Knicks @ Spurs or “Remember the AlMelo”

So after losing 9 games in a row, I was pretty sure all the fight was out of this team.  Then we all heard reports of Carmelo Anthony (questionable with sore left knee) nearly coming to blows with Timmy Hardaway Jr (questionable defense and decision making).  If they did fight, I’d put my money on Melo.  Timmy strikes me as someone who would not keep his guard up if his on court defense is any indication. Speaking of defense, the Spurs are 3rd in the NBA in defensive rating. And at 15-6, the defending NBA champs are going to be …continue reading

Knicks at Bucks or Wait 15 games before full potency.

So on Sunday before the game against the Nuggets I declared the team dead. Turns out, they were only mostly dead.  There were a few signs of life against a Denver team that really is dead. So here we are about a month into the season, and we saw the first game where the Knicks didn’t look all dead.  I wonder if Phil Jackson playing the role of the Miracle Max gave the team a miracle pill that takes 10-15 games to start working. I don’t have any basketball insights (as usual).  So enjoy the clip that inspired the post …continue reading

Game thread and Eulogy: Knicks v. Nuggets

Next to nobody is going to read this.  And that is probably a good thing because besides the fact that it is written by easily the least talented member of the staff, there really isn’t anything a Knick fan is going to want to see here. To the old site vets who know better than to waste your time, good call.  To any newbies or optimists, you have been warned. Still here? Okay then. I’ve looked at the schedule and concluded that we are doomed.  Including this Sunday matinee the Knicks have 24 games left until the end of the …continue reading

2014-2015 Game Thread: Smiths v. Nets

Star center Jason Smith (3.9rbs/36min) looks to lead the Knicks to victory tonight in Brooklyn versus the Nets. The Knicks have dropped 2 in a row including a heart breaker to the Pistons in which the team came up just one ill-advised-step-back three pointer short of a victory. Speaking of which… J.R. Smith (.440 TS%)–the second part of the dynamic Smith duo–is done serving his one game suspension. J.R. Smith sat a game after the NBA head offices decided his ball hawking wasn’t exactly directed where it should be. Hopefully the Smiths will get help from supporting players Anthony, Stoudemire, …continue reading
