playoff boomlet

Oklahoma City, City of Lights

We are glad no one asked Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni if he wished he were coaching the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, because we suspect it would have been difficult for him to lie. D'Antoni was clearly salivating at the "length" and talent of the Thunder, who wiped out the Knicks 106–88. (Afterward, D'Antoni limited himself to an awesome "we'll just throw this one down the toilet and move on" quote.) The Thunder are exactly the type of team D'Antoni would love to coach, even though they're in Oklahoma City. Seriously, watch his press conference: The man has Thunder Envy. The loss dropped the Knicks' playoff odds to 46.4 percent, still good enough for eighth in the conference, but just barely.
