As a team, the last thing you want to here is the loss of Iman Shumpert for any amount of time, especially due to a major injury or a re-injury. The Knicks and all the fans will hold their collective breath on the status and injury of Iman Shumpert.

Knicks Basketball: We’ve Been Here Before

By Charles R. Trimble III 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...

JR Smith: It’s On Me

I’ve been letting my teammates down. I’ve been letting my coaches down.” Strong words from the former JR Swish. Maybe it’s time to get Jason Terry to elbow...

10 random thoughts about the New York Knicks as they face elimination

photo via AP 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...

Smith before the show and said he would not be appearing on the afternoon broadcast. On Wednesday morning, the day after the Knicks lost 93-82 to the Indiana Pacers and fell behind 3-1...


(Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports) I've long said that any team that relies on Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith to lead them on offense is doomed.  That seems like a pretty obvious, common sense statement, but the Knicks apparently didn't get the memo.  And Tyson Chandler has had enough of the insanity.  He's come out criticizing the team's selfish, individualistic...

Melo: “Our offense has been sh*t”

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. Tyson Stirs The Pot Nate’s 0fer
