By the time of the Knick fan protest, NYK could have Phil Jackson in place as team president & be on a 6-gm win streak. Would be odd timing.
Reports that I've already ordered my sandwich are erroneous.
Wait a second: This sandwich doesn't have any bread!
I skipped breakfast, though. Maybe I should do brunch? No, wait... Let me think about it.
The thing is, I'm not sure if I feel like I sandwich. Or maybe I want a different sandwich. I'm so confused.
I am super super super super super close to getting this sandwich ... but I might not eat it until next week.
Today's NY Times features 2 outstanding stories on Stuart Scott and daughter of Babe Ruth.
I am super super super super close to getting some lunch.
I have 1 paramount thought re Knicks' groping 4 executive leadership this century: Imagine if Checketts had given Riley the power he wanted!
Andrea Bargnani seemed to enjoy telling media that he didn't know when he would play much more than he enjoys playing.
Scoreboard watchers - Atlanta wins, so Knicks still 3 1/2 back. Also, go watch something else.
Andrea Bargnani says he still has soreness in his elbow and has no timetable for his return. No guarantees that he'll be back this year.
J.R.: If Phil's coming, it's "great. If he isn’t, then that’s fine too. He’s won 12 championships. Any wisdom that he has will benefit us."
76ers coach Brett Brown: Hardaway is a good player. Melo is Melo. You look around the gym & have to pick your poison. A lot of firepower."
Pierce calls it "a huge game."
Carmelo says team had to adjust quickly to the fact that Chandler wasn't there -- particularly on pick-and-roll
Melo, on the difference between first half and second half: "We just had to contain them off the dribble."
Shannon Brown, when asked what set Phil Jackson apart as a coach: "Well, when I got there, he had 9 championships." Lol
J,R. Smith on following the Phil Jackson saga: "I've been watching the Golf Channel."
JR Smith said he hasn't been paying attention to Phil Jackson rumors. "I've been watching the Golf Channel," JR said.
JR, by the way, is basically a scratch golfer. True story.
JR Smith on Phil speculation: "I've been watching the Golf Channel."
Mike Woodson is in an effervescent mood.
Woodson: "We dug ourselves a deep hole, man. ... I'm happy as hell" with how the team's played lately.
Woodson, on whether team finally believes the playoffs are a real possibility: "I'd like to think so."
Carter-Williams finished with a 23-13-10 triple double since Philly scored on the final play. Hardaway finishes with 28 points.
So, Nets win tonight - did they get Phil Jackson?
Have to go back to April 17, 2012, against the Celtics, to find last time Knicks had four different players score 20 pts each, per Stats LLC
Love how well Amar'e is playing, but should he still be in the game right now?
The Sixers looked bad when they were tied with the Knicks. Down 17 they really look like a team that has lost 16 straight.
Also noteworthy: Four different Knicks have 20 points each tonight.
Hardaway has 20 points on seven shot attempts tonight.
Mike &Clyde talked about things Hardaway Jr has to fix on def. When I ask about offense or pts-Tim always brings up his need to improve D.
Shannon Brown: defensive stopper? Unclear what's going on there.
Kinda befuddled at how Woodson keeps putting Shannon Brown in for the final defensive possession. He's not that good on defense.
The Knicks are getting closer to an Eastern Conference playoff berth, but they are also reminding us all that they are 24-40.
This is not good basketball.
Wow. Toronto takes a timeout after the Nets take a 73-60 lead.
A current NBA coach says that Steve Kerr wants to coach and that "he'll be really good. He's smart and he's a good leader."
Knicks shoot 56% overall and 47% from three in the first half, yet go to the break tied with a team that's lost 16 straight games. Alright.
Melo took a really deep heat check there, perhaps to get the 2-for-1.
If - that's if - Phil Jackson runs the Knicks don't rule out the team's next coach being...Steve Kerr.
Knicks’ effort level is substandard, but they are playing the 76ers so they’re getting away with it. Physical and mental intensity lacking.
Carmelo Anthony with four first-half assists to go with 11 points and 5 boards. Having a solid all-around game thus far.
Hardaway is incredibly fluid on offense, man. The kind of ability on that end of the floor that you can't teach.
The Sixers shot just 36% (20-of-55) when the Knicks managed to contest a shot. They shot 67% (22-of-33) when they were left wide open.
Amare has given the Knicks some big games lately, but tonight seems like the minutes have caught up. Low motor. And yes, they miss Tyson.
Decided to pull up the box score from the last time the Knicks lost to Philly (also a game Chandler didn't play in). Pretty telling stats...
Thaddeus Young was just seen talking to Carmelo Anthony. Wonder if he told him to come play for Philadelphia....
Knicks playing terribly early, but JR Smith is on fire. Has been for the past five games or so.
Defense is so flat. Knicks are not engaged enough at all here. Desperate for energy boost.
Now Knicks down 9 to the Sixers. Phil just asked to take over the ownership suite - and will slump down in Dolan's seat as part of deal
Knicks are down nine in the first quarter to a team that has lost 16 straight.
With no Tyson, Knicks don’t have a rebounder on the floor. Amare so far seems flat-footed. He should dominate that matchup with Sims.
Sixers up 4-0 on Knicks - WHERE IS PHIL????
If Phil emerges, that means eight more weeks of winter.
Checking Celebrity Row for Phil... Will update.
Phil Jackson does not appear to be in attendance at MSG.
I don't think I've ever heard anything more universally skeptical from media and more beloved by fans than Dolan/Phil potential pairing.
