February Blues

Written by Declan Ryan
With the Superbowl done and dusted, it’s suddenly all back to normal in New York. At the start of the season I wrote an article detailing why us Knicks fans should be optimistic about the 13/14 campaign – how wrong I was.
 
The Knicks are a mess this year, however at 19-28 they stand only two spots off the playoffs and next face Milwaukee in what is a very winnable game. It’s important to look at the here and now with this team; Dolan is not interested in a rebuilding project, of course the priority is keeping Melo, but the only way you do that is by winning games. The Knicks have to prove that this current roster won’t be a waste of space until 2016 when contracts are up and significant changes can be made. Unfortunately though I cannot offer optimism, and a quick look at the Knicks’ February schedule will almost certainly sway you too. Here’s my prediction for the Knicks record over the month of February:
 
Feb 6th – Blazers (Loss)
Feb 8th – Nuggets (Loss)
Feb 9th – Thunder (Loss)
Feb 13th – Kings (Win)
Feb 19th – Grizzlies (Loss)
Feb 20th – Pelicans (Win)
Feb 22nd – Magic (Win)
Feb 23rd – Hawks (Loss)
Feb 25th – Mavericks (Loss)
Feb 28th – Heat (Loss)
 
3-7. Honestly. The Kings, Pelicans and Magic are all winnable games against mediocre opponents, and should be won comfortably. On the other hand, teams such as the Grizzlies, Mavericks and Nuggets have all put up respectable records so far in a ridiculously tough Western Conference, and despite all of them only being marginally over .500, it’s hard to argue that players such as Zach Randolph, Mike Conley, Dirk, Monta Ellis, and Ty Lawson will be even slightly slowed down by the Knicks turgid and uncompromisable mess of a defense. After this brutal month of scheduling, the Knicks would be left with a 22-35 record – only one more win than the 8th seed Charlotte Bobcats currently have. I would go even further into the Knicks schedule, but I feel the point has been made. Continue reading

Knicks @ Bucks – 2-3-14 – Game Recap

Written by William Lee

Efffff recapping, I am going to just use this opportunity to vent…
THIS IS HOW YOU KNOW THE KNICKS SUCK!

We just lost to the 8-39 Milwaukee Bucks WORST RECORD IN THE LEAGUE!
THIS IS HOW YOU KNOW THE KNICKS SUCK!

You need your star Carmelo Anthony to score 19 points in the fourth quarter just to get back into the game…against a team that is trying to TANK for the number one overall pick…
THIS IS HOW YOU KNOW THE KNICKS SUCK!

Raymond Felton…THAT IS ALL…do I really need to say more…
THIS IS HOW YOU KNOW THE KNICKS SUCK!

Every play Mike Woodson “draws up” is an iso play for Carmelo Anthony…everyone and their grandmother knew that Anthony was going to take the last shot…HOW ABOUT YOU USE MELO AS A DECOY SOMETIMES…JEZZZZZZ Do you see how the Mavericks use Dirk Nowitzki as a decoy, even on crucial last possession shots…YOU CAN TRUST OTHER PLAYERS TO MAKE A PLAY…IT’S NOT 1 ON 5 out there…it’s 5 on 5…
THIS IS HOW YOU KNOW THE KNICKS SUCK!

First of all you let Brandon Knight score 36 points in the last meeting…WAKE UP! Guard this guy…how do you let him get 25 points and 7 assist this game…Knight is not THAT GOOD…and this guy got the last five points to win the game…GET FELTON OFF THE EFFING FLOOR! THIS GUY CAN’T GUARD A CHAIR!
THIS IS HOW YOU KNOW THE KNICKS SUCK!

The Bucks are the sixth worst three point shooting team in the league at 34.4%, but yet you let them go 11/18 for 61.1%…That’s cool……Also when a close to 40% three point shooter knocks down a couple of threes…you might want to guard the man…NOPE NOT THE KNICKS…Just let Khris Middleton roam free above the arc…that’s completely fine…
THIS IS HOW YOU KNOW THE KNICKS SUCK!

You know what Knicks Podcast Nation, you let us know why the Knicks SUCK…I am done venting for one night. Good Night.
