The Knicks’ roster has changed so much since December they decided to stand pat at the trade deadline and try to win with what they have.
Only Amar’e Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, Landry Fields, Toney Douglas, Iman Shumpert, Josh Harrellson, Bill Walker and Jared Jeffries were technically on the roster when camp began.
Since, the Knicks added Baron Davis, Mike Bibby, Steve... » more
Some want to make a big deal about Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire not playing in the fourth quarter yesterday. Maybe it was, but our thinking is there was no reason for Mike D’Antoni to put his two “best” players back in the game at that point.

MILWAUKEE -- "We're searching," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said outside the visiting locker room at the Bradley Center.

Anyway, here is D’Antoni’s explanation about choosing not to foul on the... » more
The 13th annual Knicks Bowl for the Garden of Dreams Foundation was held Friday night at 300 Bowl at Chelsea Piers. Jeremy Lin, Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire had the largest groups of young fans seeking autographs during the evening of bowling.

Jeremy Lin has read and heard all the nice things President Barack Obama has said about him. He would like to thank him in person.
Recently, President Obama told Grantland.com that he has “been on the Jeremy Lin bandwagon for a while.”
“That’s part of the Harvard network and being a part of the Harvard family,” Lin said. “It means a lot. They support me as I support them. I got a chance... » more
The last 10-15 minutes that the Knicks scrimmaged, Jeremy Lin and Baron Davis were in the backcourt together.
There will all different combinations up front, including one that featured Jerome Jordan. But it was Lin and Davis together that was significant. Davis did most of the ball-handling and Lin played off of him.
Coach Mike D’Antoni said he wants Lin and Davis to get used to playing... » more
