Game Preview & Thread: Knicks @ Wolves

Don’t look now, but the Knicks are streaking! Granted, it’s a seven game losing streak, but that’s beside the point. The Knicks are trending down while their opponent tonight, the Minnesota Timberwolves, are trending up. To get a better idea of what to expect out of this Wolves team I brought in William Bohl of A Wolf Among Wolves and Zach Harper of CBSSports. Enjoy! The Wolves are back over .500 and have won six of their last seven games coming into tonight’s game. What’s clicked for this team recently? Are they finally becoming the team we thought they’d be …continue reading

Game Preview & Thread: Mavericks at Knicks

The Knicks have lost five of their last six games, so things are pretty dreary at the opponent. To make the postseason the Knicks have to go on a major run to end the season, so perhaps they’ll get back to winning tonight as they host the Dallas Mavericks.(LOL). To get a better idea of what the Knicks are up against tonight I brought in Kirk Henderson of Mavs Outsider and Tim Cato of Mavs Moneyball. Enjoy!

Game Preview & Thread: Knicks at Grizzlies

The Knicks are in Memphis tonight to take on a revitalized Grizzlies team at 8:00 EST. To help get everyone’s mind off Knicks trade rumors and stop fiddling with ESPN’s Trade Machine I brought in Jonathan May of 3 Shades Of Blue and Chris Faulkner of Grizzly Bear Blues to discuss tonight’s game. Enjoy! The Grizzlies host the Knicks tonight winners of their last two games before the All-Star break. In January, the team really got back on track winning 11-of-12 at one point.

How the Knicks should approach this year’s NBA Trade Deadline

There is no quick-fix solution when it comes to the New York Knicks. Some teams are fortunate enough to just have a roster problem, or a coaching problem, or even just an inept front office. Some teams have more than one of these problems. The Knicks have all three. For a lot of fans, the NBA Trade Deadline is a signal of hope. — a chance at moving an albatross contract or two, receiving draft picks, obtaining a star, etc. For Knicks’ fans, especially this year, it’s a time that requires one to check his or her medicine cabinet to …continue reading
