Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Hint: It won't be Travis Outlaw The Knicks practiced on Saturday -- balls were shot, triangles were formed. Let's start with the hold-outs: #Knicks say Amare (recovery day) did not practice. Bargnani (hamstring) and Travis Outlaw also did not practice. — Ian Begley (@IanBegley) October 18, 2014 Travis Outlaw apparently has a mild Achilles strain, but I like the fact that it isn't...

Friday Cownose Rays

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Links! Hi! The Knicks don't play at all this weekend because preseason scheduling is odd. The Knicks' inactivity doesn't stop you from READING, though*. *Update: My lawyers have informed me this is, in fact, untrue.

Westchester: A Thanasis Antetokounmpo prequel series

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Before there was New York, there was Westchester (Not literally, of course). Prequels and origin stories are all the rage on TV nowadays. FOX is pulling down big ratings with their new show "Gotham," which tells the story of fresh-faced detective Jim Gordon and pre-pubescent Bruce Wayne. I watched the show a few times -- wasn't really my cup of tea. Fortunately, I caught wind of a pilot for...

After some initial uncertainty, the New York Knicks plan to pick up the third-year contract option for guard Shane Larkin , league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Knicks have been satisfied with Larkin, 22, in the preseason, and will guarantee the $1.67 million on his contract for the 2015-16 season. The deadline for...

Flowers for Knickerbockers: An introduction to mindfulness training

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — That's telekinesis, holmes! It is said that we humans use only 10 percent of their brain's capacity. Is that number bullshit? Probably...but if a number is repeated enough times in enough sci-fi movie trailers, does it not attain a certain kind of truth? More importantly, what percentage of the human brain must be activated in order to produce this: or this: The New York Knicks ,...

Point/Counterpoint: Did Amar'e Stoudemire bathe in red wine?

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Loading Recovery Day! Red Wine Bath !! #Kinging #Blessed #Hebrews Getting ready for the eighth day feast. View on Instagram Point: That can't possibly be red wine, right? Counterpoint: That does appear to be red wine. The color, the bubbles...that's wine. Point: Bathing in red wine is not a thing. Counterpoint: Bathing in red wine is apparently  a thing . Point: Nobody would...

Let's watch the Knicks big men make great Triangle passes!

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — The Knicks don't know how to run the Triangle offense competently yet, but they've got pieces. Angles. Vertices. HYPOTENUSES. One piece we saw repeatedly last night was use of a backdoor option with direct passes to the  weak-side high ("pinch") post. (Update: Now that I think about it, I believe what follows qualifies as the "blind pig" option of the Triangle meant to beat pressure.) First,...

Preseason: Knicks 84, 76ers 77- "I like the passing even if they can't convert."

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — The Sixers, especially in their incomplete preseason form, suck. The Knicks may or may not suck themselves, but the Sixers definitely suck, and I suspect that had something to do with New York playing their best basketball of the preseason. "Best" is relative, since the Knicks still performed poorly, but, like Bronx Chica, I saw a lot of fine passing, even if it produced more misses and...

Preseason Final Score: Knicks 84, 76ers 77

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — The Sixers are quite bad, which is great! The Knicks ran their sets more fluidly than they have all preseason, and did a LOT more good passing than they did good shooting. Even New York's defense appeared to have its moments guarding Philadelphia lineups that include exactly zero people who can do things. Carmelo Anthony was relatively quiet in his return to the Carrier Dome, but Iman...

Tuesday Talking Catfish

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Links! Hi! The Knicks play a preseason SEGABABA tonight for some reason. They'll face the Sixers in Syracuse. Carmelo Anthony back home! Michael Carter-Willia-- oh no, he's hurt. Anyway, that'll be weird. Here are some things to read: - They call the Striped Raphael catfish the "talking catfish" because it makes little grunting and squeaking sounds when out of water. I hope it's not...
