Giving thanks to Kristaps Porzingis and these other NY sports figures

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Maybe I’m just getting a little sentimental in my old age. Maybe it’s because I look out the window and what I see — sharp sunshine, long shadows, orange and brown colors scattered across the back yard — yells “Thanksgiving” to me. Whatever it is, I am in an especially thankful mood. And it goes...

Brick-shooting Knicks no match for Magic, fall to .500

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO, Fla. — There was another block party for rookie Kristaps Porzingis, but a brickfest for most of the Knicks at Amway Center.

Mike Francesa suggests a nickname for Kristaps Porzingis

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO, Fla. — “KP” or “KP6”? During two drive-time interviews Tuesday on New York radio, Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis said those are his two favorite nicknames he has heard so far. WFAN’s Mike Francesa told Porzingis he would prefer to call him “Special K,’’ but the 7-foot-3 Latvian didn’t bite. Knicks team president Phil Jackson...

Knicks’ other top pick has already hit the rookie wall

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI – While the entire Knicks bench from the sixth to the thirteenth man had bad nights vs. the Heat in Monday’s 95-78 blowout loss, rookie backup point guard Jerian Grant’s lousy play may be the most alarming, continuing a recent trend.

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI — Heat All-Star power forward Chris Bosh said before the game that he had the answer to stopping Knicks’ 7-foot-3 rookie wonder Kristaps Porzingis — try defending him.

Knicks tumble back to earth in deflating blowout to Heat

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI — South Florida is known for its Cuban sandwiches, stone crabs and seafood ceviche, but the Knicks got handed a slice of humble pie Monday night by the Heat.

Amar’e Stoudemire: Ex-Knicks coaches wasted me and Carmelo

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI — Amar’e Stoudemire, reflecting on his five-year Knicks career, said he wished his past coaches had used him and Carmelo Anthony more strategically, believing they could have blossomed.

‘Big brother’ Carmelo already talking NBA titles with Porzingis

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI — Carmelo Anthony never objected to Knicks president Phil Jackson selecting Kristaps Porzingis at No. 4, but had told insiders he wouldn’t have minded Duke swingman Justise Winslow or Arizona forward Stanley Johnson at that slot either.

Amar’e Stoudemire insists riding Heat bench part of the plan

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI — Though ex-Knick Amar’e Stoudemire received a $50,000 watch from Miami brass for his recent birthday, he’s not receiving any playing time. Stoudemire has appeared in just two games, logging 20 minutes and making 5-of-7 baskets for 12 points. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra has stuck to a tight big-man rotation of Chris Bosh, Josh...

Assigning meaning to Porzingis’ vicious 1st moment as a Knick

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Sometimes, the noise doesn’t translate. Cheers that rock an arena’s foundation, boos that rattle its rafters, the television muffles them, neutralizes them, softens them. A din can seem dim when it’s boiled down to a speaker, even on the most sophisticated TV. But there is no mistaking what you hear every single time you replay...

Kristaps Porzingis already could be Knicks’ franchise-turning building block

NY Post (George Willis) — HOUSTON — There are times when you can see Kristaps Porzingis still has a lot of work to do on his game.

Kristaps Porzingis fills up stat sheet in way Dirk Nowitzki can’t

NY Post (Marc Berman) — HOUSTON — Kristaps Porzingis didn’t have a Dirk Nowitzki-like game in Oklahoma City on Friday, but Saturday against the Rockets he put together a more complete game than the German superstar. Before his 24-point, 14-rebound, seven-block domination of the Rockets, Porzingis said he’s trying to add Nowitzki’s patented fadeaway, one-legged jumper. Sure enough, he tried...
