Happy Fourth of July, everybody. I hope everyone has a relaxing holiday, and that the weather holds up.
By the way, if you didn't know, P&T's National Dependence Day (the day we joined SB Nation) is March 8th. Circle the date.
I leave you with this piece from a 2002 Yale newspaper comparing the Knicks to the U.S. of A. It's a good read, and a good reminder of how far we've come since the Scott Layden era. And I mean that. Trying to remain optimistic about the Zach Randolph deal is a steep improvement over trying to remain optimistic about the Antonio McDyess deal. Our pricy malaise is of a higher caliber these days, and I'm damn proud of it.*
*That's in reference to the Knicks...not the U.S. of A.
