The New York Times take pity on their Knicks beat reporter

The New York Times have some very empathetic editors.

One of the world's most read newspapers is looking to give one of their sports journalists a break from watching the New York Knicks due to their atrocious form this season.

After their latest defeat, at the Memphis Grizzlies last night, moved them to 5-32 and it was the final straw for the publication.

An article in today's edition reads:

"So we feel it’s only merciful to give our Knicks beat writer, Scott Cacciola, a break from such woeful basketball. He deserves to see the game played at a higher level. For the next month or so, we would like to point him to some good, quality basketball, wherever it might exist. Any suggestions?

"Maybe there’s another N.B.A. team that warrants his attention, or perhaps a high school or a college squad. For that matter, maybe you know of a strong coed team at your local Y that Scott should write about. Tell us where to send him. Submit your ideas in the comments section."
