MLK game: Celtics at Knicks

by knicksdefense on January 21, 2008

Game time 1pm.

What better way to honor the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., than with a victory over the Celtics–and don’t tell me I have a dream, we can beat this team if we show heart and play smart.

Expert Frank Isola was on NBATV tonight sounding much like Lives saying the team has turned a corner. He said that he expects the Knicks to put up a good fight tomorrow (still Isola said the C’s would win, but who wouldn’t on national TV?). He did that very same kind of backpedaling at this time before, didn’t he? “I always thought this would be a playoff team,” was the exact quote during the 6-game streak if I recall correctly. Isola the jellyfish fence-straddler needs to just pick a side and quit calling loyal Knick fans everywhere “male groupies.”

I missed that Nate Robinson dunk in the first half of the Miami game, fortunately Alan Hahn found the video on youtube, check out Knicks Fix if you wish to revisit the footage. Somebody please tell nate if he uses his supreme talent to focus on defense he’ll have plenty of opportunities for more dunks in the game. Anticipate passes, read the passing lanes, he’s been studying Steve Nash tapes to become a better playmaker and that’s great, but he should supplement that with some Muggsy Bogues tapes if he has the time. Anyway, Nate has been doing a great job lately so I’m happy for him.

That’s two dunks for Nate in Miami thus far in his career. Does Nate even have a shoe sponsor yet? Would Steve and Barry’s possibly be interested?

Where are all the Thomas supporters now? I remember what people were critical of Thomas months ago, people on this site would trash them. Now they same people are trashing Thomas. Thomas is looking like Larry Brown. He seems to be so interested in over playing Jared and Q who are hurting the team.

I remember when Larry Brown coached here and said he would start playing the younger players and never did. Now I say I will play people who give the Knicks the best chance, yet I continue to start Q and Jared’s, not Lee is the first person off the bench. And Balkman doesn’t play for manyt reasons. I know balkman can do much better then Q or Jared, but Q and Jared have pictures of me that they said they would release to the media if I benched them.

I got pictures of you Thomas and if you f–k with me everyone will know what you don’t want them to know.

How come the same people who were critical of Brown aren’t critical of me. After all, I said I could have won with the team I provided for Brown. Now I know that statement is bull because I can’t win with this Knicks team. Maybe, I’ll come up with another excuse. oh yeah, its the Giants fault, when the Giants show up at Knicks game, they take the attention away from the knicks and then the knicks lose focus. Ban the Giants from knicks games. It’s their fault the Knicks are losing.
