Knicks 2013 Preview: The Ex-Knicks

For those that don’t care for former Knicks, we have a diversion. Check out this video on what the prequel to Star Wars should have been. It’s about 10 minutes long and doesn’t mention Jeremy Lin. Oh damn I brought up his name in the intro. 1. Jeremy Lin 65 games played and 15 PER 78% Over To be over, Lin will have to both be healthy and remain an above league average point guard. I find it hard to think that Jeremy will be under a 15 PER, but not impossible. If you entirely discount 2012 as a fluke, …continue reading

Tyson Chandler Hurts Big Knee

Latest scoop on Tyson Chandler, according to Frank Isola of the Daily News, is that he banged knees with Gerald Wallace, left the game on crutches and needs an MRI. Is it me, or is Tyson Chandler’s knee the most important knee in all of New York city? The Yankees are done, the Rangers aren’t even playing, no one cares about the Islanders, and the Jets already lost their best player. The only other person in the Big Apple that means more to his team is Eli Manning. And before you start thinking that Carmelo Anthony is more important to …continue reading

Knicks 2013 Preview: The Team

1. Defensive Rank 5.5th (under = better) 78% Over I’m kinda shocked by this one, because I took the under. Sure staying a top 5 defense season after season is difficult. Add in the injury to Shumpert and the over seems entirely probably. On the other hand the offseason was mostly about adding defensive depth. When Tyson sits out a handful of games, the Knicks won’t be resorting to Jorts to start. It’ll be Camby or ‘Sheed or Kurt. There won’t be a Billy Walker to start in 8 games. Instead it’ll be White or Brewer. Defensively, they’re better in …continue reading

But, unlike next …continue reading

Next Day Reaction: Sixers 98, Knicks 90

Editors Note: Sorry this took forever. I was watching the debate and then reading the post-debate polls and then checking the Liberal blogs for their reaction and the Conservative blogs for their reaction and then checking Nate Silver’s feed for any changes and intrade to see what the Presidential markets think and then worrying and re-reading the numbers and re-checking the blogs. Basically, the same as I was during LeBron’s Free Agency but this ish matters. I’m a wreck. A total nervous wreck. So I didn’t watch the game until the 1am MSG re-broadcast so I could properly engage in …continue reading
