Man, last night was tough to watch…Jim Burr, Tim Higgins and Earl Walton made a mockery of officiating and the Knicks have made a habit of faltering late in the fourth quarter.
How dare I forget the magical month of March. It really is embarrassing, shameful even. This is the time of year that college basketball players live for.
We all know the big names that played Superman, an icon that is synonymous with superhuman qualities. But did any of them possess the real-life attributes seen by Dwight Howard night in and night out?
In only their third game together, we learned a lot about the new-look Knicks. After a head shaking performance in Cleveland Friday night, Carmelo and Co. responded with a gritty, hard-nosed, defensive-minded victory over the Heat.
27 losses into the Knicks’ season and there continues to be a blatant disregard for employing basic defensive principles into the game plan.
It’s Carmelo Anthony, it’s Amar’e Stoudemire… it’s Toney Douglas? On a night when the Knicks rolled out their red carpet to a new marquee name, it was their point-guard understudy that stole the show.
Deron Williams is heading to the Nets and quite frankly I am shocked.
Donnie Walsh could have played hardball, but what if the Nets found a way to get it done? What if Thursday came and went and the Knicks didn’t have ‘Melo? This city would be in an uproar.
For Knicks fans, Carmelo Anthony justifies the time spent wallowing in frustration, cursing at a TV, launching a utensil or small glass in utter anger.
There haven’t been a lot of times this year where I’ve said it. In fact, this was the first time in the last eight weeks where it was evident. The New York Knicks were overmatched.
Can we be done? Is it safe to say that the Knicks have now proven a point? Can they get some of the respect that they actually deserve?
You know that basketball “experts” all over the country are just looking to slam the Knicks on their first stumble against a solid opponent.
The New York Mets might as well offer Amar’e Stoudemire a $10 million deal for next summer, because STAT is rapidly becoming the most talked about closer in town.
The New York Knicks are the hottest team in the NBA. When was the last time you could say that?
Was it pretty? Absolutely not…Could Gallinari guard a tree yesterday? Absolutely not…Was Tayshaun Prince unstoppable? Yes… Should the Knicks have lost? Absolutely…Did they? No…
