Grantland recaps the end of the Knicks season

Grantland, a new website from ESPN's Bill Simmons

If you called Bill Simmons the king of sports reporting you would be wrong. He is the emperor. His book, cleverly titled 'The Book of Basketball', debuted at the top of the New York Times bestsellers list. The BS report is the most heavily sports podcast on iTunes, even though he spends as much (if not more) time talking about Boston and reality television as he does current events in the NBA, MLB and beyond. Soon the highly anticipated and "top secret" Grantland will go public and fans will be able to get even more of the "Sports Guy" than they had before. Until recently Simmons hadn't released much information about his new project. All fans knew were a list of contributors who ranged from veteran journalist, music bloggers and up and coming sports writers like Katie Baker, formerly of Deadspin.com.

Katie Baker knows how to write. I don't just mean she's great with grammer and knows how to properly punctuate a sentence, she actually knows how to keep a reader interested. Baker isn't shy about being a Knicks fan. She attended some of the biggest games at MSG this season and now in an article created to give fans a sneak peak at Grantland, she shares her experiences from the Knicks past season including Melo's first game as a Knick and watching the team get swept by the Celtics in the first round of the playoffs.

Knicks fans will all be able to relate to Baker when it comes to the roller coaster of emotions the 2010-2011 season brought to fans in New York. It's a must read whether you're a fan still in mourning or if you've already pulled out your Yankees hat and moved on.
