Way to bang with that dude with the unibrow! You know, Id have done the same thing on those Anderson threes – guy’s gotta miss sooner or later! With that weird ass hair patch thing he has going on?

Once again, it was in the intangibles that K-Mart made his money: body-slamming Hibbert, delivering line-stepping sledgehammer fouls that only …continue reading

Knicks 95, Hawks 91

New York Knicks 95 Final Recap | Box Score 91 Atlanta Hawks Andrea Bargnani, PF 31 MIN | 8-15 FG | 2-2 FT | 11 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 20 PTS | +6 It’s a sad commentary on the state of Bargs’ Bocker tenure that watching him splay wildly out of bounds and slapping misses aimlessly to save possessions makes me moistest with glee. On defense, he was a train of propane tanks barreling into a fertilizer factory — Al Horford ran amok and the Hawk wings routinely had their …continue reading

Bobcats 102, Knicks 97

Editor’s Note: The following recap was originally written for ESPN’s Daily Dime. As such, it has been written in as professional manner as possible, and without much in the way of crude jokes and jabs. I hope you’re OK with that. There are few for whom the storied hardwood of Madison Square Garden has served as a more incendiary stage than Kemba Walker – UConn hero, Bronx native, bona fide Big East legend. He just never thought he’d be playing the role of World’s Greatest Villain. Buoyed by Walker’s 25 points, six assists, and five rebounds, the Bobcats outlasted the …continue reading

The New York Knicks Podcast: It Begins

Happy Friday! Jason and Marc, the two handsome proprietors of the New York Knicks Podcast, were kind enough to invite me aboard for a little banter and back-and-forth. So if your boss is giving you a hard time (It’s Friday! What a jerk!) and you just need to get away and listen to three dudes wax buffoonish about the Knicks for a while, tune on in. We have a lot of fun. Mostly at Bargs’ expense. Here you go.

Knicks 90, Bucks 83

Milwaukee Bucks 83 Final Recap | Box Score 90 New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony, SF 38 MIN | 7-16 FG | 5-6 FT | 10 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 19 PTS | +4 First half: Found something of an early rhythm, due in part to not forcing the issue. Rotated well; hit the glass in style; and seemed more than happy to send Spaulding ’round the horn. And he dunked with two hands twice, which, let’s try and save those. Second half: A roller coaster seat studded with rusty nails …continue reading
