One Shining Moment: 2014-2015 Knicks Tragedy Montage

You can now re-live the most hilarious (but painful) moments of the Knicks season

This isn’t an official video, of course. The Knicks could have never won the NCAA championship.

Shoutout to the maker of the video for using one of our vines

Quincy Acy Dunks, Celebrates, then Remembers how bad the Knicks are (VINE)

Charlotte Hornets v New York Knicks  508084169   Charlotte Hornets v New York KnicksQuincy Acy threw down a pretty nice alley-oop in the Knicks-Bucks game on Friday.

He got pretty excited.

His celebration kinda fizzled out a bit midway through though… I wonder why?

The Knicks being 15-63 might have something to do with it.

BREAKING: Former Knick Chris Copeland stabbed in Manhattan


Former Knick Chris Copeland and two women were stabbed while leaving a Manhattan club on Wednesday morning, according to reports.

Copeland was in New York because the Indiana Pacers, his current team, are set to play the Knicks on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. Copeland and others were leaving 1 OAK Club in Chelsea when they got in an argument with 22 year-old Shezoy Bleary, who pulled a knife and stabbed Copeland in the abdomen and elbow, slashed his ex-fiancée (now “good friend”) Katrine Saltara in the arm and leg, and slashed 53 year-old Catherine Somani (accidentally; she is believed to be the suspect’s friend) in the abdomen.

Copeland and Saltara were rushed to the hospital as police apprehended the suspect. They are both believed to be in stable condition.

Copeland’s elbow was fractured in the incident and will require surgery

Two Hawks players, Pero Antic and Thabo Sefolosha, were arrested at the scene for obstruction.

*UPDATE: Copeland is out of surgery

*UPDATE: Copeland has been released from the hospital

***Chris Copeland is my favorite player in the league, and has always been supportive of my efforts on this blog. He was nice enough to issue post-game passes so that I could meet him in person the last time the Pacers were at MSG. My thoughts are with him and his wife. -Tommy Rothman

The Knicks perfectly executed a triangle play called the “Blind Pig” in Sunday’s win over the 76ers.

Fitting. It took them 76 games.

Knicks chant “win on 3,” then lose (VIDEO)

It’s the thought that counts, right?

Nice April Fools’ Joke there in the huddle, Quincy Acy.

Rock Bottom: Knicks suffer record-setting Loss


It’s official.

In the 1985-86 and 2007-08 seasons, the Knicks went 23-59, which, until now, had been the worst record in franchise history. But with Saturday’s blowout loss in Chicago (where current Knicks president Phil Jackson won 6 titles as a coach), the Knicks broke the franchise record for losses in a season, falling to 14-60. With 8 games left on the schedule, the Knicks figure to set their new “record” by a wide margin, and could approach the record for most losses by ANY team (although they will not “catch” the 9-73 Sixers team from 1973).

Now, while the Knicks have set all kinds of “worst in team history” records this season, that doesn’t mean things can’t turn around. They lost 58, 59, and 58 games over a three-year stretch in the mid-80s, and the last two of those seasons came WITH Patrick Ewing on the roster (the first helped them GET Patrick Ewing on the roster). This miserable stretch was followed by a decade and a half of great Knicks teams. The Knicks have cap space, and will have a good pick (obviously), so with some luck and good planning, they have a chance to flip the script and get to the top of the league.

But there’s no question that THIS is rock bottom.
