      Do we really have 4 more days until the playoffs start? The suspense is killing me!

      I think the fans are gonna blow the roof off of MSG on Saturday, but I hope the fans hold off on the “Boston sucks” chants under the circumstances.

      I know. The fact that I can’t fast forward the rest of this week is utter bullshit. I’m going to the game tonight, really hoping for a Q sighting and maybe a couple of double-fist head taps. Also hoping for another scoring explosion from Chris “The Predator/War Horse” Copeland.

      I agree that the energy will be incredible on Saturday and fully expect it to be respectful. After all, as a city, we have a unique ability to understand what Boston is going through right now.

      Kevin Durant won’t be playing tonight, so Carmelo Anthony will win the scoring title this season. Great year for the Knicks.

      Last story I saw said Brooks was going to play Durant but limit his minutes. What I’m wondering is the math of it. They’ve said that if Melo doesn’t play in the finale, Durant would have to score 70 points to beat his average. But if Melo plays a few minutes just to keep from getting rusty and scores, say, 8 points, does that reduce his average enough to give Durant a more realistic shot?

      Melo’s going to win the title no matter what, it seems; I’m just curious.

      alsep73: But if Melo plays a few minutes just to keep from getting rusty and scores, say, 8 points, does that reduce his average enough to give Durant a more realistic shot?

      Durant is officially sitting out. ‘Melo has scored 1,920 in 67 games for an avg. of 28.65671642. KD 2,280 in 81 games for an average of 28.14814815. If Carmelo were to play and go scoreless tonight he would still win the title. If KD were to have a change of heart and play AND Melo were to play KD would need to score 36 more than Melo.

      jon abbey:
      now let’s sign Delonte West.

      Now that sheed is supposedly retired. we need to pick up another big quickly. Can we pick up solomon again? or are we sol with him?

    7. Frank

      we definitely need to sign a big now — all we have in the middle is Chandler (hurt), Martin (hurt), Camby (hurt). Copeland has played center but in the playoffs that will turn into a layup drill on the defensive end.

      Gadzuric?

      Luke Harangody? Averaging 20 and 12 and shooting 40% from 3 in the D-League?

    8. Loathing

      Dear Mr. Grunwald…when I suggested Barron, I was actually joking…but with the game he had, thank you for taking my joke seriously.
