Passing Judgment: Phil Jackson Returns to the Knicks

Finally, the Knicks can be taken seriously again.  OK maybe it won’t happen that quickly, but the presence of Phil Jackson in the Knicks’ front office should hopefully keep owner James Dolan at bay – for now. Jackson will be introduced as the newest president of the Knicks at a press conference scheduled for Tuesday, […]

Passing Judgment: The NBA Name Game

So the NBA is considering putting nicknames on the backs of Nets and Heat jerseys this season.  This is completely ridiculous.  This is the National Basketball Association – not the XFL.  But I get it…the NBA wisely markets its superstars and superteams to its young fan base and they will willingly shell out dollars to […]

Passing Judgment – The Amare Quandary

For about a decade, I was a dormant New York Knicks fan.  There was no reason to watch games or follow the team during much of the 2000’s because of piss poor play, terrible management, and a hideous roster filled with washed up, unlikeable players.  Gone were the days of Patrick Ewing, John Starks, and […]

Passing Judgment – The Knicks return to the playoffs.

After ten long years, I have finally been able to openly admit that I am a fan of the New York Knicks.  This past decade has been akin to the Dark Ages for this storied franchise.  Once the Patrick Ewing era ended, it has been a continuous freefall for the Knickerbockers who became the biggest […]

Passing Judgment – Enough of the ‘Melo-Drama

It’s been almost ten years, but I think it is safe enough to openly admit that I am a New York Knicks fan.  I grew up in the midst of the Patrick Ewing-led teams that were perennial contenders in the 1990’s.  Along with Ewing were players like John Starks, Charles Oakley, Anthony Mason, Derek Harper, […]

Passing Judgment – Not a Fun Week in Sports

Besides having some personal medical issues this week (no worries – everything is fine now), it was not a good 7 days to be a fan of the sports teams that I root for.  I have become immune and accustomed to disappointment when it comes to my sports allegiances (outside of a couple Giants’ Super […]
