Eh, the Magic suck.

I really hope they didn't peak in November... again.

Jason Richardson was f**king unconscious last night.

So were the refs, but I digress

Edit: And if I hear the word "posterize" or any derivitave of poster in an NBA highlight again I might stab somebody. Cringe-worthy.

David Stern implements one of pickup sports' most reliable officiating decisions: the do-over.

Heat at Hawks, Shaq commits a foul with 51.9 seconds left and Hawks up 1. Hawks' official scorer has it recorded as Shaq's sixth foul when it's really only his fifth (due to a previous foul on Udonis Haslem being mistakenly assigned to Shaq). Heat complain, Hawks fail to correct the error, Hawks win, Heat file protest, final 51.9 seconds of game to be replayed sometime in March.

See that's what I'm talking about. It's Steve Nash. Throwing down on Steve Nash isn't really something to get all hyped over.

So ESPN this morning is reporting that Isiah is losing Dolan's support. I can't imagine why. Question is, could a firing be imminent? Knicks fans will throw a parade, can you picture a full MSG singing "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead"? That would be pretty funny...

All I keep reading is how Isaiah Thomas wants to fix the Knicks. Of course he wants to fix them! But...wasn't he sort of the one who messed them up in the first place?

Let's be fair...the Knicks were already messed up when Isiah took over. Scott Layden started the job. Isiah just made it worse.

The single biggest mistake of both Layden and Thomas is the refusal to let contracts run out.

They should have let Ewing's contract run out instead of trading for over-the-hill Glen Rice, Luc Longly, Travis Knight, and garbage.

They should have let Antonio Davis's contract run out instead of trading for Jalen Rose.

They should have let Penny Hardaway's contract run out instead of trading for Francis.

None of these trades accomplished anything other than throwing away golden opportunites to get out of the seventh circle of cap hell that they've been in.

If they had let Ewing's contract run out, much of the trouble could have been avoided at the beginning.

If AD and PH's contracts had been allowed to run out, huge progress would have been in getting out of cap hell.

Anyway...the point is, the Knicks were already messed up when Isiah took over. And he made it worse. Much worse.

it all started with poor poor slvako vranes

the last legitimate rays of light knick fans have had was the two week period in the pre-season when antonio mcdyess looked fantastic (before reinjuring his knee in the 4th quarter of a game he never should have been in), and about a two week period immediately after trading for marbury where ya had marbury penetrating with van horn and houston knocking down jumpers on either wing. then houston got hurt, and isiah traded van horn for 2 cents on the dime, and it's been darkness ever since.

and not that i'll ever defend scott layden... he sucked, too. but in his first 2 1/2 years (from the time he became GM to the time van gundy resigned) the knicks were 108-75.

as bad as the layden era was, the thomas era stands alone...
Layden - 175-181 49%
Thomas - 127-208 38%


but, of course, as i've said all along... there's one common factor involved in both dreadful eras of knick basketball. the owner.

i see the bulls voted to bench joakim noah. i wonder if it was based upon how terrible he is, or some other reason.
