You see, life consists of giving yourself these problems that can be dealt with, so you don’t have to face the problems that can’t be dealt with. It’s very meaningful to me, for instance, to see if the Knicks are going to get over some problem or another. These are matters you can get involved with, safely, and pleasurably, and the outcome doesn’t hurt you.
"…so what if Miracle at Saint Anna flopped? I didn’t know all those other WWII Nazi movies were comin out the same time. I swear Tarantino’s always trying to sabotage my career. But I did Inside Man though. You saw that, Melo? Inside Man! Inside Man, damn it! INSIDE MAAAN!”
(Mark - I liked the movie Inside Man)

PLAYOFF BASKETBALL HAS RETURNED TO THE MECCA. It’s been a rough 7 years, but now New Yorkers can once again see, the Knicks play playoff basketball.

So to celebrate the Knicks finally clinching their playoff spot, here are new versions of our “D’Antones” tee as well as a special “Rileys” edition featuring the definitive punk rock Knicks lineup of the 90’s. 

Purchase via our Spreadshirt store: D’Antones / Rileys

I’ve never understood the whole hype with Madison Square Garden. It’s like anything: They’re a very good team with very good players, and so that’s something that gets your juices flowing: because it’s Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire. But Madison Square Garden to me? It’s not one of the nicer places in the league. It has some history, but no more so than some others. Look, their last championship was in the ’70s.
— Shots Fired! Stan Van Gundy on facing the Knicks tonight and playing in The Garden. I wonder if his brother Jeff has the same opinions though…

Our N.Y. Knicks: While many of you were embroiled in watching the Oscars, (Don’t even get me started, I mean o.k., The King’s Speech, but what about  Winter’s Bone? what about Darren Aronofsky or David Fincher for best director? Jeff Bridges or that Little girl from The Coen Brothers excellent True Grit?) o.k., I digress, while all this shit went down, The Knicks played the Miami Heat. A high Profile game played by higher profile players and I am happy to report, the Knicks won! Not just outscoring their opponent, as they have done in most of their victories this year, but they actually BEAT the Heat by playing defense. So seeing this at the deli today made me happy

This Day In NBA History: The New York Knickerbockers celebrate the 40th anniversary of their 1969-70 championship.
Also of note: a special halftime ceremony will take place at the Garden tomorrow featuring most members of the championship team (Phil Jackson won’t be in attendance due to a Laker game).
Tomorrow’s game also just happens to be the first game with the new Knicks roster featuring a certain Carmelo Anthony. A well-timed passing of the torch perhaps? But are the Knicks even in the discussion to make it to the finals though? Double complete coincidence…WHAT DOES IT MEAN???

This column isn’t about Amar’e Stoudemire, even though he just recorded his 8th straight game of at least 30 points, setting a New York Knickerbocker franchise record.
It’s not about Coach Mike D’Antoni’s high-octane offense, which is largely responsible for Amar’e’s last 292 points, not to mention Kevin Love’s historic 30-30 game, Blake’s Griffin’s breakout 44/15/7, Andrea Bargnani’s 41, Tayshaun Prince’s 31, and a 19 point game from Gary Forbes.  Who?  I’m not exactly sure.  But I read he plays for the Nuggets.
This is about New York City.
The Knicks are 16-9, winning their last 8 straight, MSG (the greatest place to watch basketball anywhere in the world) is going crazy again, and courtside seats for this Friday’s home game against the Heat game are going for a cool $78,000.

And the biggest sign of New York’s pro-basketball awakening? 
I walked by two kids playing one-on-one.  A Caucasian boy, rocking a Raymond Felton jersey, versus an African-American kid, wearing a Danilo Gallinari jersey.  They weren’t very good, but they were having a lot of fun.  I would have watched longer, but an older Indian gentleman was yelling at his Asian friend about Boston coming to town saying, “We gotta beat those Celtics.  I hate the goddamn Celtics.”
The Garden is the Mecca of Basketball, the City is the Birthplace of Basketball, and the Knicks have basketball fans hoping for a Renaissance.  And it’s coming.  You can feel it.
It all started this summer.  Amar’e Stoudemire came to New York, opened his arms as wide as he   possibly could, and said, “Gimme a hug, New York, you jerk bastards.”    And we did.  We hugged him. 
Now he’s winning basketball games.  While Lebron’s talents and public image head South, Stoudemire has, in one fell swoop, completely rewritten his own basketball history.  Sports writers, basketball analysts and announcers alike have put Amar’e in serious contention for the league’s MVP award.  Amar’e Stoudemire?  MVP?
That is the power of New York City.
Everyone seems to have forgotten that Amar’e has only played in one Conference Final, has never led his own team, is an underachieving rebounder, and a rather poor defender (just look at all the aforementioned forwards who hung monster stats on the Knicks interior defense).
And you know what?  New Yorkers don’t want to remember.  We have forgotten, and we like it that way, thank you very much.  We want basketball in New York City to matter, and we’re going jump the gun, to make it happen.
That is the power of New York City.
Go New York, Go New York, Go.
