New York Knicks News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
About New York Knicks
Price for a Beer
3/25/15: Just a few more weeks left in the regular season, Knicks fans, and then it will finally be over. There is little chance that New York will finish with 20 wins this season. And that has to be frustrating. On the other hand, as the losses increase, so do the odds of the first overall pick in the NBA Draft. Of course, the Knicks could pull a blockbuster trade and try to get Kevin Durant from the Oklahoma City Thunder. They would probably have to give up that first round pick, but would instantly get better with Durant at the helm of the offense. That could be fun.
3/18/15: Since it is about time for March Madness and the University of Kentucky seemingly cannot be beaten, it is also time for the annual questions of if the best college basketball team could beat the worst pro team. Of course, all of this is nonsense, but gives media types something to scream about for a day. Speaking of screaming, Knicks czar Phil Jackson wants his coaching protégé Derek Fisher to do more of that. He wants to see some emotion, rather than the patient, stoic façade that Fisher normally has. Specifically, he wants to see Fisher get in refs' faces and get thrown out of a couple of games. Anything to leave early.
3/11/15: For those New York fans that are rooting for more losses in order to improve the odds of getting the number one overall pick (and first pick in each round) of the NBA Draft, then this is good news. The Knicks are leading the race to lose - currently beating out the Philadelphia 76ers and the Minnesota Timberwolves. There are only about 30 games left in the season and this race looks like it will come down to the wire. Having the most losses does not guarantee the top pick in the draft, but it certainly improves the odds. Considering the talent level on the Knicks right now, they could use the next superstar on their roster.
3/4/15: While there is very little good news for the New York Knicks on the court, there is worse news off the court. Former player Anthony Mason was said to be 'improving' after suffering multiple heart attacks in recent weeks. As of last week, Mason still could not speak, but he could hear and respond with blinks and head shaking. Sadly, he passed away over last weekend. Mason played 13 NBA seasons but was a fan favorite in New York. He also won the NBA's Sixth Man Award in 1995 as a member of the Miami Heat.
2/25/15: There are still a few more weeks before actual spring training games begin in baseball, so until then, it is fair game to open up on the New York Knicks. Carmello Anthony has been shut down for the season and the Knicks bought out Amar'e Stoudemire's contract. So it looks like the Knicks are all-in on losing right now (though the 76ers have upped the ante with their re-tanking bid). Additionally, Knicks president Phil Jackson is coming under fire with some saying that he only took the job for the money. In any case, the race to the lottery is on and the Knicks have the clubhouse lead.
2/18/15: Shut it down, everybody. Shut it down. That looks to be the case with Carmello Anthony this season. He missed the last several games before the All Star break and looks to be shut down for the season now. Anthony reportedly needs knee surgery and that would keep him out of service until next season. Of course, this is not a surprise to anyone who follows basketball. And the Knicks probably do not mind, since it gives them the chance to lose more games and potentially end up with greater odds for a high draft pick.
2/11/15: With the New York Knicks not going anywhere this season except near the top of the line for most ping pong balls come the NBA Draft Lottery, the team has to find ways to stay in the news that do not involve terms like "another loss" or "James Dolan". They may have found one. Apparently, Knicks president and NBA coaching legend Phil Jackson claims he would endorse a 4-point shot. He is not the first to suggest it, but may be the biggest name to endorse it. Such a rule change is not on near horizon, but with voices like Jackson behind it, there may be a shot in the next few years.
2/5/15: The New York Knicks continue to struggle this season and will end up with pretty good odds of landing the first overall pick in the NBA Draft come June. While their on-court play has been uninspired at best, an interesting story about the their championship teams of the 1970's came to surface in the wake of the New England Patriots Deflategate scandal. Marv Albert and Walt Frazier said that former Knick and current U.S. Senator Bill Bradley used to deflate game balls when he was on the bench. He would hide a needle on his body, then have the other players surround him so he could covertly take out air from the balls. So politics seems like an easy career transition now.
1/28/15: The Knicks, somehow, nearly doubled their season win total in the past week with three straight victories. That brought them up to eight wins on the season, tying the them with the Philadelphia 76ers. That means that the Minnesota Timberwolves now have the fewest wins in the league. Rookie coach Derrick Fisher may be getting the hang of coaching, claiming he is now understanding how much he has to motivate his players every game, and recollecting on that not being the case when he came into the league. Maybe that is a shot a Millennials and their work ethic, but at the same time, it is tough to motivate any team that is winning only 18% of their games.
1/21/15: The New York Knicks expanded their market by playing in London last week. The Knicks may have been the prized team to travel across the Atlantic, but it was the Milwaukee Bucks that won 95-79. What does that mean? For starters, they are now closer to 20 straight losses than 10. It also means that they are bad on multiple continents, so the jokes can be international now (sorry, not counting Toronto for this). The Knicks are now getting criticized from all corners and many, including Charles Barkley, are questioning the use of the triangle offense in New York.
1/14/15: For all the talk about the Philadelphia 76ers tanking the season, the reality is that the New York Knicks are in a far worse position. The team had lost a franchise record 15 straight games as of last weekend and there does not seem to be any relief in sight. In fact, the 76ers now have two more wins than the Knicks, who are tied with the Minnesota Timberwolves for fewest wins in the league with five. Additionally, there is talk about sitting down Carmello Anthony for the rest of the season so he can get perfectly healthy (and ensure even more losses, which equals more ping pong balls in the draft lottery).
1/7/15: The narrative in New York remains the same - the team is weak in personnel and they are not understanding (or executing) the triangle offense. That lethal combination means that the Knicks have lost nine in a row and are just one win better than the Philadelphia 76'ers. At least Carmello Anthony is saying all the right things. Now he is even giving support and respect to his coach, Derek Fisher. He credited Fisher for keeping the team together during this mess. For Anthony to back Fisher has greater importance, because that could keep the locker room tight through the end of the season.
12/3/14: A little more than a month into the regular season and the Triangle offense is not working in New York yet. Through last Saturday, the Knicks have won only four of their 17 games. They may have hit a new low last weekend as they were blown out by the Oklahoma City Thunder 105-78. It was the return of Russell Westbrook for the Thunder, but even still, New York was non-competitive. Amar'e Stoudemire ripped his team for the lack of intensity. The Knicks are searching for answers and a healthy Carmelo Anthony. The only real hope is that the East is weak and Carmelo can spark some life in the team.
11/19/14: Phil Jackson was a fine coach for decades in the NBA - all those championship rings tell the story. Part of being a good coach is deflecting attention from a struggling team. Jackson did just that (as the head of the organization and not the coach) when he publicly took exception to Commissioner Adam Silver's comments about the Knicks transitioning to the famed 'Triangle Offense'. More likely than actually being upset, he may have just wanted people to stop noticing that the team has won only two games, barely above the 76ers, and this was before they lost to the rebuilding Orlando Magic.
11/12/14: The Knicks started the season nicely with a win over Cleveland and victories in two of their first three games. Since then it has been a three game losing streak. That includes a 110-99 beating at the hands of the Brooklyn Nets where Carmello Anthony missed 15 of his 20 shots. He admits that he is not comfortable yet with the new Triangle Offense. He really is struggling, shooting only 28% (18-64) during the losing streak. The team is only six games into their new system and it will take time for the players to learn and get comfortable with the new scheme.
11/5/14: The NBA is pretty good at creating intriguing matchups made specifically for TV. They did it on the opening week by pitting LeBron's homecoming against the always popular New York Knicks. Those that expected King James and the new-look Cavs to win in a rout were sorely disappointed as Carmello Anthony and Knicks ruined homecoming. The Cavs may develop into the best team in the East, but it was the Knicks that looked more like a team in the 95-90 victory. And give Carmello credit, he nailed a three pointer in the final seconds, over LeBron, to seal the game.

This was the season when the New York Knicks were able to overcome much of the adversity that had hounded them since the arrival of Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire. Injuries kept the powerful Stoudemire out of the front court, and despite the addition of Tyson Chandler, a talented and reliable defender, the Knicks generally seemed to be one piece short of really making a NBA Finals run in the postseason. This season, however, the New York Knicks moved Anthony to power forward, revealing the ability of their roster to maximize their offensive potential using small ball spacing and pace. 'Melo thrived even though he was moved off of the wing, leading the NBA in scoring and ably defending a number of the leagues best interior players. A season of preparing for those kind of defensive battles have benefited the Knicks so far, as both the Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers are known as tough defensive teams.
What may be giving the New York Knicks players and Madison Square Garden crowd the most confidence, however, are their perceived chances to be a legitimate contender all the way through the Eastern Conference and into the NBA Finals. Unless the depleted Chicago Bulls provide a massive upset, the Knicks would have to get through the defending NBA Champion Miami Heat in order to compete in the 2013 NBA Finals. The Knicks wouldn't walk into a series like that intimidated, though, because they beat LeBron James and the Heat three out of four times they faced during the regular season. The interior presence of Chandler is hard for any team, including the somewhat smaller Heat, to handle, and the hot hands of Anthony, JR Smith, and a deep bench of talented three point shooters has Manhattan buzzing for their most legitimate NBA Finals run since they lost the title to the San Antonio Spurs 14 years ago. They've overcome a previous streak of two straight first-round exits, and not the New York Knicks are shooting for the NBA Finals with all the barrels.
