It's even worse than it appears..

  • If the NBA playoffs were Christmas, I already got the two presents I wanted, as a diehard Knicks fan.#
    • The Nets were swept and eliminated.#
    • Trae Young was ineffective against Miami and the Hawks were eliminated too. #
  • I want to add, I don't have anything against the Nets, I would probably be interested in them if they stopped trying to form superteams and win at all costs "this year." And if they advised Nets players not to openly dis the Knicks because if they're ever going to get fans for the Nets they're all also going to be Knicks fans. #
  • I feel about the Nets the way Lakers fans probably feel about the Clippers. Sort of meh. Why do they even bother, for example. But for years when the Knicks aren't in the postseason (which is most of them) why not root for the home team that's in contention? #
  • I say this as a lifelong Mets fan. Proving I'm not all that simple.#
  • Anyway I now get to relax and enjoy the rest of the playoffs, without any goals, just hoping for some good basketball. #
  • PS: Why Trae Young? He wasn't nice to the Knicks last year. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
