Not like he could do any worse....

P. Diddy wants Knicks next
NEW YORK (Billboard) -- Sean "P. Diddy" Combs wants to purchase the New York Knicks.

The hip-hop/fashion mogul and devout fan of New York's National Basketball Association (NBA) franchise proclaimed his interest during an appearance Tuesday on Howard Stern's syndicated morning radio show.

"I think I could do a good job," Combs said, admitting that his efforts to engage in talks with the team's current ownership have to this point been fruitless. "I'm publicly puttin' it out there, because they're not taking my calls.

"I think they need some new blood up in there... I'm not saying let's get rid of the owners, I'm saying put me down. Put me in the game... Because it's not going down right now."

His desire stems from the team's poor performance over the past several years. The Knicks finished the 2002-2003 season with a losing record. "I wanna make sure we are gonna win," Combs said.

During the interview, Combs criticized the team's personnel decisions. "We're making rush decisions," he said. "I think we need a team that also reflects the spirit of the city. We need an aggressive, fast team that knows how to run."

When contacted, a representative for the Knicks had no comment on Combs' comments.

Funny how when the Knicks in the 90's were turning basketball into uglyball, the Knick fans weren't complaining.
On the bright side, if he buys the team, its yet another reason for me to hope the Knicks go 0-82 every season.

Yeah, he could purchase the team and then continue his chronic pattern of taking credit for the talent and hard work of others, and none of the blame.

Given Diddy's love of co-opting the 1970's, maybe Walt Frazier and Bill Bradley still have some gas in the tank.



All right, I'm enjoying Rhyno's "man-beast" gimmick: He keeps his hair long, wears full-body wrestling tights with a big "R" on the back and uses the "Rhino Gore" as his finishing move. Can't you imagine him watching the Discovery Channel one day while tossing around possible gimmicks and having one of those "Hey, wait a second!" epiphanies during a rhino segment?

To spruce things up, the WWF should give Undertaker and Kane last names -- like Undertaker and Kane O'Brien, the O'Brien Brothers -- just for comedy's sake. Hopefully the door's still open.

RVD is approaching the always-exciting "The crowd loves him, but he's not getting a major push yet" phase which helps makes wrestling so much fun. It only happens once every few years -- Stone Cold in '96, The Rock in '98, Shawn Michaels in '93 and so on. -- ESPN's Bill Simmons back in 2001

I don't get it; how would this help ol' P-Diddy? Did the Knicks cut a record that he could sample and go "Yeah, uh-huh" over to generate another instant single?
