The Lakers avenged an embarrassing loss at MSG by beating the Knicks at Staples Center on Christmas Day.
The Knicks are the talk of the town at 18-6. It couldn’t be any better, could it? Well, yes. It could.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Knicks have come out of the gates strongly by starting their season 2-0 after defeating the Sixers on Sunday.
Schmeelk says the Knicks can go as high as a two seed or as low as a sixth seed. Do you agree?
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.
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.
All in all, until Stoudemire gets back, here’s how I see Woodson breaking down the 240 minutes available in an NBA game.
With five preseason games in the books and just one remaining on Wednesday, the Knicks are 2-3. There’s been plenty to like and plenty not to like. Here’s my take so far.
The New York Knicks didn’t get any younger on Wednesday. The team officially signed forward Rasheed Wallace, a four-time All-Star who is ending a two-year retirement.
