SNY.com: Takeaways from Knicks’ 104-99 win over Wizards, including RJ Barrett’s first preseason game

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Ian Begley was one of the very few Knicks beat writers to actually have a game recap of the Knicks’ preseason debut : MORRIS EJECTED: Marcus Morris was ejected 13 seconds into the second half for doing something you don’t see often. First, he appeared to hit Justin Anderson, his defender, with an elbow when he swung his arms through to create space. That happens regularly in the...

NY Post: Knicks great returns to drop some knowledge on RJ Barrett

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Outside of Carmelo Anthony, Bernard King is really the last time that the Knicks had a young wing with as much promise as RJ Barrett (and King wasn’t even that young, as he was 26 by the time he joined the Knicks, but guys obviously entered the league later back in those days), so I guess it’s good to get them together. From Marc Berman: After Thursday’s practice, Barrett sat for...

NY Daily News: ‘Dog’ Marcus Morris will bring accountability to Knicks

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — I thought Mills and Perry were fairly embarrassing on Media Day, and I really don’t want to harp on it, so I choose instead to spotlight a Knick who had a really good Media Day, namely Marcus Morris. From Stefan Bondy: Marcus Morris is a bit of an oddity on the Knicks active roster in that he’s been to the playoffs. There’s only three of them. Perhaps more so than any other Knick,...

NY Post: This looks nothing like the Frank Ntilikina who has confounded Knicks

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — I love how there’s not even any new information about Frank to share, but Berman still managed to put out this article. Incredibly, Frank Ntilikina, the Knicks’ 2017 lottery pick, is now the team’s longest-tenured player, along with Damyean Dotson. Ntilikina played like he wants to stay that way when he led the French National Team to a bronze medal in the FIBA World Cup earlier this...

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — It’s Deadspin, so feel free not to pay it much mind, but I’m so desperate for Knicks-related content, it’s the best I’ve got. A Reddit user posted a video of Dennis Smith Jr. working out and his shot looked…different.

SNY.com: Knicks’ Dennis Smith Jr. says helping RJ Barrett win Rookie of the Year is one of his season goals

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Ian Begley parsed an excellent interview by Chris Henderson with Dennis Smith Jr. over at SNY. The key quote is Smith talking about how important it is for him to help RJ Barrett win Rookie of the Year, “I’m treating that as one of my focal points just to help him win Rookie of the Year. And whatever I can do, I’m willing to do it. It’s important for us and it’s...

SNY.com: 5 things that need to happen for Knicks season to be considered a success

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — This Rafael Canton piece isn’t exactly reinventing the wheel, but hey, he’s talking about the Knicks, and that’s what we’re all sort of desperate for, right? I figure that I’ll just post his five things and you can read the above piece to see his explanations and I guess everyone here can share the five things that YOU think that needs to happen for this season to...

ESPN.com: Frank Ntilikina Single-Handedly Snaps Team USA’s 58-Game Winning Streak

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Okay, that is not the actual headline, but I think that we all know that that was implied. France has defeated Team USA 89-79 in a FIBA World Cup quarterfinal game at Dongguan, China. The loss ends Team USA’s 58-game winning streak in international tournaments with NBA players on the roster. Their last loss was against Greece in the semifinals at the 2006 FIBA World Championship.

9/11: Knicks Reflect on the Tragedy

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — It has been 18 years since 9/11 and the Knicks, as you might imagine, have honored the victims of the tragic terrorist attack many times in the years since. I thought I would share some memories of 9/11 from Mark Jackson, who was in his second season of his return to the Knicks at the time, as well as then-Knicks coach, Jeff Van Gundy, who resigned in December 2001. Here’s Mark Jackson,...

Yahoo!: Enes Kanter: Players are scared to play for Knicks because of owner James Dolan

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — I don’t know, man, I don’t even want to share it, but there’s so little Knicks news out there, that I guess I have to go with some Enes Kanter nonsense, as quoted by Yahoo! Sports’ Ryan Young: “Not many people know that, but players talk. From different teams, they talk,” Kanter said on Bleacher Report’s The Full 48 podcast. “I’m not blaming anybody. I had an amazing...

NY Post: This is the Frank Ntilikina the Knicks want to see

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Marc Berman writes about Frank Ntilikina’s FIBA adventures so far… Frank Ntilikina is finally fulfilling his potential. Of course, it’s just in China at the FIBA World Cup with the French national team against the likes of Germany, Jordan and the Dominican Republic. But it’s a start, at least, as the Knicks’ 2017 lottery pick attempts to create a long-term future in New York. Three...

NY Daily News: The Knicks’ new strategy, whatever it is, requires some explaining

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Stefan Bondy actually talks about the Knicks a bit: It’s hard to blame the Knicks for going radio silent since free agency. Sometimes it’s easier to avoid the uncomfortable questions. But frankly, the team’s new strategy, whatever it is, requires some explaining. It certainly puts coach David Fizdale in a difficult situation. The Knicks had a curious offseason, leaving success, or failure,...

SNY: Knicks Q&A: Julius Randle looks ahead to 2019 season

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Ian Begley continues his fine work at SNY with a great Q&A with Julius Randle. Some choice quotes… Speaking on Mitchell Robinson: Bobby Portis said in an interview with the New York Post that he expects to come off the bench behind Robinson this season. So Randle should play alongside Robinson regularly this season. He’s looking forward to it. “I’m excited man, that...
