      And in other NBA news, Charles Barkley thinks the Nets have a “higher playoff ceiling” than the Knicks. Yes, that makes sense, a team that wilts in 4th quarters and whose go to guys disappear at the end of games is truly built for the playoffs.

      And who are 0-3 against Miami by 30, 13, and 20 points.

      he’s just sticking with his intentionally mildly controversial point from the preseason. if he ends up being wrong, he’ll blame it on something, and if he ends up being right, he looks good because no one else was saying that. I was a big fan of his public persona when he was playing, but he comes across as an insufferable, lazy idiot now.

      I’m just convinced that even if LeBron, Tim Duncan, and Chris Paul are on the Knicks, He’ll still say that they have no chance of winning.

      Z-man….I’m not that convinced that to a professional athlete, the altitude in Denver is that big a deal. And, if your logic holds, the Denver team as a whole should have a conditioning advantage, no matter where they play, and they don’t.

      I’ve seen probably 4 games at the Pepsi center, and I’ve never noticed an opposing team being unusually gassed. I do suspect Eddy Curry would have issues. Then again, there are mexican restaurants everywhere, so he’d still have a successful trip by his measures.

      I will see the Knicks there in March; I’ll let you know what I think then!
