Anytime a team exceeds expectations, it’s natural to point to two things: a great coaching effort and good personnel changes. While the Knicks are in a bit of a tailspin at the moment, one of the things that make it such a big deal is that up to this point the Knicks have greatly exceeded… More
First Quarter: The Knicks and Raptors were tied at 31 at the end of the first quarter. The Knicks came out with a lot more energy and even played a lot in transition, which is rare for them. Raymond Felton seemed to push the ball up the floor quickly after misses. Unfortunately, there weren’t enough… More
The Knicks’ slow starts are no longer a trend, but a trait. Since beginning the season in near-dominant fashion, running out to an 18-5 record, the Knicks are just 14-14. Though many of their problems have stemmed from injuries and having to work new players in and out of the rotation, the Knicks have been… More
This morning in Toronto, Carmelo Anthony and Mike Woodson spoke to reporters about the recent addition of 35-year-old, Kenyon Martin. Both of them had positive things to say about Martin, who hasn’t played in the NBA this year. Woodson has yet to chat with Martin at any substance, but will “sit down with him tomorrow… More

The New York Knicks have signed Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports. This comes on the heels of a last minute trade, sending Ronnie Brewer to the Oklahoma City Thunder, in exchange for the Thunder’s 2014 second round pick.

Ronnie Brewer has been traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for a future second round pick. The value in this trade for the Knicks come from an open roster spot, which they could now use to sign Jermaine O’Neal, should the Suns come to terms on a buyout with him.
