“We Got Rid of Phil Jackson, Where’s Our Karmic Reward?” – The 2018 NBA Lottery Open Thread

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — The Knicks haven’t moved up in the lottery since they won the Patrick Ewing sweepstakes over thirty years ago. And that was working with much different lottery odds. Since then, the Knicks have been in 14 lotteries and have not moved up in ANY of them. They HAVE famously moved BACKWARDS in a number of them, though. Let’s hope that they get some karmic reward for not trying to tank...

Knicks Don’t Hire Mark Jackson! David Fizdale Hired to be the New Knicks Head Coach

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — According to Woj, the Knicks have agreed to a four-year deal with David Fizdale. Fizdale is a very popular coach among the players in the NBA and when he was the coach in Memphis, he ran a modern offense (while still paying attention to their team defense), so hopefully this works out. The main thing is, though, that he is not Mark Jackson. So I am pumped.

ESPN.com: Sources: Knicks dismiss Jeff Hornacek; candidates include David Fizdale, David Blatt, Mark Jackson

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — From Woj: The New York Knicks dismissed coach Jeff Hornacek early Thursday morning, league sources told ESPN. Knicks president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry informed Hornacek of his firing upon the team’s return to suburban New York following a flight back from Cleveland, where the Knicks beat the Cavaliers 110-98. Hornacek had one year left on his contract. Kurt Rambis,...

NY Post: The Knicks’ Jeff Hornacek rebellion is growing quickly

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — From Marc Berman, who sure seemed to have a direct line to Steve Mills back during Phil’s tenure with the Knicks (as Berman went from being over-the-top in his praise of Jackson to eventually picking away at Jackson constantly, right in line with Mills’ growing dissatisfaction with Phil): As Hornacek’s Knicks stint winds down to perhaps its final seven games, players may be...

Yahoo! – Sources: Troy Williams agrees to two-year deal with Knicks

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Isn’t it crazy how Yahoo! lost the best basketball insider in the game and still manage to have an excellent basketball insider even after Woj left? Shams is amazing. Anyhow, from Shams: The New York Knicks and forward Troy Williams have agreed to a two-year contract, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Williams’ deal will be guaranteed for the remainder of this season and includes partial...

NY Daily News: Time is running out for Joakim Noah to reach buyout agreement with Knicks

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — From Stefan Bondy: Joakim Noah has until midnight Thursday or else he’s stuck with the Knicks. That’s the deadline for the exiled center to reach a buyout if he wants to sign elsewhere and be eligible for the playoffs. However, as late as Wednesday afternoon, there had been no progress in negotiations. The Knicks still didn’t want to release Noah without significant money coming back in a...

NY Post: Why Knicks luring Doc Rivers to New York is a possibility

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — From Marc Berman: It would be an easier sell for Clippers coach Doc Rivers if Kristaps Porzingis didn’t tear his ACL three weeks ago to complicate the Knicks’ rebuilding program. But according to a former Rivers associate, it’s not far-fetched for the one-time Knicks guard to have interest in the team’s coaching job if Jeff Hornacek, who has one year left on his contract, is let go after the...

2018 NBA All-Star Saturday Night

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — I figure we might as well have an open thread if anyone is going to be watching The Skills Challenge, Three-Point Contest, and the Slam Dunk Competition tonight. With KP injured, the Knicks won’t have anyone involved in any of the competitions tonight, but honestly, it’s been a long time since we ever expected to see Knicks in these things, right? Even back in the day, John Starks...

HoopsHype: No team is shooting or making fewer three-pointers than the Knicks

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Good article by Bryan Kalbrosky. Only the Golden State Warriors have a better catch-and-shoot field goal percentage this season. New York is shooting 38.7 percent from downtown when taking catch-and-shoot three-pointers, which ranks Top 5 in the East. But they rank last in the East (16.6) for attempts per game. They have not found a true spot-up shooter on their roster, as they have run this...

ESPN: Tim Hardaway Jr. Out for at Least Two Weeks

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — According to ESPN’s Ian Begley: Knicks say Tim Hardaway Jr. will be out for at least two weeks due to the stress injury in his lower left leg. Well, that’s not good.

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...
