By Andrew Sutton What a season it has been for the New York Knicks. From the Larry O’Brien trophy aspirations to guarantees of protests at The Garden, which were silenced by the reemergence of the ‘Zen Master’ himself. The New York Knicks made more headlines with a pitiful losing record than playoff contending teams, headlines of which weren’t always so pretty, but, they...

Knicks will have no salary cap space for 2014-15 season

We still don’t know if Carmelo Anthony will exercise his player option and opt-out of his contract with the New York Knicks, but what we do know is either way, the Knicks will have no cap space going into the 2014-15 season. Now granted, trades can be made but realistically, there simply isn’t a way the Knicks are going to be able to bring in any additional substantial talent...

Even if Carmelo Leaves Knicks Will Still Be Over Salary Cap

Phil Jackson says changes are coming for the Knicks, but they will have to be very cheap changes because according to ESPN even if Melo decides to bolt for another team, the Knicks will be in salary cap hell for one more year. The reason why? Well, there are three reasons. Andrea Bargnani ($11.5 million in 2014-15), Amar’e Stoudemire ($23.4 million) and Tyson Chandler ($14.6 million...

Exec: Surprised Knicks Didn't Do More Homework On Bargnani

The New York Knicks' trade last offseason for Andrea Bargnani is widely considered one of the worst of the past year. “Getting anything for him was a surprise,’’ a Western Conference executive said. “But you get desperate. The guy has talent, a 7-footer, mobile, his first few years he made shots. But I question his love for the game and mental makeup. I’m surprised...

Trade bust Bargnani a big reason for Knicks’ awful season

It could end mercifully and shamefully Friday in Toronto. And you could point to the Knicks’ crash beginning with Toronto, too. As the Knicks (33-45) face the Raptors (46-32) at Air Canada Centre in what could be the night that coach Mike Woodson’s team officially is eliminated from the playoffs, owner James Dolan will rue his decision to take a gamble on enigmatic 7-foot big...

A Season to Forget: the 2013-14 New York Knicks

By Max Marcilla October 30th, 2013. The Knicks were back. New York felt the exciting vibe of a new season of basketball, just one year removed from a year of success.  The woeful Milwaukee Bucks were in town, and with new acquisitions including Andrea Bargnani, Metta World Peace, Beno Udrih, and Tim Hardaway Jr., the Knicks were ready to roll.

Amar’e Holds the Key to the Knicks’ Future

The New York Knicks brought in Phil Jackson and as a fan base – so easily hypnotized by big names, we instantly thought that he could change things. And while it remains to be seen whether he will be able to make a change, that change however significant, will only happen in two years. Why is that? Well it’s because the team is being held hostage by Amar’e Stoudemire and Andrea...

Amar’e Stoudemire Wants to Retire a Knick and Fans Should Embrace That

For months and months, we’ve heard nothing but promises about free agency in 2015. That summer, Tyson Chandler, Amar’e Stoudemire, and Andrea Bargnani all come off the books, but just because the Knicks have the option of ridding themselves of their services, doesn’t necessarily mean they should. Stoudemire, in particular, expressed interest in returning in this awesome piece...

The Andrea Bargnani story: 'Since U Been Gone' (Video)

In 2006, Andrea Bargnani seemed to have a great future ahead of him when he was chosen by the Toronto Raptors as the top pick in the NBA draft. Although Bargnani played well at times, he never quite lived up to the expectations and got worse over time. Last year, Bargnani was traded to the Knicks, and now the Raptors find themselves in first place in the Atlantic Division, while...

Andrea Bargnani’s impact and why the Knicks are better without him

The date was July 10th 2013. I sat in a hotel room in Montreal viciously updating my twitter feed trying to decipher the details of a rumored trade of Andrea Bargnani to the Knicks. I didn’t want him and I knew the Knicks would give up far too much to acquire the talents of the underachieving former number one pick coming of the most disappointing season of his career. The trade...

Knicks’ Bargnani becoming afterthought without a return timeline

Andrea Bargnani, in breaking his silence, showed off his new black elbow brace, admitted his injury was “terrible’’ and said a timetable for his return from rehab is tricky because the ligament is completely torn. But even when Bargnani does return, it appears Knicks coach Mike Woodson has moved on. Woodson said the new-old small-ball lineup is likely here to stay — which...

Square pegs and round holes: Carmelo Anthony and Andrea Bargnani’s disastrous partnership

When the New York Knicks acquired Andrea Bargnani, most fans, media and observers panned the move. Some defended it. Others wanted to see how things played out. One of the main criticisms of the move (aside from the ransom the Knicks gave up, obviously) was that Bargnani didn’t seem to fit with what the Knicks did well in 2012-13, and more specifically, with Carmelo Anthony. After...
