There's not much I can say that isn't said in that screen grab (provided by The Basketball Jones). By the end of the third quarter, the Celtics' Big Three were already resting contentedly on the bench. The Knicks actually had to put together a rally to lose by less than 50 points. Today's Daily Dime is delightfully all over the Knicks' 104-59 Boston Massacre.
This seemed more like a game between the Harlem Globetrotters and the Washington Generals than an NBA contest. All that was missing was Garnett throwing a pail of confetti on [Isiah] Thomas, Paul Pierce teasing the Knicks' Stephon Marbury with a ball on an elastic cord and Ray Allen doing dribbling tricks at center court.
The Knicks play at home against the Bucks tonight, and holy hell I wish I had tickets. Friday night, thousands of pissed-off drunk mooks dressed like Turtle from Entourage… this could be the straw that breaks Isiah's back. Or not. Considering that Isiah was the centerpiece of a multi-million-dollar sexual harassment suit and is the one who assembled the comically overpaid, grossly underachieving team with mismatched parts, I'm pretty sure he has some kind of immunity from firing.
He could walk to the middle of the court, drop trou, take a dump in front of everyone, and not get fired. I think I'd like to see that, actually. I mean see him literally do it. It's already been done figuratively.
