For every team he’s played for, I can clearly picture in my mind Doug McDermott wearing the jersey for that team. Except for the Knicks. I was looking at basketball-reference and was shocked. Did he really play for them? Was I not paying attention? Did I block it all out of my mind? I must have made vids for some of his games with them, but I seriously can’t remember anything he did while in New York.
Okay, wait, nevermind, something just came back to me, a dim memory of him doing a pretty sick reverse dunk while Clyde Frazier says something about a “master blaster”. That’s how I know it was with the Knicks and not like the Mavericks or Thunder. That was a pretty good dunk, and I’m hoping that that will trigger some more repressed memories to come flooding out… nope. That’s it. That’s all I can retrieve from my fragmented and horribly-optimized mental database of NBA happenings.
The obvious solution to this “problem” (not really a problem because who wants to think MORE about the Knicks?) would be to stick my head in the industrial-strength double-microwave that I usually use to achieve perfect Hot Pocket temperature and see if the radiation triggers something, but it’s actually in use right now on a very important project. Very important, and very top secret. You will know more when the time is right.
Another solution would be to just go into my Archivium, retrieve all the relevant VHS tapes, watch them, and remember all the fun buckets McDermott hit with the Knicks. But where’s the fun in that?
