Extreme Home Makeover

May 25, 2010

 

Will changes to The Garden entice free aents?

Madison Square Garden, the world’s most famous arena, will be receiving some much-needed renovations in the upcoming months.  The home of the New York Knicks, Rangers, and St. John’s basketball will go through many phases of improving what is already the mecca of sports across the country.  Amongst the highlighted features will be two “Sky Bridges” that will hang five stories above the playing surface.

Will one come or none at all?

Truth be told, the only superstars we may have next season might be Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler. At least two players with star potential, well maybe Danilo.

Going to the Knicks??..HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

 

All in all the Knicks got under the cap for July 1st. Will it be enough to land a marquee player, and get this once respectable franchise out of the mud? 

Time will tell and so far no good.

“New York is where I was wanted, where I’m supposed to be.”

The Face of Change

My title for this article is verbatim from the Knicks starting point guard Toney Douglas, who said that after he was reminded that Jrue Holiday, the Sixers starting rookie point guard was picked ahead of him in last years draft. The Knicks have won a surprising two games in a row on the road after the former Seminole was promoted to the starting point guard position.

Douglas dazzles to earn Starting PG spot

March 15, 2010

Point GAWWWDD!!

I think Toney Douglas is beginning to show his versatility as a point guard. His stat line from Saturdays win against the Mavericks, 21 points, 8 assists, and zero turnovers.  He also set the tone on the defensive end and at times made Jason Kidd finally look like Jason Old. He is also slated to start tonight when the Knicks visit the Sixers, and quite possibly may be the starter for the remainder of the season.

Further Evidence that FA’s want nothing to do with the Knicks

March 12, 2010

Don't Believe the Hype

After another losing season, the Knicks hope that a premier free agent will be arriving on July 1st is beginning to fade. With Lebron James looking to be firmly stuck in Cleveland and Dwayne Wade possibly returning to Chicago to join Derrick Rose, the Knicks have begun to set their sights on second tier free agents like Joe Johnson.

A familiar look on Coach Mike's face

Mike D’antoni has yet to prove to me that he is a capable coach. What he has proved to me however is that he is an egotistical maniac who has yet to bring out the best in his players. I mean seriously, why is this guy so heralded? Is it because of back to back 60+ wins in Phoenix?

Will the Knicks trade Jared Jeffries??

January 6, 2010

You know I bleed blue...

It was only a couple of months ago when me and our disappearing contributor Chauncey Black were shitting on Indiana native Jared Jeffries on his abysmal play. I clearly remember yelling over the phone, “why the hell is this guy shooting three-point shots when he cant’ hit a damn 8 footer?”

You can’t stop Krpto-Nate

January 6, 2010

Step inside the booth and loosen up the tie

When Nate Robinson was benched for a month and some change, I felt like the only Knick fan that wanted him back in the rotation. Sure the Knicks were winning and had their best month since 2004, but I thought that Nate was an integral part of the current Knick team and should have played regardless.

Knicks 420 Portland for 3rd Straight Win

Al Harrington drives to the basket

NEW YORK- Jared Jeffries twice stepped in to draw charges. Chris Duhon dived on the floor to come up with a loose ball, starting a play that ended with Gallinari finding Al Harrington alone under the basket for a dunk, and the New York Knickerbockers won for the fourth time in five games.

The Garden crowd rose at the fourth quarter buzzer and applauded the Knicks for their teamwork, hustle and most importantly strong defensive play against the injury ridden Portland Trailblazers. The Blazers who recently lost Greg Oden to season ending knee surgery came into New York undefeated against the Knicks in the past five games.
