    1. The Honorable Cock Jowles

      I would not want to be the team paying a 30-year-old Butler $110M over four or $190M over five to be a disgruntled asshole to my young stars. Is it normal to bring your agent to a road game?

    2. Grocer

      I hope not getting interested in trading for him means Merry & Pills aren’t interested in signing him at all. That would suck so bad.

    3. The Honorable Cock Jowles

      I’m going to call this a 40-point blowout. I know how rare those are, but I believe in these Nix.

    4. Z-man

      We’re playing very hard but nothing is falling and the Sixers are shooting so well. I could see us getting back into this one.

    5. Mike Honcho

      If Kornet is the homeless man’s Porzingis, him and Frank developing some chemistry bodes well for Porzingis’ return.

    6. The Honorable Cock Jowles

      There’s Frank slowing down another transition opportunity.

      I’d love to see stats on how often individual players finish a fast-break with a FGA or assist opportunity.

    7. Z-man

      Trier needs to learn that the soft finishing shit that worked in college is gonna get pasted up here.

    8. d-mar

      If TJ McConnell only played against the Knicks, he’d be in the Hall of Fame. They make him look like Steve Nash.

    9. Mike Honcho

      Frank and Hezonja are at +2 for the game so far, and Kornet is somehow at +5. By contrast, Mudiay is -24.

    10. Grocer

      Kornet just doesn’t try to make stupid/difficult passes. Makes him look better than he is. Mud is probably our most capable passer but he tries a bunch of really stupid stuff.

      pt I demand an apology

      Mr. Z-Man,

      You are a sad person. I am just guessing but ill bet that your wife is ugly and your karaoke room has no strobes or futons. In fact ill bet that people dont even come to your parties and beg you to sing hotel california over and over in your karaoke room because that’s how u know people love you and you are a sad person without people loving you and your parties or even having a karaoke room probably. Alcoholic, maybe. I just celebrated the 21st anniversary of the first time i accused a new pen pal of maybe being an alcoholic which is the first thing they teach you to do in AA which you wouldn’t know because you’re such an alcoholic. maybe.

      the in the meantime go hit netsblogger because Knickerblogger doesn’t want you.

      Respectfully!

      I have a karaoke membership at the YMCA and they love me there

      Nah, man…I’m a long way from maybe…

      Who? Pardon me, I’m drinking…

    13. Mike Honcho

      Kornet vs Embiid, Hezonja vs Giannis, Kanter vs Lebron . . . We can’t help creating grudges, can we?

    14. Mike Honcho

      Clyde not happy with Embiid’s shenanigans . . . It’s nice to have commentators who don’t just circlejerk about how great/quirky Embiid is.

    15. The Honorable Cock Jowles

      I was out mowing the lawn. Did I miss some bullshit from the professional troll on the blue team?

    16. Grocer

      Embiid is pissed that Kornet isn’t paying rent, he’s trying typical slum lord tactics to get him to move out of his head.

    17. The Honorable Cock Jowles

      I’ve been trying to figure out who Trier reminds me of, and I got it: Pharrell Williams.

      I wonder if Trier also has enormous, ridiculously-expensive Family Guy paintings all over the great hall of his $10M mansion [vomits in mouth]

      Wilson Chandler is the very definition of journeyman stopgap body — exactly the kind of player that a mid-playoff team grabs as a starter when they trade away depth for a “star” player (Carmelo, now Butler). That guy has had such an unremarkable career, but he’s still grinding.

    18. Grocer

      So close! Solid loss against a much superior team, good work from the kids. 44 minutes is too many from Knox. Nice to not see THj playing injured. I remain deeply confused about Embiid’s hard-on for Kornet.

    19. Mike Honcho

      Knox finishes with +11 in 44 minutes, and Kornet with +25 (!) and Ntilikina with +10. Not bad!

    20. Z-man

      Kornet is a FAR better defender than Novak. Not exactly mobile, but definitely a factor in rim-protection and post defense.

    21. ClashFan

      Yikes, Vonleh -32 in 18 minutes. Frank had a good line except for the usual bad shooting. Led the team in assists with no turnovers.

      Wither Allonzo Trier?

    22. The Honorable Cock Jowles

      Yeah, Kornet can get up there. He’s not quite the shooter Steve was, but he can dunk and protect the rim. Much younger too — wasn’t Novak, like, 30?

    23. ptmilo

      I’ve been waiting to Farfa to roll out the Luke Kornet New York Times Work Diary format and I think this might be the day

    24. Sir Robin

      28, pt: hilarious channeling of the infamous, disproportionate response by D’0h!-lan to an irate fan’s letter. And you did call us getting back into (not necessarily winning) the game, Z.
