New York Knicks
The NBA offseason has reached the utmost of slow points of the summer, but luckily for the Knicks, the team can rest assured knowing the roster is more or less set for the upcoming season.Despite allowing Jeremy Lin to sign with the Rockets, thus ending "Linsanity" in the Big Apple, Knicks' General Manager Glen Grunwald still did a masterful job filling out the team this summer.Alex Raskin of NJ.com helps fans take a look back at Grunwald's busy offseason (in chronological order, for that matter) during which the executive retained the likes of J.R. Smith and Steve Novak, and also lured in popular veterans like Jason Kidd and Marcus Camby.In the piece, Raskin asks readers and fans alike to assess Grunwald's work. What do you believe is the best move he made? What about the worst one?Kidd and Raymond Felton, as a pair, are a very solid alternative to Jeremy Lin. Despite Lin's popularity, there's no denying that both Kidd and Felton are quality floor gene...
BEST OF MAXIM
Jeremy Lin won't be making a return to the Big Apple next season, but Raymond Felton will be. After leading the Nets to back to back NBA Finals appearances in 2002 and 2003, Jason Kidd will also make a return to the tri-state area as he too dons orange and blue for the Knicks this fall.With two quality point guards ready to compete for major minutes, is it obvious which one should...
The former Tar Heel during his first stint with the New York Knicks
As the summer days begin to get shorter, the months to college football and the NFL become weeks and then days, you also know that the National Basketball Association will be coming out of hiatus soon enough. For one former North Carolina basketball player this season might be the most important one in his career...
Point guard Raymond Felton had his worst season as a pro last season it Portland but more of that was the system he was playing in. Now, he is back in New York and ready to show people he can still play. Felton will be playing point guard for the departed Jeremy Lin. The Knicks also brought in Jason Kidd but Felton is still the unquestioned starter.
Raymond Felton wants...
It takes two to make a thing go right; it takes two to make it out of sight. These famous words by Rob Base are fitting for Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. Well, Ok not as famous as you think, but a classic line in a song from my generation.
Amare to Melo and Melo to Amare are the keys to sustainable success in New York City and the Knicks. This task would be difficult in...
I think the Melo stans are dwindling day by day. His inability to simply get the job done down in New York has minimized his reputation to just a cat that can give you 20 points any given night but it stops there. And to win a chip in the NBA you need to bring more to the table. But he paid right?
I can vividly remember playing pickup basketball as a kid. I was horrible back then. I had no athletic ability; I couldn’t jump, run or shoot. The best attribute of my game was passing simply because I had no other options. I can remember listening to guys shoot the ball, yelling “Kobe” as the ball goes through the net. I used to wish that I had that ability. I practiced...
Boston loves Scal. Of course, we didn’t always. People tend to forget that early on in Scal’s tenure here, a lot of people hated him. But they were under some impression that him popping wide open 3′s as a result of being set up by Jason Kidd would continue without him when he joined a crappy team. People also tend to forget he was part of two losing seasons in Boston...
