The entire NBA is now taking note of the warning Chris Bosh sent out to the entire League, " The Knicks are building one very dangerous team and they are flying under the radar."
Perhaps the most scary fact is the EYE of this Orange and Blue Storm is gathering strength every day that Shumpert, Amare and Camby can take more time to get healthy and add to
the increased severity of category of this Storm. With Tyson Chandler playing yesterday battling Flu like symptoms and the conditioning of Rasheed Wallace increasing every day is disconcerting to every team
in the league that must face this Orange and Blue Storm.
The message the Knicks will send tonight is that they will not take "Games Off" or let up. The depth of this team will not allow for such under Coach Miike Woodson. What may be even more scary is that the Knicks have by far not played their best Basketball as of yet. This Re-post of the Sixer blog ( Thank Brookdon of The Knicks Blog) will show the opposition's view from a perspective of other teams that have to face this Orange and Blue Storm : SIXER BLOG COMMENTS MADE YESTERDAY..........
"The key would be stopping Melo. Melo is their ONLY scoring threat out there. Hopefully, Thad, Dorell and ET can give Melo a hard time scoring."
"Lavoy on Tyson Chandler: Holy mismatch"
"Thad on Melo is a huge mismatch in favor of Melo"
"When did the Knicks learn to move the ball?"
"Sixers should slow it down and wait for half the Knicks roster to die."
"I hate Novak."
"When will the Knicks 3pt% finally regress?"
"Maybe seeing what Melo does to us before and after Iguodala will convince people he was important?"
"But the defense as a whole has been very bad. Gotta say though, the Knicks’ spacing is really impressive. They did this against (a half asleep, but still) Miami the other night. They are so much better with Melo at the 4."
" I agree with melo being better at the four simply because he causes match up problems from that position, is a good passer out of double teams as well."
"Personal dislike aside, I think the Knicks are a pretty good team that has a chance to be special. Their weakness last year was injuries + PG play. And Melo at the 4 creates a mismatch at that spot plus it opens up the 3 for another perimeter shooter."
"The MSG broadcast is actually not that bad"
"JR Smith has nights like this every once in a while just hits EVERYTHING. When he was with the Nuggets seemed like every week or 2 I’d look at the scoreboard and see that Smith had dropped like 37 or 41 or something with 7 3s."
Tonight will be another Knick Blowout win. Tonight we may see the finalisation of the starting lineup despite Amare and Shumpert's return. Tonight you may see JR Smith's punishment for talking to the press about his goal of being a starter lifted. Worth repeating again " "JR Smith has nights like this every once in a while just hits EVERYTHING. When he was with the Nuggets seemed like every week or 2 I’d look at the scoreboard and see that Smith had dropped like 37 or 41 or something with 7 3s.
The Knicks have held the Heat and Sixers whom have both been predicted by the MSM to finish well ahead of the Knicks to 84 points! 84 points!!! This Orange and Blue Storm's defense will only get much better when Camby and Shumpert return and Rasheed Wallace is in NBA shape. Make no mistake, we are watching something special evolve here that is not a gimmick or insanity. We are watching the early coming together of the 2012-13 unbeatable Orange and Blue Hurricane formerly known as the New York Knicks. It's been 40 long years since we've had a team so special, talented and well coached.
Here is a bold prediction that I will make and feel it will happen. The Knicks start out 12-0. Yes I said that, 12-0. Here are our next 9 games after tonight:

Call me whatever you feel like ...... but after this run... all the MSM highlights will be: CAN THE ORANGE AND BLUE STORM WHO THE KNICKS HAVE BECOME. BE STOPPED?
Of course this is wishful thinking but consider the talent and determination of this Orange and Blue Hurricane formerly known as the New York Knicks, it would not take a miracle or insanity for such a start
to truly happen. Don't bet against me here...you'd lose big time!
