Kristaps Porzingis's new apartment complex has a basketball court designed by Carmelo Anthony

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Knicks is a flat circle. Kristaps Porzingis is the unquestioned prince of New York. And, like any prince, he needs a suitable palace from which to look down on the unwashed peasants, and occasionally to spit on us when the mood strikes. The young unicorn spent much of his time out in Westchester last season, but now he's moving on down to the West Side (Midtown West, to be exact), to a...

Let's all watch Carmelo Anthony drop a quick 20 points on China

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — No wall could have stopped this barrage of buckets. China has been roughed up by foreigners many times over the last millennium. The Mongols swept aside the last vestiges of the Song Dynasty, first under Genghis Khan and later under Kublai Khan. In the 1600's, the Machu schemed and bribed their way through the Great Wall and ruled China for 400 years. The late Manchu dynasty ended up getting...

He played all his best years in Phoenix, and was only intermittently productive after his...

Carmelo Anthony is raising his on-court profanity game to new heights for Team USA

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — King Kong ain't got shit on Melo going up for a rebound! In part 1 of this latest incarnation of "The Phil Files" , Phil Jackson compared Carmelo Anthony's leadership style to understated, lead-by-example legends like Willis Reed and Lou Amundson: "Carmelo isn't going to yell or throw chairs. His style is much more subtle." Oh yeah, Phil? Well if Melo's leadership style doesn't...

Will Smith makes a Phil Jackson/Triangle joke in 'Suicide Squad'. There is no escape anymore.

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Triangle references are the one constant in the multiverse. I watch New York Knicks basketball to escape the tedium and tragedy of everyday life. I watch movies to escape the tedium and tragedy of watching Knicks basketball. Those two worlds collided Saturday when I happened upon the Comic-Con Trailer for the upcoming film Suicide Squad. Things were going swell until the 1:42 mark,...

Berman: Knicks one of three teams in discussions to sign Chasson Randle

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The former SummerKnick will likely demand guaranteed money. The New York Knicks have one roster spot remaining, no more cap space, and a pretty glaring need for a third point guard. Could Summer League hero Chasson Randle be in the mix?  Marc Berman spoke to the agent of the former Stanford guard, who claimed that the Knicks are one of three teams in the mix to sign his client: ...

Derrick Rose talked pick-and-rolls, offseason conditioning and super teams

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Jeff Hornacek promised him more pick-and-roll possessions. It's a good thing. Recently-acquired point guard Derrick Rose made a faux pas in  an interview with NBA.com's Lang Whitaker which was posted on Friday. His statement was kind of dumb, and the reaction to it on the Basketnet Interball was fairly rabid. But first, let us cover the areas of Rose's interview which actually...

Carmelo Anthony is pretty dang sure the Knicks' time is now

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — He said it again and again and again and again. Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is currently preparing for the Olympics with a stacked (though not as stacked as usual) Team USA squad. And for the first time in a few years, he seems almost equally optimistic about the teammates on his professional club. Melo was downright giddy  in an interview with ESPN , praising Phil Jackson and...

This week in Knicks social media: Mindaugas Kuzminskas reminds us he isn't from the USSR

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Plus: terrifying caricatures and an intensive search for Latvian hip hop stations. Mindaugas Kuzminskas wasn't exactly well-known among NBA experts prior to his signing with the New York Knicks . One thing was certain, however: He was not a citizen of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. That country no longer exists. Unfortunately, somebody forgot to inform the Knicks' official...
