Knicks coach Mike Woodson is standing by his team through thick and thin–eyebrows or no eyebrows. Woodson has faith that his team can beat the almighty Miami Heat.
As reported by FanNation Woodson is saying all the things that a head coach should, even in spite of the Knicks’ putrid performance of late coming out of the All Star Break, and the unremarkable pickup of Kenyon Martin. Woodson went on to say
“We had early success against Miami,”
“That’s all well and good. But when you get in a seven-game series, that’s different. Anything can happen. Injuries can occur, guys can lose confidence. But if we’re healthy, yes, we have an opportunity to beat Miami or anybody in the East.”
Maybe it’s just lip service, but then again maybe Woodson sees a true spark in his team despite their age and mounting injuries. When both teams are 100% health wise and given a best of 7 series to go to war do the Knicks have just as good a chance to advance?

Addition of Kenyon Martin:
Following a brutal loss to the Indiana Pacers, Knicks fans are left wondering about their team.What adjustments should the Knicks make to their rotations? Given the trade of Ronnie Brewer to the Thunder, and the acquisition of Kenyon Martin, there are many different ways the Knicks can shake up their rotation. One of the benefits of having Martin in our...
As Deadspin reported, Knicks Guard/Forward JR Smith is smooth with the ladies. Some would call him a modern-day Shakespeare, or a Casanova if you will. After this screenshot of a Twitter Direct Message with a High School senior went public, JR Smith made light of the situation with the following Instagram post:
Well played, JR. Well played.
Oh, and you know it’s only a...

The Pacers strength is their defense and...
The New York Knicks needed one in the worst way tonight, but struggled to find a rhythm, as an ugly third quarter proved to be too much to overcome in the fourth. The offensive and defense were both in sync at times, but never simultaneously until it was too late.
The first half was pretty sloppy on both sides, with lots of turnovers and tacky fouls, but ended with a three point...

Iman Shumpert had a pretty solid rookie campaign last season for the New York Knicks, but after suffering a torn ACL injury that year, the 22-year-old hasn’t been the same. In 14 games this season, Shumpert is averaging a lowly five points and three rebounds per game, while shooting 32-percent.
He’s clearly been a slump, and as the New York Post reports,...

As you can tell by the 86-67 final score, the Chicago Bulls are no match for the Miami Heat without their star Derrick Rose. LeBron James pretty much shoots over 60% from the field on a nightly basis these days. Last night was no different. James went 11-15 (73%), and started shooting with his left hand just to rub some salt in the wound. This particular shot was after the...
