What makes this the best Knicks stretch in years

NY Post (Justin Terranova) — MSG Network analyst Wally Szczerbiak spoke with The Post’s Justin Terranova on Wednesday before the game against the Cavaliers and breaks down the start to the Knicks’ season.

Derrick Rose wouldn’t have let Knicks get bullied by LeBron

NY Post (Marc Berman) — When discussing Derrick Rose’s game, explosiveness is normally the first adjective used to compliment him. Toughness rarely is. Rose has a degree of basketball toughness – forged in one of the roughest street basketball neighborhoods in the South Side of Chicago. One of the parks he played in was nicknamed “Murder Park.’’ Rose’s toughness was...

The one LeBron James play that proved he owned the Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The one play that symbolized an awful Wednesday night at the Garden came late in the first half, when LeBron James rumbled down the lane and every Knick seemed to shy away. King James roared in for a thunderous dunk, then stepped into the baseline seats, seemingly suggesting he owns the Garden. He certainly did...

LeBron gets last laugh in destruction of Phil Jackson’s Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Give Knicks president Phil Jackson credit for this debacle, for his choice words riling LeBron James up while snapping Carmelo Anthony’s 12-day surge. James would not answer any questions about Jackson before Wednesday’s game and did his talking — and perhaps glaring — on the court. Spurred by Jackson recently calling his management team “a...

Knicks hold their breath as Derrick Rose gets back checked

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Derrick Rose missed his first regular-season game as a Knick, because of back spasms, and was sent to get an MRI exam on Wednesday night to rule out any serious injury. Hence the Knicks were set to face the defending-champion Cavaliers with Brandon Jennings as starting point guard. The Knicks played six of their seven preseason...

Phil Jackson isn’t even right when he echoes angry Knicks fans

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — This time, when Phil Jackson speaks, he knows he has allies. He knows he has plenty of people who have his back, because he can hear them, he can sense them, he can listen to the way they react just as viscerally as Jackson himself apparently does. This happens every time the Knicks play a...

Phil Jackson interrupts Knicks’ high point to critique Carmelo

NY Post (Marc Berman) — That’s more odd timing for Knicks president Phil Jackson. Just as the Knicks are three games over .500 for the first time since he took over and Carmelo Anthony is turning into his old clutch self, Jackson decided it was time to nitpick his star’s tendency to hold on too long to the ball, sometimes hurting...

Derrick Rose may miss Cavaliers showdown with back spasms

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI — At least it’s not his knees.

Rose said it was not just his back,...

Carmelo beats up on depleted Heat as LeBron awaits

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI — The Knicks started a seven-game stretch Tuesday featuring six road games and one mighty home game — against the defending champions. Tuesday was the easy part.

Phil Jackson doesn’t buy LeBron’s ‘posse’ fury

NY Post (Hannah Withiam) — The Zen Master may be stirring more controversy than peace in the aftermath of his “posse” comments concerning LeBron James and his black business partners. Knicks president Phil Jackson expressed regret Tuesday for speaking about another team’s player and for his “word choice,” but skirted around the term’s racial connotations that inflamed James. “We...

The Joakim Noah concerns grow by the day

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI – Joakim Noah is working on his free-throw technique with Jeff Hornacek as tutor, so “Hack-a-Noah’’ doesn’t become a thing. The Knicks coach believes Noah’s nightmare free-throw shooting is more “in his head’’ than technique, even though Noah’s form always has been unorthodox. It’s the latest issue in Noah’s troubled first season as a Knick. “A...

LeBron dismisses Phil Jackson peace with a single word

NY Post (Jonathan Lehman) — It took one word for Phil Jackson to land permanently in LeBron James’ doghouse. And it took one word for the reigning king of the NBA to dismiss having any kind of peace summit or make-nice conversation with the Knicks president when the Cavaliers visit Madison Square Garden on Wednesday. “No,” James said Monday night,...

Derrick Williams on awkward exit after opt-out: Knicks never called

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Derrick Williams knows his decision in late June to opt out of the final year of his Knicks’ contract, worth $4.5 million, doesn’t look great now. After signing a modest one-year Heat pact equivalent to his prior Knicks’ deal, Williams has played in just 11-of-20 games for the struggling Heat (7-13), who host the Knicks...

Derrick Rose to foes: Good luck when I play with Brandon Jennings

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — So firing squad or hanging? That is sort of how Derrick Rose sees the choice for opposing defenders when he is teamed on the floor with Brandon Jennings. So how would you like your butt kicked, by Rose/Jennings or by Carmelo Anthony/Kristaps Porzingis? “It’s hard for the defense where me and Brandon, we’re good off...
