J.R. Smith is far from the perfect player, but the Knicks have no choice but to sign him. If J.R. wants to bolt to a bad team for more money, he can.
The Knicks are often too quick to trade away first round picks, since that is the best way for a team to acquire cheap assets. Picks are one of the most valuable NBA assets.
Earlier this week, we talked about the Knicks’ needs in this year’s draft. Today we’ll take a look at their options when they select at No. 24.
The NBA Draft is just three days away, and it is perhaps the most important part for the Knicks as they head into the offseason.
I doubt it will be the case, but this series should put all those outdated and nauseating LeBron James narratives out to pasture once and for all.
There are moments every once in a while that remind you why you sit in front of a television and watch all those games, and Tuesday night was one of them.
What should really scare the Miami Heat is that Sunday night should have been a win for them. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh combined for 66 points and shot a combined 25-of-53.
Doc Rivers would be the Knicks’ best coach since Pat Riley — sorry Jeff Van Gundy, but it’s true — and that hiring would make the Jason Kidd signing look like nothing more than a PR stunt.
The Heat changed things up, and now it is time for Gregg Popovich to adjust. Is there anyone else you would want in that film room and on the practice floor figuring out how to counter those moves more than Popovich?
All in all, this should be a very exciting and competitive series. San Antonio will likely have to win two games in Miami to win the series. It’s a tall order, but if any team can win a Game 7 in Miami, it’s a veteran team like the Spurs.
On Tuesday I went over the Knicks’ financial situation for the next three years, so keep that in mind as we go through the offseason decisions that the Knicks will have to make. Here are where the pivotal points are going to be.
Big changes are not coming now. They are two years away. They do have to get better, but that will be incremental, not dramatic. The Knicks are Melo’s team, and right now, that’s a good thing.
This year, The Knicks were one of eight teams left and the second-best team in the East. It’s OK to be proud of that. It’s OK to enjoy that. I know I did.
After watching Games 3 and 4, it would be hard to make the case that the Knicks can win on Saturday night in Indiana. So why will Game 6 be different? Here’s a dose of hope…
All it will take for the Knicks is for someone to hit some shots early. Shooting can be contagious, and the Knicks have all been wearing FEMA suits the past couple of weeks.
