Knickerblogger Question of the Day: If Carmelo Anthony Re-Signs With the Knicks, How Much Money Will He Re-Sign For?

Sam Amico of Fox Sports had the following two tweets yesterday: In talking w several execs today, consensus is LeBron, Wade, Bosh all re-up w #Heat. Doesn’t mean it happens. But that’s general consensus. Most execs feel Carmelo returns to #Knicks as well. Biggest name available could be Pau Gasol. “Never know tho. Lots can change,” exec says. I’d like to believe that the executive in question made it clear that he was saying specifically the word “tho.” The league executives are almost certainly correct. So that leads to our question of the day – How much money will Carmelo …continue reading

Recap: Knicks 100, Bulls 89

Chicago Bulls 89 Final Recap | Box Score 100 New York Knicks With a surprising win over the Heat yesterday, the Atlanta Hawks mercifully euthanized the Knicks’ playoff lives, rendering this game meaningless. Seeing as how this Knicks season was as surreal as the best of Buñuel, the Knicks would win this pointless match by double digits. Being the main director of this absurd season, Woodson felt like the future of the Knicks would be best served by playing Shumpert, Amare, Chandler and Felton each over 30 minutes in this game that has no bearing on anything at all, rather …continue reading

R.I.P. The New York Knicks’ Playoff Hopes

The fat lady has officially sung and the New York Knicks have been mathematically eliminated from finishing among the top eight teams in the Eastern Conference. I suppose you sort of have to give it up to the Atlanta Hawks, who defeated three playoff teams (Indiana, Brooklyn and now Miami) in their last five games to knock the Knicks out of the playoff hunt. As disappointing as this is, at least it took until the 79th game of the season before the Knicks were eliminated. 50 days ago, would any of us think that that was remotely possible?
