Since the Knicks are visiting the Clippers, there are, of course, a bunch of “maybe Melo will go to the Clippers” stories, which are nonsense. The main story about Melo seeming like he might want to leave opened with Melo saying something along the lines of, “Nah, don’t even start with this” so clearly nothing has actually changed with regards to Melo wanting to leave.
But hey, it wouldn’t hurt for Melo to score 60 in a close Knicks loss tonight! Maybe it would move the Clippers to actually make a real offer for Melo. So far they have not.
I obviously want the Knicks to lose all of these games, but I would sort of like to see them at least come close. That Nets game I went to on Thursday, my wife was all, “Boy, I felt sorry for you. You wanted them to lose and yet it was still so depressing to watch. The games during the commercials were the only thing interesting about the game.” Which is true. Them not even being in these games is depressing. It’s like, “Oh, so they can’t even come close to beating the worst team in the NBA, but adding one draft pick will change things?” Seems hard to believe.
Anyhow, let’s go? Knicks!
