Looks Like Jarred Jeffries is "Coming Home" too. I wonder what his video tribute will be like. One things for sure, it won't include highights of him dribbling with his left hand
Ghost of Knicks Christmas Future with a Orange & Blue Jersey and #7
WOW! MELO'S debut drew the highest household rating for a regular-season game on MSG Networks since ’95. We lost the Chip to Houston in 94!
A lot of people now watching our knicks...without laughing!
We are BACK....baby!
IT really does not pay to move up to 4th and face a tougher opponent in the first round. The more this team plays and practices together, the better off it will be in the playoffs. Mind you Bloggas, a playoff spot is not a GIVEN. However, as true Fanatics we roll on faith and the works of the studs (Amare as Batman and Melo as Robin and Chauncey as Commissioner Gordon). Gotham is all lit up and the Mecca is poppin'. Amare needs to recognize that the Mecca does not need to be the Staple Center East--it is already the Mecca.
With the numbers of practices and games left to be played, this team should do well in 7 games against Chicago and then began to gell at the right time for the second round. By then, we will have a fictitious and fony coach on the bench while "The Commissioner a.k.a. Mr. Big Shot" runs the squad with aplomb. He can do that and they can win. Egos--check; Energy--check; Effort on D--check; Enlist the services of a bona fide rebounder/shot blocker--covetous and Steady does not covet OTP (until/unless they OPT out of course).
Steady as IT goes to DOC H20 12
A few days before MARCH MADDNESS begins. I believe our knicks can provide some Maddness themselfs! I truly feel we'll jump ATL and the Magic seem to have big chemistry problems. We've owned the Bulls so far without our new Stars Big Shot & Melo. With all the hell we knick fans have been through, it's time for a lucky bounce our way!
@BARF The Knicks would be well served by working w/ Brewer on his long ball and slashing game. He can defend and if he can address those othert two defficiencies he could help on the court.
@Orange_and_Blue I know man I'm just poking fun. He'll be a good fit for this team
@AaronHodges Jefferies doesn't need to dribble, he just needs to disrupt the opponent's ball handler and cover as he does quite well on switches.
@Steady Yeah NY plays better against Chicago than Dwight the Fright and the Magic. Just develop the chemistry and see if the 2nd round of the playoffs can bring some surprises.
Again, though Jefferies will give the Knicks glue guy depth. They need size and more snipers. I think Smurphy could help there along with My Name is Earl Barron.
@Steady I hear ya Steady! Just thinking about what Greg Anthony said on NBA TV. He said if the Knicks can get to the EC "Final four" we would be in a position "Just like in the NCAA" to win the ECF.
