Knicks 2013 Preview: Forwards/Centers Survey

The 2013 Knicks preview continues. We asked smart people questions. They answered. We untied them. 1. Steve Novak 43.6% 3P% Over 56% That’s his career average, but Novak ended the season on a sour note when Miami completely shut him down. Knick fans were drunk on his intoxicating stroke knocking down three after three. But after the Heat showed how to shut him down, they must be wondering if other teams will follow suit, which would make 2013 an awful hangover for Novak. The young forward has worked on expanding his repertoire, with one or two dribble pull-up shots and …continue reading

Knicks 2013 Preview: Guard Survey

So we, the good writers at KnickerBlogger, had a little pow-wow on various aspects of the upcoming 2013 Knicks season. Over the next few days, actually pretty much up until the season starts, KnickerBlogger will publish these results, as well as a few pertinent questions that loom over the boys in chang and laahm in ’13. 1. Raymond Felton 15 PER (Over/Under) Over 55% Felton’s career PER is 14.4, which would make this a statistical tossed coin, especially if you consider a normal career path would be peaking at around the age of 28. Hence one would expect the Knicks …continue reading

[New York Post] Amar’e to miss Knicks’ opener due to knee cyst (Mon, 22 Oct 2012 03:41:58 -0500) SYRACUSE â??

Amar’e Stoudemire Out 2-3 Weeks With Ruptured Cyst on his Left Knee

According to ESPN, Amar’e Stoudemire will miss 2-3 weeks due to a ruptured cyst on his left knee. Stoudemire returned to New York City on Sunday morning to get a reevaluation of his knee, where he suffered a bone bruise on Oct. 10 during practice. An MRI then revealed the latest injury. The left knee is the same one he had microfracture surgery on in Oct. 2005, when he was a member of the Phoenix Suns. While he missed basically the entire 2005-06 campaign, he came back stronger as ever in the following seasons. Stoudemire has indeed been no stranger …continue reading

For a coach who says his first unit needs to spend more time on the court together, it wasn’t here last night that Mike Woodson decided that process should continue. In a …continue reading

Celtics 109, Knicks 98

New York Knicks 98 Final 109 Boston Celtics Kurt Thomas, PF 14 MIN | 2-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 4 PTS | +4 Pretty much a standard issue outing from our resident prune juicer. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of role he ends up carving out if and when Copeland is officially brought on. That is, beyond asking the bedreaded neophyte where KT’s teenage daughters might pick up one of those purdy, fancy-ass headbands. Raymond Felton, PG 21 MIN | 3-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 7 AST …continue reading
