The Heat and Pacers are currently going toe to toe in the Eastern Conference Finals, leaving the Knicks and their fans alike to sit back at home in awe and frustration at what could've been.Before New York ultimately attacks its offseason and the front office aims to make necessary changes and improvements, plenty of fans are still reflecting upon what went wrong against Indiana.One of those very fans, of course, is Spike Lee. Clearly one of the most passionate celebrity Knickerbocker fans of all time, Spike has been aboard for both the good times and the bad ones.In the clip below, Spike chats with Stephen A. Smith and Skin Bayless of ESPN regarding what stung most about the loss and what may lie ahead or the Knicks. An ongoing theme between the trio was undoubtedly the fact that the Knicks were seemingly constructed to match up best against the Heat (not the Pacers), but feel free to watch the clip for more.Whereas the renowned director is taking time to reflect, my pal and Kn...

Melo Wants Help: Creating a 2nd Option for Melo and the Knicks

The 2nd option, or should I say the lack of the 2nd option, plagued the Knicks all season. With their real 2nd option, Amar’e Stoudemire out due to injury, the Knicks turned to J.R. Smith as their 2nd and only other offensive weapon. The only problem is that J.R. has proved that he not that type of player. This is another issue that held the Knicks back during the season as well...

Turn On The Knicks Throwback Thursday – May 30th Edition – New York Knicks Draft Blunders

Last week, we kicked our New York Knicks Draft Blunders with the Round Mound of Disappointment known as Michael Sweetney, but trust me, the Knicks have matched that incompetency on much more than one occasion. In 2002, they finally made the right selection, but still managed to make a mess of it. With the seventh pick of the 2002 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks selected Nene Hilario...

New York Knicks – How To Balance Offense?

Chris Paul and the Knicks: A Complete, Detailed Look-In at The Knicks’ Chances of Getting CP3

Chris Paul’s free agency grows closer every day as the star point guard will almost certainly opt out of his contract with the Los Angeles Clippers on July 1st and test free agency.

Steph Curry Says He’s So Happy He Didn’t Fall to Knicks in the Draft

More than anything else the Knicks need a scorer who can create off the dribble and is a consistent jump shooter. Steph Curry would have fit in perfectly. Unfortunately for the Knicks, the Warriors snatched up Curry before they had a chance (The Warriors had the 8th pick in 2009 NBA Draft and the Knicks the 9th Pick). It is a decision that Curry is grateful for. “The great thing...

For LeBron, Heat it had to be the shoes

It's gotta be the shoes, LeBron. You sure it's not the shoes? Nike might want to call Spike Lee to reprise his role as Mars Blackmon after what King James did in the Heat's 90-79 win over the Pacers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Thursday. You see, LeBron was just pedestrian in the first half, scoring 11 points as the Heat trailed 44-40. Then, the King...

20 Years Ago Tonight

20 years ago tonight.  I know it's not Celtics-related but it's gotta be remembered.  Probably the most amazing non-Celtic playoff game finish I've ever seen.  This moment epitomized Charles Smith's career. It's funny how every member of the Bulls touched the ball during this sequence, even if Stacey King had it ricochet off his face.  At that time it&...
