ESPN (Danny Knobler | Special to ESPNNewYork.com) — NEW YORK -- Derek Fisher says he's fine with the uncertainty, but you wonder how he can be.

Phil Jackson gives player-by-player scouting report on his Knicks

ESPN (Danny Knobler | Special to ESPNNewYork.com) — Carmelo Anthony is the New York Knicks' "only certified All-Star." Andrea Bargnani will thrive in the triangle. J.R. Smith "has to learn the difference between a good shot and a bad shot," and "tends to be a ball-watcher" on defense. Amar'e Stoudemire can be a potent shooter, but "playing adequate defense is a real challenge for him, and he's also got to improve his rebounding." Says who? Phil...

Knicks get no love in NBA.com GM poll

ESPN (Danny Knobler) — Were you surprised that Carmelo Anthony re-signed with the New York Knicks last summer? At least one NBA general manager was. We can't tell you which one, because NBA.com's annual survey of league general managers is conducted anonymously.

Jeff Van Gundy: Knicks can make playoffs

ESPN (Danny Knobler | Special to ESPNNewYork.com) — Some preseason forecasts have the New York Knicks missing the playoffs for a second straight season. Not Jeff Van Gundy's.
