I'm pretty burned out after being swept by the Celtics so I'm taking the week off. I know that many of you will be unable to survive without finding out who the Jabroni of the Week is, but you're going to have to make due. In the meantime, I'm going to work on redesigning The Suite a bit. Maybe move some sofas around to make room for a jacuzzi.
The Celitcs series was like a dream that turned into a nightmare. To top it off, we still didn't win a playoff game. After 10 years, it's unacceptable. I'm still optimistic. We have two of the top 15 players in the league and they'll have the whole summer to get in sync and add complementary pieces. Usually after one of my teams gets booted from the playoffs, I don't want to think about it. In this case, it's different. I wish they were playing right now. I can't wait until October (or longer). The first time I saw the Knicks lose a playoff series, it was back in 1991 against the Bulls. I still remember my mom trying to explain that the Knicks weren't playing games anymore. I was sad then and I'm sad now. There are still important questions to answer. On the top of the list is whether Donnie Walsh is coming back. He may have his differences with ownership, but he's the man for the job and he needs to finish it. It would be ridiculous not to bring him back. He's intelligent, patient, and resourceful---great qualities for somebody who's putting together a basketball team. Yeah, he's not perfect but nobody is. After that, it has to be decided who's going to coach the team. Coach D didn't do himself any favors by getting swept.
I'll be back next week. Stop complaining. If you need to kill some time, go on Redtube.

Capitals win series 4-1
The Rangers are like an ugly girl with huge tits. No matter how revolting she is, she's always going to get attention from guys because of those boobies. Henrik Lundqvist is that set of double D's.
Scream 4 had its share of detractors but nobody can say anything bad about Emma Roberts. Girl has a killer body. And despite her good girl image, I think she's got a little naughty hidden in there. I really liked Scream 4. It was probably the weakest film of the franchise but I liked the direction it went in. It just didn't get there smoothly. It was long, too self-aware, and tried to be too funny. I'm old fashioned. All I need is a Jamie Kennedy monologue, Rose McGowan's tits, and some kills, and I'm happy. With that said, the ending was great and I liked how the recent spate of horror remakes and celebrity culture played into the movie. And of course, my girl Emma. She beats Aunt Julia anytime. Dayyyyyyyyyyyyuuuuuuuuuuuuum!

Celtics lead series 3-0
They overwhelmed us from the opening tip. Swallowed us whole. This is what I was worried about from the beginning of the series. The Knicks looked they were trying too hard. They were slow to adjust and rotate on D. Pierce and Allen were hitting their shots. The Celtics were getting every call and bounce but the Knicks didn't do anything to change that. They didn't handle the pressure of hosting their first playoff game in seven years very well. It's disappointing because I was hoping they would come out and crack some heads, but everyone looked tight. The ball was being forced to Amar'e early on and he was pressing a little too much, but he must be hurting. Nobody handled the situation well. Nobody stepped up and took charge. Maybe not having a veteran like Chauncey out there hurt. The only excuse I can offer is that the officiating was poor but that's not a good excuse. I'm not giving up hope on the series. The Knicks have to play with pride on Sunday and match their intensity of the first two games. If they keep the open shots to a minimum, get to every loose ball, and catch a few breaks, they should have a chance...with or without Chauncey and Amar'e.
