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. At 35 years old, Prigioni may not be the quickest point guard in the world, but the guy simply has court vision that you just can't teach.Whether it be their collective experience playing overseas or not, Prigioni and Copeland just seem to have a complete understanding of one another on the court. They've been excelling alongside each other all preseason long, and last night, they led the charge as the Knicks beat Brooklyn.An array of Prigioni's 11 assists went Copeland's way as the pair paced the Knicks through the fourth quarter and overtime. The Argentinian is also someone who likes to chase loose bal...

ANTHONY ... NO
NBA broadcaster Marv Albert isn't high on Carmelo Anthony as a player. He had some criticisms of Melo during a recent interview.
Jason WhitneyPablo Prigioni may be the next star of the New York Knicks!
Pablo Prigioni may be the next star of the New York Knicks, if he continues to play the way he has this preseason. He had a terrific game last night against the Brooklyn Nets dishing out 11 assists. What was more terrific was his post-game interview with MSG’s Tina Cervasio. Now we all understand that Pablo...
The New York Knicks need Stoudemire to be healthy for them to be a serious contender this year, but where is the best place for him in the lineup? Not to only get the best out of him as a player, but also to help the Knicks other key pieces.
I love statistics and numbers don’t lie, they don’t capture everything but they definitely paint a picture based on facts. I was...
Earlier this offseason, Carmelo Anthony made a vow that he was tired of scoring 30 or 40 points on a nightly basis, and now had more of a focus on doing whatever it took to win games. If that took defending and rebounding, and only taking 12 shots, he would do it.
This is admirable for anyone who knows Melo’s game. He shoots a lot, but a lot of the time, he is very good at it...
As I watch Wally give his insightful opinion (preseason)on the knicks players and inside knowledge of a player that has recentlyretired from the NBA game, he brings fresh air to the MSG telecast.
He's the best commentator up there now IMHO .
Of course you heard, the Knicks received good news yesterday. Tyson is day to day with a bruised knee. We can’t explain the importance to health for the 12/13 NY Knicks and it all starts with Tyson. Our minds have been pre-occupied with Amare, Camby, Brewer, Sheed, and Shump. Basically the whole team at some point was injured or held out of practice and games for some reason...
The Knicks are optimistic that Tyson Chandler will be ready for the regular season opener against the Nets, but will likely be conservative.
The Knicks are facing the Nets at Nassau Coliseum tonight in their 6th and final pre-season game. The Knicks have not played well as of late and I am hoping to see the them develop some real chemistry tonight, even though many of the rotation guys are out.
We all know this is just the pre-season, but the Knicks have looked truly lackadaisical defensively and out of sync offensively...
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 [...]
