Taking stock of the Frank Ntilikina situation

Posting and Toasting (BennyBuckets71) — Why all signs point to the Frenchman finally seeing the floor this weekend. The sudden and mostly unexplained disappearance of Frank Ntilikina from recent NBA basketball games has caused chaos in New York, with fans and media speculating that the 20-year-old sophomore point guard is about to be traded while arguing whether he is even any good, but based on the evidence we have at our...

Game Preview: Knicks vs Nets- 12/8/18

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Never taking shorts because Brooklyn is the playoff bound borough. The Brooklyn Nets (9-18) will ride their fixies over to Madison Square Garden tonight. At this point it’s still unclear if they’ll remove their septum rings before the game or before the ride. The Nets broke their eight-game losing streak with an overtime win over the fanged and clawed Raptors . New York (8-18) had their...

Calling all December P&T mailbag questions!

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Tis the season to ask whatevs I hate Christmas puns. Just because it’s December doesn’t make lines like “O Christmas Trier” or “Jolly Ol’ Saint Ntilikina” or “The Twelve Days of Kristaps” any less dumb than they sound in June. These P&T mailbags are Stalinist five-year plans: relentless, unforgiving, essentially war crimes committed in a time of peace. The Ntilikina trade debate continues...

This Week In Knicks History: Eddy Curry's scoring streak

Posting and Toasting (BennyBuckets71) — It was the best stretch of Curry’s Knicks career With the benefit of hindsight, the 2005 trade that sent Chicago Bulls center Eddy Curry to the New York Knicks is rightfully considered a big-time botch job, but 12 years this ago week the big man was in the midst of the most magical run he would have as a Knickerbocker, scoring at least 20 points in 11 straight games. It was, perhaps,...

Celtics 128, Knicks 100: “I didn’t need this”

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Duke hosts Yale Saturday. You know who led the Knicks in plus/minus tonight? Frank Ntilikina, who didn’t play. That’s right: every Knick to appear during Boston’s 128-100 slow burn blowout finished with a minus. The only Celtic with a minus rating was Aron Baynes, who had to exit after two minutes with a left ankle sprain and didn’t return. Many NBA games are like symphonies or games of...

Celtics 128, Knicks 100: Scenes from a predictable smackdown

Posting and Toasting (Alex Wolfe) — You just knew it would go this way. This game was only ever going to go one way. The Celtics were riding a three-game win streak and talking about the Knicks as if they were a real team that’s worth worrying about. Revenge was on their mind, and revenge they got. The Knicks hung around for parts of three quarters, but eventually Boston turned on the jets with a 29-16 fourth quarter and...

Game Preview: Knicks at Celtics- 12/6/18

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — You again? Hi. Ya burnt. The Celtics (13-10) get to sit on their hairy keisters as Knicks (8-17) come over to play at their house again. Don’t worry your though, Trey Burke is out with an MCL sprain. So the theatrics will have to come from somewhere else. Wild guess: won’t be Enes Kanter . I know Al Horford is still trying to stop his momentum from those Burke step back...

Wassup in Westchester: W-Knicks stifle Lakers for seventh consecutive win

Posting and Toasting (ArdenFranklyn) — On a night where Hicks/Garrett struggle, Bluiett stepped up when it mattered most. Out of all of the signs, a contending team possesses, their ability to have any player step up is arguably the most important. On any given night, a team can be in need of serious help and when they’re able to receive it, that situation really changes the game. The Westchester Knicks (12-3) found themselves...

A Knicksy celebration of Hanukkah

Posting and Toasting (BennyBuckets71) — It’s the festival of light-ing it up on the hardwood Tonight is the fourth night of Hanukkah, a Hebrew holiday with numerous spellings, and though many might scoff at the idea that a basketball team like the New York Knicks could be reasonably compared to the festival of lights and the history behind it, those people simply lack imagination. Before we delve into the history of the...

To keep Iso-Zo, Ron Baker’s gotta go

Posting and Toasting (The Ghost of Kristaps Past) — ’Twas fun while it lasted, Ron Allonzo Trier has been a pleasant surprise for the Knicks this season. Signed by New York to a two-way contract as an undrafted rookie out of the University of Arizona, Trier has been a consistent cog in David Fizdale ’s rotation. The two-way contract he was signed to gives an NBA team the flexibility to keep a player under contract without taking up a...

Wassup in Westchester: W-Knicks survive overtime thriller

Posting and Toasting (ArdenFranklyn) — The four man group of Hicks, Garrett, Allen, & Williams led the way towards a sixth consecutive win. While the Westchester Knicks (11-3) will be a bit frustrated with how they won on Monday, they also have to be happy. For any team to become better as they pursue their goal of winning a championship, they need to be able to withstand all kinds of circumstances. And one of them, is facing a...

Drew’s Clues: The Emmanuel Mudiay Investigation

Posting and Toasting (Drew Steele) — Is the play of Emmanuel Mudiay sustainable? In the New York Knicks organization, there two separate but equally important groups. The coaches, who implement the system, and the players, who execute the actions. The results of these actions are measured by statistics. These are their stories. DUN DUN .

Wizards 110, Knicks 107: ‘Third quarter starting lineup should be flogged’

Posting and Toasting (The Ghost of Kristaps Past) — The Knicks outplayed the Wizards for long stretches, but a horrific third quarter buried them in too deep a hole to climb out of. The Knicks thoroughly outplayed the Wizards in the first half. The ball moved with a purpose, they were quicker to loose balls, Mario Hezonja actually strung together productive minutes and the youngn’s — sans Frank Ntilikina — strung together some decent...
