The Knicks Wall was founded in January 2012. Since then, the site has grown into the largest independent Knicks site on the web. The Knicks Wall’s main goal is to provide Knicks fans with up-to-date news stories, as well as unique opinion pieces. The writing team is as follows:
- Jonah Kaner (@TheKnicksWall): Hey, all, I’m Jonah. I run things here at The Knicks Wall — I also founded the site. I’m a life long Knicks fan and lover of all New York sports. Besides the Knicks, I root for the Mets, Giants and Rangers. Outside of this, I do some web design and digital marketing. You can also find some of my writing on the Knicks’ site, KnicksNow.com, and my graphics under the wallpaper page.
- Danny Guerrero (@DannyG_NYC): Danny is an Emmy nominated video editor at MLB Productions, where he has worked since 2004. Also an aspiring sports writer, Danny spends his free time blogging about the Knicks, whom he has cheered on since 1992.
- Bryan Gibberman (@Gibberman10): I grew up in New York, but moved to Arizona for college and decided 65 degrees in December was better than shoveling snow. Between the ages of 18 and 22 while my friends were getting drunk and hitting on girls I would go to bars that had the NBA package and watch miserable Knicks teams that made me want to claw my eyes. Suffice to say, I am now happy the Knicks are good and I can afford the NBA package.
- Richard “Treats” Dryden (@iamdjtreats): Being born and raised in Brooklyn, I still walk with New York pride. I was born into a Knicks family of all Jamaicans. They rooted for Clyde Frazier and Bernard King, dominant players back in their day. Then I became the next generation of Knicks fans when Patrick Ewing—a fellow Jamaican—was drafted to the Knicks. I didn’t know what allegiance to a team meant until I sided with NYK. In my family, you rooted for the Knicks, period. I became a disciple of NYK watching their most climactic seasons of the ’90s even without winning a chip. We ride for them whether they’re up or down. They’ve always been champions in my heart.
I currently write for my personal blog, DJTreats.com. My contribution to The Knicks Wall—as honored as I am to be here—is providing news on Knicks related sneaker releases (Melo, Ewing, and more).
- David Vertsberger (@_Verts): Hello, The Knicks Wall readers, my name is David Vertsberger and I am honored to now be a part of this terrific TKW staff. I look forward to writing here on our beloved New York Knicks, and being called “Rook” by the veterans of the site for the time being. I’ve been religiously watching the Knicks and covering NBA basketball for the past half-decade, so I’d like to think I know a thing or two. I hope you enjoy reading my various endeavors into the Knicks throughout the year, and I’d like to thank TKW once again for giving me the opportunity to write for them.
- Billy Mansmann (@Tankroidica32): Billy is a huge sports fan and aspiring statistician who shows passion and diligence towards everything he does. He’s always seeking to learn more and improve upon himself and others.
- Matthew Clark (@JMatthewClark): Matt’s fields of expertise range from the NBA to MMA…but if you ask, he’ll give you his opinion about anything! Matt loves his wife and daughter, comic books, pro wrestling, and the New York Knicks.
- Scott Davis (@WScottDavis): Scott has an irrational love for role players, second-fiddle players, and scrubs. The stress of watching the Knicks has already taken years off his life and risen his blood pressure to senior-citizen type levels.
- David Anesh (@DaveAnesh): Hello to all The Knicks Wall readers! My name is David and I couldn’t be more excited to begin contributing to The Knicks Wall. I grew up hearing about the days of Clyde and DeBusschere and have been hooked ever since. My favorite Knick moment of all time is Allan Houston’s running jumper against the Heat in the 1999 playoffs, and my favorite player growing up was Hubert Davis (obviously I play shooting guard). Thank you for allowing me to share my views and opinions about the greatest franchise in the NBA: The New York Knicks.
- Sean Aquino (@reactdrummer34): I am a lifelong New York Knicks fan and a Los Angeles, California native. I spent my formative years battling bandwagon Bulls fans and lukewarm Laker fans, steadfast in my love for the Knicks. Through the on the court battles of the 90′s and the front office battles of the 00′s, I remained a devoted fan of the Knickerbockers. I believe that one day, I will get to watch the Knicks ticker tape championship parade down the Canyon of Heroes on Broadway. I am very proud to be a part of a fan base that through the tough times remains the most passionate, knowledgeable, and above all, committed fans in the NBA. Go NEW YORK, Go NEW YORK, GO!
- Matthew Bove (@RAYROBERT9): Hello, everybody, my name is Matt Bove and I am very excited to be a new writer here at The Knicks Wall. I am currently a journalism major at William Paterson University in New Jersey, so I hope to be a sports writer someday. I also write for other blogs called Yankees Fans Unite and Green Bay Packer Addicts. I have been a huge Knicks fan my whole life and I have stuck with them through all the awful years during my childhood. So, I am really excited to share my thoughts on the Knicks with you all this season.
- Tony Arnoldine (@tonyarnoldine): It’s my pleasure to join the team here at The Knicks Wall! I’ve been writing about sports on the internet for over ten years. My blog, tonyblogs.net, has been up and running since 2008 and has received mentions and praise from Newsday’s Bob Glauber, SNY and WFAN’s Marc Malusis, ESPN, Esquire and more.
- Matthew Shanley (@MattShanley): I’m an aspiring sports writer whose adoration for the Knicks came after years of hearing my dad tell tales of “Dollar” Bill Bradley and Willis Reed’s limp through the tunnel at MSG. I’ll defend ‘Melo more than ‘Melo defends anybody.
- Josh Kaminer (@JKaminer3): My name is Josh Kaminer and I am currently a junior at the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania. I became an avid Knick fan at age 7 and have been expressing my opinions to anyone who will listen to them since. I managed the sports section of my high school newspaper and am happy to finally be getting back in the game. In addition to writing about basketball, I also love playing and can usually be found camping out in the corner and shooting 3′s at a slightly below average rate.
- Jared Dubro (@jaydubs10): Jared is a born and bred die hard Knicks fan. Though he may lack the age to remember some of the classic Knicks teams, he’s got a flair for the new look Knicks and looks forward to offering up his expertise for the upcoming season and beyond.
- Steve Meza (@ecualibrium): *throws up random air-fives* WHAT’S UP, FELLOW KNICKS FANS? WHO IS READY FOR SOME HOOPS? *smashes beer can on forehead**digresses*Seemingly steroid-induced rage aside, I’d like to introduce myself by saying I love you all for being Knicks fans and love you even more for feasting your beautiful eyeballs to The Knicks Wall. I’m honored to have been chosen to contribute and anticipate collaborating with the many talented writers here for the upcoming season. I’m a full-time software engineer that loves to gobble up any Knick-y things for lunch, sometimes at the neglect of the engineering schematics on my desk (don’t tell my boss – it’ll be our little secret). My love for the Knicks and passion for writing have brought me here and I hope, at the very least, to not make THAT big of a fool of myself with my contributions. I look forward to this season, as well as connecting with a wider base of Knicks fans. #LetsGoKnicks!*Discount Triple Checks*
- Ciaran Gowan (@CiaranGowan): Hey Knick Nation! I’m a teenager from all the way in London, but what I lack in age and proximity doesn’t stop me from being a huge Knicks fan. Right now, I’m working towards eventually landing a career in sports writing, and you can read some more of my stuff on Bleacher Report, where I’m a Featured Columnist for the Knicks. Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy hearing what I have to say as we work towards finally winning another championship.
- Darwin Kastle (@DarwinKastle): Darwin has been a Knicks’ fan since Rick Pitino and Mark Jackson joined the team in 1987. He previously wrote a sports blog called Take Five, which focused primarily on the NBA and the New York Yankees. He currently writes on various topics, but the Knicks are his great love. Just don’t tell his dog Molly!
