    One thought to “Knicks Morning News (2019.03.18)”

    1. That Hezonja block on LeBron has to be the greatest thing to happen at MSG all season long. So epic how Mario stayed with it, straight up blocked the fadeaway, and then stared LeBron down until his soul left from his body.

      Things have to be real bad over there in Lakers Land if he’s mailing in games like this. Lebron always cherished tearing apart the Knicks in MSG and now he’s Mario Hezonja’s bitch. Sad.
