Doc Rivers would be the Knicks’ best coach since Pat Riley — sorry Jeff Van Gundy, but it’s true — and that hiring would make the Jason Kidd signing look like nothing more than a PR stunt.
New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was tops among the 27 baseball players on the list and No. 18 overall with $30.3 million, although he is currently facing the possibility of a 100-game suspension.
Kidd instantly made the Nets relevant, then respected, then regal.
After a notably less-than-stellar performance in the last month of the season, Knicks point guard Jason Kidd said he hasn’t watched any basketball since getting ousted by the Pacers in a devastating game 6 loss in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
The six-time All-Star is worried that general manager Glen Grunwald won’t add an additional piece in the offseason, a source told the New York Post.
NBA scoring leader Carmelo Anthony led the second team, joined by guards Russell Westbrook and Tony Parker, center Marc Gasol and forward Blake Griffin.
Anthony first hurt his left shoulder on April 14 against the Pacers. Now it seems he played the entire playoff run — 12 games — with a partially torn labrum.
On Tuesday I went over the Knicks’ financial situation for the next three years, so keep that in mind as we go through the offseason decisions that the Knicks will have to make. Here are where the pivotal points are going to be.
Amar’e Stoudemire will go into next season with $45 million left on his contract and no guarantee of a starting job. He also could remain a reserve who plays restricted minutes.
“I think we took a step forward,” Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald told Mike Francesa on Tuesday. “Obviously we didn’t get to the ultimate goal, which we’re trying to reach, but it’s not over. I like the team. I’m not discouraged.”
Big changes are not coming now. They are two years away. They do have to get better, but that will be incremental, not dramatic. The Knicks are Melo’s team, and right now, that’s a good thing.
Boeheim says Anthony has no shot at winning an NBA title with the Knicks. Or at least with these Knicks.
Some of the players were old, though the Knicks say their team is young in its development. So they feel they need time, not an overhaul, to get further next season.
As to the outcome of Anthony’s exam? Neither a wait-and-see approach nor surgery would be surprising. However, this injury is more than a warning sign and it doesn’t bode well.
Forget free agency scenarios, probability and all that. Keep it simple. Who DON’T you want to see on the team next season?
