Quick Recap: Knicks vs. All the Warriors

“A-a-a-are you a warrior? Killer? Slicin’ s*^% like a samurai. The Ol’ Northern Cali basketball…”

Did you think the Knicks 1st quarter was real? LULZ. There’s is no Dana, only Zuul. Melo played valiantly, and I was proud to see the Knickerfellas playing their tails off until the last buzzer, including Sasha Vujacic who was like a marine in a bad war movie, shouting, “Get some!!! Get some!!!!” as 1000s of enemies descend on him. Thanasis Antetokounmpo got a little hype and the Knicks left for the night, defeated and already moving on. Whaddaya gonna do?

The best moment of that game was Melo putting his hand on Curry’s forehead, just to leave a little love mark. That scar’s gonna win the NBA Finals MVP, so maybe we can kind of get our title by proxy.

The truth is, the Knicks played pretty sloppy basketball and the Warriors never play sloppy basketball. It could have been much worse had Curry gone Super Saiyan, but it was a swift and merciless killing in the second half anyway. Clyde compared the Warriors’ shooting to a video game, and I’m not sure he’s ever seen a video game played in person. I think he probably watched Tron once when a lady friend suggested it.

Aaaaaaanyway…..on to the next one.

  1. Green is awesome. I love how he reacted to his slightly off performance last night. I mean, I didn’t like it in the whole “it sucked for the Knicks” sense, but just in terms of appreciating a good performance from an All-Star.

    Obviously, the odds were bad for the Knicks period, but that early second foul by Porxingis on Green was a really bad foul. They need him so much. Just let Green get the two points. It wasn’t worth it. Then again, Porzingis is also just 20 years old. He’ll figure stuff like that out as he ages.

  2. Green is a marvel. How did he drop into the 2nd round? Finding a guy who competes for the MVP in the 2nd round is how you build a dynasty.

  3. The Warriors are a machine. You just knew they were going to pull away in the 3rd and that’s exactly what they did. LeBron might get swept in the Finals. I feel sorta bad for him.

  4. Funny how certain people mention how Klay blew up without mentioning who helped him along the way. Convenient though.

    Yeah, Klay’s been struggling most of the season, first good game in a long time.

    If I was going to second guess Fisher at all, and it wouldn’t have made that much difference, he needed to take Zinger out of the game. KP guarding Green was embarrassing.

  5. Fish just got a question from a journo from French Guiana asking why Seraphin didn’t play. I’m not making that up

  6. Draymond Green was a senior when he was drafted and his college stats don’t really jump out at you and scream “this kid is going to kick ass” like one Buddy Hield of the Oklahoma Sooners. I thought he should have been a first rounder but guys are usually punished by the draft process for staying in school.

    The age factor hurt him, but his size was the biggest factor in his drop. It’s just a historically common thing – undersized 4s drop all the time. Whether fair or not. And when they work out, they tend to be the biggest steals (David Lee was an example in Knick history). Green went #35, Paul Millsap wasn’t taken until #47 in his season!

  8. Heck, looking at the most recent draft steals, a common theme is undersized players period working out (not just 4s). But really, the undersized players who make it tend to be the exceptions, not the rule.

    Well he had a nice game last night. Oh wait, was that that sarcasm thing again. How adorable of you.

  10. Afflalo is pretty much the same player he’s been for the last few years, which is a mediocre player but not a bad one.
