    enough with the damn articles it’s too much lol

    • BxNY4LIFE

      Agreed…and they’re not saying sheet….

  • Long.Live.A$AP

    We can beat the bulls the way we played in the first half but not like the second half

  • jtru001

    yeooooo…..

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      TRU

      • jtru001

        what up man….what you think bout the game …saw some ish i liked and some ish that worries the fxck out of me.

        • Knicks_11ThePoet

          werd man. it was freakin weird as fxck. ninjas in here were to hype. i knew bucks were goin to come back and knicks would let their guard down. i think we just got lucky last night. melo did some stuff late at game tho..

          • jtru001

            Melo had an OK game ….TC beasted granted it was the bucks but i like his energy…was it me or did they really struggle w/ Felt out of the game?

          • Knicks_11ThePoet

            with felton we struggled too. if we trade for a PG. we gonna be top 3 team in the league

          • jtru001

            we def was way better w/ felt in tho

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    yooo

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      how many does it take for a trade to be officially finalized?. i still have

      ray ray on my roster!

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        not until next monday when the rosters update

      • jtru001

        next week same w/ waivers lol

    • jtru001

      yoooo

  • godsent224

    Jtrue did you check out that site and watch the game last night?

    • jtru001

      yea i went to firstrowsports.eu i couldnt remember the site but did watch and has me worried b wont lie

      • godsent224

        Im not worried. You think we gonna turn it over 22 times a game?

        • jtru001

          nah…but we did struggle hard when ever Felt was on the bench…

          • godsent224

            Not true. Felton didnt play the whole first half.Where was the struggle there?

          • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

            pablo held it down, he just needs to stop passing up so many shots….beno and bargs were ugly last night

  • jtru001

    yo DJ def did not expect 5blocks from TC lol

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    herbs still not giving credit where credit is due…jt you shoulda seen the hate for tyson last night even though he had a great game

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      he had an OK game. not great.

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        he was the reason we won if you don’t remember correctly….steal, block, 6 points on consecutive posessions when the game was on the line?

        • jtru001

          werd him n melo sealed it for us

    • jtru001

      he beasted but i wont get too high on him tho it was the bucks lol

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    dudes overreact to one game too much

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      yea like

      u

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        you just said we should trade felton because the offense looked bad without him….i’m saying tc had a good game

        • Knicks_11ThePoet

          what. i said we need a better PG than Felton. because it is kinda sad we cant function without felton.

          if we have an elite PG. we can be monstrous,

          • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

            that doesn’t make any sense. revise your comments before posting them

          • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

            we should get a better pg than felton, because we can’t function without him? that’s completely disjointed you herb

          • Knicks_11ThePoet

            felton not gonna save this team, if this team cant function without felton. thats just sad. felton not even top 20 PG

          • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

            lmao ok you’re not making any sense…it’s like arguing with a woman

    • jtru001

      yup

    • godsent224

      To many fake fans in here thats why

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        YUP….herbs who don’t know the game just read the box score

        • jtru001

          lmao…

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    The New York Knicks agreed with Carmelo Anthony about not discussing the forward’s contract situation during the season.

    “Carmelo and I, the first day of training camp, we both agreed we wouldn’t have any more conversations about his ability to opt out or us negotiating an extension,’’ Steve Mills said. “I’ll stick to what I had agreed to and not talk about his contract status.’’

  • jtru001

    brb

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    “This is New York. It’s the Garden. And it’s the show,” center Tyson Chandler said. “Once he gets past all of that he’ll be fine. All of his teammates love him and we think he’s going to be the key. He’s going to be huge for us.”

    smh

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      shaking your head because they support their teammate?

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        he couldnt hit wide open jumpers.

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    yo DJ why u act like Felton

    is dwayne wade to this team? he just a role player.

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      show me where i said that? don’t make ish up just because you’re a fool

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        u said this team cannot function without Felton

        • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

          nah herb you said that…want me to copy and paste?

    • godsent224

      Felton played great last night and your first thought of today is to trade him? SMH

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        i didnt say trade him. damn u all got it all wrong.

        • godsent224

          Thats what your implying. Dont you think if it was thqat easy to get a better pg we would? Or a better C, SF, SG, etc

        lmaooo

    • jtru001

      Felt aint a role player man he runs the team…Prigs is a role player, Bargs is a role player, THjr is a role player Felt at this point is one of the main dudes on this team…did you see how bad they struggle w/ him on the bench?

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      lmaoooo eat your words fool

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        i mean that Felton is a glorified role

        player

        • jtru001

          he is the guy who runs the offense…from both TC and Melo “he is our floor General” lmao

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    i told ya’ll poet has been hanging around the night shift too much…he’s up there in king herb status now

    • godsent224

      I was there last night, had to leave.To much stupidity and people saying shit for shock factor

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        exactly

    • jtru001

      lmao…felt aint no role player tho w/ out him we sink…its a fact

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    u all dudes are way too hype.

    Ridnour, Knight and even sanders (2nd half) didnt even play

    if all of them were healthy. the result would of been different. it just sad

    u guys are blinded by this win.

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      nah bro bro you just don’t know ish

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        tell me how i didnt spit facts

        • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

          LMAO show me what “facts” you used…i’ll wait

    • jtru001

      aint no one blinded man…we know what the deal is…

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        lool.. nun against u bruh

    • godsent224

      We prob would of won by 50 if they did. Whats your point?

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        are u serious? u see how we played against them in pre-season when they were

        all healthy??

        • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

          preseason, regular season, and postseason….3 completely different seasons, they’re not comparable one bit

          • Knicks_11ThePoet

            agreed, but u cant say that those guys arent talented enough to

            beat us.

          • jtru001

            they not

        • godsent224

          You’re slow. you comparing the first half to the second half then bringing up pre-season. And Knight didnt even play against us in the pre season

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    yo poet quit now and cut your losses…don’t get embarrassed any more

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      im gonna stop because there aint no way i can make this much easier

      to understand to u guys

      lool

  • jtru001

    yo poet the fact that the bucks got back in the game last night had more to do w/ us slacking/resting dudes than it did the talent on the bucks lol…look at the 3rd quarter mins lol..mostly back ups the whole time w/ 1 or 2 starters

  • godsent224

    I think our defense played great last night though. Its gonna be way harder stopping Rose though tonight, but Felton and Prigs were great on defense last night.

    • jtru001

      yea…bargs and metta gonna have to step up…

      • godsent224

        I actually dont see Bargs playing that much tonight. I think Amare will play a lot more than what Kmart did last night

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    bargs and udrih tho, that was ugly last night…they gotta tighten it up

    • jtru001

      add metta to that too..

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        ah i thought metta did alright, just not much of an impact

        • jtru001

          seemed like he was just there.

          • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

            yeah true that’s what i mean…looks like he didn’t get charged with any fouls in the box score i know he had at least 1 offensive…

          • godsent224

            They called it a travel

          • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

            the one where he was backing his man down in the lane?

          • godsent224

            yeah

          • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

            ah word…good call, i thought they slapped him with a foul

      • godsent224

        How was Metta bad? He went 2-4 played good defense

        • jtru001

          never said he did bad just needs to step up and be more of an impact

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    YAOOO

    • jtru001

      yoooo

  • jtru001

    just to get something off my chest…What i tell you guys bout MCW???? he will turn out to be the best PG of the last draft…..what a game

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      lmaooo definitely did not expect a game like that

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        1 steal and 3 rebs from quadruple

        double

      • jtru001

        dude is a beast watched a lot of him.

    • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

      Syracuse!

      • jtru001

        werd….the hometown lol

        • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

          damnnnnn lol

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    THJr producing in his limited time

    • jtru001

      ye saw some nice shots….bargs tho smh wtf…

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        he’ll come around…he made some nice moves last night too though so you gotta hope it’s just a matter of knocking the shtos down when he takes em

        • jtru001

          ye had dude up like 4ft in the air on a pump fake at the top of the key i was dying

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    i just hate MCW’s retarded face

    • jtru001

      he is an ugly mfer but he can ball lmao…when he finally gets his shot down he will be a dangerous PG.

  • jtru001

    TC played good def did not expect 5 blocks but homeboy needs to quit w/ the J’s and move closer to rim and catch the ball lmaooo…Felt and melo lead him on nice dimes and went thru his hands.

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      he helped lose our lead. and kinda helped

      gain it back

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        how did he help lose the lead?

        • jtru001

          lmao cuz he barely played in the 3rd

      • jtru001

        not just him…i blame it on the back ups/ prigs

        • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

          bingo….we blew the lead with tyson on the bench…notice how he came back in and we got back to playing d? he’s the defensive anchor, don’t get it twisted herbs (not you JT)

          • godsent224

            Makes you wonder wtf people are watching. smh

    • godsent224

      What?

      • jtru001

        i saw a few plays man….where nice passes just went right thru his hands….and saw some ugly ass shots….aint mad at him tho…just needs to clean it up a bit….def had a good game tho

        • godsent224

          He only took 2 jumpers and was 1-2 on those. He’s better off taking those wide open jumpers than trying to catch the ball in the post in traffic.

          • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

            the first jumper was a little shaky then the second one he just line drived into the rim lmao….but if he can hit every now and then from 15 feet he just gets more dangerous

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    Bargs will get his shot back…. hopefully

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    Other than what JTru said, TC had 6rebs in 31min, that concerns me.

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      won’t always have big numbers though, so much of basketball doesn’t show up in the box score…i’m not too concerned

    • jtru001

      ye man i think melo

      • jtru001

        led the team in rebs

  • danny55885588

    Ya all bum @$$ are hype over win vs bucks …..lmao

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      your team lost, you have no room to talk

    • jtru001

      lmaooo the Cavs tho????

      • danny55885588

        What ? They look better than knicks …. knicks were about blow a big lead on home opener vs buck ….. lmao

        • jtru001

          ye w/ our 2nd and 3rd team in the 3rd quarter lol….

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    Nets were getting bogus a$$ calls all game and still lost. Yall looked exhausted in the final minutes lol

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    Nice to finally get some fast break points lol. Yall saw Alan Hahn’s tweet? lol

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      nah what was it?

      • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

        #Knicks last season averaged 8.5 Fast Break ppg, lowest in NBA. Tonight: 24 Fast Break Points (22 in first half).

        • jtru001

          them steals tho…..love that ish….

        • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

          gotta credit a lot of that to shump and pablo playing that tough on-ball D….pablo gets hated on but dude is great at doing that

          • godsent224

            Felton was part of that too surprisingly.

          • jtru001

            TC as well

          • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

            yeah true…felton is deceptively quick, can get his hands movign and jump the passing lanes well

          • jtru001

            gonna steal yo cookies lmao

  • jtru001

    def liked how melo didnt force ish tho…played w/ in the game passed out of doubles etc…hope he keeps ish up he even set up ray n others w/ nice shots

  • jtru001

    yo danny they said Dwill is hurt already ankle issues lmaooo…Nets= overrated bums …lmao

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    http://www.msg.com/videos/index.html?vid=2415425129

    Sounds of the game if yall interested lol

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    pablo is a pest…it’s not always pretty to watch and doesn’t show up in the stat sheet but you love guys like that

    • jtru001

      i hate that he gives up wide open looks tho….

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        yeah man me too, he needs to take those shots because he can knock them down

        • jtru001

          yup he can be a real good shooter he just never shoots lol

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    melo said that he just didnt want to score the ball as much..

    he just wanted to see what guys can give him on a nightly basis.

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    Can’t over play pablo though lol

    • jtru001

      ye beno needs to step up too…

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      i like pablo in the starting lineup though, it helps set the tone defensively

      • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

        I don’t he’ll be starting today though

        • jtru001

          prolly not he too small to play SG tonight imo

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    Bargs starting today? lol

    • jtru001

      nah prolly metta at the 3 shump at 2 i would think

  • nylsjd

    jtru, your boy MCW looked awesome

    • GottaKeepItReal

      ye that stat line was absurd…prolly used up all his energy for this game

    • jtru001

      yea man

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    yo NBA put the box score of cats-rockets game at the end

    of the video. Fire that Editing guy now NBA!

  • godsent224

    Nobody realized that this bum Danny just popped up as soon as someone mentioned the Nets. Lmao ninja just sitting here watching us, What a creap

    • jtru001

      creepin..he pullin a drock lol

    • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

      LMAOOO

    • nylsjd

      surprised he showed up… kid is so soft

  • GottaKeepItReal

    Dope first full day for NBA

    • jtru001

      yes sir….what i tell you bout MCW???

      • nylsjd

        one game though… let’s see where his season ends up

        • jtru001

          i watch a lot of cuse man…dude can def play…his shot is suspect tho i dont think he keeps that up all year tho

          • nylsjd

            i mean he almost had a quad double and had 9 steals… ain’t doing that again lol

          • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

            he’s 6’6 at pg, its possible lol. Not 9, but he’ll get his fair share

          • jtru001

            he did in cuse he nice at playing the lanes…9 steals is a lot but i can see 3 per

          • nylsjd

            The leader last year was 2.5

      • GottaKeepItReal

        ye I was surprised by that, but if he consistently does that w.o gettn injured/hittn rookie wall too soon, you got me. But I didnt see that at all in preseason or summer league

        • nylsjd

          Exactly

  • Gate-7-

    Son in our first game of the season…. Boberto got shown up by every player with the exception of Bargs…… not bad if you ask me

    • nylsjd

      rule 1: boberto is never right

      • jtru001

        yoooo

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      lmao he was in true herb fashion last night…even BX was educating him

    • jtru001

      lmaooo…i read ish from last nite he was like TC is still a bum till he does it in the playoffs even if he avgs 20/20 per night

    • godsent224

      He’s the #1 clown.

      • Gate-7-

        Biggest clown to EVER exist. Funny thing is…. I actually believe Bargs right now… is still psyching himself out….. once he gets some confidence he’ll be contributing….. a big man that can ball (we’ve seen it) he just need confidence.

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    Kevin Durant had 42 points, 9/24 from the field, 22-24 from the free throw line lol smh

    • nylsjd

      yea, he’s an animal… prob kicking himself over the missed FT’s. Hope he goes for 50/40/90 again

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    knickstape and poet were herbing out too…they all have a crush on herberto or something

    • GottaKeepItReal

      I was tryna imagine watching a game w herberto and seein his reactions to TC lol….TC was full of energy yesterday

    • jtru001

      damn what was tape doin?

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        hating on TC too….herberto brainwashed all the children on the board

        • jtru001

          im not high on TC to be honest…and it was just the bucks but if he plays w/ that kind of energy im good…i just want consistancy…6rbs scares me tho

          • Gate-7-

            exactly….. he’s definitely one of those roller coaster players….. as long as he dont get a cold before playoffs…. I got nothin against him

  • GottaKeepItReal

    Pablo was great yesterday, his energy is awesome….hes gonna continue to be one of those guys thas most effective against non playoff teams

  • godsent224

    I think Amare plays a lot tonight. Well 20 minutes a lot

    • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

      Lol, we gonna need some low post scoring

  • Gate-7-

    When this dude Bob(erto) come in… please… every one…. refer to him as Herberto…. all day. No exception. just for kicks. Mr.Obvious will do too

    In other news….. Pablo made me happy I was wearing my Prigs jersey yesterday lmao…

    • jtru001

      lmao i always call him bumberto…yo im mad my metta jersey didnt come in

      • Gate-7-

        Iwas thinkin bout coppin that tooo

  • Gate-7-

    Serious question right now fellaz….. are yall honestly worried about these Bulls?

    In a few months and closer to playoffs… theyll be straight i think… but right now…… I have no fear….. what you guys think?

    • jtru001

      im the same…right now not really tho i still think they are dangerous…but spring? could be a diff story

    • nylsjd

      Yes, let’s discount the bulls because they lost to the Heat on opening night

      • jtru001

        nah not discount but they def off right now and look rusty as do a lot of teams…

        • nylsjd

          it was the first game against a very good opponent

          • jtru001

            i got you…we will see tonight im not discrediting them just noticing they a little off right now…but who knows tonite they at home diff energy for them

      • Gate-7-

        Not what I was saying but ok. I don’t discount the Bulls. They will be in Beast mode very shortly in my opinion but right now……they arent at the peak.

        Could we lose still….sure… its the ddamn bulls…. but they arent playing ball that you need to be afraid of right now is all im saying.

        • nylsjd

          how can you possibly make that determination after 1 game on the road against the heat?

          • Gate-7-

            I believe in the same way you can stand firm on your idea that they will be better after that one away game.

            Neither of us have much to go on besides preseason and the heat game… so in truth has about 50% chance of going either way.

          • nylsjd

            I don’t give any credit to anything preseason related. You can’t say that a team isn’t playing well right now when they lost to the 2x defending champions on opening night. That’s just crazy. I’m also not standing firm on anything, I’m just not making a ridiculous statement.

    • GottaKeepItReal

      a lil worried, tho Noah not bein 100% gonna hurt him. They still a great team defensivly, and after watchn us turn it over as much against the bucks at home….i dunno, back to back as well

    • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

      It can get ugly for both teams, we have the better bench, get their starters in foul trouble.

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    I’ll be wearing my Knicks hoodie around campus today. I know a lot cats out here will be pissed b/c St. Louis lost the world series lol. F Boston

    • jtru001

      damn boston…smh

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    the only player im not hating on . is Pablo.

    if he plays like last night for every game. i dont mind him being on the

    starting lineup

    • GottaKeepItReal

      im confident his value will be most effective against non playoff teams…love the energy he brings tho

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        yea. true

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    I can’t wait til JR gets back lol

  • godsent224

    Durant was 9-24 last night. Shot 24 ft’s smh. This is him without Westbrook in reality taking about 36 shots

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      24 Fts??

      really?

      • godsent224

        yup

    • GottaKeepItReal

      ye I saw the box score 9-24…was like 42 pts, then 24 fts like damn

  • jtru001

    i think the way to beat the bulls is go right at jimmy n deng get them in foul trouble…then they D becomes suspect they would be forced to play snell lmao

    • Gate-7-

      Deng will have a harder time with Metta on the floor I think. He wont be on Melo much makes for interesting matchups.

      Unless we run the two guard lineup again

    • nylsjd

      Thib’s defense never becomes suspect… Snell’s strongest point right now is probably his defense

      • jtru001

        he got abused by mia tho i would imagin melo doin the same to him

        • nylsjd

          he only played 7 minutes

          • jtru001

            and got abused in them mins LBJ soned him at leas twice

          • nylsjd

            but LBJ does that to everyone

          • jtru001

            exactly and my point is that melo can do the same ….snell not better d than deng or butler so my point being of getting them into foul trouble is a good strategy to beat them…since it takes out their two best defenders

          • nylsjd

            Snell will eventually be a mirror image of Butler… Butler wasn’t great when he first came into the league either… I would’ve loved Snell on the Knicks

  • GottaKeepItReal

    see Boogie Cousins, KLove, and D12 tho

    • jtru001

      d12 had almost 30 boards lmao

    • nylsjd

      Love was a monster

      • GottaKeepItReal

        another game tying 3 to force ot…happy hes back healthy

        • nylsjd

          lol give it two weeks… love the guy, but he’s NEVER healthy

          • GottaKeepItReal

            ye unfortunately

          • GottaKeepItReal

            oh and see our boy G Monroe as well

          • nylsjd

            guy was awesome… lotta big games last night for individual players

          • Gate-7-

            true

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    change the name from FT line

    TO KD line.

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    DMC is the best center in the game, imo lol

    • nylsjd

      Not better than D12

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        yup

      • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

        F D12 lol

    • jtru001

      nah still d12 he close tho shaq def put in work w/ him

    • GottaKeepItReal

      les have this discussion atleast 10 games in

      • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

        He’s just my fave center in the nba lol

        • GottaKeepItReal

          lol werd

        • nylsjd

          that’s also a really bad Denver team too

          • Knicks_11ThePoet

            true

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    u all see Anthony davis

    slam against pacers??

    • GottaKeepItReal

      another big that killed that, so many solid 4s out there

      • jtru001

        not so much for 5′s tho…

        • GottaKeepItReal

          true, tho TC, D12 werent that bad

          • GottaKeepItReal

            and some others prolly did ite, spencer hawes too lol

    • nylsjd

      He’s gonna assert himself this year as a Top 20 player

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        true

    • jtru001

      dude had a monster game

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    Starting Dwight and Asik, no boards for the other team lol

  • godsent224

    Why is Faried coming off the bench in Denver?

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      pulled hammy

      • godsent224

        oh ok

      • jtru001

        seems to be a lot of hammy issues already

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    what was kelly olynyk

    stats last night?

    • godsent224

      2-5 4 points

      • godsent224

        16 minutes

    • GottaKeepItReal

      they need a true pg for him to be effective at all

      • jtru001

        who is running point for them?

        • Knicks_11ThePoet

          prob

          bradley

          • jtru001

            lmao…

    • nylsjd

      he sucks

      • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

        LMAO

  • GottaKeepItReal

    Bulls is the type of team we got Bargs for to bring Noah/Boozer outta the paint, he better not shoot 30% tn….but tn seems like a Melo type night

  • Gate-7-

    I like this dude nyls… cautiously optimistic but respectfully fearful at the same time lol.

    Can’t wait for end of the day.

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      wut ?

      lol

    • nylsjd

      I don’t judge anything in a basketball season until at least a quarter of the way through the year… especially not 1 game sample sizes… everyone here knows i’m a huge advanced stats guy

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    vitor faverani a steal for the

    celtics

    • largehrdsports

      The Knicks never get steals.

      • Knicks_11ThePoet

        EVER

      • GottaKeepItReal

        got mad steals last night

        • largehrdsports

          Against the Bucks and they lost their PG in first minute of the game thoo

          • Knicks_11ThePoet

            YES! spit them

            facts

        • theflyeststar

          the defense was impeccable in the first half, metta, tyson, shump, prigs, got us going

      • godsent224

        Tyler will be a steal if we get him back

        • jtru001

          i think so too

        • nylsjd

          I don’t ever see Tyler as a starter in the NBA

          • godsent224

            I dont want him to start

          • nylsjd

            I just wouldn’t ever call him a steal though… Tyler, to me, isn’t a guy who ever gets minutes on a true contender

  • theflyeststar

    feels so good to wake up to a new season, turn up lol

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      Where da Bitxches at ni99aa.?

      - mike epps

          • jtru001

          • theflyeststar

            haha i smoked some good shit i could barely get out of bed

        • godsent224

          If the game started any later or went into overtime I would of never made it in to work.

          • theflyeststar

            rofl

  • nylsjd

    Is no one else even remotely concerned that we blew a 25 point lead to one of the 5 worst teams in the NBA?

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      NO BUt chandler was a beast against nate wolters

      - herbs in here

      • nylsjd

        lol i’m with you

      • GottaKeepItReal

        I like that dudes confidence/game, very high iq

        • Knicks_11ThePoet

          got mad confidnece. filled in for ridnour

          nicely

    • GottaKeepItReal

      yes, thought it started w Felton gettn injured tho, we were cookn till then, and Udrih/Pablo at 1 was not effective, Beno played really poorly. But the damn turnovers

    • theflyeststar

      bargs, beno and tim hardaway jr lack of defense blew that lead when they subbed in

      • nylsjd

        yea, but i mean 25 is 25 lol

        • theflyeststar

          word, i think woody has to be careful when subbing out our best defenders

          • jtru001

            they was tryna coast and rest dudes for morrow lol

          • theflyeststar

            lol word that too, plus it was an easy win they might have got bored

          • nylsjd

            you coast in the 4th quarter, not at the start of the second half though

    • largehrdsports

      You ain’t a real Knicks fans. Stop being sensible and enjoy the win of the Buck aka the Leftovers

      • largehrdsports

        *over

      • GottaKeepItReal

        ….

      • nylsjd

        well…. this was ignorant

    • jtru001

      i feel you but look who was on the floor most the third…looks to me like they tried to coast before they was like fxck we gotta hustle now lmao

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    its sad that we blew the lead and three of their

    top players didnt even play.

  • nylsjd

    Could you imagine this being your starting lineup… Lawson, Foye, Hickson, Anthony Randolph, JaVale McGee… yikes

    • godsent224

      word, That team looks so much different from last year. I feel sorry for Shaw

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      that front court is disastrous.

    • godsent224

      I been saying if Mcgee was on this team ppl would hate him more than Tyson.

    • jtru001

      wont be as bad when Faried is healthy tho

  • theflyeststar

    defense is everything for this team if guys like bargs , beno, and other non defenders don’t step up they shouldn’t get burn, prigs, kmart, metta, shump, etc deserve the bulk of the minutes

    • GottaKeepItReal

      and if they cant play D, atleast make plays on offense to make up for it (amare style)

      • theflyeststar

        word, i hope amare can get healthy this year

        • GottaKeepItReal

          I think we may see him tn, kinda hyped bout that

          • theflyeststar

            me too, he’s the wild card if he can just stay healthy were as good as anyone

  • jtru001

    refres: yo fly if this is plus size then i guess im just into biggins lmao

    • godsent224

      Me too then. lol

      • jtru001

        she a plus size model man smh

        • godsent224

          • jtru001

            lmao apperantly the world thinks she is…i hate that ish…love girls w/ some meat lol

          • godsent224

          • godsent224

            You have spanish thats why, lol

    • nylsjd

      gonna need to to have any chance

    • jtru001

      that ish is scary i dont get it either cuz we basically have same core and didnt have hardly any last year like 8per i believe

      • godsent224

        11

    • godsent224

      Its not like they were picking our pockets lie we did them. The turnovers we had can be fixed easily

      • GottaKeepItReal

        yeah agreed im optimistic bout it. Prolly were too jittery bein openin night

  • largehrdsports

    Our squad loves the big games. They always show up for nationally televised games. I ain’t worried about them looking bad. it’s gonna be tight.

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      its goonna be a fun

      ride

    • theflyeststar

      so true, its going to be epic tonight

    • GottaKeepItReal

      gonna be a Melo type of night…im sure he saw Kds 42

    • nylsjd

      i don’t think we know anything from this squad yet

      • godsent224

        We basically have the same squad though.

        • nylsjd

          different year

    • Gate-7-

      As long as they dont play the Lebron commercial during every time-out….Im looking forward to the game

  • Hollis2Hollywood

    I’ve arrived. Greatness may now ensue

    • GottaKeepItReal

      hit us w your first thoughts

      • Hollis2Hollywood

        We ain’t shit.

          Sorry, I wish I could be more poetic lol

          • GottaKeepItReal

            na accurate and concise…turnover city

        • jtru001

          lmao

        • nylsjd

          i’m with you in the sense that there is absolutely no reason to get hyped after last night’s game

          • jtru001

            im hyped its NYK ball and we got a W….but thats it and im still feelin all the beer lmao

          • nylsjd

            it was just 1 game against a really bad team who was also missing players lol

          • Gate-7-

            None at all actually. Blew a 24 point game against a depleted….so-so bucks team. More cause for worry…. but Im optimistic

          • nylsjd

            Allowed to be. I’m just hoping we don’t get run out of the gym tonight

          • Gate-7-

            doubt it…. if we lose… its a close game.

          • nylsjd

            i hope so… chicago is the top team in the east imo

          • GottaKeepItReal

            if Felton doest play tn,I dunt think well do well

          • Gate-7-

            Dont write Beno off bro… he’s shown some decent glimmers….. just needs to get in form

      • jtru001

        werd….good luck let us know when you get it done whats it gonna be on

        • Hollis2Hollywood

          We’re mulling over a few things but one is probably going to be about the fans in international soccer. Another is probably going to be underground hip-hop related.

          • Gate-7-

            Should totally do something on World cup dude….. so much material….. especially with all the unrest in Brazil about it happening there…… two sided coin…… would be awesome

          • jtru001

            nice man….should be dope

        • Hollis2Hollywood

          We’re also thinking about doing one on NYC HS basketball tournaments.

          • nylsjd

            what about them?

  • Gate-7-

    Damn son… took us Game 1 to get live on here? May it never be dead from now till our 16th win. ……lol…… im clownin

    • jtru001

      • Gate-7-

        I may have needed to be more specific….. 16wins=chip

        • nylsjd

          i thought that equaled the sixers win total for this year

          • Gate-7-

            haha ok so i definitely needed to be more specific…..

        • jtru001

          lmaooo in the Playoffs i was like why just 16 wins thats in like a few weeks lol

  • theflyeststar

  • nylsjd

    Sixers gonna have to send MCW to the D-League soon… If he plays like last night, he ain’t fitting in with their tanking philosophy

    • GottaKeepItReal

      lol

  • Long.Live.A$AP

    We can beat the bulls we just need to play like the first half

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      AYY

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

      • theflyeststar

        lol i got you playa her name is Bernice Burgos

  • nylsjd

    Who we putting on D-Rose tonight? Shumpert?

    • Knicks_11ThePoet

      felton

      • nylsjd

        if he’s at all injured, that’s disaster

      • jtru001

        nah felt would prolly be on Jimmy

        • GottaKeepItReal

          ye I like Felton on Jimmy, Jimmy aint as quick, I think Felton will do fine on him

        • nylsjd

          Jimmy’s offensive game is still developing too

          • jtru001

            it is but felt would have a better game guarding him than Drose…

          • nylsjd

            yea i’m agreeing with you

          • jtru001

            oh lol im not thinking right…still feelin all the beer from last night

    • jtru001

      thats who i would imagine playing him….

  • Gate-7-

    • jtru001

      lmaooo…i said the name of the biddie i posted right? tara lynn

      • Gate-7-

        You posted a biddie?

        • jtru001

          yea lol…google tara lynn ppl making a big deal cuz she a “plus size” model made the cover of Elle or some ish …if that girl is plus size tho guess im into biggins then lol…i hate them rail thin girls man…

    • theflyeststar

      rofl i got you fam, im bout to drop a nice slew of biddies names included

      • jtru001

        lmaooo

  • Gate-7-

    As stupid as Boberto is at times…. I agree with the idea that a line-up of

    Shump/JR-(a 2guard)/MWP/Melo/Tyson (I added that cause you know boberto got a hate hate relationship)

    would be pretty decent against teams with explosive Guards…… at least in theory

    • nylsjd

      Shumpert can’t play PG though

        I wouldnt need him to do anything crazy…. I just need the ball to come up court.

        If you think about it…. he can drive (proven) and can hit midrange and 3 ball……. for key games/matchups….. the lineup would be effective in spurts i think….. Especially when you add his ability to stay on ball handler

        • nylsjd

          I wouldn’t trust Shumpert playing PG for more than one or two possessions per game. He’s shown himself to be pretty awful at it at the NBA level

          • jtru001

            would rather melo play point fwd than shump at PG imo

          • GottaKeepItReal

            You need a PG that penetrate the lane, break down the defense and utilize the PnR properly…Felton also can finish around the rim. Dunno how, w any bball iq, you would want anyone else at pg on this roster

          • jtru001

            word…

          • Gate-7-

            Because… with my “basketball IQ” Ive seen far better guys run PnR. Yes felton can penetrate… but my point was… so can Shump. Im not knocking Felton. My point on shumpert was for ONE specific scenario …… games against VERY good PGs , for spurts. Shump offensive game at the 1 would be less than Felton sure… but we’d gain a lot from his defense…..

            and with JR (hypothetically) and melo…. we make up for scoring.

          • GottaKeepItReal

            neither Shump or JR can penetrate effectively

          • Gate-7-

            Jr proved he can penetrate quite well actually last season….. where were you?

          • GottaKeepItReal

            I was watching him throw up bricks and shoot 25% in the playoffs w.o gettn to the rim at all

          • Gate-7-

            Yes in the playoffs after Boston he bricked.

            But your point was he cant penetrate…… which was exactly what he did to win Sixth man of the year…. choose and argument and stick to it bro

          • GottaKeepItReal

            what argument of course he can obviously penetrate, but does he do it effectively…No. And “which was exactly what he did to win Sixth man of the year” is inaccurate as you good be., he didnt win bc he could penetrate, he won bc he was rouced to be our 2nd option/ got the green light to jack up shots/3s

          • GottaKeepItReal

            and JR cant finish when the offball helps there, thas why he always settles for step back jumpers

    • GottaKeepItReal

      no way, how can you hate on Felton…and we need scoring in our 2nd unit, save JR for then. Jr also can barely pass/run PnR for a 2g, Shump as well…it would be dumb to agreee w someone that thinks of his lineup w 2k14 in mind

      • jtru001

        lol if that was the case Melo would start at PG lol w/ felt at PF

      • Gate-7-

        I never said fuck felton bro…….I saidd…. for key games…. where Felton has personally been beat by more EXPLOSIVE Guards…. shump at the 1…… intermittently wouldnt be a bad thing.

        • jtru001

          all you would really need tho is have shump start at 2 and switch to the PG on D…

          • Gate-7-

            then you have the dowside of the PG switching to the 2 spot….. against a biggger guy likely…. same negative scenario

          • jtru001

            as long as you have…shump on drose it would be fine…

          • Gate-7-

            I guess…. I suppose what Im getting at is… I wish we had a better starting 1.
            lol

            Felton would be my go to 2nd unit guard.

            A guy like Vasilis Spanoulis (Look him up if you like) is the kind of PG I want….. all round player…. leagues above Felton

          • jtru001

            i feel you we all want that but Felt is more than serviceable as a PG…and will do for now.

          • nylsjd

            Felton actually plays better D against 2 guards.. look at last year

        • GottaKeepItReal

          wherd I say “fuck felton bro” ?

          • GottaKeepItReal

            that aside, this lineup would be the ultimate iso lineup

      • Gate-7-

        Its about holding everyone on this team accountable… and if JR doesnt have the ability to play a proper 2 (which he is) , then he shouldnt be on the floor in general.

    C’mon Jeremy Lin was able to keep up with Drose–Asia went crazy when Lin blocked Rose’s shot–Felton can it done. We need at leat 12 pts and 6 dimes from Ray tonight. Make Rose do some work on D

    • jtru001

      problem is Felt struggles w/ quicker guards…shump will check him and felt get on jimmy we will be fine.

      • GottaKeepItReal

        ye we gonna need TC to protect the rim tn od

  • Knicks_11ThePoet

    Felton
    JR

    Melo
    Chandler

    Nets slept on the Cavs….Lol

    • nylsjd

      I’m not sure about that. I think the Cavs are likely a playoff team. The Nets will be either a 4 or 5 seed in the east. They’re going to need some time to learn how to play together though.

      • jtru001

        fxck the nets…i hope they crash and burn this year and completely implode that is my hopes lol

    • jtru001

      nets are overated bums man said that 3 months ago and will say that in june as well

    A source tells Marc Berman of the New York Post hears from a source who says too much was made out of a report earlier today that said owner James Dolan expects theKnicks to win the title this season. Dolan was merely attempting to express his confidence in the team’s players, the source tells Berman.

    Knicks GM Steve Mills isn’t looking to hire any more people to work under him in the team’s front office, but he does intend to restructure some of the roles of his existing staff, as Berman passes along in the same piece.
