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.
Tonight, at 9PM EST, the Men’s Olympic Team will take on the Dominican Republic in an exhibition match. This will be the first time we see Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony – two of the Knicks’ big three – put on their countries colors in a mission for a gold medal in London.
The first day of true free agency since 2010 did not disappoint. A number of players have already come to verbal agreements with their current clubs (Gerald Wallace with the Nets and Andre Miller with the Nuggets), while others have received offers from new clubs (Rockets offer Omer Asik three year deal worth $25 million and Trailblazers offer Roy Hibbert four year deal worth $58 million). Meanwhile here in New York City, it was all about point guards.
This year’s NBA Playoffs have featured some ridiculous individual performances, the latest one being Rajon Rondo’s monster 44 points, 10 assist and eight rebounds performance last night. While it has been more than three weeks since the Knicks were eliminated by the Miami Heat, one of our own had one of those great performances: Carmelo Anthony’s 41 point explosion in Game 4. Here is a highlight mix I put together from that game. Hope you all enjoy. Happy Belated Birthday Melo!!!
The season that began with a Lockout ended with the Knicks falling to some lock-down defense from the Miami Heat.
The rollar-coaster season the Knicks have endured finally came to an end tonight in a 106-94 loss to the Heat in Game 5 of their first round playoff series. Carmelo Anthony led New York with 35 points and eight rebounds. The Heat were led by LeBron James’ near triple-double of 29 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.
The Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire tandem has not worked well, thus far. As a duo, they have underachieved ever since they were brought together to restore the troubled Knickerbockers to the top of the NBA’s totem pole.
It’s about damn time.
After more than 11 years since their last playoff game victory, the Knicks salvaged their season at least for another game, avoiding a sweep at the hands of the Miami Heat with an 89-87 win today at Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 41 points and six rebounds while the Heat were led by LeBron James’ 27 points.
Tonight, the New York Knicks lost to the Miami Heat by 17, 87-70. For three quarters, the Knicks kept up with the Heat, but in the fourth quarter, Lebron James went super-human and Mario Chalmers stepped up to hit a few big threes, and eventually sunk the Knicks by 17.
I’ve been promising them for a while, so here you go. If you want any other players, be sure to comment below the post or tweet me (@TheKnicksWall)!

Well, at least they didn’t lose by 30…
The Knicks showed more life than they did on Saturday, but it still wasn’t enough. The Miami Heat defeated the Knicks Monday night, 104-94, to take a 2-0 lead in their Eastern Conference First Round series. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 30 points and nine rebounds. Dwayne Wade – who ran laps around Landry Fields – took over the leading role for the Heat, scoring 25 points while LeBron James just missed a triple double (19 points, nine assists, seven rebounds).
Already going into the game with news that defensive stalwart Tyson Chandler might not be at 100% due to the flu, the Knicks were completely massacred by the Miami Heat in Game 1 of their Easter Conference Round 1 series, 100-67. LeFlop James led the Heat with 32 points and four steals. New York was “led” by J.R. Smith’s 17 points off the bench.
