Knicks Improvement Due to Defense

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — This year the Knicks’ Kristaps Porzingis has been greeted by his adoring fans with chants of “MVP!” It’s not entirely without merit as Porzingis is second in the league’s most important MVP category — points per game. Realistically there’s little chance he’ll be among the top 5 this year, as LeBron James, James Harden, Stephen Curry, Giannis...

Knicks 108 Pacers 101: KIDS INCORPORATED!

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Porzingis with 40 points and 6 blocks. Frank Ntilikina playing the fourth quarter, hitting two treys, and poking the ball away from the Pacers at will. WOW! If this is a glimpse at the future, I need a DeLorean. On second thought, I’m fine with the journey at normal speed.

Knicks 84 Thunder 105 – Some Thoughts

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Well it’s hard to believe the Knicks were competitive in this game, but for a half they were right in it. Ironically as a team, they didn’t start off that well. Kanter seemed to forget that “pivot foot” is a thing in basketball. NBA Superstar Michael Beasley sprained his ankle 36 seconds into his initial court appearance, right before he could drop 40 points on...

Official Knicks 2017-18 Wins Prediction Thread

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Okay, folks, come make your picks as to how many wins that the New York Knicks will win this season. For me, logically, they should be sub-30 win bad, but because the Knicks always find a way to mess with things, I’m going to go with 31 wins, just good enough to not get the top picks in the 2018 Draft. What say you all?

Thoughts On the Melo Era

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Now that the Knicks have finally found a suitor for Anthony, the book is closed on the ‘Melo era in New York. The Knicks acquired Carmelo in the middle of the 2011 season, and the forward spent 6 1/3 seasons with the team. Initially after Carmelo’s addition, the team had reached a level of success that eluded them in the decade prior. New York made the playoffs in 3 straight...

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — I literally just got off a cruise ship in Vancouver after a week long cruise in Alaska, turn on my phone for the first time in a week and that was quite good timing. From ESPN… The New York Knicks have agreed to trade 10-time All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder, league sources told ESPN on Saturday. The Thunder will send center Enes Kanter, forward Doug...

Is it Worth it for the Knicks to Spend a Draft Pick for Masai Ujiri?

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — There’s been a buzz on the internet about the Knicks acquiring the Toronto Raptors VP Masai Ujiri for their front office vacancy. Poaching an executive from another team isn’t illegal in sports, as there usually requires some kind of compensation for the deed. In May the Raptors acquired a second round pick from Orlando, because the Magic hired Jeff Weltman to be their president....

Knicks 2017 Summer League Roster Breakdown

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — With the Knicks summer league right around the corner, I thought I’d look at some of the lesser known prospects and give my opinion on them. Jamel Artis SF, 6-7, 23 Artis is an empty scorer. Other than scoring and a moderate amount of rebounding (6.7 reb/40), he adds literally nothing else. With 0.7 stl/40 and 0.5 blk/40 he will get roasted on defense. On offense he can hit from downtown...

Knicks Draft Frank Ntilikina #8, Damyean Dotson #44, and Ognjen Jaramaz #58

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — The New York Knicks walked into the draft with the league abuzz about the prospect of the franchise doing something drastic and frankly devastating stupid. However the evening was a humdrum affair for New Yorkers, as the team selected two guards, and more importantly didn’t trade away their prize jewel. Let’s overlook the Porzingis-Jackson kerfuffle for now and concentrate on the...

Everything Will Be All Right…Right? – The 2017 NBA Draft Thread

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — No matter what, tonight will be an interesting night. Who will the Knicks pick with the #8 pick? Will they trade for a second (or even a third!) first round pick? Will they trade up in the draft to get another second rounder? Will they trade their current two second rounders for one second rounder higher in the second round? Will they, you know, trade that one guy? We will likely find out the...

Roundtable: 2017 Knicks Pre-Draft Discussion

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — The player taken well before the Knicks’ #8 pick that will be a bust… KURYLO: I’m going to go with De’Aaron Fox. I like his defense, but he just strikes me as a bit inconsistent and his outside shooting is a red flag. Fox’s ability to drive and throw alley-oops hints at a game that is more style than substance, and I’m concerned what will happen against more athletic and more skilled...

Solving the NBA’s Tanking Problem

Knicker Blogger (DCrockett17) — Tanking seems to be on everyone’s mind in the NBA these days. Like many sports problems, “tanking” is not singular but an amorphous cluster of problems all housed under one term. The term isn’t hard to define–it’s when a team has a strategic incentive to lose–but it lacks a precise scope. That makes it hard to settle on what exactly is included when...
