Knicks Fanatics

The Ultimate In Knicks Fandom and Fellowship


If you have nothing better to do, check out STARBURY TV. If you have nothing better to do, you clearly need a life or life support.

Some would want you to believe that this is a situation comedy, but I think it is being promoted as Alternate Reality TV.

367,000 views.  989 fans.  He is talking about making news and putting ESPN out of business, I think.  LMAO.

WALSH TV next.  A show with no action.  Later.

    I can’t watch Starbury fall apart further and further. I wish the dude well he’s still a son of the maker.

    • Word up O&B! SM is taking his No Better Acting (NBA) to cyberspace. Who are we to judge? I will pass on the MSM Bus leaving tracks on the man’s @$$ anmd inked up side of his neck. Like he says, call him crazy but he’s still worth about $50 million (though those may be delusional numbers).

      Steady while SM looks at the man in the mirror while listening to gospel songs and cries.

  2. Cablevision is set to spin off MSG units, including Knicks, according to source

    Bloomberg News

    Thursday, July 30th 2009, 4:00 AM

    Cablevision is preparing to spin off its Madison Square Garden units, including the New York Knicks basketball team and Radio City Music Hall, according to a person familiar with the plan.

    Splitting off the units will let Cablevision focus on its more profitable cable television business and may lure potential buyers for the company, such as Time Warner Cable Inc. or Comcast Corp., Rich Greenfield, an analyst at Pali Capital LLC, said this month.

    The assets being spun off would also include the Madison Square Garden arena, the Rangers hockey team and two New York-area sports networks.

    Cablevision spokeswoman Kim Kerns declined to comment.

    Stockholders would receive one share of the new company, to be called Madison Square Garden, for every share of Cablevision they own, said the person familiar with the plans, who declined to be identified because the plan isn’t public.

    Keep hope alive

    • Well, well. True to form, Tman comes through with the other shoe. The 2010 plan is now revealed. While Just Blogin, Steady posited that this whole plan reeked of bringing down the dollar, paring down principal with hopes of keeping the fans’ interest. The money people on this blog (Statesman, Cooley, Lives) know what’s good.
      Steady says look for the likes of LBJ et al. (his dawgs) to become a Player-Owner in the NBA or a whole bunch of Nike endorsers to put their money where their balls are. These Kats, in essence, will say–the salary cap is the ceiling for the player/farm-hand on the plantation. There is no ceiling to the profit ownership can make. That’s what Ballers do–make it rain.
      Steady says to look for DW and []’Anfony to hang around as the “Honest John Broker” and try to give this whole thing legitimacy. The new bunch on BUPIES will didi happy notes, work their magic, hire their own Lil’ General and make a real Darko the face of the franchise.

      Fanatics, Steady says: The Knicks are DEAD. Long live the Knickerbockers!

      Steady blogin but I can run da script. Cool-Mo-Dee, put in da good word when you holla atcha DAWGS! You know what’s good.

      Steady as IT calls on Billy Jean.

  3. O&B and Steady, I am glad you made your comments. Quite frankly I agree. Posting Marbury in this context/condition/state of mind was a difficult decision. On the one hand it is so far out the box and with little positive or apparently redemptive value that it feels like an absolute waste of energy and space. I have some empathy for his apparent inner turmoil.

    On the other hand, it is what it is and although I don’t know what that is, Marbury has voluntarily and intentionally put himself out there for the world to see and evaluate. Marbury will always be part of Knick lore even out of his orange and blue uni. An entire, short era belongs to him and Isiah. Therefore, he is news, not necessarily fit to print — but if “ArrestGates” is the most prominent news story for two weeks, then we no longer have any standards anyway. We just have 24/7 time slots that need to be filled.

    But the bottom line is that for those who want to be in the know (assuming there is something to be known), I would rather give you the chance to see it for yourself than to rely on the common MSM opining.

    (BTW, this reminds me of Statesman’s futile effort long, long ago to tell us that no one could judge Marbury’s state of mind with a professional degree in mental health. I am now offering an on-line course for only $14,000 for nine months. Call me!!!).

    • ‘Lives’,

      2nd in Command as Master of Distortion. I never said no one could not judge Marbury’s state of mind. I said that you were not a credible source to judge Steph. After your evaluation that the Knicks would win the division, Crawful would lead the team, and that other prediction that I won’t mention, your credibility was negative. In fact
      you were challenging Rumsfeld for least credible person at that time,(lol).

      As I recall, I told you that Steph was a manipulator. Also after his loopy interview on the local station you were convinced that Steph was not crazy, but that he found religion, (you probably believe that Creflo or Cashflow as we call him is a prophet, and not in it to profit). In addition you spent 3/4 of last season accussing the Knicks of doing Steph wrong for sending him home, even after he challenged them the previous offseason to start him or else. His BS backfired and KARMA kicked him in the azz. It appears that he has turned to drugs to get him through this crisis, and like most he will find out that drugs, (prescription or illegal) are not the answer.

      A teachable moment.

      Peace & Blessings

      • Does your comment confirm that I am your Vice President, Mr. Distortortionist in Chief? Right out of the pages of Ronald Reagan, once again you contort your mind into a knotted position of delusion so that you can give a revisionist and false portrayal of my position. I’m getting you a seeing eye dawg for Christmas brohman. (LOL.)

  4. Dolan evidently sees the future, especially the forthcoming Knick season, and is hoping to divest Cablevision out of the MSG business as soon as possible. Paying off Anucha Brown Sanders, Isiah and Marbury last year stung Dolan big-time and he can’t explain such bad decisions to the Cablevision stockholders.

    Jimmy D’s loyalty as a Knicks’ fan does not extend
    to waiting for Walsh’s 2010 fantasy team. Given the moribund group Walsh has thus far assembled, season ticket sales for 09-10 will likely plummet along with other MSG revenue concessions–MSG advertizing, food and souvenir sales at tge Garden, etc. Thus, potential investors in the new MSG Inc. must be prepared for quite a long term investment. With Walsh at the Knicks helm, the glacial pace of progress will seem excruciatingly slow. Jimmmy D’s departure, however, should be a positive first step toward a better Knick world.

  5. Today Obama will set an example that should resonate with a couple of our combative, prominent Fanatics, namely Peaceman and African. I am so moved by the President taking time out of his day to mediate the rancor of an unfortunate “House Arrest,” during which both parties (the man with the key and the man with the gun) helped escalate the improper use of State power.

    The President’s example encourages me to offer to share a couple of martini’s, a few daiquiris, and one or two beers with Peaceman and African to help resolve their differences and to negotiate African’s return to the blog in a dignified manner in which no one will criticize his highly questionable support of EatCity Curry.

    If I am denied the opportunity to act Presidential using Peaceman and African as props, I will shift my focus to the Middle East of blog conflicts and bring together KD and Peaceman. Instead of beer, we will commune over a keg of prune juice so everybody can get all their shyte out.


    Yesterday, my wife and I toured the Civil Rights Museum in Birmingham which is situated across from the 16th Street Baptist Church the site of several bombings including the one killing four little girls attending church. It was a wonderful exhibit, but an exhausting return to memories and feelings not too far in the past. It reminded me of the bravery of Americans of many hues, religions and ethnicities as they confronted the intransigence and hatred of those who refused to see Blacks as fellow human beings.

    It also reminded me of the great progress made on the backs of those who dared to risk their lives in the face of state sanctioned brutality. It was not long ago that the vast majority of African-Americans (regardless of socio-economic status lived in absolute fear that confrontations with police could lead to no good end. I was reminded that in the Blacks were removed from their homes in the north and the south only to disappear into death or slave labor. It was common in the South to arrest black men on trumped up charges or misdemeanors and sentence them to hard labor in favor of mining companies in need of cheap labor. (Talk about corporate welfare.)

    It was these sacrifices that allowed the Marburys (and LIVES) of the world the freedom to express themselves and to be compensated for their labor without fear of physical reprisal and imprisonment. Marbury is a fortunate man, who has often recognized and acknowledged his fortune through his own charitable efforts. While it may take us some effort to reconcile his charitable nature with his apparently challenged mental state (or misunderstood motivation — Steady, I too have often shed a tear to some moving music, but it is rarely in front of a mirror and never before a mass audience), there is no denying the connection between Marbury’s freedom to act and the Freedom fighters of the 50’s-70’s.

    Similarly, although Gates has had the great fortune to enter a world of ultimate privilege, he can only be just so isolated from the real world. Many fail to understand, including Gates who faced the “Impossible” Reality of being treated like a black man in America, that the the officer does not need to be racist to be involved in an act with racial overtones or subtleties. Despite the sacrifices of the many (of many backgrounds) race, like leaking water, finds its own trail through our cultural structure. It pops up in floods, as well as trickles, dribs, drabs and puddles. It can do major damage or just be a nuisance for the moment, but race is everpresent (although it is not always the primary force or instigator).

    Our problem, in this era where media blows everything out of proportion is understanding the place of race or racism in creating and solving our challenges and addressing outstanding issues.

    Gates should have known better. Welcome to the real world professor, but the use of State power by a police officer when there is no threat to the public or himself is an absolute abuse of discretion. The problem is that given the history of relations between Black men and the state, it is impossible to believe that a white professor of Gate’s stature would have been arrested around or inside his home.

  6. “Starksforthree” and “Curry being the best big man
    since Shaq” Can kiss what I twist and I don’t mean my wrist!

    Note My Avatar…. soooo true, so true!

  7. Lives, what a great analysis on post #5! Well done.


    Now I just watched only a bit of the Marbury videos so this comment may be premature, but I am not ready to call him “crazy” or “on drugs” (his fitness suggests otherwise). However, he seems to be the freeist athlete in America, and there is something appealing about that. Even in a contract year, he does not give a shit what anyone thinks — and it all seems harmless enough. Then he yells into the camera:

    “you can’t put me in a box!”

    While States might respond “yeah, but you could put him in a straight jacket!”, the liberation that he feels while saying that is probably not something others could attain.
