To win a chip you have to be Good, Healthy, and very lucky! Heat caught many teams hurt in the playoffs last year and then met a very young Thunder team who was not ready to be in the finals along with Battier shooting like Bird. Saying all this, this team does have that special feeling to it and is deep enough to win if someone goes down. Last year if they would of had at least one pg that could of penetrated and made the defense sag Melo would of owned the heat.
Its a long season however and many things can happen along with trades, the lakers are still the team i see the knicks facing in the finals and people think its crazy to think that.
Knicks and 49ers!
You ****ing guys should be ashamed to refer to yourselves as fans. A bunch of sissy *** throw in the towel *****es. Man up you ****s. We are taking the East.
The value of elite scoring ability, by Phil Jackson:
"This is a guy, we recognize his talent, and his skill is the kind of skill and talent that gets you through playoff games where things get sticky, grind-out, and basketball becomes a force game and suddenly you need to have a player who has the capabilities of scoring with someone hanging on them in a situation thatís critical. Heís one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.Ē
Why is that so hard to understand??
I guess we should be like the supposed Knick fans that every year... spout off about how good we are ..gonna win the Title... Taunt other teams fans...only to be Embarrassed each and every year??
Alot of us have been Knick fans for a long long time... and been through it all..so if I choose to be very careful on how I react to threads like this declaring us the best...so be it...Hate me all you want!!
im sorry...i think this was a awesome topic...whether it was agreeable or not...but you have you usual thread killers up here...and they always get away with it too...but the minute you say something back to defend yourself they are protected by certain ppl... so im sorry this happened to you,.. and you know who im talking about too...
People argueing in this thread need to relax. We're all in agreement that the Knicks have a great shot of going all the way this year. Many of us have been through so many ups and downs with this organization so some of us are just being cautiously optimisitc. Nothing wrong with that as long as you're always backing the team. Last night was a great win and now we just have to keep playing with intensity and get everybody healthy.
Just enjoy having a good team to root for. The rest will work itself out.
People that think you are discussing "Finals Aspirations" too soon certainly have a right to state that....without you calling them "little boy" and "Knicks forum head coach" (WHATEVER THE hE@# THAT EVEN MEANS).
So as far as I am concerned...the only person being negative is you!!
is he your boyfriend that you have to defend him
Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often
So Tired of Melo Ball
On the Mike Woodson Show, Woody put up a huge sign that said "CHAMPIONSHIP MENTALITY" in the tape room.
