This is a new feature we’re going to add to Buckets Over Broadway this season. From time to time, we will collect a batch of New York Knicks related links from around the web to share with our audience. The Knicks blogger community always has lots to offer and can bring another perspective to our coverage. Check out the Knicks links to some works below.
– Posting and Toasting’s Joe Flynn asks James Dolan to kindly leave the Knicks alone, because in the current New York sports world — ignoring the loath-able Brooklyn Nets — the 2013-14 Knicks may be the most promising of the bunch. And that may not last long.
– Ian Begley of ESPN New York got a quote from agent Rick Kaplan (a representative of Marcus Camby, among others), who said Glen Grunwald’s demotion was “absurd.” Kaplan, who’s had experiences and interactions with Grunwald, seems to be a big fan of Grunwald’s work, so that’s worth noting from someone within the business.
– Jonah Ballow of Knicks Now detailed Carmelo Anthony’s boxing regimen this offseason. Among the interesting things in the article: “…boxing can offer distinct advantages for basketball players looking to improve balance, mobility, agility, pivoting, and overall power. There’s also the cerebral part of boxing that challenges even world class athletes to build mental fortitude.” Seems like a cool way to train for the season.
– Metta World Peace appeared on Key & Peele. He anchored a news skit called “Metta World Peace” and rambled about the choice of eating one’s hand over one’s penis. Metta on the Knicks is going to be so much fun.
– Also from Knicks Now, an “All-Access” mini-episode about what teammates will call Metta World Peace. Quite a variety of answers in there, but Pablo Prigioni’s answer easily takes the cake.
That’s it for today. It’s a little bit of a slow news day. Today is Media Day for some NBA teams. It’s almost here, the season is almost here!
