Quick note to pass along on everybody’s favorite Yoda, via the Bee:
Kings assistant Pete Carril and two other longtime coaches will receive the Lapchick Character Award on Nov. 17 at Madison Square Garden.
The award recognizes those who have shown the character traits of Joe Lapchick, the late Hall of Famer who coached at St. John’s and with the New York Knicks.
Good for Pete – can’t think of a better guy in basketball. Every time I see him, hands over eyes on the bench, I can’t help but smirk a little bit.
