New York Knicks: Posting and Toasting Blog Articles

A brokenhearted Knicks fan's plea for Emmanuel Mudiay

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Give him! I promised myself I wouldn't lose it. My rudimentary math skills told me there was very little chance the Knicks would nab the No. 1 overall pick. The fact that life-size voodoo doll Steve Mills was representing them all but assured that something terrible would happen. My spirit was ready. And then, it happened. My spirit was not at all ready. Falling to No. 4 wasn't even the...

Who's your favorite prospect likely available with the Knicks' fourth pick?

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — We said what we thought , now I'm curious about y'all. Let's assume for this exercise (though it's slightly different from ours), that Karl-Anthony Towns, Jahlil Okafor, and D'Angelo Russell are all off the board (people are already  floating rumors that this might not be the case, but they'll do that). The Knicks are on the clock. Who ya got? I might try this poll a few times between...

Top 5 Knicks Stories of the Week

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — A weird week for the Knicks, as per the norm. 1. The Knicks got the fourth pick in the draft. Probably because they refuse to keep their room clean. Even though everything is ruined, the Knicks could still make something exciting happen at number four. Harvey Araton says they just need to embrace change . 2. Isiah Thomas is still a creepy lurker in Knicks-land. The New York Liberty's...

P&T Round(ball) Table: Who are the best prospects after Towns and Okafor?

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Best of the rest! So it looks like the basketball gods crushed our hopes and dreams because the Knicks re-hired Isiah Thomas or Phil Jackson didn't show up to the lottery or something like that. There is essentially zero chance that either Karl-Anthony Towns or Jahlil Okafor will be left on the board when the Knicks pick at No. 4. The best we can hope for now is that Minnesota drafts...

An increasingly sad Knicks fan's 2015 NBA Draft lottery night diary

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — April is the cruelest month. May 19th is the cruelest night. One man's account of the ups and the inevitable down. 8:28 I'm on the couch. Pizza and wings just arrived. Pumped! This is the most exciting night the Knicks have had since...when? If you're a fan who came onboard after the Patrick Ewing era ended, is this the most exciting night of your fan life since Game 6 against the Pacers...

Missing on Karl-Anthony Towns hurts, but the possibilities are exciting

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — I feel a bit like we got dumped. This morning-after reckoning between "hey, there are plenty of fish in the sea" and "guuughhh but that was my fish" is a familiar whiff of real-life distress. I lost control of my love for Karl-Anthony Towns over the last few months. Between the versatile offensive skillset, the undeniable defensive gifts, the energy, the enthusiasm, the local upbringing, the...

The Knicks will consider trading the 4th pick, obviously

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — We knew this would be the case if the Knicks fell -- probably even if they didn't -- but here it is from people who know things (and one who decides things, although I'm honestly not sure which is which): At No. 4, expect that the Knicks draft pick will be very available in trade talks. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) May 20, 2015 Mills: "We're going to be open to a lot of things" in...

Here is the hastily filled-in information you need to know: The Knicks received the: Fourth pick The teams...

2015 NBA Draft Lottery: Let's hold each other close and see what pick the Knicks get

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — It's here. The whole reason it made sense for the Knicks to suck this season has arrived.  The details are here . All you need to know now is sometime between 8:30 and 9, people on ESPN will tell us what pick the Knicks will have in the 2015 NBA Draft. In my tummy, I'm terrified. A top draft pick is just about the best asset available, and the Knicks can use it to cheaply add someone...

What picks could the Knicks get and what are their odds? Combinations of numbered ping-pong balls are drawn out of a big machine. There are 1,000 possible combinations.

Would it be the end of the world if the Knicks pick outside the top 2?

Posting and Toasting (MattRW) — No, it wouldn't! Okay, it probably would be, since that would mean no Karl-Anthony Towns. But just humor me. Now that we know  Steve Mills will be representing the Knicks at the lottery (tonight!), it's time to start coming to terms with the idea that the team will not be picking first overall. There's an 80.1% chance New York doesn't pick first, so the basketball gods would need to...

Langston Galloway named to All-Rookie second team

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Hey, cool! NBA announces All-Rookie teams: pic.twitter.com/2D4JnbiDCE — Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) May 18, 2015 Galloway's numbers flagged a bit as the season progressed, but for an undrafted dude plucked out the D-League in January, regular production,  effective defense , and  a couple big shots make for a promising enough season. The next step is to  not end up like...

Even in Houston, Pablo Prigioni sneaks his way into our hearts

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The Rockets suck; Pablo doesn't. This is a story about love. It's also a story about the Houston Rockets , which feels a bit odd. Nobody likes the Rockets, you see. Even their own fans are probably going through the motions -- rooting out of sense of custom and obligation for this clanking assembly of moving parts, an engine sputtering through the postseason, stripping the hallowed game of...

Let's remove our spleens so the Knicks will get the first pick

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Now that the lottery odds have been decided, P&T is in full cultic religion mode. Occasionally in the lead-up to the May 19th lottery, I will ask you to appease the basketball gods with me. Previ ously,  we froze envelopes ,  sent letters to bad Knicks draft picks , and exploited the good fortune of mothers . Today, the ultimate tribute. I have instructed you to slit the...
