Blame the Knicks for playing amazing Defense and great share the ball offense for the first 7 games and then losing focus for 3.
If they didn't come out showing how good they CAN be, then I'd have nothing to compare their performance to when they lost focus.
It's NOT a backhanded compliment to note the good things the Knicks do, and note the Good things that they STOPPED doing. It's pointing out what's actually happening.
And it was the Knicks who said they believe they're Championship contenders and a Win NOW team.
So, you put that out there and play like that, then it's not unfair to expect them to keep on doing it.
