What the heck did we ever do to you, basketball gods?

Jeez.

I'm also concerned about Melo's knee, mainly because it seems Amar'e and Melo are rarely healthy at the same time- with Amar'e possibly returning next game, the basketball gods will demand a sacrifice!

Well, who knows what line up we'll be seeing on january 1st. Amar'e, Melo and Sheed are listed as possible, but there's still a lot of uncertainty as to whether it's actually going to happen. I'm also a bit sceptical as to whether JR and Kidd will be able to resist partying the night before.

Which reminds me, remember when Jerome James turned up to practice hung over on new years day, and ended up throwing up? Good times...

I am worried that he re-injurred it from the Howard foul. A knee swelling up and barely being able to move sounds more serious then day to day.
Phil Jackson on whether Melo has to change way he plays: I think we have to change some of the people around Carmelo

Amare is on day 80 of day to day. Melo still has 73 days to go

It's called injuries. And they do happen in sports. Any person who's ever not only enjoyed sports, but also played sports not only knows but also understands that injuries do happen in sports. In closing; no need to "mock" them.

Carry on.

not mocking them, mocking the team

From http://knickerblogger.net/knicks-99-suns-97/

One the one hand, it’s possible that the team is completely incapable of making a correct diagnosis. Roger Hinds and his team of wacky, meatball surgeons haven’t inspired much confidence in their skillz lo these many years. That’s problematic enough. But, honestly, I don’t think that’s the case. For some reason, the entire Knicks hierarchy is so insanely paranoid that they insist on hoarding information as if the results of an x-ray were a tightly guarded, heavily redacted state secret. It’s insulting. There’s no need to treat the fans and/or the media like the enemy. And it’s so easy to see through the bull****. There’s NO WAY that they didn’t perform an MRI on Carmelo. Of course they know the severity of his “hyperextended knee”. They’d be contractually liable/subject to a serious lawsuit if they didn’t perform some form of test beyond a Dr. Feelgood-type prod and poke. So when Woodson casually mentions pregame that he’s “worried” about the knee, naturally I assume the worst. I half expect that we’ll wake up tomorrow and find out that Melo’s actually deceased (Though if he did die, the Knicks would still list him as “day to day with an acute myocardial infarction resulting in death”). Just like they Knew Felt had a fractured finger all day yet insisted on spewing this crapola about a sprain for 24 hours. Why? I have no idea. But whatever the reason, it sucks massively inflamed donkey testes to realize that you’ve been had, you’ve been took and you’ve been bamboozled (again). I don’t know about you, but there are very few things in life that make me grind my teeth down to the nubbin in a dyspeptic, stomach-churning rage more than being bald-facedly lied to, where the prevaricator either assumes I am/you are a credulous imbecile who can barely read above 8th grade level and lists, “likes to color” as a hobby or honestly doesn’t give eight ****s whether I/you believe it or not. Fuck that noise. And **** you, James Dolan, for generally treating one of the most loyal fan bases in any sport like a bunch of mentally challenged, shiny-from-all-the-excess-drool-dribbling-down-the-front-of-his/her-chin numbskulls or some unknown gelatinous particle that you needed a shrimp fork with particularly sharp tines to dislodge from the grooves in the heel of his boot.
The reason is always just: James Dolan is a baby The decision was stupid, rash, poorly-timed, stupid, tone-deaf, stupid ... in other words, vintage Dolan.

Pat Ewing was last seen at the garden smiling, while secretly putting the injury hex back on the franchise for trading him to Seattle instead of retiring a knick.

JAMES DOLAN on Isiah : He's a good friend of mine and of the organization and I will continue to solicit his views. He will always have strong ties to me and the team.

No problem. It really helps capture some of the feeling of being a Knicks fan.

The reason is always just: James Dolan is a baby The decision was stupid, rash, poorly-timed, stupid, tone-deaf, stupid ... in other words, vintage Dolan.

Read Alan Hahn's book, playa2. Ewing forced the trade. "It was time to go" The only person who put a hex on the Knicks was Vin Baker.

And please, no government-sponsored conspiracy vids about how extremist groups actually inujected cherry cough syrup into Ewing's ice bags, thereby prematurely ending his lateral movement.
