MLK Day Game Thread and KnicksNow Chat: Knicks vs. Nets
So it’s the final round of our little inter-borough donnybrook with the recent arrivals from Brooklyn.
The Martin Luther King Day game is a bit of a tradition here in Knick-ville, even if, ironically, one of the more memorable moments is the 2001 fight between a then-spry Marcus Camby and the Spurs’ Danny Ferry (Yes, the same cat who’s currently the Hawks’ GM. I feel old.). As is his wont, Jeff Van Gundy once again tried to step in and got straight cold-cocked. Alas, youtube doesn’t have any vidz of this seminal moment, so let’s just enjoy the far more appealing and productive violence from the last time these two teams met, when Tyson Chandler positively wrecked the MSG rims.
And, if you’d like to chat during the game with our own Robert Silverman, and read his musings throughout, like an overly-wordy, Knick-loving gnat buzzing in your cyber-ear for the next 2.5 hours, go to KnicksNow.com. There’ll be a button in the upper left hand corner and you can come join the party. Bring snacks!
