Found March 21, 2013 on Turn On The Knicks:
PLAYERS: Kurt Thomas
TEAMS: New York Knicks
The Knicks wouldn’t have defeated the Jazz Monday night without the efforts of Kurt Thomas.  Sure, he only scored six points and injured himself after playing a season high 26 minutes, but at the age of 40, his heart and hustle was used as motivation for the rest of the team. Still, no matter how old he gets, his post defense is not to be ignored and the elbow jay is automatic. This Throwback Thursday, TOK brings you to a time when Thomas was much more dominant than what we see today. Finding Kurt Thomas highlight reels is virtually impossible. He’s one of the least flashy players of the last 20 years, but I think that’s what makes him so beloved by New Yorkers. Thomas is never taller or more athletic than most opponents, but he’s always used his basketball IQ and brute strength to outsmart them. It will be a sad day for Knicks fans when Thomas retires, so enjoy whatever he has left in the tank. The post Turn On The Knicks Throwback Thursday – March 21st Edition appeared first on ...

This year, the word that comes to mind first when thinking of Steve Novak, is inconsistency...

What a Difference a Month Makes

On February 22, I posted an article comparing the advantages of age and experience versus those of youth and athleticism that has been so applicable to the New York Knicks all season. Now, just one month later, it is time to revisit that debate because in the case of the 2012-2013 Knicks it appears that the issue may be more clear. To refresh your memory, this Knicks team is the...

Patrick Ewing Says Knicks Aren’t Good Enough To Dethrone The Heat
