The Morning After: Tim Hardaway Jr.

After the Knicks drafted Iman Shumpert, I went on a Matt Moore/Mike Conley-esque rant about how angry I was they picked Shumpert over Chris Singleton. Basically, I made a complete ass of myself. I’ve learned since then that being definitive about things regarding the NBA Draft is dumb and ridiculous. The people who get paid […]


Measuring the importance of Iman Shumpert

The New York Knicks head into this offseason with a conundrum on their hands. They need help on both ends of the floor. Now, who’s to say that help is not already within grasp for them? Yes, Amar’e Stoudemires $100mm pay day ties Glen Grunwald’s hands behind his back financially and gives the Knicks very little […]


Who Should We Root For: Miami Heat or Indiana Pacers?

The Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers are making the New York Knicks look bad, and it’s not fair or fun. The Knicks have been on summer vacation for about two weeks now and I’m still a bit petulant about the whole thing. The Knicks were supposed to reach the Conference Finals, sweep the Heat and […]


Off-Season Primer: Financials

Well, the New York Knicks are out of the playoffs. As much as that sucks, it’s time to focus on the upcoming season… already. As you know, the Knicks have several high-salary players and adding to this roster during the off-season is often a daunting task. With that said, Mr. Grunwald has done a fantastic job adding minimum salary […]


Time To Part Ways With Stoudemire, At Any Cost

The New York Knicks almost have an identity. It is there. We all know it works, but, at certain times, head coach Mike Woodson, and even the players, don’t fully accept it. Play Carmelo Anthony at the four, surround him with two knock down catch-and-shoot three point shooters and a penetrating point guard who can […]


Stability vs. Indecisiveness

The Indians Pacers stick to what works, while the New York Knicks are experimenting on the fly.  It’s the middle of March and Head Coach Mike Woodson wants to see what is going to work come playoff time. Wait a second, no, that doesn’t work; it’s actually Game Four of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Think […]


The Light May Be Dim, But It’s Still Lit

As soon as I begin to converse with you, the fans of New York, news comes across that the Knicks’ orthopedist is flying in from New York City to examine the swelling on Iman Shumpert’s surgically-repaired left knee that flared up three days ago. I really do not know what to assume of this. My optimism […]


Recap: Game 3 – Knicks 71, Pacers 82

An anemic offensive performance by the New York Knicks, coupled with a supreme defensive effort by the Indiana Pacers gave Indiana a controlling 2-1 series lead with a Game 4 still to be played on their home court. For most of the game, the Knicks and Pacers dangled in a middle ground, the score close […]
