Please, Knicks, Sign Lou Amundson. Please.

ORLANDO, FL - MAY 5: Louis Amundson #17 of the Indiana Pacers drives to the basket against the Orlando Magic in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2012 NBA Playoffs on May 5, 2012 at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

The Knicks are still looking for their last couple of players to fill out their roster. One possibility is a tall crazy white dude; another, as it turns out, is a charmingly doofy one. The Knicks are talking with Pacers (and former Suns) center/forward Lou Amundson, and his agent says it's a real possibility. What do you need to know about Lou Amundson? Well, he sort of looks like Taylor Kitsch in John Carter — J.E. Skeets has a regular Lou Amundson Doppleganger feature — he's a relentless rebounder and defender, he rides a bike to every game and he once filled Shaquille O'Neal's truck with packing peanuts. The Knicks can only offer him a minimum contract, of course, and it's possible he might get a larger offer from another team. But we hope not.
