A new season is upon us, so who better to discuss all that’s happening with the Knicks than New Yawk’s Numbah 1?! We’ve got all the angles covered, so grab a diet coke or three, settle in, and let the mellifluous sounds of Gotham’s most beloved sports media figure brighten up your day. Editor’s Note: […]


GAME RECAP – Knicks 83, Bobcats 85

Aaaaaand the preseason is over. In the Knicks’ official unveiling of the fully transformed Madison Square Garden, New York lost to the Charlotte Bobcats, 85-83. The score was mostly a sidebar, though, as coach Mike Woodson elected to play Amar’e Stoudemire, J.R. Smith, and Kenyon Martin, each of whom is coming back from various injuries. […]


Knicks Must Defend the Rim! (And the Threes, too.)

Mike Woodson is on-record that one of the New York Knicks’ goals this season is to be a top-10 defensive team in the NBA. It’s a lofty goal, especially when one considers New York’s current roster and the franchise’s general aversion to team defense — at least in recent memory. Ask the coaching staff about […]


GAME RECAP – Bucks 105, Knicks 95

After six preseason games, last night’s contest against the Milwaukee Bucks almost felt like a regular season tilt. Whereas Monday night’s loss to the Toronto Raptors served as an extended audition for players seeking one of New York’s final roster spots, Mike Woodson was certainly focused on molding his regular season lineups in Green Bay. Unfortunately, still short-handed, […]

Old-Geezer Knicks Were Grunwald’s Fault, Huh?

ICYMI, Grantland’s Zach Lowe casually dropped an interesting nugget regarding the surprising dispatch of the second-best GM the Knicks have ever had with a last name beginning with “Grun”: The Knicks hired Mills in part because he believes they should keep the cap picture clear for the summer of 2015, invest in player development, and […]
