Look Out Below!

On Tuesday, the Knicks vs. Magic game at Madison Square Garden was postponed because of concern from some asbestos related materials. The cancellation was the first in 14 years at the Garden.

MSG is currently undergoing a $775 million renovation, which includes the cleaning of asbestos-related material from the attic. During this process some dust and debris fell into the arena causing the postponement.

This brings back memories of the 1998 baseball season when the Yankees were forced to play a game at the home of the Mets, Shea Stadium, after a beam fell at Yankee Stadium. The same home away from home situation may occur with the Knicks, as they have contacted the home of the Nets, the Prudential Center, as a fallback if the Garden isn’t ready for Friday.

The Knicks next game is Friday when John Wall and the Wizards visit the Garden…or the Rock. Wall will try to follow up his terrific performance Tuesday against the Sixers when he was one steal shy of a triple double (29 points, 13 assists, 9 steals). I don’t know what was better though, his stat line against Philly or his Dougie’ing when he was introduced during the starting lineups.
