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 […]


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 […]


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, […]


Why World Peace Makes Sense Now

I’ve seen quite an array of reactions in the past 24 hours on the Knicks’ decision to sign Queens native, and St. John’s alum, Metta World Peace (formerly Ron Artest) to a two-year deal made official yesterday out in the desert of Las Vegas. Some fans have been clamoring, since June of 1999, for World […]


Measuring the importance of Iman Shumpert

The New York Knicks head into this offseason with a conundrum on their hands. They need help on both ends of the floor. Now, who’s to say that help is not already within grasp for them? Yes, Amar’e Stoudemires $100mm pay day ties Glen Grunwald’s hands behind his back financially and gives the Knicks very little […]


Looking Ahead

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 […]


Shumping the Playoffs

Much has been made of the downward spiral of JR Smith in these playoffs. Fortunately for the Knicks, there has been a corresponding upward trend by Iman Shumpert. As the saying goes, “When one door closes, another door gets dunked on by Iman Shumpert.” Let’s start with Smith. Much like the Knicks themselves, JR started […]


Game Two Recap: Knicks 105, Pacers 79

Boy how quickly things can turn in the playoffs. It took an overall combined effort for about three quarters for the Knicks to cap off the Pacers, until the floodgates opened in the fourth quarter for New York. This was a true game of runs, ending with a 36-4 run by the Knicks to end […]


Round Two Preview: A Rivalry Renewed

Man, things are really starting to heat up… With the Celtics now in the rearview mirror, it’s safe to say, that was more excitement and anxiety than I was expecting out of the Knicks’ first round matchup with Boston. But the green demons that haunt all Knick fans have finally been ousted and placed on the […]
