The Victory Formation:
Metta World Peace has worked hard on his image for the past few years, but he has stumbled at times along the way. Like a couple of seasons ago when he viciously elbowed James Harden. It brought us back to that guy formerly known as Ron Artest, who incited a brawl with fans. He has attempted to move on from that incident with Harden, but a young fan brought him all the way back, and Metta responded in such disbelief that he lied to the young impressionable child. The New York Knicks forward was on a bus tour of the city with the Garden of Dreams Foundation on Tuesday, and had the following exchange with the fan. Via Time.comRead more →

Tim Hardaway Jr’s clutch game winner feels like ages ago, doesn’t it?
Thankfully, it’s just preseason. The Varsity Knicks had one poor performance this weekend while the JV Knicks had a forgettable one as well. Before the Knicks head off to Baltimore to take on the Washington Wizards on Thursday, let’s take a look back at what happened this past weekend.

What will the New York Knicks rotation look like to start the season?
Joe Caporoso - I’m going to guess Mike Woodson rolls with Ray Felton...
The New York Knicks improved to 2-2 in the preseason with a 98-89 victory against the Washington Wizards. The Knicks got off to a bad start defensively, giving up 30 points in the first quarter, but rebounded to get the win. It was a good night for the Knicks in Baltimore and a homecoming for Carmelo Anthony.
Anthony moved to Baltimore when he was 8 years old. Anthony grew...
New York Knicks fans, you might want to sit down before you read this: Carmelo Anthony's days in the Big Apple may be numbered.
That news comes courtesy of an interview with the New York Observer , in which Anthony said he has every intention of opting out of the final year of his contract and testing the waters of free agency next summer.
"I want to be a free agent,"...

Carmelo Anthony will be paid $21,486,177 by the New York Knicks this season plus he’ll make approximately $8 million in endorsements, where a majority of that will come from Nike. Melo ranks third in retail sales of sneakers in U.S. grossing over $40 million for his role with Jordan Brand. So if there’s any sneaker that Nike doesn’t just give him, Anthony has the finances to...
Almost 50 years ago today, Willis Reed made his NBA debut for the New York Knicks. Most fans from younger generations know him only for his heroic Game 7 performance in the Knicks first championship season, but his entire Hall of Fame career should’t be forgotten.
With the eighth overall pick of the 1964 NBA Draft, which oddly was the first selection of the second...
Attention K-Mart watchers:
Kenyon Martin had his shoeless left ankle wrapped in ice when reporters were allowed in to watch the tail end of practice in Greenburgh on Monday but he and the Knicks were quick to downplay that situation as little more than a preventative measure.
Mike Woodson said Martin took part in the majority of an earlier practice — but the veteran forward continues...
Carmelo Anthony likely gave New York Knick fans minor heart attacks during his interview with Rafi Kohan and The New York Observer: I want to be a free agent. I think everybody in the NBA dreams to be a free agent at least one time in their career. It’s like you have an evaluation period, you know. […]
Jason Kidd lifted the Nets to their greatest NBA heights, and on Thursday they lifted his No. 5 to the rafters.
The Nets retired Kidd's jersey in a ceremony before their former star coached them against the Miami Heat.
Kidd arrived in New Jersey in 2001 and promptly led the Nets, who had been one of the league's sorriest franchises, to consecutive NBA Finals. He played...
Carmelo Anthony’s journey to the NBA began in Baltimore. That’s where his family moved when he was 8 years old. That’s where he became a high- school sensation while at Towson Catholic High School where he grew to 6-foot-5 and was named the Metro Player of the Year in 2001.
He would finish at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia. But his roots are in Baltimore where the Knicks will...
J.R. Smith won the Sixth Man of the Year award coming off the bench for the Knicks last season, got a new deal and now wants to be treated like he’s important.
Smith who is still rehabbing from late off-season knee surgery, told ESPN New York that he “would prefer to be a starter.”
“I’ve always wanted to start. Everybody knows that,” Smith said. “I won the Sixth Man...
Earlier this week Knicks coach Mike Woodson was asked about his third-year guard Iman Shumpert and responded with a deceptively nuanced critique.
"Iman plays hard. That to me is the thing that's kept him on the floor" Woodson said adding that Shumpert had to also become more consistent on defense where he is sometimes "so over-aggressive that he gets beat."...
Looks like Melo is going to test free agency this summer
The NBA is a much different league than it was just a few seasons ago. Gone are the days when superstar players fanned out to all corners of the United States (and Canada) in order to try to build their own championship winners with role players surrounding them.
Nowadays, as evidenced by the Miami Heat, most...
