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

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

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.

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

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

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
