Breaking news at this hour: Your New York Knicks signed C Kelvin Cato away from the Detroit Pistons. Also noteworthy is that four hometown heroes, Milone Clark, Elton "Not Brand" Brown, Paul Miller, and Nikoloz Skeetskeetskeet were cut from the team. Oh well.
Henry Abbott over at True Hoop makes the good point that various veteran free agent centers, including Cato, are readily available because teams are staying small and quick. Somewhere, Felton Spencer sheds a tear.Is it just me or does Felton Spencer look a lot like Ron Jeremy?
A few more notes on last night's game:
- Though it lapses at times, I'm pretty impressed with the Knicks' ball movement
- I liked when they showed Isiah sitting on the floor next to the bench, talking to Eddy Curry. Brown never woulda done that.
- Andre Iguodala is starting to feel like a star. For me, star players always stand out on the court. You always know where they are and expect something when the ball's in their hands. Iggy's beginning to give me that vibe.
- I'm liking 22 turnovers better than 32 turnovers. Especially because a handful of those 22 came from the spastic stylings of those cats who got cut today.
That should be it for today, unless a crushed and reeling Paul Miller comes out of the closet or something. Peace.
EDIT: No, Paul Miller didn't come out yet. Just wanted to point out this Knicks bit from Yay Sports. The Cavalier also wonders if Steph might be hurtin from those shoes.
Also peep this article about John Starks from Hoops Addict. I liked John Starks back in the day, but I'm more concerned with the inarticulate ramblings he currently does on MSG sometimes. Also, I have this vague mental image of him flipping off the entire crowd at center court during a game. Did this happen? Anyone?
