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?

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/22/22

3 Up 1. NY Times Investigative Series on Haiti - The history of Haiti is such a complex (and unfortunate) one. Really, it's a story that goes untold, specifically for the context of how the country is viewed. From being forced to pay operations to enslavers (yeah, you read that right), to so many other historical setbacks - including American interventions - the nation's history is so well laid out in this latest NY Times piece. I urge you to give it a read.  2. Equal Pay for US Women's Soccer Team - Kudos to US Soccer on coming around to giving the USWNT their due - equal pay for prize money from the World Cup. It's a start, and more importantly, it's a push forward for women's sports that do in fact push the needle in comparison, or more so, to their male counterparts.  3. Kate McKinnon - Random "UP" here, but I'm doing it anyway...A few SNL usuals are rumored to be walking away, including Kate McKinnon. The show obviously doesn't carry the

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/10/22

3 Up 1. Ketanji Brown Jackson - The new Supreme Court Justice is a win for black and brown girls everywhere. Representation matters.  2. Women's College Basketball Ratings - I'm giving the women's tournament its due as it garnered the highest television ratings ever for the national championship game in eighteen years. And that was head-to-head with the Grammys! Spare me the "women's sports don't draw" tired narrative. Invest in women's sports, period.  3. Baseball Returns - Sure, the sport bothered fans over the winter with its ugly and insulting labor spat. However, it's back, and that's cool.  3 Down 1. Ukraine Images - Unfortunately, I had to put the ongoing acts in Ukraine back in the tops spot. Have you seen some of the images coming out of the country? For me, it was the image of parents writing children's information (i.e. names, details of eating habits, etc...) on their backs - on their backs! - in anticipation of being separated

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Amateur (2018)

What is it about? The recruiting and exploitation of a teenage basketball phenom expose the immoral undercurrent world of amateur sports and business.  Who is in it?  Michael Rainey Jr. - Terron Forte Jr.  Brian White - Vince Josh Charles - Coach Gaines

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/27/22

3 Up 1. Volodymyr Zelensky - The President of Ukraine delivered a speech this week that certainly went viral not just for his take as the current war on Ukraine ensues, but for his honesty and courage throughout it.  2. Kentaji Brown Jackson - In a world on fire, here at home President Biden nominated Jackson, who becomes the first black woman to serve on the highest court in the nation. That's so cool. I'm happier for the tons of little girls of color who can dream of being a Supreme Court Judge, and now believe it.
