Jeremy Lin won't be making a return to the Big Apple next season, but Raymond Felton will be. After leading the Nets to back to back NBA Finals appearances in 2002 and 2003, Jason Kidd will also make a return to the tri-state area as he too dons orange and blue for the Knicks this fall.With two quality point guards ready to compete for major minutes, is it obvious which one should start?Since he signed with the Knicks, it's been widely assumed Kidd would serve as a backup floor general (originally, of course, to Lin). Because he's led the Knicks' offense before (and helped make Amar'e Stoudemire look like an M.V.P. too), Felton's been regarded as the team's starting point guard for the upcoming season.But is it safe to make these distinctions just yet? In a recent interview with KnicksNow.com, Kidd talked about playing alongside guys like Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, and Tyson Chandler. Saying he hopes to STAT's new Steve Nash, the future Hall of Fame...

Knicks Raymond Felton ready for a big season

Now, he is back in New York and ready to show people he can still play. Felton will be playing point guard for the departed Jeremy Lin. The Knicks also brought in Jason Kidd but Felton is still the unquestioned starter. Raymond Felton wants...

Kidd's New Era

The Knicks have now got a NBA Champion & a 10x all star back in the city. Jason Kidd has always displayed his ability to be able to just to any environment. This is now his 5th and hopefully final stop in his journey to bring a championship back to the city. The 39 year old superstar point guard has been through it all, but is definitely ready to get back on the court with...

Jason Kidd Might Still Be Capable of Helping Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire Coexist With Knicks

At 39 years old, Jason Kidd probably is not looking to become the next great New York Knicks point guard. Eighteen years into his NBA career, Kidd would be content to merely help the Knicks' apparently incompatible stars find a way to play together. And that could make him the perfect conductor of an otherwise dysfunctional orchestra. The Knicks were a mess last season, as they...

Steve Nash vs. Jason Kidd: Who’s better?

  I can vividly remember playing pickup basketball as a kid. I was horrible back then. I had no athletic ability; I couldn’t jump, run or shoot.  The best attribute of my game was passing simply because I had no other options.  I can remember listening to guys shoot the ball, yelling “Kobe” as the ball goes through the net.  I used to wish that I had that ability.  I practiced...

Knicks' Carmelo Anthony wants team to have a gold-medal mindset

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony told the New York Post that he wants the team to have the same mentality Team USA had during its gold-medal winning effort at the London Olympics.   “I’m excited to get this thing going,” Anthony said. “Especially coming off this run we just had with the USA team. To be able to put that team together and still be able to accomplish...

Jason Kidd calls Rajon Rondo best point guard in the NBA

Jason Terry signed as a free agent to be a Boston Celtic for this upcoming season. In doing so he left the Dallas Mavericks, the team he had been with his whole career. Terry is leaving one great point guard to play with another. His former point guard Jason Kidd had some very high praise for Terry’s new point guard Rajon Rondo. Kidd also left Dallas and will now be...

Scal on the verge of becoming a coach

Boston loves Scal.  Of course, we didn’t always.  People tend to forget that early on in Scal’s tenure here, a lot of people hated him.  But they were under some impression that him popping wide open 3′s as a result of being set up by Jason Kidd would continue without him when he joined a crappy team.  People also tend to forget he was part of two losing seasons in Boston...

Assessing The Job Glen Grunwald Did For Knicks This Offseason

The NBA offseason has reached the utmost of slow points of the summer, but luckily for the Knicks, the team can rest assured knowing the roster is more or less set for the upcoming season.Despite allowing Jeremy Lin to sign with the Rockets, thus ending "Linsanity" in the Big Apple, Knicks' General Manager Glen Grunwald still did a masterful job filling out the team...

Your Morning Dump...where management has turned a corner

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Personally, I think the Red Sox would have traded Gonzo, Beckett and Crawford for a used set of Vin Scully's headphones and been totally fired up. Thankfully, GM Ben Cherington (ironically, a Theo protégé...

Thursday Afternoon Links, Featuring Jalen Rose & Master P

The Basketball Jones: Jalen Rose once starred in a Master P music video.  So did Stromile Swift’s Memphis Grizzlies jersey.  All of this inspired me to do some research on Master P’s brief preseason stint with the Raptors.  It seems that Charles Oakley wasn’t too keen on the whole experiment. Youtube: A couple videos of Jeremy Lin and David Lee playing pickup ball in Taiwan...

GreenLight Madness: Seed #12 vs Seed #21

In the previous matchup we saw KG’s debut in the tournament.  Today’s matchup features a much louder play from KG, perhaps ranking number one on the jump-out-of-your-seat-and-scream-YEEEAAAHHHHHH play list.  KG played several monster games for the Celtics this season, but not many singlular plays were quite this loud, especially coming against the Heat, in Miami, in a clutch...
