Hey, Knicks fans. I bet you're feeling good after New York dominated Detroit in the fourth quarter en route to an 18 point win last night, even though most of you are going to school or work on another brutally cold morning in the city.

Well, pardon me to worsen your case of the Mondays, but I have a statistic that's going to make you want to punch through a brick wall.

That player was Charlie Ward, and he is the only one of 50 players who garnered that honor.
