  1. Awful blow for the Nets. Russell had his knee scoped and is out indefinitely. Also, it absolutely un-shocking news, Derrick Rose is out for 2 weeks.
  2. Yankees - 2018 and beyond

    It's doubly remarkable because (1) 145 pitches in-and-of-itself is a lot of pitches and unheard of in today's game and (2) that Hawkins was extremely efficient in throwing only 145 pitches in 12 innings (that's only about 12 pitches per inning).
  3. I agree. Watch Knicks get blown out, but at least on paper, the Knicks are a bad matchup for Raptors because Raptors don't shoot a lot of 3s and 3 pt D is the Knicks Achilles' heel.
  4. Crazy stat for On-this-day-in-Knicks-History, on November 17, 2000, the Knicks beat the Suns 90-85 in Phoenix. Jason Kidd had a quadruple double, with one of the categories being turnovers: 18 PT, 12 RB, 10 AST, 14 TO. Knicks' starting 5 were LJ, Camby, Houston, Spree & Ward and the Suns' starting 5 were Kidd, Marion, Cliff Robinson, Mario Elie & Corie Blount. Both teams ended up making the postseason that year https://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/200011170PHO.html

    Holy crap, Hawkins threw 145 pitches that game. I missed much of that era by being in the service. Wearing my Yankee hat around people knew I was from NY because the team sucked and no one outside NY would wear it.

    It was actually a Star Wars reference
  7. The irony is that every good thing Phil did, he then tried to **** it up. Being a good-hearted criminal doesn't keep you out of jail. Yes, Phil made good decisions in drafting KP, Willy and Frank. But he also drafted Early and Giannis' sucky older brother, and drafted Grant, whom he traded a year later for Zombie Derek Rose. He then tried to trade KP. Phil also gave Melo a NTC, which completely tied his hands to make a trade beneficial to the Knicks. Fortunately, Perry was able to get a good haul. He also signed the corpse of Joakim Noah to $72 million. He also alienated agents, opposing executives and even opposing players although he's in the relationship-making business. The bottom line is that Phil made what turned out to be great draft picks which he wholly undermined by being a stubborn old dick
  8. I was reading articles on Ntilikina-Clyde connection, and I had forgotten how good the Clyde-Willis Reed teams were. I was too you young for that period, but that run was amazing given how great some of the other teams were such as the Kareem Bucks, the Celtics and Lakers. The Clyde-Reed Knicks went to SIX straight Eastern Conference Finals, went to 3 NBA Finals and as we all know, won 2 titles. Incredible run.
  9. If the site still had a facepalm emoji, this would be a perfect response. Dolan is an idiot, but Phil gave him a 1000 reasons to fire him and him getting the axe was well deserved.

    OK, Scott Palpatine

    Absolutely, and he knows 5 languages including Japanese! He'd be the only manager who could talk to all his players without a translator.
  12. LOL. When I was writing that post I originally called it "a mini-Bobby Bonilla situation" but deleted it out of respect for you. At least it would only be for 11 years and not for 20 plus. Also, Dolan would have the option of just paying the money upfront and then there'd only be the imaginary cap hit each year.
  13. Here's a great video on the non-box score impact McBuckets had last night. He was directing the defense, diving for loose balls, playing great pick-and-role D: The Melo trade may go down as one of the best in the last 30 yrs.
