Amare Stoudemire has started the season taking a plethora of long-jumpers, rather then closer, higher-percentage shots, and even though he has gotten off to a slow start, statistically, I think he will have another fantastic season.
The Knicks did something on Sunday they couldn’t do on eight separate occasions last season: beat the Boston Celtics. But, despite the win, there are some things the team needs to clean up, in order to contend for a championship this season.
The New York Knicks gave all of their fans a nice Christmas present by defeating the Boston Celtics in thrilling fashion, 106-104, as Carmelo Anthony led the way.
During a matinee game against their rivals from the north, the Knicks started out strong, ending the first quarter with a 34-23 lead. Renaldo Balkman, and rookies Josh Harrelson and Iman Shumpert, came off the bench and gave valuable minutes, while the starters were resting. New York was able to successfully limit the impact of Rajon Rondo in the first quarter, who is one of the top three point-guards in basketball, especially when he is making his jumpers.
Let’s get it on!
I have a ton of graphics dropping in the coming week… Stay tuned!
With the signing of Baron Davis, for one-year and $1.4 million (the veteran-minimum), who will reportedly be sidelined for less than one month and not the 8-10 weeks that was originally reported, the Knicks front office is proving that they are doing all they possibly can to win a championship this season.

UPDATE: I updated the wallpaper, so it should now fit the screen perfectly, and be a little crisper.
Well, it wasn’t quite a “nuclear winter”, but we got pretty close. To be fair, the CBA has not officially been signed, but we currently have a tentative agreement between both parties that is expected to be passed.
With the lockout finally on the heels of being lifted, Knick fans can finally look forward to the trades and signings that are part of a typical NBA offseason. Fans are already targeting certain guys and are going to work on ESPN’s trade machine in hopes of upgrading the roster.
It’s been a while since we’ve had some basketball, let alone some positive news. So, without further adieu, here is a little image I made for you Knicks fans!
Amongst many topics that have risen to the forefront during the lockout is that of the perceived competitive advantage that large market has over small markets. If you follow me on Twitter, @AzazNYK, you probably saw my rant disparaging this on Monday. It befuddles me that making the game balanced has become a major hang-up in the CBA negotiations, when if the issue is examined closer, it is evident that smart management trumps everything in the NBA.
After a disappointing loss to the Orlando Magic, the New York Knicks will get right back at it Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.
The Knicks will host the New Orleans Hornets in what will be the Hornets’ one and only visit to the garden this year.
