It’s a tough day for New York sports fans. If you’re like me, just close your eyes and imagine Opening Day at Yankee Stadium while repeating “Let’s go Rangers! Let’s go Rangers!” I guess this is how bullied gay kids in high school feel. Just remember, New York, it gets better. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to masturbate to this picture…

Trivia Time: Wilt Scores 100

This week marks the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game against the Knicks. Not bad for someone who literally stood head and shoulders taller than the competition. By the end of the game, Chamberlain’s Philadelphia Warrior teammates were fouling the Knicks to get the ball back in the hands of the Dipper. A little cheap, but it still doesn’t diminish the magnitude of the accomplishment. However, only 4,124 fans were in attendance at the neutral site for one of the greatest nights in basketball history. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and Wilt’s corpse will make you 20,001. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

Where was Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game played? (and a hint: it is not Flint, Michigan)


The Knicks Are A Regular *NSYNC

At a fan event this week, Landry Fields belted out a surprise singing performance to Billionaire with a Knick twist. Who knew he had pipes like that? He’s a regular Justin Bieber. Iman Shumpert followed it up with a little freestyling. If Steve Novak was there, maybe he could have done classic Guns N’ Roses. He strikes me as the type of guy who would kill it doing Welcome to the Jungle on karaoke night. At least the Knicks could fall back on a Grammy if they don’t win the Title this year.

A Note To Knicks Fans

I never boo my guys. I know that they’re not always giving it their all and that sucks. I’ll yell. I’ll yell at them to run faster or pass the ball. I honestly like most of the players on the teams I root for, but I don’t like all of them. It still doesn’t stop me from cheering for them because they’re on my team. It’s just a personal choice. If you booed the Marbury/Curry-era Knicks, I don’t have a problem with it. They sucked and their effort and skill was less than stellar.

However, as a fan, you have to realize that booing doesn’t help your team. If you’re doing a Powerpoint at work and it sucks so you’re trying to fix it, do you think it would help if somebody was booing you WHILE you were working. Look, I know this is New York and this is a demanding town, but chill out with the early booing. Yeah, the Knicks played horribly against Toronto and Charlotte but if you really want the team to win, don’t fucking boo. I hate it.

And leave Toney Douglas alone. He’s a third-year guy and was picked 29th in the draft. What do you expect from him? He’s making about 1/20 of the salary as Carmelo Anthony. Its not like he’s a high-priced free agent that isn’t living up to his contract. He’s a kid that was thrust into the starting lineup but only because there was literally nobody else. Shumpert and Bibby might take his spot for now but don’t boo Toney Douglas because he misses a wide open three or dribbles the ball off his foot. And if you cheer louder than usual when he comes out, it’s still a slap in the face. Mistakes happen and the lockout didn’t help anybody, much less a young guy given a vast new responsibility. If you think he’s dogging it, then sure, give him shit. Otherwise, leave him alone.
