2019-20 Game Thread: Knicks @ Magic

The Knicks travel to Orlando to take on a fairly mediocre Magic team that did manage to make the playoffs last season (and who won just one less game against the Toronto Raptors in the playoffs as the Golden State Warriors). In fact, they actually won their division last season, which is kind of hilarious, […]

2019-20 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Bulls

Somehow, the Knicks haven’t started a season 0-4 since Larry Brown was the coach and they won 23 games on route to watching the Chicago Bulls draft LaMarcus Aldridge with the Knicks’ first round pick (thank goodness the Bulls then moronically traded Aldridge for Tyrus Thomas. It would have been way too hard to watch […]

NY Post: RJ Barrett already showing he’s ‘stud’ Knicks hoped for

Marc Berman is as pumped up about RJ Barrett as us! RJ Barrett has done everything but win in his first three NBA games. After a strong preseason, Barrett has been even better in the regular season because he’s even hitting his 3-point shots — not just muscling to the hoop with great body control […]

2019-20 Game Thread: Knicks vs. A Team That Willingly Signed Enes Kanter to Start For Them – THE HOME OPENER!

The Knicks host the Boston Celtics in their 2019-20 home opener. Sadly, the much-maligned Enes Kanter will not be playing tonight due to a nagging injury, and at this precise moment, I’m not even sure who WILL be starting for the Celtics at center, as Kanter’s backup, Daniel Theis, also got banged up in the […]

2019-20 Game Thread: Knicks @ the Brooklyn Kyries

It’s the second game of the season and Fizdale’s starting lineup actually makes sense! Elfrid Payton will start at the point alongside RJ Barrett, with Marcus Morris and Julius Randle paired with Mitchell Robinson returning from an injury to take the starting center spot. I knew Fizdale couldn’t be so dumb as to start Portis […]

2019-20 Game Thread: Knicks @ Spurs – THE SEASON BEGINS!

So, the Knicks held off on naming their starting lineup for tonight’s game until practically right before game time and…well…it was a doozy. To quote bobneptune from this morning, when the rumor was that they were going to start Alonzo Trier in the backcourt with RJ Barrett and also start Bobby Portis at center, he […]

NY Post: Knicks decide contract fate of Frank Ntilikina, Dennis Smith Jr.

I figured we should get up a thread for this relatively big news. From Marc Berman: The Knicks on Monday picked up the fourth-year options on point guards Frank Ntilikina ($6.3 million) and Dennis Smith Jr. ($5.6 million) for the 2020-21 season. They also picked up the third-year 2020-21 option on Kevin Knox. The Post […]

The “How Many Wins Will The Knicks Win In 2019-20?” Prediction Thread

Okay folks, it’s that time of year again! How many wins do you think that the Knicks will win this season? I’m going to stick with my go-to answer of “Whatever the worst amount of wins would be,” so I’m going with 36. Not enough to make the playoffs, but too much to trade any […]

Knicks vs. Pelicans, Final Preseason Game

The Zion-less Pelicans come to New York for the final preseason game. The problem I’m having with the preseason is that I don’t even know if the guys they’re playing in the preseason matter one way or the other. So what does any of it really matter? Don’t get me wrong, if you’ve been here […]

SNY.com: Sources: There’s been early grumbling among some Knicks about role with the team

Ian Begley with some tea: Fizdale cautioned not too overvalue his starting lineup on opening night. He will tweak minutes and roles based on performance. “(Lineups) are not set in stone just because we’re getting out of preseason,” the coach said. “That thing can always be a revolving door because these guys are so competitive.
