At this point in the Knicks’ sluggish start to the season, a win is a win is a win. At least, that’s what the box score says. In truth, New York (3-4) was extremely fortunate last night to have escaped the nation’s capital without an “L,” as the now 0-7… Read More →
Per Ian Begley of ESPN, Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni is giving serious consideration to inserting rookie-sensation Iman Shumpert into the starting lineup, perhaps as soon as this Friday when the team travels to Washington to face the 0-6 Wizards. “I think you do consider it,’’ D’Antoni said of starting Shumpert….

For 36 minutes against the Toronto Raptors last night, the Knicks played like the better team. They shot over 50% from the floor, they gave maximum effort on the defensive end, and they showed grit in fighting back from a double-digit scoreboard-deficit. Unfortunately, NBA teams are required to play for… Read More →
Picture this: Your gorgeous new 55″ high-definition television set has just arrived. It looks great mounted in your family room above the mantle. In mere moments, you’ll fire it up for the first time, and life as you know it will never be the same. Except the power button brings… Read More →
Per ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Knicks have claimed PG Jeremy Lin off waivers from the Houston Rockets. The Harvard product played sparingly last season for the Golden State Warriors, but at 6’3″, 200 lbs., he’s an intriguing player, having averaged 18.0 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists for the D-League’s… Read More →
Forgetting for a moment that the true condition of Baron Davis‘ spine is less certain than the ending to Inception, the most compelling aspect to the Knicks’ signing of the once-elite point guard is that he’s never really played alongside a superstar before; let alone two of them. Browse the… Read More →
The date was June 22, 1994. A day which continues to live in infamy for Knick fans. After more than two decades of occasionally tantalizing highs, often eclipsed by heartbreaking lows, the franchise was finally on the precipice of reacension to the championship heights not seen since the days of… Read More →
“Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design.” That was essentially the Commissioner’s message to fans of the NBA last night, after the Emperor magnanimously approved the trade sending Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for a package centered around Eric Gordon and Minnesota’s… Read More →
If you’re among the long-suffering Verizon FIOS customers without access to the MSG Network’s High-Definition feed, you’re in luck! The Knicks and Rangers will be seen in HD on FIOS, starting over the next couple of days, and in some markets, tomorrow.Here’s the scoop from Verizon.
Multiple reports indicate that New York continues to pitch former-Knick Jamal Crawford to accept less money and years – likely the team’s $2.5 “mini-MLE” for one season – to rejoin the franchise. In the immortal words of Mr. Marv Albert: YES! The problem is that Crawford, 31, has undoubtedly garnered better… Read More →
Just over two hours remain until the start of free agency, but perhaps the most interesting story as training camps open – for Knick fans, anyway – is the revelation that the the newly-minted collective bargaining agreement appears to contain a provision whereby players can restructure their existing contracts. So… Read More →
Well, that’s a little more like it. No sense in wasting valuable Interwebs-space on Chris Paul-in-a-Lakers-uni when there’s more “real” digital-material readily available. At present there’s no word on what number Tyson Chandler will wear – you know, on account of him not actually being part of the team or… Read More →
Well, thanks to the fine folks at LakerNation.com, that didn’t take very long. At a bare minimum, at least those Stoudemire-for-Paul rumors weren’t able to fester. UPDATE (9:12 p.m.) – Yeah, umm… so, about that whole CP3-to-LA thing? Just kidding!
Earlier tonight I was perusing the Twitters, and stumbled across the feed of none other than Touré, a man who I had stopped following some months ago. In fairness, when I left the noted writer, I wasn’t aware that he had once interned for Rolling Stone Magazine. Given that Axel… Read More →
Ahh, the NBA draft. A place where soon-to-be millionaires wear gaudy suits and hilarity ensues. We’re live-blogging the first round (at least until the Knicks pick at 17), so sit back, relax, and enjoy the show! 7:32pm – David Stern takes to the podium amidst a chorus of boos from… Read More →
