Pre-Game Notes from Knicks vs. Bulls, October 31st

by Anish Philip (@da_k0mish) – new contributor here on the New York Knicks Podcast website

Chicago is one of the favorites to dethrone the Heat in the Eastern Conference. They had a rocky start in Miami, and will be motivated to bounce back in a big way. That, plus Derrick Rose’s return, will have the Madhouse on Madison rocking to start.

Knicks’ turnovers nearly cost them the game against a far less competitor in their home opener. Woodson needs to right the ship, because the best quality the Knicks possessed last year was taking care of the ball.

Last year, the Bulls swept the series 4-0. 3 of those games were blowouts.

Komz keys to the game:

A. Run as much as you can. Let’s see theses Bulls keep up that defense in the final 5 mins after running a track meet. Continue reading

KNICKS WIN!!! Knicks fan call for seconds on their heart medication.

  • Oh, we are up by 20, this is fun, this is easy…goddamn it, I forgot these are the Knicks.
  • Did the Knicks flip a coin as to whether to get the 2nd quarter or the 3rd quarter off?
  • Wow, can’t figure out why Toronto wanted to get Bargs out of town so badly?
  • Woodson said in his postgame presser that Bargs needs to find his niche. I think he has found his niche, lead killer.
  • Speaking of my new found hate for Bargs, is Cole Aldrich really that bad that we are better off having Bargs at Center??? I think I am ready to play Chris Smith at Center over Bargs at this point.
  • I feel bad for Beno as his plus/minus looks real bad only bc he was forced to play with Bargs every time out there. Continue reading

The Riggin’ For Wiggins Bracket

15. Philadelphia 76’ers – How excited are you if you’re a Philly fan that your team gutted its roster for a 25% chance at getting supposed first pick in next year’s NBA draft, Andrew Wiggins. Highlights of the season will be game 1 when Allen Iverson will have his retirement ceremony (remember he retired, it clearly was not that he couldn’t find a job) and the last few weeks of the season when they could be serious challengers for worst record of all time.

14. Charlotte Bobcats – The soon to be Hornets have had 8 top 10 draft picks in 9 years and have never drafted an all-star. Every year their strategy seems to be ‘tank and get a high draft pick’ yet they suck at drafting. Well congrats Charlotte, the acquisition of Al Jefferson will probably boost your record just enough so that you won’t get the number one pick, guaranteeing you’ll screw up whatever pick you do get.

The We Suck But Not As Hard As The Last Bracket Bracket


13. Toronto Raptors – After trying to give away Andrea Bargnani last season, the Raptors managed to get two players who are even less effective in Tyler Hansbrough and Steve Novak. At least they have a bunch of inefficient ball stoppers. Continue reading
