Paul is a free agent in 2012. I think the Knicks make a move before that, i.e. next year. I mean, in theory, it would be great to hold the money and then go for Howard or CP3 or Deron Williams (no way he stays with Nets, IMO) but even if you save that money there is no guarantee any of those three make it to 2012 as free agents. And if they do then maybe the Lakers free up cash, or the Celtics, or Howard stays and convinces CP3 to join him, etc.
So I think they make some kind of move for next year.

An amazing comeback today by the Blazers and Brandon Roy. Down 23 with 30 seconds left in the 3rd quarter, and Roy puts them on his shoulders like it was 2008 and he had knees once again.

The Thunder are a dangerous team.
San Antonio is in deep trouble.
The Lakers have no answer for Westbrook.
If they (The Thunder) keep it up, who in the West is going to derail them?

My money is still on Bynum and Gasol. Kendrick Perkins will help but it won't be enough.

I think we're going to see a Heat vs Thunder finals.
Not a good night to be a Lakers, Reds and an Amazing Race Cowboys fan.
Nobody has put up stats like Chris Paul did in a playoff game the way Paul did tonight since Oscar Robertson back in 1962.
The referees have helped OKC quite a lot in this series. Denver got screwed more than once (as have the Pacers as that series should be tied).
Chris Paul is good. Really good.
