Hey guys I’m back! As soon as I can shake off my jetlag, I’ll be back to writing. I know my brain isn’t working at 100%, because I just looked down at the T-Shirt I’ve been wearing for the past 20-30 hours, and noticed that it’s been inside out the whole time. For those rabid fans that can’t wait that long for some of my hoops analysis, I wrote a small post on the Rafer Alston signing on a well known Toronto message board.

A special thank you to my guest-bloggers (arigatou gozaimashita!), who did a professional job keeping my page afloat! As for the summer status of this blog, there is still plenty of action left in the NBA, with a host of free agents still available. The Knicks have about $-50M in salary cap space, so the chance that they’ll land a top free agent is small. However it also means they’re less likely to throw a lot of money at a bad contract.

New York may not sign a big free agent, but I doubt they’ll stand pat this offseason. Isiah Thomas made a flurry of changes when he got the Knicks job, changing 6 of their 12 active players by the time the dust settled. A blockbuster trade may not be in the works, but I expect a few changes to occur before the season starts (including a certain buyout). And of course the summer league starting in July is something to keep an eye on.
