Good Riddance Phil Jackson!

You ever get that feeling of heightened elation that you don’t know what to do with yourself? That’s how I feel upon hearing the news that Phil Jackson had been fired by my beloved New York Knicks (and no, I’m not buying that “mutual” parting of ways BS).  It’s the kind of elation that is…

Lonzo Ball the Best in the NBA Draft

Look, I know that there are a lot of folks out there who have mental fatigue on this brother — especially his loudmouth daddy.   A lot of fans cannot wait for him to fail.  Hell, a lot of current NBA players not only want him to fail, they want to embarrass the hell out…

How to Fix the Knicks

My beloved New York Knicks is a hot mess, and that’s being TOO kind. Let’s forget the James Dolan-Charles Oakley fiasco for a minute.  My Knicks have been stinking for a long time.
