Just heard from the lips of Fox 5’s Will Thomas:

“Yet another setback for the New York Nits…”

He meant to say “New York Knicks,” but “Nits” is not far off from the actual state of said team: they’re so pathetic as to be inconsequential in the NBA universe. The only role they can play is spoiler, given their pathetic quality of play, sub-standard player ethics, etc.

In other random NBA funnies: the Utah Jazz appeared (in “body” only) on tonight’s superb holiday episode of The Simpsons.
