Quote of the day
"It's on TNT? I didn't know that. I don't care about that. We are the laughingstock of the league right now. It's nothing to hide. We are." -- Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, in advance of a Thursday night game vs. the Nets
Tough choice tonight: Houston at Jacksonville in the NFL network game, or Knicks at Nets on TNT. Of those four teams, the Nets have the best winning percentage, 27.7%, and the four teams have an aggregate winning percentage of only 21% (which will rise significantly tonight.) Must see TV.
Interesting occurrence in the RIFC this morning: As a result of an official stat change, I_Am_Canadian lost one point in last weekend’s game. The consequence is that his team drops from the #6 seed to the #7 seed, as he’s now 0.5 point behind Bonka (for the full season), instead of 0.5 point ahead. It will be interesting to see if/how that impacts the first round playoff games, since the 2/7 and 3/6 matchups are now changed. Fortunately, it only impacted the seedings, and not the overall playoff qualifications.
