It is with great pleasure – and a bit of sorrow – that I am able to share with you news that The Journal News has hired the esteemed Howard Megdal to continue its coverage of your. New. York. Knicks. As many of you already know, I am relocating to North Carolina, and as such, I must abdicate the throne. Rest assured, however, that this blog will not miss a beat in my absence. Howard is a fantastic writer, possessing a rare combination of instinct and dedication that makes him a must read for any sports fan. Be sure to follow him on Twitter!
On a personal note, I want to thank my Sports Editor, Sean Mayer, who took a chance on a frustrated lawyer when no one else would. He saw something in me – what that was, I still have no idea – and it is largely because of his faith that I was able to expand my horizons beyond the limits of what I thought was possible. It is my sincere intention to continue writing about sports (more to come on that front shortly, I promise), but no matter what I do or where I go, I will always cherish the memories of covering the Knicks, and interacting with and learning from all of you, the fans.
