2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ Raptors

The Knicks head to…TAMPA to play the Toronto Raptors tonight, as Canada still won’t let sports teams play in the country, so the Raptors are playing their home games in Tampa. Amusingly, Kevin Knox is from Tampa, so he gets to play at his hometown. Larry Brown would start him over Barrett. Burks and Quickley […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ Cavaliers

After surprisingly kicking the Bucks’ ass the other night, the Knicks head to Cleveland to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers, who have started the season a surprising 3-0. We all thought that the Knicks would be 1-3 after tonight, but I think 1-3 would now be a disappointment. A .500 record through four games would […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Bucks

The Knicks host the really good Milwaukee Bucks tonight at the Garden, so it is very likely that the Knicks will be 0-3 after tonight, but hey, maybe they’ll shock the world! Dennis Smith Jr. has a quad issue, so he’s out tonight. He joins Quickley (who’s day to day) and Toppin (who is out […]

2020-21 HOME OPENER Thread: Knicks vs. 76ers

As noted on Twitter earlier today, the last time that the Knicks beat the Sixers, it was the infamous Ndour game that dropped the Knicks in the lottery to the point where they got Frank instead of some of the other guys. Let’s see if the Knicks can’t get the bad taste of that win […]

NY Post: The Knicks’ biggest issue is rearing its ugly head again

From Zach Braziller: The star of the Knicks’ preseason is already hurt. Two former lottery picks at the same position developed splinters on the first night. And their journeyman starter was unimpressive. Point guard remains inarguably the Knicks’ No. 1 issue. Immanuel Quickley, the first-round pick out of Kentucky who was already becoming a fan […]

2020-21 SEASON OPENER Thread: Knicks @ Pacers

I was waiting for the Pacers to announce their starting lineup. Their new coach is even cagier than Thibs. The Knicks open the season in Indiana, a team that finished with the #4 seed last year, despite playing without possibly their best player in the bubble. The Knicks’ starting lineup is: Elfrid Payton Reggie Bull-LOCK […]

The “How Many Wins Will The Knicks Have In 2020-21?” Prediction Thread

Ah, the truest sign that time is actually passing, we have another “How Many Wins Will the Knicks have?” prediction thread, a Knickerblogger tradition as valued as never being willing to kick anything to the curb or wondering whether the true responsibility for a player making a bad play is held by the player who […]

NY Post: Injury is derailing Austin Rivers’ grand Knicks plans

From Zach Braziller: Austin Rivers talked a big game about playing for his father’s former team, saying he wanted to be part of something special and make the franchise “great again.” Unfortunately for the combo guard, he has so far been very limited in that endeavor, and seems likely to miss the early part of […]

NY Post: RJ Barrett making it look ‘easy’ in promising Knicks start

From Marc Berman: After working with his trainer in Southern California, Barrett said he’s tinkered with shot technique, moving his right hand more to the side of the ball to get a more fluid release. “I was working with Drew Hanlen over the summer, we changed it up a little bit, tweaked a couple of […]

NY Post: Mitchell Robinson looked ‘terrific’ as Knicks starter

From Peter Botte: Nerlens Noel, part of the Knicks’ ever-expanding Kentucky connection, started the first two preseason games at center before sitting out the next two with a sore left knee. Mitchell Robinson said earlier in camp that he doesn’t mind coming off the bench, but the third-year big man moved into the starting lineup […]
