Joakim Noah makes pitch for Carmelo with playoffs in sight

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Joakim Noah doesn’t want to hear anything about a rebuild or a move of Carmelo Anthony. Noah has his own health issues to worry about now that he has a recurrence of a strained left hamstring that kept him out of four preseason games. Noah, who missed Monday’s game, said the club can’t contemplate the...

Knicks’ injuries don’t expose health crisis — they expose Phil Jackson

NY Post (Marc Berman) — When Jeff Hornacek assesses his starting lineup, the Knicks coach says he doesn’t want to make changes yet. Too often, the quintet has been broken up by minor injuries. Since Dec. 7, the lineup hasn’t been intact for 19-of-31 games, including Monday’s match against the Lakers, which center Joakim Noah missed with a left hamstring...

‘Miserable’ Phil needs to end this drama and back off Carmelo

NY Post (Marc Berman) — After last season’s Super Bowl Sunday loss put the Knicks eight games below .500, Phil Jackson fired his coach, Derek Fisher. A year later on Super Sunday, the Knicks stood eight games under .500 again. The Knicks president can no longer in good conscience use another coach as scapegoat. Instead, Jackson tries to fire his...

Joakim Noah’s hamstring opens spot in Knicks lineup — for whom?

NY Post (Marc Berman) — It’s taken another injury to remove Joakim Noah from the starting lineup. Noah, who suffered a left hamstring injury in Saturday’s loss to the Cavaliers, will miss Monday’s Lakers game and could be out for a few games, if training camp is any indication. Noah’s left-hamstring injury during camp cost him at least two weeks...

Jeff Hornacek: The advantages of trading Carmelo Anthony

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Carmelo Anthony isn’t the only one torn. Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said he’s still aiming to make the playoffs, but made his first pitch that breaking up the team with an eye on a rebuild makes sense, too. It’s unusual for a head coach to cite the merits of making moves to tank a season, but...

Knicks revolutionized 3-point shooting before it was cool

NY Post (Marc Berman, Fred Kerber) — Before Mike D’Antoni’s speedball gangs and Steve Kerr’s record-setting Warriors, the Knicks were 3-point shooting trendsetters in the late 1980s. The 1988-89 Knicks, under coach Rick Pitino, attempted 1,147 3-pointers, up by more than 400 from the previous league high, and made 386, to shatter the former 271 standard. Saturday, as part of the Knicks’...

There is one Jackson who is a fan of Carmelo Anthony

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Another Carmelo Anthony supporter voiced his opinion Saturday. Former Knick and TV color analyst Mark Jackson threw his support behind Anthony, saying the oft-maligned forward, who has been the subject of numerous trade rumor reports, has too long been on a talent island with the Knicks. “It’s not just him. You don’t win with just...

Knicks have accepted a losing culture, and it starts with Jackson

NY Post (George Willis) — If there is a basketball purgatory, the Knicks are in it, caught between the illusion of chasing a playoff berth and the likelihood they are about to rebuild for the future. That was evident against the Cavaliers on Saturday night at the Garden, where LeBron James and the defending champions beat the overmatched home team...

Kristaps Porzingis on Skills Challenge: ‘I think I have a shot’

NY Post (Marc Berman) — When the season began, Kristaps Porzingis hoped to complete the All-Star weekend triple crown — the Rookie-Sophomore game, the Skills Challenge and the main event. He will have to settle for two of the three after being passed over for the All-Star Game. Nevertheless, Porzingis said he is “excited” about being one of the eight...

LeBron backs Carmelo before absolutely torching the Knicks

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — LeBron James did not want to engage in any talk about the stormy relationship between Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks management. His lips were sealed, other than to say he wants Anthony, his friend, to be happy. Instead, as he usually does, he made a whole lot of noise of the court and made the...

Knicks rally, but Cavaliers show LeBron and Love conquer all

NY Post (Marc Berman) — If the Cavaliers needed further confirmation there is no reason to swap Kevin Love for Carmelo Anthony, they got it at the Garden on Saturday. Even LeBron James has to admit to it now. With Anthony suffering through a second straight slothful night, LeBron James soared and Kevin Love produced as the Cavaliers shook off...

When Carmelo owned NY: Remembering chaos of Knicks debut

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — HOUSTON — As we speed inevitably and inexorably toward the exit ramp, perhaps it is not such a terrible idea to remember when things around the Knicks were perfectly juxtaposed, when they were the team seeking to make a blockbuster trade, when they were the ones hoping to import an All-Star. It is easy to...

How long will Hornacek put off the Joakim Noah inevitable?

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knowing his four-year, $72 million contract is untradeable, Joakim Noah is viewed by management as their backup center for next season, according to a source. What’s unknown is whether that backup status is realized this season. Despite rookie center Willy Hernangomez’s striking progress the past few weeks, Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek still is coming up...

LeBron’s Carmelo speculation leaves door open for trade

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LeBron James wasn’t lobbying for Carmelo Anthony on the eve of their Garden showdown, but he also left open the door for his longtime compadre, who may want greener pastures beyond Broadway.

How the Knicks can be the loser of the Barkley-LeBron feud

NY Post (George Willis) — It’s hard for Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek to feel sympathetic about LeBron James’ complaints the Cavaliers are too “top heavy” to repeat as NBA champions. The Knicks are struggling not to be bottom feeders in the Eastern Conference with a lineup that should make James appreciate the roster he has in Cleveland. “I guess Kyrie...
