Knicked In Time

The problems keep mounting for the New York Knicks. On draft night, the Knicks acquired yet another [overpaid, egotistical “superstar];” their three-headed monster of Stephon Marbury, Eddie Curry and Zach Randolph couldn’t guard a parked car; and a little more than one week ago, the archrival Boston Celtics became the [odds-on favorite](http://www.boston.com/sports/basketball/celtics/articles/2007/07/31/move_is_just_the_ticket_for_once_proud_team/) to win the Eastern Conference. Now, they have to fight the law in addition to their own ineptitude.


Early this morning, Knicks forward Randolph Morris was [arrested in Lexington, Kentucky] and charged with reckless driving. The 6-foot-11, 260-pound former UK star, who signed with New York in March just days after the Wildcats were eliminated from the NCAA tournament, was arrested at 3:10 a.m. and released on $100 bond. He’s got a court appearance scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.


But this could actually help Morris make the team because now he and head coach Isiah Thomas have something to bond over. Thomas is currently [fighting his own legal troubles]: In September, a trial will begin to determine if he sexually harassed ex-Knicks senior vice president Anucha Browne Sanders. Kudos to Morris for following his coach’s lead and finding a topic through which they could communicate.
