Jeremy Conlin has been blogging about the NBA since 2031, the same year he discovered time travel. He has traveled to every non-glacial continent and hated one of them, but in the interest of national security has been asked not to divulge that information.

Wait, This Wasn’t Supposed To Happen. What Now?

It’s been an interesting week on the New York blogosphere, with hometown hero Jim Cavan pondering whether the Knicks should trade Carmelo Anthony over at Bleacher Report and friends Jared Dubin and netw3rk exchanging e-mails about whether or not to blow up the team (unclear on whether they mean that literally) at Grantland. Both pieces are well-written and entertaining, but both are ultimately undecided on the path the Knicks should take. As Dubin outlined in the Grantland piece, there isn’t any one quick fix – there are just too many problems to be fixed overnight in one broad stroke. But …continue reading

2013 Game Preview & Thread: Knicks vs. Hawks

Prior to Wednesday’s game, we ran a roundtable discussion with your very own Kevin McElroy, as well as HawksHoop’s Bo Churney and Cole Patty. Most of what we covered in that conversation is still germane to tonight’s game, so we encourage you to check that out for some background information that will inform much of what is discussed below. Since the roundtable was posted on Wednesday morning, each team has played two games – they squared off against each other Wednesday night (obviously), the Knicks fell to Houston on Thursday, and the Hawks beat Philadelphia in Atlanta last night. As …continue reading

Knicks-Hawks Roundtable

As the Knicks and Hawks prepare to square off in a home-and-home on Wednesday and Saturday, we thought it prudent to blow it all out with a long roundtable among a few Knicks bloggers and a few Hawks bloggers. In addition to myself, I called upon hometown favorite Kevin McElroy, and Cole Patty and Bo Churney from our ESPN TrueHoop sister site HawksHoop. With two games against Atlanta in the next four days, we hit on as many possible topics as we could: Let’s start plain and simple – which team is better right now, Atlanta or New York? Cole …continue reading

The Bargnani / Amar’e Survival Guide

In case you haven’t heard already, the Knicks traded Steve Novak, Marcus Camby, two second-round picks, and what — if karma and justice exist in the universe — will certainly be the #1 overall pick in the 2017 draft in exchange for Italian forward and long-two enthusiast Andrea Bargnani. The trade, for the most part, was panned, but that’s not important right now. What’s important is that we all collectively realize that the Knicks now have Andrea Bargnani and Amar’e Stoudemire on the same roster. This is not a drill. This is real life. It would seem preposterous that New …continue reading

[Insert Clever Title Here] <—— Conlin’s actual title

I am not a Knicks fan. Considering this audience, I’m not sure whether I should apologize for that, or thank [insert your God here] for it. Maybe both. I grew up in Boston, but my first real memories of Celtics basketball prominently involved Chris Ford, M.L. Carr, and Rick Pitino. Not exactly a nurturing environment for a young hoops fan. So I’m not a Celtics fan. For reasons unknown, I never latched onto another NBA franchise for fan-dom’s sake. For the better part of my life, I’ve been walking adrift in the NBA universe with no allegiance to one team …continue reading
