NEW YORK -- Iman Shumpert is angry "at the world." And that seems like a good thing for the Knicks. Shortly after telling MSG Network's Tina Cervasio that he was "pissed off ... at the world," Shumpert took the court and scored 10 points in 25 minutes in the Knicks' 38-point win over Orlando. Those numbers aren't eye-popping, but one of Shumpert's field goals certainly was. In the third quarter, Shumpert drove the lane and finished with a thunderous right-handed dunk in between two Magic defenders to give the Knicks a 16-point lead.

Was it the white uniforms? Was it the extra three-point practice? Or did the Knicks' win over the Nets on Thursday give them some sort of Karmic release and jolt them into looking like the team everyone thought they could be.

In an interview with USA Today, Oak Hill Academy's head coach Steve Smith claimed that Carmelo Anthony is lobbying Rajon Rondo to join him on the sinking ship that is the New York Knicks. In a word: no. We've heard murmurs between the teams before. First, it was the garbage pile of Shumpert/Felton/Stoudemire...

In theory, it all made sense. The Brooklyn Nets were trying to infiltrate the New York market, where anyone who’s anyone likes the New York Knicks. They figured, with a billionaire owner and a $1 billion arena, they could make several splashes, acquire star talent and compete immediately. Maybe they wouldn’t win a championship. Maybe they would. Either way, they were going to be in the conversation. They were trying to build a fan base and generate revenue.

NEW YORK -- In the middle of a letdown start to the season with a guaranteed dose of uncertainty to follow, there is one thing the New York Knicks can count on. Carmelo Anthony is going to do what is best for Carmelo Anthony. Not the team he's on, not the team he's planning to be on, but himself. He isn't the first player (and won't be the last) to look out for No. 1, but it's a clear principle to constantly keep in mind when examining Anthony's future.

There was a common theme coming out of the Knicks' locker room after Thursday's win over the Nets. Many Knicks -- coach Mike Woodson included -- said the team's play reminded them of the 2012-13 team that won 54 games and a first-round playoff series. "It looked like the Knicks of old," Woodson said. Even Nets coach, and former Knick, Jason Kidd agreed. "Tonight they looked a lot like they did last year," Kidd said. Last season the Knicks raced out to an 18-6 start on the strength of ball movement, solid 3-point shooting and a low turnover rate.

Jason Kidd’s presence alone was worth every penny last season as the wise old point guard helped turn the eternally dysfunctional Knicks into a competent, cohesive and winning basketball team. Apparently, Kidd still has that same effect.

Iman Shumpert finally got back to playing like he did last spring when he was one of the Knicks’ top players in the postseason. Shumpert produced his best game of the season, scoring 17 points with six rebounds in the Knicks’ 113-83 victory.
The Knicks and Nets entered play Thursday with terrible records. So no one looked at the year's first Knicks-Nets game as some passionate game between rivals. But it seemed to light a fire under Andrea Bargnani. Bargnani scored 16 points on 7-for-13 shooting. He also had three blocks. But all anyone wanted to talk to Bargnani about was his fourth-quarter run-in with noted bully Kevin Garnett. Bargnani got tangled up with Garnett as a rebound came off the rim early in the fourth quarter.
Maybe the Knicks should rethink their plans to trade Iman Shumpert. The third-year guard played his best game of the season when New York seemed to need it most, finishing with 17 points, six rebounds and two steals in a 113-83 win over Brooklyn. Shumpert was incredibly efficient, hitting 5-of-7 shots from beyond the arc. "He looked like he had a chip on his shoulder," Carmelo Anthony said. "I think everybody looked like they had that feeling like we were tired of losing.
Carmelo Anthony scurried over to the Nets' bench just before tipoff, making a beeline there to say hello to a familiar face.
The Knicks have been effusive in their support for seemingly embattled coach Mike Woodson. But words mean little if you don't back them up, and Thursday night, the Knicks did.
NEW YORK -- New York Knicks center Andrea Bargnani was ejected for talking trash to Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Garnett in the fourth quarter of New York’s 113-83 blowout win over Brooklyn on Thursday -- but Garnett claimed he didn’t know what Bargnani said. “I don’t understand Italian,” Garnett said after the game. Asked if Bargnani said something “nice” to him, Garnett responded, “Next question.” Bargnani didn't want to get into specifics after the game but did say, “I wasn't speaking Italian but that's not important.
Carmelo Anthony denied an ESPN report that said he already has made up his mind to take his talents elsewhere when he becomes a free agent this summer.
