Tuesday Old Wives


Richard Ling

Hi! We have a day between Knicks basketball games, so I figure now's a good time to share a few links. By the way, I just got this OneTab Chrome extension, and it helps a lot with an exercise like this one. To the links!

- Why is this pretty Australian fish called the "Old Wife"? The name "apparently refers to the sound made when a fish is caught on hook and line". And it's not even the only fish that goes by that name. People who name fish are weird.

- Amar'e Stoudemire would never speak ill of his coach, but he'd clearly like to be playing more now that he's back and healthy.

Chris Herring on how Carmelo Anthony's only gotten more accurate (and from deeper) on three-point attempts.

- Kevin McElroy's recap of last night quickly turned into a long piece on Melo's tragically heroic season and the decision that awaits him. (And a previous Knickerblogger piece providing some financial context for all that.)

- Thank you to this Goose for sending me this Walt Frazier BMW dealer commercial:


- I don't know what's going on here but I want that Pablo Prigioni image tattooed on my forehead.

Amar'e's got a farm AND he is executive producing a documentary about the African Hebrew Israelites.

- Rob Mahoney re-drafted the 2013 NBA Draft, and Tim Hardaway Jr. went fifth(!)

- Cool visualization of Melo's career scoring.

Marc Berman's report that the Knicks were searching for a backup center after reportedly missing out on Andrew Bynum read to me like an assumption,  nothing more.

Butts! I hope your'e having a lovely day. I hope you ate a good lunch and will eat a good dinner.
