The Too Soon Re-Evaluation of the Tyson Chandler Trade

With the New York Knicks failing miserably and Tyson Chandler shining back with the Dallas Mavericks, Phil Jackson’s decision to move on has started to draw heavy criticism. Understanding when the best time to part with a core member of a once successful team is a hard decision to make. Many factors need to be weighed and there isn’t a sure outcome no matter how much of a slam dunk or a miss the move seems to look like at the time. The 32-year-old Chandler (31 at time of the deal) was entering the final year of his contract. For …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Raptors

I thought that there was a Knick day game today, so I didn’t do a thread yesterday and missed the Phoenix game. So I thought, “Oops, I guess I mixed the days up.” Obviously, I did not. That’s what we in the Knicks circle call “compounding a mistake” (like “Hey, we screwed up our chances to get Chris Paul, let’s also make sure that we can’t amnesty Stoudemire”). The Knicks and Raptors go into halftime with the Knicks trailing 58-51. Prigs has had a good game off of the bench so far.

The Knicks Lost Again, But Here’s Something More Important to Think About

The Knicks lost again today (my apologies for the lack of a game thread, I thought they were playing a day game tomorrow not today), but once again they showed worrisome signs that they will soon be winning too many games as they hung with a decent Phoenix team for much of the game. Once they start getting their players back from injuries, this Knick squad might be just good enough to finish out of the bottom five. But anyhow, forget the Knicks for a second and lend your thoughts and/or prayers to our good friend, Jim Cavan, whose son …continue reading
