Honestly, I'm a die hard Knick fan, but I will be shocked if they win tonight. How much do you think they will lose by tonight? The one plus is Dirk is roughed up and probably won't go, so I hope it's under 10.

Knicks beat the Lebrons
Tuesday, March 27, 2007
You decide is this a goaltend? It pretty much cost the Knicks the game. That and midget Jameer Nelson grabbing offensive boards and cashing threes down the stretch. Eddy Curry needs to actually try and grab some rebounds, or block shots. Absolutly nobody is scared of him as much as they should be. Knicks lose a big game and are now 2 games out of the playoffs.

Knicks Steal Morris
Randolph Morris formally of the Kentucky Wildcats was just signed by the Knicks to a 2 year contract. He is eligible to play immediately. The only reason why he is eligible is because he entered the draft 2 years ago leaving school, however, he was not drafted and because he never hired an agent he was able to return to school. So now, the Knicks who are in desperate need of a fresh big man, actually A big man who plays defense, will suit up Morris. Randolph Morris is a defensive mined F/C listed as 6-11 260, but also has scoring power averaging 20 points in the NCAA Tournament and 16 for the season to go with 7.8 rbs and 2 blocks. The Knicks pulled a fast one on the league, and dare I say it, a good(with the possibility of great) pick up.

Patrick's Finest Moment
Knicks beating the pesky Pacers. As a Knicks fan, I still hate Reggie, I respect Michael but not Reggie.
Lazy defense, blaming poor play on officials, and injuries caused last nights debacle in a loss at HOME to the Jail Blazers. Eddy Curry is just 3 twinkies short of Oliver Miller and hasn't played defense since.........well there is no since he just never does. I hope the 2006-2007 Knicks make the playoffs but honestly this is going to come down to the last day. If any of the 4 teams(Knicks, Magic, Nets and Pacers) fighting for that final playoff spot go on a 4 game winning streak they might clinch, that's how bad the East is.

Knicks Lose to Dallas
Did you really think they were going to win this one? Especially with everybody hurt and getting hurt during the game. Very very very very very frustrating. Also because if we don't make the playoffs the Bulls get our lottery pick...........GREAT MOVE ISIAH!!! Yeah we received Curry in that deal but we could be getting Oden greeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaat.

I've been saying it all year long. Give Renaldo Balkman some minutes and you won't regret it. He came through yesturday afternoon with a strong double double 15 and 12 in 33 minutes. He lead the charge in putting the division leading Raptors away in the 3rd with a 35 point quarter.

No loss is easy but it hurts even more when the Magic win. Now we are on the outside of the playoffs looking in(by only percentage points but still). "Double" Lee needs to come backkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk. The Knicks need to find a way to have Eddy Curry and Stephon Marbury have big games on the same night. Here's the box score of last nights loss to the "Terrana" Raptors.http://scores.espn.go.com/nba/boxscore?gameId=270314028 Is it me or does Chris Bosh actually look like a real Raptor?

**Longer Then Expected**
David Lee is going to be out a couple of more weeks the injury he sustained is a little more severe then originally thought. Andrew Marchand from ESPN.com reports http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2797224
Monday, March 12, 2007
Coach/President/GM Isiah Thomas was resigned to a "multi-year deal" terms of the deal were not disclosed. He deserves it, these young guys really buy into his system and really look up to him as a mentor. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2795257

Buzzer Beater Volts Knicks into Tie for 8th Seed
Just seconds after getting flash backs of the Marbury miss against the Sonics, Steve Francis missed a free throw that seemingly ended the game. The Wizards answered with a missed free throw to give the Knicks new life. With Washington only up by two Francis goes behind the back on Antonio Daniels and drains the three as time expires, nothing but material touches the ball, swooosh. Francis then hopped to the scorers table and posed with his arms crossed, then was mobbed by his teamates. KNICKS WIN!! KNICKS WIN!! To top it off the Nets get trounced by San Antonio, the reeling Pacers lost again, all of that combined with Stevie's three, equals the Knicks in a tie for the final playoff spot.

Where have you been? - Charles Oakley
The Oak Man, the toughest Knick, mess with him or his teammate and next time you drive down the lane, you might end up parrallel to the ground. While Patrick Ewing was the arms and legs of the Knicks in the 90s, Charles Oakley was the heart and soul. He grabbed 9 - 10 rbs a game in his glory years with the Knicks, but in no way was he one type of player. Dare to leave him open and he'll knock down the top of the key jumper, maybe better then most guards in the league today. He played 10 solid years with New York in which he solidified himself as a Knick legend. He was acquired in a trade with the Bulls for Bill Cartwright. After his 10 year Knick span he wandered around, including 3 years with the Raptors and still hasn't officially retired(but he's not Pippen he won't try to come back). Now you can catch Oakley attending some Knicks games, check for him in the first row of course, other than that he is out of the public eye.

It Doesn't Get Much Worse Then That
After dropping 40 and playing like the Starbury we thought the Knicks where getting Marbury misses. If you are a hater or not you have to feel bad for him. There's just not much I can say about this game this picture says it all.

Big O.T. WIN
The Knicks outlasted the Atlanta Hawks last night in the ATL 104-100 in OT. Marbury with his 6th straight game over 20 and his 2nd straight over 30, dropped 38. Francis looking like shades of his old self dropped 26 off the bench. The Knicks proved they can win when Curry has an off night he only chipped in with 9 points. NY couldn't put down any easy bucket throughout the game as they had opportunity after opportunity but they still pulled out the victory. Renaldo Balkman added a double double with 12 points and 13 boards!! They also gained a game on the Nets who lost last night. Only one game out of the playoffs now http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/standings?season=2007&group=conference&seasontype=2

Marbury turning back to Starbury
Five straight games with 20 or more points for Steph plus last nights 34. He is stepping up. Hopefully this turns into a nice winning streak, it'll help a great deal when "Double" Lee comes back. The Knicks play the Hawks tonight then they have a week off, so Lee will most likely rest it, rather then risk it.

Francis is playing
Steve Francis aka Mr. Milky aka The Milkman is suddenly ok enough to play. He was amazingly ok enough to play right before the deadline, then he said he might be out for the season with "tendinitis." Now after Crawford is out for the season he is suddenly ok enough to play, hopefully he plays well but either way I don't want him on the roster next year. STEVE FRANCIS ALL ABOUT HIMSELF NOT THE TEAM.
Thursday, March 01, 2007
The Knicks got smacked around last night in Boston, home of the Celtics, aka the worst team in the league, aka what the Knicks were last year. I can't say I am surprised with Crawford probably out for the season, Nate had the flu, and "Double" Lee's ankle is still bothering him,they didn't have much fire power. This season is probably over, it kills me to say it but I am not being a pessimistic I am being a REALisitic. With that said, the youth movement and building for next year and the years after has to start NOW. So why are we starting Malik Rose? You need to start Channing Frye this is the perfect time to let him develop(even if he has been playing like a lost little boy all year), all Renaldo Balkman does whenever he is on the floor is produce, so why not give him 25 minns a night to develop? Mardy Collins played 25 hard minns last night he had 6 points and 5 assists(just 1 assist shy of Marburys total for last night in 44 minns). If the young guys can get it done and put them into the playoffs it'll be a huge boost in the youngins mentality and experience for this year and the next couple of years. You have to buy out Mr. Milky aka the Milkman aka Steve Francis, who has been milking his knee injury all year. If the team was any good he'd be on the floor so get this guy out of town one way or another. It's kind've ironic that he was on the floor in the games leading up to the deadline(when he just got back after going home to Houston to "rehabilitate" his knee) and now that the deadline has passed(with no action)he is back in street clothes. Once Lee comes back the starting lineup for the Knicks should be Marbury, Q-Rich, "Double" Lee, Frye and the monster Curry. Nate, Balkman, Collins Jefferies, and Rose as the second team(and once and a while a Jerome James sighting just for shits and giggles). Isiah, your job is safe just build for the future, pleeaaasssee, and you won't regret it when the team you envision becomes great in the near future.
