The Knicks have just had some awesome luck these last few games, huh? First, Russell Westbrook returns from an injury just in time to face the Knicks and now Dwyane Wade is also choosing now to return to from an injury. Thanks a lot, guys! I’m leaving for a show at the Gramercy right now (5:00 PM), so I don’t know if Melo is playing. He’s currently listed as “questionable” (upgraded from doubtful), so let’s hope that the Knicks get him back! They sure need him. Let’s go Knicks!

After another loss, New York is in dire straits. Despite a change in the front office, there seems to be no change for this perennially losing franchise. During games, they are completely outclassed by their opponent. The flaws of their coach have remained the same since game 1, one of which is the inability to see his own flaws. New York plays so badly, it’s hard to see if the coaching staff has not prepared them for the other team or if the players have just tuned their leader out. But enough about the New York Jets. The Knicks lost …continue reading

Isn’t it just so perfectly Knicks that they get the Olakahoma City Thunder just as Russell Westbrook comes back? Plus, after trying to work out before the game, Melo is officially out for the game, so they get their star back just as the Knicks confirm that they will be without their star. However, if the Melo-less Knicks could hang with a healthy Dallas team, they might be able to do well against a Thunder team that has been garbage without Westbrook. He might not be 100% tonight, also. So there’s hope! Let’s go Knicks!

New York Knicks 102 Final Recap | Box Score 109 Dallas Mavericks Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I’m sure we’re all bracing ourselves for a Eugene O’Neill-esque sea of simmering resentment and forced pleasantries, a slew of social/political/economic issues that you might be dragooned into to “discussing” with various chain mail-forwarding relatives that you haven’t seen in a year (or more), the drinking habits of various grabby, rant-y family members and possibly screwing on a smile when face-to-face with their new significant others, such that you can practically see the unspoken cartoon thought bubbles bobbing menacingly above everyone’s head: “Hey, where’s Aunt …continue reading
