From ESPN NY:
With one of the largest snowstorms in recent history bearing down on the New York City area, the NBA has postponed the New York Knicks’ and Brooklyn Nets’ home games scheduled for Monday night.
With the National Weather Service describing this storm as a “crippling and potentially historic” blizzard, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency on Monday. Forecast projections for New York City and areas surrounding it predict that up to 20 to 30 inches of snow could hit the area over the next two days.
The Knicks’ game against the Sacramento Kings has been rescheduled for March 3. The Nets’ game against the Portland Trail Blazers has been rescheduled for April 6.
This could be a valuable snow-out for tanking purposes, as Melo would likely play tonight but might not be still playing for the team in March if he does, in fact, get his knee surgery after the All Star Game.
On a personal note, my wife and I had good seats for Louis CK’s show at the Garden on Tuesday night, which was also canceled. Stupid snow!
