Since Kidd single-handedly turned around the Nets franchise upon his trade to New Jersey in 2002, they owe him. If there’s some capacity in which Kidd could fit in with the club’s long-term plans, it’s worth the discussion. Just not as head coach.
Pacers coach Frank Vogel walked into Monday’s practice with a simple message for players as they adapt to Miami’s new wrinkle – using LeBron James in the post.
Whichever players are on the court for the Knicks when they try to save their season Thursday night, coach Mike Woodson just wants them to shoot with confidence.
With more than 50 wins for the New York Knicks and more than 27 points per game for himself, the numbers back Melo up. The Knicks won a division title, and Anthony will add the scoring title after the regular season ends Wednesday.
Less than 24 hours after Anthony was given a one-game suspension for Monday’s confrontation with Kevin Garnett, the Knicks were preparing to face Indiana without their leading scorer.
Led by Jeremy Lin, the Knicks defeated the Indiana 102-88. New York improves to 3-0 under new coach Mike Woodson.
Instead of being without two starters, it looks as if the New York Knicks could be at full strength when they open a home-and-home series against the sputtering Indiana Pacers on Sunday night at Madison Square Garden.
