David Letterman said it better than us last week: “Tiger Woods announced he would be taking a leave from the sport—didn’t the Knicks already do that?” You can at least come out and root for the forwards: Indiana’s David Granger is averaging around 24 points a game as we go to press, and the Knicks’ Danilo Gallinari is averaging near 14.1 points a game. Try yelling, “Avanti!” to Gallinari, an Italian who is the Knicks’ youngest player at 21. Seriously, this might be a good time to get tickets. Score them on the rebound on StubHub, starting as low as $15 with some club seating available at $140 a ticket.
