Game two, y’all! A brief trip to the land of hog-butchers and heady winds. It is also All Hallowe’s Eve, which means the Knicks will be sporting their brand-spanking new orange duds and the Chicagoans will be resplendent in their black alts! Orange + Black = CANDY! The debut pic.twitter.com/i4bdqXmArU — NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) October 31, 2013 Speaking of which, Amar’e Stoudemire gets his turn in the aged PF/C wheel tonight, and earlier today, he voiced his views on this evening’s merriment (Halloween, not the game, to be clear). They are…interesting. Here are some thoughts o’ mine over at our interweb …continue reading
The Andrea Bargnani trade was at the center of the Knicks’ offseason hoopla, dividing the fan base into two armies at war. Basically, like any other Knicks transaction outside the Chris Smith signing. With the 2013-14 NBA season upon us, it’s no longer worth our time to debate the ins and outs of the deal itself. Bargs is here and Mike Woodson and crew have turned to figuring out how to best implement him as the season grinds on. The team’s seven exhibition games might not be the best wellspring for basketball analysis, but — save for last night’s not …continue reading

Milwaukee Bucks 83 Final Recap | Box Score 90 New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony, SF 38 MIN | 7-16 FG | 5-6 FT | 10 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 19 PTS | +4 First half: Found something of an early rhythm, due in part to not forcing the issue. Rotated well; hit the glass in style; and seemed more than happy to send Spaulding ’round the horn. And he dunked with two hands twice, which, let’s try and save those. Second half: A roller coaster seat studded with rusty nails …continue reading
Ray. Pablo. Shump. Melo. Tyson. Welcome back, Knickerbloggeristas. You know what to do.
So the regular season’s about to start (Yay!) but before we plunge face first into Knick games that count/matter, if you’re in a reflective mood, I wrote some things (well, a lot of things) about Media Day 2013. And then Mills was asked if he had any regrets about his prior tenure—you remember, the one where the Knicks became a bleak joke. He said, “No,” and I stopped taking notes. I recall him adding that he thought he did a “great” job and that he wouldn’t change a thing. Which is clearly madness. During Mills’ five years as President of Madison …continue reading
This is it, folks — the answers to the most pertinent questions facing the Knicks this season. The Knickerblogger contributors answered a series of poll questions and, like Moses, I have been commanded to bring these great truths before you. As is a proper scholarly presentation of data, I’ll present to you the poll results in percentages, so that you don’t know what kind of sample size we’re dealing with. Just assume that Knickerblogger articles are outsourced to India, where over 500 factory workers churn out daily articles which are then posted under a handful of names, and all those …continue reading
