Those comparisons seemed to have gotten to Felton who told the New York Post ahead of tonight's match up in Houston that he does not really get the comparisons between he and Lin, both because of their resume and style of play. We’re...

For the Knicks, bringing in a veteran (and Hall of Fame bound) player like Jason Kidd was necessary on many levels.After spending the second half of last season riding or dying on Jeremy Lin, it was obvious a stable floor general was crucial. Kidd represents a number of things Lin does not.

Season Preview: New York Knicks

The Knicks are an enigma wrapped in a mystery.

Now, the Knicks seem to be going in this direction where they acquire every veteran in the league, with the hope to acquire a championship. Even with an tumultuous offseason...
