It wasn’t the typical night at Madison Square Garden for the Cleveland Cavaliers where they come in, have the Knicks roll over and walk away with a blow out win. The Knicks stood up the The Kang through three quarters but succumbed down the stretch for a 101-104 loss. The Kang tried to bully Kristap Porzingis and rookie Frank Ntilikina, but Enes Kanter stepped in both times to play the enforcer.
This was the “game within the game” of sorts. The show of bravado from Ntilikina and Kanter sent a message to the Cavs that the Knicks were not to be intimidated, and they weren’t. New York held dominated the Cavs through three quarters and then got outscored by 18 points in the fourth quarter. The Cavs connected on nine three pointers to end the fairy tale. Below is what The Kang had to say about Kanter after the game:

I’m The Kang, my wife is the queen, so we’ve got all three covered … We got the win … I’m not gon’ even say that guy’s name again.
The Kang refused to mentioned Kanter’s name, which was a pretty smart move. When you have three chips and the other guy has none then why give him life. To speak Kanter’s name would put him on The Kang’s level without having put the work in.
On Trump And The Global Economy
The GQ cover has also afforded Colin the opportunity to sit on the panel for Trump And The Global Economy Town Hall to be held early next year. Colin hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org. The second installment of Trump And The Global Economy Town Hall took place October 24th in Fort Greene. It Featured Professor Lance Brofman, Coconut Rob (Coconut Rob Smoothies), Wuyi Jacobs (AfroBeats Radio) and Ralph Baker, author of Shock Exchange: How Inner-City Kids From Brooklyn Predicted the Great Recession and the Pain Ahead.
The event was well-received by the community. We parsed through President Trump’s proposed tax plan and [i] how it was pure economic folly and [ii] high net worth individuals could potentially game the system by shifting income around. Apparently, Kansas Coach Bill Self did this when the state of Kansas cut taxes in the past. We discussed the pros and cons of technology on workers and the economy. How will the economy and country prosper under Trump’s leadership vis-a-vis Obama? What’s behind the verbal sparring with black athletes, ESPN’s Jemele Hill and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un?
