2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Thunder

This is a huge game for the tank. The Knicks head to OKC to take on the Thunder in the final game before the All-Star break. They really need to lose this one. If they pull this out, there’s no way that they sell before the trade deadline. And the problem is is that as good as Russell Westbrook is, the Kanter-less Thunder are still pretty mediocre themselves. This is a winnable game for the Knicks. Let’s go? Knicks!

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Nuggets

The Knicks host the Nuggets tonight in a game that is very important for the tank, as the Nuggets are just ahead of the Knicks and a bunch of Nuggets are out tonight. Let’s hope that the Knicks can pull out the loss! Let’s go? Knicks!

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Clippers

Well, you certainly can’t say that the Knicks are not an interesting team to follow, at the very least. The Los Angeles Clippers come to MSG tonight as the Knicks are in the midst of some turmoil surrounding whether or not Carmelo Anthony plans on exercising his no trade clause or not. I joked the other day that Melo exercising his no trade clause is like the villain in a horror film. Until he literally does so, don’t believe it’s done. It might look like it’s done, but until it is actually done, beware! But yeah, weird game tonight. Jeff …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Lakers

NBA Game Times make absolutely no sense. Some days the Knicks play a 7, some days they play at 7:30. Is there a reason for the difference? I can’t see any. Anyhow, the Knicks host the Lakers. Normally, I’d be worried, since the Lakers are terrible, but it sounds like Phil Jackson is committed to dealing Melo, so a win against an awful team is not that big of a deal. They’ll make it up later when they start losing in droves. Let’s go? Knicks!

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Cavs

The tank is in a precarious position tonight. The Knicks host the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are in the middle of a major funk right now. Not only that, but while Kevin Love returns tonight, they will be without Kyrie Irving so, well, that’s a huge opening for the Knicks to sneak a win in at just the wrong time for the tank. Oh well, let’s at least hope Melo plays well in front of a big audience! Let’s? Go? Knicks?

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Nets

I don’t think even the most ardent supporter of the tank expects them to lose this game, as the Lin-less Nets are awwwwwwful. But hey, ya never know! Still believe in the power of the tank and it might still surprise you! Let’s go? Knicks!

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Wizards

The Knicks travel to D.C. tonight to take on the Washington Wizards in yet another one of those Eastern Conference games where the Knicks have too good of a chance at winning. Luckily, the Wizards have legitimately played well as of late, looking like an actually good team. However, the Knicks still played them very close the last time these two teams tangled, so it will likely be another close game. Hopefully the Knicks don’t pull it off, as they don’t need any sort of sign to Melo for him not to waive the NTC. Let’s go, Knicks?
