2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Kings

Sorry, fellas, I totally forgot that there was a game tonight. Why in the world are they playing a long road trip, then time off, then travel to Washington and then back to New York for a back-to-back? That is some stupid scheduling. Anyhow, at halftime, one terrible team is up 3 points on the other terrible team. Let’s go, terrible team #2! Also, congrats to Cleanthony Early for getting back into the NBA! Very impressive work from the youngster.

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Clippers

Coming off a demolishing victory of the Phoenix Suns, the Knicks head to the Staples Center to take on the Los Angeles Clippers. With Arron Afflalo and Lance Thomas both out of commission once again, star shooting guard Sasha Vujacic will get the start again, as I’m sure he will light up the Clippers in his return to where he played his best seasons in the league. The Knicks will likely win this game, as they need to win just enough games so that Phil Jackson can keep Kurt Rambis. Because, well, you know – because Knicks. Let’s go meaningless …continue reading

Knicks Sign Point Guard Tony Wroten to 3-Year Contract

The Knicks are finalizing a three-year deal with free agent fourth year point guard, Tony Wroten, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Shams Charania (who has become one of the top “scoops” guy in the business). So far in his career, Tony Wroten has been awful. Just awful. However, he’s only 22 years old, he’s very fast (although he’s coming off of a significant injury) and the three-year deal is likely not guaranteed beyond this season (although we’ll know for sure later today when it is finalized). EDITED TO ADD: There are minimal guarantees for the 2nd and 3rd seasons. With the …continue reading

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Pacers

Oops, I thought that this was a later game. I think the Knicks match up well against the Pacers. Monta Ellis is really not all that good. I’m okay with his 50% True Shooting Percentage going nuts. It will be fun to finally see Myles Turner against the Knicks. There’s no draft pick waiting for them, so let’s go Knicks!

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs Wizards

Sorry, folks, someone else was scheduled to do this game thread, so I wanted to wait until the last moment before throwing one up on my own. Anyhow, today is the first game of the Kurt Rambis era of the New York Knicks. If Kristaps Porzingis suddenly starts getting played less than Kevin Seraphim, you know things are bad. Seriously, though, I honestly don’t think Rambis’ disastrous stint in Minnesota says that much about him as a coach. That was just a really bad team. I think Rambis is not an awful coach, but nor is he a particularly good …continue reading

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs Nuggets

I totally forgot that there was a game today. It is so weird that the NBA has the Knicks playing the same day as the Super Bowl. In any event, the Knicks are currently in the first period against the Denver Nuggets, trailing 14-10. Hopefully at least this Denver team does not win today. Carmelo Anthony is back in the starting lineup to play against his old team. Let’s go Knicks!
