The New York Knicks are playing basketball

Isiah Thomas has survived game one. Barely.

The Knicks won 118-117 in triple OT over the Grizzlies from Memphis, where there are undoubtedly few bears. New York blew a 19-point lead, which likely had Isiah Thomas' heart beating awfully fast.

But as of now, Isiah and the Knicks are 1-0.

Though we won't let Thomas escape from our grasp that easily. The Knicks' top draft pick in the 2006 Draft, Renaldo Balkman from basketball powerhouse South Carolina, had a night to remember only if he planned on coming across as a jackass when trying to pick up some NBA-grade pussy at the local club.

(Did that last sentence make any sense? We're not sure it did. So why'd we leave it if it didn't make sense? Because anytime we get the chance to say "NBA-grade pussy," we jump at it.)

Anyway, Balkman, whose great t-shirt you can score over at the YAYsports! NBA store, scored 0 points and picked up 4 fouls in only 8 minutes of action. Way to start off your NBA career.

But Balkman's in good company with another rookie who started off his NBA career with a dud. No. 1 pick Andrea Bargnani played about as poorly Wednesday as he speaks English. The Raptors top pick scored 2 points in 9 minutes, but did learn just what a raptor really is.

We're 128% sure that if the Knicks had the top pick this past draft, they'd have made the same mistake as Toronto and picked Bargnani instead of, oh, Tyrus Thomas, Adam Morrison, or Brandon Roy. But the Knicks didn't have the first pick in the draft, they had the 20th. So Isiah chose to jump the gun there and go with Balkman, instead of, oh, Rajon Rondo, Marcus Williams, or Kyle Lowry.

And after a night, the pick seems just as fucking brain-dead as it did on Draft Night.

In other news: It is rumored that Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash cut his hair because he is being approached by George Steinbrenner to play third base for the New York Yankees.

But hey, at least Balkman is a big guy that can play with his back to the basket... er, wait. Well, at least he's got a solid outside jumper... er, wait. Well, at least he can do something offensively... er, wait. Well, at least he can guard the big guys down low... er, wait.

Tell you "diehard" knick fans what, pretend you're the coach some more and wish you knew what you were talking about. Wanna let Charlotte have Balkman? I'd be damn proud to see him here so I don't have to pull for your sorry asses...

Balkman should have been a 2nd or 3rd round pick. He ain't Larry Legend. Blame that dumbass Isiah Thomas for the pick. Don't blame the player. He will at least work hard as hell and do as he is told by the coach. Thomas acts like he won something. Basically, a loser in a nice suit.
