When the scalpel hits your thigh like a big pizza pie, that's Amar'e

Amar'e isn't really a factor anymore he just represents a bad contract for NY at this point.

If you want to bet on any team getting ousted in the first round of the playoffs, the Knicks are your best bet.

Dam'n.

Ah yes, there's the familiar old Knicks I used to know and love.  All this "winning" this year has thrown me for a loop, but it's nice to know there's plenty of failure left in the organization.  And oh hey, Kurt Thomas was in the starting lineup -- feels like 2003 all over again.

It's so weird having Thomas and Flight White in the starting lineup and then playing for like 8 minutes each, even though it makes sense to keep bringing JR off the bench. But I was at the game last night and they won by 29 so I can't complain. The Jazz should be embarrassed.

But back to the topic at hand...Amar'e's (that's so weird to type) been really good and his loss hurts, but at the same time they did pretty well without him at the beginning of the year. But the timing sucks. Six weeks would put him back in the lineup right at the start of the playoffs. Not the best timing to re-integrating a rusty player.

Their most likely matchups are Boston, Atlanta, or Milwaukee. For some reason I'm not scared of Atlanta in a 7-game series at all. Boston always plays the Knicks tough and they've actually been fine without Rondo, so maybe. As for Milwaukee...that's just a weird team that I sort of like. You've got the gunner of all gunners in Monta Ellis, but lots of other guys who are quietly solid. Particularly LARRY SANDERS! (to steal from Zach Lowe), who the advanced stats guys would probably make their king if they couldn't pick LeBron. I don't think the Bucks could beat the Knicks in a 7-game series, but they're interesting.

As a long time Dallas Mavericks fan, I have to warn you that 2011 notwithstanding, Jason Kidd has a propensity of disappearing in the playoffs.

He did just fine for the Nets...in 2002 and 2003. In all seriousness though, he's a role player at this point. "Jason Kidd disappearing" isn't high on my list of concerns.

Also, some fun stat lines from last night's game:

Steve Novak: 17 or 18 points (don't remember) before his first assist or rebound
Chris Copeland: 7 minutes, 12 points, 3 fouls. The exact kind of performance you want out of your "he's not going in unless the game's already been decided" guy

It's only 3/4 of the way through the season and he's already disappeared.

/He's also old as shiat.

The East is so bad the Knicks could lose their top 4 players for the rest of the season and still pull a 3 or 4 seed.

Well, you'll probably get better odds on it. But "team playing Miami in the first round" is your best bet.
