VIDEO: Knicks Fan’s YouTube Rant of Year (NSFW)

Forget about write-ups. If you’re a Knicks fan, or even if you’re not, just watch this. CAN’T BELIEVE I missed this. A longtime Knickerbocker backer goes off following the team’s embarrassing 41-point blowout home loss to the Boston Celtics on December 8th. Quite possibly, the best YouTube sports rant I’ve ever witnessed. This man speaks […]

Reminded that Melo just isn't among the NBA's truly elite players

Reminded that Melo just isn’t among the NBA’s truly elite players

There are some moments that bring things to light that you knew were there. Instances that provide clarity based on contrast. Last night’s Knicks-Bulls game was one of those occasions. It was a subtle reminder to any of those delusional Knicks fans (of whom there are droves) that NO, Carmelo Anthony isn’t among the NBA’s […]

Metta World Peace Rocks Subway From Queensbridge to MSG Debut

Metta World Peace Rocks Subway From Queensbridge to MSG Debut

I’ve got to admit it. Misguided or not, the signing of Metta World Peace was by far my favorite move Knicks move this offseason. Sure, he promises some occasionally unwanted entertainment (although he guarantees some high-quality comedic relief too). And, yes, he’s getting older and his health worries me. That said, it’s great to see […]

Chris Smith Makes the Knicks and Reminds Us How Ridiculous the Knicks Really Are

Chris Smith Makes the Knicks and Reminds Us How Ridiculous the Knicks Really Are

When I was a college kid pledging a fraternity, we occasionally talked about “package deals.”  It was in the context of rush. Hey, we can’t give this kid a bid unless we give this one, they’re a “package deal.” Whenever that kind of talk popped up, it got quickly squashed. It was stupid. You should […]

J.R. Smith Bought a Half-Million Dollar Armored Truck

From the NY POST: NBA star J.R. Smith spent some of the $24 million he scored in a four-year deal with the New York Knicks on a flashy new armored truck. Smith, who’s recovering after surgery on his left knee in the off-season, rolled up to Meatpacking District restaurant Catch on Thursday night in a […]

Knicks open round two with a thud

Knicks open round two with a thud

The Knicks are looking like the worst versions of themselves at exactly the wrong time. Sunday afternoon’s 102-95 loss to the Pacers at Madison Square Garden was a reminder of just how hard it’s going to be for this team, particularly in its recent games’ incarnation, to even win a game in this series let […]

Celtic veterans leave court quickly, forget their class behind

Celtic veterans leave court quickly, forget their class behind

Is a post-series handshake a common and expected part of an NBA Playoffs series? That’s a legitimate question. I won’t contend that the league is anything like the NHL, whose post-series lineup is just one of the absolutely stellar traditions that make its postseason so phenomenal. But I would contend at least a quick fist […]

Calling Iman and Raymond!

Calling Iman and Raymond!

The realistic Knicks fan enjoyed their team’s hot, early start but was under no delusions about its shortcomings and vulnerabilities. And guess what, those weaknesses are starting to show themselves. Shocking, but the Knicks are old. Old is not necessarily the problem. The sizzling start to the season had a lot to do with chemistry, […]

The Battle of the Boroughs: NY Basketball Bragging Rights Fall to Brooklyn Nets

Thanksgiving weekend has always been notorious for football match-ups, but the beginning of a great New York rivalry began last week as well. After being rescheduled due to Hurricane Sandy, the season opener between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets finally took place on Monday night at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn. As […]

You're Kidding Right? New Knick Kidd Offers Lame DUI Apology via Twitter

You’re Kidding Right? New Knick Kidd Offers Lame DUI Apology via Twitter

Just gimme a f-in break already. Twitter’s cool for a lot of reasons. I won’t go into them. One thing that sucks about it is that it gives today’s athletes another easy and lame way out of any sort of accountability. Back in the day, if you f-ed up — and needed/wanted to show some […]

The belt is back: Steve Novak re-signs with Knicks

Welcome back, Novak! The Knicks have reportedly re-signed free agent Steve Novak following a season in New York during which he led the NBA in three point shooting percentage. Novak had his best NBA season in 2011-12 averaging career highs in minutes per game (18.9), points (8.8) and rebounds (2.0). His 47% from beyond the […]

Tyson Chandler an ESPN Body Issue cover boy

Tyson Chandler an ESPN Body Issue cover boy

First off, ESPN the Magazine’s The Body Issue is just great marketing. That’s my opinion and debate for another day with any dissenters. For now, we’re just here to share that one of four athletes to be featured on various cover versions of the 2012 “Body Issue” is a familiar face for Knicks fans (note, […]
