KNICKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

New York Knicks Star J.R. Smith Claims 'Black Friday' Linked to Slavery

J.R. Smith must be hating social media right now. The New York Knicks guard went on Instagram Tuesday night and posted something that he likely wishes now he never did. He probably thought he was being controversial and thought provoking, but that was far from the case. Instead he pretty much made a fool out of himself.What did he do? He linked the busiest shopping day of the year...

Perennial Idiot J.R. Smith Associates Black Friday With Slavery

  The New York Knicks had an off day on Tuesday, giving J.R. Smith all the time in the world to do something stupid. He delivered in a big way, attempting to give a history lesson on how Black Friday “stemmed from slavery.” Smith posted this blog gold onto Instagram before eventually deleting it. Yeah…or maybe the term “Black Friday” was coined by some Philadelphia...

James Harden makes pass to Donatas Montiejunas through Amare Stoudemire’s legs

While Harden is horrific defensively and I did claim that we’ll probably remember that defensive stand more than anything he did in his game against the Knicks, he did make a pretty fancy play on the offensive end. Harden found a cutting Donatas Montiejunas and made a pass through Amare Stoudemire’s legs: That pass was pretty pro there, Harden. *** James Harden pic courtesy...

Why the Knicks and Thunder should consider a Reggie Jackson for Iman Shumpert + assets trade

After just a handful of games into the 2014-2015 NBA season, the New York Knicks and Oklahoma City Thunder have struggled out of the gate. While expectations of the Knicks weren’t all that high to begin with, the Thunder were expected to be one of the premier teams in a loaded Western Conference before injuries dashed those hopes. And at 3-12, the Thunder are six games out of...

New York Knicks: Bounce back win

It was closer than I expected, but the New York Knicks were able to hold on to beat the still winless Philadelphia 76ers 91-83. The win snapped a two game losing streak for the Knicks as they hop on the road Monday to start a three game road trip.   Saturday’s game was the season debut for Jose Calderon and I was happy with what I saw in his 21 minutes of play. He only had three...

Knicks 91, Sixers 83: Game Recap

The Knicks finally got a easy win this season, albeit against the worst excuse of a tanking franchise in the NBA that is the Philadelphia 76ers. The final score was much closer than the game actually felt, as the Knicks were once up by as much as 20 points in the third quarter. The Knicks also welcomed back Jose Calderon to the starting lineup and he instantly made a difference in...

Turn On The Knicks Six Pack – Down But Not Out…Yet

In New York sports, the sky is always falling, but the Knicks aren’t a complete lost cause. At least not yet. - We all knew a slow start was coming, and even at 3-10, the Knicks aren’t dead in the water just yet. Not surprisingly, it only takes 13 games for New Yorkers to start welcoming the draft lottery, but in the way-too-early-to-be-projected playoff race, the Knicks sit...

Derek Fisher reportedly had to challenge Knicks to play hard

The New York Knicks have had a dreadful start to the 2014-2015 NBA season under the new regime of Phil Jackson and coach Derek Fisher. One could point to last year when many analysts and fans questioned whether the Knicks were even trying out on the court – in which later Tim Hardaway Jr. confirmed everyone’s suspicions. This hangover has carried into New York’s first 13...

The Knicks Are The First Crappy NBA Team To Get Booted From A National TV Appearance

A common complaint among NBA fans is the aggravating practice of giving popular, yet woefully under-performing teams national television appearances. For example, everyone knew heading into the season the neither Lakers nor Knicks team would be any good, but it didn’t stop the schedule makers from giving them 36 combined national television appearances.

New York Knicks: Growing pains

Another game, another loss for the New York Knicks. They aren’t Philadelphia, but this six game losing streak is only one game worse than the 76ers’ 0-7 start. There are a lot of things wrong right now, but I will highlight the top three things I think the Knicks need to change in order to snap this streak. 1) Find a true starting point guard.

New York Knicks: Time to point the finger

The start of the Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher era has not started the way Knicks’ fans had hoped, and I am very disappointed myself.
