The Knicks have the NBA’s leading scorer in Carmelo Anthony, but after that there are questions about who’s going to put the ball in the basket until their second- and third-leading scorers get back.
This is the way the Knicks’ season has to start. It’s so disappointing, but also so typical at the same time. Dolan would have it no other way.
With NFL Week 1 and the Yankees garnering the majority of the attention on this Monday morning, Craig was sure to carve out a few minutes to discuss the suspension with Boomer, who is still curious about the use of a ‘roach clip’…
