Back to back preseason games?
The third in four nights?
In New Hampshire, of all places?
Alas, our favorite scrivener of that faraway mystic land, Brother Jimmy Cavanicus the Just will not be leaving his combination monastery/artisanal maple syrup manufacturing concern to attend in person, for reasons that to date he has only whispered to the birds, butterflies and grubworms that oddly appear in his footprints. Also, it seams that this torrid schedule of games-that-don’t-count has taken an equal toll on our weary, wanderlusting ‘Bockers. Messrs. Chandler, Anthony, Udrih, Felton and World Peace will be taking a brief sabbatical, perhaps to intermingle with the local gentry, attend a craft fair or two and possibly take in the autumnal foliage, which I hear is positively spectacular this time of the year.
But of course, our concern is for the right noble gentleman that shall be plying their trade. This is what makes preseason hoops actually fun, as opposed to making offerings to various deities that no one shreds a ligament or is ripped limb from limb by Woodson’s emerging full beard.

Given the maladies that have kept a chunk of the regular season rotation off the court, the Knicks are a tad thin at the moment. That means we’ll get to see some serious PT from the starters — Prigioni, Hardaway, Shumpert, Powell, and Bargnani as well as major backup minutes for Aldrich, CJ Leslie, Ike Diogu, Douglas Robers and, last but certainly not least…TOURE’ MURRY!
So, our big question for the evening: Who do y’all think will have a Copeland-esque, totally unexpected 35-point explosion to throttle the dastardly C’s? I think you can guess by the all-caps above who I’m pulling for.
Enjoy the game!
