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 […]


With Rudy Gay Traded, Should Knicks Deal Shumpert for Lowry?

ICYMI last night, what with the Knicks lighting yet another dumpster fire to heat Madison Square Garden against the Celtics yesterday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! broke news of a trade between the Toronto Raptors and the Sacramento Kings, wherein Toronto sent the overpriced Rudy Gay, along with two throw-in players, to Sacramento for Grevis Vazquez, Patrick […]


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 […]


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 […]


For Knicks, Spacing Out Is a Good Thing

Last season, New York’s third-ranked NBA offense was fueled by small lineups, great floor spacing and record-setting three-point shooting. Through the first few games of this season — in some cases due to necessity, if not by design — the formula had changed. Canadian import Andrea Bargnani was inserted into the starting lineup and Carmelo Anthony was […]


Mike Francesa and Jamie O’Grady – State of the Knicks

Once again, Jamie is back as a guest with New Yawk’s Numbah One, talking all things Knicks. We’ve got the diet cokes on ice, so settle in and let the mellifluous sounds of Gotham’s most beloved sports media figure brighten up your day. Editor’s Note: This recording is a parody skit. The real Mike Francesa did not […]


GAME RECAP – Rockets 109, Knicks106

Woo boy. That one sure hurt. The worst thing about losses like these isn’t the actual loss itself, but more so how the little things, had they gone differently, stood between New York and a victory. Fresh off a 95-91 road win against the Atlanta Hawks, the Knicks fell to 3-5 last night on the young season, coming up […]
