For Knicks fans, there might be some rumors over the next two days — but don’t expect any movement. Sometimes, that’s for the better.
Those Iman Shumpert trade reports just won’t go away.
The Knicks can still win an NBA championship if they make adjustments. They CAN beat the Heat. Will they? Let’s see if the players and coach do what’s necessary to do it.
The scary things for Knicks fans is that these weaknesses aren’t hard to see or diagnose. Every NBA team runs the pick-and-roll incessantly, and most have quick guards to get into the lane.
The Phoenix Suns are interested in acquiring Knicks guard Iman Shumpert, according to Yahoo! Sports.
The next five opponents are the Bucks, Kings, Pistons, Wizards and Timberwolves, who have a combined record of 86-137.
No one is advocating Anthony taking 12 three-pointers per game, but the Knicks will be far better off if he is doing a lot more catching and shooting, and a lot less holding, waiting, dribbling, pumping and forcing.
Whatever they do, the Knicks’ success will be determined by how they control Rondo. In many ways, their success this season will be determined by how they control the opponent’s quick guards off the dribble.
Year One of a new rivalry for Brooklyn and New York is over — barring a postseason matchup. “It’s a battle. We split. We’ll see what happens next,” said Joe Johnson.
Carmelo Anthony is ready to gain an edge in the Atlantic Division race on Martin Luther King Day as the Knicks battle the Nets at MSG.
The dog days of January and February are when the season can be decided, and the Knicks are at a crossroads which will dictate whether they are a two seed or a five seed. If they play like they did against Detroit, you have to like their chances.
Back in London and back on the basketball court, Carmelo Anthony went right back to his winning ways.
Thursday is an exciting day for Knicks fans — not only because the team is playing in London against the Pistons.
Knicks guard Iman Shumpert is expected to make his season debut for New York on Thursday, and he might even start for the Atlantic Division leaders.
If I went in-depth on all of the Knicks’ problems you’d be looking at a 10-page dissertation. The list is that long. But the Knicks have only one game in seven days, and this is valuable time that should be used to get things right.
