Schmeelk: Knicks Winning With Defense

Nope, that’s not a typo. Mike D’Antoni’s Knicks are winning with defense. It’s the first time that could be said of any Knicks team since Jeff Van Gundy was the coach more than ten years ago. Don’t believe me? Just look at the numbers.

Schmeelk: Knicks Fans, Stop Pining For Jamal Crawford

Watching fans pine for Jamal Crawford has been confusing and disconcerting. Despite doing nothing but losing with Crawford as one of the Knicks key cogs, fans have fond memories of him during his time in New York.
