  1. Does anybody else think Cleanthony Early is the son of one of the cast members of “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids”? I was thinking maybe Weird Harold.

  2. What made that so glorious was that we won it AND the entire city loved that team and the way it played.

    @Stratomatic – It was the BEST! (I figured you were around my age. Do people even play Stratomatic anymore? (I did football Strat)

  3. At the start of the season we were way over the luxury cap, had 2 of the top 4 highest paid players in the NBA, and now we’re the worst team on the league and an undrafted rookie is probably the best player in our starting lineup. What a fucking shitshow

  4. It’s hard for me to imagine this team winning another game this season. As is stands now, this has to be the worst NBA team ever.

  5. Knicks players with a TS% over .540:

    Stoudemire and Prigioni

    Oh wait! The are not Knicks players anymore!

  6. The Westies are also in last place, so there’s that. Anyone know why Thanasis missed the last couple games?

  7. I find the idea of paying Monroe max money repugnant. But hey, Melo got it…

    Turning the game on finally. Don’t mess with me Knicks.

  8. Calderon’s injury might be a blessing in disguise because it forces Fish to play Shved at the 1. There’s a HUGE difference in his stats when he plays the 1 versus the 2. He’s an abysmal shooter but he’s elite at getting to the line and he’s also a skilled passer. He may very well end up being a bust, but at least we will have given him the opportunity to succeed at his most promising position. Our crack #28 analytics department never would have figured this out had Calderon still been healthy….to be fair it’s not the department that’s the problem, it’s Fish and Phil.

  9. No Melo, no Stat, no Jose, limited Timmy, and somehow we don’t suck on defense.

    J Smith couldn’t stop Drummond with a baseball bat though

  10. If Bargs’ only accomplishment as a Knick will have been to prevent Phil from signing Monroe, then Bargs’ deal will have been worth it.

  11. Galloway should pay a hefty fine for that game tying shot, he better make up for it with a shitty overtime.

  12. Last double overtime game since the classic moment last season when Chandler dunked the ball on his own head, thus negating the basket.

  13. I want no part of Reggie Jackson

    What I don’t get is why Phil Jackson event wants him. He is not a Triangle-type point.

  14. Again, I love when Clyde gets disgusted by poor fundamentals. Smith helping the tank! Amundson not helping!

  15. Monroe hurting the tank. But Philly won, so I’m cool with this possible win. Larkin tanked that three.

  16. Yeah, Amundson is an NBA player.

    I think that’s likely all he’s hoping for at this point in his career. Just keeping getting ‘dem checks, as they say.

  17. This is a nice win. Don’t want too many more, but I enjoyed this one. Fish at least got them still playing hard

  18. Amundson works hard, will always get a roster spot.. and Bargs with 25 points, 12 rebounds.. should have had that before trade deadline

  19. Don Pablo with 5 dimes and 2 steals in 12 minutes tonight.

    “He needs to foul out on that play”

    Clyde the GOAT

  20. Rockets fans were very negative on twitter about Pablo at the trade deadline, and they love him already. I miss that guy

  21. This could be the turning point of the season!! Actually I was rooting for them to win once it got to OT and Im glad they did. They arent going to win many more so let them enjoy the few they do win, they deserve it after the effort they showed tonight.

  22. Amundson shows just how much value a mobile big can have on both sides of the ball. Amundson>Cole, Towns>Okafor.

  23. If Okafor can learn to shoot FTs his defense might not matter. He’s such a weird player I’d probably lean Towns, but its close

  24. This win was so sad.

    I’m listening to the players being interviewed. One after the other they’re either thanking God or saying how unbelievable the win was. Yikes. It’s as if they hadn’t won a game in a month!

  25. I was just playing around with the ESPN lottery machine and ugh, waaaaaaaaay too many times does it have the Knicks ending up with Mudiay. One time even picking him over Towns!!

  26. I’d happily take Russell 3rd 4th or (shudder) 5th, but the draft is to big heavy for me to want to chance Mudiay

  27. Yeah, I dunno why ESPN thinks the Knicks will take Mudiay over Russell.

    By the way, Jackson apparently is going to be fined for commenting about how Russell is a great prospect.

  28. The Lakers really need to start buying guys out. Three wins in a row is ridiculous when they lose their draft pick if they fall outside of the top five of the lottery (they’re currently fourth). Can you imagine if the Sixers get the #1 pick and the #6 pick?!?!

  29. Instead of the Lee trade Frank suggested yesterday, I wonder if Portland would trade Batum to keep Matthews and Lopez since they have Afflalo now. Depending on what Matthews, Lopez, and Aldridge get they could be really over the Tax line. They also will max out Lillard the following summer when Batum contract is up so it could be a now or later situation.

  30. The problem is that Afflalo has a player option for next season that he’s likely to decline, so he’ll likely be a free agent, as well.

  31. I guess somebody finally got around to telling Bargnani that this is a contract year, huh?

  32. Why all the Monroe hate?

    Sure he had a tough time with Bargnani, but Bargs has always been a nightmare matchup for traditional PFs and Cs teh entire time. It just rarely matters much because Bargs can translate it into high efficiency scoring on a consistent basis. Do I think Monroe is a max player? No. But he’s a VERY good player.

  33. The problem is that Afflalo has a player option for next season that he’s likely to decline, so he’ll likely be a free agent, as well.

    You think so? I would think he would wait a year when everyone has space. A contending team would even spend a good chunk of their space on him when the cap goes up.

    However, if does opt out he would still be cheaper than Batum going forward.

    Batum has always been in trade rumors but maybe they keep him and wait until next years deadline. If he does come available I hope the Knicks try to jump and get him.
