It’s That Time Of Year! Schmeelk’s Christmas Gifts For The Knicks

I decided it was time for me to play part Santa Claus and part Wizard of Oz and give the Knicks much better gifts than they have ever given their fan base.

Schmeelk: Chandler’s Return Doesn’t Solve Knicks’ Biggest Problem

To say the Knicks’ guards have been bad this year would be an understatement. To call them the worst collection of guards in the NBA would be accurate. It’s that horrid.

Knicks’ Prigioni To Miss 2 Weeks Minimum With Broken Toe

The injury leaves New York with only two healthy point guards on its roster: Beno Udrih and rookie Toure’ Murry.

Schmeelk: Kyle Lowry Is A Good Fit For Knicks — But At What Cost?

Here’s the issue: Lowry is a free agent after this season. If the Knicks want to re-sign him long-term it will probably cost them around eight million dollars a season, give or take. That type of contract will make it nearly impossible for the Knicks to bring in another max player in the 2015 offseason if Carmelo Anthony signs a max extension this summer.

Report: Knicks Owner Dolan Vetoes Trade For Raptors’ Lowry

James Dolan, angry with details being leaked, put the kibosh on a trade proposal Thursday that could have landed Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry, according to the Daily News.

Report: Banged-Up Knicks Exploring Trade For Raptors’ Lowry

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last six weeks, the Knicks have major problems. And every day those problems seem to multiply.

Schmeelk: Only The Players Can Save Mike Woodson Now

Mike Woodson just had three days of practice. I hope he used them well. It might very well be the last days he will have as head coach of the Knicks to turn this thing around. But he needs help from his players.

Report: Knicks Offer Shumpert, Felton, Amar’e For Rajon Rondo

New York has attempted to deal Iman Shumpert, Raymond Felton and Amar’e Stoudemire in a deal for the four-time NBA All-Star, but Danny Ainge doesn’t appear to be interested, according to a report.

Schmeelk: Is Defense Really The Knicks’ Problem? Look A Bit Closer…

The ball movement has either been nonexistent or turnover prone. Until that changes, and the Knicks’ best players start to shoot better, there’s going to continue to be rough basketball at MSG.

Schmeelk: How Do You Replace The Irreplaceable Tyson Chandler?

Last week I wrote about how Chandler might be the Knicks’ most irreplaceable player, so naturally less than a week later he fractures his leg and will miss anywhere from a month to a month and a half.

Schmeelk says this year’s Knicks squad is capable of winning 50 games.

Schmeelk: J.R. Smith Starting Is A Disaster Waiting To Happen

With Smith and Anthony on the court together, the ball often stops, which would hurt the ultra-effective Felton/Chandler pick-and-roll. Smith also doesn’t apply the smart, heady defense that’s needed with the rest of the starting five.

Schmeelk: How Can The Knicks Improve Defensively?

For the Knicks to make a serious run to the NBA Finals, they have to improve their defense. There’s a few ways that a team’s defense can be improved.

Schmeelk: Breaking Down Mike Woodson’s Offense/Defense Dilemma

Woodson will have a lot of flexibility when it comes to finding the proper offense/defense balance. He can go with a dual point-guard lineup with Prigioni or start a bigger two-guard like Shumpert or Smith.
