What exactly has gone wrong in Miami? How can it be fixed? And if Pat

PODCAST: Scotto on the Knicks, Derrick Rose, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis and More

radio1

The New York Knicks have run the Love Triangle offense off the court better than Phil Jackson’s version on the court thanks to coaches Derek Fisher and Kurt Rambis. Will this be the final straw for Carmelo Anthony to waive his no-trade clause and for the Knicks to scrap the Triangle offense for a proven winner in former Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, the best available coach on the market? Speaking of the Bulls, Derrick Rose is averaging 26 points, 5.7 rebounds

PODCAST: Scotto on Dwight Howard, Markieff Morris and Raptors Trade Talks

radio

Houston Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff called his team “broken” recently, and with the team currently out of the playoffs Dwight Howard could be on the move.

Trades talks are heating up with less than a week until the trade deadline on February 18. Another player who may be dealt at the deadline is Phoenix Suns forward Markieff Morris who has wanted

PODCAST: The curious case of the Miami Heat

radio

Dwyane Wade scored 2 points last night in a lopsided loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, only the third time that has happened to him in 973 career games. Tyler Johnson started at point guard and shot 0-for-6. The Heat shot a season-low 36.5 percent and failed to break 80 points for the second straight game. As a team, the Heat totaled 13 assists. Was this “rock bottom,” as Michael Wallace of ESPN.com asked? Is there any way Pat Riley can fix this

Sheridan: Why Did Dwight Howard Call Me a Liar?

Dwight Howard interview

Dwight Howard called me a liar Tuesday night. He is mistaken. I wrote that Howard is very unhappy in Houston, and I stand by that report 100 percent. For the reasons why he is unhappy, and my best guess as to where he will finish the season (Miami), click over and give a read to my column. But back to the liar part.

PODCAST: Where do the Warriors Go From Here?

radio

It was fun while it lasted, wasn’t it? But if you saw how tired the Golden State Warriors were at the end of their double-overtime victory over the Boston Celtics on Friday night, you had to know they’d be gassed the following night in Milwaukee. That they were, not to mention hobbled with Klay Thompson playing on a bad ankle and Harrison Barnes missing another game. And like all good things, the streak came to an end. Tonight they will no doubt

PODCAST: Whiteside’s days in Miami are numbered

radio

Quite the performance by Hassan Whiteside of the Heat in Tuesday night’s loss to the Hawks: 23 points on 11-for-12 shooting, 14 rebounds and four blocks in just 31 minutes. If Dwyane Wade had not come down with a migraine, the Heat might actually be 3-1 instead of 2-2. Folks in Miami are rightfully thrilled about the emergence last season and this season by Whiteside, but here is the bad news: Unless Miami plans to renounce its right to Dwyane Wade,
