The Celtics (12-2) are good, real good, but c'mon. This seemed more like a game between the Harlem Globetrotters and the Washington Generals than an NBA contest. All that was missing was Garnett throwing a pail of confetti on Thomas, Paul Pierce teasing the Knicks' Stephon Marbury with a ball on an elastic cord and Ray Allen doing dribbling tricks at center court.
If it wasn't for Robinson's H-O-R-S-E game like 3-pointer, the Knicks would have set a team and Celtics' opponent record scoring lows. The Knicks were 1-point shy of matching a franchise scoring low of 58 against Utah on Dec. 15, 2000. New York (4-10) also suffered its third worst loss in its lengthy and storied franchise history that began in 1946.
What else can you really say about last night. It was a joke. Just like the Knicks won't watch tape of that game, the Celtics won't either. There's just nothing to learn from it except "don't bring in overpaid babies as players and if you do, don't lose the respect of those overpaid babies."
Here's my solution for the Knicks: Contract the team, move the Sonics to New York, and change the name to the "Knicks" (sort of like the Cleveland Browns situation a few years back). Dolan and Zeke go away and Durant gets to play in the biggest market in the world. This is David Sterns dream scenario. Make it happen.
