Norm MacDonald, Internet Sensation

(via SplitSider)

Norm MacDonald was on Letterman last night, and big surprise - he was great! Really hope the Sports Show with Norm MacDonald lives up to my probably way too high expectations and doesn't get canceled like the other Comedy Central shows ie Stella/Michael and Michael Have Issues that I had ridiculously high expecations for.

2 Wins? That's a Win Streak, Right?

Oh man, when Carmelo Anthony is on, he's on. 39 fpr Melo, 33 for White Socks/Black Shoes Billups, and 23 for STAT, and it's a "win streak" for the Knicks against the Nets in the Nets "Super Bowl."And SHELDEN WILLIAMS had a 6-0 run on the Nets, I starting a like affair with that lumbering oaf more and more by the game. Not the prettiest win with that first half and all but at least the Knicks finally dug out from a big hole and came away with the win. A couple days off and then the Cavs come back to the Garden to attempt the season sweep of our Knicks, hopefully the Knicks bring the "not in our house" kind of intensity that they brought in the Magic game and the second half of last night.

Hey Guys, the Knicks Losing Streak Has Ended

(via SNY)

Now that all the Clyde birthday wishes are out of the way, let's talk about last night. I think everyone on and/or following this Knick team needed that one last night. Before this, the Knicks haven't won since St Patrick's Day and even though the Magic were without a true point guard for most of the game, another victory brings this franchise that much closer to the playoffs. Regardless of how they've been playing of late, a team with Stoudemire (who had the quietest 20 points ever) and Carmelo Anthony (who when he drops 39 points and causes havoc on the defense is a lovable scrumb ) could cause some problems for the Bostons or Miamis of the world where every game is kind of a must win or at least 4 of them in a 7 game series.

Onto some randoms - Chauncey Billups of black sneakers/white socks with the home whites fame, please never take that pull up jumper again in big moments, you're going to give me an anxiety attack. And Jared Jefferies, looks like She-Wil and his lumbering oafness will be taking some minutes but I guess that's what happens when you don't even contest a Jason Richardson's last second 3 point attempt! But good job, Sheldon, that was seriously the best 0 point/6 foul preformance in the history of the game. On that Dwight Howard guy, he's almost the MVP of the league but for such a jovial guy, how is he getting all those techs? But hey, the Knicks won, my cereal tastes sweeter, my coffee tastes stronger, all is kind of right in the world this morning.

Heat Face Palm & Thoughts on Knicks/Hawks

(via Got Em Coach)

I could go on about the Knicks victory over Atlanta but THIS PHOTO. Lebron and Wade's body language in their duel press conferences over the last week and more tears being shed in that locker room, but I don't think anyone has seen such a tumultuous 43-20 team in March. Those rumors on those tears made it all the way up from Miami to the Knicks locker room in Atlanta where STAT and Melo were speculating that it was one, Christopher Bosh who was once again crying over another last second Heat loss to one of the NBA's best. I don't want to call anyone "soft" but what's going to happen in May when the Heat lose a game 7 to the Knicks or the Bulls or the Celtics or whoever, is Bosh going to be spread out on the press conference table bawling, cradling a basketball?

Okay, I'll talk about the Knicks for a little bit now. No Melo in the 4th, no big deal apparently. As important as Melo and Billups are for the Knicks now, my favorite part of the trade so far is Anthony Carter hitting 3's at the end of quarters and yelling "Tha Carter 3 bitch." Landry Fields last two games were good enough to justify my purchase of a Landry home jersey, 15/4/4, Landryiest of lines, people. Chauncey Billups was channeling Razor Ramon with a toothpick in street clothes was my favorite bench storyline of the evening over Andy Rautins actually dressing. And, Amar'e jump shot really deserves a "That's Amar'e" Post headline sooner or later.
