ESPN New York: Knicks agree with Langston Galloway

The Knicks have agreed to a two-year contract with point guard Langston Galloway. Ian Begley has the details at ESPN: The Knicks have agreed to a contract with point guard Langston Galloway for the remainder of this season and the 2015-16 season, league sources told ESPNNewYork.com. Galloway’s second 10-day contract with the Knicks expired earlier Tuesday, so he had been free to sign with any team. His contract for the 2015-16 season contains a partial guarantee, according to league sources. Galloway has impressed the Knicks’ coaches since being signed to his first 10-day contract Jan. 7. The stumbling block as …continue reading

Mother Nature Doesn’t Want to Watch the Knicks Either

From ESPN NY: With one of the largest snowstorms in recent history bearing down on the New York City area, the NBA has postponed the New York Knicks’ and Brooklyn Nets’ home games scheduled for Monday night. With the National Weather Service describing this storm as a “crippling and potentially historic” blizzard, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency on Monday. Forecast projections for New York City and areas surrounding it predict that up to 20 to 30 inches of snow could hit the area over the next two days. The Knicks’ game against the Sacramento Kings …continue reading

Seacoast Online: Family keeps the faith as baby battles cancer

When Jim and Deana Cavan welcomed their son Everett into the world last April, they knew he would change their lives forever. What they didn’t realize was just how much their first-born child, who is currently fighting for his life in a Boston hospital, could teach them about courage, resiliency, hope and the human spirit. Nine-month-old “Rett” has been battling a rare and serious form of pediatric cancer after a rhabdoid tumor was discovered on his liver last fall. But despite a risky surgery to remove the mass and several rounds of chemotherapy to destroy additional cancer lesions on his …continue reading

2014-2015 Game Thread: Knicks @ Hornets

The Knicks are riding an unlikely three-game winning streak. They really would be better off with losing this one tonight, and the Hornets have been playing better as of late, so you figure this will be a loss, especially with Melo out. While I should be rooting for a loss, I am still rooting for the chance to say my new catch phrase, “A clutch trey by Galloway!” Let’s go! Knicks!

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Sixers, AKA “Tankageddon 2015″

In one of the most exciting games of the new year, the Knicks and the 76ers face off in a dramatic battle to see who gets more ping pong balls in the NBA Draft Lottery this June. The Sixers made a decisive move in preparation for the battle today by holding back “sick” Nerlens Noel (Tony Wroten is also out, but I think he’s legitimately injured). Let’s see whether Melo has a mysterious stomach flu right before tip-off. On top of exciting, this might be one of the ugliest games of the year, but it might also be so ugly …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Bucks

Now we get to see the Knicks lose on a whole other continent! It’s nice of the Knicks to get their losing done before dinner time here. Melo and STAT are back to play today, so hopefully the Knicks don’t accidentally win this one. Let’s go! Knicks!

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Grizzlies

So we have to hope that the Knicks play poorly enough to lose but also somehow persuade Marc Gasol to come play for them next season. This game should be a laugher, so just watch this one surprise us with a tough effort. Let me take a moment to pay my respects to longtime NBA reporter Stuart Scott, who passed away yesterday at the age of 49. All of the on-air tributes to him were quite moving. Knicks Go? Let’s! EDITED TO ADD: In major news, Iman Shumpert and JR Smith have been traded to Cleveland and Sam Dalembart has …continue reading
