GAME RECAP: Knicks 98, Pelicans 91

*throws roses at Melo’s feet* Well, that was intense, wasn’t it? The Knicks earned themselves a rare win last night with a pulse pounding 98-91 victory over the lowly New Orleans Pelicans, staving off a furious (and potentially job-ending if accomplished) comeback by Anthony Davis and his young western conference squad. Both teams were neck… More

GAME RECAP: Knicks 114, Celtics 88

Hope you enjoyed that, Mr. Gola. After two consecutive losses to the new look Boston Celtics, including a 114-73 December drubbing at home, it was safe to say that Melo and company were looking to right some wrongs last night, and that they did. The Knicks dominated from start to finish, blowing out Rajon Rondo… More

Recap: New York Knicks 106, Philadelphia 76ers 110

The picture painted itself: The New York Knicks were down seven points, battling, with all their might, a Philadelphia 76ers team that is actively trying to lose games this season. The Knicks had just cut the lead to two points with two minutes remaining, but folded on themselves again; they allowed Thadeus Young a wide… More

GAME RECAP: Thunder 123, Knicks 94

Merry Christmas, everyone. Today our Knicks hosted Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 2:30 PM matinee, and despite the final score, the first quarter gave us reason to believe this would at least be a competitive game. Defensive issues aside, New York played loose, moved the ball, and went blow for blow with… More

Super-Teams and the New York Knicks’ Future

In an interview with NBA TV recently, Carmelo Anthony called LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh “smart” for teaming up together in Miami. The interview with Anthony and Ahmad Rashad only just aired, but it was filmed earlier in November when the New York Knicks were 3-5. Anthony praised James, Wade, and Bosh, and… More

Open Letter to James Dolan

Dear Mr. Dolan: I heard that you blocked a proposed trade for Kyle Lowry last week, due in part to the public perception that your Knicks have been taken to the proverbial woodshed in deals with Toronto’s GM, Masai Ujiri, in the past. To be completely honest, Sir, your action, or lack thereof, took me by… More

Knicks vs Bulls

GAME RECAP: Knicks 83, Bulls 78

The Knicks were so brutal tonight that they almost broke my will to write prose. Here, instead, are some attempts at Shakespearian Knickspearian Sonnets (Iambic Pentameter be damned!), haiku’s, and limericks (with some sparse prose) that describe just how brutal the Knicks are: The Knicks cannot defend a pick and roll Mike Woodson is still utterly… More

STFU!

Back in March or April of my junior year of high school, our English teacher got very sick and was replaced by a substitute. The sub was everything my teacher was not — young, energetic, maybe even a little attractive. She’d start class by telling us which song from the drive to work was stuck… More

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… More
