Well, it is now March. That means we sat through December, January and February -- a period usually full of snowstorm possibilities and white fantasies -- and came out with nothing. Nodda. Ziltch. No Noreasters to speak of. One or two light events came through, but whatever snow they dropped didn't last for long.
So I think it is time to name this winter that never was. To dub on thee a moniker that will sum up our feelings for the disappointing few months that we just experienced.
And now, I'd like to take this moment to honor the Winter That Never Was, and to formally name it...

Melo to the Knicks, Deron Williams to the Nets. Basketball is back in NYC!

Where oh where will he go? I don't think he is going to stay in Cleveland. He's been there for a long time now and almost every year it has been "almost a championship". There is no reason why that should change. Chicago certainly looks like a good prospect for him, considering that he would have guys like Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Luol Deng as a supporting cast.
Due to the fact that I live in the NYC area, I'd love to see LeBron sign with the Knicks or the Nets, but preferably the Nets. Playing for the Knicks means that every move he makes is going to be scrutinized and broken down even more than if he went to a place like Chicago. One bad week, one season without making the playoffs-which is entirely possible given the state of the Knicks roster-would get him run out of town. What would be ideal for him is to have the glitz and excitement of the New York area and the attention of their media, but without the pressure. And he can get that with the New Jersey Nets. True, they were the worst team in the NBA this year. But I've heard more than one radio personality say that the Nets have a bigger upside than the Knicks. They will be playing in a brand new stadium this year-the Prudential Center-and the team has begun building a new arena in Brooklyn. Even until they move to Brooklyn, he will be playing in the NY Metro area. It's like playing in New York without the pressure of playing in New York. The Nets have a very talented young center in Brook Lopez, a great shot at drafting either John Wall or Evan Turner, and the ability to trade Devin Harris and get a solid supporting cast in return. They can afford to pay him, and believe me, there will be no lack of buzz or attention in Newark. Something to think about...

I knew Obama was a bit of baller, but I didn't think his stroke was as sweet as it was at the end of the match.

The NFL Network pulled a fast one on Shawn Merriman yesterday. Really funny video.
