Found August 17, 2012 on Sports Blog Net:
In the first month of the season, The Knicks are playing 9 teams straight that have made the playoffs last year. Early on, this is a great test for us. This makes sure we are focused right out of the gate. If we manage to get 7 wins out of the first 9, we will definitely be a 1st or 2nd seed in the east. Following a rough first nine games, we have a cake-walk. 5 out of the last 6 games of the first month are against teams that did not make the playoffs. In the first month of the season i can see us realistically going 11-4 which would put us in the top 3-4 in the east. I expect the newly renovated Stoudemire to come in and have a strong first month and solidifying himself once again as a force in the paint. What do expect out of Carmelo Anthony & Tyson Chandler ? Nothing. There's no such things as expectations. Just get it done.

Carmelo Anthony in “The Melo’s” Footlocker Commercial

New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony has teamed up with Footlocker to promote his new line of Jordan-brand clothing and shoes. The idea is that Carmelo hires five “Carmelo’s” so he can wear all his Carmelo gear at once, but Carmelo #5 doesn’t really fit in with the others–being that he’s your average-looking white guy. Watch the first installment of Carmelo’s Footlocker...

Carmelo Anthony stars in new Foot Locker ad (Video)

New York Knicks star (and USA gold medalist) Carmelo Anthony stars in a new Foot Locker commercial promoting Jordan-brand T-shirts and shoes. The idea behind it is that Anthony had to hire some extra "Melo's" so that he could wear all his new Approved Foot Locker gear at the same time. It seems that Carmelo tried to find guys that looked like him, but he stretched...

Today brings yet another video clip, exclusively from Team STAT, with an update on Stoudemire's progress.The key to the Knicks' star forward making strides over the last week seems to be his level of motivation this...

Tyson Chandler: Heart & Soul of the New York Knicks

The day that Tyson Chandler was signed and traded to the NY Knicks  changed my view of the front office and Grunwald in particular. This was a major outside the box move, if there was ever one. Losing Chauncey was a blow, but in my opinion he was vastly over rated at this point in his career. If you had the Billups of old , than that’s a different story all together. His age...

Former New York Knicks Point Guard Baron Davis Making a Comeback

Baron Davis has had an impressive career since being selected third overall in the 1999 NBA Draft. Since then he’s played for the Charlotte/New Orleans Hornets, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks. Most people believed his career came to an end last season when he ripped his ACL and MCL. However, now Davis is planning a comeback...

New York Knicks’ Iman Shumpert on hopes for a January return

  Many have been focused on Derrick Rose and his rehabilitation and when he will return to the league, but another player tore his ACL and the New York Knicks need him badly. Enter Iman Shumpert. Iman has been on social media — basically twitter — updating his progress with rehab and he believes he [...]

Footlocker Commercial: The Melo's

New commercial from Footlocker [video]: Carmelo Anthony is an incredibly busy man. That's why he has a bunch of "Melo's" to help play body-double for him; including one who looks strikingly similar to Craig Smith.   

Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh & Kevin Love featured in new Footlocker commercials

Footlocker has a new campaign with commercial spots featuring Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Kevin Love, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh. The favorite for most of the three seems to be “Tear away” which features teammates James Harden and Russell Westbrook at a party when Russ accidentally gets mustard on James’ new ensemble. Not an issue [...]

WHO IS JR SMITH?????????

Who is JR Smith today? THE MOST DANGEROUS UNDERRATED/UNDER-PAID SG IN THE HISTORY OF THE NBA!   It is undeniable Smith has brought most of this on himself. He is the one who has failed to live up to his talent. He is the one who has made mistakes on, and most tragically, off the court. He is the one who has chosen to storm off the court and remove himself from his team.  ...

Video: Top 10 USA Basketball plays from the 2012 Olympics

  The Olympics have come and went, but the dominance of LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Carmelo Anthony in the Olympics is still imbedded in our membrane, so why not revisit the best plays from Team USA Basketball during the 2012 Olympics. What’s your favorite? I’m partial to Russell Westbrook’s powerful dunks.

Woodson on Stoudemire training with Olajuwon: “It’s going to enhance his game tremendously. Hakeem is one of the best low-post guys to ever play the game. I can’t help but think he’s going to be much...

Carmelo’s Unwarranted Pressure

“LeBron wins his 1st championship! He did it! He did it!” *sighs* Those words have been ringing in my head over the last two months. I can’t seem to get rid of it because according to the public, it is now Carmelo Anthony’s turn to win. Why you ask? Well, it is obvious right? Think back to the 2003 draft class for a second. Dwayne Wade has 2, Darko Milicic has 1, and now...
