How 2016 set up New York’s next sports golden era

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Quietly, 2016 slipped away without bringing a championship to New York City, which means that for the first time in 48 years, we have endured a five-year window in Fun City without throwing a party for ourselves. The quiet zone of 2011-2016 pales to the last great drought (the ’62 Yankees through the ’68 Jets)....

Knicks’ jack-of-all-trades guard sidelined by wrist injury

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — ATLANTA — Things changed. Early in the day, Knicks guard Courtney Lee predicted he would be able to play through a wrist injury. Then he went through shootaround.

Why Joakim Noah thinks Knicks have an identity problem

NY Post (Roger Rubin) — The Knicks have a trio of scorers capable of putting up big numbers in Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Kristaps Porzingis, yet they are a middling 16-14. Their weaponry is being wasted on the defensive end of the court, where they are among the NBA’s worst units. The Knicks are giving up 108 points per...

Jeff Hornacek: Why should Knicks pass just for style points?

NY Post (Roger Rubin) — To pass or not to pass, that is the question. The big debate about the Knicks’ offense these days is whether there should be more ball movement or the players should continue to get the ball to those who can take their defenders one-on-one. The volume got turned up on the issue after Sunday’s loss...

Courtney Lee struggles with Knicks orders to shoot more

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Get greedy. Courtney Lee, the Knicks’ starting shooting guard, has made the rounds of the NBA, but this season is the first one in which his coach has begged him to take more shots – contested shots, that is.

Kristaps Porzingis marks holiday with huge dunks and pratfalls

NY Post (Marc Berman) — It didn’t turn out to be a Merry Kristaps for the Knicks’ 7-foot-3 Latvian phenom, despite some gaudy numbers posted on a still-healing bruised right knee. Kristaps Porzingis had 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting, 12 rebounds, two steals and four blocks, sprinkled in with a couple of highlight-reel dunks. But his season-high five turnovers, a...
