Mike Woodson: To fire, or not to fire?

Happy short-week-Monday, pardners. Apologies for it being a bit quiet over here of late. As many of you know, we co-hosted a Knicks meetup this past Saturday along with Posting & Toasting. The turnout was great, even if the game, uhh, wasn’t. Here’s photo evidence of said get-together. Mike, sadly, was off to the side, because his stunningly chiseled features would’ve melted the camera. That’s Robert Silverman, Jonathan Topaz, Jeremy Conlin, Kevin McElroy, and myself.

Knickerblogger goes Rapcast

Happy Monday, good people. Last Friday, I had the opportunity to join Zarar Siddiqi of Raptors Republic for the latest installment of his terrific Rapcast. Among the many things we discussed: The Lowry-to-New York rumors, the state of the Atlantic Division (hint: It’s dogshit), and where our two respective teams plan on going in both the near and long term. It’s incredibly, incredibly depressing. But hopefully it’s also a trifle informative. It should also be noted that Zarar is the mastermind behind the recap template that we at Knickerblogger have thoroughly abused over the last three years. So thank him …continue reading
