When considering in the benefits of a substantial up-front payment from the expansion fees (including factoring in the time value of money) and the threat of bubble in relation to team values, it would behoove the owners to reincarnate the Sonics and a second franchise.

Luckily for me my GF knows what a message board is and isn't a dumb ass. Second of all, let's not pretend that the majority of users here, as well as the majority of sports fans are males. I know it's a unisex form of entertainment, but so is Justin Bieber and if I went on a Beiber message board and girls were posting pictures of him without a shirt on I should have enough understanding of the environment and people around to know and respect that the majority of the users want to see Bieber nipples or something.
The first page of the PG thread is always a wall of gifs, and even if I don't find them funny anymore they do add to the celebratory vibe.
No body does keys anymore, and to be honest with you, we don't really need a drawn out analysis because this team has an identity and we generally know what to expect. The Knicks aren't in some state of flux like in the past where we feel an obligation to think like GM's and coaches, and find critical areas of improvement or critiques. Some discussions might be worthwhile but generally we know: Felton takes bad shots, JR is unpredictable, Melo will ISO, Tyson only scores around the basket, Novak doesn't play defense, Amar'e and Shumpert were out and are now adjusting to the team, etc, etc. The only exception is if something exceptional happened like an injury or whatever.
And for the sake of structure a PG thread should have one liners because anything of note to discuss is better off having it's own thread. Such as analyzing Woodson's offensive structures, etc.
First, watch this whole clip from the Oliver Stone movie NIXON ...
Then, read this re-write of the scene you just watched ...
DOLAN ... And now I got the Rockets and that stats geek Morey handing me a bill of forty-five mil, this poison pill deal you both got in cahoots to sign.
I think, Mr. Lin, you're forgetting who put you where you are.
LIN The fans put me where I am. Mike Dâ€™Antoni put me where I am.
Dolan smirks. They all smirk. A dreadful moment.
DOLAN Really? Well, that can be changed.
Dead silence. Lin moves closer to Dolan.
LIN Jimmy, I've learned that sports is the world of hard knocks and hardball negotiation. I learned it the hard way. I don't know if you have. But I tell you what, Jimmy ... If you don't like it, there's always the free-agent market. You can take your money out into the open, see who you can get to lead Melo and Amarâ€™e to the promised land ... How about it, Jim? Are you willing to do that? Give your team over to some puffy lottery retread like Raymond Felton?
Lin is right in Dolan's face now.
LIN (CONT'D) Because if you're uncomfortable with the Houston Rockets up your ass, try the New York Post ...
DOLAN Well, goddamn. Are you threatening me, Jeremy?
LIN (softly) Overnight superstars, here and overseas, with â€śinsanityâ€ť in their moniker, don't threaten. They don't have to. (then) Good day, gentlemen.
As he walks out with Landry Fields, there is a stone silence.
