The snow has fallen and there’s virtually nobody to be seen on the roads!
There aren’t many people around the tri-state areas cruising the airways much either at this point, which has made it difficult for the Knicks to come back home following Friday night’s victory over the Timberwolves.
Since we’re all snowed in together, let’s take a look at some links to figure out what’s going on.
Seen here at Newsday, the Knicks were sidelined in Minnesota on Friday night, despite initially planning to fly home after the game. The article goes on to say that the team held hopes to fly back to the Big Apple at some point on Saturday.
Such plans appear to have been confirmed by the high-flying (pun-intended) James White, whose tweet from this morning suggests the Knicks are on their way home.
As far as the Knicks’ matchup against the Timberwolves, it proved to be an up and down contest during which, although New York had a couple of hiccups throughout, Carmelo Anthony and company pulled away with a win. For more details, you can visit this link here to venture off to “Posting & Toasting” for our friend Seth’s lively recap.
Despite his efforts to move on, Anthony’s shuffle with Kevin Garnett last month proves to continue haunting him. Our buddies at ESPN New York have more information here about a heckler who tried to use that against Anthony on Friday night in Minnesota.
And then finally…we’ve got a link from a developing story to share. When two teams each have a player the other one has interest in, one would think they’d engage in some trade talks about a potential swap, right? Well, should one employ that line of thinking, it would make sense that with the Knicks’ interest in Suns’ swingman Jared Dudley may come talks between the two squads about a trade for Dudley and Iman Shumpert, who Phoenix has long coveted since his draft year. My friend Tommy Dee from “The Knicks Blog” shares his thoughts here on the interesting development.
That’s all for now! Here’s to staying safe amongst all this snow.
