For the second time in three years, the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics are set to do battle in the first round of the NBA playoffs. This story tells you all you need to know about Celtics’ fans’ view of the Knicks. “Ah, the Knicks, Boston’s little brother in basketball. Keep your chin up […]
I wouldn’t be the first person to observe that the Knicks’ remaining schedule is brutal. Most people point to the two obvious metrics: opponent’s records and road games. Of the Knicks’ remaining 24 games, only nine are against teams that currently have a losing record. In addition, the Knicks only have nine home games left […]
The New York Knicks will enter the season as a 35-1 (40-1 just a few days ago) underdog to win the NBA Championship. By using vegas’ odds, let’s take a look at the expected Eastern Conference breakdown:
This year’s NBA Playoffs have featured some ridiculous individual performances, the latest one being Rajon Rondo’s monster 44 points, 10 assist and eight rebounds performance last night. While it has been more than three weeks since the Knicks were eliminated by the Miami Heat, one of our own had one of those great performances: Carmelo […]
If there’s one thing that the Heat have exposed in the first four games of this series, it’s that Steve Novak is a one-trick-pony. Yes, we knew this, but we never knew the extent. The Heat’s super-quick perimeter rotations leave Novak with essentially no time to hoist up a three – even though he has […]
In yesterday’s game four victory over the Miami Heat, Baron Davis pushed the ball towards the hoop during a fast break, then proceeded to collapse, while clutching his knee. Earlier in the series, Knicks fans saw Iman Shumpert go down with a torn ACL, so when Boom Dizzle fell to the floor, we expected the […]
WOW. Already going into the game with news that defensive stalwart Tyson Chandler might not be at 100% due to the flu, the Knicks were completely massacred by the Miami Heat in Game 1 of their Easter Conference Round 1 series, 100-67. LeFlop James led the Heat with 32 points and four steals. New York […]
With just over six minutes left in the third-quarter, rookie Iman Shumpert collapsed to the ground, grabbing his left knee. Shumpert was dribbling the ball up the court and while trying to crossover to get by Mario Chalmers, Shumpert planted awkwardly with his left leg. Like most significant injurys, Shumpert’s came without any contact. He […]
Karma could be on the side of the Knicks, since the last time that they played the Heat in the first-round they went onto play the Spurs in the Finals. In addition, during that 1999 season, the NBA also had a lockout shortened campaign, that saw the team hurt by the injury to Patrick Ewing.
The New York Knicks have been blessed with an extremely deep team – even Mike D’Antoni stretched his usual 8-9 man rotation – but with the playoffs starting, the rotation will shrink… The question is, who will make the cut?
