A big thanks to Patrick for making these charts. So we’ve been talking about how the Knicks offense is predictable when Melo and/or JR is on the floor and stagnant when they are off. And this chart would be even more skewed if you consider Amare missed 53 games last season. This breakout of team scoring pretty much sums that up:
Now lets take a look at that when compared to the two teams that made the finals last year. First the Miami Heat: Continue reading
Finally, games that count! Win or lose I’m so excited to watch an actual meaningful game. Thoughts, predictions, rants, comments, etc go here.

For some reason Heat are considering actually signing and playing Eddy Curry. I understand the Heat are undersized and Curry has size (a whole lot of size) but is this a joke. The only way Curry would help the Heat is by producing fewer leftovers after team dinners. As a Knick, I would like to advise the Heat that this would be a fantastic move for them. He was really an invaluable paperweight on our bench.
We recap the Hawks/Knicks game, talk about Cleveland beating the Lakers and then spend the rest of the episode talking to Mike Kurylo from Knickerblogger.net. We talk about how Mike got started, some of the moves from the Isiah era, misleading stats, Carmelo Anthony and other potential trades, Donnie Walsh, favorite all-time Knicks and favorite current Knick, Mike D’antoni, and hating the Heat.

Jay and Marc each went to a Knicks game this week and give their comments on the games. We respond to a listener email and introduce two new segments into the show; PotStats and 2 Heated Minutes. I got really drunk during my other podcast and messed up the settings on my equipment so we have some technical difficulties this episode. Sorry about that. Everything is fixed and episode 18 sounds great and will be up soon. Download Episode 17
The Knicks finish November above .500 for the first time since 2005. Another player puts up crazy stats against Golden State. Horrible trade suggestions. We make our predictions on how will the Heat handle the crowd in Cleveland on the 2nd. We also talk about the Knicks less than friendly schedule in December and try to figure out how the Knicks will fare. Download Episode 15
