Mike Woodson’s Knicks Coaching Career Ends After Two Plus Seasons

On Monday, Knicks President Phil Jackson, as expected, relieved head coach Mike Woodson of his duties after two plus seasons with the third best winning percentage in franchise history (.580). Woodson’s departure from the organization was inevitable from the moment Jackson was hired, but seeing the entire coaching staff dismissed was still a little jarring. The […]


March Madness in a Season of Mayhem

The NCAA Basketball Tournament is considered by many to be second only to the Super Bowl when it comes to sporting events that captivate the country. A small percentage of those that enjoy March Madness every year are Knicks fans. In this particular season, Knicks fans must have all sorts of weird feelings as they […]


The Phil and Jim Show

The Knicks formally introduced Phil Jackson as team president this week, and both Jax and his new boss, James Dolan, have been on a press tour that makes Miley Cyrus look shy and introverted by comparison. But what have we really learned about the Knicks and their short-to-medium term future? Jamie O’Grady, Jonah Kaner and […]

Trade Anthony? That’s up to Melo.

The idea that the Knicks “should explore” trades involving Carmelo Anthony is, of course, nonsense. There’s only one person who can decide whether or not ‘Melo will be dealt.

Super-Teams and the New York Knicks’ Future

In an interview with NBA TV recently, Carmelo Anthony called LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh “smart” for teaming up together in Miami.
