“People gave ear to an upstart astrologer who strove to show that the earth revolves, not the heavens or the firmament, the sun and the moon…. This fool wishes to reverse the entire science of astronomy; but sacred Scripture tells us [Joshua 10:13] that Joshua commanded the sun to stand still, and not the earth”
-Martin Luther on Copernicus’ On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres
Mike D’Antoni doesn’t want epicycles. When he gazes out onto the finely waxed hardwood surface of the practice floor, the Italian League legend, former Phoenix Suns head coach, offensive guru and current man at the helm of the S.S. New York Knicks sees something revolutionary. It’s not the old guard, earth-based, slow-paced offensive game of decades before. D’Antoni is a heliocentrist.

A few noticeables:
-The guardian angel kid has a slick lefty stroke. In a dress shirt, nonetheless.
-For some reason, Randy Foye was very surprised when he blinked into existence in that gym. Also, he was already wearing a Bennett Bears jersey. Was he wearing that before he was summoned?
-Why is Randy associating with tween angels?
-Could they only get Randy Foye for this guest spot? The kid who sucks at basketball also feels obligated to mention that Randy’s in the NBA. Throwin’ him a bone.
-That was a terrible looking dribble drill around the two kids.
Remember what Randy said, honeybunnies. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!
