The Classic Teams NBA 2k18 Left Out

The NBA 2k franchise blew everyone away when they released retro teams in 2k11, but there have been many complaints due to the lack of additions since. Perhaps the resurrection of NBA Live influenced 2k to up the stakes. In NBA 2k18, they are releasing “All-Time” teams: The greatest players to play for all 30 NBA teams. 2k is also releasing 17 new classic teams. As a fan of NBA 2k, I must complain about something. Let’s go over some of the classic that 2k left out. Leave in the…

Swiss Cheese D Mailbag (Feat. Should Melo Leave?)

Swiss Cheese D would not have received as much exposure if not for twitter. Twitter enables me to connect with a tremendous amount of NBA fans. Although it is unfortunate that I only have 140 characters to respond to questions, I can get around that by using my website to answer all of your genius questions. Welcome to the first Swiss Cheese D Q&A. @NBASwissCheeseD should the Knicks resign DRose, costing big money, or look elsewhere for starting PG options? If so, what names stick out? — Jake Silver (@jaSILVERke) December 16,…

Knicks Offseason Review

New York Knicks President Phil Jackson has once again surprised the angry and confused Knicks fans of the world. The Knicks have completely revamped their roster, and this time, it might make sense. Only five players remain on today’s roster compared to last season. Here is a look at the 2016-’17 New York Knicks depth chart: If only this happened like four years ago, then this team would be a legitimate contender. Still this should be an above .500 team that will give Knicks fans a competitive brand of basketball, something that has…

How is Derrick Rose Going to Affect the Knicks Long Term?

Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks traded Robin Lopez, Jose Calderon and Jerian Grant to the Chicago Bulls for Justin Holiday, a 2017 second round pick, and Derrick Rose. This is a trade that might be intriguing to a casual Knicks fan and terrifying to a seasoned Knicks fan. On the surface, this is a classic Knicks trade: acquire an all-star who is past his prime. We can go over the list (Larry Johnson, Glen Rice, Antonio Mcdyess, Stephon Marbury, Penny Hardaway, Steve Francis, Jalen Rose, Amar’e Stoudemire, Chauncey…

How to Fix the Knicks

The Knicks are losing, and it’s upsetting to watch, but it is also inevitable. The Knicks have ten expiring contracts this season, which alone explains the lack of cohesion. How are you supposed to get your players on board with learning a brand new system in the Triangle Offense, when they know they’re not a part of the future? The Knicks came into this season resigning the great Carmelo Anthony. Playing within an incredibly poor Eastern Conference, many Knicks fans, including myself, came into this season with optimism, but the 2014-2015…

Are the New Orleans Pelicans a playoff team?

The New Orleans Pelicans are a sleeper team worth paying attention to this upcoming season. They also have a good chance of making the playoffs. One may beg to differ, as last season was a brutal one. On paper, the 2013-2014 Pelicans had promise. With a new name, and acquisitions of All-Star Jrue Holiday and former rookie of the year Tyreke Evans, the Pelicans looked like a potential force to be reckoned with. So why did they finish with such an unimpressive record of 34-48? Acquiring a game-changing player or…
