Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

After what seemed like weeks of deliberation, rumors that he was possibly leveraging the New York Knicks against the Los Angeles Lakers to get the job he (presumably) really wanted, and a lot of TV and radio discussion, the wait is finally over.

Phil Jackson has formally been announced as the Knicks new president of basketball operations.

News coverage for Phil’s new job, from its early discussions to its formal announcement, has been at an all-time high. You can find plenty of coverage here on Sheridan Hoops:

Tweet of the Night: Wally Szczerbiak reacts to Andrea Bargnani’s explosive night

Andrea BargnaniWhen the New York Knicks acquired Andrea Bargnani from the Toronto Raptors over the summer, plenty around the league questioned the move.

The former No. 1 overall pick has built a reputation over the years as a “soft” big who can’t rebound, defensively unreliable and isn’t efficient enough on offense – all things that the Knicks actually needed to improve on from last season.

So when all these things appeared to be true through his first four games of the season – he averaged 8.8 points, two rebounds and zero blocks during that stretch – it started to sink in that the team may have gotten worse than last season by acquiring the center. Things only got worse when Tyson Chandler suffered a fracture in his right fibula earlier in the week against the Charlotte Bobcats: it meant the Knicks would have to depend on Bargnani even more for the next four to six weeks. 

Tweet of the Day: NBA Halloween [2013 Edition]

Thursday brought with it Halloween, possibly most children’s favorite day of the year.

While it isn’t recognized as a national holiday of any sort—people still have to work and pay taxes, it is a day of fun for nearly everyone.

For most families, this means dressing kids in costumes and parading around the neighborhood searching for candy.

For NBA players (active and retired), it’s no different.

amare_stoudemireIt took quite some time for Amare Stoudemire to regain his form as a dominant force on the basketball court since suffering a back injury two postseasons ago.

The power forward was never quite right last season, and missed a good chunk of this season due to a knee issue that still has him playing on a minutes restriction – recommended by the team’s doctors.

Bauman: Kevin Garnett has come full circle

Leave a comment

When Kevin Garnett came into the NBA as the fourth preps-to-pros phenom, he was a gangly, 6-11, 220 pound player with unmistakable skills and a burning passion and insatiable appetite for the game of basketball.

He entered the league when Patrick Ewing was a dominant player, and last night his 15 points against New Orleans moved him past Patrick Ewing for 16th on the all-time scoring list.
