That NBA Lottery Pick:
It’s been awhile since we’ve done a post about New York Knicks forward Metta World Peace on this fair website and this one is a doozy.
Recently, Metta did a Q&A with Steve Serby of the New York Post and had a very interesting response to a question about “The Malice In The Palace”:
Q: The Malice at the Palace.
A: I wrote a book about it, son. I think I’m gonna wait to talk about it. But I wrote a book about that whole experience.
So, Metta might have written a book about that infamous day and if I speak for any of us, we need to read this book as soon as possible…

“It’s looking good,” Woodson said on Sunday. “I don’t know who’s going to start yet. But I like the makeup of Andrea and Melo on the floor at the same time with Tyson [Chandler]. In the scrimmage we worked that combination. It wasn’t bad.”
Anthony and Bargnani have had seven practices together.
“Me and ‘B’ had a great week, just playing together...
The New York Knicks have a lot of awkward fitting pieces on a team that was so successful at going small last season and playing a perimeter-oriented game that was difficult for many defenses to keep up against. This season the Knicks are looking to inject newcomer Andrea Bargnani and the oft-injured Amar'e Stoudemire into the rotation because these two guys can be pretty good...
Since staring at the schedule isn’t making the 2013-14 season get any closer, TOK has been breaking down the New York Knicks’ games by division . We end it with the most important one, the Atlantic Division.
Last Year: Knicks won season series 3-1 and First Round of playoffs 4-2.
This Year: Home – December 8th, January 28th, Away – December 13th, March...
As the NBA season rapidly approaches, every team is doing their best to strategize which players to play and which to sit out during preseason games- New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson has decided it's best to sit out Amar'e Stoudemire, J.R. Smith, and also Jeremy Tyler for at least the first three games.Although this isn't much of a surprise, it is just being confirmed...

Mike Woodson says J.R. Smith has a shot to start in the “wide open” competition for the starting shooting guard position.
“He’s in the mix, too,’’ Woodson said of Smith. “If things turn out well for him coming back, he can possibly slip in.’’
Iman Shumpert does not have his starting role locked up and is dealing with a sore right shoulder.
Does Carmelo Anthony finally have the sidekick he’s always wanted?
The Knicks feel they may have finally gotten Melo the help he needs with the added addition of versatile big man Andrea Bargnani.
The Knicks have scrimmaged twice so far this season with the two on the wing together, and so far Mike Woodson and company really like what they see.
“It’s looking good,” Woodson...

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
Last Year: The Knicks split with the ‘Dubs last season, including edging them out 109-105 at MSG despite Steph Curry dropping a mesmerizing 54 points. Things were much uglier...
Josh Powell, Ike Diogu and Cole Aldrich are competing for one of the final spots on the New York Knicks' regular season roster.
All three big men were signed to non-guaranteed contracts.
"One of them has a good chance to make it," Mike Woodson said.
The Knicks also signed Jeremy Tyler in the offseason, but he is recovering from an injury.
Mike Woodson is liking the chemistry in playing Andrea Bargnani with Carmelo Anthony.
Anthony played a lot of minutes last season at power forward for the New York Knicks, but he could slide to small forward with Bargnani.
"It’s looking good," Woodson said on Sunday. "I don’t know who’s going to start yet. But I like the makeup of Andrea and Melo on the floor...

Due to a "logjam" at shooting guard and small forward coach Mike Woodson is planning to go with a traditional backcourt over the two-point guard backcourt that fueled the Knicks for long stretches last season.
"I know I can always go back to [a backcourt featuring point guards] Pablo [Prigioni] and Raymond [Felton] but at this point I’m going to try a big guard...
Carmelo and Amare were supposed to be the Wonder Twins, instead Carmelo is stuck with JR Smith as his #2.
That would make sad as well.
Carmelo hopes Amar'e can be ready for the opener: "To see him go forward & then take some steps back every time, it's just sad." #Knicks

NBA experts, as well as most of the casual NBA fan base are in agreement that LeBron James is not only the best small forward in the NBA – he’s clearly the best player in the NBA, and one of the greatest players the NBA has ever seen. James’ rare blend of size, strength, speed, […]
Last season, the Knicks saw Jason Kidd get played into the ground due to increased playing time and a more exhausting role. Clearly benefitting from his impact on the court, New York suffered that much more when he was tired.
Kidd wasn't the only veteran that got exhausted over the course of the season. The likes of Rasheed Wallace, Marcus Camby, Kurt Thomas, (and even Amar...
