There is little doubt that the road to the playoffs will pass through Miami and if the Knicks are to take down the Heat in a seven game series they will need to maximize their strengths on both ends of the floor. The biggest issue to address is if the Knicks are getting the most out of their lineups. The current starting lineup: PG – Raymond Felton, SG – Jason Kidd, SF – Iman Shumpert, PF – Carmelo Anthony, C – Tyson Chandler has been extremely effective. Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd have been in this league a long time and both have remarkably high basketball IQs.

Love & Hip-Hop K Michelle Says JR Smith Went to the Bathroom, Then Left Her at Club

Why Aren’t Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett Still Feuding?

Just five weeks ago, Carmelo Anthony hated Kevin Garnett.  We all know the story; Anthony and Garnett were going at it in a tightly contested game back on Jan. 8.  It got chippy and the two started jawing and before long, Garnett went below the belt like he normally does and allegedly said that Anthony’s wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.” Now I’m not married but if...

New York Knicks Player Power Rankings: First Half Edition

The New York Knicks’ disappointing, ugly loss last week to the Toronto Raptors is living proof of how things have changed around this franchise. The fact that I used the terms “disappointing” and “ugly” show the shift; in past years the narrative following that loss would have been “expected letdown” or “typical” or “can we fire D’Antoni already?”. While the...
