david lee... welcome to knicks folklore! how long till the trent tucker david lee sportscenter spot?
out of the 4 isiah draft picks, who would have thought all of them would be panning out? balkman looks fine, and seems just as valuable as a marcus williams. frye still shows flashes, but hasn't shaken the 'soft' tag [trade him now i say]. i give nate a hard time but he's got trade value. i'd love isiah to move him for a pick. ok i hate nate i admit it.
but david lee! damn this guy looks like an all-nba defensive player. ok maybe 2nd teamer. ok ok he's just really solid. he seems to put himself in the right spot at the right time constantly. that last .1 second shot was kinda lucky, but he's been all ben wallace recently.
that said, i give him 2-3 years of shreddingness before he ends up a plodder like mo taylor or malik rose. but i'm not mad!
gerald wallace is back? double figures in the last 4 with some steals and blocks! two weeks ago who'd a thunk? i drafted him high [4th round] in 2 drafts so i've been hurting up until now. c'mon dude keep it up!
the big three 2nd-year point guards are shredding. paul and deron are all-stars, and felton is crazy when brevin knight aka nightcrawler is hurt. which is a lot!
overheard at the bodega tonight: 'YOU KNOW WHO'S REALLY GOOD? WHO'S BRINGING IT? KILLING IT? yeah can i get a lotto ticket and chapstick YAO MING THAT'S WHO! EDDY THIS EDDY THAT!'
the nets are a joke. richard jefferson transformed into a really average player. injuries? maybe. he's just not making it happen. jason kidd is sick though. if he averages a triple double i will flip. his freakshow son's head will explode like a garbage pail kidd.
talking about splosions, iggy's gonna blow up in philly.
al jefferson... all-star?
maybe 20/13 was too much to ask for from dwight howard. ditto chris bosh. the david robinson comparisons will have to wait a bit. but not too long...
gay? roy? morrison? it's kinda all about bargnani!
eddie griffin is a mess. what the fuck. this guy has all the tools. stop getting drunk and jacking off to porn in your car! get to practice! hang out with KG! do SOMETHING right. anything! i'm also sad mccants is so hurt. he looked promising last season.
denver's gonna be a mess. love AI as a fan, but i'm glad he's not on my team. that locker room is gonna be tense. good thing kmart is at home... what a collection of head cases!
how bout some lakers hate? that team is going nowhere with kobe chucking like that. and kwame looks more like olowakandi every day. sure he's had some nice lines, but on the court he looks lost. he's got 'that look' in his eye. the kandiman!
and andreas, what the fuck is maggette doing on the bench for your clips. real talk. dude needs to be getting more PT.

isiah's problem isn't that he sent out goons, or that he talks shit to other team's players [a big no-no].
should he have warned melo to watch his back? probably not. he just should've sent collins out to get him. and that's enough warning. mardy collins is on the floor. karl better get his starters out. or at least tell them not to fast-break. sheesh.
isiah's problem lies in his first few months of his tenure. by bringing in marbury [a good basketball move] and making him the focal point, he alienated the entire team of veterans. it's always been an issue of trust with zeke and his players. or lack thereof. and it's still happening with this squad.
it's important that he doesn't clean house again. dolan called for francis? ok. keep him. keep crawford. keep marbury [PLEASE]. keep eddy curry. if not for any other reason than for team morale.
if anything, what zeke did during denvergate only endears him to his players. you think these guys play to be role models? they play for themselves and each other. and that's fair enough.
i'm tired of barkley getting on his soapbox or walton pining for when 'players played the right way'. in his era, of course.
these vets who have the mic want to preserve their legacy. last time i remembered sir charles was throwing dudes around and talking shit. xavier mcdaniel was a sweetheart, i'm sure. bill laimbeer? what a nice guy.
if anything, the nba in the late-stern era is soft. more hard fouls! more jarring! bring the excitement back...
also, george karl is a smug fuck.

ok so i don't think melo is THAT much of a pussy. i mean, he sucker punched someone and ran. ok haha that was pretty weak. he's never going to live that down.
i think i saw marcus camby carry a chair into the locker room. somewhere in houston a van gundy shudders...
nate rob is my least favorite NBA player. fuck that guy! why does he always let his napoleon complex get his team into trouble!? i mean, the hit was made. JR smith was thrown to the floor. no need to chest bump your way into a melee. fuck this guy. they should just make a nate rob mascot suit for him and he can pound his chest all game long. just not on the court please.
jared f'n jeffries! a new dude who fucking stands up for his bro's! i'm pumped! he was gonna murder melo!
zeke also gets a thumbs up for sending out the goons. we knicks fans always pine for the mason oakley days, and then on WFAN all day i hear 'isiah's a thug!'. WHAT? this is his home court! like a hard foul has never happened before. at least isiah cares!
najera looks so stressed in every pic i see of this mess.
i'm all out of thoughts. people should chuzzill. fights happen all the time. AM radio callers who are screaming about 'rap music's influence' on the nba should relax. rudy T will tell you it has nothing to do with music.
