Lee & Thomas Providing the Impetus

5 Thoughts on the Win: 1. As the Knicks dribbled out the shot clock on their final possession and the crowd stood to cheer the win, Walt “Clyde” Frazier lamented missing by one point a pizza discount promotion for those in attendance. The Knicks did not get to the 100-point mark for a second straight […]

Knicks’ Prolific Comeback Makes History

KNICKS 108, RAPTORS 100 1. If this is what a rebuild looks like, why didn’t we do this sooner? Perhaps the most statistically prolific quarters in the franchise’s seven-decade history was the highlight of a euphoric Thanksgiving Eve win at The Garden, where the crowd seems to be enjoying these weekly doses of catharsis. Last […]

A Tough Go In Orlando Without KP

MAGIC 112, KNICKS 99 1. If there are no such thing as moral victories, are there at least such things as schedule losses? This one was a tough placement by the NBA schedule computer. A third game in four nights, the second of a back-to-back coming off a three-hour flight against a team that had […]

Resilient Knicks Keep on Rolling

KNICKS 118, HORNETS 113 1. Before we even get to the historical hysteria we’ve just witnessed on consecutive nights at The Garden, I’m compelled to share with you a tweet I received during the third quarter when, once again, things looked bleak but the Knicks were, at the very least, still scrapping and clawing. No […]

5 Thoughts on Knicks-Suns

KNICKS 120, SUNS 107 1. The green room at the MSG Network studios during Knicks games is an interesting place. Bill Pidto follows the rotation closely and will lose his mind if he doesn’t like the lineup on the floor. Al Trautwig generally watches quietly while he prepares for the post game, but will be […]

5 Thoughts on Knicks-Celtics

CELTICS 110, KNICKS 89 1. The strangest statistic on the boxscore for this game was 12 three-point attempts by the Knicks in the entire game. Just 12? What is this, 1985? Seriously, that one is hard to explain. Even in the early days of the three-point shot — pre-Bomb Squad days and well before Seven […]

KP Feeling Good About What’s Ahead

The first thing you noticed was the quiet. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t a pall over the events at Knicks Media Day on Monday at the MSG Training Center. There were smiles and conversations. There was a collective good mood and the usual giddiness that comes with the start of a new season. But […]

What’s Next as Knicks Go In New Direction?

The record speaks for itself. The 80-166 mark in three full seasons as Knicks President, the three consecutive years without a playoff berth, the three coaches in three seasons, essentially three different variations of rosters and, of course, the one constant: The Triangle. After all of that, we woke up to the news yesterday that […]

Franchise Player Waiting for the Knicks in the Draft?

You want to talk conspiracy theories? The Knicks won the infamous “Frozen Envelope” draft lottery of 1985, which ensured college superstar Patrick Ewing would land in the biggest media market after the NBA had other critical markets such as Boston (Larry Bird), Los Angeles (Magic Johnson), Chicago (Michael Jordan) Detroit (Isiah Thomas) and Philadelphia (Charles […]
