GAME RECAP – Knicks 103, Celtics 102

At last, the wait is over.

Some five months after the Knicks were eliminated from the 2013 NBA Playoffs by the Indiana Pacers, New York’s basketball team finally returned to action last night, outlasting the Boston Celtics in their preseason opener, 103-102.

It was an off-season of change for the ‘Bockers, both on the roster and in the front office, so after weeks of training camp, scrimmages, and random Metta World Peace antics, fans have been more than eager to see what the newly constituted Knicks roster was capable of. And for brief stretches, anyway, New York didn’t disappoint. Of course, no on-court Knicks action would be complete without some off-court drama. The game was somewhat overshadowed by rampant starting lineup chatter involving reigning Sixth Man of the Year, J.R. Smith, and Iman Shumpert, the latter seemingly making it a point to show to Mike Woodson that he is capable of starting at shooting guard for the Knicks.

ICYMI, coach Woodson had said after the team’s final practice on Tuesday that he wasn’t sure who Shumpert was as a player, telling New York Daily News‘ Mitch Abramson, “He’s still a young player, but you like to think he’s grown some, mentally as well as physically, but [he] still has a ways to go.” Ironically, Shumpert was perfect at the Dunkin Donuts Center. No, really, he was, scoring 18 points on 7-of-7 shooting, with 3 three-pointers, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists. Oh, he also had zero turnovers in 25 minutes, while displaying his typical agility and leadership on defense. It should be noted, too, that Shumpert was extremely supportive of his teammates, particularly the fourth quarter unit who allowed Boston to get back into the game. In fact, when Tim Hardaway Jr. knocked down the game winning shot, Shumpert could be seen jumping off the bench and celebrating exuberantly.

Most importantly, however, Shumpert appeared extremely confident on the offensive end of the floor, a quality that has been inconsistent at times during his brief NBA career. It’s hard to imagine that Woodson will be able to keep him out of the starting lineup if he continues to perform like this throughout the rest of the preseason, but when asked about starting, Shumpert told ESPN’s Ian Begley, “I don’t really care who I play with. As long as we win, I’m happy.”

Words are words, but there is no use in denying that Shumpert knows what he wants. If he keeps playing like he did last night, who’s to say he won’t get it, too.

WHAT WENT RIGHT: 

  • The regulars looked brilliant tonight. Carmelo Anthony was en fuego to start the game, hitting his first three shots of the evening. Tyson Chandler also joined the perfection party, knocking down 3-of-3 attempts, including a 15-foot jumper by the baseline. (Much has been made of Tyson working on his jumper, so perhaps this is a sign of what’s to come. the always on-point Mike Breen said it best, mentioning that Chandler doesn’t need to rely on mid-range shooting, but if he can bury one or two consistent jumpers per game, it’ll open up the paint for his teammates.) Raymond Felton looked rather swell, too, making a handful floaters, dishing some pretty dimes and generally directing traffic.
  • Enter Pablo Prigioni. Prigs didn’t bring it statistically, but his play was crucial in the early stages of the game when the Knicks were trying to establish their defensive identity. In a span of 14 seconds, he forced two Celtic turnovers, one during an inbounds play and the next when Prigs forced Avery Bradley to step out of bounds and lose control of the ball. Thanks Pablo! We need more of that this season. Please don’t hurt yourself.
  • In what hopefully doesn’t become a dreadful metaphor for his Knicks-tenure, Andrea Bargnani was called for a charge on his first offensive possession of the season, but Bargs surprisingly looked pretty good thereafter. When he was given the ball on the wings, Bargnani went to work and used a deadly head fake that is sure to draw a  ton of fouls going forward. By the end of his night, Bargnani racked up 12 points of some very nice off-the-dribble shots, 3 rebounds, and an assist.
  • The other new Knicks, Beno Udrih and Tim Hardaway Jr. also contributed in solid debuts. Udrih didn’t do much scoring, but he delivered clean, crisp passes throughout the affair, and kept his hands active on defense. As New York’s newly anointed “rook,” Hardaway Jr.  had an extremely memorable evening, hititng the eventual game-winner and dropping 16 points in all on 6-of-10 shooting, including 3 three-pointers. He looked comfortable on the court and it didn’t appear that his Summer League wrist injury affected him at all. If Hardaway can give the Knicks an offensive boost in limited minutes this season (especially from beyond the arc), what is already a deep roster will be that much more deadly for opposing defenses.
  • If you didn’t catch Metta World Peace‘s pregame interview with Tina Cervasio, you missed a real treat. Any time a professional athlete admits that he has no idea what city or arena he is playing in, you know you’re in for a special night. On the court, Artest played 22 hard-nosed, hustle-filled minutes. He also shot the ball well, highlighted by a pretty spin-around-a-few-times fade-away jumper in the second half.
  • Cole Aldrich did his thing, grabbing rebounds and hustling for loose balls as he fights to make the team. (He also missed a dunk, which provided lolz for days, though). A World Peace/Aldrich tandem is intriguing from a defensive perspective, but the possibility of a Cole World tandem might make J. Cole mad. But, I digress.

WHAT WENT WRONG: 

  • It’s a new season, but that doesn’t mean that the Knicks avoided getting out-rebounded by their opponent. Sigh. The Celtics, despite not having tall players, exposed the Knicks’ rebounding-allergy, a problem that simply must be addressed if New York’s championship aspirations are to be legitimized. God only knows what will happen if they face a significantly large front-court. (The Detroit Pistons come to mind.)
  • There was more than a few lapses on defense due to miscommunication on pick-and-rolls. Whether due to laziness or simplybecause it was the first game of the preseason, this is something that “defensive mastermind” Woodson is going to have to fix. And quickly.
  • Chris Smith.

KNICK KNACKS: 

  • Clyde’s fashion was in mid-season form. Not just anyone can sport a peach-colored suit over a shiny charcoal shirt and orange polka-dotted tie.
  • A fashion maven, sure, but Clyde predictably had some trouble pronouncing Udrih and Bargnani’s names. It should be a can’t-miss listen whenever those guys are on the court. Good luck with that, Clyde! Breen had some issues, too, at one point accidentally saying Bargioni instead of Bargnani. #BargnaniPrigioniFusion, FTW!
  • Woodson changed up his facial hair! Mr. Potato Head kept the trademark goatee, but he also added some kind of five o’clock shadow beard. Whatever, it looked amazing.
  • New York travels to Toronto –  watch out, Novak and Drake! – this Friday at 7:00 p.m before facing the Celtics again on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

          “ok”

          • nylsjd

            isn’t your name knicksnnets?

          • Knickels n Dimes

            no, if u look at my name it says “Knickels n DImes”

  • nylsjd

    I don’t see the rationale for why the Celtics need to trade Rondo. He’s their premier player and they have 300 draft picks over the next 3 years. He’s a guy they can build around. Elite PGs are hard to come by.

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      they wont be an elite team until when hes like 32-34

      whats the point of that.

      • nylsjd

        says who? They have 3 positions set with Rondo, Bradley, Green. Rondo is only 27 right now. They have 2 first rounders and 3 second rounders next year in a very deep draft. 2 first rounders in 2015, 2 first rounders in 2016, and 2 in 2017 lol. Why would they trade Rondo for more picks?

    • GottaKeepItReal

      yeah plus im under the impression he wants to embrace the challenge of bein the number one guy, not shadowed by HoF talent/coach. They got pieces there too to develop and draft picks, and hes gotta ring, so that pressure is off

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    yo eric

    u back?

    • Ericknicks

      yeah wats up lol

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        nm man jc here with these herbs

  • Ericknicks

    Who want rondo now? Or keep Shump?

    • GottaKeepItReal

      screw Rondo, we good w Felton and Shump

      • GottaKeepItReal

        its gonna be the same ish w Nash, we need a PG that can do his job, not dominate the ball. We got Melo to dominate when we need to where Rondo becomes a spot up shooter where hes ineffective…..He doesnt fit, and Felton is a solid PG

        • Knickels n Dimes

          rondo can shoot

          • GottaKeepItReal

            compared to who? hes a below avg shooter for a pg

          • Knickels n Dimes

            his stats might say otherwise, but I’ve seen him get hot before

          • GottaKeepItReal

            true but not consistent enough to be labeled as a shooter perse

    • Long.Live.A$AP

        then he asks why Im even brining up Melo……. all i could do was smh

        • jtru001

        • godsent224

          I liked what I saw from a lot of guys. I need to see more more Aldrich, Powell, and Diouge (mispelled) though.

          • jtru001

            i agree…also like to see lil thirst cut lol

          • godsent224

            who is that Smith? lmao hell yeah he needs to go

          • jtru001

            JR’s brother lol

    • nylsjd

      lmao i need more context but that seems absolutely insane

  • Ericknicks

    Bargs can ball I like his game

    • nylsjd

      he’s a lot better when he doesn’t have to be the main guy

      • Ericknicks

        Yeah when he played for canada

  • jtru001

    im glad Bargs didnt play in Eurobasket…his shot seemed rusty but that will get cleaned up…he gonna be aiite

    • Ericknicks

      Yeah I like that head fake he catching niggas lol

      • nylsjd

        with traps?

        • Ericknicks

    • nylsjd

      gotta love fake pneumonia

  • Ericknicks

    Steven a said heat gonna 3 peat just now

    • jtru001

      fxck SAS

    • Long.Live.A$AP

      SAS is a herb

    • nylsjd

      really going out on a limb with that one

  • Ericknicks

    Jt would you give up Shump for rondo or lamarcus albrigde in a trade

    • nylsjd

      either or

    • jtru001

      yes and depends on the package for aldrige…but i would trade shump for rondo and i love shump but rondo > shump and its not even close

  • Long.Live.A$AP

    Before u know it SAS is gonna jump the knicks bandwagon again

    • Ericknicks

      Lol yup it’s coming

  • Long.Live.A$AP

    Shump showed danny Ainge what he got yesterday

    • theflyeststar

      shump looks like an all star

  • theflyeststar

    dope article, gotta give credit where its due our boy jonas did his thing with this website

    • jtru001

      yea he did lets not fxck it up tho i dont wanna move again

      • theflyeststar

        lol word i agree

  • Ericknicks

    Sas said Knicks should go for rondo but than he said I would keep Shump lol

    • Long.Live.A$AP

      Lmao impossible

  • nylsjd

    totally forgot about ryan andersens girl

    • Long.Live.A$AP

      To soon

      • nylsjd

        They just had an article on him saying he’s a mess… totally forgot that happened is all i’m saying

  • Ericknicks

    You can do Shump Felton nd stat for rondo hump nd another scrub to make money match lol

    • theflyeststar

      shump > rondo

      • jtru001

        nah fly he is not…i like shump he one of my favs but Rondo >>>>>shump

        • theflyeststar

          rondo is overrated imo, without kg and pierce he’s average

          • jtru001

            yet to be determined….but Rondo w/ Melo, bargs, metta jr etc…would be dope

          • theflyeststar

            i feel you, i just never liked rondos game, he can’t shoot and his ball handling is average

          • jtru001

            he is one of the few pass first type PG left in the game tho…he gets dudes involved

          • theflyeststar

            true

          • nylsjd

            outside of lebron, he’s the only guy in the league that could potentially average a triple double per night

          • theflyeststar

            no way lol, lebron can’t average a triple double either

          • nylsjd

            yes way

          • theflyeststar

            lol reminds me of wayne and garth

  • godsent224

    Shump looks like he gonna take that major leap and dudes are still talking about trading him? smh

    • theflyeststar

      word

    • Ericknicks

      Not us Dolan lol

      • godsent224

        I never believed that shtt. SAS was talking out his ass

        • Knickels n Dimes

          I don’t think he would just make it up…

          • godsent224

            lol why not?

          • Knickels n Dimes

            cuz it seems pretty low for him to make that up. I don’t know SAS in real life, but he seems like he’s not that type of person

          • nylsjd

            but do you know him in fake life?

          • Knickels n Dimes

            I think I’ve watched enough first take, and listened to enough of his podcasts to know him in fake life…

          • jtru001

            SAS makes ish up all the time

        • jtru001

          like he did w/ the LBJ and Melo joining Kobe in LA lmaooo

    • jtru001

      im good w/ shump lol…eric brought it up tho so im being honest…

    • nylsjd

      You wouldn’t trade him for Rondo or Aldridge?

      • godsent224

        Nope. Rondo about to be a free agent

        • nylsjd

          in 2015

        • nylsjd

          But why would you not trade him for either of those players? He’s certainly not better than either one.

          • godsent224

            because trading for those guys doesnt guarantee you anything except getting older.

          • nylsjd

            and better… since they’re better players at our two weakest positions

  • Long.Live.A$AP

    Our whole third unit for rondo lol

    • nylsjd

      and MSG… it’s gonna be gone in 10 years anyway

      • theflyeststar

        rofl

    • Ericknicks

      Lmao

  • Ericknicks

    We don’t wanna really trade Shump but Dolan gonna do it cuss he want that guy lol

    • Long.Live.A$AP

      Dolan is just the ATM noting more

      • Ericknicks

        Yeah lol

  • Ericknicks

    The bears gonna smash the giants lol

  • Ericknicks

    If Boston called nd said you wanna trade for rondo y’all would pass?

    • nylsjd

      No… I’d say let’s get a deal done. Take anyone but Melo

  • Knickels n Dimes

    If SAS did make that up tho, I would have no respect for him…

    • Ericknicks

      Make wat up about Shump?

      • Knickels n Dimes

        yea

    • godsent224

      Why you think he never wanted to talk about it after the video got out? He has no inside ppl at MSG thats why he was always bitching about Grunwald not talking to him

      • Knickels n Dimes

        he did talk about it on first take, but yea he does bitch about not gettin to talk to grunwald

        • godsent224

          He didnt say shtt but a brief comment.

  • Long.Live.A$AP

    “I love here in Boston”
    -Rondo never mind

    • nylsjd

      team has no incentive to trade him anyway… how many more first round draft picks do they want? they can give us 3 over the next five years and still be set

  • Ericknicks

    Lol I’m cool with Shump but I just think rondo gonna want out soon

    • nylsjd

      i disagree… for what purpose? they’re not THAT far off and they’re loaded with draft picks

  • theflyeststar

    rondo reminds me of eric snow, hard nosed great defender always gives great effort but lacks real talent

    • GottaKeepItReal

      lol damn Eric Snow…

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        dude was pretty good

        • GottaKeepItReal

          werd, but Rondo still lil more talented

      • theflyeststar

        lls snow worked hard though

        • GottaKeepItReal

          true true

    • nylsjd

      lacks real talent? he’s averaged over 11 assists the last 3 seasons lol. Great rebounder, shoots right around 50%, with a true shooting % above that number. he knows his limits and plays within them.

    • Knickels n Dimes

      I think we talkin bout the wrong rondo….

      • theflyeststar

        rondo is a better vonteego cummings

  • Ericknicks

    Forget rondo we staying wit Shump

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      no, shump for rondo is a great deal

      IMO

    • Long.Live.A$AP

      Lol u bipolar

      • Knickels n Dimes

        hehe

    • nylsjd

      boston wouldn’t make the trade anyway, it’s pure hypo

  • Ericknicks

    People say no keep Shump then they say no take rondo if you can lol

    • GottaKeepItReal

      thats just you

  • nylsjd

    if i’m the Knicks… I take Shump and send him to Portland for LaMarcus right now… rebounding is our biggest weakness right now and he would solve that as well as front court scoring. Get Bargs coming off the bench, provides insurance for our $100M fashionista

    • Long.Live.A$AP

      But we already have bargs it will be all fuck up

      • nylsjd

        i just expect nothing from Donatella Versace, i mean STAT

        • theflyeststar

          donatella versace bahahahahahahahahahahah

    • theflyeststar

      we would have to give up too much to make the salaries match

      • nylsjd

        that’s the biggest problem. that’s why my proposal is totally irrational, but i’d send them Felton and his buffet to match up the salaries

        • theflyeststar

          lmao!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ericknicks

    Na keep Shump he younger than rondo nd lamarcus lol

    • nylsjd

      so the nets should’ve kept Gerald Wallace over Paul Pierce?

  • Long.Live.A$AP

    I don’t want hardaway to leave

    • theflyeststar

      i can’t believe i doubted him, im so hyped he’s good, we need to keep him

  • Ericknicks

    Shump can score 15 points a game we straight

    • GottaKeepItReal

      that would be beast lol, double his career avg

    • theflyeststar

      he needs at least 35 minutes per game this year

      • GottaKeepItReal

        unless Woodson gets his mouth off JRs nuts, dont see that happenin

        • theflyeststar

          i feel like woody should start iman and jr with melo at the 4

          • GottaKeepItReal

            HELL nah

          • theflyeststar

            lls too small?

          • GottaKeepItReal

            JR gonna compete w Shumper for shots/usage, nd they both end up forcing and looking dumb.

          • GottaKeepItReal

            Shump aint takn the backseat to JR nymore

          • theflyeststar

            you think so? they always played well together especially last season

          • GottaKeepItReal

            Shump was still passive cuz of JR, but Shump lookn as effective as him and more mature 3rd season in than JRs like 9-10th

          • theflyeststar

            i like them on the floor together cuz their our 2nd and 3rd best players, and their the best athletes, they never seem to get in each other’s way they usually look for each other especially on the break

          • GottaKeepItReal

            I feel you I mean who knows, im down to see it this year as an experiment at times. But Bargs in that top 3, Shump/JR fighting for 3rd option

          • theflyeststar

            bargs looks good im so glad we got him

          • GottaKeepItReal

            trudat

    • nylsjd

      Asking him to score 8 more ppg than he did last year. He shows flashes but is too inconsistent right now

  • Long.Live.A$AP

    Bargs THJR and third unit for rondo

  • Ericknicks

    All Shump gotta do is score nd everything a be fine

    • Long.Live.A$AP

      He can defend too

      • Ericknicks

        Yes I know

  • godsent224

    right now im not trading anyone before the deadline except for Amare, and i love Stat

    • Ericknicks

      Trade him for scubs lol

    • Long.Live.A$AP

      That third unit I’m definelty trading

    • theflyeststar

      amare is broken no one wants him

  • Ericknicks

    Yeah stat is the only one that needs to be traded lol

    • nylsjd

      He wll repay us fans next trade deadline (2014-2015)

  • Ericknicks

    Stat for hump fries and Gerald crack head Wallace those contracts match lol

    • nylsjd

      but two of them can actually play

      • Ericknicks

        Yes they can come in handy

  • godsent224

    Anyone know why Murry didnt play? Is he hurt?

    • Ericknicks

      He probably play tommorow

      • Knickels n Dimes

        he better

  • Ericknicks

    We just need to ride with the squad we got now f it

  • Ericknicks

    I think that’s what Steve mills here to do trade stat

  • godsent224

    I dont want to hate on Chris Smith but he shouldnt even be in camp.

    • theflyeststar

      lls

  • Ericknicks

    ASAP hardaway better stay he can ball

  • nylsjd

    Jets bringing in David Garrard

  • Ericknicks

    Chris smith make brick layers rich

  • godsent224

    Mad anppl was hating on Hardaway now they know he can ball

    • Ericknicks

      He straight

    • nylsjd

      There wre allegedly two teams in the lottery that would’ve taken him over Burke if they were giong to draft either of them

  • Ericknicks

    We should just trade stat for hump fries nd Wallace from Boston

    • nylsjd

      They can’t be traded until midseason anyway and why would Boston do that deal?

      • Ericknicks

        Cuss contracts

        • nylsjd

          so they use their expriring Humphries contract to get STAT? makes absolutely no sense

          • Ericknicks

            If you say so lol

          • nylsjd

            why would you use your best trade chip to get STAT?

        • godsent224

          I rather have Stat sit the bench then be stuck with Wallaces contract after 2015

  • Ericknicks

    If hardaway Shump no jr bring they game it’s gonna be crazy lol

  • Ericknicks

    F it we don’t need no trades just need everybody to bring it lol

    • jtru001

      true im not looking for any deals unless its one for stat really that is the only one on the block or maybe TC but we would have to greatly improve to move them imo

      • nylsjd

        STAT can’t be moved until the 2014-2015 trade deadline

        • jtru001

          truth

  • GottaKeepItReal

    “Carmelo said Bargnani should think about decreasing his shot fakes this year bec he’ll have so many open looks.”

    • theflyeststar

      i like that bargs is versatile, putting the ball on the floor, posting up, running the break, shooting threes, etc

  • Ericknicks

    Wat y’all think about cole Aldridge backing up Tyson

    • nylsjd

      Aldrich is the third center, at most

    • godsent224

      I thought he looked slow in the first half a little better in the second. Got to see more

    • theflyeststar

      i need to see more of aldridge

  • Ericknicks

    If all the people that we got that we know can ball ball out we don’t need no trades

    • theflyeststar

      we just need good health

    • nylsjd

      sure… if you’re content with the second round again… we are very clearly behind the Heat, Bulls and Pacers

  • godsent224

    Tyson’s jumper looked money last night. If he can hit 2 of those a game teams are in trouble

  • theflyeststar

  • Ericknicks

    If you think we gonna get booted in the second round Than we need a trade

    • nylsjd

      i’m just not getting hyped over a preseason win over a mediocre to bad celtics team… the Heat, Pacers and Bulls are very very good

  • Ericknicks

    I think the Knicks a be fine against bulls nd heat this year

    • GottaKeepItReal

      so lose by 2-8 pts?

    • theflyeststar

      imo this knick team can play with anyone, to me it boils down to who wants it more cuz we have more than enough talent

      • Ericknicks

        Yeah you right

    • nylsjd

      ok. since you say so. we’ll put the talent of the teams aside for a moment then.

  • Gray wolf

    Pre season is for the team to form a cohesive bond ,they showed it! THJR ,METTA BARGS ,TYSON SHOWED CHARCTER. THIS TEAM CAN GO SOMEWHERE THIS YEAR,ALDRICH IS A KEEPER! The more time on the floor the more experience he will gain. Nice give and go METTTA AND SHUMP! We will hang with the best of them!!!!!

    • godsent224

      im not sold on Aldrich yet.

      • Gray wolf

        be patient with him bro, he is going to really help when filling in for TYSON!!

      • Gate-7-

        REally he had a rough first half… but he was part of that mid 3rd quarter early 4th lineup that got us the 20 point differential. Im sold on him. He’s a big body who can rebound acceptably, has an offensive game (can move with ball in hand around the basket) .

        With Chandler him, and Kmart we have a 5 spot that has 3 players with very different styles which gives us flexibility on a gameday basis

        • Gray wolf

          EXACTLY!!!!

  • Gate-7-

    with the exception of the bulls, heat, maybe OKC who we’d have to battle down to the last minute for every win (teams like Rockets, Pacers,Spurs, NETS, Lakers who are good this year theoretically but arent heavy teams you fear) there arent many other teams out there that I think are better than us. On paper….we are stacked for 1st second unit….. on the court…. we need to find harmony ….once we have that I think we’re a 2nd round place off team without a doubt….then from there its all about heart

    • GottaKeepItReal

      I think we can beat the Lakers handily, they dont have a 2nd unit. Im also more concerned w Bulls/Heat than I am w Pacers for some reason. Nets still a mystery atm, hard to rate em

      • GottaKeepItReal

        but I like our depth, and having Melo is obviously such an advantage against the majority of teams in the league

      • Gate-7-

        Yeah thats what I said…… Bulls Heat OKC are the only team that I think this team will have to play ALL heart to beat

        • nylsjd

          The Spurs are the top team in the West

          • Gate-7-

            Theoretically.

            No team but the reigning champion can be assumed to be top until they play.

            Anyway Spurs are also 1 year older this season. As good as they are at fighting it…. this will play a role.

          • nylsjd

            they’re better than last year

          • Gate-7-

            how so? you cant make that argument when talking an aging roster of starters.

            They picked up nobody of OBVIOUS impact starting five caliber

  • Gray wolf

    Knicks must stay HEALTHY! STAT WILL contribute this team has aREAL CHANCE AT BEING SPECIAL, JR must come to play smart and everyone must must play DEFENSE! KNICKS TAPE FOREVER!!!!!

  • Gray wolf

    Just think FAM KENYON,STAT ,JR DID NOT PLAY!!!!!! THIS TEAM WILL BE TRULY DEEP FINALLY!!!!!!!!

    • nylsjd

      The problem is that the east is loaded… Miami, Chicago, Indiana, NJ all got better… Who knows how Detroit will be, Cleveland, Toronto

      That’s not reality at all…. especially seeing you can only dress 13

    Invite Daniel Orton in to compete!

    • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

      yup, he was just waived.

        nice new icon

      not saying that we won’t… just acknowledging we were lucky to be a 2 seed (based on stats) and other teams got better

      • GottaKeepItReal

        could you imagine if have another above expectations season, and we win the GM of the year award…even tho we let go of the one that assembled this roster

        • nylsjd

          i would LOVE to see that lol

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    I like how NYLS put “NJ” lmao.

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    lmao jt responding to posts from 40 minutes ago….you’re crashing my computer man!

    • jtru001

      my bad

  • jtru001

    yooo

    • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

      whats good bro

      • jtru001

        chillen man…glad to finally have some ball..

  • Gate-7-

    With our geriatrics last season and with key players out during big games see Spurs, Heat,OKC.

    There is no reason to assume this younger , better team (comparatively speaking) will not be a 3-4 seed.Depending on how strong the Bulls come on…. there are small about present hopes for the #2

    • jtru001

      im thinking depending on health and how are players are used througout the season i can see a 2 seed…realistically tho 3-4 is prolly fair.

    • nylsjd

      Sure there is… There are 3 teams clearly better than us lol… We beat the Heat by 30 one game without Melo. It didn’t matter that we were missing a key player there. We had a crazy comeback against the Spurs one game too. I’m sorry, but i’m not seeing your point.

      • Gate-7-

        Wait how many times did we beat the heat last season?

        My point which you clearly missed is that with an older , weaker team we managed to pull wins out with and without key players……. IF you can do that with that team who’s to say you cant do it wwith a theoretically better team this year.

        Did the Spurs get better? No
        Did the heat? No they got beasely..average aquisition for THAT team in particular

        Pacers got back their star but we never beat them in reg season anyway much like the Bulls and still ended second…..

        What dont you understand?

        • nylsjd

          How did the Spurs NOT get better?… the Heat have the best player in the world and added Oden who may be the C they’ve always been missing. You’re not making any point at all, that’s what I don’t understand. We pulled out wins without key players, so what? We went through really bad stretches with our key players. It all evens out. We were middle of the road in terms of team statistics. Take out the 13 game winning streak which was the longest in how many years and what do you hvae? Better yet, take out the 7-0 start too.

          • Gate-7-

            IF ODEN ever plays…… sure…… but the best player in the world now has an aged sidekick in Wade and topsy turvy PF-C in Bosh…..

            Now why would we remove our winning streaks? were they irrelevant…? lol that point made no sense bro……. We played to and above our potential thus our streak. to say we should just negate winning streaks …well why dont you just say to hell with the Heat and their streak……….. if we take THAT out well…. what do we got…..?

            Everytime we start talking about one team… I counter and you bring in some other team… that I clearly never made the argument for to begin with.

            the heat will be top … forget them…. we’re talking regular season….. and as the best team……. what THEY do is irrelevant to THIS discussion bro.

            Now you asked about the Pacers I told you…. we’d battle with them tooth and nail……. they are our comp in the east along with the rejuvinated bulls…… who now have no bench players of worth……… starters are not going to be in game ALL game…. so how are they better when our roster is overall DEEPER?

          • nylsjd

            because their overall talent is soooooo much better than ours. We may be deep, but we’re not deep with top tier talent. We have Melo as our top player and a significant drop off. It’s totally unrealistic to expect the Knicks to rip off win streaks like that again. They’re rare for non elite teams.

          • Gate-7-

            Ok whatever you dude. Call it unrealistic fi you’d like…… I never said anything about us pulling off winning streaks…. that was a point you pulled in for the main purpose of negating. All Im saying is that with a better team like we have now…. you dont NEEED huge win streaks to land top 5 spot in the east. Its a Marathon so the overall number of wins here and there can be just as effective as any LOOONNNG held streak.

            As long as we arent losing back-to backs on the regular …. which theoretically we shouldn’t we should have no problem.

            (Id also like to remind you that we went on that tear losing streak out west with Melo going through injury and not in the unit….. thats what plummeted our stock vastly last season……. we were having a relatively good season up till then)

  • nylsjd

    Guys, it’s not that I’m down on the Knicks chances but let’s be objective. The Heat are the Heat. The Bulls added Derrick friggin Rose (a potential Top 5 player in the league), The Pacers got deeper after exposing our rebounding weakness. Who knows about the Nets, but they’re certainly better on paper.

    • Gate-7-

      See my comment below

      • nylsjd

        You gotta be objective man. Paul George maturing another year, especially after coming on int he playoffs, is better than any player we added. Then they added Dunleavy who fits their offense perfectly. Copeland will help their game. West, a healthy Hibbert. That starting 5 is nice.

        • Gate-7-

          OUr starting five is enviable as well

          Felton/Beno – Shump – Melo – Barg – Chandler

          • nylsjd

            Rose > Felton
            Butler > Shump
            Deng Bargs
            Noah > Chandler

          • Knickels n Dimes

            I don’t know bout Butler over Shump. Shump is better offensively

          • Gate-7-

            ok who is there bench? because like we saw yesterday a bench can make or break a team………

            Plus I never made apoint about about the Bulls we never beat them last season anyway….. still did fine. Yeah theyre better and like I said our fight for the possible 2 spot will come down to them and the Pacers. Our team is easily a 3-4.

            There is no arguing that….

          • nylsjd

            Saw yesterday? Really? a preseason game is giong to determine a bench?

          • Gate-7-

            OMG bro are you knicks fan ?

            OF COURSE a preseason game isnt going to determine a lot… but we start buoilding a picture of where our team is going…… at the moment…. with the right rotations this team looks at a glance….. like it is put together right…… all Im saying………….

          • nylsjd

            How can you make that determination from one preseason game and training camp? You can’t at all. Did the Knicks get better? yes. But so did all of the other top teams in the east. One can be a Knicks fan and be objective. You don’t have to be balls deep in saying they’ll be a 2 seed when they clearly overachieved last year and don’t have the same talent level as Chicago/Miami/Indiana. We can’t rebound, we can get stagnant offensively, we can’t defend on the wings. There are still a lot of problems that weren’t addressed in the off season.

    • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

      Bulls bench this year is terrible though. Thibs is gonna run his starters til their legs fall off. I don’t think the Bulls will be the same. The pacers, that’s another story.

      • GottaKeepItReal

        Bulls have a solid bench

        • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

          wanna remind me who they have? I can’t think of it lol

          • GottaKeepItReal

            hmm Kirk, Dunleavy, Taj Gibson, Nazr mohammaed, snell

          • nylsjd

            Marquis Teague getting another year

          • nylsjd

            isn’t Dunleavy a pacer now?

          • GottaKeepItReal

            thas Scola and Watson

          • nylsjd

            ahh my bad… you’re right

          • GottaKeepItReal

            replaced Bellenilli

          • Knickels n Dimes

            no hes a bull

          • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

            Snell is a reach. No more Nate. Teague is weak. Nate was their bench. He killed us.

          • jtru001

            LBJ killer Heinrich is on there too right?

          • GottaKeepItReal

            listed him as Kirk

          • jtru001

            word lmao

          • nylsjd

            Teague is not weak… Snell is a reach the same way TH Jr. is a reach. He’s their top rookie and may have been the Knicks pick had he reached them.

          • Knickels n Dimes

            yea Teague is a scrub, snell gonna be good tho

    • Gate-7-

      whether or not we demolish the Nets will be STRICTLY a matter of coaching. We dont have the personnel they have but we sure as hell have an arguably better coach.

      Those games come down to Woody vs > Kidd in my opinion

    • Gray wolf

      How can you say they are better? I just don’t get it! BECAUSE OF GARNETT ,PIERCE TERRY, THEY ARE NOT BETTER THAN US BRO! CAN NOT WAIT TIL SEASON BEGINS

      • nylsjd

        Where did I say the Nets are better than us? I said they’re a better team than they were last year. Don’t forget about AK either.

        • Gray wolf

          You said better on PAPER THAS NOT EVEN TRUE!!!! but let’s wait and let the games show everything! I am just sick of hearing how every other is so much more improved then the KNICKS

          • nylsjd

            Better on paper than they were last yaer. What do you not get about that?

          • Knickels n Dimes

            calm down, he’s just a crazy old man

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    there’s a reason they play the game on the court fellas…anything could happen

  • Ericknicks

    How far to think we can make it

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      we’re at least a playoff team…at best i can see getting to the ECF and then all bets are off at that point. maybe further, maybe not

      • Ericknicks

        Yeah you right son

      • nylsjd

        Realistically we are the 4-5 seed in the east. With a great season we can push to the 3.

  • Ericknicks

    Chris smith just want to be on the 2k Knicks team lol

    • Knickels n Dimes

      He better not be in in 2k14, I will delete him from the game

      • Ericknicks

        Lmao

  • Ericknicks

    Chris smith be like look mommy I’m like jr now lol

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    Bulls bench doesn’t scare me like they did last year. That’s just me though, I could be wrong.

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    truth of the matter is we can’t control or worry about anything other than the 15 guys we put on the court each night. sure other teams got better, but i think we did too. our biggest concern is getting our team to gel together because i honestly believe that last year when we were on those two winning streaks and firing on all cylinders we were the most dangerous team in the league

    • nylsjd

      I’m just worried that our getting better wasn’t as good as other teams who were already ahead of us… I mean Bargs or Rose lol

      • Gate-7-

        My problem with everything you’re saying is that your argument comes across like you had HIGH expectations for this season from the jump. This is NOT our year. We KNEW that. so what are you worked up about us not getting “as good” as the front runners.

        Any win you scrape from them will be a blessing and cherry on the cake. Just be glad that we didnt slip into obscurity after last year and at least can remain competitive in some form. As Ive repeated MULTIPLE times….. we are a top five seed this year….. possibly 3-4 (anything greater will be the luck of the irish). Enjoy the ride bro…….

        theres a stark difference being openly objective and downright pessimistic

    • jtru001

      they gotta work on rebounding (as a team) and consistancy and we set. but you right

      • nylsjd

        Yes, we can’t rebound for shit

        • jtru001

          that seemed evident when they let sullinger beast on the boards lol and olynyk

  • nylsjd

    So in the last two years Derrick Rose has actually played, what team has finished with the best record in the eastern conference?

  • Knickels n Dimes

    and Rose supposedly added 3-5 inches to his vertical… that means even more posters…

    • Ericknicks

      Yeah sure lol

      • nylsjd

        Why is that not possible? Your ACL comes back stronger after you tear it.

        • Knickels n Dimes

          really? so ur sayin I should tear my ACL, and I will become a better athlete?

          • nylsjd

            All Day would advise. Why do you think pitchers opt for TJ before they need it? Oh I know, because it adds MPH to their fast ball. When you have an injury and you let it rest, it comes back stronger and w/o the wear and tear. It’s when you rush it that you have problems.

  • Ericknicks

    Deng Noah is scary lol

    • jtru001

      true i put him as a top 3 C in the game…D12, Marc Gasol, Noah

      • nylsjd

        i think he meant the combo of Deng and Noah

        • jtru001

          oh lol…that can be as well

      • Gate-7-

        I still think PAU is better than noah and Marc though……. he’s just been given the rough end of the stick these last 2 years in LA

        And as howard is UNPROVEN and has NO post game…… Id argue that Pau is a better CENTER than even him ….though I acknowledge that HOWARDS beast like athleticism gives him an advantage

  • Ericknicks

    We need to add toure Murray ik Felton nd beno gonna struggle wit quick point guards

    • Knickels n Dimes

      Its gonna be hard dressin Murray, Felt, Prig and Udrih. One of dem probably gonna sit out

    • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

      Prigs gone struggle too lmao

  • Ericknicks

    I don’t care bout rose rose is rose we know wat he bring

  • Ericknicks

    Toure Murray would come in when we face them crack head speed guards

    • nylsjd

      Yes. Leave it to the D-Leaguer to guard the best point guards in the NBA

      • Knickels n Dimes

        u never know… I say throw him to the wolves in preseason, see wat he does

        • nylsjd

          that’s definitely the time to test him

    • Ericknicks

      No idea lol

  • Ericknicks

    I say we get to the eastern finals by the skin of I teeth than from there we just ball out to get further

    • nylsjd

      Depends who we have to get through in the second round… I’d rather play Miami in round 2 than the Pacers or Bulls. We matchup well with the Heat

  • Knickels n Dimes

    man….. the people who make these articles are terrible..

        ?

  • Gate-7-

    You know what Im going to agree to diagree with you on this NY…. you obviously have your own viewpoint that I acknowledge but don’t stand eye to eye with. The only teams in the east that got better are the Bulls and the Pacers. Throw the nets in too if you enjoy self inflicted pain.

    It remains to be seen how the bulls will fair without a whole lot of help from the bench (added minutes for key guys), Rose easing back into the spotlight. Pacers got back a key guy but our offense is still FAR more potent than theirs IF as you said…. we learn to overcome the stagnant offense syndrome…. thats strictly a WOODSON issue. Defense is something you have to be committed to……. if the coach holds his players accountable more on both ends there is no reason we can’t be a better defensive team.

    Take away point from that series…… nobody from that Pacer team KILLEd us last year….. we shot ourselves in the foot 90% of the time…… and Chandler found himself uncharacteristically out of his water (despite having HANDLED Hibbert in reg season).

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      we got man handled by the pacers. thanks to JR and Chandler

    • Knickels n Dimes

      damn, I feel like I’m back at knicksblog

    • nylsjd

      Hibbert had a wrist injury almost the entire regular season. Amazing that the Pacers took off when he got healthy. Hill, Stephenson, George, West, Hibbert. Granger, Scola, Watson, Copeland, Mahinmi. That’s a deep team too.

      We were 11th in points scored per game last year and 7th in points given up on D. That means we were very lucky to get a 2 seed. I need to see A LOT more from this team before I put them anywhere close to a 2 or 3 seed.

  • Ericknicks

    Yo jets need to win Sunday

    No turn overs geno

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    The only thing that worries m about the game on Sunday is the DC for the Steelers. I wanna see how Geno responds.

    • nylsjd

      Steelers are trash. Jets win that game from their defense alone.

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    everybody here is gonna hate eachother before the season is over lmao

      lmao, ppl stopped showing up last year.

  • nylsjd

    Poet, I know you hvae a crush on me and all, but damn man every post doesn’t have to be about me

  • nylsjd

    Another concern i have with this team is that our defense was ranked as highly as it was because we slowed the tempo down a ton. We were the sixth worst team in the league in terms of points given up per shot

    Who may weather fighting next

    Anybody agree PAU is arguably the best Center Talent-wise in the NBA?

    • nylsjd

      Maybe the most versatile

      • Gate-7-

        yeah thats what I mean….. he has all the moves that you want in a Center… minus the insane athleticism of D12……. I dont think there are many centers that can poutplay him strictly on ability. For example Hibberts only advantage would be his size (rebounding)

        • nylsjd

          I wish we could’ve traded Tyson for Pau… his game would fit so nicely with Melo

          • Gate-7-

            Bro,,,, we finally agree on something. We’d have a real big man with ability. If oonly

          • nylsjd

            I agree with you on a lot of things. I’m just bitter about the Giants right now lmao

          • Gate-7-

            haha

          • nylsjd

            You actually know your hoops. It’s fun to have a friendly debate

    • Gray wolf

      His brother is not to shabby either!

      • Gate-7-

        His brother is nice…. but he is not Pau……

        He’s more of a dinosaur center….. just big…… he’s got some moves that alot of euroborn centers have but comes up short near pau

        • Gray wolf

          Would you trade his brother for TYSON?

          • nylsjd

            In a heartbeat. Whoever would’ve though that Memphis didn’t truly get shafted in that deal

          • Gate-7-

            MArc for Tyson….. thats not even a question lol

            Id prefer PAU who’s a little more likely given his age now…. but MArC is 10x better than Tyson at all ends.

            who needs a newly found midrange jumper when you have skills around the hoop

  • Gray wolf

    KNICKS WORLD THAT’S ALL I HAVE TO SAY!!!!!!! HHHHHHHHHOOOOOWWWWLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!

    • nylsjd

      We all want the Knicks to do extremely well. There’s no denying that. The biggest thing for them come playoff time (like every NBA team) is the team they’re matched up against. I personally think we matchup better with the Heat than the Pacers or Bulls. I’d prefer the 4 seed over the 2.

      • Gray wolf

        Bring on any team we will be READY!!!!!

  • theflyeststar

    if this was the 80′s the knicks would be the new kids on the block the nets are menudo

    • nylsjd

      Nets have one year to win it all… If they dont’ do it this year, that franchise is in major trouble for years to come

      • theflyeststar

        lol the nets are us last year, too many players on their last legs

    • jtru001

      if they dont win today…make a run for clowney or the 2nd pick lol..jags got 1st on lock

      • nylsjd

        i have an irrational nervousness that we’re gonna finish behind the Jags lol

        • jtru001

          i hope not…that would be terrible and straight embarrassing i think the steelers will do worse than we did

  • jtru001

    yo nyls no that i think about it…its a rough year for the 2003 class in the nfl…Big Ben, Eli, Rivers….etc none are doing good at all lol

    • nylsjd

      Rivers is playing well… has had some big games this year… Ben looks cooked. He has two rings, right? Eli just fell off a cliff for some reason.

      • jtru001

        yea both ben and eli are hurting…Rivers is ok but still mediocre overall just looks like a hof next to eli and ben they way they been playing

        • nylsjd

          sadly, Eli is gonna hvae to chuck it 50 times tonight

          • jtru001

            yep no RB whatsoever….they failed at assembling this team i hate to say it but they severely neglected the RB and LB positions

          • nylsjd

            yup… neglected LB corps for years now

          • jtru001

            true…lavar arrington was the last real LB we had….antonio pierce too.

          • nylsjd

            yea, i think Pierce before his nose dive. Aarington had such promise. Loved taht signing, sad he could never stay healthy

          • jtru001

            he was an absolute MONSTER at Pennst

          • nylsjd

            remember him jumping over lineman… he and courtney brown were both beasts… both played under Sandusky

          • jtru001

            yup smh…had to bring him up lol

        • Knickels n Dimes

          well at least rivers team has a win…

    Hardaway Sr. wasn’t allowed by Miami brass to be interviewed by MSG
    Network, but a source said assistant general manager Allan Houston told
    him before the game his son was having a terrific training camp. There’s
    a logjam at shooting guard, but the 24th pick of the draft is going to
    make it tough for coach Mike Woodson.

    • Knickels n Dimes

      what’s up

    • Knickels n Dimes

      ….. …….
      ……………..

  • BxNY4LIFE

    J.R. Smith
    has a starting job that is his to win, which is pretty remarkable since
    Smith — the reigning Sixth Man of the Year — is coming off knee surgery
    in July and hasn’t been cleared to practice.

  • BxNY4LIFE

    Woodson appears to be leaning toward starting Smith, which isn’t
    surprising since the head coach has shown that he prefers to Smith over
    Shumpert in the past. When asked why he would take Smith out of the role
    that resulted in him having his best season, Woodson said: “I think
    he’s past that. I wanted him to be past that sixth man.

  • NYC IS THE BEST

    I hope Shumpert wins the starting spot. He’s a better overall player than JR Bricks

  • BxNY4LIFE

    “Let somebody else get the sixth man if he deserves to get that starting
    job. Last year was last year. He’s capable of defending. That’s the
    only question I have — are you going to start the game with the mind-set
    of defending, too? I know you can score, if you win that starting job. I
    know Iman can defend. He’s still searching for his offense.”

  • BxNY4LIFE

    Woodson says that he “sold” Smith on becoming a top reserve last season
    and revealed that in Smith’s exit meeting in May he told him “if you
    come back this year with the attitude that you could possibly win a
    starting job why not grant him that opportunity.”

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    this shyeet be laaginn.. im off this for a while

    pce.

  • BxNY4LIFE

    IDK what going on in Woodsons mind…but let’s see if he going to stick with JR (if he’s bad) even if there’s better alternatives

    He did that sheet during the playoffs last season..he stood by with that dumb look on his face and watched JR go bar hopping and shoot us out of the playoffs
    Let’s see if he does it this year…Shumpert so far has shown us what he’s capable of, and it looks damn good to me

  • BxNY4LIFE

    That exit meeting came on the heels of Smith accepting responsibility
    for his disappointing showing in the playoffs. He was suspended for Game
    4 against Boston for elbowing the Celtics’ Jason Terry. During the
    Pacers series, he was linked to singer Rihanna, who took to social media
    to blame Smith’s struggles on the veteran guard going out every night.
    In September, the NBA suspended Smith for failing a drug test, and he
    later admitted to reporters that he delayed having knee surgery until
    after he signed a new contract. Smith’s play and behavior the last six
    months haven’t been exemplary, but Woodson is open to rewarding Smith
    with a starting job.

  • BxNY4LIFE

    I guess you need to infiltrate the grassroots so you can get material to write your ESPN articles…lmao
    I guess the Miami Heatles fans also need to infiltrate our Knicks blog to stir up trouble, acting like they’re something special when in fact they’re a grande piece of caca…lmao
