Linsanity Revisited: A Review of the Jeremy Lin Movie

First there was Shawne Williams. Then Jeremy Lin came along, further setting the stage for the likes of Chris Copeland, and this season, perhaps a guard like Toure Murry. There's no doubt that everyone (especially the basketball fans of the Big Apple) can appreciate and favor the underdog story. Players going through such journeys resonate […]

Why Toure Murry Can Still Make the Knicks’ Roster

Perhaps dating back to Summer League (and obviously continuing throughout training camp and the preseason), guard Toure Murry has been displaying flashes of incredibly impressive play. With a couple of roster spots on the Knicks up for grabs, the NBA D-League champion is certainly doing his part to prove he deserves one. Though the Knicks […]

There’s More to Worry About Than Amar’e Stoudemire

This weekend, the Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire was cleared for contact drills. Perhaps full-court scrimmaging will be next, as the big man's hope is be ready to go by the team's season opener. Such a progression is positive, regardless of how close or how far Stoudemire truly is to returning. The fact that he's moving forward […]

Some Injury Updates on Knicks’ Key Players

During the Knicks' preseason victory over the Wizards on Thursday night, the respective sprained elbows suffered by both Iman Shumpert and Pablo Prigioni seemingly overshadowed and clouded any positive developments pertaining to some of the team's training camp invitees.  That said, luckily New York has been yet to receive any further bad news pertaining to […]

Highs & Lows in Knicks’ Latest Preseason Win

With talk about his impending 2014 free agency at an all-time high, Carmelo Anthony returned home to Baltimore to lead the Knicks up against the Wizards. The 22 points Anthony poured in to ensure his team went home with a 98-89 victory was among the highs of such a contest. The forward played the most […]

Carmelo Anthony Brings Free Agency Talk Upon Himself

At his team's media day last month, Knicks' superstar Carmelo Anthony asserted that he didn't want to answer any questions, let alone think, about his impending free agency. "When that time comes, I'll deal with that," Anthony said. "I'm not going to go through the season thinking about my contract. I'm actually under contract right […]

Why It’s Easy to Like Knicks’ General Manager Steve Mills

The Knicks' demotion/firing/re-assignment of Glen Grunwald was unfortunate, to say the least. Having finished third in last season's "Executive of the Year" voting, it's easy to say Grunwald did a solid job over the course of his tenure as General Manager. Taking over for Donnie Walsh, Grunwald picked up right where the former left off […]

Should the Knicks Start Metta World Peace?

There's already an early love fest between Carmelo Anthony and Andrea Bargnani. Such an embrace by Anthony shouldn't necessarily come as a surprise, however. In addition to providing the Knicks with a more reliable number two scorer, Bargnani's presence also allows the Knicks' star to shift back over to the three at small forward. There's […]

Was Chris Copeland One of a Kind?

Given their already existent payroll and whatnot, the Knicks' core group is already set. Any and all surprise contributors will emerge within the coming weeks from the handful of training camp invitees currently fighting to prove their worth.  Clearly, New York has had success experimenting with similar options in recent seasons. Everyone knows Jeremy Lin […]

What Else Does Ike Diogu Have to Do to Secure His Spot?

Without the likes of Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Metta World Peace, Beno Udrih, and Kenyon Martin (and not to mention, the rehabbing Amar'e Stoudemire and J.R. Smith), the Celtics took advantage of the Knicks on Saturday. They separated themselves late in the game, and defeated New York by a score of 111-81. That's […]

Knicks Lose to Raptors But Continue Exploring Options

In their preseason opener against the Celtics on Wednesday, the Knicks held on in the final seconds for what proved to be an exciting victory. The same couldn't be said for New York on Friday night against the Raptors, as the third and fourth stringers entered the game for the Knicks with time expiring. Needless […]

Jumping on the Andrea Bargnani Bandwagon

I like Carmelo Anthony at the power forward position. I really do. He thrived there all throughout last season, and the small lineup for the Knicks proved to be very successful. I also liked the Andrea Bargnani to New York trade this past summer. Say what you will or what you want, but based on […]

Plenty to Be Excited About in Knicks’ Preseason Win

The Knicks started their (pre)season off against the team that was most recently at New York's wrath.  Albeit, with the subtractions of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, etc., this year's Celtics team is and will be a very different looking squad. Still, a local rivalry between the two teams will still remain. It's quite easy to […]

Should There Be Concern Surrounding Kenyon Martin?

Last season, the Knicks saw Jason Kidd get played into the ground due to increased playing time and a more exhausting role. Clearly benefitting from his impact on the court, New York suffered that much more when he was tired. Kidd wasn't the only veteran that got exhausted over the course of the season. The […]
