STFU!

Back in March or April of my junior year of high school, our English teacher got very sick and was replaced by a substitute. The sub was everything my teacher was not — young, energetic, maybe even a little attractive. She’d start class by telling us which song from the drive to work was stuck… More

GAME RECAP: Knicks 121, Magic 83

Don’t commit turnovers. Inside-out ball movement. Shoot threes. Make threes. Playing under .500 ball clubs helps greatly, but this was the formula that led last year’s 50 win team to success on most nights, and despite Woodson’s best attempts to handicap himself, it’s clear that the denizens of Madison Square would prefer to have that old… More

Recap: New York Knicks 113, Brooklyn Nets 83

It wasn’t long ago that fans and observers were excitedly talking up the potential of a New York Knicks-Brooklyn Nets rivalry. During the summer, both teams had built, or at least maintained, what appeared to be talented, deep rosters, who jibber-jabbered back and forth about one another. They exchanged barbs about who would “run” the… More

GAME RECAP: Clippers 93, Knicks 80

Pass the pie. I dunno man, this was a tough loss to swallow. For all intents and purposes, the Clippers really didn’t play well. For a team that was averaging 107.9 points per game coming into last night, they were far from an offensive juggernaut. New York shot poorly, struggled to find a rhythm for most… More

STAT, ‘Melo, Please! You’re both right!

With the 3-10 Knicks preparing for battle in Los Angeles against the wayward member their doomed “big three,” the fingers are pointier as the ship be sinkier. Specifically, after New York’s horrid  102-91 loss to the Trailblazers on Wednesday night in Portland — the club’s sixth straight defeat — Amar’e Stoudemire criticized his comrades for… More

GAME RECAP: Trailblazers 102, Knicks 91

The New York Knicks have lost games to the Wizards, Pistons and Bobcats this month, so you can forgive me if I wasn’t optimistic about their prospects against the 13-2 Trailblazers in Portland last night. Portland, of course, is exactly the kind of team that gives the Knicks fits; they’ve got a speedy, scoring point guard in Damian Lillard,… More

GAME RECAP: Pacers 103, Knicks 96

To quote the great Babu Bhatt, you are a bad man, Paul George. A bad, bad man. The Knicks (3-8) lost a heart-breaker to the Pacers (10-1) last night, 103-96, and it’s fair to ask if things can possibly get any worse. Going in, this game had serious potential to be something close to a human… More

The Knicks Wall Roundtable

Now that we’re 10 games into the New York Knicks’ 2013-’14 campaign, it seems like a good time to take stock of where the team stands. Fortunately, we’ve got some of our staff’s best and brightest on the case, so without further ado, welcome to this season’s first installment of The Knicks Wall Roundtable: 1.   … More

For Knicks, Spacing Out Is a Good Thing

Last season, New York’s third-ranked NBA offense was fueled by small lineups, great floor spacing and record-setting three-point shooting. Through the first few games of this season — in some cases due to necessity, if not by design — the formula had changed. Canadian import Andrea Bargnani was inserted into the starting lineup and Carmelo Anthony was… More
