      I for one am not happy that Garnett isn’t playing. This is just the kind of game in which that annoying, arrogant, smug, despicable Paul Pierce loves to rip Knicks’ fans hearts out. I hate that guy.

      Probably not a player who I hate/instills constant fear in me when we face them. Melo needs to live on the block tonight especially given Garnett’s absence. Ideally we could get this win without Chandler and then he comes back for tomorrow’s game against Memphis. Winning these next 2 would be great especially with the possibility of the Nets dropping some of their upcoming games @Portland, @Denver and @Utah.

      I’d take Stephen Curry over any other young point guard in the league. I’ve never seen a purer shooter in my life and his point guard game has improved drastically since his college days. He’s really starting to do a good job of managing the game and as pg that’s the hardest skill to master. What a player and fuck you Don Nelson from plucking him at No. 7 right before we picked Jordan Hill. Vomit.

      I was surprised by how well Boston was playing without Rondo for awhile. Granted, they probably got a little lucky in some of their OT games, but I’ve been waiting for a downturn. It finally came. Without Garnett now also, IMO the Celts may not even be a playoff caliber team in the east (definitely not the west). Chandler or not, we are supposed to handle Boston. If we can’t get up for and beat them, it’s going to move my mental state one inch further away from this season and next and one inch closer to the 2015 rebuild.

      After just a handful of interviews I could tell Curry was going to get a lot better. A big part of getting better is about intelligence, work ethic, being emotionally well adjusted, attitude, values, and just being what we would consider a well rounded good kid etc..

      If those qualities come through clearly, you can be fairly sure the guy is going to be in the gym working on the physical aspects of his game a lot and looking at video and stats to improve his court awareness and understanding of the game a lot of the rest of the time. Curry was pretty close to a mortal lock. All he has to do is stay healthy and he can become a great player.

      Yeah. I was furious on draft night and I’m even more furious now. That draft was a pretty bad smudge on Walsh’s ledger. I mean, forgetting about Curry, we drafted Jordan Hill over Jennings, Lawson, Holiday, Collison, Teague…all guys I would take over Duck Felton right about now (althought, I’m not a fan of Collison’s or Jenning’s games). Hell, I’d probably even be happy with Eric Maynor from that draft (I loved him coming out of VCU. Him and LARRY SANDERS! were a beatly duo).

    7. chrisk06811

      how does Mike Vacarro get paid for the 1st article, “knicks and their fans want no part of celtics in the playoffs?” That’s not what woodson says at all, he says don’t take them lightly. Any team that makes the playoffs believes that they can beat whoever gets in their way. This isn’t journalism.

      And, he identifies the guy from the Allstate commericals as being the guy from Oz. that’s Liz Lemon’s old boyfriend Dennis, dummy.

      Scoring seasons like the one Stephen Curry is having don’t happen very often, and never happen for a primary scoring option like Stephen Curry is. The kid is an amazing player, and I still hate that he isn’t a Knick.

      I’d take Kyrie Irving over Steph Curry eight days a week.

      same guy, he was in Oz way before 30 Rock.

    12. Brian Cronin

      I think Walsh did poorly with the draft, as well, but I dunno how you can knock him too much for not drafting Curry when he wasn’t available when the Knicks were drafting and they tried to trade up to the #5 pick but didn’t have the assets to beat the offer the T-Wolves gave (Randy Foye and Mike Miller, who at the time was still an above-average player). What makes no sense, though, was why the Wizards were looking to deal that pick.

      I’m with this. Curry was gone and there were other good players available. Still, think what baby Mozart could have done for D’Antoni. Lin, might be selling insurance now.

      Really looking forward to listening to Charles Barkley’s completely objective and rational evaluation of the Knicks tonight

      lmao.

      I don’t even care anymore because it’s obvious Barkley is just a massive troll. Before the NCAA tournament he said that the Mountain West was a better conference than the Big Ten. He’s clearly out there with the agenda of pissing people off and driving up interest whenever he “analyzes” basketball.

      Btw my favorite thing is Barkley insisting the reason the Knicks can’t win is that they depend heavily on threes. Then I remember the 2011 Mavs and Mike Miller hitting 7 threes in Game 5 last year for Miami.
