lol really kurt getting the start?
Amar'e got a tiny boo boo, if this was a REAL game he would have played but its a "not that serious" game. they are mainly gonna use this game and maybe the next for the role players to see which ones are playing when and if any of the noobs deserve a spot after showcasing what they got in a "real" game

What J.R. Smith admitted "scared" him about #Knicks free agency. And it has nothing to do with his role. More:

J.R. Smith came to the Knicks to play with Carmelo Anthony, but this summer he was afraid of losing his favorite teammate to free agency.

“We were so nervous and scared that we weren’t going to be on the same team anymore," Smith said of Steve Novak.

Yes, Steve Novak.

"People asked me who I texted the most this summer," Novak told me recently. "When I tell them J.R., they're like, 'Yeah, right.' But it's true. We talked all the time. He's a great guy."

This is some Felix and Oscar stuff, which is why I've gotten to call them The Odd Couple on MSG Network.

And the two have a genuine appreciation of each other, and their games.

"We got so close in that little time that I got here at the end of the season last year, we had a little joke going," Smith told MSG's Tina Cervasio.

"Whenever he’s open, I’m on the bench or wherever I’m at yelling ‘Find him! Find him! Find him!’ Before you know it, they’re finding him and he’s hitting six or seven threes a game. I think it helped his confidence."

Novak marveled at Smith's unselfishness, especially considering the reputation that preceded him.

"He draws defenses so a lot of attention so when teams do decide to go double, or he makes someone help, he passes the ball so well to me," Novak told Cervasio. "I think the fact that we’re both perimeter threats makes us hard to guard on the floor at the same time . . . I think we definitely compliment each other well.”

They couldn't be more opposite off the court; modest family man from Wisconsin meets fun-loving tattooed baller from New Jersey. It's easily a better sitcom format than Two Broke Girls.

But despite the amusing diametrics, they formed a bond that went beyond stereotypes.

"I don’t think he understood that I was like that before I got there," Smith said. "I didn’t think people knew how close we were going to get. But just the relationship we had, Steve is so . . . he likes to talk, I like to talk, I mean, it makes it great for us. Especially as shooters. We do shooting drills every day after practice. It helps us on the team aspect, too.”

It creates a dynamic 1-2 scoring punch of the bench, as well. Smith may not be completely satisfied with being a reserve, but he is happy to be reunited with his favorite wingman.

they butted heads but who knows, maybe they can get past that...i mean, if you think about it ever since Josh came into the league he was always one of the oldest dudes in that locker room so no REAL veteran leadership (or at least somebody that can keep dudes focused) was around and of course u might get young dudes wilding the fu*k out

Berman

Did someone kidnap Steve Novak on the bus ride to Hartford Saturday? In the preseason game against the Celtics at XL Center, Novak was 1-of-6 from 3-point land and 3-of-5 on 2-pointers. Thats a statistical oddity that deserves an investigation.

Coach Mike Woodson explained it yesterday, saying the 3-point specialist has added a dimension to his game creating shots off the dribble. Novak was a catch-and-shoot machine from 3-point territory last season, leading the NBA in 3-point percentage (47.8). But that became the only way he could score.

In the last game, he made a couple of shots off the dribble, Woodson said. Thats something we didnt see [last season]. Thats something we talked about in the summer about developing. All it is, is two, three escape dribbles to get your shot. Hes been working on that. The next step is get him to take it all the way to the hole and make him get knocked on his [butt] and get to the free throw line.

Well, that may not happen anytime soon. Novak, who was 7-of-7 from 3-point range during he preseason opener in Washington, is as good at penetrating to the bucket as Alex Rodriguez is at avoiding attention.

I dont think its something youll see me do as my go-to stuff, but its just as good a weapon, Novak said of creating his shot off dribble penetration.. Put it on the floor, one, two dribbles. Nothing major.

It could be a major issue come playoff time. Last season, Miami shut down Novak, as the Heat never left him open at the 3-point stripe. Novak became a non-factor, hitting only four 3-pointers in the five-game series.

Novak is acutely aware of the criticism he received against Miami.

Theres a lot of talk about the Miami series, Novak said. Obviously we wanted to play better. But were moving on. Were improving from it, working harder this summer. It keeps coming up. Theres no doubt it left a bitter taste in our mouth. Well be better for it.

* While Jeremy Lin is on the cover of GQ, Carmelo Anthony is on the cover of Novembers Slam Magazine and now ESPN The Magazines NBA preview issue. Anthony probably wasnt thrilled to hear of Lins latest magazine cover, as Anthonys jealousy of Lin last season has been well-documented. In the preview issue, the dynamic is rehashed, with one new detail: Lin warned Anthony he wouldnt get the ball if he werent open.

Jeremy is a tough guy, an anonymous source said. He told Carmelo under no uncertain terms, Im not going to give you the ball unless you create space and run the plays. None of the other guys had a problem with it. Tyson [Chandler] didnt, Amare [Stoudemire] didnt. They knew they had a better chance with the ball in Lins hands in the last few minutes. ... As expected, the Knicks exercised their third-year option on Iman Shumperts rookie contract. Shumpert was named to the NBA All-Rookie first team last season.
