Turn On The Knicks:
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks are currently riding a five-game winning streak, revamping confidence in the team once again this season. It’s been an up and down roller-coaster for these Knicks, and just over a week ago they seemed to be hitting rock bottom with a four-game losing streak. Questions of how Carmelo Anthony would perform after getting his knee drained mixed with the fact Tyson Chandler has been forced to miss time with a bulging disc in his neck, had Knicks fans torn on how the rest of the season could eventually play out.
Since the Knicks recent concerns have grown rapidly, the team has come together to prove they have the backbone to be a championship contender. The Knicks have executed this current five-game winning streak that has bolted them past the Indiana Pacers for the second seed in the East, without the heart and soul of their team in Chandler. Fortunately, Kenyon Martin has filled that role with near perfection.
With Anthony continuing to play the game the way we all...

At the beginning of the season, the Knicks reeled a bevy of well known and proven veterans in to fill out their squad.Though New York currently stands as the league's oldest team, the thought-process behind this was that if most of the seasoned vetereans were able to conservatively share minutes with one another, they'd each be able to thrive while not being asked or expected...
Kenyon Martin has proved to be a valuable pickup for the Knicks, averaging 11.7 points and 6.8 rebounds in seven games as a starter since Tyson Chandler went down with a neck injury, so how does he feel about the Celtics passing on him earlier this season? “It’s their fault.”
According to Marc Berman, New York Post:
Celtics coach Doc Rivers admitted the team inquired when Martin...

As I sat in section 221 with my son Saturday night, I just marveled at the recent play of former Knick killer Kenyon Martin who has been a godsend to the injury riddled Knickerbocker squad. As we serenaded him with “Ken-yon Mar-tin” chants I leaned over to my son and said, “I can’t wait to see the tandem of Chandler and...
Kenyon Martin has been a key addition to the Knicks roster.
The Boston Celtics could use another big body right about now. Kevin Garnett is expected to miss as much as another two weeks with an ankle injury. KG has missed four of the past six games for the Celtics, and the team is currently in the middle of a five-game losing streak. Coincidence? I think not.
Boston could have signed Kenyon Martin to bolster their front court earlier this...
