Round(ball) Table: Opening night starting lineup draft!

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — One man, one vote, five players. One thing is certain right now: We have no idea who is going to start the regular-season opener on Wednesday against the Chicago Bulls . More importantly, Derek Fisher probably doesn't know who is going to start...and he is the dude who actually has control over such things. An unsettled lineup can be as much a blessing as a curse. I take that back -- it's...

Here's why the Knicks signed a guy they're going to cut almost immediately

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — So, to explain this: Oct. 23-NY Knickerbockers President Phil Jackson announced today that the team has signed center Jordan Vandenberg. pic.twitter.com/Q4d4xlsQWQ — NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) October 23, 2014 The Knicks have to cut their roster down to 15 soon, but can hold up to 20 men until then. They currently have 19, and with 15 of those guaranteed, it's obvious who they're...

Preseason- Knicks 103, Wizards 100: "We won a close game"

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — At times an ugly affair, but this popsicle didn't melt. It must be getting cold. It must be about that time. The NBA's opening night is so close, I can taste it! Going into Wednesday's game, the Knicks slapped down another new starting lineup, one we hadn't seen up to this point. It appears Coach Fisher is trying to get everyone reps in every situation worth considering. It wasn't a game...

Preseason Final Score: Knicks 103, Wizards 100

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Hey, that was actually fun! Weird 'n' sloppy, but fun. And the Knicks got a couple big shots and a stop down the stretch! Here's Carmelo Anthony's game-winner,  via @gifdsports : That felt almost like a real game, so I think the Knicks should get a real win for it. Just one man's opinion. Our friend stingy will have a recap later! Good job, Knicks!

Things we learned from Phil Jackson's candid comments on every Knick

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Phil Jackson gave Charley Rosen an extended comment on *every single* Knicks player from training camp. It's interesting and unlike anything we've ever seen from the Knicks before. Dad reveals a frank, nuanced scouting report of every player's skill set and even tips (or guides?) Derek Fisher's hand with regard to stuff like playing time. You should really check out  the whole thing , but...

Let's watch Willis Reed beat up all the Lakers

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Perhaps the rarest, most prized footage showcased in  When The Garden Was Eden on ESPN Tuesday night was tape of the final seconds of the Knicks' relatively underwhelming 1973 Championship victory in Los Angeles. Next to that? Willis Reed beating up ALL the Lakers in 1966: Brian Cronin once  wrote about this in his excellent Unsung Knicks History series on Knickerblogger, and it's...

Triangulatin': How the Knicks build a strong-side pick-and-roll

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Last week,  we looked at how the weak side of the Triangle offense can create easy baskets off backdoor "blind pig" cuts to the rim. Let's look at something else the Knicks tried (with limited success) Monday night against the Bucks . If you go back and look at the post linked above, I think it's easy to see where pick-and-rolls could take place on the weak side of the floor. If, i n this...

What could big minutes mean for Amar'e Stoudemire?

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — When it comes to STAT, is bigger better? We do not yet know for sure whether Amar'e Stoudemire will start or come off the bench this season, but one thing seems certain: He won't be held back because of any minutes limit. Head coach Derek Fisher made that very clear on Sunday: "Right now there aren't any minute restrictions, or he can only play the front of a back to back, or any of...

Preseason- Bucks 120, Knicks 107: "We just look tired."

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — It's funny-- after all the talk of improved conditioning heading into Monday night's exhibition versus the Bucks , the Knicks just looked exhausted, like Jackaroe and others said. The guys seemed over-conditioned, as if they'd left their legs back in the Greenburgh gym after five days of practice. Carmelo Anthony in particular lacked the lift to get rolls at the rim at the rim and engage...

Iman Shumpert's clock hat: An investigation

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Will this hat save the Knicks season? How did the hatters get that clock in there in the first place? The Knicks may have lost the battle (i.e. the basketball game) on Monday night, but they definitely won the war (i.e. the post-game hat contest). Iman Shumpert is wearing a clock hat. pic.twitter.com/szznEUv4Qd — Seth Rosenthal (@seth_rosenthal) October 21, 2014 Yep, that is...

Final Score: Bucks 120, Knicks 107

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Please stop that man with the basketball, Knicks. Did you know the Milwaukee Bucks were bad at defense last year? It's true -- they finished 26th in offensive efficiency. You wouldn't have guessed as much from this game, as the Bucks tore through the Knicks' D like a hot knife through butter en route to a 120-107 win at Madison Square Garden. New York had no answer for O.J. Mayo, who put up...

Monday Rock Gobies

We're probably about to see some lifelike lineups and rotations! Between now and game thread o'clock, let's click on some links, eh? - Cool thing!

Andrea Bargnani ruled out for Monday night and other power forward notes

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — A hamstring problem will keep Bargs in street clothes. Bad news for those looking forward to a "DalemBargs" sequel -- Italian large gentleman Andrea Bargnani has officially been ruled out for Monday night's preseason clash with the Milwaukee Bucks : Bargnani won't play tomorrow as he didn't practice during this gap. — Marc Berman (@NYPost_Berman) October 19, 2014 "This gap" is in...

Derek Fisher gives possible lineup hints and other notes from Knicks practice

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...
