Is the Pressure Mounting for Knicks’ Iman Shumpert?

By multiple accounts, last season could (and/or should) have been considered a failure for the Knicks. Of course, there was the securing of the second seed in the Eastern Conference, their first Atlantic Division title in over two decades, and their first playoff series victory in a decade as well. These are positive things, but […]

Why Knicks Should Keep Chris Douglas-Roberts On Board

Chris Douglas-Roberts, a second round NBA Draft pick in 2008, has a career average of 7.5 points through 162 contests on 44% shooting from the field. That's not so bad. But for whatever reason, CDR has failed to stick in the NBA. He fell out of favor with Coach Scott Skiles while playing for the […]

Class Clown: Metta World Peace Previews What’s To Come

"Shakeup? What shakeup?" That was Metta World Peace's (not so) innocent response when asked about the Knicks' front office switch during media day on Monday. It was certainly one way to dodge such a line of questioning, but World Peace's fun with us reporters didn't simply end there.  We learned that the only thing World […]

Stormy Weather Ahead for the Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire

As Knicks' Media Day began on Monday, one of the first subjects Coach Mike Woodson addressed was the health and status of Amar'e Stoudemire, who underwent what was described as yet another "minor procedure" on his knee this past July. After being limited to 29 games in a bench role last season, it was anyone's […]

Bernard King Working For a Sports Agency

With the new basketball season just weeks away and training camp about to begin, the Knicks are set to embark on what they hope will be a promising year. All reported twenty players set to join New York in camp will have the opportunity to strut their stuff, prove themselves, while at the same time, […]

More On Knicks’ Decision To Hire Steve Mills

The discussion has been ongoing, as the speculation, suggestions, assertions, etc. keep coming. Everyone and anyone has worked feverishly since Thursday while attempting to explain and/or justify the Knicks replacing Glen Grunwald as General Manager with Steve Mills.  With the Knicks set not to comment and/or formally introduce Mills until Media Day on Monday morning, […]

The Steve Mills/Allan Houston For Knicks General Manager Debate

The Knicks announced on Thursday that former MSG President Steve Mills has replaced Glen Grunwald as the team's General Manager. Given the success that Grunwald has had over the course of his Knickerbocker tenure (of course, that same success will always be considered a collective effort tied to Donnie Walsh as well), it's somewhat surprising […]

Knicks To Replace Glen Grunwald With Steve Mills

According to Marc Stein and my pal Ian Begley over at ESPN New York, the Knicks have replaced General Manager Glen Grunwald with former MSG President Steve Mills. Wow. Since taking over for Donnie Walsh and attempting to finish what the former started, Grunwald has done a very good job. He's reeled in some very impressive […]

Knicks Taking a Different Approach This Season

Unless one is in a rebuilding stage, an NBA team's obvious goal to begin each and every season is winning the NBA title. As training camp approaches, however, it's clear the Knicks are taking a different approach to doing so. The mentality as to how to get there and put themselves in the best position […]

Reaction To the Knicks Signing Josh Powell For Training Camp

Why not DeSagana Diop? Seriously, that's my reaction to the Knicks signing Josh Powell to a training camp contract. As my buddy Seth Rosenthal says, Josh Powell is Josh Powell. There isn't anything particularly horrible about Powell, but there isn't particularly anything too special about him, either. As far as a potential fourteenth or fifteenth […]

Most Heartbreaking Moment for Knicks Last Season?

It may not be "Throwback Thursday," but today could certainly be a "Flashback Friday." Forward James Johnson, who spent last season with Sacramento Kings, has reportedly agreed to join the Atlanta Hawks. He may not be a star or even a stud by any means, but the Knicks can't be happy about his move to […]
