While we wait to see if the Knicks can beat the Bucks (and also, where the heck is Allen Iverson going to end up?), let me do my best Seinfeld impersonation and ask, “What’s the deal with Knicks in 60?”
Does anybody else watch this program? It is amazingly awful. I understand that condensing a full game into an hour (more likely about 44 minutes, with commercials taken into consideration) is quite a difficult task, but Knicks in 60 doesn’t even seem to ATTEMPT to do a good job.
What it really appears like (and I doubt this is actually the case, but it sure looks like this is the case) is that they mark the game for certain time periods, and just run those clips no matter what.
For instance, the other day, the show fast-forwarded in time to the end of the second quarter, to see Mardy Collins hoist a beyond half-court shot as the shot clock expires – that hit nothing. Huh?!?!
The show will fast-forward to people shooting FREE THROWS and then fast-forward again…BEFORE the free throws even finish! Could they possibly think what Breen and Kenny Smith are talking about during the free throws warrant a special note?
They show part of the HALF-TIME show! You only have an hour to show the WHOLE game, and you’re showing us the HALF-TIME show?!?
The worst, though, was the classic ending against the Nuggets. They showed us a few of the fourth quarter plays, but then SKIPPED Marbury’s game-tying three!!! What the heck?!!?
Or how about the recent game against the Grizzlies, where they SKIPPED Q’s awkward, game-clinching shot?!!? That was clearly the most interesting shot of the game (mentioned in all the reports of the game), and they skipped it…to go to the last seconds of a 8 point game!!!
How hard can it possibly be to edit the game so as to give us the stuff fans actually WANT to see? It is a real shambles of a program.
