Ron Baker’s 2016-17 Season in Review

Ron Baker’s 2016-17 Season in Review

The Knicks re-signed him so it must have been good! Ron Baker's flowing locks, pesky defense and aight jump shot endeared the undrafted free agent out of Wichita State to the New York fanbase pretty quickly. Like, at first, it was more of a joke thing. We were asking ourselves who the hell is this scrawny little undrafted dude?? Why does he play in the NBA?? That was, however, until he actually started playing some good minutes, and people legitimately began to ask for him to play over former MVP Derrick Rose and former lottery pick Brandon Jennings. Last season was fucking hysterical. As...

Locked on Knicks, Episode 156: Veteran point guards, tank strategy, and Melo’s impact on wins

Locked on Knicks, Episode 156: Veteran point guards, tank strategy, and Melo’s impact on wins

Is Ron Baker going to start next year? iTunes | Stitcher | RSS There’s been a lot of talk about the Knicks obtaining a veteran point guard, but who’s even out there? Matt Weiss joins me to try to answer that and many more pressing questions, including: If Melo does come back, how many wins does he add to the Knicks? How hard should the Knicks tank next year? Is Nets GM Sean Marks a genius? Does Sacramento point guard De’Aaron Fox look like a Dragon Ball Z character? It was a fun chat with a ton of substance, a little bit of hate, and lots of love. Check it out!

The Knicks have been asking around about veteran point guards (and Shabazz Muhammad)

Eric Bledsoe would sure be nice! Hey, I know you’re busy watching Peyton Manning crack dad jokes at the Knicks’ expense at ESPN’s yearly vanity project—sorry to interrupt! But, as it turns out, we’ve got a #BermanBomb situation on our hands! (Not really, but just play along. When was the last time Marc Berman got a huge scoop?) Having spent more or less all of their remaining free agent money on Ron Baker, and firmly in the middle of trying to orchestrate a trade to move Carmelo Anthony, it appears the Knicks have shifted their focus to acquiring a veteran point guard via trade....

Knicks asking around as they seek trade for point guard vet

With their cap space ever so limited, Knicks acting president Steve Mills still believes he can land a veteran point guard via trade, according to an NBA source. While Ron Baker broke the bank on his free-agent contract, getting the entire room exception in a two-year, $9 million deal, the Knicks still believe a point...

Locked on Knicks, Episode 150: Ron Baker Gets Paid

Get that money, Ron! iTunes | Stitcher | RSS Hey guys, it’s me! James! I used to host The Frozen Envelope, but for the time being, I’m the new host of Locked on Knicks. Wait, wut? I bet a lot of you know Jared Dubin, the guy who hosted the first 149 episodes of Locked on Knicks. Jared’s dealing with some health stuff, and the Locked On network needed someone to take over hosting duties while he recovers. So, for the time being, I will be hosting Locked on Knicks instead of The Frozen Envelope. What does this mean for you? First, if you subscribe to The Frozen Envelope, you’ll need...

Summer League Game Thread: Knicks vs. Mavericks 7/01/17

It’s sports. The NBA playoffs were like pro wrestling—expertly choreographed action, pre-determined winner. Now we get back to the REAL games! Yes, the chaos of Summer League basketball has returned.
