Good evening! After a long time traveling, the Knicks are home. They're playing the Kings, which means we have to hear this painfully forced storyline about Rajon Rondo being a free agent possibility ... and also means we have to watch the Knicks play the Kings, which didn't go so hot. This is the Teams In Disarray Bowl. I think they're in way worse shape and Knicksfolk are fussing mostly over short-term issues but whatever, I am biased.
Forget all that. There is great news. Less than three months since someone shot him in the knee, and after a brief and illness-stunted visit to the D-League, Cleanthony Early is BACK:
Cleanthony Early has been recalled from the Westchester Knicks and activated for tonight's game vs. @SacramentoKings— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) March 20, 2016
Awesome. So glad to have him back, and I hope he gets at least a little chance to spin if that's what he desires.There may be some opportunities with a short staff:
For tonight's game vs. @SacramentoKings : Seraphin (sore left foot) & Thomas are unavailable. Anthony is a game-time decision.— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) March 20, 2016
Rambis says Arron Afflalo will start if Anthony can't play. #NYKvsSAC— NEW YORK KNICKS (@nyknicks) March 20, 2016
Melo is still up in the air because of the migraine symptoms that limited him to 40 minutes of Rambis Time Saturday night.
Speaking of Rambis:
Rambis said he wants to maintain "a winning mindset" and hates operating in scenario which isn't about trying to win games....— Alan Hahn (@alanhahn) March 20, 2016
Basically what Rambis is saying is he's not really interested in focusing on development and evaluation of young players vs trying to win.— Alan Hahn (@alanhahn) March 20, 2016
