Spare parts effect the total package

The future of the New York Knicks hinges on reversing this trend of getting one dimensional players and instead starting a new trend of getting solid all-around basketball players, so that a sense of team identity and trust can finally be developed between the players.

Often times during the past four years, the Knicks […]

Draft day seems too far away

We’ve still got a full month to wait before we learn who the Knicks end up taking in the 2008 NBA draft.

Unless we trade for another pick, the pre-draft camp in Orlando isn’t going to be of much weight in the decision making process for the Knicks, because the projected lottery picks often […]

What do you do at 6?

Sixth isn’t too bad. Obviously first or second would have been instant gratification for our Knicks, but the odds were best that we would get the sixth, and that’s what we ended up getting.

A lot can happen leading up to the sixth draft pick a month from now. We could trade up […]

Lottery time–all it takes is one!


Tonight we find out where exactly the New York Knicks will pick in the 2008 NBA draft lottery this June. Again, we’ll be somewhere from 1-3 or 5-8, depending on the luck of the draw.

Let’s go Knicks!

Time to bring back some basketball magic to […]

More lottery stuff

From Wikipedia: “After the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd picks are determined, the 4th-14th picks are assigned to teams based on weakness of record.”

Now for some hypothetical thinking aloud (online):

If I understand this correctly, lets say that none of the three teams with the worst records finishes with the top three picks (very unlikely, […]

One of the great places of Manhattan, if not the world

For all of you in the NYC area this weekend who would like a chance to meet a living Knick legend, my sources have informed me that NBA great Earl “The Pearl” Monroe will be doing an autograph session at J&R this Saturday at 1:30pm.

You are invited…



So, remember that unnecessary three-game win streak at the tail end of our 23-win season?

The Knicks would have tied Seattle’s 20-win record had they lost those three relatively meaningless games.

The 2008 lottery is scheduled for one week from today, on May 20, 2008 in Secaucus, New Jersey. The results are to be revealed on ESPN at 8:00-8:30 EDT. Here are the odds of winning it all.

(Remember, the […]

The future is now for the New York Knicks

Not too much news to discuss when it comes to our favorite basketball team right about now.

Walsh has already met with both Avery Johnson and Mike D’Antoni, so only a few other remaining candidates have yet to get a sit-down with the new president of basketball operations.

What is apparent is this: much of […]

Scratch Rick Carlisle off the list

According to Peter Vescey of the New York Post, Rick Carlisle will soon be named head coach of the Dallas Mavericks. What is interesting to note is that Carlisle, according to Vescey, met with the Knicks on Wednesday prior to the handshake deal with the Mavs.

Did Walsh in so many words tell Carlisle that […]

Who’s the man for the job?

The New York Knicks will more than likely announce a new head coach prior to the NBA draft in June, and now that teams are getting knocked out of the box in the first round, certain coaches that were previously unavailable are now in the midst of becoming free agents. Who will be next to […]
