NEW YORK KNICKS’ STATE OF THE MOTHER FU*KING UNION

image[A CooleyHigh Joint.  Did you think we ignored this powerful LAP (long ass post)? Naaaw, we were just waiting for the right time to elevate it for R&R. As usual, Cooley’s got a dream of his own and a powerfully edgy but positive view of his fave BBall team.  Let him know what you think.  Are you buying his dream? Let’s Go Knicks.]

MONEY, MONEY, MONEY. IF IT DON’T MAKE DOLLARS IT DON’T MAKE SENSE…..

To millions of fans across the country, professional sports instills a sense of civic pride and identity. They provide a common ground for all parts of a community: black and white, old and young, rich and poor, urban and suburban.

This combination of emotion, history and entertainment makes sports a business unlike any other (Mass consumption & Multiple impressions is the name of that Flava). The suave people of New York City don’t congregate around the television or fill OUR HOUSE, or Citifield, The New Yankee Stadium, or Arthur Ashe’s Stadium, to watch the Financial Sector make transactions at Prime Time; Nor do Peeps pulling for the DEADSKINS from the District gather in great numbers to watch the Supreme Court. But rooting for our BELOVED KNICKS when they play the Boston Celtics is a natural communal activity (In OUR HOUSE, on MSG, bars, feeds beaming across state lines, even Oceans…).

This hypnotic connection between cities, fans and home-town teams is what makes it so difficult to see those teams PIMPED by conglomerates like the ultimate packaged good.

Every Fanatic posting on the thread knows Cablevision is one of the nation’s leading Media & Entertainment companies. Tapped into somewhere near a third of NYC Metro Area populace and beyond (this site is Prima Facia Evidence of their reach with the majority of fanatics posting from outside the zone; consuming their product for intel and providing your own intel as they data mine the hell out hooked BBALL junkies like US FANATICS; links pasted all over the thread acting as a distribution channel for F**KING Free; You remember how OUR TOP DAWG couldn’t even get a press pass this summer–What the F**K; purchases of merchandise; YOU KNOW YOU MOFOS HAVE A KNICK JERSEY HANGING IN YOUR CLOSET;) with their cadre of services on a myriad of platforms.

GENTS, IF IT DON”T MAKE MONEY IT DON”T MAKE SENSE… ARE YOU WITH ME SO FAR….

Now you my Brother from another Mother kicked me up to the PREMIER SUITE because my retort supplied a rosy proposition and assessment of OUR BELOVED KNICKS (KFFL). I spit smack with the best, but the GAME is fluid and we got to get down to the bear bone facts. The Lil General didn’t bolt from the bargaining table involving the REFS because he working from a position of weakness. Rather from a position of protecting the Profit Margin under the guise of hanging on to BRAND simultaneously. One loose Cannon who GAMED the system with the NBA’s major partner the Gambling Complex made this clear cost saving move possible. He’s got a group of chips that don’t really define the PACKAGED GOODS, and they slipped up because they didn’t police their own, and Mass Consumers are ambivalent about the official any GOT DAMN way… The MOFOS every Fan loves to hate. SO FU*K THEM! And, Lil general will come out smelling like a rose and this shall pass. The move indicates that Lil General has done his DUE DILIGENCE; he’s mined the data, and common sense prevails. The sport is going to see a flattening of the margins if they can contain cost. Got too. My astute BRUDDER that moves the Instruments with great flair, said it earlier, saturation has reared its ugly head, and in this current economic matrix being OVEREXPOSED has its perils….

NOW WHAT THE HELL DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH TURTLE WAX WASLH AND THE COMPOSITION OF OUR BELOVED KNICKS…YOU DAWGS STOP YELIING IN THE FANATIC CHAMBER, CAUSE THAT’S SOME IGNORANT SHYTE…LOL LOL LOL GET TO THE POINT MOFO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With Cablevision’s decision to spin-off MSG and its assets. THE SHEETS GOT TO MEET FANATICS. MSG has been sniffing around the District and other Metropolitan areas looking for land or prospective rehab facilities to create NEW ENTERTAINMENT SHOPS. What data made MSG ever consider to expand beyond the Apple. MOFOS LIKE US! The Consumption template says it is worth the risk. LIL General moved TURTLE WAX WALSH back to his origins, and the FUN, RUN AND GUN Coach, so they could run the LOAD, RINSE, SPIN STRATEGY so we POINT TO A SAVIOUR, that will keep US consuming whether by HOLDING OUT HOPE or by SHEAR ANGER AND FAN DISGUST. This a PACKAGED GOOD gents and our consumption is EMOTIONAL (Our Fanatics Posts, PRIMA FACIA EVIDENCE). The mere ILLUSION of BRON, WADE, MAMBA, or ANYBODY donning a KNICK UNI does the TRICK, don’t matter YOU GOT TO BELIEVE and you do that by SIMPLY DOING NOTHING. I Think they call it being PRUDENT. Especially when you’ve been advised you WILL WEAR A CEMENT SUIT AND END UP IN THE EAST RIVER IF YOU DON’T PLAY THIS HAND AS YOU’VE BEEN TOLD. This is Organized Business Baby… Don’t get it twisted Officials, Management that is not vested, and the tremendous product itself DON”T MEAN SHYTE. They’re nothing but a bunch of over paid punks Black, White, European, Asian, Hispanic, making THE SHORT END OF THE CHEDDAR IN THIS EQUATION AND THINK THEIR THE DEFINITION OF OPULENCE. That SHYTE is laughable!

You don’t waste cash on retreads, you don’t make moves for BULLSHYTE POINT GUARDS NAMED SESSIONS, and you don’t pay DLEE OR N8 a RAISE for what they’ve given you in return. YOU SELL THE DREAM FANATICS. It might seem trite, probably more ESOTERIC, but the SHYTE WORKS. ASK BARRY, THE POTUS!

SORRY! There will be no moves FANATICS cause YOU NEED THAT DISTRACTION, YOU WANT THAT DISTRACTION, AND IN THE END YOU DON’T CARE WHAT THEY DO YOU’RE ADDICTED TO THAT DISTRACTION… IF they make a deal! It is because it MAKES THE SHEETS MEET. IF IT DON”T MAKE MONEY IT DON”T MAKE SENSE….

So FANATICS, I prefer to SELL MY OWN MOTHER FUCKING DREAM, and that is we can win with what we got. I’m DREAMING OF career seasons for DARKO, ECURRY, BIG AL, GALLO and CREW, cause it makes me FEEL GOOD cause I AM A MOTHER FUNCIING JUNKIE LIKE THE REST OF YOU, and in a few weeks I’LL NEED MY FIX LIKE ANY OTHER GOOD KNICK/FANATIC JUNKIE WOULD. I like millions and millions of other people got that have my PACKAGED GOOD. Man I got so many JONES and NEEDLE MARKS (Yankees, Giants, Lakers, Tiger, Serena and Venus, Theatre, Museums, Movies, Dining Out, and the list goess on and on…Remind me to never let you mofos see my feet, cause that’s my secret lever for pleasure.) CAUSE IF IT DON”T MAKE MONEY IT DON”T MAKE SENSE…

HOPEFULLY FOLKS WILL CONTINUE TO BUY MY PACKAGE GOODS SO I CAN KEEP UP MY HABITS…. A Brother got to stay on his grind!

Repeat: IF IT DON’T MAKE MONEY, IT DON’T MAKE SENSE!

God Bless KnickAmerica and God Bless the New York Knicks!

  1. IF IT DON’T MAKE MONEY, IT DON’T MAKE SENSE!

    Yeah, Mr. Kool, YES!A man and his message,preach on Teach!You put a smile on my face with your asstuativity!We are all junkies to a dream corrupted by the filthy lucremeisters of the world.What is more valuable than a dream?How do you put a price on it?Act like you invented it and it belongs to you!

    “Everything that is worth seeing in this world, you see with your heart, not your eyes….The Fox to the Little Prince

    Well now, suppose you could put a price on dreams, hopes, desires?You gonna be a very rich man.The commodities market controls the price of rice, pork and oil,supposedly by supply and demand.Who controls the price of dreams?The same people who control the price of bullshyte.Ask yourself why do you love the game, the Knicks?

    IF IT MAKES ANY SENSE, IT SHOULDN”T MAKE MONEY!

    What price do you put on love, friendship, fellowship, kindness, sacrifice?What is the cost of a sunrise, a sunset, a last bucket in a tough game and the respect of an opponent, win or lose?

    I sometimes wish the Knicks were named after someone besides the Native American exterminating, slave trading for profit only Dutch Knickabockers.Maybe the NY Dreamers, or the Hopes, something that made some kind of sense.Yeah, I know we live in the real world and you need “chedda” to live.But we don’t have to bend over while being fycked.Greed seems to drive everything nowadays.Not true, just a distraction to keep you from the truth.When your time comes, and you’re child asks for your blessing, will you say, “Make more money, so you can have more things!” or “try to dream and share it with those you love.”[ ]ream on Nicks’ fans.(No more Knicks bullshyte).Dream some D while your at it!

    Oh yeah, God Bless Only KnickAmerica and God Bless Only the New York Knicks!Right Chris?Free Plax/LGK

      Co-sign wholeheartedly especially with the bit on the Dutch and any and all imperialist, bigots, racist etc!

      Sometimes a slave to a tunnel vision can also make one penny wise and pound foolish!

  3. Cooley:

    No argument that making money makes sense, but putting more fans in the seats who want to watch a competitive team also makes money as does the commensurate advertising revenue earned from TV and radio ads, along with the franchise concessions who sell team jerseys, hats and t-shirts, and food vendors who sell hot-dogs, beer, soda, popcorn, etc. Making the playoffs also adds further revenue to the season’s bottom line. All of the above sales could mean as much if not more money than the salary savings Walsh parsimoniously hoarded to be No 1 in cap space.

    We further disagree on the value of Ramon Sessions whom Walsh passed on, despite his coach’s known desire to acquire this underrated player. Sessions’ contract at $4 million per year for four years would not have seriously impacted the cap space needed to acquire Lebron James or some other elite star in 2010. To attain additional elited player, both Jeffries and Curry have to come off the books in 2011 and 2012 respectively. In the interim, the Knicks with Sessions would have had a better chance to make the playoffs; and Sessions (being only 23) would be readily tradeable if a top-rated point guard (Chris Paul or Deron Williams) became available in either 2011 or 2012.

    For this season, the Knicks can only hope Duhon stays healthy, that N8 can be more effective at the point than in the past, or that Tony Douglas has the skills and ability to develop faster than anyone anticipates. Right now the 15th spot is open, so we get to watch either Sun Yue, Warren Carter or Gregg Pruit ride the bench, whereas we could have watched Sessions help lead the team to the playoffs, and MSG could have made as much if not more money, which to me makes more sense.

      Truer words couldn’t be said regarding the alternative to the 2010 Cap Space Plan Cult’s penny pinching ways!

  4. Good evening Fanatics! TMAN, one of my Favorite Brother Posters from another Mother. How can I counter your post when you come up with words like Asstuativity…ROFLMAO

    I’ll just leave you with a couple of quotes that shape my thinking and I’ll let the chips fall where ther may.

    The men who make NBA rosters in my opinion are Extraordinary Athletes or Tacticiansof the game og BBALL…So I believe this to be true:

    “Extraordinary people survive under the most terrible circumstances and they become more extraordinary because of it.”

    I am also a believer in the Power of Positive Thinking. And, I am a Strong Advocate of People’s ability to adjust their Attitudes for the better. Determining their Altitude and Gratitude. So I also believe the following:

    “The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes.”

    In closing, I have always been a Big Fleetwood Mac Fan and Have had the opportunity to hang out with and get to the know the Witch Stevie Nicks…One Cool and Unusual BABE..
    And, all I choose to do is DREAM MY DREAM OF OUR BELOVED KNICKS… So I leave you with her lyrics to provide some insight into my NEW YORK KNICKS DREAM…

    “Now here you go again
    You say you want your freedom
    Well who am I to keep you down
    Its only right that you should
    Play the way you feel it
    But listen carefully to the sound
    Of your loneliness
    Like a heartbeat.. drives you mad
    In the stillness of remembering what you had
    And what you lost…
    And what you had…
    And what you lost

    Thunder only happens when its raining
    Players only love you when theyre playing
    Say… women… they will come and they will go
    When the rain washes you clean… youll know

    Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
    I keep my visions to myself
    Its only me
    Who wants to wrap around your dreams and…
    Have you any dreams youd like to sell?
    Dreams of loneliness…
    Like a heartbeat… drives you mad…
    In the stillness of remembering what you had…
    And what you lost…
    And what you had…
    And what you lost

    Thunder only happens when its raining
    Players only love you when theyre playing
    Say… women… they will come and they will go
    When the rain washes you clean… youll know”

    Headed back to the USA in the AM, so you Fanatics have a great Tuesday, cause I’m hoping my DREAMS COME TRUE…And tomoorw they BEGIN!

    ONE LOVE!

    Keep it CRACKIN!

      • information is not knowledge
        knowledge is not wisdom
        wisdom is not truth
        truth is not beauty
        beauty is not love
        love is not music
        music is the best
