Schmeelk: Ray Felton Is As Important To Knicks As Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

The old adage turned out to be true: You never know what you truly have until you lose it. Welcome back, Raymond Felton.

Schmeelk: Knicks Leave America Looking For Plenty Of Answers

If I went in-depth on all of the Knicks’ problems you’d be looking at a 10-page dissertation. The list is that long. But the Knicks have only one game in seven days, and this is valuable time that should be used to get things right.

Schmeelk: Knicks Need To Come Up Big In ‘Show Me’ Game Against Bulls

This is a “show me” game for the Knicks that could be a decent preview of what their playoff success might look like.

Schmeelk: Knicks’ Defense Is Falling Apart

The Knicks are the talk of the town at 18-6. It couldn’t be any better, could it? Well, yes. It could.

Schmeelk: Getting Back Amar’e Is A Good Thing, But It Must Be Handled Properly

It’s up to Woodson, Anthony, Chandler and Stoudemire to figure out a way to work together and make a great thing. The Knicks hold the best record in the Eastern Conference, and in a few weeks they will have more talent.

Schmeelk: The Loss Of Brook Lopez Takes Juice Out Of Knicks-Nets Game

There is far less hype surrounding the second meeting between the Knicks and the Nets on Tuesday night than there was for their first game a couple of weeks ago.

Lichtenstein: Nets’ Thrilling Win Just The Beginning Of Beautiful Rivalry With Knicks

For nearly three hours, both teams competed for each New York basketball fan’s heart — if not always very well, then certainly with all their might. The lead changes, missed opportunities and curious strategy all had me on the cusp of detonation.

Hartnett: Knicks Getting Huge Value Out Of Rasheed Wallace

To say that ‘Sheed and the Knicks have turned out to be a great fit on and off the court would be a massive understatement.

Schmeelk: 9 Reasons Why The Knicks Are The Real Deal This Season

I realize that the Knicks won’t maintain their three-point shooting. I know we still haven’t seen Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire play together yet. But I truly believe that this team is for real, and here’s why.

Schmeelk: If Melo Continues To Play Like This, The Sky Is The Limit For The Knicks

If Anthony continues to play with this sort of ferocity and focus on both ends of the floor, the sky is the limit for him and the Knicks. It won’t matter that Amar’e Stoudemire comes back.

Schmeelk: New York Knicks 2012-13 Preview

Schmeelk says the Knicks can go as high as a two seed or as low as a sixth seed. Do you agree?

Keidel: The Knicks Will Never Have The Knack

May Sandy make you stronger, if not wiser. It’s not too late to hop the Hudson, or even the East River, to claim a new hoops allegiance. The Knicks will never have the knack.

Silverman: Knicks, Nets Are Both Primed For Playoff Runs In 2012-13

The Knicks are going to have a shot at making some noise in the watered down Eastern Conference, and the Brooklyn Nets may very well be a playoff team as well.
