Yesterday had its fair share of fantastic NBA action, but the spotlight belongs only to the day’s big market matchups between the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers (meh, Lakers won, but I expected more) and especially the slugfest between the New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics. With both teams struggling around the .500 mark, the Celtics received an absurd performance from trade-bait Rajon Rondo (18 pts, 17 reb, 20 ast) en route to a 115-111 overtime win.
And while I could go in a few different directions from here, like:
– Will the Celtics actually trade Rondo?
– Are the Knicks getting desperate enough to entertain trading Carmelo Anthony for Dwight Howard?
– The Celtics should totally be able to trade Ray Allen to the Clippers and rip them off, right?
– Seriously, Knicks, trade Carmelo for Dwight.
I just can’t get past that Knicks fan above. Sunglasses indoors… backwards tilted cap… jersey with no undershirt… mad tats… neatly-trimmed facial hair… there should be a word for that.
Sadly, this Knicks fan didn’t stick around long enough for anyone to talk to him, but I did get a shot of him driving away…
