Our own Mike Kurylo will be taking part in a sort of “pre-media day” event today where he will be able to ask Mike D’Antoni and Donnie Walsh questions. Mike will be posting quotes from the pair as they come on Knickerblogger’s Twitter account (which you can find here – follow us!). As Mike posts them to Twitter, I will be re-posting them here in the comments. Enjoy!
A quick look back at last year’s over/under. The Youngsters Gallo 3 point shooting percentage: 40% My Pick: Under Actual: 38.1% – Under Gallo shot a sizzling 44.4% in 2009, and appeared near automatic that year from downtown.

ESPN has put together a little toy for NBA fans. You have the chance to assemble the greatest 5 from any NBA team. For the Knicks, PG is the most obvious choice (I can’t imagine anyone over Frazier), but there are some interesting decisions to make for the remainder of the roster. At center you could argue Ewing/Reed all night. Power forward gives the most depth without a clear winner: DeBusschere, Gallatin, Larry Johnson, David Lee, Charles Oakley, and Willie Nauls. At SG before you select your favorite from Starks, Houston, and Monroe, don’t forget olde tymer Richie Guerin (a …continue reading
That’s the question Sebastian Pruiti of NBA Playbook attempts to answer. Pruiti looks at from where he’s taking (and making) three pointers to videos of his form. Very nice stuff.
