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.

Patient Guard Iman Shumpert Targeting A January Or February Return

“January, February is what we’re aiming for,” Shumpert said. “I’m just trying to get healthy. When I get healthy, I’ll return to the court. I’m not going to come back and not be able to do the things I did last year and a little more. I want to come back and add something.’’

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: What To Watch For As The Knicks Open Their Season Against The Heat

I want to see if the Knicks can do a better job slowing down LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Both players got into the lane way too easily last year against the Knicks. The Knicks have to play the pick-and-roll better and improve their individual defense.

Knicks Set To Host Heat In ‘Emotional’ Opener At MSG

LeBron James and the champs. Opening night at MSG. Under normal circumstances, as electric a scene as there is in the NBA. Things are still far from normal in New York.

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?

All in all, until Stoudemire gets back, here’s how I see Woodson breaking down the 240 minutes available in an NBA game.

Schmeelk: Observations And Takeaways From The Knicks’ Preseason

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.

Schmeelk: Knicks Must Handle Issues Around Stoudemire Injury With Care

On the surface it’s a minor injury, but it’s still a big setback considering how important the preseason was supposed to be to get the Knicks’ chemistry issues straightened out.

Schmeelk: Let’s Not Jump The Gun On This Knicks Offense, Please

Anyone that says they know how the offense is going to be run right now is lying. They don’t. Nobody does. And no, watching practice on MSG or in person isn’t enough for me, either. I need to see it when the lights are on against real competition.

Schmeelk: The Knicks Are Too Old? Please, Don’t Let Stats Deceive You

Whether in the newspapers, in blogs or on Twitter, the running joke about the Knicks is their advanced age. They’ve been called geriatric, ancient and elderly. The average age will say this is an old team, but stats are deceiving.
