New York Knicks: Posting and Toasting Blog Articles

Final: Bulls 103, Knicks 97

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Great effort, magnificent tanking. I think we can all agree that, with the notable exception of that first win in Cleveland, this was by far the most entertaining game of the year. The Melo-less Knickerbockers went into the house of horrors that is the United Center and played like goddamn howling beasts, competing well enough to win while subtly sucking just enough over the final few...

Here is Knicks president Phil Jackson defending his first big trade on Twitter

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — This is not the kind of thing we've ever experienced before as Knicks fans, both because Twitter is relatively new and because having an executive who can and does say whatever he wants is extremely new: @sheridanhoops negative, I'm okay with the Dallas deal. Tyson fits there and our 3 players, Jose, Sam, and Shane are on the court. — Phil Jackson (@PhilJackson11) December 18, 2014 ...

Marc Stein throws the Knicks into the Rajon Rondo rumors

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — The monthly "no seriously the Celtics are gonna trade Rajon Rondo this time" rumors are sizzling again, with the Mavericks now appearing the strongest contender to make a deal for Rondo. But, for our purposes, here's Marc Stein pass along that the Knicks have made that call as well: Celtics ARE talking to other teams -- most notably Knicks and Kings -- but sources say most...

Mavericks 107, Knicks 87: "Noooo don't bring Melo back just give up the game please"

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — One game closer to the lottery. OK let's get started...we've got a lot to cover tonight. Not about Tuesday night's Knicks-Mavericks game -- screw the game -- but about an email I received from P&T's own Christian Baber six hours earlier: Just met Devin Harris in soho. I asked him to take it easy on the Knicks tonight. He said no :( His friend was like, "y'all will be alright; y'all got Sam...

Let's watch the Knicks run spread pick-and-roll late against the Raptors

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — The Knicks ran several minutes of near-constant spread-pick-and-roll down the stretch of regulation Sunday against the Raptors. We know the Triangle offense has room for pick-and-roll, both in the weak-side two-man game and from the fourth option in the strong-side corner . Those plays tend to take place on one side of the floor, though, and what we saw Sunday were more centrally placed...

Andrea Bargnani, Josh McRoberts, and the legacy of "The Bargsover"

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Two men, touched by greatness. Smart lad, to slip betimes away From fields where glory does not stay And early though the laurel grows It withers quicker than the rose. - A.E. Housman Do you believe in fate? Two big men found themselves caught up on the wrong side of the NBA news cycle on Monday morning. Down in Miami, it was learned that Josh McRoberts would miss the rest...

Knicks trade season has begun

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — As of today, everyone on the Knicks is eligible to be traded. There are only three slight caveats to that fact (gleaned from  ESPN's NBA Trade Machine , which, while it's wrong about some things, is as well-organized a resource for restriction info as you'll find): - Carmelo Anthony must consent to any trade. - Cole Aldrich must consent to any trade(!) - Quincy Acy can't be traded...

Raptors 95, Knicks 90 (OT): "Knicks are immune to the Raptors' anti-tank weaponry"

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — A loss, but an interesting loss. New York Knicks basketball games have taken on a certain rhythm this season, particularly at MSG. They keep the game close through the first quarter-- despite shooting incredibly well from the field-- by giving up far too many free throws. Eventually the opponent pulls away, until New York mounts a valiant fourth-quarter charge. They trail by one/two points...

Final Score: Raptors 95, Knicks 90

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — That was a slightly different kind of Knicks game! Instead of sucking farts, falling way behind, and rallying back, the Knicks stayed right with the Raptors all night. They actually followed through for once on their professed intention to send ball-handlers toward the sidelines, and for the first time since the advent of the free throw, they got to the line more than their opponent did. ...

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — It was MRI Saturday in New York. Good evening! Now that the Knicks are back in New York, everybody got their MRIs, and the results are in. Iman Shumpert is going to be out at least a little while after dislocating his shoulder Friday night: An MRI to Iman Shumpert's left shoulder confirmed a dislocation. No surgery is necessary.

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got. Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot. Wouldn't you like to get away? What's that? You're playing the Celtics? Oh. Well, that'll help, too. Goodbye, ten-game losing streak! Goodbye, 11-game road losing streak! Goodbye, 4-20 references! The Knicks are now a robust 5-20.

Final: Knicks 101, Celtics 95

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Not a loss! Well, I guess you can't lose 'em all. The New York Knicks legitimately outplayed an NBA team on Friday night, and they held off the traditional late-game choke job long enough to defeat the Boston Celtics , 101-95. Carmelo Anthony paced New York with 22 points, five rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 39 minutes. Too much playing time for a guy who was supposed to...

Iman Shumpert dislocates shoulder, will not return

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Naturally. The New York Knicks finished the first half with a lead for once, 51-46 over the Boston Celtics ... as a result, the sacred laws of Knickdom dictated that something else had to go go wrong. That something was an injury to starting shooting guard Iman Shumpert , who is finished for the night after hurting his shoulder: Iman Shumpert (dislocated left shoulder) will not...
