Joakim Noah is back from the netherworld

The Step Back (Max Carlin) — After two catastrophic seasons with the New York Knicks, Joakim Noah is experiencing an unexpected resurgence with the Memphis Grizzlies. There is a stench that emanates from the New York Knicks. It’s the decay of former lottery picks on their last legs in the league. It’s the has-been stars failing even to post empty numbers.

LeBron James gets ripped by Walt Frazier during Lakers-Knicks game

The Step Back (Brad Berreman) — Sunday’s Knicks-Lakers game was mostly uninteresting, but Knicks’ legend Walt Frazier levied some due criticism on LeBron James. Most of the time, a Los Angeles Lakers-New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden would carry a certain level of buzz.

The new lottery odds have made tanking irrelevant but nobody told the Knicks

The Step Back (Keith Parish) — It appears that NBA teams out of the playoff race aren’t as focused on losing as many games as possible to improve their draft stock this season. It is still early but the rule change that flattened the lottery odds seems to have had the desired effect. After a 2017-18 campaign that saw as many as nine […] The new lottery odds have made tanking irrelevant but nobody...

If Fortnite is ruining the Knicks, what can we blame for the Lakers?

The Step Back (Keith Parish) — It appears this is the week that the NBA media quit procrastinating about worrying over the Lakers and finally embraced the full-blown panic: The Lakers and LeBron James are not making the playoffs. There are many reasons, such as Lonzo Ball being injured (Los Angeles is 20-14 this season when he plays) and obviously the […] If Fortnite is ruining the Knicks, what can we blame for the...

How is Dennis Smith Jr. changing in New York?

The Step Back (Rory Masterson) — Through nine games with the New York Knicks following an uninspired, if not altogether disappointing, season and change with the Dallas Mavericks, plenty of people think Dennis Smith Jr. is roughly what they expected from him coming out of North Carolina State, but on a grander stage — an explosive, borderline-reckless athlete with as much […] How is Dennis Smith Jr. changing in...

Mario Hezonja had a Dunk of the Year nominee

The Step Back (Kareem Gantt) — New York Knicks forward Mario Hezonja has long posterized opponents. But in Cleveland, he had, quite possibly, the dunk of the year. Mario Hezonja and the New York Knicks haven’t had a lot to celebrate this season. After all, they’re dead last in the NBA at 10-46, traded away their only marketable star, and have […] Mario Hezonja had a Dunk of the Year nominee - FanSided ...

The Step Back (Brad Berreman) — Jeremy Lin is indeed going to be bought out by the Atlanta Hawks, and he’s headed north of the border to the Toronto Raptors. It’s been just over seven years since “Linsanity” descended on the New York Knicks, via a little-known point guard named Jeremy Lin.

The Knicks gambling their entire future on free agency makes me feel alive

The Step Back (Keith Parish) — Forgive us if we knocked over our cereal bowls over when the news of the Porzingis trade broke during the taping of our regularly scheduled episode. The news is still shocking many days later! Who dumps their franchise player (still on his rookie deal!) for cap space?

Trading Kristaps Porzingis was the right move for the Knicks

The Step Back (Brandon Jefferson) — One of the definitions of insanity stated by the Merriam-Webster’s dictionary reads as: “extreme folly or unreasonableness; something utterly foolish or unreasonable”. Since reaching the NBA Finals in 1999, insanity is as good a descriptor as there is to quantify what the New York Knicks have done over the past 20 seasons. Bloated contracts were […] Trading Kristaps...
