Time running out for Knicks enigma to prove he should be back

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS — Super Mario doesn’t lack for confidence in himself despite a season that lacks victories. On the surface, it also lacks personal growth. Call him naive or just a pie-eyed optimist, but Knicks forward Mario Hezonja isn’t deterred about having a big NBA future — perhaps even with the 13-54 Knicks. After missing the...

Knicks go cold versus short-handed Timberwolves as slide continues

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MINNEAPOLIS — The Timberwolves were without their two young stars Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins — which gave the Knicks a golden opportunity to snap a five-game losing streak Sunday. But as Knicks owner James Dolan has said previously, the Knicks have no stars and were pummeled anyway, 103-92, at Target Center, to drop their...

Frank Ntilikina’s eventual return gets clearer — and more daunting

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MINNEAPOLIS — The Knicks have ruled out second-year guard Frank Ntilikina for their three-game road trip that began here Sunday night. That means the earliest he will return will be next Sunday’s home game against the Lakers. After evaluating him Saturday, the Knicks announced he would start “controlled contact” this week before the Knicks play...

James Dolan can do a lot more damage than petty fan threats

NY Post (Marc Berman) — A Garden spokesman would not elaborate on whether Saturday’s latest heckler of owner James Dolan would be banned from the Garden — a la Charles Oakley and Mike Hamersky. You remember Hamersky? In April 2017, the lawyer from Queens screamed at Dolan outside the Garden to sell the Knicks. Dolan cursed him out, security got...

David Fizdale can’t put a finger on why Kevin Knox is slumping

NY Post (Peter Botte) — David Fizdale has watched Kevin Knox working every day to climb out of a prolonged rookie slump, but Saturday once again was not the breakout day for the Knicks’ first-round pick. Knox missed nine of 12 shots and scored just seven points in a quiet 23 minutes in a 102-94 loss to the Kings at...

James Dolan threatens to ban fan who tells him to sell Knicks

NY Post (Joseph Staszewski) — James Dolan really doesn’t want to hear the cries for him to sell the Knicks. As Dolan walked away from his courtside seat at Madison Square Garden in the closing minutes of the Knicks’ loss to the Kings on Saturday afternoon, a fan yelled “Sell the team!” at the billionaire owner, as seen in a...

Link to NCAA corruption is no longer Dennis Smith’s problem

NY Post (George Willis) — If Dennis Smith Jr. was bothered by his name once again being linked to the federal case involving corruption in college basketball, he didn’t act like it Saturday afternoon at the Garden. For the first quarter of the Knicks’ noon-start game against the Kings, Smith was the best player on the floor. Smith scored 11...

Knicks lose again as uncertain futures are taking toll

NY Post (Peter Botte) — The Knicks have taken small solace in the rare individual strides a few emerging players have made this season, but coach David Fizdale still hasn’t been able to make as much headway as he’d hoped in implementing a team concept for a squad sporting the worst record in the NBA. With an eye on free...

Allonzo Trier finishing with a strong closing kick

NY Post (Peter Botte) — The Knicks haven’t truly thrived this season in anything other than draft-lottery positioning, so undrafted rookie Allonzo Trier certainly can be counted as a rare success story. Trier, who was slowed by a December hamstring injury, had slumped immediately after converting his two-way contract into a guaranteed deal potentially worth $7 million later that month....

Knicks gets first piece of hope for a Frank Ntilikina return

NY Post (Peter Botte) — Frank Ntilikina finally took part in what the Knicks described as a more active workout on Friday, albeit without fully returning to practice. The second-year guard will be reevaluated by the team’s medical staff on Saturday, but Ntilikina will miss his 18th consecutive game — when the Knicks face the Kings on Saturday — since...

DeAndre Jordan pushes back on talk about his age

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks center DeAndre Jordan is sensitive about his age and the perception 30 is considered old. In his first game back from a five-game absence with a sprained ankle, Jordan looked like he did in his younger All-NBA days, posting 17 points, 14 rebounds two blocks and going 7-of-8 from the field in Wednesday’s loss...

Draft-night whispers, Kidd hint: Frank Ntilikina’s Knicks and PG future fading

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Even with an endorsement from Dennis Smith Jr., Frank Ntilikina’s point-guard future — and present — has never been more muddled. Mysteriously, Knicks coach David Fizdale continues to shrug off Ntilikina’s extended absence, and it is unlikely he will return to practice Friday as he forever rehabs from a sore groin. “I don’t think they’re...

Knicks prove once again they are the worst team in the NBA

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHOENIX — Knicks coach David Fizdale called this contest a shootout between two teams aching for wins. “Two desperados,’’ Fizdale said before tipoff. “Fighting for crumbs on the table.” The Suns proved not as crummy as the Knicks — faster, more talented, better ball-movers and already with a bust-out star in the fold. Devin Booker...

Jason Kidd is latest legendary mentor recruited by David Fizdale

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHOENIX — Another ex-Knick was summoned by coach David Fizdale to impart his wisdom, even if this point-guard legend spent just one season in orange and blue. Newly inducted Hall of Famer Jason Kidd appeared at the Knicks shootaround at the Talking Stick Resort Arena and spent nearly 20 minutes huddled with Knicks point guards...

Knicks fans, after Williamson and Barrett, NBA Draft gets risky

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHOENIX — The Knicks inherited the worst record in the NBA from the Suns after Monday’s loss to Sacramento. The battle for the bottom will rage on Wednesday with the Knicks (13-51) in town to face the Suns (14-51). If these squads remain the bottom two, they’re both assured a top-six pick in the lottery....
