    1. Wow – yesterday’s thread. good to see Knickerblogger.com comments section is in midseason dumpster fire form.

      Seriously guys, can we give all the players on the team more than a single game before we start extrapolating the entire season? maybe at least 2 or 3 games? or maybe sprinkle in a single game that wasn’t against the defending champs in their building?

      look, if we play Memphis on friday and it looks as terrible, then a very tiny sliver of concern will appear in my head. but even then, it’d just be TWO GAMES.

    2. Frank, don’t let a few voices poison your experience. Most people on this blog feel the Knicks are on the right path (I’m definitely *not* one of them), so give the “optimistic” voices more weight if you find more affinity with them.

      I am not bothered by Reub’s posts, for example. His blind optimism is kind of refreshing, tbh! (maybe because I’ve always felt he truly feels the opposite of what he claims and is just trolling everyone for attention…lol…)

      It’s just entertainment.
