Since returning from his irritating knee injury, Amar’e Stoudemire is playing some of the best basketball we’ve seen, but how long will that last for the New York Knicks?
There were times earlier in the season that Stoudemire looked old, slow and not involved in the games. Will he revert back to this?
Maybe the Knicks should aim-high and sell at his highest potential?... Read more

Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire is catching some flak for tweeting that former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner's manifesto is "interesting" and "a must read."
Prior to the season starting, any New York Knicks fan would have signed up for their current situation at the All-Star Break. It is hard to complain about 32-18, a 2.5 game lead in the Atlantic Division and still being in striking distance of Miami for the #1 seed (4 games back). Beyond that, Amare Stoudemire has had a relatively seamless transition into becoming a bench player,...
It’s no secret that the Knicks are notoriously slow starters in the 1st quarter. It has become a growing trend where the Knicks open up with a dreadful 1st quarter, play a good 2nd quarter to cut the halftime deficit to a reasonable margin, trade leads in the 3rd and then hope to gain an edge in the 4th quarter and pull away. Although the Knicks are statistically one of the...
Sources: Knicks showing strong interest in Phx’s Jermaine O’Neal…Phx also talking w/Toronto about moving Sebastian Telfair

Depending on what they have to give up, this would be a solid pick up for NY. Jermaine O’Neal is a veteran who is having a very good year, averaging 7 points and 4.5 rebounds in 16...
Imagine yourself the General Manager of the NY Knicks. Sitting behind the desk and in charge of one of the most powerful teams in the NBA. If you look over the roster and look at your positives and negatives, you can see that 2 glaring needs are glowing. NY needs a solid big to help the injured frontline and most importantly, a back-up point guard who can score and create. This is...
Carmelo Anthony and Diddy hosted a party the Ayva Center in Houston Saturday with Chris Brown, Sean Kingston and more coming out to enjoy the night.
I have to be perfectly frank with you, as a “Player” I have never been that impressed with JR Smith, but as a “Playa” he seems to know what he is doing.
From Tahiry, Rihanna and others, JR is the NBA version of Black Dynamite. K Michelle was singing love songs to him and saying she would do anything to sleep with him again, on various public forums. Some guys might...
Sometimes, stupid is as stupid does…
Stephon Marbury proves that theory correct. The ex-NBA star evidently didn’t understand that if you can read it and sign it, it’s a binding contract.
Marbury promised his then chef Thurayyah Mitchell and jump off $900,000 dollars to keep their affair private. Mitchell had the agreement in writing, and filed a lawsuit against Marbury after...
With the All-Star break shortly coming to an end, I’m taking a look at each player on the roster and will evaluate their production thus far into the season. The Knicks started out the season as one of the few surprise teams in the league, once leading all of the Eastern Conference before coming back down to earth. They are currently the number two seed in...
When asked if it is false that Iman Shumpert and his camp are not content with the Knicks, agent Happy Walters replied: "Yes. Totally false."
The Knicks have a depth need in the frontcourt given the injuries to Rasheed Wallace and Marcus Camby.
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...
It seems the issues between Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony have been resolved.
The two Eastern Conference All-Stars teamed up to make fun of TNT announcer Craig Sager‘s turquoise suit. Sager asked Anthony about the spat between the Knick and Celtic at practice, and Anthony pulled Garnett over to help him answer the question.
“Honey Nut Cheerios” were not mentioned, but Garnett...
With both veteran big men shelved due to bummed hoofs suffered long before Barack Obama’s second term in the Oval Office, Marcus Camby and Rasheed Wallace finally completed an entire practice as New York Knicks on Tuesday. Hence, for the … Continue reading →
