Knicks coach sees team’s flaws differently than Carmelo does

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Several times throughout the season, Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek stressed he knew what coming to work in New York entailed. He received warnings. Lots of warnings. Guess the warnings were not given without cause. So Hornacek barely broke verbal stride Saturday when asked about a possible snipe by Carmelo Anthony, who after the latest disheartening...

Carmelo should check out this history of tanking NYC teams

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — We have two teams now, the Knicks and the Jets, who have all but declared their intentions to tank. The Jets are careening toward having open tryouts to fill out their roster, and the Knicks are doing everything shy of forbidding their players to shoot in order to pile up losses and improve their status...

Lance Thomas: Face fracture was an indirect ‘blessing’

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Lance Thomas fought plantar fasciitis early in the season then was out for 14 games after suffering a fractured orbital bone. But he is back, and his presence has helped the Knicks’ defense. “Continue to stay vocal, just be aggressive. Do the things that my teammates expect of me. And just do it at a...

It took one Wizards game for Brandon Jennings to swipe at Knicks

NY Post (Mark W. Sanchez) — In one sentence, Brandon Jennings offered a thinly veiled critique of the Knicks’ triangle and the Knicks themselves. After his Washington debut, in which he played 10 minutes without a point, the new Wizards backup point guard said he was thrilled to be with a cohesive team — unlike the team he left behind after...

Why tanking isn’t a full-proof strategy for Knicks: Exhibit A

NY Post (George Willis) — PHILADELPHIA — There is a segment of NBA followers who believe the fastest way to rebuild the Knicks is to tank the rest of this frustrating season to improve their chances of getting the first or second pick in the upcoming draft. Never mind that the Knicks still have a long-shot chance of qualifying for...

Knicks drop heartbreaker to 76ers in a season full of them

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHILADELPHIA — Another last-possession loss — and the Knicks probably won’t recover from this one. Carmelo Anthony couldn’t win it this time with a last-second jumper. With the Knicks trailing by one, Anthony ended his disjointed night by missing a left-of-the-lane jumper over a 76ers double-team with three seconds left as Philly hung on 105-102...

Knicks tank job is Carmelo Anthony’s nightmare

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHILADELPHIA – Saying he “misses the playoffs a lot,’’ Carmelo Anthony said it’s impossible for a player to embrace the tanking bandwagon across the final 21 games. The Knicks, who play Friday night in Philly, are four games out of the eighth playoff seed in the Eastern Conference, needing to hop over four teams to make...

Breaking down players who could be next Knicks point guard

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — In a perfect world, the Knicks would steam into free agency this summer and land one of the primo point guards at the top of the heap, a Steph Curry, Chris Paul or Kyle Lowry. If you haven’t noticed, neither the world nor the Knicks are perfect. Forget those top-tier talents. “It’s either through the...

Knicks want Derrick Rose to be less predictable and shoot 3s

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHILADELPHIA – Derrick Rose said it with a straight face. His rarely used 3-point shot will be raring to go soon – in the postseason. Rose, who bedeviled the Magic on Wednesday with his explosions to the rim on his way to an 18-point, seven-rebound, four-assist night, acknowledged the Knicks coaching staff is trying to...

Amar’e Stoudemire slammed as sad homophobic man-child

NY Post (Post Wire Report) — Amar’e Stoudemire has enough to worry about as the co-owner and ostensible star of a team in a second-rate Israeli basketball league. He probably didn’t need to attract the attention of a pair of ex-NBA players who slammed the former Knick’s homophobic views. After Stoudemire told an Israeli website he would “shower across the street”...

This is the player Jeff Hornacek has waited all season for

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO – Lance Thomas has replaced Ron “Burgundy’’ Baker as Jeff Hornacek’s favorite player. With the Knicks defense rising up, Hornacek dished all the credit to Thomas’ return after a month-long absence. Thomas broke the orbital bone in his face in mid-January when he got clocked by the elbow of Raptors center Jonas Valunciunas. Thomas never...

Kristaps Porzingis shines in return as Knicks thump Magic

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO, Fla. — This is the land of fantasy and unicorns, so why not. March is here and the Knicks are trying to make it meaningful. Kristaps Porzingis, the 7-foot-3 Latvian unicorn, made a triumphant and stirring return after missing the last two games with an ankle sprain and Derrick Rose made Tom Thibodeau wish...

How Phil Jackson meddled his way to triangle triumph

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO – Jeff Hornacek acknowledged Knicks president Phil Jackson has influenced him into using more triangle offense – especially to enhance their defensive posture. And Jackson has a supporter in Kristaps Porzingis, who thinks the club should’ve used the triangle a lot more at the beginning of the season instead of Hornacek’s combo attack. “[Phil...

Derrick Rose’s free-agency plan after awkward Knicks tenure

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO – Wednesday was the deadline for Derrick Rose to take the Brandon Jennings path. Rose would need to be waived March 1 to be eligible to be on a playoff roster for another club. Instead he will face Orlando on Wednesday night as the starting point guard and won’t be asking for any buyout....
