This is it. This why you play the games. This is where men become legends. The Knicks' path to the Las Vegas Summer League Championship begins tonight against James Nunnally and the rival Miami Heat. The 15th-seeded Knicks tip off against the 18th-seeded Heat at 7 PM Vegas time (10 PM Eastern) in the Cox Pavilion. If they win, they'll play again at 7 PM on Thursday against the second-seeded Bulls. If they lose, they'll face the loser of the Mavericks-Clippers game at 1 PM on Friday. Don't ask how these seedings and match-ups are determined. Just trust me and get EXTREMELY EXCITED.
Will Tim Hardaway Jr. return, or will he abandon his team at the season's most crucial juncture? Will Jerome Jordan step up as the veteran leader this inexperienced team needs? Who will coach the Knicks? Tune in at 10 to find out (on NBA TV for sure. On MSG...I think.). I'm so nervous.
