Everyone around the NBA is obsessed with copying Miami with the three superstar model, but the fact of the matter is that formula hasn’t proven to win anything. Instead, the Knicks found someone to fit their greatest need.
The New York Knicks have acquired Tyson Chandler from the Dallas Mavericks and sent Ronny Turiaf to the Washington Wizards in a three-team trade.
It appears Ronny Turiaf is about to follow Deron Williams’ lead and play overseas.
If the Knicks want to win this series they need to play their A game offensively, and be decent on defense.
Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire have to play well, but their jobs are made so much easier by a point guard that can set them up. Billups is the lynchpin that holds it all together and it should be no surprise.
You might as well plop down Mike D’Antoni and the rest of the Knicks down on the island with Jack, Sawyer, Hurley, Ben, Locke and the rest of the crew. They are LOST.
Knicks president Donnie Walsh admitted to the NY Post on Sunday that he “didn’t expect” to see his team falter with Carmelo Anthony. So what do the Knicks need?
I have some breaking news. Donnie Walsh is heading on vacation for the next seven days, and he’s leaving me in charge. Please, hold the celebrations to a minimum.
Timofey Mozgov had season highs of 23 points and 14 rebounds in his first appearance since Jan. 9, and the Knicks beat the Pistons 124-106 on Sunday night.
Danilo Gallinari is back in the starting lineup Monday for the Knicks, who are without injured big man Ronny Turiaf.
For one night, it was the New York Knicks’ defense that stood out. Amar’e Stoudemir’e had 23 points and eight rebounds, Raymond Felton added 17 points and 14 assists, and New York beat the Portland Trail Blazers 100-86 on Tuesday.
Perhaps the one glaring weakness of this Knicks roster has been a lack of depth. That deficiency has been hidden fairly well with the starters playing well and Mike D’Antoni holding the rotation to eight for most of the season.
Whenever you abandoned the Knicks, it may be time to return, to emerge from your cave and wipe the crust from your heavily blinking eyes. There may again be a basketball team in New York City.
Whenever the Knicks won a game in the last ten years it was a bit of a surprise. Now, a loss to a bad team would really be a disappointment.
It’s nice the Knicks beat the Sacramento Kings Wednesday night, but it doesn’t mean anything if the win doesn’t turn into any sort of consistent play and success.
