Knicks’ Derrick Rose back in the groove but a big-time test awaits

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Though Derrick Rose got blocked at the rim on a rare driving dunk attempt Thursday by Orlando center Bismack Biyombo — a play that scorched the internet — take it as a good sign. Rose is feeling his oats, back spasms in the rear-view mirror. The Knicks are 2-0 since Rose returned from back woes,...

Christmas is when Carmelo gets validation — and revenge?

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Carmelo Anthony can hardly contain himself, like a kid envisioning opening presents under a decorated tree. It’s not just the honor of kicking off the Christmas card at noon, but it’s also playing the Knicks’ longtime rivals from Boston and attempting to avenge November’s disastrous night in Beantown. As a Brooklyn native, Anthony understands the...

Meet the prankster who has become a big Knicks contributor

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Backup center Kyle O’Quinn is an enigma wrapped in a riddle, and right now, he is riddling opposing teams with a dominance he never has shown in a five-year career. It’s been a nearly four-week joyride for O’Quinn, who has put up two 20-and-10 games in that span capped by Thursday’s double-double bonanza against his...

Why it’s so important for injured Porzingis to play on Christmas

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Kristaps Porzingis has looked forward to playing on his first Christmas since the NBA schedule came out in August. Wearing a protective brace on his bruised right knee, Porzingis didn’t practice fully Friday, but predicted the extra day of rest will allow for a Merry Kristaps on noon on Sunday. Porzingis has played in all 29 of the...

Latvia celebrates Kristaps Porzingis with grandma’s amazing singing

NY Post (Kyle Schnitzer) — Kristaps Porzingis has another song … thanks to grandma. The Knicks sensation was named Latvian Athlete of the Year (who was runner-up?) during the annual Latvijas Gada Balva Sportā on Thursday. Porzingis wasn’t in his homeland, though, busy helping the Knicks beat the Orlando Magic, 106-95. Porzingis’ grandmother Antonija Trumsina, great-aunt Ilga Lemaine and aunts...

Kristaps Porzingis’ early exit overshadowns Knicks’ solid win

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks routed Orlando on Thursday, 106-95, but whether there will be a Merry Kristaps on Sunday remains to be seen. Knicks phenom Kristaps Porzingis limped off the court in the opening minute of the fourth quarter after apparently banging knees with Orlando’s rugged center Nikola Vucevic and left the game for good with what...

Why George Karl’s Carmelo critiques are so off base

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Amid a wave of anti-Carmelo Anthony fervor in the city during one of the frequent dismal stretches for the Knicks last season — which naturally was all Anthony’s fault — an opposing executive shook his head and laughed. “Let me ask you,” he said, “who leads the Knicks in scoring?” Anthony. “Who leads them in...

Carmelo won’t respond to Karl’s jabs but Jeff Hornacek does

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek fiercely defended Carmelo Anthony against the attacks written in a memoir by former coach George Karl.

George Karl rips ‘user’ Carmelo Anthony in upcoming book

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Former Nuggets coach George Karl took a series of personal shots at Carmelo Anthony in an upcoming memoir, claiming Anthony was “a conundrum,’’ a user, not a leader and unwilling to share “the spotlight’’ or play defense during their six years together. Karl also took aim in “Furious George’’ at former Nuggets, and ex-Knicks, J.R....

The surprise effect the Olympics had on Carmelo Anthony’s body

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — When Carmelo Anthony decided he would compete over the summer for an unprecedented fourth time with the U.S. Olympic basketball team, there were those whose first thoughts bordered on unpatriotic. “Is he nuts? He’ll be exhausted by Christmas,” was one line of thought. Anthony and sore knees have been longtime companions. Last season, Anthony missed...

Don’t look now: Knicks developing their own Big 3

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — OK, they’re not Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish or LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh for that matter. But the potential and abilities of the Knicks’ Big 3 alignment of Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Kristaps Porzingis are taking shape, coming into focus. And with them, so are the Knicks. And with...

Courtney Lee is the key to unlocking Knicks’ 3-point potential

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks beat the Pacers on Tuesday at the Garden with their 3-point shooting – something that should be, but isn’t yet, part of their team identity. The Knicks shot 56.5 percent from 3-point land: 13-of-23. Carmelo Anthony shot 7-of-11. Kristaps Porzingis was 4-of-7. Neither of those two Knicks stars is the team’s best 3-point...

Inside the Knicks’ unsolvable Derrick Rose problem

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Tom Thibodeau never came close to becoming the Knicks coach, even as he was the highest-profile free-agent coach not coaching last year. He wound up in Minnesota, and it’s been fun seeing him and his ultra-Type-A personality adjust to the Timberwolves, composed of some of the league’s most talented (and headstrong) youngsters. Thibodeau never worked...

Carmelo Anthony doesn’t like NBA’s new All-Star vote rules

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Fans have been good to Carmelo Anthony. They have voted him in as an NBA All-Star starter eight straight years — in both the Western and the Eastern conferences. So it’s little wonder Anthony wasn’t thrilled to learn this week the fans will have less impact in this season’s All-Star voting, which starts on Christmas....
