  Mismanagement and bad luck have plagued the New York Knicks. Since the 1990s, they have not been able to put together a high caliber team. What has happened to the then-powerhouse NBA franchise? Previously, there have been some examples of mismanagement and bad luck encountered by the Knicks—poor administration of Isiah Thomas as the President of Basketball Operations, Amare Stoudemire’s consumption of nearly the entire cap space and most recently, the team’s inability to land a top 3 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. Indeed, things have not gone in favor of the Knicks. Recently, James Dolan, the CEO and owner of the Knicks, has asked for reinforcement from ex-Bulls and Lakers head coach Phil Jackson, who just became the President of Basketball Operations [&hellip

  Reportedly, the New York Knicks are not happy about landing fourth overall pick in this year’s NBA draft but they can’t do anything about it. With the Knicks picking fourth, their original draft plans have likely changed. Should they keep the draft pick instead of trade it away, they will most likely target a player who can make an impact alongside veteran Carmelo Anthony. Surely, Karl-Anthony Towns will be with Minnesota Timberwolves, Jail Okafor, with Lakers and D’Angelo Russell going with Philadelphia 76ers. If the top three picks will go as predicted, the Knicks’ first and best option would be the 6-foot-5-tall Emmanuel Mudiay, who played the past season overseas with Guangdong Southern Tigers in China. He averaged 18 points per game in 47.8 percent [&hellip

  It seems that former New York Knicks and Houston Rockets head coach is back to his usual coaching stint. Some fresh reports have confirmed that the New Orleans Pelicans have already interviewed Jeff Van Gundy for the vacant head coaching position of their team. According to Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Van Gundy has recently met with the Pelicans officials about their coaching vacancy. Reportedly, Van Gundy and Pelicans execs have already communicated through phones and this meeting was their first face-to-face encounter so far. The 53-year-old Van Gundy, who also happens to be a current ESPN color commentator, has been an NBA analyst after he’s fired by the Rockets in 2007 following the team’s Game 7 defeat in the hands of the Utah Jazz.

  With a 39.8 percent chance and second-best-odds of nailing the top pick, the New York Knicks unfortunately received the No. 4 pick at the 2015 NBA draft lottery. It’s fat chance for Knicks to acquire Karl-Anthony Towns or Jahlil Okafor since the two players might likely be picked by other teams like Minnesota Timberwolves or Los Angeles Lakers who are the No. 1 and No. 2 pick respectively. The Philadelphia 76ers, on the other hand, will pick third. With the results being revealed, avid Knick supporters are very disappointed and so are the players themselves. Despite their dismay, many fans still rooted for their team, since the Knicks are still in a good position to draft a good player in the upcoming NBA draft. If [&hellip

NBA draft lottery has not yet really happened yet there are some water cooler talk circulating around about the players to be drafted on New York Knicks team next season. Could it really be Thanasis Antekokounmpo, the older brother of Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis? The former was drafted by the New York Knicks late in the second round of the 2014 draft. And it was apparently Antetokounmpo’s rare blend of speed, size, athleticism and assertion that urged the Knicks to draft him. Rumors are still on with regards to Thanasis’ inclusion on Knicks’ 15-man roster in the NBA for the 2015-2016 season. We can’t blame the people for this speculation because the Westchester Kinicks player can really be an asset to the well-known team. After [&hellip

Uh-oh. Someone’s not convinced that Carmelo Anthony has what it takes to lead the New York Knicks. Yep, that’s Chauncey Billups, former NBA player and former teammate of Anthony. Apparently, Billups doesn’t believe that Anthony has a vocal attribute to stand up to his players. “He’s not that guy,” Billups said on “The Knicks Blog with Anthony Donahue” radio show. “Melo’s a good friend of mine, one of the best players I ever played with, but he’s not the guy who’s going to stand up in the locker room and give this rah-rah speech and get the team to rally. That’s not who he is.” He said that Anthony is more likely to lead by example, not by making speeches. So if the Knicks are [&hellip

Four of the top teams in the NBA – including the New York Knicks – are intent on getting the current Portland Trailblazer star to join their ships. Not surprising.

We don’t know for sure which team Alridge [&hellip
