The New York Knick’s toxic relationship with the free-throw line

Posting and Toasting (Jwiesel13) — Gotta hit the freebies. A Free-throw. The Oxford Dictionary interprets this word: “An unimpeded attempt at a basket (worth one point) awarded to a player following a foul or other infringement.” The word unimpeded is the key here. Unfortunately, when the New York Knicks have been at the foul line this season, it has not always looked like an unimpeded attempt. At the current time of...

P&T interview with New York City legend and All-Star, Kenny Anderson, Part 3

Posting and Toasting (AndrewPolaniecki) — Getty/chapulana Kenny Anderson , a New York City basketball legend, rose to prominence at a young age, overcoming challenges in LeFrak City to excel both academically and in basketball at Molloy High School. After being drafted as the 2nd pick by the New Jersey Nets in 1991, he went on to become an NBA All-Star. Today, Kenny currently serves as the head basketball coach at Fisk...

A realistic look at the state of the Knicks

Posting and Toasting (Kento Kato) — Good not great seems to be theme of this team... So far this season, the Knicks have found themselves in a tier akin to where they were last season. Neither great nor bad, but good and no better, and no worse. Now, last season, considering what the expectations were heading into the season, the tier of teams that consisted of really good but not elite teams was amazing to be grouped with....

Timberwolves 117, Knicks 100: “I don’t like that we have so many days off“

Posting and Toasting (chapulana) — The Knicks wrapped up their five-game trip with a loss at the Twin Cities. The New York Knicks (8-6) lost their final game on the road before flying back home for Thanksgiving, 117-100 to the Minnesota Timberwolves (10-3). This game developed similarly to how the five-game trip endured by the Knickerbockers developed through the last seven days. Losing start, reasonable bounceback,...

Congratulations to NBA (and P&T) Player of Week, Jalen Brunson

Posting and Toasting (Russell_Richardson) — That’s my quarterback. Doff your cap to the New York Knicks ’ Jalen Brunson for earning his second NBA Player of the Week honors. The NBA announced the recipients from each conference on Monday. Jalen took the title for the East; De’Aaron Fox of the Sacramento Kings was chosen from the West. Also notable: Knicks ’ teammate Julius Randle was a runner-up for the award. Sacramento Kings...

Game Preview: Knicks at Timberwolves, November 20, 2023

Posting and Toasting (Kento Kato) — Surprisingly big test in the Twin City. After stumbling out of the gates and starting out the season with a 2-4 record, the Knicks have taken advantage of a softer portion of the schedule by going 6-1 in their last seven games to catapult themselves into a three-way tie for fourth place in the Eastern Conference. A road win tonight would push their current winning streak to four but...

With games against a top-tier team from each conference, the Knicks will finish off a five-game road trip tonight and then return home on Friday for an NBA Cup game. (Yeah, yeah, I’m a day behind in filing this . . . how was your Sunday?) ...

Off-Court Knicks: Country Boy Mitch, DiVo, Brunson, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift!

Posting and Toasting (chapulana) — Plenty of interesting things happening outside Madison Square Garden. A lot of NBA stuff happens on the basketball court, nearly on a daily basis, for months on end. Much ( much ) more takes place outside of it. And I’m not talking about the draft, the free agency, and all of that. I’m talking about this thing we call “life,” you know, this thing that happens while we die. Hoops matchups...

Knicks notes on Karl-Anthony Towns, Alex Caruso, Zach LaVine

Posting and Toasting (chapulana) — To trade, or not to trade? The weekend came and it brought a couple of back-to-back games with it for the New York Knicks to sweep. Do you know what else we got through the last few days? You’re correct! A bunch of reports related to a couple of Knicks’ (probable, potential, likely) trade targets Zach LaVine and Karl-Anthony Towns. If you need or want some context, I wrote about the...

Has Donte DiVincenzo turned the corner?

Posting and Toasting (Kento Kato) — Fingers crossed. Donte DiVincenzo came into the 2023-24 season with what to him might have been an unusual amount of hype and excitement surrounding his acquisition. The 26 year-old wing is and has always been a solid player but he has never been good enough to warrant the kind of expectations and anticipation he had entering the current campaign. This year, however, New York was starting...

Knicks 122, Hornets 108: Scenes from NYK Flamethrowers, Inc., now with extra DiVincenzo

Posting and Toasting (Russell_Richardson) — Donte DiVincezo records two career-bests as New York pinches the wings off Hornets in Charlotte. This evening, I almost missed the tip-off because I was caught up telling my teenaged, guitar-slinging son about Hüsker Dü. In the late nineties, I took a roadtrip to see their frontman Bob Mould on a double-bill with Archers of Loaf at the 9:30 Club. In D.C. Where the Knicks (8-5) won last...

Three takeaways from the Knicks’ end-to-end win over the Wizards last night

Posting and Toasting (Russell_Richardson) — Reflections on how New York was never going to lose, Quickley’s essential role as a bench guy, and RJ’s absence. For your consideration . . . here are three thoughts that occurred during my kid’s basketball practice while I was in the stands, reflecting on the Knicks ’ 120-99 win over the Washington Wizards last night. (We write when and where we can, folks.) 1. The Knicks were never...

Game Preview: Knicks at Hornets, November 18, 2023

The New York Knicks ’ (7-5) five-game road trek continues this evening with a stop in Charlotte to face the Hornets (3-8). Both teams will play the second of a back-to-back. Last night, Charlotte lost to the visiting Bucks, while the Knicks took care of business in the nation’s capital. In their...

Posting and Toasting (Russell_Richardson) — Led by 32 points from Jalen Brunson and 27 from Immanuel Quickley, the Knicks win buzzer-to-buzzer against the reeling Wizards. The New York Knicks (7-5) were in D.C. tonight for a whack at the Washington Wizards (2-10). Last week, New York lost to the Bucks in their first NBA Cup, In-Season Tournament game. That hard-fought game marked a turning point for the club: the Knicks have...
