2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Clippers

Well, you certainly can’t say that the Knicks are not an interesting team to follow, at the very least. The Los Angeles Clippers come to MSG tonight as the Knicks are in the midst of some turmoil surrounding whether or not Carmelo Anthony plans on exercising his no trade clause or not. I joked the other day that Melo exercising his no trade clause is like the villain in a horror film. Until he literally does so, don’t believe it’s done. It might look like it’s done, but until it is actually done, beware! But yeah, weird game tonight. Jeff …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Lakers

NBA Game Times make absolutely no sense. Some days the Knicks play a 7, some days they play at 7:30. Is there a reason for the difference? I can’t see any. Anyhow, the Knicks host the Lakers.

They’ll make it up later when they start losing in droves. Let’s go? Knicks!
