What’s Next for the Knicks Now and Beyond?

Our old friend, Chris Herring, is at now, and he has a nice piece up about the Knicks that, well, I dunno, man, I just needed something for a new thread since the Knicks don’t play again until Sunday. What’s the next step for the formidable Knicks, both now and beyond this year? For […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Future Knick Zach LaVine’s Team

The Knicks host the LaVine-less Bulls in what has got to be a must-win (or should I say, they obviously should win, so a loss would be devastating) game ahead of some tougher future games. The Eastern Conference is somehow actually still bunched together even after the Knicks’ awesome nine-game winning streak, so they need […]

NY Post: Chris Paul delivers dagger in bitter end to Knicks’ winning streak

From Marc Berman: After losing in Brooklyn on Sunday, Suns star Devin Booker vowed to finish his team’s five-game Eastern swing with a victory at the World’s Most Famous Arena. “That’s last thing we said in the locker room,’’ Booker said. “We’ll be ready for [Monday].’’ And so they were. The Knicks have a lot […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Future Knick Chris Paul’s Team

On his breakout album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan released the song, “I Shall Be Free,” which was a version of an old Leadbelly song that Dylan’s idol, Woody Guthrie, had covered, but basically, it’s just a rambling satirical talking blues song. Even this early in his career (this was 1962), Dylan was already […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Future Knick Kyle Lowry’s Team

Here’s an interesting piece of trivia for you. Can you name the first Beatle to have a solo #1 hit on the Billboard Top 100 and the last Beatle to have a solo #1 hit on the Billboard Top 100? It’s the same guy, as George Harrison beat his more famous bandmates to the punch […]

The Athletic: Knicks Sign Norvel Pelle to a Multiyear Deal

From Shams: The New York Knicks are signing center Norvel Pelle to a multiyear deal, sources tell @TheAthletic. His second 10-day deal ended today. Pelle finds home after stops in Brooklyn and Sacramento this season. Now, this is the sort of thing you should do with your cap room midseason. I’m sure it’s non-guaranteed. Good […]

NY Post: Streaking Knicks clip Hawks to move into fourth in East

From Marc Berman: It was a Knicks-Hawks battle for the fourth seed and home-court advantage, and it became a night of bloody carnage and overtime at the frenzied Garden. Julius Randle scored 40 points and the Knicks (33-27) won their eighth straight game, posting a 137-127 victory Wednesday night before a wild crowd of 2,000 […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Future Knick…uhmm…Kevin Huerter (?)’s Team

I want to keep the future Knick bit going, but I got nothing. Anyhow, the Knicks host the Atlanta Hawks in a big game that could decide which of these teams is the #4 seed, so winning their eighth in a row tonight would be nice! Let’s go get #8, Knick!

NY Post: Knicks erupt in every way for seventh straight win

From Marc Berman: Seven more assists from Julius Randle. Eleven more 3-pointers combined from backcourt men RJ Barrett and Reggie Bullock. Countless more hustle pays by the nasty center tandem of Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson. And another second-half defensive gem by the Knicks, holding the Hornets to 31 points. It all rolled out to […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Future Knick Terry Rozier’s Team

Big game tonight as the Knicks go for their seventh win in a row against a banged-up Hornets team. Ball is coming back soon, so it is good to get them now. Let’s go get that #4 seed, Knicks!
