  • 2013/2014 NEW YORK KNICKS THREAD. GO KNICKS!!!!

    With the opener now only 1day away(holy crap!!!), we can start talking about are beloved boys in orange and blue! With the additons of Metta World Peace, Andrea Bargniani, Beno Udrich, Tim Hardaway Jr, and the resigning of Kenyon Martin Prig, and Jr smith, and SHump going into yr 3, of what i think is gonna be his 1st AS appearence of many, and Melo,stat, Chandler, Felton also all returning, were in for a awesome season!



    THis team is crazy deep! I raved about the drafting of Tim Hardaway Jr and was fully on board with the trade for Andrea, and i'm also on record right now, as saying, this team will go further in the postseason then they did last yr! Confrence Finals at worst!

    I actually think the additon of Andrea Bargniani is gonna be a brilliant one, as now we can spread the floor and if they wanna crash on Melo, he can kick it out to just about anyone on the court, and they can make em pay. Also, even though he can't rebound, Chandler and Barg's are a couple big boys out there, so the rebounding should be fine with the starting 5, with Melo, Shump, and felton filling out the starting 5.. Bargs dosen't have to be the man anymore and can play pressure free for the most part(it is NYC), and Melo will find himself a new best friend on the court. I think Bargs/Melo is gonna be a match made in heaven! Also, i think Shump is gonna be a AS this yr, and Kenyon and Metta bring a nice little nastiness to this yrs bunch.. Also, Udrich is a super awesome under rated signing. Another guy who can stroke it from deep and take over starting duties if need be, and can dish it, and shoots a very high FT pct, and is a smart savy pg. Prig, Felton,and Udrich is quality PG play..

        I may get alittle hot headed, but i'm never gonna stop speaking what i truly feel. I won't sugar coat just because a players on one of my beloved teams. I have very high hopes for this team. Alot of people think we didn't do much this offsesason and certainly not enough to be better then last yrs team, but i disagree. I'm 100pct on board with this team. Its time this team hits on all the promise we've been made through all the yrs of crappy teams, and waiting for the FA period to get Stat and the trade for melo..etc We made the 1st rd one yr. We made it to the 2nd rd the next yr, and now its time for Confrence Finals or better.. So ya, i'm gonna be a bit annoyed if they don't play well, and if they are sucking, i may have some choice words..lol

            Here's hoping Bargnani makes me feel stupid for doubting him!
            "...two minute drill at the end of each quarter, Ya'know with the wind like this blowing mooch and marshall into the ocean...If that's behind me I think were getting 3 from 70 so holla at your boy. IF YOU DON"T PICK ME THAT'S A JOKE RIGHT?" - Justin Tucker, Ravens kicker

            Complain?, ain't Nobody got time for dat!

            GO GIANTS!

              I'm all for not sugarcoating anything, I totally understand. I hate sugarcoating when this team ****s up over and over.

              At the same time, it's sometimes discouraging to see you call the players losers and what not. I don't know, I just wouldn't do that. I'm mad at them but I know they are working hard and trying (for the most part).

              Anyway, I really hope this team stays healthy and stays focused. I'm excited to see what Metta, Andrea, and Hardaway Jr. can bring to the table.

                I think Shump explodes this year. I think if all plays out right for him he could become an Andre Iguodala type player. His shot looks smooth as hell from the preseason. Excited for Bargs too I think he could be a great addition. Looking forward to seeing Hardaway Jr too. He could be a solid off the bench spark for us this year!

                      Quick poll...

                      Lets get the vibe of Knicks fans on here before the first game...

                      Forget the playoffs..

                      Yes OR No?

                      At seasons end..


                      Will we be the best team in NY?

                        My Top 5 storylines for this yr for Knicks..


                        1). Bargniani- How will he fit with Melo and JR and Stat? I think hes gonna fit very well, and can pull bigs away from under the hoop, letting guys like Shump and Felton attack more then they'd be able 2. Also, Bargs is another guy who can rip it from 3 and score. We seen how bad we needed more scoring in the postseason last yr and now we got a guy who avg'd 20plus just a couple yrs ago..

                        2). Shump going into yr 3- This is a big yr for the soon to be superstar. Yr 3 is usually a big yr for young players in any sport. Hes already shown a improved outside shot and jumper to go with unreal athletic ability and defensive prowess. Hes to the knicks what Paul George is to the pacers.

                        3). 3headed PG Monster- How will Woodson handle the PG positon? Last yr, he played 2 often, but with the depth of this team, i don't see him being able to do that as often, albeit, Udrich could probably play some 2guard as well, as he can score and shoot.. All 3 guys deserve at least some minutes every game in my opinion and it'll be interesting to see how Woodson figures out the min's for them.

                        4). The Rook hardaway- I loved the pick and he looked like a long range assasin in the preseason. I'm very excited to see him and what he'll do with his minutes as a rookie. He could be one of the steals of the 1st rd..

                        5). Artest/Metta - Hes home! Need i say more!

                          Yes. The depth of our team from Melo to Chandler, to Amare, to Hardaway, to Shump, to Felton, to JR, to Prig, to Udrich, to Kenyon, to Artest, and Bargs, this team is incredible deep. I think our depth will be to much for teams to overcome. We got scorers and bigtime players gonna be out there at all times..

                            Yeah I think they Nets are Lakers 2.0.. look nice on paper but no depth at all. If Amare can stay healthy we could make a deep playoff run for sure!

                              They are deep which should help us pull out some games against teams that are not as deep and get in foul trouble. However they didn't look all that great in pre season. Now I know games don't count but we said same thing about giants and were. 2-6
                              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!!!
