Maybe the sky isn’t falling

Posting and Toasting (bootum) — Could things actually be looking up, rather than down? The Brooklyn Nets , who don’t have enough fans to fill the Barclays , just landed Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant over the New York Knicks . How did this happen? Quite simply, the Nets just won 42 games and made the playoffs. The Knicks won 17 games, good for the worst record in the league. Is the sky falling? Did the Knicks...

Thoughts on escaping the Kevin Durant fever dream

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — KD ain’t walking through that door. Good! Check out this nine-second clip from a late-season Knicks/Magic game. What stands out? Hopefully you didn’t overthink it. Emmanuel Mudiay, a career 32% shooter from deep, hoists a momentum-less pull-up three with 14 seconds left on the shot clock. D.J. Augustin offers a passable contest, but he’s not selling out to bother the shot, much less...

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — As if that’s the only thing it hinged on NBA free agency has been open for no time whatsoever and the entire league has completely fractured.
