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

GAME RECAP: Pelicans 103, Knicks 99

Long-suffering Knicks fan Woody Allen may have said it best: “This team is a travesty. It’s a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.” Coming into last night’s game, the New York Knicks were riding an epic nine-game slide, the likes of which… More

STAT, ‘Melo, Please! You’re both right!

With the 3-10 Knicks preparing for battle in Los Angeles against the wayward member their doomed “big three,” the fingers are pointier as the ship be sinkier. Specifically, after New York’s horrid  102-91 loss to the Trailblazers on Wednesday night in Portland — the club’s sixth straight defeat — Amar’e Stoudemire criticized his comrades for… More

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,… More

GAME RECAP: Pacers 103, Knicks 96

To quote the great Babu Bhatt, you are a bad man, Paul George. A bad, bad man. The Knicks (3-8) lost a heart-breaker to the Pacers (10-1) last night, 103-96, and it’s fair to ask if things can possibly get any worse. Going in, this game had serious potential to be something close to a human… More

The Knicks Wall Roundtable

Now that we’re 10 games into the New York Knicks’ 2013-’14 campaign, it seems like a good time to take stock of where the team stands. Fortunately, we’ve got some of our staff’s best and brightest on the case, so without further ado, welcome to this season’s first installment of The Knicks Wall Roundtable: 1.   … More

GAME RECAP: Pistons 92, Knicks 86

“I’ve got a bad feeling about this.” Last night in Detroit, the Knicks (3-7) lost their third game in a row, this time falling to the Pistons (4-6) by a score of 92-86.  At times, it looked like the ‘Bockers had met their match defensively — meaning that Detroit is as bad as they are… More

Knicks Trading Iman Shumpert Now Is a Bad Idea

Iman Shumpert fans thought they’d dodged a bullet when the Denver Nuggets reportedly said “thanks, but no thanks” to New York’s alleged Shump-for-Kenneth Faried trade proposal. But like a mind-numbing Twitter discussion involving Jeremy Lin, rumors of Shumpert’s soon-to-be-traded status just won’t quit. They should, though. The really, really should To be clear, I do not hold… More
