Schmeelk: There’s Still Good Reason To Let Go Of Mike Woodson

There’s no saving this season, but perhaps it is worth changing coaches just to see how some of these players respond to a new voice.

Schmeelk: Knicks Have Quit, And Pretty Soon They’ll Be Irrelevant

Why should fans even turn on MSG to watch the Knicks anymore? It’s so much more fun watching the real version of the Walking Dead on AMC.

Schmeelk: In Alternate Universe, Makers Of ‘Groundhog Day’ Would Sue Knicks

Three plaintiffs — Columbia Pictures, Bill Murray and Punxsutawney Phil himself — are suing the Knicks over copyright infringement of the film “Groundhog Day.” (This is, of course, purely satirical.)

Schmeelk: Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Root For The Knicks

With CAA pulling Steve Mills’ marionette strings, will the Knicks only be able to attract clients from that agency? The Knicks are toxic. They destroy everything they touch.

Schmeelk: No News Is Good News For The Knicks

As much as many Knicks fans were frustrated by the team’s lack of movement on Thursday to try to make a playoff run, they should see it from a different point of view.

Schmeelk: Low Probability Of Trade Might Be Good Thing For Knicks

They have veteran players underperforming, few youngsters with potential and no draft picks to trade in the near future. It’s tough to make a trade when that’s the case — which for the Knicks might actually be a good thing.

Schmeelk: Knicks Need To Plan For 2015, So They CAN’T Trade Hardaway, Jr.

All the Knicks have left is the future, and they must protect their assets that can help them when the future arrives. Hardaway, Jr. is first on that list. Dealing him would be a dire mistake.

Schmeelk: Knicks Playing The Fool In Carmelo Anthony Saga

How is it humanly possible that the Knicks have not sat down with the foundation of their franchise? How have they not asked him about the future and what kind of teammates he wants to play with?

Schmeelk: Dissecting Carmelo Anthony’s Comments On Free Agency

Anthony sounds like he’ll give the Knicks a legit shot. But there’s the possibility that he’s creating cover for himself with a scenario where he can leave New York without looking like the bad guy.

Schmeelk: For The Sake Of The Future, Knicks Should Trade Tyson Chandler

Without many valuable assets to trade, one that can still bring something valuable back in a deal is Tyson Chandler.

Schmeelk: This Weekend We Will Learn Something About The Knicks

With a thick veil of secrecy surrounding Madison Square Garden at all times, there’s no way of figuring out what the Knicks organization is actually thinking at any given moment.

Schmeelk: Knicks Waiting Until 2015 For A Point Guard Would Be Bad Idea

The Knicks need to be all in on a point guard sooner rather than later. Wait until 2015? In this case, patience might not be a virtue.

Schmeelk: Very Little Risk, But Much Potential Reward In Moving On From Woodson

I don’t think anyone honestly believes the Knicks will reach the second round of the playoffs under Woodson. Maybe it could happen under someone else, but there’s only one way to find out.

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: Potential Trade Destinations For Carmelo Anthony In The West

There aren’t a lot of teams in either conference that are real fits for the Knicks if they decide they have to trade Carmelo Anthony and start a genuine rebuild.
