New York Knicks: Knicker Blogger Blog Articles

Jackson, the Checketts Doctrine, and the 2015 Draft

Knicker Blogger (Z) — “With the 26th pick in the 1994 NBA draft, the New York Knicks select Charlie Ward from Florida State University.” These words, spoken on June 29th, 1994 by then-commissioner David Stern, represent the end of an epoch in New York, and the beginning of a new science of roster-building. It wasn’t because the Knicks were drafting a franchise player, or even their point guard of the future. It was...

At About.com: Phil Jackson Logs On To Twitter, Yells At Clouds.

Knicker Blogger (Robert Silverman) — At About Knicks, a few brief words on Phil Jackson’s Sideshow Bob-stepping-on-a-rake Twittering. Back on May 10th, the Knicks’ Grand Poobah caused a bit of a media kerfluffle when he decided to troll the three point-heavy teams in the playoffs, asking “NBA analysts give me some diagnostics on how 3pt oriented teams are faring this playoffs…seriously, how’s it...

The Anti-Tank Cranks Must Be Stopped

Knicker Blogger (DCrockett17) — Clearly I have been asleep, because somewhere along the way the “Tanking is an offense to the game!” crowd just took over column inches, airwaves, and bandwidth. They seem to be yelling a lot louder than the “embrace the tank” crowd. When Kevin Pelton, as reasonable a hoops analyst as you’ll find, is pulling out the virtual slide rule to assess the relative merits...

Screw the basketball gods! Embrace your inner hoops atheist.

Knicker Blogger (DCrockett17) — So the Knicks were the only team to end up worse off than regular season record would dictate. Of friggin’ course. Because LOLKnicks, right? The draft with the best looking pair of bigs to come out together in a long time, and New York appears to be on the outside looking in. It’s not like we need low post scoring or rim protection. That’s it for you basketball gods....

The Basketball Gods Must Be Crazy – The Knicks Got the #4 Pick

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — We’ll have more coverage of this Wednesday morning by everyone’s friend, David Crockett, but it just occurred to me that we probably should have a quick thread on the event itself – the Knicks falling to the #4 slot in the NBA Draft, the only team in the entire draft to fall from their scheduled draft slot, with the Lakers rising from #4 to take the Knicks’ #2 slot. Due...

If the Basketball Gods are Willing and the Creek Don’t Rise: The 2015 NBA Lottery Live Thread

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — The Knicks enter tonight’s lottery (8:30 PM Eastern on ESPN) with a question begging to be answered – “Do the basketball gods love Phil Jackson more than they hate James Dolan?” Phil Jackson has lived a charmed life in the NBA. He won two titles as a player, then won six titles with Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and the Bulls and then five titles with Kobe Bryan,...

Isiah Thomas To Be Named President Of The New York Liberty

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Robert Silverman has the scoop: Oh good. That’s just wonderful. That’s just peachy. You know what, this is as much our fault as anything. The moment we think this organization and this useless, soiled baby wipe of an owner is inching towards competence, he does this. This isn’t just a matter of letting a bumbling, fool like Zeke, a gentleman that hass botched each and every...

Poll: Jackson Year 2 Record

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — From the New York Times: Pressed on what he meant, Jackson said he hoped the Knicks could make the playoffs — which he also predicted last fall before blowing up an underachieving roster in midseason — though not as the Nets did this season, with a losing record. “I hope it’s not at the extent that well, we just made the playoffs and we’re not 35 and 47,” he said. “I want to see us having a...

Melo And The Knicks: How The Savior Complex Has Ruined Everything

I’m writing this to inform you that, unfortunately for you and millions of Knick fans, you’re stuck here. I’d like to use an analogy to make your situation clear: you’re like a woman with the savior complex who’s in a bad relationship. You have...

Why “Why Karl-Anthony Towns Is a Lock for the New York Knicks with the No. 1 Pick” Is A Load Of …

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Bleacher Report, although more legitimate today than previously, still relies on salacious headlines to draw readers in. Take for instance this vlog titled “Why Karl-Anthony Towns Is a Lock for the New York Knicks with the No. 1 Pick”. I watched the video hoping there was some legitimate reason the Knicks were locked in to Towns. Was it an insider who has first hand knowledge of...

Knicks @ Wizards or..”It’s a total wash(ington).”

Knicker Blogger (Thomas B.) — New York visits Washington as the season draws to a close.  The Wiz have played down to everyone of late.  The Knicks need to keep losing to hold on to the top draft position. So it should surprise nobody that we could win.

This Is Why The Knicks Have No Hope

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — As I said previously, I have little faith that this Knicks team will be good in the future. You might come to this conclusion from a number of indicators. You could look at their 14-53 record this season, tied for worst in the league. You could look at Phil Jackson’s tenure and there’s plenty of red flags there. The botching of the Steve Kerr hiring. The questionable hiring of...
