As a follow up to the outstanding column that colleague Bryan Gibberman put up earlier today about the Knicks rotation, I would like to display the following charts regarding the Knicks’ minute breakdown per player at each position. The first two are hypothetical situations and the last chart displays what occurred in the Warriors game… More
Nothing like some good, old intense basketball. Also, as Bryan has pointed out on twitter, it’s refreshing to see this happen and then see the Knicks continue to play basketball, rather than get flustered.
Last weekend, at NBA All-Star weekend in Houston, Jordan Brand previewed two new colorways of the Carmelo Anthony M9. The first pair, dubbed the Royal Suede’s, features a blue upper and toe box, with orange accents. These are considered an update to the suede M8′s Melo wore last year against the Chicago Bulls.
My favorite time of the year is upon us. The week after the All-Star Break signals the beginning of a period I like to call ‘Basketball Heaven’. While the NCAA is coming into its home stretch, with teams battling to make it to the field of 68, the NBA is resuming the regular, everyday routine… More
It’s hard to argue against the statement that Carmelo Anthony is having the best season of his career. He’s leading the NBA in scoring per game at 29 points per, and he’s averaging a career high in 3-point percentage (41.1%) and PER (24.5) while doing so.

The N.B.A. has suspended Carmelo Anthony one game for his confrontation with Kevin Garnett after Monday’s loss to the Boston Celtics. In the words of Stu Jackson, N.B.A. VP, Melo “attempted to engage with [Garnett] multiple times after Monday’s game and therefore a suspension was warranted. There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable… More
You may already be aware of this but the Knicks attempt a lot of 3-pointers. They also make a lot of 3-pointers. This inevitably leads to the discussion, similar to the Yankees “relying too heavily on the home run,” that the Knicks “live and die” by the 3-ball and that this style of play will… More
The New York Knicks welcomed the Brooklyn Nets to Madison Square Garden for the first time ever and handed them a 14-point loss. First Quarter The start of this game was quite boring, actually. The crowd was dull, as was the play. Melo, Felton and Chandler played the entire quarter, and helped the Knicks… More
As someone who predicted pretty early last season that the New York Knicks would be a better team without Amar’e Stoudemire and advocated trading him to the Bobcats for Boris Diaw and DeSagana Diop — both were expiring contracts and the move would have allowed New York to have cap space this summer — I’m… More
