Knicks 2018-19 Player Preview: Trey Burke

Posting and Toasting (The Ghost of Kristaps Past) — Was last year’s performance just an unsustainable hot streak or something more? We like to believe player development and career progression is a straightforward and relatively linear path, especially for lottery picks. As a rookie you show promise, in your second season you follow it up with more consistency and by years three and four you’ve mostly figured “it” out and established yourself...

P&T Roundtable: Remembering Jason Kidd’s one season as a Knick as he enters the Hall of Fame

Posting and Toasting (Alex Wolfe) — He saved the best (entertainment, at least) for last Many great things in life are fleeting — orgasms, kief highs, young Grant Hill, half the shows to ever air on Adult Swim. For modern-day Knicks fans, almost all pleasures are fleeting. Perhaps no greater example was the 2012-13 Knicks season, an orgasmic blip on a 15-year stretch of basketball erectile dysfunction. Part of the Viagra that...

P&T Roundtable: Numbers the Knicks won’t retire, but should

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — These players belong in the MSG pantheon. The number 2 represents the greatest injustice in the history of the Knicks. World War II ended a little over a year before the Knicks began playing, yet they only have two Nixon-era titles to show for it. Appalling. The number 9 represents the second-greatest injustice. Only nine people have had their numbers retired by this organization, and only...

Do ‘empty stats’ exist?

Posting and Toasting (Drew Steele) — Enes Kanter needs to forget about DRE It’s an important question to ask: do empty statistics exist in basketball? Short answer: no… per se. However, you’re reading this with the intention of me expanding on the topic, so I will continue. This concept of production not leading to value on the court or team wins is a fascinating one. Whether you want to frame the discussion harshly by saying a...

Kevin Knox’s journey from disrespected NBA rookie to Benihana chef and back again

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — An odyssey. I’m not much of a video game guy, but most NBA players are, so I try to pay attention when the new year’s NBA2K player ratings come out. Oftentimes you can find a player or two who flips out over his own low rating. Such was the case with Knicks rookie Kevin Knox , who was stuck with a 74 rating — below what some of his NBA draft peers received. Knox took to Instagram to...
