New York Knicks
Here’s something that may not sit well with Knicks fans. “What is it like to play for Thibs?” Melo recently asked a former Bulls player, according to the Daily News.
The Knicks’ star forward, who has been playing with an ailing right shoulder, might sit out Sunday night’s game against the Bulls.
Even with a 1-14 stretch in February and March, the Atlanta Hawks made the Eastern Conference field with two games remaining.
Carmelo Anthony says he’ll put his damaged shoulder to the test until the Knicks are eliminated. If they don’t get a move on and get some help he could be shut down by Saturday.
Legendary radio host Howard Stern is not a huge fan of former Knicks head coach Jeff Van Gundy. In fact, it’s safe to say that he despises him.
We have seen Carmelo Anthony break down physically in the fourth quarter before, and now it is fair to wonder if he will be himself for what remains of this regular season.
“I think it’s just troublesome to me to bring in Phil Jackson,” Brown said. “Not that he won’t be great, but let him coach … If that’s the way they want to do it, let him coach and give Woody a way to leave graciously.”
After a brutal start to the season, the Knicks battled all the way back to grab a slim lead over the Hawks for the eighth and final playoff spot. And just like that, it’s gone.
LeBron James scored 38 points and the Miami Heat survived a 3-point barrage from J.R. Smith on the way to dealing the Knicks’ playoff hopes a big blow with a 102-91 victory on Sunday.
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.
Before sharing the social network footprints left by Smith, Craig declared that the guard should be a Knick for life…
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.
“That’s what we’re aiming for. Hopefully we get there. We have everything in the world to get us there. But we just gotta control our own destiny, like I said before, and go out there and just try to take it.”
If Wednesday’s dreadful 110-81 drubbing at the hands of the rival Knicks at MSG showed us anything, it’s that Jason Kidd has much to learn no matter his record in any particular month.
The banged-up Hawks are still holding on to the final playoff spot in the East. But — get this — general manager Danny Ferry says clinching the eighth seed isn’t exactly his team’s top priority.
