      Looks like Bron, Wade and Chalmers are sitting again tonight. I’m cool with that. If it means we can get another win and continue building confidence, I’m happy with that.

      A lot of these arguments are a complete waste of time. The team had a pretty good year. I think most of us would agree:

      1st round series loss = a grave disappointment.

      2nd round series loss= would be sad, but still seems like a reasonable place for this team to bow out.

      ECF loss = completely expected, a win would be sheer joy.

      Now please return to quibbling over the details.

      what discussion here isn’t a complete waste of time in those terms, honestly? the only point of this site is those discussions, waste of time though they may be.

      I don’t write frequently (at all), but I read every recap and a lot of those “waste of time” discussions. Some of them make me understand more the aspects of the game and of our beloved team. Some of them serve me to find peace knowing that I’m not the only crazy guy in the world rooting for a team that hasn’t won anything since 1973 (I was born 1975). Being a NY Knicks fan is kind of a sick addiction, a bad habit. Shout outs to all my fellow Knickerbockers. PS: As you can see, this is why I don’t post frequently. My post are the perfect example of a complete waste of time!!!….Btw, shout outs to all of you on twitter! (@siloeandino)

      I was also born in 1975, therefore, I have never tasted a championship. I started really following the Knicks the day they drafted Patrick Ewing, just to piss off my big sister. (she went to St. John’s and actually shared some classes with Chris mullin and mark Jackson. So of course I rooted for Georgetown since they were St. John’s arch rival.)
      It’s been a long and tortured relationship with my team. I’m sure all of my fellow bloggers have gone through the same misery. Misery most definitely loves company. Discovering this blog 3 years ago has almost been like group therapy for my tortured soul.

      well said. I was born in 1966 but my first sports memories are from 1975, so I also have no memory of the Knicks winning it all.

      Let’s hope this is a much rejuvenated Tyson that’ll be going balls to the wall every night. We need that guy.

      Was looking forward to the clash of the titans in the east, but we now get a varsity vs jv game :-(

      However, as the hoop savant and philosopher Wm Russell once said, ” The game is on the schedule, we have to play it….. we might as well win it!”

    9. johnlocke

      Agreed – Kenyon has been a clearly better defender in his time than Chandler has all season. I also really want to see Martin on Bosh, I think that will tell us something egarding playoff matchups. We’ll see…

      1975 Rules!!! We got disco music as babies, we got to witness the birth of Hip Hop, breaking, graffiti…you know, all that stuff you 1990’s kids watch on youtube and try to emulate now. We got Different Strokes, The Cosby Show, Alf, He-Man, TMNT, etc…. LOL And hey, at least the Yankees and the Giants have won. That’ve helped my sanity.
