The New York Knicks are a geek squad full of dork-ass poindexters, and never was that more apparent than during the final week of May. Naturally we had a great deal of Carmelo Anthony TMNT-related posts:

But he wasn't the only one going full-on fanboy. In an exclusive interview with P&T, nerd extraordinaire Robin Lopez announced that he will no longer be boycotting the CW show "The Flash."
@rolopez42 @DCComics @geoffjohns @Williamson_Josh are you a fan of the TV show at all?— Joseph Flynn (@ChinaJoeFlynn) May 25, 2016
@DCComics @geoffjohns @Williamson_Josh @ChinaJoeFlynn I will now that we have both Wallys. TV Flash strike has officially ended.— Robin Lopez (@rolopez42) May 25, 2016
In more adult nerd fare, Jerian Grant appeared crushed by the ending to last week's "Game of Thrones".
Hold The Door!— Jerian Grant (@JerianGrant) May 24, 2016
Grant also took the time to catch the Cavaliers in action, and came away impressed.
That's a nice play Cleveland keeps running. Tough to guard. Help has to come from the strong side— Jerian Grant (@JerianGrant) May 24, 2016
I don't know which particular play he was talking about, but by all means, Jeff Hornacek, let Jerian run it!
Langston Galloway made sure to bring a snack for the fourth quarter of Saturday's epic Thunder-Warriors tilt:

Most importantly, we have the delightful twitter pen pal relationship between Melo and Kristaps Porzingis. Melo started it off with a very random, very touching Tweet:

Kristaps retweeted it, and then added a nice birthday tribute to his veteran teammate:
Happy Birthday @carmeloanthony! pic.twitter.com/0ADkEXea8y— Kristaps Porzingis (@kporzee) May 29, 2016
I love these guys.
