One report says the New York Knicks want Phil Jackson as their next head coach and may put up big money to lure him in.
According to the Racine Journal-Times, the Knicks are ready to offer Jackson a large contract if the team is knocked out of the NBA playoffs in the first round.
If the Knicks don't advance beyond the first round of the playoffs, I'm hearing they'll make a major -- repeat, major -- push to lure legendary coach Phil Jackson out of retirement. With money being no object, the scuttlebutt is the Knicks brass may offer the 'Zen Master' a four-year, $50 million deal.
Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire have both said they support Knicks coach Mike Woodson and would like him to remain in New York for future seasons.
Speculation and rumors will continue to fly about the Knicks going after big name coaches during the offseason.

GET DOWN, GET FUNKY
Not quite sure what Carmelo Anthony is doing here. More like a full bodied dry heave set to music. One of those problems I hoped would just go away. Every time you check your email, think --... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com
Amare Stoudemire has returned to the lineup for the Knicks.
The New York Knicks and Orlando Magic have two games remaining on each of their schedules in deciding who receives the 6th seed in the Eastern Conference. The Knicks stand at 34-30 and the Magic are 36-28 coming into their final two games on Wednesday and Thursday. Things are pretty simple, if the Knicks win out and the...
New York Knicks forward A'mare Stoudemire threw down a powerful one-handed dunk over the top of Charlotte Bobcats forward Tyrus Thomas during the third quarter of Thursday night's game.
The dunk got the Knicks bench players, and even some of the hometown Bobcats fans, out of their seats.
Stoudemire scored 21 points to help the Knicks to a 104-84 win.
Following the Knicks' 99-93 win over the Clippers last night, gearing up for the playoffs will become first priority. With just one game left in the regular season (tonight against the lowly Bobcats), and game one of the playoffs to be played on Saturday, the team can use all the rest they can get.This is why, according to ESPN New York, Carmelo Anthony is expected to sit out...

The Knicks sent the Bobcats to their 23rd straight loss. The Knicks roll into South Beach to take on the Heat Saturday afternoon at 3:30 PM ET.
When Lamar Odom’s career comes to a close, we could very well look back on the 2011-2012 season as the year when it all fell apart. Since being traded from the Lakers to the Mavericks, Odom has been a headcase. He was a complete non-factor in Dallas until the team finally decided to part ways with him and pay out the remainder of his contract. To this point, it has been a well...
You have to love and respect this. The NBA has thrown together 100 seconds of glorious dance moves by NBA players including LeBron, Dwyane Wade, and Carmelo Anthony. I’d love to see this compilation for the past 30 years or so and see the evolution of NBA dance.

Carmelo Anthony would like to see Mike Woodson return as head coach of the Knicks for the 12-13 season.
The cynical side of me thinks that of course Carmelo Anthony is going to say publicly that he loves Mike Woodson because he doesn't want to be labeled a coach killer after already getting one coach fired earlier this season. The more understanding, and less judgemental, side of me thinks that maybe Mike Woodson is just a better fit for this Knicks team moving forward though too...
LeBron James started thinking about what a playoff opener against the New York Knicks would mean a few days ago. Amare Stoudemire started talking about taking down the Miami Heat a few months ago.
Here they are.
One of the most hotly contested NBA postseason rivalries of a generation ago is about to be rekindled.
The second-seeded Heat open defense of their Eastern Conference...
The New York Knicks don't seem overly concerned about where they start their postseason regardless of the outcome of their regular-season finale.
The Charlotte Bobcats, however, have plenty of incentive to win Thursday night to avoid capping an utterly miserable and potentially record-setting season of futility.
For the Knicks (35-30), a victory would ensure them the No. 7...
