GAME RECAP – Bulls 82, Knicks 81

I don’t know about you, but last night’s “playoff” game really drained me. And we are only two games through the 82-game slate! If the Knicks are going to play with our emotions like this all year — and we all know that they will do just that — we had all better pick up… More

After the Knicks were eliminated by the Pacers in the second round of the playoffs, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth about the bleak future faced by this team. To be fair, there are plenty of reasons for concern. The team is old, the oldest in the league. The team was beset by… More

Shumping the Playoffs

The Wish List

Well, they’ve done it. The Knicks have clinched a playoff spot. Now I can finally stop holding my breath, I can shave my “they’re-not-in-the-playoffs-yet” beard and I can dump my girlfriend. That last one might not have much to do with the Knicks, but I like to share. Speaking of sharing, now that the boys… More

The Missing Link

When you look at the Knicks’ stats as a team compared to the rest of the NBA, something stands out like a sore thumb: assists, or more accurately, lack of them. Of the 30 teams in the NBA, the Knicks are 29th, with 19.4 assists per game. Only the pathetic Bobcats make fewer assists per… More
