Toad Enclosed

Here are two things written elsewhere, by me, that I firmly believe you will like:

For the Awl, the new Knicks and why they will matter.

At FanHouse, Chris Paul's demand and, as they say, "who's the man"?

Planning something big here soon, as well as some guest stuff. Stay furtive!

i'm a knicks fan, and ever since the lebron fiasco i've been tiding myself over with the reassurance that even if the knicks won't be a great team, they'll at least be an interesting one. and then the golden state deal happened, which to my delight included guys with FD potential stamped all over them. thanks for acknowledging this—it at least makes me feel like i'm not an insane person for being excited to watch ray felton for an entire season.

re: paul—forget dan gilbert or shinn. instead, imagine the assault Weezy would rage on CP3 for deserting him and NOLA.

There is a great in-comment debate going on at Knickerblogger about how Randolph will fulfill both D'Antoni's revivalist plans and the Garden crowd's need for Star blood (mission impossible). I believe he should play the most feared SF in the East this side of the King, become the Ron Artest that never was, and fashion his myth out of all those lost and injured threes that wore Knick red/blue over the years. We do not need a Chris Paul as much as he needs us, strange as that sounds. Paul wants hardware but he also wants to figure in the Greatest Debate. I like that Amar'e doesn't care, and can remind Knick fans what it's like to love a loser, and be okay with it.

Weezy would probably be alright with it. Ever read his sports articles at ESPN? He thinks every athlete is just awesome.

hmm, i don't know...nothing means more to him than his city, and he seems to think that other than him the athletic teams are basically the city's last breath of hope ("take away the football team, the basketball team, now all we got is me to represent new orleans"). paul's departure would be the figurative "taking away" of the team—the removal from basketball relevance, the departure of a superstar and a moneymaker. seems to be that nothing's more likely than that to incur Wayne's wrath.

@Dreebreez...I am not sure if I should be in mild shock by you comparing Anothony Randolph to Ron Artest or that you suggest that the Knicks would not benefit greatly by the addition of Chris Paul. Evidently, Mike D and the Three have dislodge the judgement center in your brain.

I do think the Knicks have become far more compelling with the GS trade and the addition of Felton.

@Shoals Wilson Chandler could have fetched Amare after he dropped 40 plus on the playoff bound Celts a few years ago. They should have sold high.
