I don’t want to speak out of turn, but I’m pretty confident in saying that this is the best ending to a show that’s ever been shown on a television screen. At the very least, it’s the eggiest show ending you’ve ever seen.
Then after the jump, enjoy a goodbye poem that I wrote for all the non-playoff teams we won’t see again after tonight. Enjoy it!
On Wednesday’s live episode of The Starters, the guys discuss: who the Nets would rather play in the first-round of the playoffs — Raps or Bulls, J.J. Redick’s great game, a few of their best and worst preseason predictions, outdoor basketball, Executive of the Year, and disastrous seasons. All that, plus eggs to the chest; pies to the face.
Shoutout: Chris Paul had 21 points and 10 assists, which is just about as good as you can expect on a night where at least half of the teams playing could not have cared less about the game.
Not so much: Randy Foye went 2-12 in the Nuggets’ loss to the Clippers, so he’s a good candidate. But so is the Knicks-Nets game, which is the worst possible combination of teams for the last week of the season — team that’s out of the playoffs versus team that would be happier to lose so that they don’t have to play the Bulls in round one. No good.
However: Unless you are a Knicks fan, that is. In that case, you probably enjoyed last night.
Now that their season doesn’t matter, the Knicks were having so much fun last night. Dunkers like this, crossovers like that — just some very good footage for that year-end #KnicksTape that no one is going to want to watch.
