2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Heat

The Knicks try to make it five in a row against a Miami Heat team that, for some reason, are miffed at the attention that Kristaps Porzingis is getting. I really don’t get it. Just shut up and play the game, Miami. Tonight would be a huge win, as not only would it be five in a row, but it would also be against a very good Miami team that is playing with a full roster, so this would be quite a statement victory. Hopefully Porzingis can outdo himself from the amazing game he had in Houston, just to hush …continue reading

Who in the world is Zemgus Girgensons?

Who in the world is Zemgus Girgensons? If you know the answer to that question, you’re either Latvian, a Buffalo Sabres fan, or play fantasy hockey.

In his first six games, the Spaniard shot like a stormtrooper and defended… pretty much the way he normally does. But he’s beginning to play like a real NBA point guard again, and perhaps beginning to quell talk that he would lose his starting spot to Langston Galloway or Jerian Grant. Since playing the Lakers—a panacea for many ailing players these days—Calderon has …continue reading

Knicks Morning News (2015.11.22)

[New York Post] Kristaps Porzingis already could be Knicks’ franchise-turning building block (Sun, 22 Nov 2015 01:05:38 -0500) HOUSTON — There are times when you can see Kristaps Porzingis still has a lot of work to do on his game.
