    1. wow this derrick rose stuff is really disturbing.

      anyone know why this is a civil case and not a criminal one?

    2. Topic for conversation: Let’s say the Knicks had dropped to the 5th pick in 2015 draft and ended up with Hezonja. What are the consequences? They probably win maybe… 25 games? Is Phil Jackson still GM? Is Melo still on the team? Is Henzonja still on the team? How would Phil have responded to the teams’ struggles? What are some excuses Charley Rosen would have made for Phil?

    3. All we can say for sure is that is that the Phil files would have reported Jackson slouching comfortably on a Natuzzi recliner listening to a Cat Stevens tribute band bootleg, remarking “Dario reminds me of an exotic Jud Buechler, who I originally signed to be BJ Armstrong’s acupuncturist but made the rotation due to clerical error. Like Jud, Dario will need time to adapt to the NBA lifestyle and relax his grip on personal identity in favor of a team orientation. Dario is accustomed to being the offensive focal point in his native Mypos, where he was only the seventh person to ever dribble a basketball. He is actually nine inches taller than his listed height, which makes it difficult for him get into an appropriate defensive crouch. He likes to shoots from distances that award an extra point to the team if it is successful, but the rotation on his shot tends to sublimate because he was born with a right index finger two centimeters shorter than normal.”

    4. Calderon/Grant playing well together over 89 minutes doesn’t really say much other than “hey maybe try this some more”.

    5. Calderon/Grant playing well together over 89 minutes doesn’t really say much other than “hey maybe try this some more”.

      Looks like it also said to the front offices of the Knicks and the Bulls “split this lethal duo now or they’re going to demand max contracts !!!”

    6. Agreed DRed, but I like that option a lot more than the “hey maybe trade them both for a terrible player” one

    7. A little known fact about the 2015-16 season is that none of Jose Calderon’s 209 FGM helped his team win the basketball games.

    8. Yeah, but what about all the field goal attempts that Calderon DIDN’T take and miss? Real ruff rydahs aren’t afraid to make out-of-control drives to the rim, throw up errant shots that miss, then complain about the foul call that never comes.

    9. Topic for conversation: Let’s say the Knicks had dropped to the 5th pick in 2015 draft and ended up with Hezonja. What are the consequences? They probably win maybe… 25 games?

      I don’t think they were ever going to take Hezonja, even if they fell to #5.
