Looking Ahead

After the Knicks were eliminated by the Pacers in the second round of the playoffs, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth about the bleak future faced by this team. To be fair, there are plenty of reasons for concern. The team is old, the oldest in the league. The team was beset by […]


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 […]


The Novak/Stoudemire Dilemma

Thanks in part to the frequently injured status of Amare Stoudemire, Mike Woodson has been forced to be very creative in his approach to lineup building this season. Using the talent pool available to him, he’s completely twisted the traditional point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward, center lineup into something uniquely special and […]


Game Three Essentials

From Madison Square Garden, to TD Bank Garden, game three tonight is not going to be any stroll in the park, or should we say garden. Carmelo Anthony and company are prepared for a hostile environment and rejuvenated Boston squad playing at home for the first time since the Boston marathon bombings a little less […]


In Which I Grant You Permission to Enjoy It

“They may reach the promise land, but, for now, as the Knicks slump towards Portland, it seems they have lost their way and the wheels have fallen off the wagon.” I wrote my last post huddled by the limited candlelight that barely illuminates “Knicks Fan Hell”. You know, that place you crawl into when the […]


The New Insanity

A morale destroying losing streak.  Major injuries to multiple key stars. A reserve guard suddenly putting up MVP type numbers. A surprising seven game winning streak led by some unexpected heroes. Sound familiar? The Knicks’ current winning streak isn’t their only impressive win streak this season, but it’s the one that most reminds me of […]


The Wish List

Well, they’ve done it. The Knicks have clinched a playoff spot. Now I can finally stop holding my breath, I can shave my “they’re-not-in-the-playoffs-yet” beard and I can dump my girlfriend. That last one might not have much to do with the Knicks, but I like to share. Speaking of sharing, now that the boys […]


Recap: Clippers 93, Knicks 80

  The losing streak has reached four games.  The Knicks dropped the fourth game of their West Coast trip  to the Los Angeles Clippers by a score of 93-80.  Chris Paul was the game’s leading scorer with 20 points while passing off for eight assists.  Blake Griffin registered a double-double for the Clippers with 12 […]


Calling Chris Copeland

Given the size of NBA rosters, it’s not that uncommon for a team to have a player languishing at the end of the bench, basically playing the part of a human victory cigar. For the 2004 Champion Detroit Pistons, it was Darko Milicic, who averaged less than five minutes a game, while only getting into […]
