The NBA season is young. Teams need time to find their stride. Whatever it may be the Eastern Conference in the NBA (outside of Miami) is looking slow and old. The Western Conference however is thriving. It feels like a turkey overstuffed. Not with stuffing but with talent. Like that the Portland Trail Blazers can […]
Chris Smith is gone to the D-League, but J.R. Smith may still want to defend his brother's honor against Pistons' point guard Brandon Jennings. It is unlikely that the mercurial, and often immature J.R. Smith will say anything beyond a tweet or a twerp to Jennings, after he was hit with a $25,000 fine […]
Let's Do This. By this I mean get a win. By the way, an ESPN commentator say Knicks were foolish to let Lin walk for nothing. Do you agree? Last night he had 34 points and 12 assists. He should be too tired to give our guy Felton much trouble. Don't you think?
James Dolan issued a guarantee. Sounds like a must win to me.
J.R. Smith makes his return to the Knicks this afternnon in a face-off with the 5-1 Spurs: Coach Woodson has indicated that Smith, who says he still lacks explosiveness, will come off the bench and be limited to 30 minutes of action for now. Woodson liked the winning starting lineup of Carmelo Anthony, Pablo Prigiani, […]

Tonight, the Knicks tryagain to handle the Bobcats, but this time they do it without their big man Tyson Chandler. In the Knicks102-97 los to the Bobcats on Tuesday, although our heroes cut the score to a two point differential late in the 4th, the Knick continued to fail defensively. It is doubtful that the […]
Is The Knicks’ Bad Start J.R. Smith’s Fault? The Knicks are 1-3 and it is clear that the Knicks' defense or lack thereof is the major culprit. However, with the injury to Tyson Chandler highlighting the Knicks' deficiencies to start the season, it is easy to wonder where the Knicks would be if J.R. […]
There seems to be no news but bad news for the New York Knicks, In the first quarter of a humiliating loss to the Charlotte Bobcats, center Tyson Chandler fractured his right fibula in a collision with Kemba Walker, It is bad enough that the Knicks defense is already broken, but Chandler's injury threatens to […]
Tonight the Fanatics will gather to watch, and hopefully enjoy, the Knicks' contest against the Charlotte Bobcats. The Bobcats are 1-2, 4th in the Southeast Division. They lost their last game to the Pelicans. It was a butt whippin'. The Knicks are fortunate to play this team tonight and again Friday night. It should be […]

Just caught this pic on Twitter. Bill Russell statue being unveiled at Boston City Hall Plaza. If any athlete deserves homage, this is the dude. Celtic loving on a Knicks blog? If I gotta explain this one, you don't know much about basketball and what brings out the best in competition. Great competition. Nor do […]

Your browser does not support iframes. Yeah, we've had true New Yorkers ball for the Knicks and we've had ballers from other towns become true New Yorkers by playing for the Knicks. Still, there is nothing like a Knick acknowledging New York roots by hanging out with the rest of us and keeping it relatively […]
