One Player the Knicks Should Target At Every Position

Point Guard Patrick Beverley I don’t expect the Knicks to target any elite free agent point guards with Jose Calderon on the roster.  That doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t add one if the price is right, however. Beverley is a quality defender and while he has his offensive deficiencies, they could be hidden in the triangle offense, which has helped to not expose weaker point...

Report: David West likely to sign with the Knicks

When 34-year-old Indiana Pacers forward David West opted out of a contract that was set to pay him $12.6 million next season, most people were thrown for a loop. In decline and past his prime, there was no way West would receive anywhere near that type of money on the open market. While we have no idea if there were monetary reasons for West’s shocking decision, Bleacher Report’s Jared...

The Hawks trade for Hardaway is a rare move for the team

After so many days and weeks of palpable buzz, the 2015 NBA Draft dramatically underwhelmed, from a pure entertainment value, with its incredible lack of trades. There were no trades involving players selected in the lottery—none of the lottery picks had been exchanged before draft night, either—and the few NBA veterans who were traded were role players. The general lack of...

Phil Jackson and the Disastrous New York Knicks

On June 25, 2015, the New York Knicks took a step back in becoming a contending basketball team. At this point I feel like the New York Knicks could use: Stacey Patton, Allan Houston, Willis Reed, and Patrick to help change the culture with the Knicks. In last night’s NBA Draft, Phil Jackson selected Kristaps Porzingis 4th overall, which to some it felt like a reach. At the fourth...

This was validated when these two top prospects went number-one and number-three respectively. To further add insult to injury, the Knicks’ other top option, D’Angelo Russell, also...
