Mike Woodson hopefully has seen the light this past month. The New York Knicks need to make a line-up change and maybe think about resting Jason Kidd for an extra week after the All-Star break. Kidd has been unproductive as any starting player can possibly be. Think about this for a minute, if this was Ronnie Brewer, giving you 30 minutes of work and resulting in 0 points and 2 assists, what would you do? He would not be the starter anymore, that is for sure. Mike Woodson has finally seen the light. According to Al Iannazzone he is thinking about making changes.
The Knicks have gotten very little from Jason Kidd lately. The starting shooting guard has been scoreless four times in the last nine games, including last night, and had difficulty guarding DeMar DeRozan. Kidd could be coming off the bench after the break as Woodson said he’s contemplating a change. “Right now I don’t like the way we’re starting games,” Woodson said. “I’ve got to go back to the drawing board and figure out what I’m going to do in terms of who starts.”
A line-up change is a must. I would move Shumpert back to the 2 guard and start Copeland until JR Smith is ready to come in at the 6-8 minute mark on the clock. The main problem with the New York Knicks is their roster is filled with one way players, meaning they do not play both ends of the court. Some are defensive and some are offensive. This is a problem moving forward that has not and will not change, unless they make a move.

Woody says he expects Wallace to play no more than 9-10 minutes once he returns. “He’ll never be 100 percent,” he said.

From my eyes, the New York Knicks are positioning themselves to make a move in the next 2 weeks. When the All-Star break is over and teams report back to their practice facilities, the New York Knicks will...
According to Sheridan Hoops, The camp of Iman Shumpert has grown frustrated the way Iman has been developed in the Knicks rotation since his return from injury. I hope all this is not true and Iman is a happy camper in the Orange an Blue. If you read this article from Sheridan Hoops, it sounds as if the Knicks are not using him the proper way and Iman and his handlers are not happy...
Though the Knicks lost three out of their last four contests heading into NBA All-Star Weekend, there's no denying that as they hold the second best record in the Eastern Conference, New York displays more promise than they have in quite some time.An elevated team effort and more overall success often translates to greater representation throughout all the festivities and competitions...
Carmelo Anthony's status for the All-Star Game on Sunday is not certain after suffering an injury last night. Anthony suffered an arm injury in the New York Knicks' loss last night to the Toronto Raptors, and the injury could limit or prevent Anthony from playing altogether in the All-Star Game.According to an AP report, Anthony suffered a deep bruise in his right arm...
Valentine’s Day is a day of love. It is a day that women can’t wait for and men pretend to like for that special lady.
But last year, something made this day special for all Knicks fans. It was the day that everyone fell in love with Jeremy Lin.
Everyone except maybe Carmelo Anthony, who was out with an injury and wasn’t around for Lin’s success.
On this day one year...
The New York Knicks-Brooklyn Nets rivalry is about to get a whole lot more interesting. Both teams have put in bids for the 2015 All-Star Game, and because of their arena situations – MSG recently being renovated and the brand new Barclays Center – NBA deputy commissioner, Adam Silver says it’s “likely” it will be in one of the two boroughs. The Knicks last hosted an All...

Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony have seem to resolve the little spat they had earlier in the year, and have since united for a greater cause: clowning Craig Sager’s awful suit.
Nice to see the two getting along again, and gotta love the comeback Sager threw back at KG.

Carmelo Anthony said he felt numbness throughout the game and called the contusion "kind of deep."
We know about most of the participants in this year’s dunk contest. Just kidding. In the past few years, the dunk contest has been filled with up and comers and bench warmers. So allow me to reintroduce themselves. Jeremy Evans is that nobody that won last year. I don’t think too many people even remember that he won last year. Go ahead. Ask one of your boys who won the NBA dunk...
