GIF: Quincy Acy Almost Tears The Rim Down

Quincy Acy

The Knicks gave up 120 points to the Bucks tonight in a 120-107 loss and Jabari Parker didn’t even have a great game. Fortunately, expectations are low for the Knicks this season — though, not according to the people we follow on Twitter. With that in mind, it’s best to just focus on any improvements. Regardless of New York’s troubles, Quincy Acy did his best to try and rip the iron off the backboard on a dunk that’s making the poor rim at MSG continue to vibrate in fear. Read More »

GIF: Cole Aldrich Jams Possible Pregame 360

Cole Aldrich

Similar to the eastbay jam Iman Shumpert threw down the other day in pregame, Cole Aldrich likes to put on a little show during the pregame layup line. While Iman seems to effortlessly float towards the rim, the 25-year-old Aldrich is entering his fifth season after coming out Kansas in 2011, but isn’t exactly a skywalker like Shump. Still, the 6-11 center’s 360-degree slam is impressive, though we’re not sure he made a full rotation. Read More »

Iman Shumpert

Many are hoping Iman Shumpert can come into his own this year with coach Mike Woodson out of the picture. Shump always seemed to be in Woodson’s dog house, but with Derek Fisher taking over this summer, the 6-5 guard out of Georgia Tech could turn into a bigger contributor in New York’s triangle offense.

Carmelo Anthony On Triangle Offense: “It’s An Adjustment”

Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony has bought into the long-term vision that Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher have for the New York Knicks. More important than any off-court trust the high-scoring superstar has in his organization’s braintrust, though, is the belief that he is and will be put in the best position to succeed while on it. Anthony has said all the right things as he adjusts to intricacies of the famed triangle offense, and Jackson is adamant the system will bring out the best in his franchise player. But after two preseason games utilizing the triangle, Carmelo doesn’t exactly seem comfortable in his new shoes. Read More »

Basketball is a copycat game. Given the incredible success that Dirk Nowitzki has enjoyed utilizing his patented one-legged fadeaway over the past 16 seasons, then, it’s been no surprise to see players like Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Kevin Durant use it to great, effortless effect. Carmelo Anthony’s most recent iteration of Dirk’s signature move, though, is especially difficult – even if he makes it seem anything but. Read More »

J.R. Smith Says Learning Triangle Offense “Is Going To Take A Few Months”

J.R. Smith, Derek Fisher

The Knicks have a new coach and a new system in place with Derek Fisher taking over for Mike Woodson this year to help implement the somewhat anachronistic triangle offense — supplanting Woody’s more traditional sets last year. The inchoate nature of triangle for the team was on full display during New York’s 106-86 loss to Boston in their preseason opener last night, and J.R. Smith tells the New York Post‘s Fred Kerber, “It’s going to take some time.” Read More »
