I figured we might as well take a short break to discuss the NBA Draft. Will the Knicks get into the draft? Let’s find out!
I know it’s been a while, but I guess we should have an official thread for this garbage trade. From Marc Stein and Ian Begley (the trade was broken by Shams Charania): The Knicks acquired Derrick Rose from the Bulls on Wednesday, hoping the former NBA MVP can be their answer at point guard. New York traded center Robin Lopez, guard Jose Calderon and guard Jerian Grant to Chicago, which shipped guard Justin Holiday, Rose and a 2017 second-round pick back to the Knicks. A source close to Rose said the Chicago native was very emotional about leaving his hometown …continue reading
Last year, I did a “State of the Knicks’ Salary Cap” piece right before the the NBA free agency period began, but people have been asking for it earlier and earlier, so what the hell, now that we know that Arron Afflalo and Derrick Williams are both opting out of their contracts, we pretty much know where the Knicks’ cap room will stand heading into free agency, so let’s detail it.

Chris Broussard and Ian Begley report: New York Knicks interim coach Kurt Rambis continues to get strong consideration to become the team’s full-time coach, but team president Phil Jackson does intend to speak to other available candidates, according to league sources. Sources told ESPN.com on Monday that former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt is among the names who interest the Knicks. This is where we are as Knick fans. We are legitimately excited when there are reports saying that the Knicks will interview other coaches, while wanting to keep their terrible current head coach. But hey, I’ll sure as heck …continue reading
I was so caught up in the great sports day with the dramatic Masters final and the Warriors/Spurs that I forgot that this team was still playing. At the half, the Knicks trail the Raptors 54-51. The Knicks have a chance to avoid losing 50 games! Let’s go, Knicks!
