Knicks: Now is the perfect time to trade for Lonzo Ball

What would a New York Knicks trade for Lonzo Ball look like? Elfrid Payton is bad yet again. His love affair with Julius Randle has become detrimental to team chemistry and ball movement as he doesn’t look for anyone else to pass to besides him. While he does seem to be one of the only […] Knicks: Now is the perfect time to trade for Lonzo Ball - Daily Knicks - Daily Knicks - A New York Knicks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Cavaliers 106, Knicks 103: Scenes from the Damyean Dotson Revenge Game

Cavaliers 106, Knicks 103: Scenes from the Damyean Dotson Revenge Game

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports Nobody ever sees it coming. True Knicks fans know there’s no such thing as rock bottom with this franchise — things can always get worse. Still, it’s pretty bad right now for the orange and blue. The Knicks executed like clowns down the stretch and fell victim to 7 clutch points from ex-Knick Damyean Dotson as the woefully undermanned Cleveland Cavaliers pulled out a 106-103 win. Let’s start with the good stuff. Immanuel Quickley played for the oft-ineffective Elfrid Payton for much of the second half and dropped a career-high 23...

Despite the early success, Elfrid Payton doesn’t fit with the Knicks

Despite the early success, Elfrid Payton doesn’t fit with the Knicks

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports A statistical argument against Elf. At the beginning of the season, I called for Julius Randle to be bought out if he was not yet traded. Along with many other Knicks fans, I’d had more than enough after a season of watching him spinning into triple coverage. At the time, I thought, even with a presumed bounce back to Randle’s New Orleans play under a competent coach, it wouldn’t be worth it due to the negative effect on spacing and development. Randle made myself and many others look foolish through the first seven games of the...

Knicks 113, Hawks 108: Scenes from that over-.500 feeling

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Immanuel Quickley forever! Oh, you’re saying your favorite NBA team isn’t over .500? Sorry dude...can’t relate. The Knicks were floundering in the third quarter against NBA Twitter’s favorite up-and-coming power, the Atlanta Hawks. ATL built a comfy 13-point lead and Elfrid Payton was taking way more shots than Elfrid Payton ever should. It was, in short, not a formula for success. Suddenly, head coach Tom Thibodeau had a revelation. The Hawks were dominating with Trae Young, but what if the Knicks countered with their own diminutive...

Knicks: Why Austin Rivers should be the starting point guard

Austin Rivers should immediately supplant Elfrid Payton in the starting lineup for the New York Knicks. These first five games of the New York Knicks season have been a roller-coaster, likely a microcosm of what all 72 will look like. Solid efforts before fading late, followed by a night where everything comes together, followed by a […] Knicks: Why Austin Rivers should be the starting point guard - Daily Knicks - Daily Knicks - A New York Knicks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Finding some trade destinations for New York Knicks point guard Elfrid Payton.

Knicks 130, Bucks 110: Scenes from point guard problem? What point guard problem?

Photo by Mike Stobe/ So apparently Elfrid Payton can shoot now. It was madness at MSG Sunday night as your New York Knicks stomped all over the Milwaukee Bucks, 130-110. Yes, I’m referring to the same Bucks squad that has the NBA’s best regular-season record over the past two years. They got the crap kicked out of them...by the Knicks. The Bucks are a big team, but their bigness was held in check by the frontcourt duo of Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson. Julius put up insane numbers — 29 points, 14 rebounds, 7 assists — while thoroughly out-playing reigning...

I fell into a coma after this and still have not heard of the coronavirus. The Knicks are a pitiful, penniless bunch. Elfrid Payton will make damn sure of it. Jrue Holiday is going to sag so far off him, it will seem as if he’s guarding Julius Randle. Stop the count! Projected Starters Elfrid Payton v. Jrue Holiday. Shit. Reggie Bullock v.
