Tim Hardaway Jr. proving he’s worth $71 million to Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks could’ve done worse with their cap space last July. If Phil Jackson were still around, he would have been spent it all on aging point guard George Hill to run the triangle. Instead, acting general manager Steve Mills, before his promotion to full-time president, gave it to Tim Hardaway Jr. — a four-year,...

Knicks are loving their offense without Phil Jackson

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LeBron James paid a backhanded compliment to Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek for his newfangled, high-speed offense that’s not the triangle. And Hornacek didn’t tip-toe around the issue any longer, that former president Phil Jackson’s methodical system offense has been completely scuttled, though scouts say they still run some triangle actions on post-ups. “We’re not running...

Enes Kanter, LeBron feud rolls on with ‘King’ dispute

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks center Enes Kanter was at it again Tuesday, swatting with gusto another bold proclamation from LeBron James.

Knicks’ emerging star came up a lot bigger than Jeff Hornacek

NY Post (Marc Berman) — While Kristaps Porzingis is the face of the franchise, center Enes Kanter is now the heart and soul of the franchise. Hence, Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek’s decision to bench Kanter for the final 3:18 was the wrong one with right intentions. In a conundrum, Hornacek put in Lance Thomas over Kanter to combat Cleveland’s smallball,...

It took LeBron James to slow down Kristaps Porzingis

NY Post (Marc Berman) — It was a rare off night for Kristaps Porzingis. Maybe it was LeBron James. Maybe it was the new contraption on his elbow. With James hounding him at times, Porzingis fell short of his now-usual 30 points. And for the first time he wore a long white right elbow sleeve for his bursitis, a condition...

Knicks rookie refused to back down against LeBron James

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Frank Ntilikina, all 190 pounds of him, went to grab the basketball to inbounds late in the first quarter Monday. A 6-foot-8, 250-pound human piece of chiseled granite known as LeBron James stood in his way. So Ntilikina shoved James. Twice. Sort of had the same effect as a seagull’s wing brushing the Rock of...

Tim Hardaway’s best night yet overshadowed by brutal loss

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — At some point, it will set in for Tim Hardaway Jr. that the Knicks blew a 23-point lead and lost to the Cavs Monday. “Twenty-three?” he said meekly. Yep, count ’em 23. But to Hardaway, this still so-early Knicks season is about forging identities, working and getting better. So yeah, the 104-101 loss to Cleveland...

Knicks collapse in epic fashion as LeBron James takes over late

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks thought they had left the Cavaliers and LeBron James for dead late in the third quarter with what appeared to be a stirring, we-won’t-back-down performance. Instead, on a night he was booed relentlessly for his off-putting remarks about rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina, James grabbed back the night. The Knicks suffered an epic...

It’s the little things Porzingis does that drop Bernard King’s jaw

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Bernard King sat on the Garden’s celebrity row Tuesday, when the Knicks hosted Charlotte, and said he’s never seen anything like it. One of many, King is in awe of Kristaps Porzingis, who is off to the best start in Knicks history after a dozen games, averaging 30.4 points. An offensive technician, King, one of...

NY Post (Marc Berman, Shari Logan, Max Jaeger) — A 10-year-old Queens boy was a slam-dunk for class president thanks to a big assist from his new BFF — Knick star Enes Kanter.
