NBA Head Coaches Fired at the End of the Season

Posted on 22 Apr, 2014, by in Featured, NBA

Not all head coaches who left their teams at the end or during the 2013-14 NBA regular season were fired. Tyrone Corbin didn’t get his contract picked up by the Utah Jazz. Rick Adelman retired from coaching altogether, but the Minnesota Timberwolves wouldn’t have kept him. Maurice Cheeks was fired mid-season by the Detroit Pistons, while Mike Woodson got the axe from the New York Knicks a week after he failed to make the playoffs. More

New York Knicks – Kissing the Playoffs Goodbye

Posted on 26 Mar, 2014, by in NBA

The beginning of a new streak, a losing one this time, points to the true identity of the 2014 New York Knicks. A bad defensive team with a mentally weak group that was able to look good for short spurts during the season because of focus, effort and momentum. But when things don’t go their way early, embarrassing losses like the 127-96 one to the Los Angeles Lakers happen. More

New York Knicks – Another Misleading Streak Begins

Posted on 8 Mar, 2014, by in NBA

Every now and then Mike Woodson makes a desperate change in his lineup which starts a winning streak that creates the illusion of a good team come together again. The New York Knicks beating the Utah Jazz 108-81 with another big game from Carmelo Anthony is another one of those moments when it seems this dysfunctional team might actually make the playoffs.

Kings Over Knicks – Jimmer Fredette Ending the Mike Woodson Era

Posted on 13 Feb, 2014, by in NBA

Every time the New York Knicks think they’re seeing that light at the end of the tunnel, a freight train comes and squashed their hopes of making something out of this season. The Sacramento Kings were the next team to find the Madison Square Garden very accommodating, as a huge night from Jimmer Fredette might the final nail in the coffin that is Mike Woodson’s tenure as a head coach.

New York Knicks – Losing Hope It’ll Ever Get Better

Posted on 23 Jan, 2014, by in NBA

Nothing is going right for the New York Knicks, losing for a fifth straight game, this time to the Philadelphia 76ers, which isn’t that surprising considering how badly they’re defending right now and have been for most of this season. More

Kevin Durant Giving the Knicks a Sad Christmas

Posted on 25 Dec, 2013, by in NBA

No Carmelo Anthony, and that was pretty much the beginning and the end of the Christmas story between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the New York Knicks. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook (with a triple double) carried on with their excellent form, leading to a very impressive 123-94 road win. More

NBA Rumors – New York Knicks Shouldn’t Fire Mike Woodson, Yet

Posted on 5 Dec, 2013, by in NBA

One of the most popular games over the last few days is looking at how bad the New York Knicks are doing, and deciding whether or not Mike Woodson is the one to blame for their 3-13 start, or is it something else, which is a combination of the circumstances (injury to Tyson Chandler) and a pretty bad roster?

New York Knicks – Carmelo Anthony Will Force Iman Shumpert Off The Team

Posted on 3 Dec, 2013, by in NBA

It was already common knowledge that Iman Shumpert and the New York Knicks weren’t going to be an item forever, but his departure through a trade might be getting closer because he dared raise his voice to Carmelo Anthony in the most recent of Knicks debacles, resulting in Shumpert being benched for the rest of the game.

New York Knicks – Carmelo Anthony Playing for a Terrible Team

Posted on 11 Nov, 2013, by in NBA

Last year doesn’t mean anything, and simply being called the New York Knicks doesn’t mean that a badly built team is going to do well. Carmelo Anthony might be beginning what is going to be the worst season of his career, even if his scoring does stabilize at some point. He simply doesn’t have the talent around him to help him ease through his own problems, and he himself isn’t a good enough leader to make them overachieve. More
