The injury bug continues to bite the Knicks hard. With so many players having to take a step back due to various knee injuries, it's almost as though there's an evil Heat fan just poking a few Knickerbocker voodoo dolls in his basement.
Nevertheless, though Carmelo Anthony may hope to be in uniform against Orlando on Wednesday, New York still announced that they'll be without Tyson Chandler and Kurt Thomas for a prolonged period of time.
How can the team cope with such losses, given that the injuries just keep on occurring? Phife Dawg and I discuss the team's latest ups and downs on the new edition of the KnicksJournal.com Podcast.
Fresh off staging a mini "A Tribe Called Quest" reunion at SXSW, the rapper not only shares what it was like to perform again, but also what it was like to take in such a devastating Knickerbocker loss live last week in Golden State during the team's just finished road trip.
At the beginning of the season, the Knicks appeared to be going forth with a "win now" or "all or nothing" mentality. Mike Woodson's done a terrific job of putting this team in a great position, but with so many injuries, will they be able to maintain any still existing momentum?
With many of their eggs all in one basket, where will the Knicks go from here, should they fall terribly short of legitimately contending this postseason? Will not winning a championship signal a total bust for New York this season? If they do come up short, who will stay and who will go? What moves can they make? How much longer will Amar'e Stoudemire's stay in the Big Apple be?
Phife and I discuss ponder all these very questions and more. We address not only the latest happenings, but what may lie ahead for the Knicks if they don't have a longer term plan in place.
Make sure you give us a listen for some great Knickerbocker debate, a little SXSW talk, and Phife Dawg's Final Four predictions.
