It is with some sadness that I must tell you I’m leaving LoHud.com after three wonderful years here. This is one of those good news/bad news moments for me. Between my work at Sports on Earth and Capital New York, I found I simply didn’t have enough time to devote… Read More →
Post Game Thoughts
Press release below the line. Here’s the problem, briefly: the Knicks are keeping Chris Smith, who nobody seems to believe is a player who can help them, instead of the rights to Jeremy Tyler, a promising young big man. Tyler can sign with any other team now. This is how… Read More →
Wow. Did not expect this at all. Press release below from the Knicks, and much more on this to come. STEVE MILLS NAMED PRESIDENT & GENERAL MANAGER OF THE NEW YORK KNICKS NEW YORK, September 26, 2013 – The New York Knickerbockers announced today that Steve Mills, who previously served… Read More →
The Knicks needed a center, especially after Jeremy Tyler got hurt, and they have one in Cole Aldrich. His advanced stats suggest he should help them, though the caveat is that’s in a small sample. But this may be Aldrich’s best chance to prove himself, on a team with veteran… Read More →
Just landed in my Inbox, from the Knicks. “Today, Knicks guard J.R. Smith had patella tendon surgery and an arthroscopy for a tear in the lateral meniscus, of his left knee, at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, performed by Dr. Answorth Allen.

When even Felton’s 60-footers fall, it is a good night for the Knicks.
Just got this in my inbox. If you are inclined to donate to a charity, and love the Knicks, this seems perfect. See text below: The New York Knicks have donated tickets in the West Balcony and provided VIP on-court access during a pre-game warm up and shoot-around to support… Read More →
I sure don’t envy the decision-makers for the New York Knicks. The trade deadline is Thursday, 3 p.m. By then, the Knicks need to figure out: 1. If Iman Shumpert can get healthy enough to help with their primary defensive deficiency, slowing down quick, penetrating guards. 2. If Jason Kidd,… Read More →
Some Knicks news following last night’s 96-89 loss to the Nets. Ronnie Brewer will play Wednesday, with his broken finger taped. Problem is, hot shooting was a big part of Brewer’s start with the Knicks. That was bound to regress to the mean eventually, but a broken finger can only… Read More →
