The man who fears war and squats opposing

My words for stour, hath no blood of crimson

But is fit only to rot in womanish peace

Far from where worth’s won and the swords clash

For the death of such sluts I go rejoicing;

Yea, I fill all the air with my music.

Heliocentric Basketball in the Big Apple

“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.

Saturday Box-And-One

So I decided on a new “segment” if you will.  It’s called the Saturday Box-And-One, and really it’s just a glorified link dump.  But hey, it’s OUR glorified link dump. Here we go:

1.) Skipping right past the goggles and into the operating room:  Amare Stoudemire will miss the remainder of the season after detaching a retina in Thursday’s game against the Clippers. It’s well known by most of you already, but the injury is going to do a lot to keep Phoenix out of the playoffs and could have an influence on whether STAT stays in the desert or not.

2.) Hey, at least they still have Marquette to root for: Things just keep getting worse for the Milwaukee Bucks, as LBJ drops 55 as the Cavs zoom past them.  This is LeBron’s SEVENTH career fifty point game, second only to Kobe for active players.  (Plus, Kobe’s got a few years on him.  The King is a stud.)

3.) A sad note: Utah Jazz owner Larry Miller died Friday at the age of 64.  Our hearts go out to the Jazz family.

4.) KG to miss three games with sprained right knee: Basically speaks for itself.  Garnett was sent back to Boston on Friday to get the MRI on said knee.

5.) Report: Warriors reject trade that would send Baron to Golden State for Maggette and Marcus Williams: Apparently, this has been confirmed by a team official too.  Seems pretty interesting that LA even offers this deal, which if accepted would basically be both GM’s saying “We screwed up.”

There you have it.  The inaugural Saturday Box-And-One. See you next Saturday.
