New York Knicks
Though NBA teams don't formally start training camp until next month, Mike Woodson and the Knickerbockers are getting to work a bit earlier.As ESPN New York reported, the Knicks came together as a collective group on Monday, logging hours at the team's training facility. While Tyson Chandler and Pablo Prigioni were reportedly not at the workout, Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony did in fact headline the players present.What's more, both J.R. and Chris Smith (along with injured guards Iman Shumpert and Ronnie Brewer) were in New York City to help raise money for a charity recognizing the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorists attacks yesterday, so perhaps the Smith brothers participated in the session the day prior as well.Extra time in the gym to help the team come together and build an on-the-court understanding is key at this point in time. After a season and a half of ups and downs, and claims that more time was necessary to gel, the pressure is on for STAT and Me...

Chris Broussard with ESPN reports that the Knicks have hired Olajuwon to train several of its players.

The Knicks organization has a small sample of head coach Mike Woodson’s coaching style to analyze. So far, his coaching skills have been well received by the team. Will this translate to a winning season?
Under Woodson, last year’s regular season, the Knicks went 18-6 and never lost 2 games in a row. Out of the 6 games they lost, only 2 slip ups were apparent against teams...
New York Knicks point guard Jason Kidd intends to fight a charge that he was drunk when he crashed his SUV into a telephone pole in the Hamptons over the summer, his lawyer said Wednesday.
Kidd, wearing a navy pinstriped suit and tie, said ''good morning'' to reporters outside Southampton Town Court on Long Island. But he didn't speak as he stood, back straight...
The lights flicker on, one by one in a row at the Knicks training facility. The smell of floor polisher is fresh in the air. This day is not like any other summer day, this day is Day 1 of the organized pre camp sessions. The sound of basketballs hitting the floor begins to ring off the walls and the smell of sweat over powers the freshly polished floors. Carmelo calls all the players...
I don’t know what he and Brian Shaw have done, but they can’t seem to get a head coaching job no matter how many times they interview. Unless you count this D League offer. Former New York Knicks great Patrick Ewing declined an offer to coach the Knicks D-League team, a source close to Ewing [...]

JR Smith was taking in shows during Fashion Week – he plays for the Knicks, beside the Heat they’d probably like to be considered the NBA’s most fashionable team- JR put it on record that the Knicks WILL win a championship this year.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how every player should expect a championship. I even went so far as to say
I don't care if you're Bismack Biyombo. If you're asked about the "tough season coming up," you respond with "I go into every game expecting to win and trying to do everything I can to make that happen. If it turns out to be a tough season...
At least that’s the way he feels. A source close to Patrick revealed that he felt somewhat disrespected after the Knicks offered him a job to coach the Erie Bayhawks, a D-League team. Having already established himself as an assistant in the NBA, the source continued to say “Patrick has paid his dues…he was a little insulted…”
