If Knicks fans are liking what San Antonio has done, we’re going to love what’s in store for our own future.
The Spurs are a model franchise that all teams can look to. Stability, sacrifice, teamwork, consistency, execution, discipline, (enter any other media buzzword). Poppovich is revered and worshipped. TP9 and Manu are both 1st ballot HoF guys along with the best PF of all time.
Spurs under Popovich (16 years straight)
6 title appearances
4 titles (possibly 5 after this year)
The Spurs are everything the Knicks are not. Continue reading
Nothing has actually happened in the offseason so far, but there are tons of rumors floating around. Since we don’t have much else to do other than watch the last few highly predictable games of the conference finals I figured I’d briefly mention a few of the current items of note.
Carmelo Anthony said he would embrace playing for Mark Jackson. No duh. From what I saw of Jackson in Golden State it looks like plays are not his strong suit. Which means plenty of opportunity for iso-Melo. The fact that Melo would be happy to play for a coach that lets him monopolize the ball is no shocker. You should probably go to the top sportsbooks and wager it all on Melo being happy with any coach that gives him enough leeway as Woodson did.
Chicago, Golden State and Brooklyn are interested in Toure Murry. Continue reading
Everything you need to know about your favorite team, all in one great app
It’s no secret: businesses are going mobile. Experts have, time and again, encouraged even the smallest businesses to go mobile and cater to the current market with mobile apps and mobile-optimized websites. Forbes has said that today’s consumers are “using mobile devices to access social media and business sites… they’re roaming the streets clutching smartphones and tablets, looking for things to do or buy.”
But even when they’re not looking for things to buy or businesses to visit, 81% of smartphone owners still use their devices to access information on the internet. Gaming Realms, operators of mobile gaming site Castle Jackpot, have said that the global smartphone and tablet markets are expected to exceed the PC market in the next few years, with the market for virtual goods doubling from 2010 to 2014.
With 34% of users going online using mostly their phones, it’s no surprise that everyone wants to make not just mobile-friendly websites, but easy-access apps that provide complete and up-to-date information to anyone who needs it. The New York Knicks have recognized this as well, releasing their first official app on both Android and iPhone.
The Official New York Knicks App lets fans have access to the latest news on the New York Knicks, with live content feed featuring everything from photos to interview videos. Game scores are also updated real-time on the app, with enhanced player and team stats and standings. For those who are watching live games, they can even use the app to order and reserve merchandise to be claimed at the booths at the arena, and there are even up-to-date arena maps and seating charts available on the app.
The app is completely free and is regularly updated, so NYK fans who are always on the go can have easy access to all the information on their favorite team, wherever they are!

It can be sometimes hard to find the truth, in the case of the Knicks; it is always hard to find the truth. Behind the strict media policies that supposedly all Knicks employees must agree to, there seem to be a few people who continue to leak out information. For instance, a few days ago media reports had Steve Kerr joining the Golden State Warriors. Yet today I saw a report from CBS Sports that read “Steve Kerr seeking five-year, $30 million deal from Knicks. It’s amazing to see the drastic change from Kerr to Warriors to Kerr to Knicks. Remember when the word out of the Knicks was that they wanted to ink Kerr to a deal in early May? I do, yet today is May 12th and the longer this head coaching search drags out, the more possible landings spots for Kerr open up. The OKC Thunder who just blew a 16 point lead, might fire Scott Brooks, and if the Indiana Pacers lose (looks as though they will certainly play Miami at this point) there will certainly be rumblings about the security of Frank Vogel. The Knicks need to lock up Kerr now if they believe he is the man to lead the Knicks to a championship. The Knicks cannot afford to lose him, if a better situation pops up, one that is both better than the Warriors and Knicks situation, Kerr might bolt there. Since recent reports have Kerr coming to Knicks, I figured we should have some idea as how he might do as our coach. Continue reading
