This week Matt and Jeff discuss a rough week that ended with a loss to the very tough Clippers. The game had it's ups and downs. Melo looked like a beast, Felton played his best game in a while and...well thats all for the good. The bench was blasted out of MSG, especially JR who is clearly not on the level of J Craword. That much is clear. CP3 could not be stopped, Griffin was entirely unimpressive, but hit a few key jumpers. Matt thinks the biggest problem is Woodson's stubborn refusal to tweak the lineup, maybe a Kurt Thomas could have helped. Jeff wonders whether Shumpert isn't a good as we thought and maybe we are looking at him with our Landry Fields rookie glasses. In any case, losses to the Wiz and Clips and wins against Pistons and T-wolves made for an ugly week. Just win against Toronto and we can all feel good about a 33-17 start!

This week Matt and Jeff are like all Knicks fans: on cloud 9! How can you not be. We discuss a very easy and rewarding week, probably the best since the beginning of the year, if not better than that because now we know we are good, we don't just hope it. We discuss Amare's investment in post moves with Hakeem and consider starting a Kickstarter campaign to get Jeff and I to Hakeem's post camp. We ponder whether there are any real issues right now? Is anyone bothered by Felton's D? We obviously still may need some rebounding help, but if Sheed comes back or Camby, does this team really have any holes? Starting to dream big Knicks fans, come along for the ride! We also discuss Jeff watching the game in person vs. Orlando while I watched the disgraceful Lakers in LA and we sympathize with the Grizzlies fan base for Hollinger's first move which seems like a bad one.

This week Matt Ritter and Jeff Cerulli discuss the week that saw a nice win in Boston and a home win against Atlanta sandwiched around a brutal loss to Philly. More notable was the return of Shumpert and Felton. Which means basically for the first time all year, the Knicks are at full strength. We discuss whether the team as constructed has what it takes to win or if we need to make a move. Some positive signs from Amare and Melo has one of his solid Melo games where he wills the team to victory against Atlanta. An easy stretch ahead should give us some room to breath with the Nets hot on our trail.

This week Matt Ritter and Jeff Cerulli discuss a very light week for the Knicks. A win in London vs the bottom feeding Pistons and a rough, rough loss to a bitter rival NJ Nets. We discuss again how rebounding and effort are becoming major problems and how we wish we had a guy like Reggie Evans instead of a stiff like Copeland. On the bright side, Amare's work with Hakeem seems to be paying off, although he looks visibly shorter and is getting stuffed everytime he drives baseline. Once again Melo and JR are having rough shooting outings, although there really aren't many options for shooting. We run through the available free agents in an effort to avoid having K-Mart come to the Knicks. Matt's personal choice would be Dan Gadzuric. Jeff seems to like a guy named Marcus Cousins, not to be confused with DeMarcus Cousins. This is the Marcus Cousins.

We look ahead to a rematch against the Celts where the smell of Honey Nut Cheerios may be wafting through the air vents and pray that the Knicks can rip off a winning streak in an easy stretch of the schedule.

Wow, what a crappy week for our Knicks, beaten by 3 of our main Eastern Coference rivals, the Celtics, Pacers and Bulls. Melo gets suspended after KG gets in his for the infamous phrase "your girl tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios". Luckily, we had the deadbeat Hornets to salvage the week and a good performance on both ends. Jeff and I give Copeland player of the week for stepping up big.

Then I have special guest, NBA stat geek, Arturo Galletti of Wages of Wins on the podcast. We breakdown how they measure players and why Melo in his opinion isn't on the level of Lebron and Durant. He talks about Melo lacking the mental skills of those top tier players. I try my best to defend Melo against the numbers that show him ranking below AK 47 and Matt Barnes. In the end, we agree, that this Knicks team may have a legit chance to unseat Miami because Kidd and Chandler have done it before.

Happy New Year Knicks Fans! Well, it's been an up and down few weeks, mostly down with a few tough losses to Portland and Sacramento and more importantly a major injury suffered by Felton has really affected the offensive flow.

On the plus side, we beat San Antonio and Orlanda and we are starting to work Amare back in, he and Melo seems to be clicking a little, he's rolling well of the screen and roll, but as we suspected, he is a disgrace defensively. His claim of never having been taught defense as a 30 year old player is just disgraceful.

Jeff and I go over our top 5 Knicks of the first week of 2013 and make our picks for the week.

December 24, 2012 02:12 PM PST

We end the year in style by bringing on Cousin Mikey, another West Coast transplant who spends his days gambling on Basketball with a bunch of Australians and buying all the hot new NBA kicks.

We discuss his views on Amare - he has always ranked him as one of the NBA's biggest cancers and on Melo - he agrees that the man has been reborn. He has many theories, one is that Melo's game has improved due to unknown personal factors. I describe the Amare-Melo dynamic, which I believe to be basically Amare is Melo's driver.

We also get into some Laker and Clipper talk and even discuss the upstart T-Wolves who gave us quite a scare this week, before J.R. Smith and Melo willed us to victory. It was a tough week after our first home losses, but hopefully we can step it up on a relatively easy 3 game west coast swing.

Happy Holidays to all of our listeners. Thanks to those of you who tuned into my new TV Show "Chained to My Ex"

Jeff Cerulli and I will be back to discuss the 2013 drive to the NBA finals after the new years!

December 17, 2012 08:40 PM PST

This week we get the man behind the amazing fake twitter, Coach D'antoni, who has been providing us with fake insights of the coach we love to hate. Comedian Joe Praino and I discuss getting pro-active and using fake twitter accounts to express yourself in a way that nobody lets you do using your real name. We discuss his memory of sitting in Ewing's seats and getting yelled at by Spike Lee

Jeff Cerulli and I discuss Linsanity's only visit to the Garden where he and the Rockets absolutely annihilate us again, I chalk it up to Melo's absence or maybe they have our number. We also rank the top 5 Knicks of the week, Copeland makes his first and maybe only appearance..and we rag on our girlfriends for not being Knicks fans. Also, Matt briefly discusses his new TV show "Chained to My Ex" which premieres this Sunday night on MSNBC at 9 PM ET/6 PT. Please watch!

December 10, 2012 11:44 AM PST

This week, we get to hear from another great guest, NY Daily News beat reporter, Frank Isola, who has been covering the Knicks since 1996. He shoots me down after I suggest Novak is better than Ray Allen and reminds me that Tyson Chandler didn't fare so well in the playoffs against Bosh. Basically, the reality check podcast.

It was a great week, starting with J.R. Smith's first career game winner in Charlotte. The monster's dethroning of King James and Company without Melo. An ugly but hypercompetitive loss in Chicago and finally a really nice comeback win against a very hardworking Nuggets team with an Italian with a chip on his shoulder.

Jeff Cerulli and I unveil our new weekly Knicks rankings, somehow James "Flight" White makes Jeff's list.

December 03, 2012 03:00 AM PST

Amazing Race competitor, film producer and die hard Knicks fan, Justin Kanew joins us to talk about the past week where the Knicks took care of business against a few inferior opponents. We also talk about his experience shooting a comedy with the legendary Jean Claude Van Damne. As usual, Jeff Cerulli and I debate my feelings on Sheed and Priggioni, who I'm starting to come around on. Sheed finally gets his first ejection, but did he deserve it and did we just find out that Copeland is really good. Most importantly, Jeff and I discuss whether a top flight Urban Professional League team could defeat a WNBA team. Can we make this matchup happen somehow?
