When you think of players in the NBA who are best friends you automatically think of Lebron James and Dwayne Wade, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. These are the stars of the NBA, however what comes to mind when I say the names J.R. Smith and Steve Novak? Great bench players? Lethal three point shooters? Absolutely, but best friends? That’s right, the New York Knicks dynamic bench duo have started up quite a friendship since they both arrived in New York. However both of these players have traveled completely different paths in order to become such key cogs for the Knicks and their hopes to bringing a title to the “Big Apple”.

New York Knick Kurt Thomas is an easy fan-favorite in the Big Apple. The fact that he currently stands tall as the NBA's oldest player would be enough of a novelty reason to root for him, but there's no denying he can partially be credited with bringing the last visible sign of greatness to the Garden.In addition to being a double-double threat and an on the fence all-star...
76ers @ Knicks: MSG 7pm
The Knicks are back home, losers of four in a row and five of six. They are stumbling to regain their identity. Their effort in the road loss to the Raptors was only on display in the second and fourth quarters. It is obvious they are relying heavily on isolation basketball. They jumped out to scoring 32 points in the first quarter, but gave up just...

Despite sort of looking like Droopy Dog, Mike Woodson has managed to keep his players’ attention as Knicks coach. This is not a small accomplishment, since New York’s roster is filled with players who have had problems with other coaches in the past.
On Tuesday, Woodson offered a glimpse into one thing that might help him relate to today’s players. Woodson wore a T-shirt with...

Mike Woodson is the coach of the New York Knicks, and in case you forgot he wore his 'Coach' shirt to practice on Tuesday.
The 76ers and the Knicks got a little heated last night when Tyson Chandler pushed Spencer Hawes in the third period. Carmelo Anthony seemed to punch Hawes in the back of the head while going for a rebound, which triggered Hawes to turn around and give him an ear full. Chandler came to defend Melo, and shoved Hawes out of the way. Hawes tried to get back into his face, but referees...
