Previewing the Knicks’ 2012 Offseason

After a quick lockout-shortened season, we’re once again back to that time of year; that time filled with multiple trade and free agency rumours, and unfortunately, no actual Knicks basketball. Still, the 2012 offseason is as important as ever for the Knickerbockers, as they’ll look once again to build around Carmelo Anthony and company. Of […]

It’s Time for the Stars to Step Up

We are only one game into the NBA plyaoffs, and after all they did in April, the Knicks are back to their old ways. For a team that pays so much to three star players, they need to step up if we’re going to win this first round series. Going for a combined 20 points […]

Knicks Injury Situation: Is there Hope for Stoudemire and Lin?

Injuries always seem to haunt the Knicks. Last year, things were looking very bright indeed. Some were skeptical about Stoudemire and Anthony being able to work with each other but, ultimately, all were excited for the Knicks’ first playoff appearance in years. The rival Celtics were the opponent and, though they had an excellent defense, […]

Believe in Carmelo

“We should have kept Gallo” “He’s selfish” “He’s inefficient” “He’s overpayed” “Trade him away!” It’s time for the criticisms to stop. On Easter Sunday, Carmelo K. Anthony showed us exactly why we brought him back to the city of his birth: Because this is what he does. This is who he really is. What Melo did […]

Glen Grunwald Should Be Made the Long-Term GM

The timing of this post is probably a little bit off at this point in the season, but I think it’s about time that someone says this: Glen Grunwald should be retained as the General Manager of the New York Knicks once the season ends, if not now. As things stand now, the Knicks are […]

Tyson Chandler for Defensive Player of the Year?

The Knicks renaissance is in full swing with the emergence of Jeremy Lin, but Linsanity hasn’t been the only reason for the Knicks’ recent improvement. Center Tyson Chandler has been an ever-present so far this season and has almost single-handedly transformed the defense from a perennial bottom-dweller to a solid outfit.  In a team that boasts […]

It’s Time to Show Jared Jeffries Some Love

Amongst all this Linsanity, I’m going to go out there and do something relatively unheard of amongst Knicks fans; I’m writing a positive post about Knicks forward Jared Jeffries. Madison Square Garden tends to rain boos whenever the hated forward hits the floor, but this really is unfair. Yes, I’m being hypocritical here – I’ve […]

Back-to-Back-to-Back Beckons for Knicks

The Knicks will today start their thoughest patch of the regular season, with a game at MSG against the Chicago Bulls kicking off a demanding back-to-back-to-back stretch; an unfortunate outcome of 2011′s lockout. After facing off against the Bulls, the Knicks will then travel to Boston, before returning home to take on the New Jersey […]

Where could Amar’e Stoudemire Land if Traded?

Rumours of his departure had apparently calmed down since Chris Paul was traded to the Clippers but, recently, some Amar’e Stoudemire trade rumours have resurfaced. Although I would disagree with such a move by the Knicks – especially considering the fact that he was the man who turned the ship around last year – it’s […]

Knicks @ Cavaliers (Game 18) Preview

Baron Davis could make Knicks Debut, as New York takes on Cleveland Although it seems unlikely, coach Mike D’Antoni has yet to rule out the first sighting of point guard Baron Davis in a Knicks uniform today. If he plays, the former all-star will join a team coming of a massive win in Charlotte last […]

Knicks vs. Bucks (Game 15) Preview

Knicks Look to Pounce as Jackson Misses Bus and Game The Knicks will tonight face the struggling Milwaukee Bucks at Madison Square Garden, looking to start the climb out of the sub-500 zone of the NBA. The Bucks, like the Knicks, thought they had made enough off-season moves to at least improve on last year […]

Knicks vs. Magic (Game 13) Preview

Superman is in town this Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the Knicks will be looking to stop the star, who is rumoured to eventually be on his way to the soon-to-be cross-town rival Brooklyn Nets. With Dwight’s presence, the Knicks gameplan against the 8-3 Magic will be almost exclusively a plan to stop Howard […]

Knicks @ Thunder (Game 12) Preview

EDIT: Carmelo Anthony is out tonight, so we’ll miss out on what promised to be an amazing scoring match-up between he and Kevin Durant. Instead, Amar’e Stoudemire will have to carry the offensive load. It will be fiery swingman Bill Walker starting in place of Melo. The 6-5 Knicks, who have certainly improved a tad on […]

Knicks @ Pistons (Game 8) Preview

Today the Knicks are in Motor City to take on the ever-struggling Detroit Pistons. On paper it should be a routine victory but considering the games against Charlotte and Tornto earlier this week this may not be the case. The Pistons currently stand at 2-5, having re-signed most of the core of players that got […]

Knicks vs. Kings (Game 3) Preview

The struggling Knicks will look to finish their West Coast trip on a high tonight against the Sacramento Kings, before they return to the Garden to take on the Toronto Raptors. After going 0-2 in the first two games of the trip, the Knicks don’t want to leave the West empty-handed. The big news for […]
