New York Knicks 2013-2014 Season Preview

By NICK ALBICOCCO

The Knicks have brought back their main players to this year’s NBA season, including their top players: JR Smith, Tyson Chandler, Iman Shumpert, and last year’s top scorer Carmelo Anthony. The team acquired a few new additions this year: Metta World Peace from Los Angeles, Andrea Bargnani from Toronto, and Tim Hardaway Jr. from the University of Michigan.

After falling in the second round to the Indiana Pacers last year, the team is determined to bring a championship to New York City. To add to the Knicks’s offensive talents, the additions of World Peace and Hardaway Jr. will bring new defensive prowess.

Watch out for the rivalry between the Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets, as the two teams have been trash talking each other all summer long about who “owns” the city.

With a star-studded team and a newly renovated Madison Square Garden, the eighteen thousand-plus seats should be packed for the Knicks this season. There seems to be a consensus around Jericho High School that the Knicks will be eliminated in the second round this year. “I think the Knicks will make it to the second round if they are on a hot streak,” said ninth grader Ben Alon.

Liam Garbus agreed. “They’ll make it at least to the second round,” he said.

There is no doubt that New York Knicks fans are in for another fun season.

The New York Knicks Season Opener

By TYLER BLITZ

The New York Knicks played the Milwaukee Bucks at Madison Square Garden for their season opener. The starting lineup consisted of Pablo Prigioni, Raymond Felton, Iman Shumpert, Carmelo Anthony, and Tyson Chandler.
 
At halftime, the Knicks were up by 25 points. However, this was not enough because the Bucks tied the game with about two minutes left. Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler bailed out the Knicks. Carmelo scored two big baskets within the final two minutes, and Chandler came up with a crucial block to ice the game. The Knicks won 90-83. Carmelo Anthony was the leading scorer and rebounder for the Knicks with 19 points and 10 rebounds.
 
Jericho freshman Evan Lapidus said,  “I was a little bit scared when the Bucks came back from the 25 point deficit, but I was soon relieved when the Knicks took back the lead and won.”
