Get Ur Knick On

Not sure if people have had the chance to read Jeff Coplon's masterful take on the Knickerbocker Fiasco, but it manages to eclipse Ben McGrath's recent Lenny Dykstra profile in the New Yorker as the most ceaselessly entertaining piece of sportswriting I've read this year. I actually went scouring YouTube looking for a clip of the Randolph-Troy Murphy incident that Coplon describes but couldn't find one. I did, however, stumble upon this, which is quite honestly even better:

Note that the shot clock has a solid 7 seconds on it when he lets it fly, and it's a three-point game... I mean, this is seriously one of the most brazenly "I-don't-give-a-fuck" plays I've ever seen a professional basketball player make. Honestly, this might be my favorite non-Celtics-related highlight of the 2007-2008 NBA season.
