About the only thing the Spurs haven’t done is win back-to-back titles. With Popovich managing minutes and having his team ready to roll in the playoffs better than any other coach, and an unselfish and seemingly ageless trio of stars in Duncan, Parker and Manu Ginobili, the Spurs are set to make a run at a sixth championship. G Nelson (free agent, Magic), F Parsons (free agent, Rockets), C Chandler (trade, Knicks), G Raymond Felton (trade, Knicks), F Al-Farouq Aminu (free agent, Pelicans), F Richard Jefferson (free agent, Jazz). F Shawn Marion (free agent, Cavaliers), G-F Vince Carter...

Carmelo Anthony will be in the Knicks' opening-night starting lineup for the fourth straight season. He's the only player who can say that.
Derek Fisher's starting five is starting to take shape. Fisher went with Iman Shumpert at shooting guard and Jason Smith at power forward in the New York Knicks' preseason finale Friday, against the Toronto Raptors in Montreal. Those two are likely to start in the regular season opener as well. "We’re still identifying a specific group of guys that work best together, but I think it’s safe to say it’s close to it," Fisher told reporters in Montreal, when asked if he'd stick with this lineup for Wednesday's game against the Chicago Bulls.

Before you watch Spike Lee’s film on the triangle offense, it’s worthwhile to listen to Phil Jackson describe the principals of it in his own words. Below, Jackson talks to New Yorker writer Ben McGrath about the triangle offense: McGrath: How do you go about trying to change culture of an organization from scratch. Phil: “The first thing you do in my mind is to have a system of how you want to play basketball. And I don’t think that -- everybody talks about a triangle offense and what’s associated with our background, my coaching staff and myself, has been this triangle...

Carmelo Anthony views himself as an underrated superstar, an opinion he gave to ESPN earlier this month. He might be onto something. According to ESPN.com and the TrueHoop Network, Anthony is not even a top 10 player in the NBA.
Sometimes you get the idea the Knicks don’t need Phil Jackson around, even using him for cover until they get enough good players one of these days, nearly as much as we do in the big city. You can make a case, and it’s not really that hard now that the Yankees can’t use Derek Jeter for cover anymore, that the biggest sports guy in town is a 69-year-old man who has had hips replaced and knees replaced and even survived prostate cancer.

In ESPN’s latest NBA player rankings, Anthony comes in at No. 11 on the list of the NBA's 500 players. The rankings are decided by the ESPN Forecast panel, which rates each player on a 0-to-10 scale in terms of “the overall level of play for each player for the upcoming NBA season.
When Phil Jackson was hired as Knicks president, it was assumed that whomever he picked as coach would be nothing more than a Zen Master-clone, toeing the sideline with triangle philosophies piped in from the front office.
