With the Knicks falling apart because of injury and turmoil, Carmelo Anthony decided to do some breaking of his own tonight.
Melo moved past Bernard King and Kobe Bryant in the Knicks and Madison Square Garden record books, setting a franchise, arena, and career record for points in a single game, blasting off for 62 tonight versus the Bobcats. Continue reading
Former first overall pick, Andrea Bargnani, is on his way to New York after a deal between the Knicks and Raptors was completed early Monday. The trade has led to debate on the merits and faults of the deal. Here are three different perspectives on the deal:
Sunday afternoon brought more feed to the side that believes Carmelo Anthony is a shot vacuum for the New York Knicks offense.
Many already call him a “volume shooter” – a negative connotation for players who shoot until they get hot or just take a large quantity of their team’s shots.
There have been many players under this designation who have led their teams to the playoffs. But is Melo the single worst volume shooter of them all? Continue reading
It was a positive weekend for Madison Square Garden tenants this weekend as both the Knicks and Rangers came out on top this weekend.
But before we look at the weekend, a trade has occurred that will change the Rangers main roster going forward.

The New York Knicks took one from the Orlando Magic last night at MSG. Carmelo Anthony broke a team record for most consecutive games with 20 points and the Melo-Tyson Chandler- Amare Stoudemire combination seems to be clicking wonderfully for the first time.
But that was basketball, and this is just as good.
Ray Felton returns tonight from the “terrifying” pinkie injury he suffered last month.
This is not the same Knicks team since he left. It will not be the same Knicks team of the past month now that he has returned.
We needed a picture of Shump’s fade around here, so Iman Shumpert leads the Knicks notes.
Shumpert returned last game, against the Pistons in London, with a nice 8 points, 2 rebounds, and a steal, going 2 for 3 from three-point territory. Continue reading

The Knicks lost tonight to the Celtics, but the most eventful moment of the evening came when Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett got into a skirmish after some rough play underneath the basket. Both got technicals and were shuttled off to their benches.
But what was more amazing about this? (video below)
J.R. Smith won the Knicks game tonight, hitting two clutch and insane shots at the end to beat the Suns.
So it’s celebration time and what I like to call, people who enjoy J.R. Smith:
The first time around, Knicks fans got their satisfaction. The coach who they pleaded to find a little defense until he decided New York was not in his future plans, returned to the Garden and lost with his new team, the Los Angeles Lakers, 116-107.
And boy was that fun. Despite MVP candidate, Carmelo Anthony getting injured in the final minutes of the game, the Knicks were able to run the wounded Lakers off the floor.
This left the Lakers at 9-14, a shell of the normal Lakers teams. Having dispatched embattled coach, Mike Brown, after only 5 games, LA was still trying to get used to D’Antoni’s “SSOL” offense.
