Turn On The Knicks:
With most Knicks fans down in the dumps, TOK is not only offering you a shoulder to cry on, but also attempting to brighten your spirits by reminiscing on the good times. Just like last week, we’re revisiting 1999.
14 years ago to the date, the New York Knicks made NBA history by joining the 1994 Denver Nuggets as the only eight-seeds to upset a number one. The best-of-five format made pulling off the unthinkable much more feasible in those days, but a gritty Knicks squad featuring the late game heroics of Allan Houston was able to get the job done. I remember celebrating this shot with “Knicks fans” who all jumped ship when the going got tough just a few years later.
The Heat are bound to cruise to a championship this year, so if nothing else Knicks fans can find some joy in seeing Zo and company at one of their lowest moments.

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...
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...

You would think that the athletes of the NBA wouldn’t have issues with a simple high-five but check out this blown high five between New York Knicks teammate Chris Copeland and Tyson Chandler.
Watch as miscommunication between the two causes the forgettable moment:

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...
J.R. Smith hasn’t had a particularly fun last two weeks. It started when he elbowed Boston Celtics guard Jason Terry, which caused him to be suspended a game. Then the shooting went south. Very south. The NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year is shooting 29% over his last six games. Then the rumors swirled that Smith was partying before and after games. Smith then got sick and had a high...
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. Jocks and Stiletto Jill caught RiRi replying to someone on Instagram who was blaming her for JR Smith’s recent shooting woe’s. In the [...]
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...
Jason Kidd hasn't scored a point in 8 games (since Game 2 vs Boston), but another Knick may being going through an even bigger slump. After JR Smith's flagrant foul got him suspended for Game 4 of the Celtics series (a game Smith claimed New York would have won if he'd played), he has yet to shoot even 40% from the field in a single game. Smith is a combined 26-91...
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.
Drafted in 2005 by the Charlotte Bobcats with the 5th pick in the NBA Draft, he actually performed admirably during...
It was disappointing to hear that MSG hierarchy pulled the plug on Mike Woodson’s regular segment on ESPN-98.7 with Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco. I don’t believe this is much of a loss from a radio standpoint – Woodson’s matter-of-fact interview style probably would annoy the bloodthirsty fans - but from an organizational Q-Rating it’s a black eye. I also think...
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.
