2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Cavaliers

In all seriousness, tonight’s game has no special meaning. They’re on the road, facing the defending Eastern Conference champions and perhaps the best player in the game (certainly the best player of his generation). So a loss really wouldn’t be a big deal. However, being over .500 five games into the season? How amazing would that be? Plus, Cleveland does not have a great penetrating point guard, which gives you some hope that the Knicks won’t get torched. I know, I know, don’t get your hopes up, but darnit, I can’t help but get my hopes up! So come on, …continue reading

Knicks 2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Wizards

The Knicks take on the Washington Wizards on Halloween Night, the second night of a back-to-back for the Wizards. Hopefully they will be tired out and the Knicks will be able to take advantage. John Wall and Bradley Beal are a tough matchup for the Knicks’ current starting backcourt, but hopefully they’ll be able to hang in there until the faster second unit enters the game. Former Wizard and new Knicks Kevin Seraphim makes his season debut tonight. Hopefully he torments his former team! Let’s go Knicks!

Sorry, folks, there was a bit of confusion. One of our newest writers, Heather Rose, will be handling the recap of the game tonight, but I thought that that meant that she would be starting the game thread, as well. My mistake. Welcome to the Knicks’ home opener, as the Knicks try to run the Hawks out of the Garden. The Hawks looked sluggish in a Game 1 loss to the Pistons. Can the Knicks follow up yesterday’s amazing blowout victory with another win over a playoff team from last year? Let’s hope so! Let’s go Knicks! We join the …continue reading

NY Daily News: Knicks interested in acquiring Clippers guard Jamal Crawford

Frank Isola of the NY Daily News reports: The Knicks have expressed interest in acquiring Clippers guard Jamal Crawford, according to a source. Coincidentally, the Cavs are also pursuing a deal for Crawford, the 34-year-old former Sixth Man of the Year. Miami is another team that is also interested in Crawford. It is unclear what the Clippers are asking for in return. Isola doesn’t get into the fact that the Knicks have nearly zero tradeable assets, so this is almost assuredly a pipe dream, but, well, I am sure someone did tell him that the Knicks are interested in Crawford, …continue reading

This is the latest in a series of examinations into different games, events and decisions that impacted Knicks history in some way, shape or form. Stories that are not as famous as, say, “The Dunk” or Willis Reed playing Game 7, but still have a place in Knicks history, especially for die-hard fans. Here is an archive of all the stories featured so far. The Knicks have a long history of having fathers and sons both play for them.
