Page of Fame Class of 2019 - Knicks Free Agent Cap Space


You knew this was coming. You had to, no? If you've been a reader of this blog, or you know me personally, you are well aware that I am (read: unfortunately) a fan of the New York Knicks. And with that fandom comes misery, disappointment, and of course, the proverbial false hope that is wrapped up in yes, free agent cap space.

Sure, there was that one summer back in 1996 (see how far back we have to go?) where the Knicks acquired Allan Houston and Chris Childs via free agency, then traded for Larry Johnson. What a summer...I'll hold it collectively in my heart. 

Since then it's been two years of tanking and clearing cap space for LeBron James who decided to take his talents elsewhere. We got Amare Stoudemire, and unlike the narrative most media outlets portray, as a Knicks fan, I have nothing but love for STAT.

In 2015, we thought we had a shot at Kevin Durant and not only left us for the Golden State Warriors (the nerve), he never even granted us a meeting. We sign Joakhim Noah instead. Ugh. SMH. 

And again we had plenty of cash in 2019, and well, the hype of "CAP SPACE" once again let us down. The likes of Julius Randle, Bobby Portis, and Marcus Morris are still up to be determined. 

Regardless, the constant throws of Knicks Cap Space and it's ties to one day ending this Knicks misery of losing is now reached epic levels - to the point where I've realized I've wasted too much space on this blog dedicated to it's options, potential, and overall importance, that it MUST be considered for the DP Page of Fame. 

So heres to you New York Knicks Free Agent Cap Space. I honestly have no idea what you mean, because you exist, but you know, we've never seen you mean anything else but just well - exist. 

PS - We have insane cap flexibility for the next two years. Who should we sign?

Exorcising Demons with a Breen "Double Bang!"

These sorts of moments feel like they don't happen to us.  Well, they happen VERY rarely - I'm talking Larry Johnson's 4-point play-rare. Yeah, it's been THAT long.  But watching this New York Knicks team score eight points in less than thirty-five seconds, including a sequence that will forever live in my fandom, sits right with that LJ garden-rocking shot.  I sat on my couch in absolute shock at what I just saw.  "How the hell did they just win that game?!"  It's the kind of moment this fanbase deserves. It's the moment that releases and exorcises some demons that haunt us from the trauma of experiences.  Namely you, Reggie Miller.  I loved it. And the icing on the cake was Mike Breen - Oh, Mike Breen, the loveable man with the most epic voice that has narrated so much of my basketball-loving fandom - with not one, but two signature "Bang!" calls.  I'll never let this one down. Ever.  I'm not sure where this team will wrap up the se

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/28/24

3 Up 1. DiVincenzo Shot - Yeah, I'm biased. And you know what, I don't care. This moment brought me so many jobs this week, and it still is. "Bang! Bang!"  2. Caitlin Clark Effect - Well, here we go. So many of the WNBA teams have begun moving their games against the Indiana Fever to larger arenas. The upcoming WNBA season is going to be so incredibly interesting. 3. Candace Parker - Rounding out a hoops-heavy "Up" this week is the retirement of Candace Parker. Yes, she drives the Knicks fanbase bonkers, but Parker is one of the greatest to ever lace them up. It's a shame she had to retire due to injury, but nonetheless, she should be proud. I personally will remember the 2021 WNBA Finals where she led her hometown Chicago Sky over the star-studded Phoenix Mercury.  3 Down 1. Campus Protests - I've witnessed them personally at NYU. And we are set to see these protests continue, and likely grow, on campuses over the next few weeks. We are likely to s
