Knicks trade Marcus Camby, Steve Novak, and multiple picks for Rajon Rondo

Just kidding it’s Andrea Bargnani. League sources abound are reporting that the Knicks and Raptors are finalizing a deal that would send the much-maligned Bargnani to New York in exchange for Stave Novak, Marcus Camby, a future first round pick (2016, over which Denver maintains swap rights), two future second rounders, and a pencil sharpener. The pencil sharpener works just fine. This totally came out of nowhere. He we were still kvetching pathetic about drafting a slumping college shooter ahead of oodles of upside, and then, this: So… Twitter went berserk, and for a lot of right reasons: Bargnani has …continue reading

Knicks Draft Tim Hardaway… JUNIOR!

The pick is in, you first heard it from Woj about four hours ago, and it’s…. Meh. Now, I grew up rooting for Michigan State and not the fucking Miami Heat so you can see how this might be a generational loathing thing for me. Not that that’s fair; just being honest. Tim Hardaway has the pedigree. That’s true. He can shoot the basketball. That’s also true. He’s “used to the big stage.” I guess, in a way. He also went through the worst slump since, like, the dinosaurs. He benefited greatly not only from a very, very good point …continue reading

Granted, in recent years due to the massive flurries of trades and wheelin’ n’ dealin’  (Stepien Rule notwithstanding) we Knicker-backers often have our grubby noses pressed firmly against the storefront window, befogging it and greedily eyeing all the shiny new 1st round toys just waiting to be snapped up, wrapped in their finest, Big n’ Tall suits and festooned with a New Era cap proclaiming their undying fealty to Cablevision and its affiliated companies. In case you’ve gone through a few years of heavy therapeutic/self-administered (possibly extra-legal) …continue reading
