Schmeelk: A New York Basketball Turf War Is Born

The Nets struck the first blow. It was great to watch. It was hard fought, gritty, emotional, physical and sometimes ugly basketball. It was New York basketball.

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.

Schmeelk: Knicks Get Away With Poor Play In Victory Over Orlando

It was an ugly win for the Knicks, and they’ll have more as the season goes along. But I hope that Mike Woodson makes sure his team understands that slippage like that against better teams will result in losses.

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.
