The Avengers weren’t very well known for their past times. Most of the spare moments you had were spent researching or training. But sometimes Steve would see the boredom on everyone’s faces and would decide to switch some stuff up a bit.

It was Tuesday which meant everyone was in the tower for sparring practice and a meeting later. You were all sitting in the common room to get your new sparring partners when Steve walked in with two red flags in hand.

“Alright everyone, time to shake things up a bit because we are going to try a new type of training.”

“I hope it involves the words do and nothing.” Tony piped up from where he was sitting.

[At Madison Square Garden, Tony and Steve are watching the game. There’s cheering, but Tony seems distracted.]

Steve: Great game, huh?

Tony: Uh huh, uh huh… [seems distracted]

Steve: Why do you keep looking at the screen?

Tony: I’m not. I’m praying. [looking up] Please let the Knicks win… Thank you Thor! [Steve is standing up] Where… where are you going?

Steve: Going go to the bathroom.

Tony: Well, I think you should wait.

Steve: Why?

Tony: Well, if you don’t… if you don’t hold it in, you don’t get all the nutrients.

Announcer: Knicks fans, please turn your attention to the big screen on the scoreboard. Someone has a special question to ask.

[Displayed on the screen is: “Steve will you marry me?” and then we see Tony and Steve on the screen. Tony kneels in front of Steve.]

Tony: Steve Rogers… will you marry me?

[Steve looks bewildered]

Announcer: Get a load of this… Iron Man proposing to Captain America. Guess we know who wears the pants in that family.

[People are laughing, while Steve still seems bewildered]

Tony: That’s not very enlightened!

[There’s booing around them, Steve sinks in his chair, holding his hand in above his eyes, hoping no-one would recognize him.]

Tony: Hey, hey! [shouting] Boo us? Boo you!

HIYA! I thought I'd send through a quick prompt for the 100 s4 celebration countdown, if you get around to it :) Could you do Bellamy and Clarke sitting next to each other at some kind of sporting match, both passionately supporting opposite teams, please?? THANK YOU (and get hyped for s4) :)

A|N: Y’all, I have to preface this by saying that I know nothing about sports. When I was writing this, I literally turned to my friend and was like, “Give me two sports team names!” and here we are, so. Apologizing for any inaccuracies in advance!

also: I added a kiss cam in here because what is a sports game without a cute kiss cam moment??

At this point, she’s pretty sure he’s doing it just to spite her.

“You’re kidding,” Clarke groans, when the enormous foam finger he’s toting smacks her right in the face. “Seriously, Bell? Up until last week, you had no idea who the Bulls were.”

He glances over at her, smug, before reaching over to knock her own Knicks hat out of place. “That’s a blatant lie, considering I’ve been an avid supporter of the Bulls since they kicked the Knicks ass in the last match.”

She rolls her eyes at that, swiping at the plate of nachos balanced delicately against his arm. “Actually, the Knicks won with a staggering 104 to 89 last match.”

“Ah,” he goes, faltering slightly. Then, as if taking strength from the fact that he’s surrounded by a thousand others dressed exactly like him, he continues, “Well, that was a fluke. So.”

“Oh, my god!” she hisses, letting her hands fall against her thighs with a loud smack. “Will you just stop, already? I said I was sorry!”

That pulls a scowl out of him, lips twisting into a stubborn pout. “No. Not until you take it back.”

It, she supposes, refers to the one time she had laughed (a little!) derisively when Bellamy had mentioned something along the lines of watching the occasional basketball match to unwind. The whole conversation had been a little hard to believe- considering she was pretty sure that he had only said it to impress a girl at the sports bar, and that she had actually witnessed him falling asleep during one of Miller’s many hockey matches.

Look, this is Bellamy they’re talking about, okay? She’s seen him actually get teary eyed over a documentary on the Byzantine empire. A bunch of sweaty guys dribbling a ball around is hardly going to hold his interest.

Rucas - Kiss Cam Conundrum

So, I saw this post yesterday, and @jenn0bi tagged a couple very talented (way more talented than me) writers that they should write a one shot based on the gif-set with Rucas, but I got excited and wrote it. Hopefully this isn’t awful. Also this is an AU where Rucas still haven’t gotten together and they’re seniors in high school.

“Congratulations, Lucas Friar! You have just won three tickets to the Knicks game next weekend,” the radio host’s voice bellowed through the phone.

“Thank you so much, sir! I really appreciate it!” Lucas said with a smile. He had been calling the radio station for three hours in hopes of winning Knicks tickets. He even skipped school to make sure he didn’t miss any opportunities. Luckily, his hard work was worth it. Now the problem was having the courage to ask Riley to the game. He obviously knew she was a big fan from her rant back in the eighth grade. He’s been wishing ever since then that they could be together, but something always got in the way. It was either timing, conflicts with other people, or something else out of their control. Lucas thought the game would be the perfect chance to start the next step in their relationship.

“Hey, Riley!” Lucas said as he stepped through Riley’s bay window. They were seniors in high school and that habit still hadn’t gone away.

“Hey! I just saw your text and my excitement is at all-time high. What’s the big news?” Riley said as she skipped over to the bay window.

“Well, I really hope you don’t have any plans next weekend, because I just won some Knicks tickets!” Lucas shouted pulling out the tickets. He picked them up on the way over knowing the physical evidence would add to the effect of his announcement. But Riley didn’t give the reaction he was expecting. She was frowning.

“What’s wrong?” Lucas asked as worry came over his face. He was preparing himself for lots of screaming and jumping up and down, not frowning.

“I actually do have plans, Lucas. Charlie asked me to go get dinner with him. And I’ve hurt him so many times in the past. I don’t think I can cancel on him this time.” Riley said with a frown. Riley wanted to go to the game more than anything, but she couldn’t hurt Charlie. He was so sweet to her and she couldn’t put him down. Lucas knew this, so the next sentence left his mouth very reluctantly.

“He can come, too. I won three tickets.” Lucas said with a sigh. So much for starting the next step in their relationship.

“Really? Thank you so much, Lucas!” Riley shrieked and jumped into Lucas’ arms. Suddenly, inviting Charlie felt like it was worth it.

I’ve had some time to think about the Carmelo trade and all the reasons why it’s not good for the Knicks….

First. Let’s just address the fact that in 6 years Carmelo pretty much accomplished nothing more than a single playoffs series win for the Knicks. Actually, his role on the Knicks seemed more suited for off court drama, that kept the media occupied with the team and whether or not he was getting traded. 

I hate to see things end this way. Any Knicks fans should. Makes me think the Denver trade never should’ve happened. Maybe the Knicks would’ve been better off without Carmelo, who knows?

As a Carmelo fan I can’t complain though. 

If we’re talking individual basketball accomplishments, (when healthy) he was an amazing player for the Knicks. He did win a scoring title, had a legendary 62 point game, and provided enough clutch buzzer beater game winning shots to satisfy any basketball fan. Even though the New York media would make it seem other wise, the city loved him.

If not wins, Melo delivered a lot of excitement to a team that honestly has been just as bad as they’ve been boring to watch over the past decade. He made basketball relevant again in the “mecca”. The basketball fans all over the city deserved to cheer for a player like him nightly. It had been too long. Before Carmelo, New York hadn’t had a superstar caliber player since Ewing who ironically got traded away in 2000, a move which is now regarded as one of the Knicks worst trades.

Well, looks like history just repeated itself. 

Although it’s early, trading Carmelo earlier today will join Ewing on that list of players who never should’ve been traded. This is, of course considering what the Knicks got in return: 

A future 2nd round pick, a player they really don’t need (Enes Kanter) and Doug Mcdermott who’s still young but in 3 NBA seasons has been a bust compared to the hype and expectations coming out College (See Jimmer Fredette). 

The Knicks will be Mcdermotts 3rd team in 3 years. Hopefully, “the 3rd time is the charm” and he’ll make a nice contribution off the bench. But still….these 2 players can’t fill Carmelo’s place.

Don’t get me wrong. I know Melo wanted to be traded. So he got his wish. But the franchise, media and even knicks fans did their part in pushing him to the edge over the past few seasons.

I think the main reason the Carmelo trade finally happened was because THE KNICKS finally have a nice young core with potential. And Melo being 33 and out of his prime didn’t fit the teams long term plan. Further, the front office probably  wanted room for the teams current young players to develop and shine right now and this wouldn’t work well with Melo’s style of play and him being a distraction.

For the Knicks going forward, the priority will be Kristaps, who everyone expects to be the next Dirk, the new lottery pick Frank Ntilikina who can be another Giannis type player and Tim Hardaway junior who they just paid 75 million to get back and not Carmelo as he chases a title over the last few years of his career.

I understand the move was needed for both the Knicks future young core and rebuilding process (as well as Carmelo’s shot at getting a title) but at what cost? It leaves the Knicks back at square one, the same spot the team was before Amare and eventually Carmelo came. 

Essentially the Knicks just set the clock back 17 years ago when the Ewing era ended. The team has literally accomplished nothing worth mentioning or fans being proud of since then the late 90′s. Ok maybe “Linsanity” but even that last more than half a season. Even worse, Jeremy Lin in Brooklyn playing for the rival Nets. And this is the exact type of situation Knicks fans have come to expect from this “cursed” franchise.

It comes as no surprise then that Carmelo didn’t work. That Era is officially over. It’s 2017 and Knicks probably wont even be making playoffs again let alone contending for a title in a long time. 

Let’s hope Kristaps, and this new Knicks team, is at least fun to watch, because I’m definitely still a fan. I’ll be rooting for Carmelo and OKC opening night, though.

With their backs up against a wall and time running out the Knicks stepped up and dismantled their rivals tonight, beating the Nets 110-81.

It was solid team effort as they shot a season high 60% and took a commanding hold of the game from the start. Leading the way to victory was J.R. Smith who finished with 24 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists, while Melo added 23 points and 10 rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr. also did his thing, not letting his sprained ankle stop him, as he contributed 17 points. 

Aside from this impressive win, with the Hawks losing to the Bulls tonight the Knicks have swooped in on Atlanta’s territory and are now tied for the 8th seed in the East. 

With no margin for error and only 6 games left, the Knicks must continue to play the season out with this kind of intensity if they hope to make it to the post-season,
