You're referring to this, I assume. Very nice, if he's right.

Here's more (click the image). He sure sounds incentivized by what he experienced on draft night.

The Knicks are reportedly going to buyout/waive Joakim Noah's contract. The deal is complicated, as usual, and I don't pretend to understand it (the eyes glass over after a while), but the Knicks are getting some cash consideration in exchange for waiving him and I guess allowing him to sign elsewhere.

The thing that boggles the mind is how much the Knicks still owe him before any deals are cut: $37.8 million! Now I suppose that will be somewhat less, but almost $38 million for a guy who is now 33 years old, continues to be injury-prone as was indicated before the contract was signed, and apparently also has an attitude problem (he was essentially exiled after some beef with Hornacek in January).

Would you have an attitude if you played as little, and as badly, as he did in his first two years with the Knicks, while making $17 to $18 million each of those years?

This situation alone indicates how stupidly this organization has been run in recent years. No guy, with a track record like his and at his age, should be handed a contract like this. That kind of money should go to superstars in the prime of their careers and in full health, not a reclamation project. And because Noah soaks up some of the available cap room or whatever, the Knicks miss out on getting one or more good players in free agency.

I sure as heck hope the Knicks have turned a corner with their new management team. We will see.

Pardon me. Those were the New York Knicks that I just watched on opening night, yes?

Final score: Knicks 126, Hawks 107

When I saw that the Hawks were going to start Alex Len and Vince Carter I knew that they are going into full on tank mode this season.

That guy you don't like, Hardaway Jr., scored 31 points. Some guy named Trier electrified the crowd with an emphatic dunk. Kanter and Burke played well and seven Knicks finished with double-digit points including two guys named Hezonja and Vonleh. Everybody played hard.

It was only one game against a bad team but for one night, it was fun. It had better be more fun because there was this little known fact in the papers this morning: Last night was the first time in 27 years that the Knicks failed to sell out their home opener.
