Real GM- Knicks’ center Eddy Curry is covered with tattoos, and the latest piece of artwork is in response to being omitted from the All-Star team: “Bruised Never Broken” is written across his chest.

“The NBA is killing me but they can’t break me,” Curry said of the tattoo he got on Monday.

 

Not really much to add here other than it is still funny that Eddy Curry felt so strongly to he was snubbed to be an All-Star reserve that he got a tattoo.  Eddy Curry.  Yes, the guy that set the Knicks franchise back 10 years (along with Isiah Thomas).  Actually that 2nd part isn’t so funny.

F you, Wal-Mart.  The last thing I needed after a close loss and another Melo hat was to see Jeremy Lin’s face laughing at me.  Linsanity was basically the polar opposite of the current state of Knicks basketball.  A bunch of straight up nerds (Lin, Landry Fields, and Steve Novak) winning games they had no business winning as The Garden completely ate it up.  Then we let Lin go for nothing and brought back Fatboy Ray Felton to run the point.

Fast forward to today and we have a team that isn’t even trying to tank losing every game in the most heartbreaking fashion possible.  And I understand that this was probably a mistake made by some Wal-Mart employee making $3 per hour.  But I would hope that Carmelo Anthony is a big enough name to know that he isn’t an Asian basketball player, let alone that his name is not Anthony Carmelo.  But this is just sad.

 

 

When your team starts the season 4-11 and their best player is already injured, you have to get excited about anything that will make you remotely happy.  So I am going to get psyched about the Greek Streak pinning people against the backboard like Leon did during his imaginary games in Above The Rim.  Do I wish that my team was competing for an Eastern Conference title like the Raptors or the #1 pick like the Sixers?  Sure.  But when life hands you lemons as a Knicks fan, you are just grateful that Isiah Thomas isn’t here to tell you that they are strawberries.

Sure the Greek Streak is raw as hell, but an athletic block is more exciting than almost any play on the court that isn’t a dunk.  I almost had more fun watching those YouTube highlights than I have had watching the Knicks all season.  Whenever Phil is done purging the roster of hot garbage,  Antetokounmpo needs to get a call up to The Association.  The guy hustles, plays with an infectious energy, and will immediately be a crowd favorite at The Garden.  Plus I will 100% be talking myself into The Greek Freak signing with the Knicks in a few years just because his brother plays here.  That’s what being a Knicks fan is all about now.  Looking forward to next year’s draft (when we actually have a 1st round pick) and convincing yourself that the best free agents will want to play in a big, cold city with an income tax and a volume shooting superstar.  #Knickstape, baby!

I was a guest on the Sean and Bo Show podcast last night and had a blast with the guys.  We talked about the John Starks/Biggie rumors from “I Got A Story To Tell”, the fact that Roger Goodell is the Teflon Don of the NFL, and the crazy stories that are coming out of the tragic Rob Bironas story.  Sean and Bo both know their stuff and they are a really easy listen.

John Starks and The Oakman on a pair of socks?  Whoever came up with this pair of hoses just redefined the sock game forever.  I only rock sandals in the summer, but this beautiful piece of clothing has me rethinking all of my wardrobe choices now.

The only way these socks are not the greatest things ever created is if Rob Kardashian made them.  But the Kardashians are more about having basketball players inside them than being inside basketball players.

Purchase these socks on Stance Socks.

PS- If they made and marketed a sweatband with a picture of a dripping Patrick Ewing, the creators could print their own money.

First of all, lets just remember that the Knicks didn’t even have a pick until the emancipation of Knicks fans from Raymond Felton.  Thank you Phil.

With pick 34, the Knicks selected Cleanthony Early.  Early was the best player on a team that went undefeated in the regular season, granted in the MVC.  But there have been enough players in the NBA that played against weaker competition and still made a good name for themselves (Steph Curry, Gordon Hayward).  Getting a player that can play on both ends of the court, has been compared to Clifford Robinson, and was predicted to go in the first round at pick 34 is a legit win for the Knicks.  Plus, this:

So on NBAChampionshipBelt.com, they treat each NBA game like a wrestling match.  So the Heat entered the season as the champion, and when they lost their first game, the team that beat them became the champion.  So who ends up taking the title home?  That’s right, YOUR…NEW…YORK…KNICKS!!!!  41 years without a championship?  Who cares!  Can you wear a trophy?  The Zen Master hiring is already paying off in spades.  Go New York, Go New York, Go!

Bleacher Report- Ric Bucher Says Steve Kerr and Tyronn Lue Among Names for Knicks’ Next Coach.  

One of the hottest stories in the league right now is how Phil Jackson will go about rebuilding the New York Knicks.  While current coach Mike Woodson says he’d be happy to coach the triangle offense, Jackson might be looking to make a coaching change this summer.  

So we are between a guy that MJ once smacked up in practice or the guy whose career highlight was getting crossed up and walked over by AI?  So Knicks it hurts.  I wanna believe, I truly do.  But I feel like every time I see Coach Lue on the sidelines, I will see The Answer straight dogging him.

Add in the fact that our owner acts and looks like the owner of The Monstars from Space Jam and I just can’t think rationally about this team anymore.

A wonderful reminder of how the 2013-14 Knicks season has been a true nightmare.  The sad thing is there are plenty of lowlights they couldn’t fit in that montage and many more to come.  Part of me wants Melo to leave so the Knicks can just blow it all up and start from scratch.  The other part of me never wants to watch NBA basketball again.

This feels like it happened 20 years ago.
