Happy February, ladies and Gelabales. On an active day in the NBA, the Knicks are in Portland to face the Trailblazers. As you'll hear many times this evening, this is Zach Randolph's first trip back to the Rose Garden since this summer's big deal. Being a bitter, sarcastic Knicks fan, I'd love to see Z-Bo drop like 30 and 15 on 12-14 shooting in a blowout Knicks win. I love these Blazers, but I especially love when a good storyline gets thoroughly shit upon. I know that won't happen. Just let me dream.
Meanwhile, would you really do that trade back? Sure, Zach's a ballhog and the Knicks suck and we're even deeper into salary cap oblivion, but like...CHANNING FRYE. I don't miss watching that dude fiddle with his mouthguard night after night. In the era of HD television, I'll take Z-Bo's neck rolls over Frye's stringy saliva any day of the week. And don't even get me started about that peach fuzz.
It'd be fun to shut some people up, if just for a night. Get them W's.
