What could be better than a quick sojourn to Florida for Thanksgiving just as winter is beginning to set in up north? Apparently, anything, so far as the Knicks are concerned. They couldn’t get on a plane back to New York fast enough after Wednesday’s appropriately recapped performance, and hopefully an exorbitant meal and the nostalgic sight of a behemoth-sized Snoopy floating through the streets gave the Knicks back whatever they lost in the Sunshine State.

With that in mind, I thought I’d turn my attention to a couple of assets controlled by the Knicks, that are sometimes out of sight and out of mind. The two assets in question are our dear European Knicks – Louis Labeyrie and Guillermo “Willy” Hernangomez. You remember them, right? They’re the Knicks we haven’t invited to meet the parents yet. It’s become increasingly possible to follow …continue reading
