Finger-pointing in Knicks’ Locker Room?
In what has become an intriguing series for Xs and Os hoops geeks, it now is the Knicks coach’s turn to try to solve his way out of trouble before it is too late.
And he had better do it before the locker room frays, because that is a distinct possibility. Tyson Chandler has spent the past two days criticizing teammates for too much one-on-one offense and not enough rebounding.
Chandler did not name names, but many will interpret his remarks Sunday about failing to share the ball and trying to do too much — but not “maliciously,” heaven forbid — as being directed at Carmelo Anthony and/or J.R. Smith.
Of course, teammates could fairly point out that Chandler has been the series’ second-best starting center, by a wide margin behind Roy Hibbert.
