Knicks in limbo waiting for true Joakim Noah to reveal himself

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Every now and again, it’s useful to mosey over to YouTube and remind yourself of the player Joakin Noah was, and not all that long ago. In fact if you type in “Noah” and “highlights” and “2014,” the first thing that comes up is some video from a game played on Jan. 15 of that...

The Derrick Rose chain reaction that can solve Knicks’ problems

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The Knicks hope a cure-all for much of what ails them lately returns to the lineup Tuesday in Derrick Rose. “That’s the plan,” Rose, who has missed two-plus games with back spasms, said Monday after going through a full practice at the Knicks’ Tarrytown facility. “He didn’t complain of any back spasms or anything like...

How Kristaps Porzingis wants to get mind right before his shot

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Relax. Think happy thoughts. Be part of the whole. Maybe a simple relaxation technique is what Kristaps Porzingis needs. The 7-foot-3 second-year Knicks forward has been slumping with his shot lately. Over 13 games — more than just a tiny sample — Porzingis has shot .401 (89-of-222). Very un-unicorn like. And some of it stems...

Inside the ‘doppelganger’ bond that found Knicks a point guard

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Ron Baker has a good idea why he’s a Knick and Chasson Randle is in the D-League, lighting it up with Westchester. Coach Jeff Hornacek sees himself in Baker, the undrafted 23-year-old rookie from tiny Scott City, Kansas. As Derrick Rose wallows in back misery, Baker has stepped into the limelight as the Knicks’ backup...

The Knicks are starting to admit their Joakim Noah disaster

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Joakim Noah hit the weight room at the Pepsi Center late Saturday night after playing just 11 minutes in a dispiriting 127-114 loss to the Nuggets that ended their West Coast trip on a downer. He needed to get in a workout somehow. It was a sign of his troubled season – with Knicks coach...

Carmelo’s ‘must-win’ plea falls on deaf Knicks ears

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DENVER — Carmelo Anthony labeled Saturday night’s game a “must-win’’ as he looked for his first victory in the Mile High City since the 2011 trade that brought him to the Knicks. Apparently, only Anthony regarded the game with such importance as his blunt assessment fell on deaf ears. Despite Anthony’s spry offensive showing, in...

Derrick Rose’s back issues aren’t going away

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DENVER — If Derrick Rose continues to be in and out of the lineup with back issues, the Knicks’ point-guard depth will continue to grow into a major concern. Rose missed his fourth game in the past 10 days Saturday against the Nuggets because of a tight back. During that span, he played only one...

Knicks-Nuggets will have Hernangomez family glued to TV

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DENVER – The Hernangomez family, living in Madrid, plan an early wake up Sunday morning. They’ll need alarm clocks when the Knicks face the Nuggets at Pepsi Center to conclude their five-game West Coast trip at 9 p.m. — 3 a.m. in Spain — to see Willy and Juancho squaring off for the first time in the...

If Hornacek didn’t get Knicks job, he could’ve worked for Kerr

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DENVER — Jeff Hornacek is the last one to take offense that Golden State coach Steve Kerr ripped his Warriors for only blowing out Hornacek’s Knicks by 13 points after once leading by 25 in the third quarter. Had Phil Jackson not hired him in May, Hornacek, according to sources, would have been Kerr’s assistant...

Returning Carmelo: Nuggets game ‘a must-win’ for Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DENVER — Carmelo Anthony hasn’t had a lot of fun — or success — on return trips to the Mile High City. He has yet to win in Denver since becoming a Knick. The first season — the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season — the Knicks weren’t scheduled in Denver, but he has lost here in each...

How Kristaps Porzingis ‘pissed off’ Draymond Green

NY Post (Justin Terranova) — Kristaps Porzingis has Draymond Green’s attention, and that’s not a good thing. Porzingis told The Post on Wednesday he was motivated to step up his game against Green after he was shut down by the Warriors defensive stopper in both meetings against the Knicks last season. Those comments found their way to Green, who used it...

Knicks’ call to rest Carmelo the right move, but it doesn’t feel that way

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — OAKLAND, Calif. — The Knicks certainly weren’t going to walk into Oracle Arena and win this game absent Derrick Rose and Carmelo Anthony. They probably wouldn’t have won with Rose and Anthony (or with Clyde and Pearl, too, for that matter), not with the Warriors devoting so much of the night to an impromptu homage...

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. After saying at the morning shootaround he would play against the Warriors, Carmelo Anthony flip-flopped and elected to sit out Thursday’s game with what the Knicks called a sore right shoulder. Anthony had issues with his left shoulder three years ago when he had a slight...
