A rep for Kristaps Porzingis is saying that the Knicks forward’s Twitter account was hacked yesterday, the reason for a since-deleted post reading “LA Clippers” with three smiley faces.
Dwight Howard is suddenly unhappy with his situation in Atlanta, and the Hawks probably wouldn’t be averse to trading him if the right deal came along. But does anyone really want Dwight?
For anyone masochistic enough to still care about the Knicks, this weekend felt a lot like rock bottom. President Phil Jackson spent Friday afternoon publicly alienating his star player Carmelo Anthony. He also stated that no Knicks player—including Kristaps Porzingis—was off the bargaining table, questioned the value…
It’s been a long season for the Knicks—bizarre strategy, internal drama, messy trade conversation, a terrible record—and with Phil Jackson signing on for two more years as team president, the immediate future looks as if it might only hold more of the same. Kristaps Porzingis isn’t having it.
“We have not been able to win with him on the court at this time,” Knicks president Phil Jackson said of Carmelo Anthony in a press conference this afternoon. “I think the direction of our team is that he is a player who would be better off somewhere else, using his talents where he can win or chase that championship.”
ESPN reported earlier today that the Knicks and team president Phil Jackson re-upped for another two years. Coincidentally, a few hours later, Charley Rosen of FanRag Sports published a postmortem of the team’s terrible 2016-17 season.
Swallow all your hopes, Knicks fans: ESPN reports that Phil Jackson has been signed for the last two years of his contract as team president. Both Jackson and the team had the option to break after the third year, but owner James Dolan has apparently followed through on his public promise to ride with the old…
Joakim Noah’s tenure on the Knicks has resembled an expensive rehabilitation project for a large, ungainly, nearly extinct bird. (Except the bird also does drugs he’s not supposed to, and is somewhat refreshing in his openness about the whole thing.)
By now it feels like a past life. But not long ago, games between the Timberwolves and Knicks were among the small pleasures of the early NBA season: heated clashes between two flawed teams that still tried hard, and more importantly, sported the NBA’s two most intriguing sophomores, both seven-footers with range. In…
Mike Hamersky, a self-described New York Knicks superfan and season ticket holder from Astoria, claims that team owner James Dolan got in his face last night outside Madison Square Garden and screamed mean things.
The Knicks’ sad season got even sadder today, as the team announced that Derrick Rose would be out for the rest of the year with a torn left meniscus.
This year has been a trying time for Melo.
Joakim Noah will be suspended 20 games for violating the NBA’s anti-drug policy—reportedly for unknowingly taking an over-the-counter supplement, which is currently banned by the league but would no longer be punished under the next season’s new collective bargaining agreement.
Anything good that is ever created inside Madison Square Garden will eventually be dragged down 34th Street and dumped into the Hudson River, where it will somehow catch on fire. Remember when the Knicks were feisty and it was fun to sit around talking about how great Kristaps Porzingis was? That feels like 100 years…
The Knicks tried something a little different for their game against the Warriors on Sunday afternoon. (They still lost, so some things remained comfortingly stable.) For the entirety of warm-ups and the first half, there was no in-arena entertainment, no music blaring during timeouts, no organ playing, no hype vids,…
Phil Jackson wasn’t content to just watch all his major offseason moves combust in his face. Instead, he took all these failures as evidence that he needed to double-down on his personal fetish, the triangle.
