New York Knicks: Posting and Toasting Blog Articles

The case for keeping Frank Ntilikina

Posting and Toasting (BennyBuckets71) — He’s got skills, potential and youth The 2018-19 season was one long drawn out sophomore slump for Frank Ntilikina , and there’s a foreboding feel about the way his campaign concluded, but the franchise should show restraint and retain him because has already proven he can be a valuable NBA player. Haters will point to Ntilikina ’s negligible statistics and say the 20-year-old...

Steve Mills speaks, promises not to sign the wrong players in free agency

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Sounds good. Knicks president didn’t speak over the last two months of the craptacular 2018-19, but now he’s ready to tangle once more with the New York press, including interviews both on the radio and with The New York Post. Much of the interview with The Post was simply more of a Knicks front office member belaboring the point that yes, New York is the greatest city in the world and...

A look back at the 2018-19 Knicks offense, part two: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Posting and Toasting (Buffalo 66) — When and why things didn’t work. Much hullabaloo has been made about the state of the Knicks ’ offense this year. We’ve all heard or asked variations of the following questions: Is it too isolation-heavy? Is there a system? Where is the ball and player movement? Is David Fizdale — pissed off that EA doesn’t make NBA Street anymore — just trying to get Trier to bust out a Level 2...

Know The Prospect: Bol Bol

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Could June see the Knicks land a Kristaps Porzingis-like talent? Four years ago, the Knicks were lucky to land a freakishly tall, freakishly athletic big man with freakish range, skills and moves in Kristaps Porzingis. But this season’s push-the-red-button re-do that shipped KP to Shark Tank left an 87-inch hole in New York’s foundation. Could Bol Bol, ex-NBAer Manute’s non-minute...

REPORT: Certain Knicks weren’t too fond of Allonzo Trier’s iso-happy game

Posting and Toasting (BennyBuckets71) — Is this truly troublesome, or just unavoidable drama after a lost season? Although the regular season is mercifully over, the drama surrounding New York’s only playoff-less basketball team never ends, with the New York Post reporting on Monday that some Knicks did not enjoy playing with Allonzo Trier this year because of his iso-heavy style of play. The report came by way of Marc...

Choose your own Knickventure: Real-life salary decisions that will shape the 2019-20 Knicks offseason

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Take it to the polls! Adios, 2018-19 season. Love, unsurprisingly, tore us apart again. No surprise if you’ve been following along for the past few generations, but that ache can always finds a new pit in your heart. “Ever onward” should be the mindset. Knicks players and management seem staid on the path to build as many small successes as they can stack up. New York currently sits on...

Patrick Ewing will represent the Knicks on the dais during the draft lottery

Posting and Toasting (BennyBuckets71) — Hopefully the Big Fella can help turn the karmic tide in New York If your freezer isn’t already filled with envelopes, the time to stock it would be now, as the Knicks revealed on Saturday that former number one overall pick Patrick Ewing will represent the team during the draft lottery on May 14. The announcement, which Ewing himself hinted at a few days ago , is a breath of fresh air...

A look back at the concepts that structured the 2018-19 Knicks offense

Posting and Toasting (Buffalo 66) — Developing an understanding of what made the Knicks tick on offense this season Much hullabaloo has been made about the state of the Knicks ’ offense this year. We’ve all heard or asked variations of the following questions: Is it too isolation-heavy? Is there a system? Where is the ball and player movement? Is David Fizdale — pissed off that EA doesn’t make NBA Street anymore — just trying...

2014-15 vs. 2018-19: Which Knicks squad sucked more?

Posting and Toasting (The Ghost of Kristaps Past) — Both finished 17-65, but which one was worse? Our New York Knickerbockers put the cherry on top of a shit sundae of an 82-game regular season on Wednesday night in a 115-89 drubbing at the hands of the playoff-bound Detroit Pistons . The game really wasn’t even as close as that score suggests, and the competitive portion was finished right around the first TV timeout of the game. But...

Pistons 115, Knicks 89: “The end is here”

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — The season is over. The tanking, too? Notes: No Blake Griffin for Detroit with everything on the line. No problem. Andre Drummond stepped up for 20 points and 15 rebounds. Hot start for the big fella. #PistonsNow x @RocketFiber ...

Pistons - Like 30 more points than the Knicks, Knicks - Not a lot: Scenes from it being all over, finally

Posting and Toasting (Alex Wolfe) — We made it! We did it! Game 82 is in the books. And, shit, what a Game 82 it was. I’m not even waiting for the final score. This was a slaughter, which basically sums up the Knicks ’ season in a nutshell. The Pistons might be a fringe playoff team, but a fringe playoff team with something to play for is easily 10 times better than this current Knicks team. Honestly, there was almost...

Final Game Preview: Knicks vs Pistons, 4/10/2019

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Bless this mess. Boy, howdy. It’s the end, friend . I’ve tried to be a decent distraction hanging out in the preview pit. Painting a dystopian basketball hellscape. With any luck it brings you the moment of levity that sucks it’s teeth at the Knick fan’s reality. Hopefully it doesn’t remind you of that social medium that rarely asks how you’re doing and constantly pulls you to appreciate...

Knicks 96, Bulls 86: “Bullet dodged”

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — NOT THE WORST TEAM IN FRANCHISE HISTORY!!! Knicks. Bulls. A rivalry transcending time. Subtract Zach LaVine, Lauri Markkanen, Otto Porter Jr., Denzel Valentine, Wendell Carter Miranda Jr., Kris Dunn, Chandler Hutchinson, Mario Hezonja, Emmanuel Mudiay, Frank Ntilikina, Lance Thomas, Noah Vonleh, Allonzo Trier, and Kadeem Allen, though, and whaddya got?

Knicks 96, Bulls 86: Scenes from One Last Dance (read: Win) for the 2018-19 Knicks

Posting and Toasting (Alex Wolfe) — It wasn’t pretty, but this was probably the last dub of the year The Knicks won tonight. That’s probably the last time these fingers will be typing that until at least October of this year — the Knicks have a Pistons squad playing for their playoff lives coming to the Garden on a SEGABABA tomorrow. But for tonight, the Knicks beat the Windy City Chicago Bulls relatively handily,...

Game Preview: Knicks at Bulls, 4/9/2019

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Knicks and Bulls hit the stage one last time. As the regular season draws to a close these two stumbling teams collide one last time to spill their last tank of oil over the depleting glacier of sadness. This cruel and trying season has sucked the life out of a once thriving rivalry. Now both teams hope to limp over the end line with the hope of a rebirth that could set fire to this...
