Love this post by Seth Rosenthal on Posting and Toasting about the evolution of the current Knicks logo. Funny cause I was looking at sportslogos.net recently when the new jerseys came out and had that basketball logo on the back that I wasn’t familiar with (and that I like very much, it fits in nicely with the old school feel of the new jerseys) and was wishing I had a bit more info on their various graphic representations. So, thanks Seth.
In an interview with MSG’s Alan Hahn during a Knicks summer league game, the dearly departed Landry Fields, of all people, delivered the Dolan dagger. “Poison pill?” Fields said of his buddy’s Year 3 salary. “This is a Tic Tac for James Dolan.”
Landry may not have had the best season last year but I reckon he still has potential if he gets the right system to play in. At any rate he always seemed like one of the guys that would be best to go have a beer with. And I love this quote, great how the little barbs can come out now that he is free from the MSG media yoke.
Sweet! Pocket aces! Come on, JD, don’t mess this up. … Why is this asshole dealer looking at me like that and why is that dude in the cowboy hat smiling? Oh man, I think he knows. … Nah, he doesn’t know, he’s so stupid with his stupid hat and his stupid accent. Shit. He does know. Maybe I should call Isiah? Nah, cause if they see me calling Isiah, they’ll all laugh. Play it cool, Jimmy. What would be the only thing they’d never expect from you? What would Isiah do? WWID? Fold, Jimmy, fold!
DOLAN: I fold.
DEALER: Sir, it’s not your turn to act.
DOLAN: Don’t tell me what to do.
MAN IN HAT: Folded aces again, huh?
DOLAN: It was the right move, dickface.
Thanks Jay Caspian Kang, this article contains the righteous indignation that I needed this morning.
