HBO's "Glickman"

by Jake Kring-Schreifels

In the latest HBO documentary, Glickman, about revered sportscaster Marty Glickman premiering tonight at 9pm, director James Freedman seems intent on paying homage to his subject’s humanity just as much as his legendary resume of work. The first athlete turned play-by-play commentator, Glickman, who passed away in 2001, became a pioneer for sportscasters, calling everything from basketball and football at the professional level to the trotters at Yonkers raceway and inspiring listeners and future broadcasters, notably many who came through the halls at WFUV.

New Look Knicks Seeking Revenge Against Celtics

Just last spring the Knicks were eliminated in five quick games by the Miami Heat, but for Knick fans that feels like a decade ago, as the team had their best regular season in nearly twenty years. In a short few months fans have all but forgotten about Linsanity and barely recall two Aprils back where the team was quickly swept by the Boston Celtics in the first-round.  

Knicks' Competent Leadership a Major Asset

After Pat Riley’s bolted town for Miami following the 1994-1995 season the likes of Don Nelson, Jeff Van Gundy, Don Chaney, Lenny Wilkins, Larry Brown, Isiah Thomas and Mike D’Antoni have come to lead the Knicks back to the promised land. But, all failed. In fact the group failed to land even a single division crown.

At long last behind the leadership of Mike Woodson, the Knicks first round draft choice in 1980, the franchise has secured their first division title in 19 seasons and first 50 win season in over a decade. Both achievements were goals he set for his team at the start of the season, despite New York being overlooked by many (in fact, not one of the 35 ESPN.com NBA writers picked them to win the Atlantic).
