Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie wants Christmas game against Knicks or Celtics

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — Stuck in the doldrums for years, the Nets were essentially banished from national TV games, much less being holiday headliners.

So much for Knicks’ ‘culture’ talk

NY Post (Marc Berman) — In case you don’t recall, the Knicks entered July with nine free agents of their own.

Westgate SuperBook will release its figures Sunday and will have the Knicks’ Over/Under for wins at 28.5. The Kyrie Irving/Kevin Durant Nets will come...

Bobby Portis eyes Sixth Man of the Year as Knicks’ bench leader

Trae Young has some advice for Knicks’ RJ Barrett

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — Knicks fans went into the draft lottery this spring pining for Zion Williamson and came out of the draft instead with his Duke teammate, R.J.
