Thanasis Antetokounmpo: A Knicksplainer

Knicker Blogger (Angus Crawford) — As part of the Knicks’ summer renovation, perhaps the most beloved (if not the most important addition) of the bevy of 2nd Rounders is the shiny, aromatic coat of varnish they snagged with the 51st pick, Thanasis Antetokounmpo. Like most, you might know little about the twenty-two year old, save for the fact that he is the older sibling of Giannis, the Milwaukee Bucks’ gangly,...

Summer League Recap: Hornets 82, Knicks 79

Knicker Blogger (Chase Thomas) — The SummerKnicks are undefeated no more after falling 82-79 to the SummerHornets Saturday afternoon. Like the majority of Summer League games, this game wasn’t pretty. TGe  shot a gruesome 22.7 percent from beyond the arc and 34.9 percent overall, but still managed to keep it close thanks to a fairly dominant starting-five unit. The Good: Tim Hardaway Jr. led all scores (yes, again) with...

More Summer League Thoughts: What About the Defense?

Knicker Blogger (DCrockett17) — Most us expected to see D-Fish trot out some version of Tex Winter’s triangle in Summer League. But coming into Vegas his defensive philosophy was less clear. The team’s summer league performance has brought a couple things into focus. 1) More straight-up man with less switching. Keep in mind that you’re likely to see pretty vanilla defensive scheming in Summer League for any...

Jason Smith: A Knicksplainer

Knicker Blogger (Taylor Armosino) — Yesterday, the Knicks signed former New Orleans Pelicans big man Jason Smith to a one-year, $3.3 million contract using their taxpayer mid-level exception. Smith has long been a useful player, but has battled injuries throughout his career. A knee injury wiped out his 2008-2009 season entirely and he’s played just 122 games over the past three seasons. Having said that, given the wages...

6-on-5 Roundtable: Melo and Beyond

Knicker Blogger (Jonathan Topaz) — The Knicks and Carmelo Anthony agreed to a contract this weekend, reportedly a 5-year deal between $122-$129 million. The deal — which will color every move the organization and new president Phil Jackson make over the next half-decade — was such big news that we had to break out the roundtable. An illegal roundtable in basketball terms, in fact — we’re going 6-on-5 to discuss whether the...

The Knickerblogger Podcase, Episode VI: Andy Glockner

Knicker Blogger (Robert Silverman) — Today, we’re joined by Andy Glockner, the Executive Editor of The Cauldron, a great new site featuring lots of awesome writers, many of whom you’ll be quite familiar with already. Prior to our chat, I assumed that Andy and I would be at the opposite ends of the spectrum with regards to our opinion of Carmelo Anthony, and I feared that knives would be thrown at one at one another...

Melo’s a Knick

Knicker Blogger (Robert Silverman) — The essay just dropped on Melo’s site making it official. From a pure writing perspective, it’s not as good as LeBron’s–and just because of the timing, it feels like he’s cranking out a tepid knockoff, a sub-par copy of the King’s speech–but then again, Melo didn’t have the clout to enlist the great Lee Jenkins as his ghostwriter. I really wish...

Summer League Recap: Knicks 71, Blazers 69

Knicker Blogger (Chase Thomas) — Despite shooting paltry 34.3 percent from the field and 27.8 percent from three, but the New York SummerKnicks eked out a less-than-pretty 71-69 victory over a Portland SummerBlazers squad that featured a lot of guys that will be in their regular season rotation. The Good: Tim Hardaway Jr. is a 3-point gunner, we know that, but Summer League Hardaway Jr. is a totally different beast. The...

A Few Thoughts on Knicks Vegas Summer League Game 1

Knicker Blogger (DCrockett17) — As I probably won’t get to see any more Summer League games because of travel, I’ll take this opportunity to read way too much into New York’s first game. My proviso about pre-season in any sport is that it’s data, and all data tells you something. The trick is to figure what it tells you and what it doesn’t. Summer league can tell you if a player has NBA...

While Knicks Wait for Carmelo Anthony to Make Up His Mind, Cole Aldrich is “Coming Home”

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Lamar Odom’s attempt at an NBA comeback came to a screeching halt before ever playing even a scrimmage for the New York Knicks, as Phil Jackson revealed today that “Unfortunately, Lamar was unable to uphold the standards to return as an NBA player.We found it necessary to free up the roster spot” (might I once again note how pleased I am to have a Knick executive who is...
