“He had 39 points!” you snap. And he was 2-for-7 in the fourth quarter, with some woeful turnovers occurring at crunch time. But why let facts interfere with idolatry? The truth is, you got Anthony at his best and the Knicks still lost.
When you pay your best player, you pray your player will earn his keep. And if he flares out, so does the franchise.
The Knicks should beat the Pacers because, frankly, Indiana is not that talented. But they’re tough. And Anthony isn’t. If he were, if he were the least bit unselfish and introspective, he would learn to change his game and his name.
Only the most jaded Jeter fans could ignore the obvious. Derek Jeter is older, slower, and injured. There will be a day when he can’t play anymore. Will it be this year or next?
I know what you’re thinking. If he’s dumb enough to spend a million bucks on an engagement ring, he doesn’t deserve to get it back.
The unnecessarily arduous Celtics series and Sunday’s flatline in front of their fans shows that the Knicks will lose eventually. And that’s because they are led by a loser.
Many of us weren’t as accepting 25 years ago. It’s called progress. Can we stop calling it revolutionary, and just evolutionary?
Tebow was a hybrid of player, prayer and a flashpoint of a complex, spiritual movement. His kneeling refrain doubled as an emblem of optimism. And he has just been released by the Jets, for reasons that only they understand.
The Jets wear a splintered crown. They lost Revis because the owner wanted him gone. They have Rex Ryan because the owner wants him. And perhaps they spent the first two picks on defense — surprise! — because Ryan wanted them.
There’s a throwback bent to Matt Harvey, an old soul in a young body. He’s supremely gifted. But it’s too early to say how much. And that’s fine.
Without saying it, the Jets said it. They don’t plan to contend for years. And it will take a lot more than Tampa Bay’s first-round pick to fix it. And now, by the way, you also have a gaping hole at cornerback.
Listening to WFAN over the last six months, you can’t help but hear that callers and even radio hosts are oddly simpatico: If the Knicks beat the Boston Celtics, then the season is a success. And that is unacceptable.
The baritone bard of the NFL for nearly 40 years, Summerall nursed an entire generation into the card-carrying, frothing football maniacs we’ve become.
Maybe it’s too soon this second, but by tomorrow we will clamor for sports, for the soothing transaction of a three-pointer, the staccato squeak of sneakers, the crisp crack of a bat meeting a ball.
Anthony is a wildly gifted player who could, and should, be more. If only he passed and played defense. Who knows how far he and the Knicks could go?
