The NBA foisted the flaming turd better known as the New York Knicks upon Merry Ol’ England today, and let’s just say they aren’t having a jolly good time across The Pond. The Knicks’ opponent for tonight’s game at London’s O2 Arena is the fair-to-middlin’ Milwaukee Bucks, who look downright terrifying against a team full of castoffs and D-League scrubs. The score at halftime is 56-37, and it doesn’t even feel that close. I guess the good news for the Knicks is that Carmelo Anthony is back and not sucking (17 points at halftime, even though this happened), but that’s about where it ends.

We have no idea what’s in store for the second half, but if you’re like me and have things to do on a Thursday at 1:30 in the afternoon, you probably won’t miss much. Also, these guys are probably all “WTF is this???”
