Turn On The Knicks:
New York Knicks
San Antonio Spurs
How the Knicks perform in the 2012-2013 season will be a testament to an issue applicable across all sports; the value of knowledge and experience versus athleticism and youth.
Coming into the season the Knicks were the oldest team in NBA history with an average age on the roster of 32 years and 240 days. The team included a 40-year old forward in Kurt Thomas and two 38-year old frontcourt reserves in Marcus Camby and Rasheed Wallace. Jason Kidd was entering his 19th NBA season at 39 years old.
In the beginning of the season the Knicks looked sharp and the introduction of this strong veteran leadership was a leading cause. Keen point guard play and a flowing offense with supreme ball movement helped the Knicks reach a record of 11-4 in November, the first month of their season.
The month included big victories like an opening night 104-84 victory against the defending champion, Miami Heat and an 104-100 win over the San Antonio Spurs who at that time were first in the NBA’s power r...
BEST OF MAXIM
JR Smith has played an important role for the New York Knicks this season, averaging more than 15 points per game and giving the team a dangerous perimeter shooter. He has been one of the best sixth men in the league, but that does not mean New York’s coaching staff is overly thrilled with him.
On Wednesday night, Smith was ejected in the third quarter of a blowout loss to the...
It hasn’t been J.R. Smith’s week. He was ejected from the game against the Pacers on Wednesday. The next day a provocative text with a high school girl leaked online, and now reports suggest him getting testy with Knicks assistant coach, Herb Williams.
According to the NY Post:
Smith also had an incident with the Knicks’ mild-mannered assistant coach, Herb Williams. In the...
J.R. Smith is no stranger to controversy. Last season, he sent out a Twitpic of half naked model, Tahiry, which he was later fined $25K for. This summer he was arrested for driving without a license, and photographed smoking weed in the same week.
It seems 2013 was yearning for some J.R. drama. According to Deadspin, while on a road trip to Philadelphia on January 26th, Smith was...
As Deadspin reported, Knicks Guard/Forward JR Smith is smooth with the ladies. Some would call him a modern-day Shakespeare, or a Casanova if you will. After this screenshot of a Twitter Direct Message with a High School senior went public, JR Smith made light of the situation with the following Instagram post:
Well played, JR. Well played.
Oh, and you know it’s only a...
JR Smith is a true pipe layer.
Everybody's favorite Knickerbocker is back at it on twitter. If you are not familiar, JR Smith tweeted out some chick's bum who was dating Joe Budden's or something or other. He then back tracked on that photo and publicly apologized to Budden. Anywho, flash forward to today and he was DM-ing (direct messaging) some girl on twitter who was going to the Knicks game...

Knicks coach Mike Woodson is standing by his team through thick and thin–eyebrows or no eyebrows. Woodson has faith that his team can beat the almighty Miami Heat.
As reported by FanNation Woodson is saying all the things that a head coach should, even in spite of the Knicks’ putrid performance of late coming out of the All Star Break, and the unremarkable pickup of Kenyon...
