I don’t believe in Deron Williams, but the Nets will still manage two wins. Heat in six. As for the rest of the matchups…
Jackson might not be the man on the sideline, but it is his voice that the players are going to be hearing through the mouth of Kerr.
Getting banned for life and fined was always the inevitable result of Donald Sterling’s racist diatribe, but it was the way NBA Commissioner Adam Silver did it that really needs to be applauded.
I’m sure Adam Silver and the NBA will do a great job and punish Sterling to the extent of their powers. But in the end they can’t give people what they want: the Clippers owner out of the league.
The worst thing Phil Jackson can do is repeat the Mike Woodson hiring process. Steve Kerr might very well end up being the best guy for the job, but let’s look at all the options first.
Phil Jackson was finally asked Wednesday about Carmelo Anthony returning to the Knicks on a max contract. His answer should ring like music to Knicks fans ears.
Frank Isola of the Daily News tried to drop a bombshell Wednesday morning, but the story’s own headline betrays how minor the story really is.
The most telling move the Knicks made Monday was not firing Mike Woodson. That was inevitable. It was firing Herb Williams.
Calling games for TNT, he certainly knows the game and the players in it, and seems very intelligent and measured in his opinions.
How good will Melo be in three years? If anyone has a crystal ball, this would be a great time to hand it over, because NY can’t afford another broken-down star.
Despite his plea after the Knicks’ final game of the season on Wednesday night against Toronto, the clock has reached zero on the time left in Mike Woodson’s coaching career for the Knicks.
Last year proved to be nothing more than a tease to the fan base. There’s been plenty of hurt over the years, but this year’s was of a different variety.
Perhaps it’s Phil Jackson who sees that his impact on defense overcomes his lackluster offensive game. The bottom line is that the Knicks are much better off with Shumpert still here.
Smith has played well in 2014, and his improved play is one of the reasons the Knicks are two games over .500 since the calendar flipped to 2014.
If the Knicks do end up making the playoffs it will have much more to do with a continuing Hawks collapse than anything the Knicks manage to do over the season’s final weeks.
