Jazz at home. The team’s two best players were inactive, dealing with various issues ranging from personal to health. The hero of the day — and subsequent weeks — was a hardwood vagabond, a scrappy guard who had been bounced from multiple NBA franchises, left to trudge through the murk and muck of the NBDL. Jeremy...

'Melo trumps Rose in wild overtime win

Two quarters. That's all the time it took for Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose to shake the rust off after a 12-game absence with a groin injury. And two shots was all it took for Carmelo Anthony to spoil the reigning MVP's return to the floor. 'Melo scored a season-high 43 points on 16-of-31 shooting Sunday, outdueling Rose, who poured in 22 second-half points...

Knicks' Chandler's wrist is hurting but no surgery needed

The New York Knicks pulled out a thrilling overtime win against the Chicago Bulls yesterday and if this team remains as the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, then they will need as much firepower they can have if they want any chance at upsetting the Bulls. It is bad enough that New York lost Jeremy Lin for the season and that Amar'e Stoudemire is day-to-day with...
