I’m just impressed that out of all the personal grudges that had a chance to spill over into actual conflict tonight, he somehow managed not to be involved in a single one. Good game, K-Mart. Let’s see it against a …continue reading
I think Steve Kerr is conducting an intervention with Son of Wood. Anyhoo, here are some thoughts from Jeremy Gordon of Brooklyn’s Finest, a gent who’s suffered through almost as much terrible basketball as we have. 1. Hello fellow resident of basketball purgatory! It’s tough to say, but for Knicks fans, one of the few respites from the near-constant awful basketball and general ridicule has been watching you, our fellow Metropolitan team, suffer and struggle. (We’re petty like that) for one, thought BK had assembled a 50-55 win team. In brief, what’s gone wrong? Basically everything? From the beginning this …continue reading

Get us started Mike! New York is buzzing…Nope that’s snoring. Netsest Man In the World Oh Cole, someday you’ll find the right coach. How I’ll be watching the game tonight.

MVP!” from the Portland fans. [New York Times] N.B.A. Roundup: N.B.A. Postpones Game in Mexico City After Smoke Fills Arena (Thu, 05 Dec 2013 05:43:53 GMT) A generator malfunction outside the arena prevented the Spurs and the Timberwolves from playing the first regular-season N.B.A. game in Mexico since 1997.

It’s been an interesting week on the New York blogosphere, with hometown hero Jim Cavan pondering whether the Knicks should trade Carmelo Anthony over at Bleacher Report and friends Jared Dubin and netw3rk exchanging e-mails about whether or not to blow up the team (unclear on whether they mean that literally) at Grantland.
