The New York Knicks brought in Phil Jackson to oversee all major activities as the president of the team last season. Jackson then brought in his former player Derek Fisher over the summer to be the new head coach moving forward. Put the two together and what we can expect from the Knicks is this: a good amount of the Triangle offense and plenty of movement without the ball. At least that would seem to have been the plan heading into

Tweet of the Day: New York Knicks FINALLY Usher In Phil Jackson Era

Tweet of the Night: Wally Szczerbiak reacts to Andrea Bargnani’s explosive night

220px-Wally_Szczerbiak_Cavs

When the New York Knicks acquired Andrea Bargnani from the Toronto Raptors over the summer, plenty around the league questioned the move. The former No. 1 overall pick has built a reputation over the years as a “soft” big who can’t rebound, defensively unreliable and isn’t efficient enough on offense – all things that the Knicks actually needed to improve on from last season. So when all these things appeared to be true through his first four games of the season –

Thursday brought with it Halloween, possibly most children’s favorite day of the year. While it isn’t recognized as a national holiday of any sort—people still have to work and pay taxes, it is a day of fun for nearly everyone. For most families, this means dressing kids in costumes and parading around the neighborhood searching for candy. For NBA players (active and retired), it’s no different.

It took quite some time for Amare Stoudemire to regain his form as a dominant force on the basketball court since suffering a back injury two postseasons ago. The power forward was never quite right last season, and missed a good chunk of this season due to a knee issue that still has him playing on a minutes restriction – recommended by the team’s doctors.

Bauman: Kevin Garnett has come full circle

Kevin Garnett

When Kevin Garnett came into the NBA as the fourth preps-to-pros phenom, he was a gangly, 6-11, 220 pound player with unmistakable skills and a burning passion and insatiable appetite for the game of basketball. He entered the league when Patrick Ewing was a dominant player, and last night his 15 points against New Orleans moved him past Patrick Ewing for 16th on the all-time scoring list.

Dwight Howard better figure out his ft shooting. He shoots them like shaq did but he's nowhere near as dominant as shaq was. #Lakers #NBA

It’s a harsh way of making comparisons (although Shaquille O’Neal would be proud), but former player and current MSG Network analyst Wally Szczerbiak was quite frank about Dwight Howard, whose free throw shooting has been comically bad in his first season with the Los Angeles Lakers. It’s no secret that the big man’s biggest struggle comes from the stripe, but over the past couple of seasons, he has become a true liability. Howard leads the league in free throw attempts
