Now, while I’m all for Swizz Beats (I am. He’s great. I’m not mad ’cause he, ’cause he’s hood rich), I feel like there are too many other suitable songs for this team to be introduced to. When The Garden’s PA guy is elongating ‘Melo’s name (Caaarmeeelooo Aaanthonayyy) or screaming STAT’s (Amar’e STOUDEMIRE), I don’t really want to hear an original production in the background.
Game-day. This is my favorite wallpaper that I’ve made so far, so I hope you all enjoy it! Click on it to download the full-sized version.
If you’re a Knicks fan — a real Knicks fan — you don’t have many possible choices as to what your favorite team-related moment from the past ten years could be, and, in fact, one of them isn’t even directly related to the ‘Bockers.
As training camp begins and the season is right around the corner, many of the weathered Knicks fans have begun to come out of the woodwork. As a fan myself, I have no doubt let my feelings show to the world (or for all my Facebook friends), in order to keep my sanity during the dark ages of this organization’s fandom.
Basketball is finally around the corner. Today, training camps are set to open, meaning we’ll start to see some real basketball news. In preparation for the season ahead, we here at The Knicks Wall are going to give you our takes on the off-season that was and the season that is going to be.
Last night, Tyson Chandler hosted a gallery show with where he showed off his 15 photographs that will be sold to benefit UNICEF. A lot of people showed up to support Chandler, so there were some fun photos taken. Take a look:
Despite their numerous options, their multitude of weapons, the Knicks were a below average offensive team in 2011-12. Although they played at the fifth fastest pace in the league (nearly 96 possessions per game), they were 19th in offensive efficiency, averaging 101.4 points per 100 possessions. Needless to say, this isn’t what the Knicks’ front office imagined when they paired Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony together.
Tonight, in a blowout win against Nigeria, Carmelo Anthony set two olympic records. First, he set the single-game scoring record for United States basketball, with 37 points, and he also set the single-game three-point record with 10 threes. Previously, Stephon Marbury held both of these records, with 31 points and 6 threes.
Double Scribble has been doing some tremendous work. I put their Olympic illustration of Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler together into a wallpaper for your computer and/or iPhone!

Understandably lost in the Jeremy Lin buzz last week was the fact that the Knicks quietly let Landry Fields walk to the Toronto Raptors. Though it didn’t cause nearly as much controversy as the Lin decision (Lindecision!) – the Knicks weren’t expected to match Fields’s three-year/$18-million offer sheet – it was yet another example of the Knicks failing to retain young, home-grown talent.
Great work, @Pavvy8.
It’s official. The Knicks did not match Jeremy Lin’s offer-sheet, letting him to be signed to the Houston Rockets for $25.1 million over three-years.
Letting Lin leave for the Rockets could be a colossal mistake, or it could be financially savvy move that has little bearing on the team’s ultimate success. Nobody really knows, which only adds more confusion and heat to the debate. Lin could be the player that showed All-Star potential last February, he could be an above-average to average point guard like he showed in March, or he could end up a below average player.
