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.
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.
“He had 39 points!” you snap. And he was 2-for-7 in the fourth quarter, with some woeful turnovers occurring at crunch time. But why let facts interfere with idolatry? The truth is, you got Anthony at his best and the Knicks still lost.
The Knicks are writing a new chapter of history after winning their first playoff series since 2000.
Manager Mike Scioscia commented that Pujols is tolerating the pain enough to not miss a start, and he continues to produce at the plate. Yes, but he also commented that, as the season progresses, Pujols’ condition is worsening. Here we go again.
This is a huge big-picture accomplishment that no one should underestimate or take for granted — no matter what the Knicks do in the playoffs.
The 40-year-old Thomas was waived on Friday. He was sidelined last month by a stress fracture in his right foot and missed 12 games.
The Knicks will be without big men Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin on Thursday when they bring their 13-game winning streak to Chicago.
Playing with an ankle sprain certainly limits balance as well as mobility: speed, ability to quickly change direction and to jump.
The job has actually been made easier by the Knicks’ injury problems. But there’s still the matter of New York’s starting lineup — and who will get minutes with the second group off the bench.
Everything else will take care of itself if the Knicks start to guard people. It’s all that matters. It’s everything.
Woodson can’t just expect Melo to elevate his team on the floor. Anthony is a great player and a gifted scorer, but he doesn’t automatically make a team a champion. The coach needs to see — from film, numbers or gut — the writing on the wall.
General manager Glen Grunwald hopes the newly acquired Kenyon Martin can help New York achieve its goal — an NBA championship.
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.
