So the media got to interrogate the various members of the Knicks organization on Monday, from general manager Glen Grunwald to head coach Mike Woodson to new Spanish point guard Pablo Prigioni. Here were some of the topics and my take.
Mike Woodson declined to comment about Jeremy Lin on Knicks’ media day.
Boomer & Craig were happy to welcome Mario Chalmers into the Allstate Studio, despite the fact that he is a member of the World Champions Miami Heat.
Many fans were upset when the Knicks decided not to match Houston’s offer to Jeremy Lin. But for 5-year-old Naim, it was pure heartbreak.
Carmelo Anthony wouldn’t take the blame for Jeremy Lin leaving the Knicks, but he did acknowledge that he’ll always take the brunt of criticism when things go wrong.
The NBA certainly knows how to schedule drama.
Now that he’s settled in as a Houston Rocket, former Knick Jeremy Lin is taking some time to reflect on what ensued in the past year of his life.
Talk about Lin-gering over a decision.
After a weekend where both the Yankees & Mets were swept, Adam Scott bogeyed away the British Open and Joe Paterno’s statue was rightfully taken down, Boomer and Craig had plenty to talk about this Monday morning.
The Knicks’ offseason has been nearly as crazy as their season. But with the final pieces in place, it’s finally time to take a look at their roster and figure out exactly how good they are.
Some have panned the Knicks’ decision not to match Houston’s big-money offer sheet for Jeremy Lin. But Raymond Felton, back in NY, doesn’t seem to think fans at MSG will miss Linsanity.
“I’m so thankful to New York and the Knicks for this past year, and the way that the fans rooted for us,” Lin said. “I’m thankful for what they did for me.”
There’s plenty of blame to go around when figuring out who to point the finger at for the loss of Jeremy Lin. It should be no surprise that it all starts at the top.
Jeremy Lin is starting over in Houston. He will have to explain why he said he would have rather stayed in New York.
Kenny Anderson played for 14 seasons in the NBA after making a name for himself on the streets of NYC and is a dear friend of the show.
