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 […]


Pablo Prigioni’s Postseason Emergence

The New York Knicks’ second half explosion in Game 2 this past Tuesday – a massive 30-2 run that lasted from the end of the third quarter through the majority of the fourth quarter – will be credited and mostly remembered by Carmelo Anthony’s transformation into a scintillating fireball. Anthony, who’d been struggling shooting, suddenly […]


Game Two Recap: Knicks 105, Pacers 79

Boy how quickly things can turn in the playoffs. It took an overall combined effort for about three quarters for the Knicks to cap off the Pacers, until the floodgates opened in the fourth quarter for New York. This was a true game of runs, ending with a 36-4 run by the Knicks to end […]


Miami Losing Is Good For The NBA

You could say I have roots to a bunch of NBA teams. When growing up, my father was (still is) a Lakers fan from the Magic Johnson days. So, naturally, father like son, I became a Lakers fan. Quickly, Shaq became my favorite player in the entire league. No one could match him. I remember […]


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 […]


Round Two Preview: A Rivalry Renewed

Man, things are really starting to heat up… With the Celtics now in the rearview mirror, it’s safe to say, that was more excitement and anxiety than I was expecting out of the Knicks’ first round matchup with Boston. But the green demons that haunt all Knick fans have finally been ousted and placed on the […]


Game 5 Recap: Knicks 86, Celtics 92

Fears of a seemingly inevitable implosion are fair at this point. Losing one game, on the road, to a veteran team facing elimination – well, that’s OK. Losing a second game in a row, on your homecourt – scary. Doing so after self-imposed blustering of what-if sweeps and opponent funerals. Unbearable. Yes, despite the Knicks’ […]


The Novak/Stoudemire Dilemma

Thanks in part to the frequently injured status of Amare Stoudemire, Mike Woodson has been forced to be very creative in his approach to lineup building this season. Using the talent pool available to him, he’s completely twisted the traditional point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward, center lineup into something uniquely special and […]


J.R. Smith Has Been Suspended For Game Four

Tonight, the NBA has announced that J.R. Smith has been suspended for game four of the Knicks v. Celtics first round series. The play the NBA suspended J.R. Smith for can be seen below. I disagree with the NBA’s decision, but, with the series currently sitting at 3-0, one could see this coming from a […]
