Congratulations to the New York Knicks on winning the 2012 NBA Finals. Wait, they are still down 3-1?

Is this not one of the saddest videos ever? Congrats, buddy! Your team finally won a playoff game! Does this make MSG the Mecca of Basketball again? Or do you have to actually win a playoff series – like 27 other teams have done since 2001 – in order to reclaim that distinction? On a serious note, what is the over/under for points the Knicks are going to lose by on Wednesday- 20? 30? 40?

“But Jeremy Lin is coming back!” Good, Lebron won’t allow him to cross half-court with the ball in his hands.

I’m happy that the Knicks got the proverbial monkey off their back, but this series is over. Vegas can’t make a spread big enough for Wednesday night’s game, but because the big New York market is going to drive the +11 spread down. Wait until game time when the spread gets under 10 and then lay some coin down and just sit back and laugh. It’s going to be ugly.
