Congratulations to Team USA and Carmelo Anthony!

It’s not every day (or year) that a New York Knick wins an Olympic Gold Medal. In fact, this is only the fifth time since the Olympics began allowing professional players to compete (something that the United States actually voted against allowing to happen, by the way) that a New York Knick player has won a Gold Medal (Patrick Ewing in 1992, Allan Houston in 2000, Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler in 2012 and now Melo for a second time). So I figured we should take a moment to give our regards to Melo and the rest of Team USA …continue reading

ESPN.com: Knicks Trade for Derrick Rose

I know it’s been a while, but I guess we should have an official thread for this garbage trade.

A source close to Rose said the Chicago native was very emotional about leaving his hometown …continue reading

The reason now is a little bit too early, and why I am calling this an “initial” state is that we don’t know if the Knicks will get a …continue reading

An Open Letter to James Dolan

One of our longtime posters, Frank, asked if I could share this open letter he wrote to James Dolan. So here ya go! – BC Dear Mr. Dolan, I have been a Knicks fan for as long as I can remember. I remember scanning the box scores in the paper as a kid, looking for Bill Cartwright’s and Bernard King’s line after every game. I lived and died with the Knicks of the 90s, cheering their lunchbox mentality and how much they seemed to embody the grittiness and toughness of New York City. I was even a season ticket holder …continue reading
