New York Knicks: Posting and Toasting Blog Articles

Tuesday Houndfish

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Links! Good afternoon! The sun is shining and the air is warm, so let's stay inside and nose through trivial Knicks links together. - The  houndfish is a species of needlefish. The photo above is probably of a different  needlefish species; I just liked the photo so much that I went with it. Houndfish, like all needlefish, have long, pointy beaks. They also really like light and will...

J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and the Knicks' (non-existent) guard problem

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Are the Knicks too heavy at the wing? Not if history is any judge. At the end of the 2013-14 season, Phil Jackson made perhaps the boldest statement by any president since Kennedy challenged the United States to land a man on the moon: He told Raymond Felton he would be traded by the end of the summer. And just as NASA did for Kennedy, the Knicks made Jackson's dream a reality by...

The Knicks will work out Dahntay Jones

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Again. The Knicks have a pretty full roster as things stand. Including the non-guaranteed contracts of Shannon Brown and Jeremy Tyler , 15 men are under contract. Someone (one of the non-guaranteeds, or perhaps Wayne Ellington ) will probably be cut so second-rounder Cleanthony Early can sign, and it would take another cut or uneven trade to create any more room. Phil Jackson ...

SummerHornets 82, SummerKnicks 79

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — The SummerKnicks five-game win streak was unceremoniously halted by those pesky SummerHornets, and our SummerChampionship aspirations were saltily dashed. Hey team, whats crappenin'? I had a bad feeling going into this game, and the SummerKnicks didn't disappoint to disappoint.  There was something about that flat effort the SummerHornets put forth and the drubbing we gave them on Monday. I...

Friday Largehead Hairtails

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Links! Good...aw shit, it's already almost the evening out east...well, good that to you. The Knicks don't play today because today is for the LOSERS. They'll face the Hornets Saturday at 4 PM EST. For now, let's link: - Nothing's particularly exciting about the largehead hairtail -- just a great name. There are so many fish that people just stopped taking the time to name them. -  Phil...

SummerKnicks 80, D-League Select 73

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — The Knicks are headed to the next round of the Summer League playoffs. Yes yes! After a tentative start, the SummerKnicks rallied then plowed ahead to take a playoff win over the scrappy D-League select. I want to leave, so this'll be brief. Some notes! - Thanks, I assume, to the video scouting of Dylan Murphy (I'm serious), the Select blew up damn near all the Knicks' early sets and...

J.R. Smith went on "First Take"

Posting and Toasting (WScottD) — J.R. stopped by to chat about his summer, last season, and the coming Knicks season We haven't heard much from J.R. Smith yet this summer. Unlike much of the roster, he's been set in place, uninvolved in trade speculation and under contract for two more years. So, while there was drama about Anthony's free agency, analysis of trading Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton, the Knicks ' draft...

Hey, look, it's the Knicks Christmas jersey

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Kinda cool! Hi! I'm awake. I am totally awake. The Knicks don't play in Summer League again until Thursday night at 10 PM EST against either Denver or Dylan Murphy's D-League Select. In the mean time,  Uni Watch just leaked the NBA Christmas jerseys , and they're actually kinda cool this season. ENHANCE: Anything would be better than  last year's (no sleeves!), but I actually like...

How will Carmelo Anthony's contract affect the Knicks in the future?

Posting and Toasting (MattRW) — A comparison of the pay cut Melo took to other possible contracts and how each option would affect the Knicks' cap. As you probably know by now, Carmelo Anthony has returned to the Knicks on a  5 year, $124 million deal with an  Early Termination Option after year 4 . Frank Isola also says, with the requisite snark, that Melo has a  no-trade clause . I'm sure the first thought in many...

The Knicks have signed Jason Smith

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — That was quick! Well, we were just talking about who the Knicks might like to sign with their mini-MLE, and there it goes: Free agent Jason Smith has signed a one-year, $3.3M deal with the New York Knicks, league source tells RealGM. — Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 15, 2014 I am fine with this. Jason Smith is a solid, regular big man. He's had pretty serious knee problems,...

Who will the Knicks pursue next in free agency?

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — There's not much money left to spend. The Knicks have signed two free agents: Carmelo Anthony rejoined the Knicks on a contract paying him about $122 million over 5 years, and Cole Aldrich came back for I assume is a minimum contract, taking a huge pay cut off the max he deserved. Soon, we will have some posts about who we think the Knicks *should* pursue. For now, I want to empty out...

SummerKnicks 95, SummerHornets 72

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — The Knicks are a Summer League powerhouse. My favorite basketball team is the New York-Las Vegas Summer Knicks . Posting and Toasting is a blog about the New York-Las Vegas SummerKnicks. Seriously, we quickly got the vibe that the Knicks' Vegas entrant would play ball this year, and it's now evident-- especially in person-- that these bros really enjoy each other's company *and* take...

Chucker's paradise: The Tim Hardaway Summer League experience

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Tim Hardaway likes to shoot. So far, he's loving Vegas. In the surreal world of the Las Vegas Summer League, a player's status can change dramatically from year to year. Last summer's callow rookie role player can turn into a squad's de facto star...if only for two wild weeks out on the desert. It's always fascinating to see how sophomores react to this sudden (and usually very temporary)...

Phil Jackson: Carmelo Anthony took the pay cut the Knicks wanted

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — We still don't know exactly how much that was, but okay. Oddly, we still haven't seen exact financial details for Carmelo Anthony's new five-year contract with the Knicks.  Last we heard , it's somewhere between $120 million and the full mega-max of $129 million. That is a modest pay cut (once we have exact numbers, MattRW will flesh out the effect), but Phil Jackson told reporters Sunday...

Carmelo Anthony announces he's returning to the Knicks

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — On his website! Carmelo Anthony's website splash page  just turned into this LeBron-style open letter (though much more concise!): So yeah, I think the rumors are true: Carmelo Anthony will continue to be a Knick. Hi, Melo! I like you and I look forward to watching you continue playing basketball for the Knicks, especially with Derek Fisher's triangle in place to accentuate his...
