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.

So that leads to our question of the day – How much money will Carmelo …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.

Let’s go Knicks!

2013-14 Game Thread: Knicks @ Warriors

Well, the other night I said that the Knicks had to have a winning record on this West Coast trip to have a real shot at catching the Hawks for the #8 seed. So while the Phoenix loss was horrible, so long as they win tonight they will likely (hopefully?) have a winning record on this trip and they’ll have a real chance (the weird thing is that the Hawks are playing so poorly that even if the Knicks lose tonight, there’s no guarantee that the Knicks won’t still be right in the thick of the “race” for the 8th …continue reading
