Talking Knicks Basketball on Knickswag Podcast

Late Friday night, I jumped on the "Knicks at Nite' podcast with my pal Sean Aquino. Talking for nearly a full hour, we touched on a bevy of different Knickerbocker topics. From pondering just how productive the Knicks' offseason was, to addressing the ramifications of J.R. Smith's recent suspension on the upcoming season, Sean and […]

When Did J.R. Smith Fail His Drug Tests?

J.R. Smith is rehabbing from a recent surgery, but was expecting to be good to go by the start of the season. Instead, he'll start the year off by serving a five-game suspension for violating the NBA's drug policy. As fate would have it, the five-game ban is actually the consequence for a player failing […]

Are the Knicks Still Interested in Hamed Haddadi?

This week, the Knicks made it official: both Chris Smith and Toure Murry, who spent NBA Summer League with New York, will have opportunities during training camp to fight for spots on the roster for the upcoming season. That said, both players are guards, and the fact that the Knicks are pretty strong in the […]

Knicks Staying Entertained This Offseason

Though many of the Knicks' players have begun hitting the hardwood together at the team's training facility this month, that doesn't mean a few of them can't also still enjoy what's left of the NBA offseason, as well. Playing and staying in New York City often presents players with some fun options for a night out, […]

Reacting to Bernard King’s Hall of Fame Induction

An ever so strong, overwhelming, and assertive presence offensively, Bernard King is truly one of the best scorers to ever play the game of basketball and hit the NBA hardwood. Not many have been able to do it quite like he did. For that, King deserves the honor he achieved this year of being inducted […]

Some Knicks Training Camp Updates

Though the Knicks worked feverishly this offseason to fill out their roster in time for training camp, the likes of Jeremy Tyler, CJ Leslie, and most recently, Chris Smith, have all only been given partially and/or non-guaranteed contracts heading into the fall. New York's roster is by no means set in stone, as evidenced by […]

Knicks & Nets Rivalry Heating Up

Though the Nets plummeted this past postseason with a first round exit, they were still a team that won 50 games during the regular season. Such success is often difficult to duplicate, let alone improve upon. And that's why doing so will likely be a tall order for first-year head coach Jason Kidd to handle. […]

Has Chris Smith Been Invited To Knicks’ Training Camp Already?

The Knicks announced on Thursday that training camp for the 2013-14 season will take place the first week of October in good ole' Tarrytown. With that announcement also comes a message from a certain player perhaps alluding to the fact that he's ready to kick things off. We've been asserting for months that Chris Smith […]

The Importance of a Fifteenth Man on Knicks’ Roster

NBA training camp is all but just five weeks away. Looking back at the summer the Knicks had, one can honestly say the team made improvements. Aside from even getting a bit younger, to boot, Glen Grunwald and company managed to reel in a handful of notable and talented players. Not worried too much about […]

What Tracy McGrady’s Big Apple Stint Meant For the Knicks

Upon announcing his retirement from the NBA on Monday, Tracy McGrady has put an end to a career in The Association that, at the very least, warrants worthy consideration for a spot in the Hall of Fame. Seven all-star appearances (and another one in China's CBA in 2013, to boot), seven "All-NBA" selections, two NBA […]

Iman Shumpert Talks About FLOTUS Song And Rihanna

Whether they're choosing to stay local in the Big Apple or opting to tour the world this summer, it's safe to say a handful of the Knicks are having themselves pretty busy offseasons. On Iman Shumpert's to-do list was not only NBA Summer League and a trip with Danny Green and other league officials to […]
