New York Knicks forward Quincy Acy has been suspended one game without pay by the NBA for his flagrant foul against John Wall in a Christmas game.
“The fans are dying, we’re dying. We’re out there, we’re not producing. We didn’t expect, I didn’t expect, to be sitting at 5-26. So as much as I feel for the fans, I feel for us going through it, too.”
John Wall had 24 points and 11 assists, eluding the Knicks all day until getting knocked to the floor by a flagrant foul that sparked an altercation, and the Washington Wizards beat New York 102-91 on Thursday.
“I plan on living here for the rest of my life,” the 37-year-old point guard and Brooklyn native said in an interview in the lobby of his plush apartment building in the heart of Beijing.

We’ve heard all kinds of theories as to why the Knicks are a franchise-worst 5-25. But maybe, just maybe, it’s all much simpler than that. Maybe the ‘Bockers just aren’t very talented.
This year hasn’t been particularly kind to sports franchises in the Tri-State area. Every team has something (in certain cases, multiple things) they’d like from Santa.
Samuel Dalembert told the New York Post that “if I really wanted to hit him, he wouldn’t be playing right now.”
Sir Charles, the Knicks’ biggest critic, has a tip for the team’s president: step away from the keyboard.
“Ultimately that has to be the player’s decision, in terms of what he feels like is best for him and his career. Also, what’s best for the team,” head coach Derek Fisher said.
For Craigie, Phil Jackson’s tinkering with social media was the final straw…
