The Knicks are one win away from elimination or one win away from an historic comeback, but one thing’s for sure; the Knicks have been here before.
It’s beginning to feel a lot like 1995 when the Pacers, then led by Reggie Miller, took a 3-1 series lead in the Eastern Conference Semi-Final round only to see the Knicks roar back to tie the series up at 3-3. Now I understand that most would say, those Knicks squads were incredibly battled tested and this Knick team hasn’t done anything, especially in this series, to warrant such belief, but with 2 out of the next 3 games scheduled to be played at MSG, why not believe coming back is POSSIBLE!
The Knicks biggest problem this series, besides Roy Hibbert, has been confidence! I believe shaking up the starting line-up prior to Game 4 was a huge mistake from a coach who has struggled to make proper decisions as the stakes has risen. The Knicks must get back to who they are and not play the Pacers game. Instead of a...

Knicks guard J.R. Smith claims his poor play is the reason the team is down 3-1 in its series against the Pacers, saying, "I have to play more efficient ... It’s unacceptable."
Rihanna has never been one to hold her tongue. A few weeks ago tongues were wagging that she and Knicks star JR Smith had a “situation” developing. Well Rihanna made it clear to one fan who is blaming her for JR’s shooting slump that not only is she not responsible, she thinks JR is just as parched as the Sahara desert…
It’s Rihanna, there is profanity. You’ve been warned...
Here is the J.R. Smith photo that is driving black women nuts today on Twitter and other social media. Shockingly…
Rihanna took offense on Instagram Thursday and responded to a fan who blamed her for the J.R. Smith’s recent playoff slump. The pop singer has been linked on and off to the 6th Man of the Year for quite some time, but most recently when they were pictured partying at her tour’s after-party in New York after his team’s only win against the Pacers in the series thus far. Smith...
Hooray more basketball! The New York Knicks extended at least two more days to their season with a 85-75 victory over the Indiana Pacers tonight. It was a generally ugly game, filled with a seemingly endless amount of turnovers, missed shots and missed free throws. Yet, the Knicks grabbed control early, gradually built their lead and never let the Pacers really threaten in the final...

The Knicks are on the brink of elimination thanks to the Indiana Pacers, so anymore outside distractions could contribute to the end their season. Unfortunately for them Rihanna never got the memo.

Raymond Felton isn't exactly that sleek player that he used to be. Once a dominant player at the collegiate level who led the North Carolina Tar Heels to a National Championship in 2005, Felton has packed on a few extra pounds since coming to the NBA.

Last night was ugly. After the Knicks game, I wanted nothing to do with anyone. Truth be told, I still don’t. But since writing tends to be therapeutic at times, I decided to write a quick blog with random thoughts and questions about the Knicks. They’re not in any particular order. My mind doesn’t work like that, lol. Instead, it’s just a brain...
A Big Distraction
Raymond Felton isn’t exactly that sleek player that he used to be. Once a dominant player at the collegiate level who led the North Carolina Tar Heels to a National Championship in 2005, Felton has packed on a few extra pounds since coming to the NBA.

I've long said that any team that relies on Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith to lead them on offense is doomed. That seems like a pretty obvious, common sense statement, but the Knicks apparently didn't get the memo. And Tyson Chandler has had enough of the insanity. He's come out criticizing the team's selfish, individualistic...
After going down 3-1 and making nice-nice with Tyson Chandler, Carmelo Anthony stopped playing around in his interviews after Game 4 “We haven’t been effective on the offensive end. We’re not making shots. It is what it is.” Dap for stepping up like a man, but I really do feel like the word “Duh” should come after all his quotes lately.

Last night the crew at “Inside the NBA” did their usual ribbing of Charles Barkley, but did so by casually mentioning Chuck’s appearance on something called “The Reggie Miller Show”. This isn’t the first time the TNT crew has mentioned this as evidenced by the preceding link, but this got folks thinking…REGGIE MILLER ACTUALLY GOT The post Reggie Miller Once Had His...
