39 Year Old Kurt Thomas Coveted By Knicks

According to sources, the Knicks want to reacquire Kurt.  It is unclear if Thomas will still be in his late 30’s by the time the NBA lockout has come and gone.

The latest on the lockout is that it could last the entire NBA season.  What happens to season ticket subscribers in that case?

Lookout–it’s the lockout!

You can thank the union for the lockout is seven times more frequent than Halley’s Comet, which is every 75 or so years.

Ken Berger has the full scoop on the link to the right of this page.  Reading about the lockout is more confusing than an Escher print.  I would prefer not to.


This year’s Nostradamus Award goes to…

Starks4ThreeYes, for calling the pick that had all draft experts scratching their head like it was Renaldo Balkman back in 2006.

What seemed like days before the draft (actually it was about 9 hours), Mr. Starks4ThreeYes had this to say “iman shumpert could be a great combination of offense and defense, with great size […]

Iman Shumpert, 2011 New York Knick

A 6’5″ defensive specialist, with tremendous lateral quickness, 6’10” wingspan and a 42″ vert. He brings the ball up for Georgia Tech, and on the other side of the floor he can guard the 1, 2 or 3 position.

With the 17th pick in the 2011 NBA draft, Donnie Walsh picks…

Knick Beat Writer Steve Adamek Parts Ways with The Bergen Record

I believe he covered the knicks for over 10 years.  He was was always worlds better than tabloid Knicks writers Frank Isola or Marc Berman.

Mr. Adamek’s Knick insights will be missed. He is now a freelance writer, so we’ll be reading him again.

It is now up to Howard Beck and Alan Hahn to […]

Draft Update

I can’t keep up with all the names I didn’t watch last year in the NCAA, thankfully hoopsworld has a nice article on who they think will be around by the time the Knicks pick at 17. I’ve read so much hype today on the Knicks I even read one piece that predicted the Knicks […]

Knicks trying to trade for Omri Casspi

The name being thrown around is Toney Douglas plus $3 million. Casspi is the only Israeli-born player in the NBA. Amar’e Stoudemire learned a few years ago he is part Jewish, and has embraced it getting a Star of David tattoo, visiting the holy land and starting a twitter account called Amareisreal. The only time […]

How many did Stoudemire get on the season?

Toney Douglas for Jonny Flynn?

There are discussions of such a trade, according to Frank the Tank Isola.

I think I’d rather have Rubio, but I would welcome Flynn, assuming he is healthy.  Then again Douglas may have a breakout year now that he is supposedly healthy.

If Douglas and Fields are both traded, assume that Isiah Thomas is back […]
