Well, the Knicks lost to the Celtics earlier this evening, 96-93, which puts Stat, Melo, and their motley gang of invalids in a 2-0 hole with the series headed back to New York.

We're not going to dissect this disconcerting meltdown, although Emeritus did a fine job for NY Mag.

We will, however, direct you to something else Emeritus wrote, from Nov. 2007, which is especially relevant this evening:

Last night, late in K-State's loss to Oregon, Walker was needed on the floor. But he had to go. So he did what he had to do: He pissed in a towel.

"With just seconds left in regulation and K-State lined up to inbound the ball and run a last second play, Bill Walker was overcome with an urge too strong to control. he stepped to the sideline and relieved himself with several towels."

Walker was 0 for 11 from the floor tonight. He, Jared Jeffries, Toney Douglas, Stoudemire's back, and, well, most all of the Knicks, drowned the Knicks tonight.
