PLAYERS: Kenyon Martin
TEAMS: New York Knicks
Looks like his knee soreness is nothing more than “being thrown into the fire” after sitting at home for so long. The Knicks need to monitor his knee because Kenyon is very important to the Knicks for the rest of the year and playoffs. Tyson is a different story. Not sure what percentage he is at, but his mobility did not look good tonight. If he needs to rest then so be it. It is not worth the risk if he cannot play at his usual level. Peter A – Knickswag The post Update: Kenyon Martin’s Knee, Tyson’s Neck and Woody’s Thoughts appeared first on Knickswag - A New York Knicks Blog - News, Rumors, and more!.

  • Knee soreness! Let me tell you a few things. A 35 year old guy who has been operated on for his knee is at risk for repeated injury and surgery all the time (look at Amare). Mark my words, he will go down or not be able to play at that level at the playoffs. Tyson Chandler cannot look at the rim w/o grimacing. Neck injury is a lifelong problem. Certainly won't heal in 2 weeks. Melo has a Baker's cyst in his knee. Good for a few weeks once drained, it's only a matter of time till it comes back. Shump is still not himself, unlikely he'll ever be. Marcus is good for a game or 2 before his foot gives up again. JKidd's back is a ticking bomb that could go off at any minute. Stat, Kurt Thomas, Sheed are all done. I'll be shocked if they can ever play at that level again. So why is this all happenning? The coaches on this team are treating the athletes like animals. They are being thrown into physical games before they heal (as in Chandler). Why? So Woody can say he won the Atlantic Division. He knows he cannot win anything else, so the only way to keep his job is to say "See I did what I promised". D'antoni did the same **** with Jeremy Lin, he ended up sitting out the playoffs with knee injury. This team's coaches, rehab people and surgeons suck, that's why young or old everybody is falling apart.

New York Knicks Weekly Bench Report – April 4th Edition

The Knicks have continued their hot streak since my last bench report, going 4-0 since last Thursday. They picked up wins against CHA, BOS, MIA, and ATL, all by an average margin of 13 points. Overall this team is on an impressive 10-game winning streak, and it’s coming at the perfect time as we near the playoffs. In their last four wins, the Knicks bench has been relatively quiet...

New York Knicks – A Moment Of Appreciation

The New York Knicks began this season as a punchline to many NBA analysts. They were a collection of mismatched, over the hill veterans put around a me-first gunner who couldn’t carry a team, the worst contract in the NBA and an impossible to coach bench scorer. Their offense was going to be ran by a downgrade from Jeremy Lin at point guard and they’d be forced to put too much...

Photo: Steve Novak Lost A Bet To Carmelo Anthony, Had To Wear Orange Warm-ups

New York Knicks teammates Carmelo Anthony and Steve Novak apparently put a little wager on the Elite Eight matchup between their alma maters this past weekend. And since Syracuse defeated Marquette to reach the Final Four, Novak had to wear an orange tracksuit on Monday. Of course, Anthony made sure there were pictures of the occasion, as he posted them to his Instagram account...

J.R. Smith Named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

By Aaron Kopperl Despite the presence of stars LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Deron Williams, and even our own Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith was able to outplay each one of them and stand out among the pack as the NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week.  While it may not sound like much of an achievement, it speaks great volumes to J.R.’s superior style of play as of late where he...

Carmelo Anthony Gets No Respect

A few nights ago Carmelo Anthony dropped 50 points on the Miami Heat (minus LBJ, D-Wade) and last night he dropped 40 on Atlanta, but know one in the league mentioned it. Yea a short media bite on ESPN and NBATV, but in the end this was not nearly as mentioned in the same breath the way Stephen Curry’s 50+ night was at MSG. Why is this this? Why does Melo not get the respect and...

Turn On The Knicks Throwback Thursday – April 4th Edition

This week’s TOK Throwback Thursday isn’t for the faint of heart. In a cruel way, Kevin Ware’s gruesome leg break has captivated America. I can’t remember the last time so many people who never expressed interest in basketball before approached me to get my take on the situation. Sadly, it has nothing to do with the beauty of the game. Ware’s injury is by far the most brutal...

Interview with Knicks Announcer Spero Dedes

By  Tommy Rothman Born and raised in New Jersey, Spero Dedes has had a very productive broadcasting career despite his youth. Spero has been the radio voice of the Los Angeles Lakers, a member of CBS Sports, and a member of NBC’s Olympic Coverage team. Spero currently serves as the radio voice of the Knicks and frequently fills in for Mike Breen as the play-by-play man on TV....

Bucks aim to break Knicks' winning streak

With the playoffs quickly approaching, Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks are looking like a force to be reckoned with. The slumping Milwaukee Bucks, in contrast, appear to be falling apart at a less than opportune time. Enjoying their longest winning streak in 19 seasons, the Knicks try for a three-game season sweep of the visiting Bucks on Friday night. One night after...
MAKES SENSE

Bosh downplays loss to Knicks

The fact that the Knicks beat an undermanned Heat team doesn't change Chris Bosh's belief that his squad could handle them in a playoff series.

Eight Straight is Great

My, how times have changed. Just fifteen days ago, every sports show airing in New York was ripping the Knicks (losers of four in a row at that time) and saying that there was no chance of them getting past the second round of the playoffs. Two weeks later, those same Knicks—winners in their last eight contests—have the Big Apple buzzing with talk of the Eastern Conference...
