    1. Continuation from yesterday….to quote BC:

      This team, man, this fucking team…it’s like dysfunction city…

      Watch….after PJax gets ousted for whatever reason (health, buyout, etc.), I bet Isaiah is going to be the next president. Wouldn’t that be a doozy?

      The dysfunction starts with Jimmy D. As long as he owns the team, this cloud will hover over the franchise. Even a “star” like Melo, who adds to this cloud.

    2. There are few grounds for ever being able to justifiably stop being a fan of a basketball team you grew up watching but the return of Isiah would incontestably be one of them. If that happens I’ll probably stop being a Knicks fan until Dolan’s dead; there’s only so much abuse a fanbase can take.

    3. BTW AD almost recorded at quadruple double last night

      16-28 FGM 4-6 FT 14RB 7AS 1STL 9BLK 2TO 1PF 36PTS

      I would probably cut a hand off for AD on the Knicks.

    4. Such is the power of greed: perfectly decent women become complete whores the night they meet George Clooney. They want what he has and will do anything and will overlook whatever flaws he may have in order to get it.

      If you really feel the need to post an anti-Jackson screed every day, can you at least leave the casual misogyny at home?

    5. Such is the power of greed: perfectly decent women become complete whores the night they meet George Clooney. They want what he has and will do anything and will overlook whatever flaws he may have in order to get it. Disappointment and bitterness is always the result. Similary, a lot of Knicks fans are willing to look the other way for as long as they hold hope Phil Jackson will deliver their dreams. Disappointment and bitterness will be the result.

      When you formally apply to be Dolan’s official e-mail ghost writer, this can be your writing sample.

    6. If you really feel the need to post an anti-Jackson screed every day, can you at least leave the casual misogyny at home?

      the casual misogyny grates, but overall post #4 is a truly impressive work of self-caricature. 10/10, bravo Luke, bravo.

      But really that’s some old testament shit being spewed.

      Before today I just didn’t like you because your basketball analysis was poor, repetitive, and downright bizarre at times. Now that you’ve revealed yourself to be a genuinely unpleasant human being, I think it’s time for you to go.

    8. If we all ever met up for a happy hour somewhere in the city, this would be one hell of an interesting group. First round of shots is on Captain Luke to grease the social wheels? I’ll take a Ketel One or Jame-O plz, thanks! lol

    9. Let’s not become an unruly mob here. At the very least, he has an above-average grasp of standard written English. I think he could make it all the way to the Daily News if he tried.

    10. “post #4 is a truly impressive work of self-caricature. 10/10, bravo Luke, bravo.”
      Many of you guys must remember Dogrufus, the guy who appeared in the playoffs a few years ago and, every day, posted progressively more bizarre negative posts, to which people responded progressively more angrily. Then, one day, he posted something truly bizarre and someone responded, “You have almost become a caricature of yourself.” Dogrufus responded with one word — “Almost?” and it suddenly hit me that he was putting everyone on all along. Captain Luke is Dogrufus. I would bet on it.

    11. “What? Didn’t they like me for what I am? Was I just used? Such a gaping wound in my heart, those news.” – George Clooney

    12. Dogrufus responded with one word — “Almost?” and it suddenly hit me that he was putting everyone on all along.

      Lol as an observer of the Dogrufus saga, that was some wild shit.
