New York vs. Virginia

The difference between the New York Knicks and the Virginia Cavaliers can be summed up like this:  Virginia typically holds its opponents to just over 50 points per game.  Last night the Knicks let the Lakers drop 51 one on them.  In the third quarter!

Fifty-one, just for the record, was my laundry number in military school.  But that has nothing to do with this.

I suppose having a Lakers team score 51 on you in a single quarter would be okay -- okay might be the wrong word; understandable might be better -- if names like Kareem or Magic or Kobe were involved.  But the current Lakers are comprised of guys like Joe Shmo, John Doe and Willy Loman.

I mean, really.  Who are these guys?

The surge to the playoffs is now officially over.  Thank you for that 8-game streak, New York, but enough already.  I wonder if when they told Phil Jackson that he had the job they also told him that, in one of the richest, deepest drafts in recent memory, the Knicks don't have a first-round draft pick this year.
