  Yep, the Knicks’ worst season is over and off-season starts anew. The regular season ended with the New York Knicks finishing as the league’s second worst record at 17-65, behind only the Minnesota Timberwolves. As such, the team earns a top five selection in this year’s draft. While the Knicks are probably looking to acquire the likes of Towns, Mudiay, Gasol, and Rondo, it’s unclear which current Knicks players the team is going to retain next season. Carmelo Anthony and Tim Hardaway Jr. will probably stay. But for the rest of the team, it’s no guarantee that all of them will get to stay. In order to get their winning streak back, the Knicks will have to fill the roster with competent players. Finishing [&hellip

  Uh-oh! The New York Knicks got their winning streak back and no one is happy about it. Yep. The New York Knicks have been great at losing basketball games for the most part of the season – 64 out of 81 games to be specific – until they made a complete 180 degree turn and started winning. And there lies the problem. Before going on a winning streak, the Knicks have played terrible basketball all year, making them the worst team in the NBA this season, but giving them the highest chance of getting the top pick in the NBA draft. Well, it didn’t last long. All of a sudden, the team decided to give it their best shot and ended up winning three [&hellip

  Yes they could! The New York Knicks officially ended their nine-game losing streak by winning against the Philadelphia 76ers with an impressive 101-91 last Easter Sunday at Madison Square Garden. Andrea Bargnani’s bagging 25 points and Shane Larking’s adding 15 and 11 rebounds helped clinched the victory. It’s no secret that it hasn’t been a lucky season for the Knicks after having lost nine straight and getting an NBA-worst record at 14-62. Before facing off with the 76ers, the Knicks lost to the Washington Wizards, although Ricky Ledo scored a game-high 21 points off the bench. The Knicks gave their best shot as Quincy Acy and Shane Larkin scored 14 points apiece for the Knicks, but it was too late. Adding insult to injury, the Wizards [&hellip

The New York Knicks is looking for a third straight win against the Sacramento Kings, after enjoying two consecutive victories against Detroit (121-115) and Toronto (103-98). These wins are in large part due to the brilliant performance of Andrea Bargnani and Tim Hardaway Jr., with Bargnani totaling 44 points and Hardaway Jr. 40 in those games. “Both nights were great teamwork. Everybody that stepped on the floor did something good for the team,” Bargnani said. And even the Knicks’ head coach Derek Fisher has something to say. “I think this group really is embracing this opportunity to try and kind of build some cohesion and connection as a group despite the win-loss record.” But now that they’ll be facing The Kings without their top players, [&hellip

The basketball world is in mourning these days. Anthony Mason, a former New York Knicks player who helped the team reach the 1994 NBA Finals, died at the age of 48. This was confirmed by a Knicks spokesperson shortly after the news broke out. Apparently, Mason, a 13-year NBA veteran, suffered from a massive heart attack and had been diagnosed with congestive heart failure in early February. He’d succumbed to the condition later that month. His son, Anthony Mason Jr., has issued a statement: “Overnight, New York City and the world lost a legend, a friend, a brother … but more than anything our father, Anthony Mason. As you all would expect our father — Big Mase — put up an incredible fight, dealing with [&hellip

Apparently, the NBA has fined the New York Knicks an undisclosed amount. This is in due to their team president Phil Jackson’s remarks about Ohio State freshman D’Angelo Russell after watching Ohio State Buckeyes play against Nebraska Cornhuskers in Columbus, Ohio. The comment was made after the Buckeyes’ 81-57 victory over Nebraska where Jackson told Cleveland.com that Russell was a “great-looking kid” and a “great prospect.” Remember that team personnel are prohibited by NBA rules from commenting on or publicly discussing college underclassmen or players who are yet to be eligible for the NBA draft. Jackson was there to check out players as he’s been spending the past few weeks attending college games and practices scouting prospects in college basketball. And Russell happens to be a [&hellip

It was a victorious night for the New York Knicks after pulling out a hard fought win against Toronto Raptors at Madison Square Garden, making the game one of their best wins of the season. The impressive 103-98 win of the Knicks had shocked the Raptors, inflicting the Raptors’ fifth consecutive loss. Tim Hardaway Jr.’s team-high 22 points helped the Knicks bag their second straight win as well as Andrea Bargnani’s 19 points and Alexey Shved’s 15 points. Raptors did try to step up their game when Lou Williams produced a team-high 22 points. Still, it wasn’t enough as the team fell into a tie with Chicago for second place in the Eastern Conference. Despite the Knicks’ win, the mood wasn’t entirely celebratory that night. [&hellip

Uh-oh. The future doesn’t seem to bode well for the three players of Charlotte Hornets. At least in the near future anyway. During the North Carolina based team’s recent 76-71 home victory against the New York Knicks, forward Marvin Williams suffered a concussion and broken nose. The timetable for William’s return to the Hornets is uncertain. And when he does, he will be playing according to the NBA’s concussion protocol. Point guard Kemba Walker and center Bismack Biyombo, on the other hand, are down with knee injuries. With Walker already missing recent two games due to a cyst on his left knee – a problem he’s had since high school. Never before the previous three NBA seasons had Walker missed a game. This prompts the [&hellip
