The sound of one hand clapping is over-rated.Even Peace is sounding better.Can this be done?Edjumacated minds are wondering about the Knicks being legit in the second season.

The Yankees today announced they will donate $500,000 to the American Red Cross to support the relief efforts in the Tri-State area associated with Hurricane Sandy.
Not to bite the hand, but that's a little light for a borough in trouble that bleeds pinstripes.Cheapskates.

The NBA and Players Association announced a $1 million donation to Hurricane Sandy’s relief organizations.

@Peaceman Advo on the Metrocard...not bad.
As for the rest, it's unfortunately a cruel world.I'm hoping, But this might work better. Now I lay me down to...

@Peaceman 27 million dollars says you're wrong.
Big talk after two days of practice.The Rockets have already won, see below.They have a team that is going nowhere in the standings, as usual, but the team is fast breaking to the bank.Look for McHale to go before Lin, Lin makes them more money.As for Machado, how much is he signed for? The entire NBA passed on him.I wish him the best but he is still all pass no J.Still good luck to him.He may be the next poor man's JJ Barea, if he's lucky.
"Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin and his alma mater, Harvard University, are in talks to create a co-licensed merchandise line, two people with direct knowledge of the negotiations said.
The line would be created with Nike Inc., which has Lin as an endorser and which outfits the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based university’s football and basketball teams, said the people, who were granted anonymity because the contracts aren’t signed.
A Lin-related line would be an economic and brand-building boon to Harvard where, according to the school’s 2010-11 Fact Book, almost 18 percent of the 6,657 undergraduates are of Asian descent, said Paul Swangard, managing director of the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center at the University of Oregon.
“Jeremy Lin provides an incredible platform for Harvard in China,” Swangard said in an e-mail. “To millions of Chinese children, the NBA and Harvard are separately ‘aspirational brands’ and Lin is uniquely positioned to align their messages. I predict Lin will become one of the most effective brand- building tools for Harvard in China.”
Harvard ranks first among Ivy League schools in merchandise sales, according to online retailer Fanatics.com. Fifteen percent of sales come from outside the U.S., according to Fanatics, which didn’t provide specifics.
Adding Lin already has paid off for the Rockets, who last month signed a three-year marketing agreement with East West Bank, which has branches throughout the U.S. and China.
Lin became a marketing force last season in Asia, where broadcasters tried to add more Knicks games to their schedules. Coca-Cola Co. added advertisements in Chinese to its courtside signs at Madison Square Garden, seeking to capitalize on Asian viewers.
(Well, don't have to worry about that money any more!}
Lin had the league’s second-best-selling jersey from April 2011 through April of this year, trailing only 2011 Most Valuable Player Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, according to the NBA.
We can always market Kidd, Thomas, Camby, Rasheed, and JR jerseys in the AARP magazines to make up the difference.Maybe we can buy Grunge a monthly Metrocard.
Here's some motivation for our team.Post ESPN's opinion of our team on the training camp wall.

@Steady Most cartoons have the same characters, same scripts, same outcome.
Tha,,,tha...that's all folks.
Actually, hope you're right and I'm wrong.We'll see.
@Steady Did Wiley ever catch any Road Runner?Maybe we should put some Acme Safe advo on our Unis?
@Tman Berman, Post. "Let's get clos...a, ...closer than close...
"The connection is clear. The Wallace and assistant general manager Allan Houston share the same agent, Bill Strickland."
41 ejections from a defensive specialist.Yeah baby, Let's get closer...
"According to Ric Bucher of ESPN.com, Rasheed Wallace has been working out with Marcus Camby and Kurt Thomas at the Knicks practice facility, adding that the team is "considering" him. Wallace has not played in an NBA game since June 2010 and officially announced his retirement in August of that year."
Well we already got the "old", the "blind or crippled" can't be far off.Kind of nice that Grunge and braintrust of "advi-sores" have such a soft spot for NBA senior citizens.Do they get senior's discounts on their bench seats?LGSK, Let's Go Slowly Knicks, What's Your Hurry Sonny?
Marbs not a Studly/Melo fan, but likes them for a quickie playoff appearance.
Read it and weep gents.

Knicks shopping at Daffy's to fill that last spot.Amundson latest to be offered going out of business salary spot.Somebody who can't make more in Urea-ope or Made in China league will take it.

These guys are refreshing to say the least.
Dr. J once said, "I have the best job in the whole world. If they didn't pay me I would be doing it for free."
Great attitude meet great attitude.How many people do what they love for a living, AND APPRECIATE IT?Gotta love these guys.
“Every once a while, I’ll take a look back and just be like, ‘I can’t believe this is happening,’ ” Lin said. “I was just appreciating the fact that I get to wake up and play basketball for a living. And even the whole NBA thing ... [to] be able to play basketball for your job, like those are things I remind myself of every day.” Read more: http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/knicks/lin_needs_bed_check_5fB4MYmfBylaSoqbatZgEK#ixzz26wufDqdO
"Los Angeles Clippers free agent forward Kenyon Martin is once again being linked to the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics, but according to MSG’s Alan Hahn, the snag in Martin joining any team is that the 34-year-old refuses to sign for the veterans minimum:
Chris Andersen, Martin’s teammate with the Denver Nuggets, is reportedly also linked to the Knicks, with Hahn saying the “Birdman” has been “pushing the idea, [b]ut the sentiment isn’t mutual.” Ditto for Tracy McGrady, who tried out with the Knicks but according to Hahn, “there doesn’t appear to be great interest there.”
Because of their salary cap, the Knicks would only be able to afford a player at the veterans minimum with their current roster."
Let's blame JLinn and his greed for the Knicks being broke, not the mo-mo's who gave out the money.
Why would a guy who "used" NY for just money have such a strange uni for his screen saver?The heart wants what it wants.
Another piece of history passed on to me.Now to you.Look listen and learn what NYC ballas used to be like before the world was handed to them on an AAU shytestick.

Zeke says he doesn't want Knick position...right now.He must read Shakespeare, Julius, the Emperor not the Doc, used the same rhetoric outside the walls of Rome where his army was camped.When offered the crown he demurred and said only if it is the people's will.Then he marched in and took the empire over.Recognize a set up when you see one.That's today's history lesson, compliments of Dolanite.

@jtshoopsblog I say we chip in for a moving truck for Peace.His two favorite players JLinn and Iona Machado are signed for Houston.Move on and embrace the pain.linngk
@Peaceman Alzheimer's can fool you like that, try more blueberries in your wheatena.
@Steady Never left, rarely right.Keeps talking about how much he loves Detroit, Dumars, but his bud never offered him even a scout's j-o-b.IN fact no one in the ENTIRE NBA offered him anything.Wonder why?But Dolan the Scrub who has never had a winner (When he got close his stars, Latrell and Camby told him off to his face and got traded) needs IT for his sage advice on running a team, certainly not a league.But you're right, everybody deserves a second, third, maybe fourth chance.It's that same theory that keeps the streets of NYC so safe.IT's Dolanite's team so wtf.We're just fleas on the MSG dog's ass anyway.If IT is on board you really think Grunge will be running the show?BK brass are probably on their knees with the O'Neil firing and IT coming singing, "Oh,what a friend we have in...Jimmy!"
