Frontcourt Future Looking Bright

KNICKS 87, PACERS 81 Jeff Hornacek didn’t say anything most of us were already thinking in regards to the Knicks playoff reality at this point in the season, but what he did say was how important these remaining games are for the new priority: next season. Hornacek pointed to “some of our other guys” who […]

Frustrated KP Longing for Better Results

NETS 120, KNICKS 112 Kristaps Porzingis might have reached his breaking point. It’s been long established that he is the future of the franchise, so with that in mind, it was time for him to start taking inventory and ownership of his environment. “The whole situation is tough,” he said with an expression of anger […]

Knicks Let One Slip Away in Philly

SIXERS 105, KNICKS 102 This time when Carmelo Anthony missed, he grinned. It wasn’t that he was amused, but perhaps he finally resigned to the will of this season. Hours before his turnaround fadeaway jumper against a double-team bounced out with 14 seconds left and the Knicks trailing by one, before he was caught watching […]

Melo Thriving in Triangle Offense

KNICKS 110, 76ERS 109 Derrick Rose called the Triangle Offense “random basketball” and made it clear he isn’t comfortable with the system Phil Jackson wants to be the identity of his team. That’s an alarming admission by a player who has the second-highest usage rate on the team. But he’s not entirely alone. It’s been […]

Knicks Move Forward After Trade Deadline

Carmelo Anthony was so confident that he would remain a Knick after Thursday that he napped through the 3 p.m. trade deadline. With a no-trade clause, he had the final say on anything and, he said, there was nothing to consider. “Obviously,” he said, “nothing was worth bringing to the table.” There were reports of […]

Knicks Searching for Answers

LAKERS 121, KNICKS 107 The day after, the Knicks had “a much-needed hard practice,” according to Courtney Lee. “It got a little chippy … ┬áThat’s what we needed.” And that was just on the court. In the realm of social media, team president Phil Jackson made his first comments in over a month when he […]
