2017 NBA Draft Lottery: One man’s diary of despair

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — It's Matt Miranda's party, and he'll cry if he wants to. Having endured yet another six-month, 82-game preseason, Tuesday night was the long-awaited only competition that really matters in Knick nation: the draft lottery. New York was seeded seventh and hadn’t moved up in a draft since 1985. Whoop-dee-damn-do! sang my inner optimist. Past failures have no bearing on future success. The...

The Frozen Envelope, Episode 14 (Post-Lottery Special): Things could be worse!

Posting and Toasting (James Marceda) — We’ve still got Kristaps! iTunes | Stitcher | Google Play That could’ve gone better, but it also could’ve gone worse! The Knicks moved down in the draft YET AGAIN, and all the evil places in the world (Boston) wound up with a top 3 pick, but there remains, somehow, hope! Andrea Bargnani ain’t walking through that door, and even though we “deserve” a “better” pick, at least we ...

The Knicks have the *sigh* 8th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft

Posting and Toasting (MattRW) — Of course. Welp. I’m honestly not sure why I was even nervous. There was literally no chance things wouldn’t happen this way. The Knicks will be picking 8th in the 2017 NBA draft, meaning they moved down a slot from where they would’ve been had no team moved up. New York had a 22.6% chance of landing the 8th pick. The top three picks are going to the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, and...

Knicks Links: Who’s ready for the Draft Lottery?

Posting and Toasting (Alex Wolfe) — Also: Some other stuff, but who cares? DRAFT LOTTERY!!! I’m going to teach all of you a little yoga today. Take a deep breath in for 3-5 seconds, counting as you inhale. Now exhale slowly, taking twice as long as your inhale. Now repeat that continuously until tonight at 8:00 p.m. That’s right, tonight is that magical day that (usually) comes around bi-annually for Knicks fans — the NBA...

Dressing and Progressing: Picking out Clyde Frazier’s suit for the Draft Lottery

Posting and Toasting (Alex Wolfe) — Clyde needs to look his best if he’s going to help the Knicks move up The Knicks are cursed. We all know this, and have grown to accept it. With the Draft Lottery coming on Tuesday evening, many fans have braced themselves more for the .000000000001 percent chance that the Knicks tumble to pick 10 than the 1-in-20 shot that they move to No. 1. And you’d be reasonable to assume so — the...

Let’s dream up some fun offensive plays for Kristaps Porzingis

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — Kristaps should be fun! For some reason, much of the conversation around the Knicks has revolved around the offense. By now, the word "Triangle" probably invokes an involuntary response similar to that of a New York college student hearing the name "Donald Trump.” The offense wasn't really the issue, but there are still plenty of improvements to be made on that end of the floor. How to do...

Courtney Lee met some up-and-coming New York artists in their personal studios

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Call him Courtney Leegenheim. I don’t know about y’all, but I like my Knicks to have diverse off-court interests. It’s fun to follow players around from time to time as they meet cool people and gain access to cool places. Shooting guard Courtney Lee, for example, used his status as a Knick to take a tour of a few New York art studios with advisor Gardy St. Clair. From the Court to the...

A dashiki-clad Clarence Gaines sprinkled in some peculiar questions in combine interviews

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — New York’s super-scout remains a P&T hero. The NBA Draft Combine is wrapping up, and the biggest story in the New York media at the moment is Phil Jackson saying the exact same stuff about Carmelo Anthony that he said last month. But that stuff is boring, so let us instead focus on the work of super-scout Clarence Gaines—a.k.a. the dude who recommended the Knicks draft Kristaps Porzingis....

Karma Police 2017: Serving lottery justice to the NBA’s sorriest teams, plus Boston (part 2)

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — On Wednesday , we looked at the backstories and energies and mojos of five of the 14 lottery hopefuls. Today we do the same for the Knicks and the hateful eight. The number after the team is how many lottery balls they have out of the 1,000. The teams are in ascending order of their threat level to the Knicks. MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES (53) History: In 2004, the Timberwolves reached the...

Phil Jackson traveled to Chicago to interview Markelle Fultz and De’Aaron Fox

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Draft stuff! Much to our delight, the Knicks front office is currently in the midst of doing front office things—in particular, scouting for the upcoming NBA Draft. The organization’s draft fever is so great that even Phil Jackson is attending the Draft Combine in Chicago this year following a one-year hiatus when the Knicks lacked a 2016 draft pick. (I mean, he still should have gone, but...

Karma Police 2017: Serving lottery justice to the NBA’s sorriest teams, plus Boston (part 1)

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Will the sins of the past come back to haunt these clubs come lottery night? Next Tuesday the NBA draft lottery goes down, and with it, the hopes and dreams of nearly half the league’s fan bases. Some people think the draft is an open and honest random drawing. Some people think it’s a total fix, rigged by the league and it’s business interests. The truth is, it’s the karma, stupid....
