knicks

The Cavaliers came into last night game against the Knicks with a disappointing (6-7) records. Their season has been marred with ups and downs and I touched on some of their problems in the post below. The Knicks on the other hand have been thriving as of late and are actually reinventing their identity.  I’ve been really impressed with their efforts on both ends of the floor; they get a lot of buckets in transition because they are playing a fast pace game, and Porzingis ( if he can limit his turnovers ) is basically unstoppable. Last night’s game didn’t start very well for theRead More →

When the Knicks picked Porzingis in the 2015 draft night, booes followed up. I’m sure many thought he was going to be another European hype that will turn out to be a bust .

You had aging players like Jose Calderon, who pretty much couldn’t stop any PG in the league; teams went to MSG to d rack up buckets. The knicks became unwatchable; but we got a glimpse of what that team could become with the right personnel. Porzingis although booed on Draft night, exceeded everyone’s expectation- he is a bonafide superstar in the making with amazing basketball skills- he can post up, he can shoot , he can dribble, he is aRead More →
