AROUND THE WEB:
• The Knicks and Nets, New York’s two underachieving NBA teams, meet up Thursday night in Brooklyn with a combined record of 8-26, and Knicks star Carmelo Anthony says it’s “a big game for us.”
The Knicks, losers of nine straight, head into the game with a 3-13 record, tied with the Bucks for fewest wins in the NBA.
“We are the laughingstock of the league,” Anthony said. “I mean, it’s nothing to hide. We are. … Do I like being laughed at? Hell, no. I don’t like that feeling.”
J.R. Smith backed his teammate, while noting that the New York-Brooklyn rivalry, hyped up before the season, has lost much of its luster due to the teams’ performance.
“Right now we do [stink]. I think everybody in this gym would agree,” Smith said. “There’s so much animosity between the two teams, but our record, for the team we have, isn’t really doing any justice. Right now we have to put the rivalry on hold and focus on each individual team as opposed to focusing on, “We don’t like them and they don’t like us.’ ”
Jason Kidd, the Nets coach who played for the Knicks last season, analyzed the matchup by saying, “We both stink.”
Responded Knicks coach Mike Woodson: “I somewhat agree, we do stink. … But [expletive], I can’t worry about Jason. I’ve got to worry about the New York Knicks. … I’m not going to throw in the towel.”
Said Anthony: “We do [stink]. He wasn’t lying about that. I mean, we do. For us, we’ve just got to figure it out and try to turn it around. Why not start [Thursday]?”
• Meanwhile, Lawrence Frank, demoted from top Nets assistant to glorified scout by Kidd, is not going away quietly. According to a report out of New York, Frank is hiring a high-powered attorney, apparently to negotiate a buyout from the team.
Kidd downplayed the fallout, saying: “It’s part of the job. He’s working. He’s giving his reports. … So, do I miss him? No. He’s doing his job and what I’ve asked him to do.”
Byron Scott, who coached Kidd with the Nets in the early 2000s with Frank as an assistant, knows both men well and said he isn’t shocked that the partnership did not last, as they are two “very strong-willed people who don’t back down.”
“It does surprise me a little that it happened so quickly,” Scott told the New York Post. “But it’s safe to say that I’m not [surprised] it happened at all because of the personalities involved.”
According to a report from Deadline.com, Heat star LeBron James will star in a movie with comedian Kevin Hart.
The movie, called “Ballers,” is about a man (Hart) who lives in the shadow of his brother (James), an NBA superstar, but gets a chance to prove himself at a weekend fantasy basketball camp in Miami.
The report indicates that James has been looking to star in a feature movie for a couple of years, and he’ll get his chance when the movie starts filming next summer.
Hart, who at 5-foot-3 is almost 1½ feet shorter than James, is a veteran of the celebrity game at All-Star Weekend.
