  • NEW YORK KNICKS 2012-2013 THREAD

    This is where we'll follow our knicks and discuss our knicks..


    Knicks have added Marcus Camby, Jason Kidd, Pablo Prigioni, Ronnie Brewer, Raymond Felton to the team.. This team better make a push to be a top 3seed in the east, as they seem to be loaded..


    Early in the pre-season, they look great.. Novak has looked good, as has Melo and Ty Chandler... Kidd is getting acclimated with the new roster, and Felton has been impressive finding the new teammates, and old ones(from when he was here before)


    Chris Copeland looks to be the possible find from the undrafted ranks..

      Also Rasheed Wallace was added
      Football has been very, very good to us.
      After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
      But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

      # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

      1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
      2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
      3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
      4-New York Giants!!!
      5-NE
      Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

        I have high hopes this season. The bad thing is those hopes will probably get crushed.

          I'm letting myself get high hopes one more time with this team, and if they don't produce , i'm never gonna get my hopes up again , untill actually proven...

          I really do love the additons of Camby , Kidd, and Felton though... Can't wait to get Iman Shumpert back in the fold.. Talk about top to bottom loaded!

          Melo
          Stoudamire
          Ty Chandler
          Shumpert
          Novak
          Camby
          Kidd
          R.Brewer
          R.Felton
          K.Thomas
          JR Smith
          P.Prigioni
          Copeland- Big kids got game.. Been around a few yrs overseas but certainly has some intrigue..

            Stoudemire looked good vs toronto, except for the foul problems.

              ok, can you more knowledgeable NBA fans tell me why signing a nursing home crew of old players is gonna make us that much better than last year

              Camby, Thomas, Kidd, Wallace

              they make me think of Jello and Bingo

              man, Thomas played with Ewing and not just for 1 or 2 seasons, several seasons !! ... he's almost as old as me !

                Ya, but u forgot to mention Raymond Felton is our starter with Kidd as his backup... Thats a sweet 1/2 punch at the PG positon, with longtime international player Prigioni as our 3rd PG.. Pretty much all pass 1st pg's..

                Also u forgot to mention that Camby is backing up Chandler.. I mean, u can't get a better backup then Camby for Chandler.. The defense were gonna get from the middle is insane!

                Also we added Ronnie Brewer for defense on the outside, and Kurt Thomas can still rebound and hit the mid range jumper..

                JR Smith being here for a full season is only gonna help as well..

                I love the look of this team.. That Copeland kid went off for 34points the other day.. His 2nd monster game in the pre-season.. He was hitting 3's...

                  The Shumpert injury was really upsetting. The Knicks looked like they had something with him. Looked to be a more athletic Bruce Bowen type that could defend 1-3. He was the Knicks best defender now who knows if he ever can effectively guard PG's ever again. If he cant progress this team cant beat Miami

                    Camby can still play man. He was the top rebounder in the NBA per minute. Having him to back up Chandler is huge for the Knicks defense.Kidd is probably an overrated signing from the terms of name to production . Probably wouldnt of come here if he knew Lin wasnt being resigned.Still the money isnt bad.Thomas we got stuck with in thwe Felton trade that we got screwed over on. Wallace might not make the team

                        Kidd coming here is more of a mentor/veteran PG move. Prigioni looks like he will be taking a lot of those minutes off the bench. The guy passes flawlessly and is the definition of a true PG. Wallace will be here, Woodson loves him and he just needs to get back into shape, especially if Tyson and Amare are out for a conisderable amount of time.

                        It's all about now for the Knicks. Lets see what happens 40 years after our last ring...

                          what happened to it. i have not been following the pre season as close as i should

                            ok just saw that he hurt it setting a screen on Gearld Wallace of the Nets. Hopefully its just a sprain like he said and the MRI will confirm that. They also have Camby out with a calf injury, Amare out with a knee issue. Wallace is not in playing shape yet. JR Smith out past four games with a foot injury. doesnt sound like the oldest team in the NBA will make it to far with all these 30something guys
