Turn On The Knicks Throwback Thursday – May 30th Edition – New York Knicks Draft Blunders

Last week, we kicked our New York Knicks Draft Blunders with the Round Mound of Disappointment known as Michael Sweetney, but trust me, the Knicks have matched that incompetency on much more than one occasion.

Finalizing the Celtics roster

The preseason concluded yesterday with a win over the Raptors but now the hard part comes for the coaching staff and management.  Deciding on the final roster spots, to complete a 15 man roster, is always a difficult decision to make.  Only 12 players get to dress for games, but teams can carry up to 15 players.  Typically teams opt to send players to the Developmental League...
