Preseason game 5… Melo’s return to Cuse   3 Thoughts immediately after watching this game:   1.  I was disappointed with the Knicks in the first half of this game tonight. They started off with a good open to the game, but after that the Knicks offense was stagnate. Guys were taking bad shots and poor ball movement mixed with absent transition defense lead to what was the worst half of basketball I have seen the Knicks play this preseason. 2. Defensively the Knicks need to guard in transition and defend ball screens much better than they have shown so far. Tonight the 76ers had too many transition buckets and open three pointers it frustrated the Knicks to take bad shots offensively. 3. I understand that the Knicks are without Amare and JR, who are two of their better offensive players, but other guys have to be able to step up and put the ball in the basket. When Melo is the only offensive threat on the floor, it makes the Knicks very easy to guard, and that showed tonight.   Read More Here!

Should Amare Stoudemire Be On The Second Unit?

The  New York Knicks need Stoudemire to be healthy for them to be a serious contender this year, but where is the best place for him in the lineup?  Not to only get the best out of him as a player, but also to help the Knicks other key pieces. I love statistics and numbers don’t lie, they don’t capture everything but they definitely paint a picture based on facts. I was...

New York Knicks’ DISHING AND…. MORE DISHING

As the 1st quarter of the Knicks/Celtics pre-season game wound down Saturday, Mike Breen said, “It sounds simple: Ball Movement. But, it is really is the key to success on the offensive end”. Mike could not have been more right. The teams you see win rings are the ones that move the ball. Elite teams like Boston, Miami, and Chicago have unselfish players. Since the Melo trade...

Amar’e Stoudemire’s Popliteal Cyst

Amar’e Stoudemire, New York Knicks Center-Forward, may actually be fortunate to have suffered a ruptured popliteal cyst this week, though it will keep him out of action for at least two to three weeks. What is more worrisome than this new wrinkle is whether any of the knee diagnoses Stoudemire has dealt with in the past are more of an issue than the Knicks are aware of or are letting...

New Yor Knicks vs Philadelphia 76ers: Preseason Preview

Knicks vs 76ers Pre Game: The Knicks are once again shorthanded.  Yes, we get to see the debut of Ronnie Brewer at the shooting guard position and yes, this will be Carmelo Anthony’s return to the Carrier Dome on the campus of Syracuse University. I, for one, do not want the major excuse for this season to become the fact that Carmelo and Amar’e have not had a full training...
