I haven't said that much about either of these issues because, frankly, I don't have that strong of an opinion on either one. (I don't mean to equate them, by the way. They're both recent.) I think Thomas' statements more reflect the state of the Dunk Contest than they do his personality. As far as Amaechi goes, I hope he's happy, and I hope we don't have to hear so much about things like this in the future. For some really interesting takes on that business, I highly reccomend checking out posts at SLAM, Clipper Blog, and Free Darko.
Some more Knicks-related things (although John Amaechi was part of the Clarence Weatherspoon deal and Tyrus Thomas was selected with the Knicks' draft pick. It all comes back to NY.):
- Positivity (and a much better picture of Lee's black eye) over at Father Knickerbocker.
- Eddy Curry wants out if Isiah Thomas ever gets fired. (Mittens got CLAWS, yo!)
- Nate Robinson is immature, or something. Isn't it odd that the smallest guy around (supposedly) acts like a little kid? This is disappointing to hear, because I love Nate's game and I really thought he was proving himself earlier this year. He'll come around.
That's all for today. Enjoy tonight's games and I'll be back tomorrow. Jazz on Saturday. Peace.
EDIT: Now that I look at it, I might've worded that bit about Amaechi badly. I didn't mean to say that I don't want more NBA guys to come out of the closet. I merely meant that I hope it's not such a controversial occurrence.
