Knicks’ new-guys report card: Did anyone earn a B?

Knicks get Cavalier pass, but home opener can’t be this ugly

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — CLEVELAND — The NBA may not have done the Knicks any favors by serving them up to the Cavaliers Tuesday night, on a night when Cleveland was feeling awfully damn good about itself.

Knicks kick off another new era with another humiliation

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CLEVELAND — The Cavaliers ran rings around the Knicks. Derrick Rose was rusty, Carmelo Anthony was sloppy, Kristaps Porzingis looked far from a budding superstar and Courtney Lee and Joakim Noah were shut out.

Knicks could learn a thing or two about winning from Cavaliers

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — CLEVELAND — You should see what it looks like here, in this city that not so long ago was bereft of sporting hope, drowning in decades of despair. You should hear how optimistic the locals sound, how rich is their swagger, how deep is their confidence. It’s actually disconcerting. And more than a little contagious....

Warriors’ fun-loving spectacle now loathed for juicy NBA year

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — When trying to assess the 2016-17 NBA landscape, a pointed observation from one of mankind’s late, great philosophers immediately surfaces. “Everybody pulls for David,” Wilt Chamberlain once said. “Nobody roots for Goliath.” This season’s NBA Goliath is Golden State. The Warriors were as beloved as Mother Teresa a few years back. Fun to watch with...

Knicks docs monitoring Derrick Rose for signs of trial ‘stress’

Jeff Hornacek wants Cubs to be an inspiration to Knicks

Honest Knicks admit beginning of the season may be rough

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — Joakim Noah admittedly is a “step slow” since suffering recent hamstring and ankle injuries. Derrick Rose has practiced with the Knicks just twice since returning from his civil trial for rape in Los Angeles.

How Knicks’ defensive problem decided last roster spot

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks’ defense wasn’t impressive in the preseason, which is why coach Jeff Hornacek refused to cut defensive forward Maurice Ndour and rolled the dice in waiving injured point guard Chasson Randle, with hopes he doesn’t re-sign elsewhere. The wiry 6-foot-9 Ndour was the Knicks’ 2015 summer-league standout who played briefly in Spain last season...
