    Getty Is Donovan Mitchell finding a new home? New York Knicks fans started their courtship of Jazz star Donovan Mitchell immediately after Utah’s season came to an end.

The Jazz had another disappointing end to their season, and there was the thought process that Mitchell was out of there is they fizzled out yet again. That very scenario played out, so Knicks fans think they have a real shot at acquiring the star to build around. While nothing concrete has been revealed as of yet, there are some small teases that fans have been running with. Donovan Mitchell attended Game 7 of New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins series at Madison Square Garden and recorded a video that went viral on social media.

    Getty Washington Wizards star Kristaps Porzingis warms up prior to a game against the Detroit Pistons. The New York Knicks won a second consecutive game and their fifth in seven tries on Friday by outlasting the Wizards at Madison Square Garden, 100-97. As a result, the team leapfrogged Washington in the East standings to move into the No. 11 spot in the conference. New York’s latest win wasn’t just notable for the bump up the table, though. It also marked another Big Apple return for former All-Star big man Kristaps Porzingis who, at one time, was the center of the Knicks universe. For the most part, the Unicorn performed well in front of his former fans, scoring 18 points on just nine shot attempts and adding 11 rebounds and a blocked shot in the game. But he wasn’t exactly well-received during the homecoming.

    Getty Derrick Rose, New York Knicks Over the last seven games, the Knicks have been challenged with one of the tougher stretches they will face in this NBA season. They had three games against the Top 2 teams in the Eastern Conference, the Bulls and Nets, as well as last season’s playoff rival (the Hawks) and games against three West contenders—the Lakers, Nuggets and Suns. And it was ugly. The Knicks beat the Lakers, without LeBron James, and logged an impressive road win in Atlanta. Other than that, it was five losses, including the last three in a row. The Knicks fell below .500 for the first time this season with Saturday’s flop against Denver, and now stand at 11-12.

    Getty Carmelo Anthony waves to the crowd at Madison Square Garden during a 2019 game between the New York Knicks and Miami Heat. At this point, Carmelo Anthony has played for six different teams over an NBA career spanning nearly two decades. Moreover, it has been four-plus years since the New York Knicks traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder in September of 2017. In spite of the time that has passed, though, as well as all the things he has seen and done and all the buildings he has played in over the years, Anthony maintains that there’s still no place like home. And for him, home is Madison Square Garden. On Tuesday, the Knicks (9-8) will play host to Anthony’s Los Angeles Lakers (9-9) in a battle of teams looking to free themselves from the clutches of mediocrity. However, where Anthony is concerned, the game isn’t just about the current storylines. It’s about standing on that court, hearing the organ and being with those people once again. Carmelo Speaks out on His Bond With NYC &...

    GOP mayoral candidate and Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa says it’s time to nix city property-tax breaks for Madison Square Garden, top private universities and large hospitals. The call was the most eye-catching part of a 21-page “property tax reform plan” obtained by The Post that Sliwa is expected to drop next week. Sliwa said the cash generated would go toward a massive expansion of the NYPD, hiring thousands of new officers and resurrecting disbanded police units. “Refund the police. That is absolutely critical,” Sliwa said. “Look around Madison Square Garden now. Anarchy prevails. People are being shot, stabbed, killed on a regular basis. There is open drug dealing right in the shadow of Madison Square Garden. You see men injecting themselves in their neck with heroin. And [MSG owner James] Dolan isn’t sending his private security out there. We need the additional police.” Sliwa also said taxing mega city landholders like New York University and Columbia University — which his plan likened to “evil empires” — could generate a billion dollars annually. Higher-education tax breaks cost the city...

    VIDEO4:0304:03Andrew Yang discusses feasibility of universal basic incomeThe News with Shepard Smith Former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang is making universal basic income a central tenet of his political campaign once again — this time for New York City Mayor. "It makes us stronger, healthier, more secure, mentally healthier, improves our relationships," Yang said of the concept of guaranteed income. "55% of Americans are now for cash relief, in perpetuity, and 85% are for cash relief during this pandemic." Yang's proposed income program would extend an average of $2,000 per year to New York City residents living in extreme poverty and would cost $1 billion per year, according to his campaign website. The mayoral candidate told CNBC's "The News with Shepard Smith" Monday evening that he would target property tax-exempt landlords in New York City, like Madison Square Garden, to foot a portion of the bill.   "MSG's tax breaks [are] $40 million a year, alone," Yang said. "If you look at that money and you get it back into the city's hands, plus you invest some level of the...
