Tim Hardaway Jr.
There’s an adjustment that has to happen, but as coach Derek Fisher and president Phil Jackson have both said, the team isn’t making basketball plays when the system affords the opportunities.
Greg Monroe had 23 points and 18 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons held off the New York Knicks 98-95 Wednesday night for their first win of the season.
I’m landing the Knicks at 43-39, getting the eighth and final seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. It will be a good start to the Jackson and Fisher era.
Here are the 10 things that will determine the Knicks’ success this season, in order of importance.
Most of New York’s players are what they are: one-dimensional guys. Shumpert, Hardaway and Larkin can be more than that.
Jared Sullinger scored 23 points to help the Boston Celtics beat the New York Knicks 106-86 in a preseason game on Wednesday night.
Chosen 11th overall in the draft, Michael Carter-Williams was the only unanimous selection to the first team, which also includes Victor Oladipo, Trey Burke, Mason Plumlee and Tim Hardaway, Jr.
If Steve Kerr ends up as the next head coach of the Knicks we won’t have to worry about his opinions of Tim Hardaway Jr. It’s clear he loves the guy.
Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 20 points and the New York Knicks, a night after being eliminated from playoff contention, beat the Chicago Bulls 100-89 on Sunday.
Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 28 points as the New York Knicks defeated Philadelphia 123-110 on Monday night, sending the 76ers to their 17th straight loss.
Carmelo Anthony scored 30 points, but the Knicks fell to the Grizzlies 95-87 at Madison Square Garden on Saturday.
To say the Knicks’ guards have been bad this year would be an understatement. To call them the worst collection of guards in the NBA would be accurate. It’s that horrid.
Here’s the issue: Lowry is a free agent after this season. If the Knicks want to re-sign him long-term it will probably cost them around eight million dollars a season, give or take. That type of contract will make it nearly impossible for the Knicks to bring in another max player in the 2015 offseason if Carmelo Anthony signs a max extension this summer.
James Dolan, angry with details being leaked, put the kibosh on a trade proposal Thursday that could have landed Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry, according to the Daily News.
