Screw it, I’m following the Knicks

By

I’ve decided to give up on the Raptors and follow the Knicks as my “favorite team”. This decision came last night after a lengthy and through-provoking discussion with my shrink who advised me to look out for my long-term happiness rather than get mired in the insecurities of the tumultuous near future.

By

So the third jersey was unveiled last night. The migration from purple to anything but purple is now officially complete, there isn’t even a shade of purple anywhere on the Raptors logo, mascot, jersey, shorts or crotch guard.

Atlantic Division predictions

By

Why not? There’s nothing going on anywhere so it’s time I write the ultimate filler post. Without further ado: Boston: The Celtics trinity are a year older but they’re still only 31, 32 and 33, one could even argue that they’re in their prime. They lost James Posey who was instrumental in their title run… Read more »

Should we worry about Jason Kapono’s defense?
