I might not be around the computer later so I decided to go Early Mornin' Tony on you and get the Game Thread up right now. The Knicks play the second game of a back-to-back tonight (or as the Pounding the Rock guys would call it, a SEGABABA), heading to Philadelphia to take on the Sixers. I mentioned last night that this is a bit of a trap game. The Sixers are plainly shitty since the Iverson trade, but can surprise you with guys like Iguodala, Miller, and Korver (as in the last meeting).
On the other end, the Sixers have ab-so-lutely no one to match up with the the Artist Formerly Known as Mittens. (Ooh! I think I'm gonna start calling Eddy that! Maybe I'll even come up with a cool symbol to take the place of his name!). Samuel Dalembert can block some shots but reminds me of one of those huge inflatable men with the wiggly arms that you sometimes see at car dealerships. He's skinny. Steven Hunter and Shavlik "Gayness" Randolph don't provide much help. It's Eddy's time to stay out of foul trouble and beast all over these Sixer "big men".
By the way, you realize that if Larry Brown were still coach he'd probably be starting Malik Rose tonight, just because they're playing in Philly? What a fool. 24 wins, Larry, 24.
This here is a game thread so post any comments about the game, Larry Brown, grasshoppers, "Wild and Crazy Kids", sunblock, and swiss cheese as the day goes on. I'll probably be missing this one again, so your filling me in on the nuances of the game would be much appreciated. Go Knicks. Peace.
