First of all, MSG, all of these have to go. Melo was not born in MSG. He was born in Brooklyn and moved to Baltimore when he was 8, so he isn't coming home. So stop with that one.

Then there's the Landry Fields "Not expected" Promo. I don't mind hyperbole. I don't mind theatrics. I don't mind a little extra drama. But, c'mon. Here is what Landry was not expected to do according to the commercial: Not expected to win a starting job, be rookie of the month twice, lead all guards in rebounding, take a page from Jordan's playbook, start in the rookie challenge, be in the right place at the right time, be untouchable, hold your own against childhood idol, bring MSG to feet.

All of these irk me, but the one that gets me is hold your own against childhood idol. When this is said, the viewer sees Kobe sizing up Landry off the dribble. And it brings all kinds of warm feelings to the Knick fans. They think yay!! Landry was able to play Kobe straight up. Well, which game was Landry able to hold his own against Kobe? Was it on 2/11/11? Landry shot 2-6 for 6 points with 5 rebounds. Kobe shot 12-17 for 33 points and 10 rebounds. So it must not have been that one. Must have been on 1/9/11, right? Well Landry was 5-10 for 12 points and 8 rebounds. Kobe was 10-28 for 27 points and 10 rebounds. So Kobe scored an average of 30 points this season when playing the Knicks with 10 rebounds. But, if Landry held his own, the Knicks probably won the games anyway, right? Turns out they didn't. They lost the first one by 22 points. The second they lost by 17.

But, pat him on the back. He held his own.

Were they still running those Landry Fields spots after he went in the tank?
