Amare’s Moment

“The Knicks are Back” When Amare made that bold proclamation in June 2010, Knicks fans welcomed his optimism, but doubted the validity of his statement. “That’s cute,” some said, “and we hope it works out, we really do. Let’s not kid ourselves here – it probably wont. But hey, as long as you dont screw […]


Keep Calm and Move On

Before the playoffs began, some of us at The Knicks Wall participated in a round table discussion about the keys to a deep Knicks playoff run. Despite the obvious importance of health and the reliability of Melo, I couldn’t help but identify “composure,” as the vital factor for success. Looking back on the season, each […]


In Which I Grant You Permission to Enjoy It

“They may reach the promise land, but, for now, as the Knicks slump towards Portland, it seems they have lost their way and the wheels have fallen off the wagon.” I wrote my last post huddled by the limited candlelight that barely illuminates “Knicks Fan Hell”. You know, that place you crawl into when the […]


Knicks On The Oregon Trail

Over the past decade, Knicks fans have grown to expect the worst when the Knicks head West. There is no feeling more sickening than casually watching the end of a Knicks win on MSG, slowly talking yourself back into the team, and then that upcoming schedule graphic appears from the depths of hell…5 games out […]

Like everyone else in New York, I was eager to scribe the ultimate Nemo tweet/ Facebook […]

Following the announcement of the All-Star reserves last week, Knicks fans reacted in one of two ways (if not both) – 1. Good for Tyson, it’s about time he got in… what an absolute joke that he is not a starter. 2. “How in the hell is JR Smith not on this list”. When news […]


It’s Fun To Hate Again

It was sometime between “Honey Nut Cheerios” and an overzealous box out when my roommate turned to me and said, “I really forgot how much I HATE the Celtics”. When Pierce drilled that dagger of a jumper, as he so often does, obnoxiously kissing the Garden crowd with that disgusting smirk of his, my roommate […]


The Garden Has Beautiful Flowers

“I love this team”. When I utter this phrase today, as I often do, I am not referring to my general love for the New York Knicks (the franchise). Instead, I am referring to the particular collection of players who make up this current Knicks team. JR, Cope, Novakaine, Shump, Prigs, Raybaby, Big Tys, Melo, […]
