Is it Worth it for the Knicks to Spend a Draft Pick for Masai Ujiri?

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — There’s been a buzz on the internet about the Knicks acquiring the Toronto Raptors VP Masai Ujiri for their front office vacancy. Poaching an executive from another team isn’t illegal in sports, as there usually requires some kind of compensation for the deed. In May the Raptors acquired a second round pick from Orlando, because the Magic hired Jeff Weltman to be their president....

Knicks 2017 Summer League Roster Breakdown

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — With the Knicks summer league right around the corner, I thought I’d look at some of the lesser known prospects and give my opinion on them. Jamel Artis SF, 6-7, 23 Artis is an empty scorer. Other than scoring and a moderate amount of rebounding (6.7 reb/40), he adds literally nothing else. With 0.7 stl/40 and 0.5 blk/40 he will get roasted on defense. On offense he can hit from downtown...

Conversations about what was best for the team’s future between Jackson and Knicks owner James Dolan accelerated this week when the franchise decided it would not buy out embattled forward Carmelo Anthony, sources said. Jackson,...

Knicks Draft Frank Ntilikina #8, Damyean Dotson #44, and Ognjen Jaramaz #58

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — The New York Knicks walked into the draft with the league abuzz about the prospect of the franchise doing something drastic and frankly devastating stupid. However the evening was a humdrum affair for New Yorkers, as the team selected two guards, and more importantly didn’t trade away their prize jewel. Let’s overlook the Porzingis-Jackson kerfuffle for now and concentrate on the...

Everything Will Be All Right…Right? – The 2017 NBA Draft Thread

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — No matter what, tonight will be an interesting night. Who will the Knicks pick with the #8 pick? Will they trade for a second (or even a third!) first round pick? Will they trade up in the draft to get another second rounder? Will they trade their current two second rounders for one second rounder higher in the second round? Will they, you know, trade that one guy? We will likely find out the...

Roundtable: 2017 Knicks Pre-Draft Discussion

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — The player taken well before the Knicks’ #8 pick that will be a bust… KURYLO: I’m going to go with De’Aaron Fox. I like his defense, but he just strikes me as a bit inconsistent and his outside shooting is a red flag. Fox’s ability to drive and throw alley-oops hints at a game that is more style than substance, and I’m concerned what will happen against more athletic and more skilled...

Solving the NBA’s Tanking Problem

Knicker Blogger (DCrockett17) — Tanking seems to be on everyone’s mind in the NBA these days. Like many sports problems, “tanking” is not singular but an amorphous cluster of problems all housed under one term. The term isn’t hard to define–it’s when a team has a strategic incentive to lose–but it lacks a precise scope. That makes it hard to settle on what exactly is included when...

Joakim Noah Suspended 20 Games for Worst Performance Enhancement Drugs in the World

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — From The Vertical, the NBA is suspending Joakim Noah 20 games for violating the NBA’s anti-drug policy. According to Woj: Noah tested positive for an over-the-counter supplement that is prohibited under the outgoing Collective Bargaining Agreement, league sources said. Noah, 32, is expected to serve 10 games of the suspension to finish out the 2016-17 regular season and 10 games to start...

R.I.P. John Andariese

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — We lost “Johnny Hoops” today, the great former Knicks announcer, John Andariese (whose last name was so tricky that I already spelled it incorrectly on Twitter), today. For Knick fans of the 1990s, we were not only in a Golden Age, but we all KNEW we were in a Golden Age, as we had John Andariese and Marv Albert on MSG with Mike Breen and Clyde Frazier on the radio. Breen and...

Carmelo Anthony’s Memory

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — When I was a child, my grandfather would pick me up from school every Wednesday. We’d walk over to the local Off Track Betting office, pick up some horse racing sheets, sit in a mostly-empty bar, and pour over the data. “It’s not the horses,” my grandfather insisted “it’s the jockeys.” That was his system, the jockeys controlled how hard the beasts...

How is Porzingis Doink?

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — On this blog, there’s been some good debate on the growth and potential of Kristaps Porzingis. I thought I’d dip a little into the stats to get a better understanding. Porzingis’ detractors point to his disappointing rebounding numbers as a red flag in his growth. Per 36 minutes, his rebounds have dropped from his rookie rate of 9.3 to 7.8. The decline on the defensive...

PHI 98, NYK 97 — The Knicks Suck

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — This has to be the Knicksiest last 48 hours. Well maybe not the Knicksiest, as they didn’t trade any draft picks for an overpaid and over-the-hill scorer in that time. But it’s hard to argue that it hasn’t been a Knickly two days. It started when New York drops a home game to the Pelicans, competing like an actual NBA team for a half, before playing a third quarter that saw a...

NBA.com: Derrick Rose fined by Knicks for missing game vs. Pelicans

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — NBA.com reports: Last night, the Knicks hosted the New Orleans Pelicans with hopes of reversing a recent funk in which New York had lost seven of its last eight games. Not only did the Knicks fall last night to the Pelicans, 110-96, but they did so without starting point guard Derrick Rose. Rose was absent from the team for the game for reasons that were unclear, and the team responded today...
