      OK, since everyone’s sleeping, I thought I’d share a version of GoNYGoNYGo my kids and I wrote when our power was out in the aftermath of Sandy.

      We’re back in the game
      After many years of shame
      Now we’re ready to compete
      With the celtics and the heat
      Yeah, we old but we never looked deeper
      Just be wishing’ the seats were a little bit cheaper

      We got Melo and Tyson in their primes
      And Ray-Ray and JKidd dishin out the dimes
      And if the fans start feeling any pain,
      Then whoosh, have a shot or two of Novakaine

      No more Jeffries follies or Landry Fields bricks
      We are New York, we are the NY Knicks

      Go ny go ny go
      Go ny go ny go

      When the fans yell for DEE-fense hey we got what you need
      Here comes Shump Shump, Cambyman, Brewer and Rasheed
      If its offense you’re looking for, we got what you require,
      With Crazy EyesThomas, JR Smith and Stoudemire
      And with all the boys from Europe, our rotation’s really tight
      Viva Prigioni, Copeland and James Flight White
      Between Woody and the geezers we know all the dirty tricks
      We are New York, we are the NY Knicks

      Go ny go ny go
      Go ny go ny go

      So Chris Palmer on EPSN just picked the Knicks to win the championship. I’m starting to agree with him, at least as far as making the Finals. Wade is just not the same player, and I think the Knicks have the perfect personnel to at least slow down Lebron. I for one never thought it was some freak coincidence that Lebron just did awful in the Finals against Dallas, I just thought they had a perfect game plan to stop him and he didn’t have the skill set to adjust. The post game was a massive game changer, as well as simply spacing the floor all the way to force people to guard Lebron one on one. The Knicks are more athletic and versatile than that Dallas team, however, and there’s the fact that when Miami played Dallas, Wade had an absolute monster series while Lebron was out crapping the floor. Don’t know that Wade is going to be averaging 30 for a playoff series anytime soon.

      I find it hard to believe that the Heats second unit can stop a potential bench lineup of Prigioni, Shump, Smith, Amare and Sheed/Camby. Their team looks very weak against a great pick and roll finisher so I don’t see how they can stop A’mare and Tyson from destroying them in the paint. Play Bosh physical with Sheed/Tyson and he disappears while we can let Lebron get his 30-10-10 for the series. Wade is definitley the key if Miami wants any shot at getting back to the finals.

      there is an insanely long time until the playoffs start, let’s just focus on tonight. at this point last year, opening night was still 2+ weeks away (!!).

    7. johnlocke

      Yeh, will be tougher for Felton and Chandler to do their thing with much better bigs defending the paint. I expect a lot of threes once more… hopefully we can stay hot. And hopefully JR finally decides to play like he did in the first 6 games.

      jon abbey:
      Melo out again today, says he’s probable for tomorrow. this one is going to be tough…

    8. johnlocke

      Is there an article or was it just on Twitter?

      yeah, the good JR coming back would be welcome. Chicago’s guards are terrible right now and all of their top guys played a ton last night, so this one’s still very winnable with a good effort.

    10. Nick C.

      jon abbey: fired by the Post last year, he is on Twitter currently.

      I never noticed he was gone. Any story about why , since they aren’t exactly choosy
