Kelly Dwyer writes: How people can keep underestimating David Lee, thinking that he’s a product of a lousy team, easy shots, porous defense, uninspired opponents, lefty fetishism, Chris Duhon, the Washington Wizards … it boggles the mind. 30 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals, zero turnovers in 41:28; that’s a player. That’s someone that’s worth your time. It was true in 2005, it’s true today. The Wizards get really caught up here and leave the most important man unguarded.
Washington at New York, 7:30pm. Testing out the blog/forum link.

Hello all. Thomas B. here with the second installment of Knicks’ Week in Advance. This article appears exclusively on Knickerblogger.net (everyone else-including Stern Must Go-turned me down). I will compare the Knicks’ Four Factors to those of their opponents this week. I’m glad the Knicks beat the Wizards Saturday. The win spared me from drafting an open that parodies those Time Life Books commercials from the 1980s: November 2008. The administrator of a popular blog contacts a man of limited basketball knowledge and invites him to join the staff. Shortly thereafter, the Knicks begin a losing streak that has yet …continue reading
TB: [Knicks won the last meeting 114-108.] What can you say? Almost nothing is going right for Washington. The Wizards are one of the worst teams on both offense (27th) and defense (27th). They are without two of last year’s starters; Gilbert Arenas will be out until December, and Brendan Haywood may not play at all this year. Combine that with the slow start from Deshawn “You can’t see me” Stevenson, and you get arguably the worst team in the conference. What to watch for: Who is going to guard Caron Butler? Butler dropped 30 on the Knicks and pretty …continue reading

Baron Davis has reportedly agreed to a 5-year, $65 million deal with the Clippers. No offers or signings are official before July 9th, when the the league announces the final salary cap figures. Apparently it takes eight days for a team of chipmunks to work the slide rules over on Park Avenue. Assuming a cap number in the realm of $58,130,000 – what I saw on real GM – just four teams have significant cap room. WIthout Davis, Golden State has the most — about $24 million. However, they also need to save up to re-sign Monta Ellis and Andris Biedrins. …continue reading
