Ive already had a couple Knick fans tweet me that theyd like Hibbert at right price. But he'd have to back out of a $15M payday first, tho.
The NBA is anti-crust. Investigation to follow. http://t.co/JDPzuqeL5A
Whatever. I think Westbrook is the most exciting, unpredictable player the NBA has. Which is nuts, considering that Steph Curry exists.
Thank God for today
Didn't notice til now, but Westbrook managed to lead NBA in shot attempts despite missing 15 gms. One more FGA than Harden, who played in 81
So even the Pacers plan to go small now... *looks over in Woodson's direction*
Pacers are pretty much saying theyll be fine with or without Hibbert going forward. Yikes.
Just tracked down a full YouTube video of MJ's first home game back in Chicago after retirement. Was against Penny and Shaq. *bookmarks*
First day after Knicks' season ends, and Ive been able to catch up on soooo many good reads on the Web today. So much good writing out there
When you get real tired of people talkin smack on Twitter http://t.co/mBU1UFfui4
Delusional Knick fan tweet January 2016: "you can't judge Phil on this season. This is Year One with this group. Next year he gets judged."
So Carmelo and Phil get a combined $37 million mulligan for this season? Man, life is good.
So if Carmelo second guessed his decision this finally puts to bed the delusional Knicks fan refrain "the plan all along was to blow it up."
Odds that is the last time Carmelo questions his decision to re-sign with the Knicks?
Carmelo Anthony today: "You sit down at night and you're thinking, 'Did I really make the right decision?' and just things like that,"
Then again, lemme not poke fun. I cover a team whose coach earlier this year suggested it wasn't vital to cover opposing 3-pt shooters.
Byron: "I still don't think 3-pointers help win you a title." He says this as 12 of the 16 playoff tms shot an above-avg number of threes.
I legitimately feel like Byron Scott could walk into a comedy club, discuss his basketball philosophy, and have the entire audience rollin.
