GAME THREAD! It's a game thread! It's a basketball game! Holy shit! The New York Knicks Summer League bros tip off their first game in Las Vegas against the Memphis Grizzlies at 4 PM Eastern. It'll be televised on MSG and, from the look of things, NBA TV as well (meanwhile, the Jeremy Lin game-winner vs. the Raptors game is on MSG right now).
Speaking of Lin, he has signed his offer sheet but the Knicks STILL haven't received it from the Rockets, so the three-day clock has not started ticking. New York has until midnight to match or decline the offer sheet for Landry Fields, which the Raptors were kind enough to send over in a timely fashion (and that one had to come all the way from Canada, probably via puffin). Hurry up, Houston.
I'll share those bits of news whenever they arrive. In the meantime, watch yourself some Summer League ball and come on in here to comment about it. Get 'em, SummerKnicks!
