it's especially offensive because they could have just made it out of linseeds.

i wasn't offended by the ice cream flavor. fortune cookies are a western culture thing anyways. but i'll say this, how would the black community take it if ben & jerry's name an ice cream after a black celebrity and it was watermelon-kool aid-grape soda flavored?

Lin watch: 19 pts, 5 rebs, 13 assists, 1 STL, 1 TO

Knicks beat Cavs.

Nice performance against Irving.

Knicks bench looking GOOD too... Novak was on fire again.

Looking at the box score I noticed the Knicks were down 16 with Novak playing only two minutes in the first half. He's got a story that's getting missed.

nothing is missed.....the fans were chanting WE WANT NOVAK and Novak got the post game interview as well.

The Knicks really lucked out with Shumpert, the kid can play....but the night belongs to Novak.

watching the game, the defense in the first half was horrible. they allowed the cavs to have their highest output of one half this season with 61. knicks scored 49 themselves so the offense was good.
the knicks were getting killed by the cavs pick and roll believe it or not....they would set a screen on lin and amare wouldn't hedge at all and can't defend something thats so elementary it was really frustrating to watch. jefferies subbed in for him and they went on their run to tie the game. then the rest of the subs came in and went up 10+ winning the game. their defense tightened up allowing 40 in the 2nd half.

Amare's been so useless for them... they're almost better off going with Novak/Jeffries in his place. At least Novak gives you the 3s and Jeffries gives you the D.

ya, i agree and its not like novak is a complete disadvantage on D either. from what i've seen so far he's decent. and his shooting can save the knicks on some nights and last night was one of them
