Sheridan Hoops (James Park) —
Over the summer, Carmelo Anthony had the chance to put himself in position to be a part of one of the top contending teams in the league. He was a free agent, and the Chicago Bulls believed the small forward was the perfect offensive force to complete their team compromised of mostly defensively-dominant players. Of course, […]
NY Daily News (MITCH ABRAMSON) —
It wasn’t the best of circumstances to make his NBA starting debut, but Shane Larkin swears it wasn’t a big deal. Barely two hours before the start of the Knicks-Bulls game, Larkin received a startling bit of news.

The Knicks ' offense is going to take a long time to coalesce. Their defense will probably just suck. The Bulls will probably have one of the best defenses in the league. Their offense might have improved to that point as well. Pour those four ingredients into a 48-minute game and give 'em a shake and you've made yourself a strong mollywhopping. The Knicks got kicked in their asses on...
NY Daily News (JUSTIN TASCH) —
The returning Derrick Rose had plenty of time to take in the atmosphere at the Garden Wednesday night as he sat on the bench for the entire fourth quarter of Chicago’s 104-80 blowout win over the Knicks, and to him, the silence throughout the building spoke volumes.
Sheridan Hoops (Shlomo Sprung) —
Pau Gasol has everything the Chicago Bulls were missing in the past. Clearly Chicago needs a healthy Derrick Rose to compete for a championship, but Gasol looked every bit of the team’s missing part in Wednesday night’s 104-80 win over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Gasol scored 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in […]
NY Times (SCOTT CACCIOLA) —
The Bulls stormed past the Knicks, 104-80, to spoil Derek Fisher’s coaching debut and snuff some of his team’s early optimism.

The Knicks got drilled by 24 points in their season-opener Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden, drawing some boos from an unhappy home crowd in the process. Now they face the prospect of starting the season 0-2 since they must play LeBron James and the new-look Cavs less than 24 hours later. If the Bulls, who are […]

Square, octagon, hexagon, circle. The system may not matter. This collection of Knicks players looked that they just may not be good enough this season. Worse than getting outclassed, 104-80,...

ESPN (Ian Begley) —
As far as opening acts go, this one was pretty awful. The Knicks looked disjointed on offense and couldn’t get enough stops on defense, losing 104-80 to Chicago in their season opener. Moment of the game: The Knicks' lack of depth hurt them early on -- and ultimately decided the game. Carmelo Anthony was subbed out with 2:13 to play in the first and the Knicks up four. When he returned,...
NY Daily News (PETER BOTTE) —
There are three sides to every story, and to every triangle, but only one of them usually represents the truth. The Knicks certainly weren’t telling false tales when they maintained throughout training camp that their newly installed offensive system continues to be nowhere close to peak, or even acceptable, efficiency.
