Enes Kanter you better be ready, Joakim Noah you better be ready.

Ready to move down a chair.

Summer days drifting away
To, uh oh, those summer nights

Well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!
Tell me more, tell me more, can he drive to the hole?

Tell me more, tell me more

Can he play pick n roll?

Uh-huh uh-huh uh-huh uh-huh



I watched the game off/on and Robinson was the most impressive Knicks today. I liked his defensive chops and o-board put-backs kept the Knicks in the game.

Not to repeat myself, but he might find life a little tougher if playing against someone remotely the same size who can contest him in the paint.

Knox got a good taste of NBA bodies today.

Yup

Those summer nights!

Bank, that's the part where you write like Chico Cartero  Wink

But the poem was very... lyric  Cheesy



Carlos I've been doing that schtick for 20 years, and don't remember if i got it from kid or he got it from me.

heh

the poem was just a a little twist on a golden oldie

there are so many summer love songs to play with

almost went with Lovin Spoonful's: "A younger Knick keeps rolling cross the floor" Grin

Well, on this forum heh belongs to Chico. It’s his most coherent expression.

I recognized you were using a golden oldie, very lyric.

Keep it up, it was fun   Grin


I'm with ya Carlos, with the world on the cusp of craziness, we need a few distractions to laugh at

Chip

there was no snark, only having a little fun with Kam who developed some serious wood for Knox.

Which is fine, there is nothing wrong with that, but its the fucking summer league, where 80% of the players will never see court time in November, so you really should put it in context.

Or don't.

I don't fucking care.

And I only try to amuse myself.

If others get a chuckle, cool, its on the house.

A younger Knick keeps rolling across the floor...

So it's taken 2 summer league games for us to have found the latest Holy Grail...sorry, I mean set of unicorns?

Our fans aren't thirsty or anything...

Remember the N8 Robinson...

MSG hyping them up as well...and Frank (who I did see make one nice move to the hoop).

That being said...OF COURSE I hope they all turn good, and while I'm excited, and I didn't watch any games, some highlights looked like they were against high school level defenses.

I was thinking this before yesterday's game p.s.

This is Knox's first summer league. I believe that summer of N8 he wasn't a rookie.

Kam got a bad case of summer love

He got Knoxed up

I'll be alone web surfing every night
watching you in Vegas putting up a fight
Bye-bye, so long, farewell
Bye-bye, so long farewell

Will I see you in November
See you when the summer's through?

Have a good time but remember
Don't take much from the Vegas Summer games
Will I see you in November
Or will you come up lame?

heh





Bullshit.

You sound like Kiid dissing Tatum.

Congrats on your spiritual snark evolution.  

I'm not dissing anyone. Nor drawing conclusions about Knox.

I'm just having a little bit of fun.

Chip, If you want to draw conclusions about 18 YO kids after 3 games against other kids most of whom will be in Europe, China, the G-League or bagging down at Wal-Mart, in a few weeks, you are certainly free to draw those conclusions. But when you draw those conclusions can you get your big box of crayons and draw then in green and red?

Thanks

I love how everyone including plenty who haven't watched more than highlights dismiss Knox as a summer breeze.

Watch the games.  Watch how Knox scores.  He creates on his own with a killer first step, gets to the line and makes his FTs, and he takes 7 threes a game with a soft fluid stroke.

Yes the stroke and the moves to get open are like Allan.  He's more Houston-Spre Hybrid.

He scores 25 with 8 rebs in his first summer league. Leads all other rooks in scoring.

He will play too well this season to come back for another summer league.  One and Done.  Like the best.

I'm just having a little fun Kam.

I'm not making any value judgement about any players , I just don't put much stock in Summer League play.

I'll probably watch the Knicks and Celts tomorrow.

I think we should understand that Red is perfectly comfortable with the possibility of a tainted and corrupted President as long as said President wears the right uniform.

Red's ok with treason as long as he gets his tax cuts.

Go Buckeyes!

Kavanaugh seems to believe that legal precedent does in fact allow for the questioning and the independent investigation of the President, even if the Presdient might be forced truthfully testify and possibly skip a round of golf or two.  

If Constitutionally sound, why would he deviate from the Constitution?
25  National / Bush Administration / Re: Bush Administration on: July 10, 2018, 06:05:01 PM
Perhaps SC-nominee Kavanaugh might reflect if a thorough investigation and questioning of the President to determine how tainted he is or has become might be better for the nation, rather than have a red cloud hover over his presidency and which keeps us all in darkness.

Trump doesn’t really give a fuck about Roe v. Wade beyond selling himself to hypocritical bible thumpers. Kavanaugh probably gave him the high sign for a favorable ruling in the Mueller investigation when challenges get to SCOTUS.
He is already on record as arguing the president cannot be charged with a crime or made subject to civil processes while in office. Think that is a coincidence?
A consistent position of Kavanaugh’s regardless of who has been in the White House.
Both untrue and irrelevant. He advocated for Starr interviewing Clinton:

http://www.newsweek.com/brett-kavanaugh-explicit-questions-trumps-scotus-nominee-wanted-bill-clinton-1015983

 And irrelevant to the idea that Trump selected him with an eye to how Kavanagh would rule on those issues.

I see Susan Collins has indicated Kavanagh told he considered Roe to be settled law. I look for, first, her support of Kavanagh and second, her feigned bitter disappointment when it turns out he doesn't.

They'll leave Roe in place in the heathen Blue States, but will ok laws which make it ok for fly-over state Uber drivers to refuse rides to healthcare clinics.

they'll keep on chipping away at other people's rights.

Fac

Bird's had a couple of good summer games and I'm pretty sure he's a RFA. I think the Celts would match any offer (he's probably gonna be cheap/cap friendly) and he may be the 15th man and insurance if/when Smart/Rozier or KI head elsewhere, But that bench is starting to look crowded.

I guess 6 1/2 years on an exhaustive investigation into an Arkansas real estate deal but findng only semen on a blue dress, was a transformative moment for the SC nominee and the possible distractions on a sitting President.

I do think he is probably a great dad and CYO hoops coach, but he's a fucking hypocrite with two sets of law books.

Sometimes you think of a plate of shrimp,  and some guy walks by with a plate of shrimp.

It's all part of a cosmic unconsciousness.



Bart IMO you gotta think bigger for a true sign of cosmic unconsciousness, maybe a tray of grilled lobster tails or a baby lamb chops or a slab of ribs served by a smoldering hot sultry waitress who...
