Gregg Popovich Calls Team "Pathetic" After Loss To Knicks

Last night, Gregg Popovich's San Antonio Spurs somehow managed to lose an overtime game to the Knicks, a team that regularly turns possessions into crimes against humanity. This wasn't one of those games where Pop sat all of his starters, either. This was a full-strength squad getting beasted by the likes of Alexey… » 3/18/15 10:09am 3/18/15 10:09am

Knicks Player Accidentally Does Something Good

The Knicks experienced a rare moment of good fortune in Sunday's game against the Suns, when Alexey Shved threw up a no-look shot in an attempt to draw a foul from Archie Goodwin. Somehow, the ball went in, giving Shved the chance at a three-point play. » 3/16/15 11:03am 3/16/15 11:03am

This Knicks-Lakers Game Is A War Crime

We might be in the NBA's Belle Époque, but this 15 second sequence is the lowest moment in NBA history. These two shots are crimes against humanity. If you are watching the Knicks-Lakers game please hit yourself in the face, and then instead watch the Cavaliers and Spurs on TNT. » 3/12/15 11:44pm 3/12/15 11:44pm

Jason Smith's Dancing Is The Only Redeeming Thing About The Knicks

The Knicks are bullshit and should be ignored at all costs, but we can make an exception for power forward Jason Smith, who in this video busts out a series of dance moves at an energy level of a Pixie Stick-addled kid who just watched Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. » 3/03/15 4:07pm 3/03/15 4:07pm

This Is The Worst Shot I've Ever Seen

The above GIF features one of the 400 or so best basketball players in a world earnestly attempting to make a shot—I think—in a real live basketball game that counted in the standings and everything. It went about 20 feet too high, 20 feet too deep, and 20 feet too wide, but at least Alexey Shved is out here trying! » 2/28/15 1:14pm 2/28/15 1:14pm

Guess Which Former Knick's Travel Alias Was "Ace Boogie"

A tipster passed along this list of travel aliases for Knicks players that was used during the 2012-13 season. When asked to confirm or deny its authenticity, a Knicks spokesperson wrote "I can't confirm it for you." » 2/20/15 12:03am 2/20/15 12:03am

Amar'e Stoudemire Wrote A Cute Goodbye Poem To New York

The Knicks and Amar'e Stoudemire have finally parted ways, bringing an end to what was supposed to be an era of fortune and glory. Amar'e may not have ever lived up to his contract from a production standpoint, but he was a great Knick, as further evidenced by how he said goodbye to the city. » 2/16/15 5:50pm 2/16/15 5:50pm

James Dolan Is Not Sorry About Being A Shitty Person

At a charity event today, Knicks owner James Dolan finally spoke about the email he sent this past Sunday, in which he responded to a lifelong fan's harsh but fair criticism by accusing that fan of being a miserable alcoholic. Unsurprisingly, Dolan is not really all that sorry about being a horrible dick. » 2/13/15 5:23pm 2/13/15 5:23pm

Charles Oakley Says James Dolan Won't Even Look Him In The Eye

Former Knicks player Charles Oakley went on the Boomer & Carton show today to talk about the stuff cranky old basketball players love to talk about: How the game just isn't the same anymore, and how today's players are too damn soft. Once those topics had been exhausted, though, Oakley went on to talk about his… » 2/11/15 3:57pm 2/11/15 3:57pm

Basketball Is Dead. The Knicks And Sixers Murdered It.

All the precious, fragile, bitterly-won gains of humankind's wretched, fitful, brave, millennia-long upward struggle went up in white-hot magnesium flames last night in Philadelphia and burned away to powder. All for nothing. All fantasies, every damn one. The Knicks and Sixers have shown us ourselves, and we are… » 1/22/15 11:26am 1/22/15 11:26am

Knicks Heroically Win Fourth Quarter By 17, Only Lose By 28

Hey New York resident, how'd you spend the Saturday early afternoon? Maybe finishing up a long brunch? Enjoying a sunny (but chilly) stroll on the High Line? Catching up on the last season of Sherlock? Really, anything would've been great because Saturdays are great and full of promise. Unless you're the tall group… » 1/10/15 4:17pm 1/10/15 4:17pm

Knicks Fans Have Finally Reached For The Paper Bags

This is it, Knicks fans. This is your life for at least the next few months, and probably much longer unless Phil Jackson can somehow pull off the miracle of luring Marc Gasol to New York to play with a past-his-prime Carmelo Anthony. » 1/09/15 9:41am 1/09/15 9:41am

ESPN Wants Nothing To Do With The Knicks

When the NBA released the national TV schedule in August, the Knicks appeared across ESPN, ABC, and TNT a total of 16 times, tied for ninth most in the league. The NBA has long catered to fans of large market teams—the LOLakers got 20 national TV games even though everybody knew they would be awful and bad TV—but now… » 1/08/15 2:35pm 1/08/15 2:35pm

Bad Knicks Goober Flings Hook Shot To Nowhere

That's Cole Aldrich, starting center for the New York Knicks, draining a sweet turnaround hook shot on the invisible ghost-hoop six feet to the right of the regular one. Good move. » 1/07/15 9:36pm 1/07/15 9:36pm

Times Sending Knicks Beat Reporter Anywhere But Madison Square Garden

Being a sports reporter isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Fans think reporters have the ultimate dream job—"you get to watch sports all day long, man!"—so they have to pretend like they love every single second of it or get called jaded or ungrateful. And to be sure, most sports reporters (I think) do love… » 1/06/15 11:37pm 1/06/15 11:37pm

How In The Ever-Lovin' Hell Can The Knicks Be So Much Bullshit?

Oh yes, this is the good stuff. This is the pure Colombian. This is the braindead, dogshit, dick-in-the-wall-socket-type Knicks experience that's been missing for the last, uh—fuck it, the last couple months, at least. Welcome back, assholes. » 1/06/15 10:59am 1/06/15 10:59am

The Knicks Just Can't Catch A Break

It's been a nightmare season so far for the New York Knicks, as their 5-28 record places them just in front of the dreadful 76ers at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. Today, the team got more bad news: » 12/30/14 5:37pm 12/30/14 5:37pm

John Wall Is In Control

You may have skipped yesterday's Christmas Day game between the Knicks and Wizards, in part because the craptacular Knicks were involved, and in part because a certain level of pacing is required when there are 12 hours of basketball to watch. If you did skip it, you didn't miss the greatest game ever (spoiler alert:… » 12/26/14 11:17am 12/26/14 11:17am
