Crappy Knicks-Lakers Game Pulled for Chris Paul’s Bowling Tournament

ESPN was slated to air a daytime disaster between the Knicks and Lakers on Super Bowl Sunday, but according to the NY Post, the game has been axed…for a Chris Paul bowling tournament:

A matinee clash with the Lakers Super Bowl Sunday on ESPN was pulled by the network — not for another NBA showdown — but for a celebrity bowling event, an NBA source told The Post.
The game being yanked from the network was announced Wednesday night — marking the seventh ESPN/ABC game that has been yanked from the 7-36 Knicks.

As you can see, the worldwide leader is biting the bullet and going with “boring” instead of “godawful.”
