Schmeelk: Ugh! Knicks Would’ve Been Better Off Losing To Bulls

I actually walked out of MSG on Wednesday night annoyed that New York beat Chicago. Please don’t dismiss this. There’s logic behind it. I swear. Read on!

Schmeelk: Only The Players Can Save Mike Woodson Now

Mike Woodson just had three days of practice. I hope he used them well. It might very well be the last days he will have as head coach of the Knicks to turn this thing around. But he needs help from his players.

Schmeelk: Good And Bad Both In Knicks’ Nail-Biting Opener

The Knicks showed many good things in Wednesday’s season opener. But there were also a couple of red flags that could prove to be a problem in the season’s first true test against the Bulls.

Carmelo On Charles Barkley: ‘I Don’t Listen To That Guy’

“I don’t listen to that guy, not at all,” the small forward said. “I don’t care about doubters. I really don’t, to be honest with you. The free agency, that’s not hanging over my head. I’ll deal with that in the offseason.”

Schmeelk: Bargnani, STAT May Not Play D, But They Can Sure Shoot

On the surface, Andrea Bargnani and Amar’e Stoudemire really don’t improve the Knicks’ offense all that much and certainly won’t help the defense at all. But they will definitely have value against certain teams.

Knicks Ignore Talk Of Fall, Are Determined To Build On Last Season

Finally back on top of their division, all the New York Knicks keep hearing is that they are going to fall back. Second in the Eastern Conference last season, now they’re supposedly second-best in their own city.

Schmeelk: J.R. Smith Starting Is A Disaster Waiting To Happen

With Smith and Anthony on the court together, the ball often stops, which would hurt the ultra-effective Felton/Chandler pick-and-roll. Smith also doesn’t apply the smart, heady defense that’s needed with the rest of the starting five.

Schmeelk: Breaking Down Mike Woodson’s Offense/Defense Dilemma

Woodson will have a lot of flexibility when it comes to finding the proper offense/defense balance. He can go with a dual point-guard lineup with Prigioni or start a bigger two-guard like Shumpert or Smith.
