It’s the Turnovers, Stupid!

This may sound a little crazy, so bear with me here, but in case you hadn’t heard, the 2012-13 New York Knicks were pretty great on offense. Finishing third in the league in offensive efficiency, the ‘Bockers tallied 108.6 points per 100 possessions while splashing an NBA-record 891 three-pointers. The Knicks’ efficient — dare I say machine-like? […]


Player Profile: Raymond Felton

PLAYER: Raymond Felton CONTRACT: 3 years remaining (2013-14: $3,637,073, 2014-15: $3,793,693, 2015-16: $3,950,313 (Player Option)) ACQUISITION DETAILS: Per an obscure South Carolina news report, mind you, the Knicks acquired Felton on or about July 14, 2012, and simulatenously set Linsanity ablaze. (Felton technically acquired in a sign-and-trade with the Portland Trailblazers.) WHAT TO EXPECT OFFENSIVELY:  The 29-year-old Felton is a solid offensive point guard with […]


Knicks’ New Organizational Mission? Stay the Course. (For Now.)

“Don’t get too comfortable.” That was the writing on the wall after last week’s managerial purge as Steve Mills, the man who presided over the Garden’s dark times, the era of “He Who Shall Not Be Named,” was surprisingly reanimated to replace Glen Grunwald. For any other NBA franchise, a front office shakeup needn’t signal […]


Why World Peace Makes Sense Now

I’ve seen quite an array of reactions in the past 24 hours on the Knicks’ decision to sign Queens native, and St. John’s alum, Metta World Peace (formerly Ron Artest) to a two-year deal made official yesterday out in the desert of Las Vegas. Some fans have been clamoring, since June of 1999, for World […]


Who Should We Root For: Miami Heat or Indiana Pacers?

The Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers are making the New York Knicks look bad, and it’s not fair or fun. The Knicks have been on summer vacation for about two weeks now and I’m still a bit petulant about the whole thing. The Knicks were supposed to reach the Conference Finals, sweep the Heat and […]


The Light May Be Dim, But It’s Still Lit

As soon as I begin to converse with you, the fans of New York, news comes across that the Knicks’ orthopedist is flying in from New York City to examine the swelling on Iman Shumpert’s surgically-repaired left knee that flared up three days ago. I really do not know what to assume of this. My optimism […]


Recap: Game 3 – Knicks 71, Pacers 82

An anemic offensive performance by the New York Knicks, coupled with a supreme defensive effort by the Indiana Pacers gave Indiana a controlling 2-1 series lead with a Game 4 still to be played on their home court. For most of the game, the Knicks and Pacers dangled in a middle ground, the score close […]


Pablo Prigioni’s Postseason Emergence

The New York Knicks’ second half explosion in Game 2 this past Tuesday – a massive 30-2 run that lasted from the end of the third quarter through the majority of the fourth quarter – will be credited and mostly remembered by Carmelo Anthony’s transformation into a scintillating fireball. Anthony, who’d been struggling shooting, suddenly […]


Game Two Recap: Knicks 105, Pacers 79

Boy how quickly things can turn in the playoffs. It took an overall combined effort for about three quarters for the Knicks to cap off the Pacers, until the floodgates opened in the fourth quarter for New York. This was a true game of runs, ending with a 36-4 run by the Knicks to end […]
