Knicks treat the Hornets like a small child

The version of the Knicks that beat Miami came out swinging tonight. The team has driven us crazy lately with their up and down moments and tonight was an up night. The Knicks, minus Billups, looked in control all game. They looked cool and calm like Brad Pitt in Fight Club.

  • T.Douglas  looked awesome tonight. 24 points, 10-13 from the field. I am shocked that our combo of TD and Carter was so good.
  • Carmelo and Amare looked awesome tonight and Shawne Williams is our best bench player when he doesn’t start
  • I am not saying Chris Paul is unhappy in New Orleans but if you are a real estate broker in the New Orleans area you may want to pass him your card.
  • Roger Mason shot 2-2 which quadrupled his season’s FG%. I am fairly certain Mason deserves a cake from Carvel for that.

Kelenna Azubuike gets bought out

The Knicks have waived Azubuike. This has likely been done to free up a roster spot for Jared Jeffries. I guess that makes sense since Roger Mason’s spot on the bench has been invaluable this season. Does Roger Mason have naked pictures of Walsh procreating with a donkey? How do you shoot 6% on the year and avoid getting cut? What was the thinking, let’s cut the guy who has been injured all year that has actual potential and is actually close to coming back and keep the guy who would need the entire starting five to die in a plane accident before he would get Bill Walker type minutes. And, Turiaf is now all that remains from the David Lee trade.

Episode 32: It was the Glasses

Jay and Marc recap the last two games vs. the Atlanta Hawks and the Miami Heat and talk about what to expect in the Detroit Pistons game.  We try to figure out who is going to play if Chandler, Stoudemire and Williams are all out, what happens in practice, if Mozgov is ready to get some minutes again, and if Roger Mason is going to hit a shot to double his shooting percentage.  We go over some ridiculous Miami Heat articles and top it all off with an interview with Stan from KnicksKnotes.com  Download Episode 32
