Knicks fire Jeff Hornacek

Knicks snag meaningless win over Cavs, fall to 9th lottery seed

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CLEVELAND — The Knicks won one for Jeff Hornacek and lost one for lottery odds.

Carmelo Anthony doesn’t care how he got back to playoffs

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CLEVELAND — Carmelo Anthony didn’t exactly light the NBA on fire this season, but he’s back in the playoffs while the Knicks head to the golf course following their season finale Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena. At times, the 33-year-old Anthony became an afterthought in the Thunder offense, and his shooting percentage continued to plummet....

It’s not Jeff Hornacek’s coaching that likely will get him fired

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Coaching in our town is always perilous work. We know that. They certainly know it. You can’t take one of these nine pro jobs without knowing there will be heat from Day 1, scrutiny from Hour 1, stress from Minute 1. But even judged against New York’s unforgiving standards, this is an especially hazardous time....

Jeff Hornacek isn’t going down without a fight

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CLEVELAND — Embattled Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek emphatically made his case to remain head coach next season, entering his potential swan song Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena.

Jeff Hornacek’s grim moment of truth is here

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CLEVELAND — There was no final practice for Jeff Hornacek, who canceled Tuesday’s session. But there is a final flight and a final game. Hornacek will take the sidelines Wednesday with a 59-104 Knicks coaching record to face the Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena. Then, Hornacek will likely face the firing line. Lacking a vote...

Frank Ntilikina changes are giving Knicks hope

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CLEVELAND — As the Knicks’ season shuts down Wednesday in Cleveland, a light bulb has turned on inside French rookie Frank Ntilikina’s head. Although it’s probably too late for Ntilikina to make one of the two All-Rookie Teams, the 6-foot-5 point guard has adapted more of an attack mode/scorer’s mentality — weaving in some razzle-dazzle...

Knicks’ season of change was just more of the same

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — It was going to be so different this time. Carmelo Anthony, regarded by too many as “He Who Defiled All Things Basketball,” was gone. Phil Jackson and his blasted triangle were in the rearview mirror. Kristaps Porzingis was the alpha male, especially after the greatest individual start in Knicks history. The concern in those heady...

Knicks put up a fight in possible Hornacek Garden farewell

NY Post (Marc Berman) — If this was Jeff Hornacek’s last game coaching the Knicks at the Garden, you can’t say his downtrodden, depleted club lay down against the King on Monday night. The Knicks were within five points with six minutes left and six with 3:35 to go before LeBron James helped steer the Cavaliers home with his nifty...

LeBron is only one not laughing at Knicks recruiting banner

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LeBron James is playing nice. James had no snarky reaction to a billboard hanging near the Garden that challenged him to join the Knicks next season. The billboard contained a white Knicks jersey with his number 23 and “King of New York? Prove it. #KingJamesNYC18.” James even complimented the “cerebral” game of Knicks French rookie...

Knicks rookies reveal thoughts on what it means to face LeBron

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The standard of greatness. A childhood idol. A runaway freight train. The best player in the world. That is what awaits four Knicks rookies Monday when LeBron James visits for the final Garden game of the season. The rookies — Frank Ntilikina, Damyean Dotson, Luke Kornet and Isaiah Hicks — all have varying degrees of...

Knicks found yet another way to test their ‘ultimate professional’

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Coming off a serious knee injury that took a season and a half off his career, Jarrett Jack was brought in by the Knicks to mentor the likes of Frank Ntilikina. Turns out he became a starter, too, when Plan A on the Knicks’ drawing board went up in flames. But in the franchise record-tying...

Trey Burke talks career rebirth, meditation and life with Knicks

NY Post (Steve Serby) — Knicks point guard Trey Burke takes a shot at some Q&A with Post columnist Steve Serby. Q: Describe your on-court mentality. A: It varies. When I start the game, it’s a little mellow. It’s not as rowdy, as hype as it is midway through the second quarter or midway through the third quarter or even...

Jarrett Jack sighting can’t save Knicks from another ugly loss

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Among the buzzwords for the Knicks in yet another lottery-bound season are youth and development. But Saturday at the Garden, against the playoff-bound Bucks — OK, the playoff-bound Bucks who were without their best player — it was the elder statesman of the group, Jarrett Jack, who led the way for the banged-up Knicks. And...

It wasn’t just rookie’s scoring breakout that opened Knicks’ eyes

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Oh, in case you were wondering, Knicks rookie Damyean Dotson defended, too. Dotson, the Knicks’ second-round pick — No. 44 overall — last June, is regarded as a potentially solid, two-way, 6-foot-5 wing player. So before he went out Friday and carved a career night in virtually every way, he was given his prime assignment...
