Star center Jason Smith (3.9rbs/36min) looks to lead the Knicks to victory tonight in Brooklyn versus the Nets. The Knicks have dropped 2 in a row including a heart breaker to the Pistons in which the team came up just one ill-advised-step-back three pointer short of a victory. Speaking of which… J.R.

No matter who is playing, let’s bring this win streak to nine. Go New York Go New York Go.

So here is a preview of what I would have said if I wasn’t going to miss the game because I’m taking my parents to dinner. Thomas B. March 9, 2013 7:25 pm Shump Shump Thomas B.
