Hello kiddos!  

The Lakers have faired pretty well in the second games of back-to-backs, and typically play well in New York.  Especially Kobe.  We might be in for a treat.  Also,  I hope the Knicks wear some '60-70's throwbacks like the Lakers and Celtics did last night.  The game's on ESPN tonight, so no Joel and Stu.  I wouldn't mind hearing Clyde the Glide and Mike Breen though.  Instead, we get Breen, JVG, and Mark Jackson.  Oh boy.  Tonight should be fun anyhow.  

Chug away at any mention of:

  • Anytime Amar'e is mentioned as an MVP candidate
  • Carmelo
  • Jeff Van Gundy says something hip-hoppy
  • Madison Square Garden is called the "Mecca of Basketball"
  • Spike Lee

Kill it if:

  • Kobe breaks his own MSG scoring record

Be good, have fun, stay safe...
