Schmeelk: Knicks’ Effort Against Bucks As Unacceptable As Unacceptable Gets

It’s games like the one Monday night against Milwaukee that make Knicks fans wonder why they waste energy investing passion into this team during modest win streaks.

Schmeelk: The Knicks Are Winning — Why? We Go Inside The Numbers

Will the Knicks finally be able to sustain an increased defensive effort under Woodson, something they haven’t done for more than a year? If that’s the case, then this run might be more sustainable than people think.

Schmeelk: Knicks’ Success Starts With Keeping Smith On Bench

It’s amazing what happens when J.R. Smith doesn’t play. It’s nowhere near that simple, of course. But it was a very significant change in direction for the Knicks on Friday night.

Schmeelk: Knicks Better Hope Woodson Learned Something On Texas Trip

New York’s coach has to decide whether it’s more important to win basketball games or give playing time to the players with the biggest contracts. The decision is really that simple.

Schmeelk: Time For Knicks To Face Hard Truth And Trade Carmelo Anthony

This group of players has run its course, as has the Carmelo Anthony era. The trade for Melo was a failure. The idea of building around him hasn’t worked. It’s time to accept it, cut losses and move on.

Schmeelk: Chandler’s Return Doesn’t Solve Knicks’ Biggest Problem

To say the Knicks’ guards have been bad this year would be an understatement. To call them the worst collection of guards in the NBA would be accurate. It’s that horrid.

Schmeelk: Kyle Lowry Is A Good Fit For Knicks — But At What Cost?

Here’s the issue: Lowry is a free agent after this season. If the Knicks want to re-sign him long-term it will probably cost them around eight million dollars a season, give or take. That type of contract will make it nearly impossible for the Knicks to bring in another max player in the 2015 offseason if Carmelo Anthony signs a max extension this summer.

Schmeelk: Beware The Heavy Hand Of Knicks Owner James Dolan

The Knicks are playing not only against their opponents, but a timer that will hit zero at a time of Dolan’s choosing. When it does, all New York fans will feel the pain.
