Knicks Journal :
The Knicks defeated the Nets at Nassau Coliseum in their preseason finale Wednesday night by a score of 97-95. As New York sealed the deal with a victory, it should have come to nobody's surprise who helped lead the way.Pablo Prigioni and Chris Copeland have emerged as two worthy rotation players over the last couple of weeks, and nothing changed Wednesday night.

Ten years ago, can you believe it? The ’02-’03 season ended with Syracuse cutting down the nets in New Orleans, site of so much horror for the program before that. The kid that erased all those ghosts was back in the Dome this week.
The critics can howl all they want about Carmelo Anthony. You’ve heard it all before: He doesn’t make his teammates better. He doesn’t play...
Rasheed Wallace. Yep, I dared team Ballin Like Smush to do it and he is now the proud owner of ‘Sheed for $1 (until waivers on Thursday kicks in at least). This, in a way, shows the beauty of an auction. You can start nominating the top guys like LeBron James or try to squeeze [...]
