Knicks/Magic Game Postponed

See, Marcin Gortat was correct! NYC can’t get anything right. From the Knicks Blog: “Via NY Knicks PR …    Following last night’s Rangers game, during overnight maintenance of Madison Square Garden, which included cleaning asbestos-related materials in the attic above the ceiling, some debris fell into the Arena. Out of an abundance of caution, and after consulting the NBA, we are postponing tonight’s Knicks v. Magic game.  We will be working with the city and independent experts, ATC Associates and GCI Environmental Advisory, to evaluate and determine the most appropriate course of action. As the safety of our customers and employees are our top priority, we will not reopen the Garden until we are absolutely assured the Arena is safe.”

    The same way the Knicks postpone defensive drills in practice.

    This is an obvious cover up; the Knicks were planning to drop 50 pounds of chalk in LeBron’s debut home game.

    Why do you that you begin cleaning the attic out during the season, especially if you know the misc. items in there have asbestos on them. I’m not a health inspector but i believe things like that should be handled asap..

    Hopefully they can clean up the whole city in the given time to change Gortat’s mind.

    Hmmm… Still postponed, it appears. I hope they start the game at like 12 am, that’d be dope.
