High Flight… James White
With the likes of Ronnie Brewer, JR Smith and Iman Shumpert at the shooting guard position the Knicks seem to be pretty set at that position. Especially after watching the first two preseason games, it seems as if Mike Woodson will not hesitate to use Kidd at the two guard with either Pablo or Raymond running the show. So where does this leave high flying James White? That remains to be seen, especially after White didn’t seem to show much in his first action as a Knick Friday night against the Celtics. White hasn’t exactly had a story book road to the NBA and is a roster spot on this 2012-2013 Knicks roster a guarantee?
White started off his college career in 2001 as a Florida Gator and experienced marginal success averaging 6.1 points per game. He frequently would amaze fans with put back dunks and fast break throw downs, but didn’t seem to fit in with other players on the team and in Billy Donovan’s system. However, after his freshman year he transferred to the University of Cincinnati where he had much greater success after sitting out a year. He averaged 16.3 points and 5.1 rebounds. While moving into the starting lineup at Cinci he also lettered in track and field, competing in the high jump and triple jump.
White was drafted in the 2006 NBA draft by the Portland Trail Blazers 31st overall, but was traded on draft night to the Pacers. He was cut by the Pacers without making the team that year but was signed to a two year contract by the San Antonio Spurs. He was assigned to the D-League soon after signing with the Spurs. After playing a few games during the year with the Spurs, White left the NBA and went to play in the Turkish League with Fenerbahce. While playing in Turkey, White won the Turkish dunk contest in 2008. In 2009 White played in the Russian Super League team, than an Italian team Dinamo Sassari and then finally signing a one year deal with Scavolini Peraro, before signing a 1-year 1.4 million dollar deal with the Knicks this past offseason.
After a long journey across Europe, the D-League and college campuses has James White found a home at the World’s Most Famous Arena? It has yet to be seen if he can continue to work and find his niche with this Knicks team, one who is still looking to find its own identity. Whether James finds a roll with this team or not one thing is for sure, High Flight James White can definitely help bring back the NBA slam dunk title to New York.

Copeland 15th Spot For Him to Lose?
On Saturday the Knicks played the Celtics in their 2nd pre-Season game. It was a back and forth game until the Celtics took a strong lead mid-way through the game, which was until Chris Copeland came off the bench for the first time.
After sitting for about 2 hours, Copeland came out knowing he had something to prove after his pretty bad...
Stephon Marbury certainly had an interesting run in the NBA, particularly known for his scoring ability. The guard averaged over 19 points and 7 assists per game over his 13 year career before going to play ball overseas in China.
He was definitely a personality, and some would call him a chemistry killer.
Now, it looks like there are bigger issues on his plate than just being called...

The New York Knicks are an old veteran team, and even though some of the older vets are banged up already, one of the younger Knicks is also wounded. Newsday is reporting that Knicks backup guard J.R. Smith is in a walking boot, trying to take some pressure off a sore left Achilles heel. Head [...]

Defense!! Defense!! That is the common chant roaring from the fans that pack Madison Square Garden for every home game. Defense is the heart and soul of New York basketball. It has been for many decades.
Back in the 90’s, the Knicks and defense went hand in hand. The Knicks were known for their rough and intimidating style of defense. In the early 90’s it was guys like...
Knicks go down to the Raptors 107-88 and some things need to be looked at in the coming days. The only problem is the Knicks have the Celtics tomorrow night. We all know Boston is a seasoned team that has reloaded and will take this game seriously. Thank god it’s a pre-season game. Enjoy the videos.

Enoch Smith Jr. has been a big factor in Mt. Carmel's success this year. He talks about the upcoming playoffs, his team, and his connection with a current Illini freshman.
If you happen to pick up this month's issue of GQ magazine, you will see the smiling face of Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin starring back you.In the GQ interview, most of Lin's answers are pretty pedestrian but he does provide some interesting comments about wanting to stay with his last team, the New York Knicks:"You can't ask for a city or a fan base to...

I don’t know who Chris Copeland is, but I sincerely hope there is only one of him in the NBA, or the Celtics are going have their hands full defensively much more often than we would like.Copeland ripped apart the Celtics again, dropping 34 points on a variety of defenders. Most of his points came off pick and roll cuts and backdoor cuts, as well as a variety of threes from progressively...
