Schmeelk: The Knicks Are Too Old? Please, Don’t Let Stats Deceive You

Charles Barkley On Amar’e, Carmelo: ‘It’s Not Going To Work, It’s Not Going To Click’

“They’re both very good offensive players, but I don’t think all of a sudden they’re going to become great rebounders and great defenders,” Barkley said. “(The Knicks) don’t rebound the ball well and they’re not a good defensive team.”

Keidel: Knicks Kidding Around

Schmeelk: Are Knicks Slipping Into Same Old Mistakes?

In many ways, the Knicks are in a situation reminiscent of the Isiah Thomas days. They aren’t very young, are capped out and don’t own many of their own draft picks. There’s one big difference, however.
