In a move that could be considered the second most intriguing acquisition of a rookie son of an ex-Knick player in weeks, the Knicks announced that they've signed Dan Grunfeld to help fill out the training camp roster.
Donnie Walsh has clearly shown that he's willing to play into the nostalgia of Knicks fans: first he traded the specter of Frederic Weis for Patrick Ewing Jr., son of an all-time great Knick, but the way I see it, this is just a blatant attempt to remind Knicks fans of the glory days of Grunfeld's time on our 2008 Summer League team, but goodness knows that there's no way in hell that Grunfeld reprises the pivotal role he filled on that highly successful squad, who, at 2-3, had one of the best winning percentages in recent Knick history. In short, Dan: hang up the cleats. We can't keep living in the past. Brian Greene isn't walking through that door, and our team can't afford distractions like you at the cost of rebuilding our franchise. Retiring wouldn't lessen what Dan Grunfeld did for us in the past, but hanging on too long just might.
We also signed some fellow named Allan Houston, but that's neither here nor there.
