    Getty RJ Barrett #9 and Cam Reddish #21 of the New York Knicks converse on the bench against the Atlanta Hawks. The New York Knicks offseason is almost over as training camp officially starts Tuesday, September 27. While the season is almost here, the offseason gave fans a chance to see players work on their skills. Whether that be through individual workouts, pickup games or playing in pro-am leagues, it has been an active time off for the Knicks roster. Knicks teammates RJ Barrett, Cam Reddish and Trevor Keels returned to Duke University last week. Each of them were former players for the Duke Blue Devils under former Hall of Fame coach, Mike Krzyzewski. The three players were also one-and-done, playing only their freshman season before getting drafted. Barrett and Reddish were teammates during the 2018-2019 season at Duke. That team was notable for making basketball headlines due to their dominant performances and having an All-Star player in Zion Williamson, who ended being the first pick in the 2019 NBA draft. Though Williamson was the main attraction, both...
    Getty RJ Barrett. The New York Knicks have been busy this offseason as they’ve made a big splash by bringing in Jalen Brunson. Brunson signed a four-year deal in excess of $100 million, effectively anchoring the point guard spot for the foreseeable future. While he’s dominated much of the headlines so far, the Knicks have made some other important moves. Perhaps the biggest move outside of Brunson is the resigning of Mitchell Robinson. The Knicks starter was expected to test his free agency, and he was even drawing some interest from within the conference. Eventually he decided to come back to New York on a four-year, $60 million deal. Once news of the signing spread, Robinson’s teammate RJ Barrett, somebody due for his own pay bump soon, immediately congratulated the center on his new deal.Firm Handshakes from Barrett Money mitch ???????????????? https://t.co/Yr5HiKl9SW — Rj Barrett (@RjBarrett6) July 1, 2022 Barrett, responding to Adrian Wojnarowski’s tweet of the news, simply said “Money mitch” in congratulating his teammate on the new contract.

    Getty Images LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers. LeBron James returned for the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday in a 122-115 overtime win against the New York Knicks, making his presence felt with a triple-double. After the game, he shared a strong message for his Laker teammates that centered around one word — accountability. “It’s all about taking accountability for your own actions every game,” James said in his on-court interview with ESPN’s Malika Andrews. “If you want change, you have to look yourself in the mirror and demand more out of yourself and it’ll trick down to the rest of the ball club.” How do the Lakers go up from here? “It’s all about taking accountability for your own actions every game… If you want change you have to look yourself in the mirror and demand more out of yourself and it’ll trick down to the rest of the ball club.” Interview with LeBron James: pic.twitter.com/LaU2V30TUs — Malika Andrews (@malika_andrews) February 6, 2022 The Lakers were down by as many as 21 points against the Knicks...
    Knicks’ Evan Fournier brushes off pre-season shooting woes, Thibs drops wisdom Alexander Wilson October 18, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The preseason is essential for players to begin building chemistry, especially ones trying to adapt to a new team. The New York Knicks brought in two high-profile free agents this off-season in Evan Fournier and Kemba Walker, and while it will take a bit of time for them to gel with their new teammates, utilizing their existing skills is all management expects. During preseason play, Fournier struggled to get going, averaging 25.5 minutes over four games. He shot 35.5% from the field and only 30% from three-point range, a number the team expects to increase during the regular season and a larger sample size. Knicks’ head coach Tom Thibodeau stated that Fournier needs to focus on being himself rather than trying to adapt to his new teammates and find his role within the team. The front office signed him to be a lethal shooter...

Like Richardson, the director of the famed New York Gauchos AAU program, former Rice High School coach Moe Hicks, former Rice player Kashif Pratt, and former Rice assistant and Gauchos coach Dwayne Mitchell experienced the same hectic — though ecstatic — day. Everyone wanted to talk about the return of Kemba Walker, the Bronx native who has agreed to a contract with the Knicks after being bought out by the Oklahoma City Thunder. To many, the four-time All-Star, NCAA national champion and McDonald’s All-American is back where he belongs. “When I got [the news] I was in tears — tears of joy,” Richardson, who coached Walker from the eighth grade through the end of high school with the Gauchos and served as...
    New York Knicks forward Taj Gibson was emotional after the team’s Game 2 win over the Atlanta Hawks Wednesday night. Gibson, who scored six points and grabbed seven rebounds in the 101-92 win, recalled to reporters everything he, Derrick Rose and Tom Thibodeau had been through over the last few years to finally get back into a place where they feel like they can compete for an NBA title. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "It’s so surreal," Gibson said. "Like I tell the young guys, who wake up and they may not know where the path’s gonna lead them, where the game’s gonna take them, just trust your heart. Don’t worry about what nobody’s gonna say, because I sat years ago as a rookie or maybe my second year, every day with Thibs after practice talking about the Knicks, we talked about the battles, we talked about how great it would be to play them one day.  "And then for it to come true, then I’m playing with Derrick, who I’ve been playing with my whole career....
    Getty DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry during Game 4 of the 2018 Eastern Conference SemiFinals. The New York Knicks are back in the playoffs, but they’re far from being viewed as a contender. They’ll look to change that perception this offseason in free agency. New York finished out the regular season as the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference at 41-31, and are bracing for a first-round series against the fifth-seed Atlanta Hawks. Julius Randle earned an All-Star nod, is the clubhouse favorite for the Most Improved Player award, and is likely headed for All-NBA honors as well. Head coach Tom Thibodeau will finish as a finalist, if not the recipient, for Coach of the Year. And rookie Immanuel Quickley, the 25th pick from last year’s draft, is looking like a steal. Is that enough to requalify Madison Square Garden as a free agent destination?DeRozan, Lowry to New York?With the San Antonio Spurs eliminated from the play-in tournament behind a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, free-agent wing DeMar DeRozan will become the topic of regular discussion. The four-time...
    The Eastern Conference Player of the Week Award came to Julius Randle on Monday. That followed his first All-Star berth in March. And more honors are pouring his way. The Knicks southpaw power-forward freight train has turned the NBA on its ear in his seventh season. Randle is all but assured of being named among the forwards to one of the three All-NBA teams. He’s the leading candidate for Most Improved Player. And former Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy said on national television over the weekend Randle should be on somebody’s MVP ballot. Not crazy considering Randle has played in 57 of 58 games, and the Knicks would probably have a dozen victories without him. Instead Randle has led the Knicks to a 31-27 record, and on an NBA-high six-game winning streak entering Tuesday’s home game versus Charlotte. Randle prefers not to talk personal accolades but team victories — as stressed by NBA Coach of the Year candidate Tom Thibodeau. “Honestly, it’s really about the team,’’ Randle said Tuesday before the Knicks hosted the Hornets. “Me and Thibs will talk...
    ‘It’s like breakfast!’ RJ Barrett credits teammates for improved shooting By: Alder Almo April 9, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditNew York Knicks‘ second-year wing RJ Barrett’s chip on his shoulder is getting bigger by the day. All-Rookie Team snub. ESPN’s Best 25 under 25 snub. Anthony Edwards’ mockery of his missed game-winning shot. But each time Barrett is getting snubbed and mocked, he rises. Barrett has blossomed to become the New York Knicks’ No.2 option behind All-Star Julius Randle from a questionable third overall selection after his uneven rookie season. “My game speaks for itself,” Barrett said Friday ahead of his matchup with last year’s Rookie of the Year Ja Morant. “You know you can go and look at my numbers and our team’s success. It doesn’t really matter as long as I keep getting better as a player every day. I’ll be happy.” For the first time in the last seven years, the Knicks are playing meaningful games this late in the season, and a big part of that is because of Barrett’s...
    Many of the TV sets were shut off by the time the Knicks’ newest addition, center Norvel Pelle, entered Saturday’s contest at Little Caesar’s Arena in Detroit with 2:44 left for his team debut. The Knicks had already destroyed the Pistons from start to finish in a 125-81 mauling in Motown, building a 14-0 lead that turned into 41-15 after one quarter. The rest of the game was garbage time. It was a 44-point destruction sorely needed as the Knicks found their motor in the Motor City, no longer looking like they were ready for the junkyard. The Knicks snapped their three-game losing streak by posting the sixth-largest margin of victory in franchise history and got back to .500 at 25-25. But not before Pelle became an emblem of this tough Knicks team and this Motown romp. Not before this cameo performance by the 6-foot-10 neophyte from St. Croix. As he got the ball for the first time, Pelle was fouled on his way up for a dunk, and he jammed a finger into the iron rim. As he crash-landed,...

    NBA All-Star Julius Randle had to be restrained by his teammates Monday night after a controversial call in the final minutes of the Knicks-Nets game gave way to Brooklyn’s fifth straight win. The Knicks fought hard to get within reach of the Nets after trailing by 18 points in the first half. At 115-112 and with just seconds left, Randle went up for a 3-point attempt when Nets defender Kyrie Irving appeared to get a hand on the ball.  PATRICK EWING FURIOUS AFTER GETTING STOPPED BY MSG SECURITY: ‘IS MY NUMBER IN THE RAFTERS OR WHAT?’ The 26-year-old forward didn’t take the shot and dribble the ball before taking another but referee Scott Foster called a traveling violation. Randle pleaded his case to no avail but he wasn’t finished. After the buzzer, he went to approach Foster again but had to be restrained by several teammates before eventually being ushered back to the locker rooms by Knicks senior vice president William Wesley.  CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP When asked about the call after the game, Randle said...
    At least 3 dead after small plane crashes, hits SUV in South Florida U.S. shelters for migrant kids launch new COVID protocols A game-deciding blown call caused a furious New York Knicks to have to be escorted off the court on Monday, and you will be shocked to hear Scott Foster was involved. In the final seconds of the New York Knicks' game against their crosstown rival Brooklyn Nets, Julius Randle received the ball down three points with 5.7 seconds left. Randle jumped to take a 3-pointer contested by Kyrie Irving, but held onto the ball and landed. At first glance, it was a textbook up-and-down travel. A replay, however, showed Irving had actually hit the ball as Randle went up to shoot: Julius Randle was called for a travel down 3 and under 5 seconds remaining. Nets hold on to beat the Knicks. pic.twitter.com/VssyVvtzOr— ESPN (@espn) March 16, 2021 Randle instantly disputed Foster's traveling call, but the official didn't even let the call go to an instant replay. The Nets soon put the game away with a pair...
    Derrick Rose believes he and Tom Thibodeau always have made for an “odd couple.” To paraphrase another famous New York-based duo that went by that moniker, they fully expect to be able to share a third NBA stop together without driving each other crazy. Based on their reciprocal compliments of each other throughout this week, there is no reason to believe otherwise about their latest reunion with the Knicks. “The synergy that we have, I just can’t explain it,” Rose said after making the first appearance of his second stint with Knicks in Monday’s loss in Miami. “We’re an odd couple. We understand the game. We’re students of the game. Wherever I go, wherever he goes, he’s always trying to win and I’m on the same page.” Rose, now 32, became the youngest player in NBA history (22) to win league MVP honors in their first season together – the point guard’s third year in the league – with Chicago in 2011. After five seasons together with the Bulls – although Rose missed the entire 2012-13 campaign...
    After missing his first six shots of the preseason, RJ Barrett put up dynamic scoring numbers in Detroit — 15 in the opener Friday, 25 on Sunday. The 20-year-old is still not hitting his 3-pointer, but Barrett has begun his second season attacking, banging in mid-range jumpers and playing with pace. His rookie season was something of an inefficient mixed bag, though it was still shocking the third overall pick wasn’t selected to one of the league’s two all-rookie teams. “It’s a little slower, a little more comfortable, knowing what to expect a little more,’’ Barrett said after Sunday’s 99-91 loss. “You know how certain teams and coaches, what their schemes will be. I’m just getting more comfortable.’’ But not comfortable enough to eliminate turnovers. Barrett had four to go along with his 25-point night. He raised the subject on Zoom — a good sign. Barrett also had two turnovers in the opener. It’s not all about his points. “I need to do a lot better job,’’ Barrett said. “My teammates are ahead of me in great positions. I...
