The 17th pick in the 2011 draft, Iman Shumpert was Donnie Walsh’s last “gift” to Knicks fans. The mix of cheers, boos, and “what the…who?!” permeated MSG the night Shump was drafted in the 1st round of a fairly deep draft. It didn’t take long, however, for the Garden to chant his name and for […]
Yesterday at practice, Carmelo Anthony informed reporters that, “if he’s healthy, his preference is to stay at small forward.” Now, small forward is his natural position, so it is definitely a more comfortable spot for him, but if you take even a momentary glance at the statistics, it’s obvious that he’s much more effective at […]
From Ronnie Brewer’s player capsule on Gothic Ginobili: I’d entreat you to ask Dwyane Wade how that turned out in the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals. Rather astounding set of statistics, here — with Brewer on Wade, the Dwyane Wade who proceeded to run wild in the finals averaged a paltry 15 points a contest on […]
Ronnie Brewer followed in his father’s footsteps by playing shooting guard at the University of Arkansas, before getting drafted to the NBA. Brewer had high expectations when he was drafted with a lottery pick by the Utah Jazz in the 2006 NBA Draft. Through his first three seasons, Brewer looked like a solid NBA starter, […]

James “Flight” White is known for his superb athleticism, but, unfortunately, he’s had a difficult time sticking in the league. The Knicks gave White a one-year, guaranteed deal at the start of the summer, and White elected to play with the youngins’ in Vegas, to work on his game. Seeing that he was the one […]
The 6’11 big man out of UMass came in to the league with a lot of fanfare. A storied college career capped by a run to the Final Four and a Wooden Award, before leaving after his junior season, led a lot of people to believe that Camby was destined for NBA greatness…and for the […]
It would be safe to say that last year was Amare Stoudemire’s worst year in his career. Coming into the shortened season, Stoudemire’s Knicks had high expectations, but the 6-time All-Star had no shortage of issues. Stoudemire saw the tragic death of his brother, the resignation of his long-time head coach, a bulging disk in […]
