The New York Times is crowdsourcing for a good basketball team for Knicks reporter Scott Cacciola to cover for a while.
He deserves to see the game played at a higher level. For the next month or so, we would like to point him to some good, quality basketball, wherever it might exist. Any suggestions?
They’ll take NBA teams (Memphis Grizzlies and the New York Nets are two of the suggestions in the comments,) or “maybe you know of a strong coed team at your local Y that Scott should write about.”
Here’s what those Y leagues can look forward to if they have a super awful night. From Cacciola’s Monday story:
For the Knicks, futility was the preferred replacement for fluidity, surfacing in plays defined by an almost inexplicable level of ineptitude. There was the instance when Hardaway, trapped along the sideline in a pick-and-roll gone wrong, flung the ball backward over his head as a pair of defenders closed in.
