Turn On The Knicks:
Every week at Turn On The Knicks our staff will debate an issue of the week surrounding the team here in Roundtable Format. Make sure to give everybody a follow on Twitter, and follow the site right here. Let us know if you agree/disagree.
What do you expect from Ron Artest this season?
Joe Caporoso - The hope is that Artest brings some needed defense to the Knicks wing position and has some type of consistent ability to knock down the corner three. In theory, putting him at the 3 with Carmelo Antony at the 4 should be a strong pairing that allows the Knicks flexibility on both ends of the court. Artest is never an easy player to predict and he is going to make some plays that drive all of us insane, including awful shot selections and poorly timed technical fouls. However, in the end he should be a net positive addition for the Knicks and a very valuable player to have in the rotation in the playoffs.

In last week’s Throwback Thursday, TOK showed you the short career of Kenny “Sky” Walker, the originator of the flattop for the New York Knicks. If you think that was the sweetest haircut to suit up in blue and orange, then you haven’t seen anything yet.
Anthony Mason was many things for the 1990′s New York Knicks. He was a rebounder. He was an enforcer. He was a 6-7,...
Well this NBA season is sure shaping up just how New York basketball fans want it to. The Knicks and Nets rivalry continues to grow as members of both sides continue to go back and forth through with the trash talk. The latest jab was at the Knicks and came at the hands of new Nets acquisition Paul Pierce. When asked about J.R. Smith’s comments about the Nets, the former Boston...
Over the past two days, the New York Knicks have worked out Ricky Davis, Cole Aldrich, Justin Brownlee, Ike Diogu and Josh Powell.
The workouts are part of a free agent minicamp this week.
The Knicks recently signed guards Toure Murry and Chris Smith.
The New York Knicks were allegedly involved in a point-shaving scandal back in the 1980’s according to a new book coming out which references FBI files. Apparently, three members of the Knicks were shaving points as a favor to their cocaine supplier, but did not receive any money for it. The FBI has confirmed the authenticity of the documents cited by the book. Here is a slice...
Even though the 2013-2014 offseason has yet to tip off, there are many people, myself included, who are already looking forward to the 2014 offseason.

Still, free agency is ...The post Will Carmelo Anthony Leave New York After This Season? appeared...
The New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets have had a long off-season love fest talking about New York City ownership. Of course everybody from this area knows this is a Knicks city and always will be, it is just a historical fact and reality. When the Nets were in New Jersey, they had 14 fans who all lived right off the Turnpike. When the Nets moved to Brooklyn, they picked up another...

If you want to win a championship, you have to hit it hard every single day. See how Carmelo does more when he steps off the court and into the ring.
When the season’s over, the off-season’s just beginning. See how cycling helps Kevin do more to stay in shape mentally and physically.
The point is that to be a champion doing ok isn’t enough, you have to “Do More”

When Smith’s name was repeated Pierce made his point clear.
“Who?” he repeated before heading into new Nets teammate Deron Williams’ charity dodgeball tournament which was held at Basketball City on...
This would be a little more interesting if JR Smith wasn’t known more for weed and Rihanna than basketball, but it is still funny.
JR Smith called Paul Pierce a bitter old man and when Pierce was asked about that comment and what he thought about JR here is what he had to say.
“Who? Who?” Pierce repeated Thursday when asked about Smith’s comments.
Asked again, Pierce said...
More Knicks-Nets trash talk: This time it’s Paul Pierce responding to J.R. Smith’s claims that he will “pay for his words” after the new Pierce said it was time for the Nets to run New York. The new Nets forward acted as if he’d never heard of Smith when asked about the comments at Deron Williams’ charity dodgeball event Thursday.
Conversation with Paul Pierce: yadayada...
