So I currently live near Leesburg, Virginia, which isn’t interesting for the vast majority of the year, but today it definitely is, as we are expecting #SnowtoriousBIG to run up in our club iced out from head to toe to dump 2 feet or more of Cristal (which is what I will call snow from now on) on top of our domes. Shit could get real, ya’ll. With that being said, I’m well-stocked on the necessities (alcohol and fully-charged portable electronic devices), but if my power goes out, be patient on the recap.

Rodney Hood is a guy I like a lot, but he’s up and down and doesn’t strike me as the sort of guy that gives the Knicks fits. I wrote that in the game thread.
