Sunday 05/11 (Very) Quickie

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! (Especially mine and my baby-mama. Do you think Tom Brady and Matt Leinart are doing anything for their kids' mamas? Doubt it.)

Guess what: The Celtics still can't win on the road...

The Magic missed their best (and last?) opportunity to stun the Pistons...

Knicks hire Mike D'Antoni: Doesn't matter how much it cost, this is the best possible coachin-search outcome for the Knicks, importing a proven (and recently proven) big winner who -- more importantly -- has a defined (and exciting) style to bring to the team.

I think it is good news for David Lee, who should thrive, and bad news for Eddy Curry, who won't. (Curry was already on the hot seat for being Isiah's biggest import with new management in town.)

Next step: The Knicks REALLY need to win the draft lottery, so they can grab Derrick Rose. I think a top-notch PG is a must for D'Antoni's system, and it's not like the Knicks have the cap room to bring in Jose Calderon (unless Calderon is serious that he would play for less money if he was guaranteed to start, a guarantee I'm sure D'Antoni would be sure to give him).

Anyway, all this rambling is the point: D'Antoni instantly brings a new excitement to the Knicks. I suggest all Knicks fans read Jack McCallum's book "7 Seconds or Less."

MLB: The Marlins have won 6 in a row, and the new center of power in baseball is Florida (a little further north, Scott Kazmir got his first win of the season for the Rays, at Joe Saunders' expense)... Maddux wins No. 350... Dice-K is 6-0 and Kevin Youkilis has 8 HR... Tim Lincecum is pretty awesome right now... Fantasy Stud: Grady Sizemore (2 HR, 5 RBI, 3 R in what will likely be his most productive game of the season)... Speaking of baseball in Florida, the Marlins are close to locking up franchise star Hanley Ramirez for the long-term.
