No Carmelo, no Rose, no chance for short-handed Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — OAKLAND, Calif. — No Carmelo Anthony. No Derrick Rose. No sufficient pregame warmups. No chance at Oracle Arena. Already missing two of their Big Three, the Knicks bus arrived late for their predictable rout against the Warriors, with most players entering the locker room 45 minutes before tip-off after being trapped on a 2-hour bus...

Kevin Durant now praises the Knicks he couldn’t bother with

NY Post (Marc Berman) — OAKLAND – Kevin Durant says he enjoys being the one to nickname Kristaps Porzingis “unicorn,’’ but that didn’t mean he wanted to suit up next to him. Reflecting on why he didn’t meet with the Knicks during his free-agency summit in the Hamptons, Durant simply said: He didn’t want to. Durant is glad the snub didn’t...

Carmelo Anthony skips Warriors in virtual Knicks white flag

NY Post (Marc Berman) — SAN FRANCISCO – The Knicks might as well forfeit.

How to beat the Warriors? Have everyone play perfect, then hope

Derrick Rose’s latest ding shows how fragile the Knicks really are

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — SAN FRANCISCO — Derrick Rose meant well when he said it. He probably even meant every word. This was a few weeks ago, just as the game he was bringing to the floor every night was starting to match the one from his — and everyone else’s — memory. “My goal is to play 82,”...

The best way to trash talk Kristaps Porzingis revealed

NY Post (Marc Berman) — SAN FRANCISCO — If Draymond Green really wants to get under Kristaps Porzingis’ skin Thursday at Oracle Arena, he can whisper in his ear: “Zinger.’’ That’s the nickname from Spain Porzingis still loathes. Not that Green needed to do any trash-talking last season in their two meetings, which Green dominated against the rookie. Porzingis claimed...

What’s wrong with Carmelo? Maybe his tired knees

NY Post (Marc Berman) — SAN FRANCISCO — You can blame it on Phil Jackson getting in his head, broadcasting to the world Carmelo Anthony holds onto the ball too long. In truth, Anthony’s recent malaise likely is due to fatigue, as he has looked worn physically after playing the first 25 games for the first time in his six...

The limits of Jeff Hornacek’s creativity with Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHOENIX — The night began with Suns coach Earl Watson, who replaced Jeff Hornacek following his firing in February, singing his former boss’ praises. “Jeff is very creative and needs space to be creative,’’ Watson said before the Suns stunned Hornacek’s hot Knicks, 113-111, at Talking Stick Resort Arena. “He understands basketball on another level....

Knicks display resolve, but moral victories don’t cut it anymore

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — They were a jangle of thoughts, opinions, emotions as they walked off the floor at Talking Stick Resort Arena late Tuesday night. Somehow, the Knicks had nearly pulled off their most satisfying victory of the season and yet, instead, wound up suffering their most excruciating loss instead. Such is life in the NBA when you...

Derrick Rose exits with back spasms: ‘I couldn’t move’

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHOENIX — In the long run for the Knicks, Tuesday’s 113-111 overtime loss to the woeful Suns could be secondary to the loss of Derrick Rose 10 minutes into the first quarter.

Knicks, Kristaps Porzingis show fight but drop overtime crusher

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHOENIX — Kristaps Porzingis got mad and got even. But he didn’t finish and didn’t get the win. After Derrick Rose went down with recurring back spasms and missed the final three quarters, it appeared the Suns were trying to take out Porzingis, too. They failed and only got the 7-foot-3 Latvian steamed. After his...

Carmelo, Rose pleading for this Knicks’ offensive wrinkle

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHOENIX – Carmelo Anthony says he and Derrick Rose have only scratched the surface of how dangerous they can be as a tandem offensively. Indeed, there has been a push from both the Knicks studs, Rose and Anthony, to have coach Jeff Hornacek call more pick-and-rolls for the two of them. And Hornacek is seeing...

Michael Rapaport is all in on his podcast obsession

NY Post (Justin Terranova) — This is what gets Michael Rapaport excited. It’s not news about his latest film or a big role, it’s a phone call from a basketball player. Former Knicks star Latrell Sprewell had called him days earlier, agreeing to appear on Rapaport’s podcast. “It was Spree, f—ing” Spree,” Rapaport says, unable to contain the pure joy of talking to the...

NY Post (Fox Sports) — On Monday evening, LeBron James accepted his award as Sports Illustrated’s “Sportsperson of the Year.” Before he took the stage to deliver a rousing speech, he was introduced by none other than hip-rop/rap/R&B mogul Jay Z — who had some special, thoughtful words to say about the event’s honoree. Some of the words, however, weren’t meant...

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHOENIX — When Brandon Jennings agreed to sign with the Knicks to be Derrick Rose’s point-guard caddie, team president Phil Jackson told him to aim for Sixth Man of the Year honors.
