New York Knicks are only beginning uphill battle

Held to a higher standard as one of the NBA’s most historic franchises, yet, perennially disappointing as one of the league’s greatest under-achievers, the New York Knicks have become an 82-game circus of injuries, highly-paid has-beens, and sub-par performances during the past year. Just when it seemed as though the Knicks had finally turned the corner, putting their six year...

He’s following Jose Calderon and Darren Collison as the opening-day starters the previous two seasons...

Why Jose Calderon’s ex-coach keeps calling him ‘beautiful’

Raptors coach Dwane Casey was chatting with reporters, talking about a “great guy, one of those guys you remember as a player.” Seconds later, the object of Casey’s praise, Knicks point guard Jose Calderon (eight points, four assists), stepped up to say hello to his former coach. “Hey, I was just bragging on you. Telling them what a great pig farmer you are,” Casey said...

2014-15 NBA Preview: New York Knicks

After a brief period of semi-relevancy in the East, the Knicks have once again sunk to the lottery cellar despite a bloated budget. They’re a prime example of the dangers of short-term thinking and how you shouldn’t overpay for your second options (Amar’e after failing to bring in LeBron) just because you have the resources. Those decisions set the ceiling low on the potential...

The Tricky Case of Jose Calderon, and Micro and Macro Analysis

There’s been a really interesting shift among a subset of basketball analytics writers (myself included) towards much more micro-level analytics than we’ve previously seen. For a long time, the focus of analytics was on proving which player is better than which other player. ORTG/DRTG, On/Off court +/-, PER, and RAPM were all the focuses of writing and analysis that itself tried...

Turn On The Knicks Roundtable – Who Should Start?

Preseason basketball is usually as meaningful as a James Dolan promise, but with three legitimate shooting guards, four injury prone big men, but just one guaranteed starter on the roster, Derek Fisher certainly has his work cut out for him in early October. The amount of possible combinations are endless, and I think it’s safe to say that the general public will be hard-pressed...

Derek Fisher knows how dangerous his new point guard is

New Knicks point guard Jose Calderon admits learning the triangle offense is “complicated.” But at least Calderon no longer has to deal with the complications of facing the scrappy, hard-nosed point-guard defense of Derek Fisher, now his coach and triangle professor. Last season, the veteran point guards Calderon and Fisher squared off in Western Conference battles between Dallas...

One Question Facing Every Knicks’ Starter

Jose Calderon Can Calderon defend well enough to help New York reach the playoffs? We all know Calderon can shoot it. He has shot above 40% from deep the last two seasons and maintains a 41% average for his career. He’ll likely fill the same role in the Triangle Offense that Derek Fisher filled during his time in LA by knocking down open shots as defenses collapse on Carmelo Anthony...
