Kyle Lowry? No Thanks.

Quite simply, the rumored deal between the Knicks and the Raptors involving point guard Kyle Lowry would be a mistake for New York to consummate in any of its proposed iterations. As presented, the trade is basically a variation of the teams’ previous Andrea Bargnani exchange — which I opposed here and here — not… 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

GAME RECAP – Knicks 101, Bobcats 91

Now that’s more like it. The NBA season is a long one. You always want to be wary of labeling games as “must wins,” especially so early into the year. But facing the possibility of a fourth straight loss, last night’s rematch with the Charlotte Bobcats was a game the Knicks simply could not afford… More

GAME RECAP – Bulls 82, Knicks 81

I don’t know about you, but last night’s “playoff” game really drained me. And we are only two games through the 82-game slate! If the Knicks are going to play with our emotions like this all year — and we all know that they will do just that — we had all better pick up… More

GAME RECAP – Knicks 90, Bucks 83

The New York Knicks are undefeated! Okay, maybe it’s a tad premature to start getting sized for championship rings, but New York start its 2013-14 season by dispatching the visiting Milwaukee Bucks, 90-83, last night at the newly-refurbish Madison Square Garden. Though all Ws look the same in the standings, this one wasn’t all glitter and… More

Same As It Ever Was

Dawn breaks over Gotham and a new season of basketball is upon us. James Dolan, mercurial owner of the New York Knicks, strolls anonymously through Madison Square Park, headphones piping the Talking Heads’ “Once In a Lifetime” to that curious space between his ears. Even at this hour, there is a palpable energy on the streets. Dolan… More
