Robin Lopez readying to transform the Knicks' defense

It's far-fetched to call Robin Lopez the best defensive anchor the Knicks have had in the long time. That would be a disservice to the tremendous work former Defensive Player of the Year Tyson Chandler did during his time in New York. But Lopez is darn good fundamentally, and certainly adds an element last year's 17-win Knicks didn't possess.Now, even early in the year, Lopez is...

Rejected New York Knicks Logo Ideas

Back in 1992, eight-time winner of the New York Art Directors Club Silver Award Michael Doret redesigned the Knicks logo and for the most part, it has not changed in 23 years. Before the final look was selected, Doret designed a bunch of other Knick logos that did not make the cut. Which resurfaced in sketch form not to long ago and now designer Eric Paullin from Charlotte,NC brought...

'Django Unchained' and the black professional athlete

The most insightful scene about sports and race in an American film is found in something that’s not technically a sports movie.

Phil Jackson says silly things, but that's okay

Phil Jackson was once remembered as being one of — if not the — best coaches in the history of basketball. Yet, that was “forever” ago: way before social media, and especially before he took over the duties of trying to make the incompetent New York Knicks slightly more competent.
