NBA has fined Knicks center Samuel Dalembert $15,000 for elbowing Jonas Valanciunas of the Toronto Raptors. No suspension.

Josh Smith seems to be a fit for every other team in the league judging by my timeline.

Jared Zwerling

If Josh Smith clears waivers, Dallas is intriguing (can sign for minimum). A Oak Hill Academy reunion b/w Josh & Rajon Rondo! They're close.

Chris Herring

Just thought about the Knicks, and how Woody would probably totally wanna explore picking up Josh Smith if he were still the coach.

Alan Hahn

Strong message sent here. RT @NBATV: BREAKING: Pistons waive Josh Smith

Ian Begley

Another example of why depth is an issue for #Knicks. With Carmelo on the court, the offense ranks 6th in the NBA. With him off, it's 27th.

Steve Popper

Good to be coach and team president, huh Stan?

Chris Herring

I'm still over here in shock. Wow, Stan. Sends a message loud and clear, though.

LOL. That TD run was straight-up awesome.

Brian Mahoney

Seeing many tweets about Cardinals' QB play, but not really any worse than the guy Jaworski hyped as one of the best ever did vs Seattle.

Brian Mahoney

The good folks @BKN_NETSPR, via Elias, say Drew Gooden holds the record with double-doubles for 10 NBA teams.

Brian Mahoney

Kobe, who was drafted just a year before Duncan, has played in 15 Christmas games to Duncan's 4.

Brian Mahoney

Tim Duncan will play in just his 5th Christmas game. Shows how much the Spurs were ignored for marquee TV time during much of his career.

JR Smith

No idea the record for this, but Jarrett Jack had a double-double for his 6th team tonight. Nets, Cavs, Warriors, Hornets, Blazers, Raptors.

Sixers knock off Orlando, which means the Knicks are now officially tied with Philly for last place in the standings.

Jose Manuel Calderon

Have to keep getting better as a team. Thks again Toronto for all the love Always special to be here and play in front of you guys #likehome

Chris Herring

Sounds funny, bc I know none of those three are good 2nd options. But as little talent as the Knicks have, looks even worse w/out those guys

Steve Popper

Melo: "Got 3 days to kind of get away from it for a bit ... to kind of decompress and try to get into the holiday spirit a little bit."

Chris Herring

This weekend marked 1st time in Melo's 250-gm NYK career that he'd taken the court without Amar'e, JR or Shumpert or playing alongside him

Chris Herring

Melo said at times it becomes difficult to generate power for different moves he uses on offense. And it's sometimes tough to shoot, he says

Chris Herring

Asked Melo where his knee bothers him most on defense (at SF, or at PF?). Said it impacts him far more on offense; even on wide-open shots.

Chris Herring

Melo, on how far the Knicks have fallen since their 54-win season: "I sit back and think about that sometimes." Says it's hard to believe.

Frank Isola

Carmelo on being 5-25: "It doesn't seem real."

Chris Herring

Also, Melo wearing a beanie today. No top hat, or fedora. This is different.

Chris Herring

Melo, on how he feels physically: "A little beat up; a little tired." Has played 78 mins over past two days on sore, troublesome left knee

Scott Cacciola

I feel bad pointing this out, but the GSW could lose every game they play until Feb. 3 and still not have as many losses as the Knicks.
