Written by William Lee

Date Month Day Home/Away Opponent Time   Highlights
Wednesday October 29 vs Chicago 8:00 P.M. Knicks kick off their 2014-2015 season against the best defensive team of the 2013-2014 season with the addition offensive fire power of Pau Gasol, Doug McDermontt, and Nikola Mirotic. Not to mention the return of the 2011 MVP, Derrick Rose, this is a must see for any NBA fan.
Thursday October 30 at Cleveland 8:00 P.M. NBA schedule makers sure know how to make the opening week exciting! New York does not have to wait long for the new look Cavs, the Knicks get to see first hand how deadly the new Big Three of LeBron, Irving, and Love**pending** can be.
Sunday November 2 vs. Charlotte 7:30 P.M.  
Tuesday November 4 vs. Washington 7:30 P.M.  
Wednesday November 5 at Detroit 7:30 P.M.  
Friday November 7 at Brooklyn 7:30 P.M. The rivalry and the trash talking begins early, we can all argue which team sucks less…

Monday November 24 at Houston 8:00 P.M. New York won’t have much to be thankful during Thanksgiving weekend. The NBA schedule makers did a disservice to the Knicks, putting them on a three game road trip to see star studded James Harden and Dwight Howard at Houston. Then just before Thanksgiving, Dirk Nowitzki and our old buddy Tyson Chandler. And for the finale OKC and the reigning MVP Kevin Durant. It will be great NBA basketball to watch, but this can easily be the beginning of a losing streak.
Wednesday November 26 at Dallas 7:30 P.M.
Friday November 28 at Oklahoma City 8:00 P.M.
Sunday November 30 vs. Miami 7:30 P.M. After will most likely be a horrible Thanksgiving weekend for the Knicks, New York will hope to share some of it’s misery with the Heat. Which hopefully will be a terrible season without LeBron, hopefully the Knicks continue to pail onto those woes and collect a W.

Friday December 12 at Boston 7:30 P.M.  
Sunday December 14 vs. Toronto 7:30 P.M.  
Tuesday December 16 vs. Dallas 8:00 P.M. Tyson Chandler and Raymond Faton Felton returns to MSG, it is pretty safe to say they will get booed…which is unfortunate. Vice versa, 26 games into the season, how will Knicks fans feel about Calderon and Dalembert. Who will have won the trade?

Sunday February 1 vs. L.A. Lakers 2:00 P.M. Anytime the Lakers are in town will be a treat (well…for any bandwagon Laker fans…), this could be one of the last games of Kobe in MSG as he is entering the last couple of years in his current contract at age 35. PLUS THE RETURN OF LINSANITY!

Saturday March 7 vs. Indiana 7:30 P.M.  
Monday March 9 at Denver 9:00 P.M. Carmelo Anthony makes another return to Denver, where he will be sure to receive boos. Anthony will no doubt look to silence those boos by putting the ball in the basket.

Wednesday March 25 vs. L.A. Clippers 7:00 P.M. Lob City comes to town. Of which there will be much of since Calderon is as effective as a chair, and Dalembert is a homeless man Tyson Chandler.
Friday March 27 vs. Boston 7:30 P.M.  
Saturday March 28 at Chicago 8:00 P.M.  
Wednesday April 1 vs. Brooklyn 7:30 P.M. This could be the beginning of a winning streak entering into the Playoffs with a relatively weak schedule to end the regular season. It will begin with the in city rival Brooklyn Nets, and can also get the last bragging rights of the season to boast.

Restricted Access

Written by Nicholas McGowan

The New York Knicks continue to explore their options when looking to upgrade the current roster. The laughable trade proposal for Kevin love had no shot of being accepted but it at least shows us that Phil Jackson is still looking to make improvements. There is certainly room for improvement as we inch closer to the start of the season. In particular there are two restricted free agents that would make a whole lot of sense on the Knicks roster. The first of these free agents is the disgruntled power forward/center Greg Monroe. Monroe averaged 15.2 points, 9.3 rebounds, shot 65% from the free throw line, shot just under 50%, and averaged around 1 steal and .6 blocks a game. Monroe has expressed his interest in leaving a crowed Detroit frontline that includes young and talented center Andre Drummond and the highly paid and overrated Josh Smith who apparently has the full support of Stan van Gundy. The other restricted free agent is point guard Eric Bledsoe of the Phoenix Suns. Bledsoe really came into his own last year as he made the jump from role player to starter. Despite only playing in 43 games due to an injury Bledsoe looked like a polished starter as he averaged 17.7 points, 5.5 assists, 4.7 rebounds, 1.6 steals, and shot a respectable 35.7% from three. Bledsoe is certainly a better option than any of our current point guards. He doesn’t have the three point shooting or knowledge that Jose Calderon possess but he has defense agility needed to stay with John Wall, Kyrie Irving, Derrick Rose, and the other point guards of the East. The Knicks will have to give up quite the package to acquire Bledsoe seeing that the Suns have said they will match any offer. Monroe on the other hand should be easier to obtain. Let’s take a look at what it cost the Knicks and how Monroe and Bledsoe would fit into New York’s system. Continue reading
