The Knicks travel to Chicago to take on Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah’s old team. You know that Rose is going to be extra pumped up for this game and will likely take 505 shots in it. Hopefully he makes at least 258 of them. Let’s go, Knicks!
James Harden and the Houston Rockets come into the Garden to face the Knicks tonight in a game that should be very interesting to watch. Former Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni has a team that actually embraces his coaching philosophy, which means that they run – a lot. And shoot threes – a lot. However, like D’Antoni’s other famous teams, they also do not play much defense, although part of that is the fact that their starting backcourt is James Harden and Eric Gordon and their starting power forward is Ryan Anderson.

The New York Knicks try for a winning record early in the new season as they travel to Auburn Hills to take on Andre Drummond and the Detroit Pistons. Derrick Rose will likely have a good matchup on defense tonight, with the diminutive Ish Smith likely guarding him, so this could be a game where he could really shine. Or not.

Here is an archive of all the stories featured so far. For a team that has been in the NBA for well over six decades, the New York Knickerbockers sadly have only won two NBA championships. The main reason for that is that they have spent large …continue reading
I figured that my latest Basketball Legends Revealed would be of interest to Knick fans, as it involved a Knick game from 1977. It’s sort of an Unsung Knick History entry, in a way. ;) You can check it out here.
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
I did one of these last week but then the Knicks traded everyone, so now let’s take a new look at the Knicks’ cap situation heading into free agency at midnight, July 1st. Enjoy!
