The NBA regular season is set to start on Christmas Day, but in the meantime, we’ll continue to simulate the Knicks season (based on the original 2011–12 schedule) on PlayStation 3, and post the results here as if they were actual games. So! Look who’s back at .500, y’all! The Fake Knicks — the ones starting to look unfamiliar, with only six or seven guys on the roster who will really be here this year — smacked around the Indiana Pacers at Conseco Fieldhouse 102-78. They’re now back at the .500 mark for the first time since … well, we’ll have to check Faux-Knicks Basketball Reference for that one. Carmelo had 42. This is fun. Though we’ll confess, we were kind of cheering for Roy Hibbert, solely because of Parks and Recreation. Next game: Thursday night at home against Philadelphia.
As always, here’s a short video from each game, shot off our television, using our iPhone. You can almost tell how nice Conseco is.
