Knicks and crowd just show up, and that’s plenty against the Wizards.
So the incomparable Ian Begley had a big scoop last night, getting information that Amar’e Stoudemire is willing to come off the bench when he returns. As I’ve previously written, this isn’t a big surprise. However he feels about the move, what was he going to do, go on strike?... Read More →

Because it had to end sometime.
There are no shortage of basketball reasons why the New York Knicks beat the San Antonio Spurs for the first time since Allan Houston had functioning knees. Raymond Felton had probably his best game as a pro. Carmelo Anthony provided a ton of value despite not scoring- arguably, he provided… Read More →
