Here’s an effective strategy for Knick opponents. Sit in your lockerroom for the first 3 quarters. Smoke a Phillie, drink a couple of 40s-- enjoy yourselves! Then send out 3 or 4 players in the last quarter and kick the Knick’s collective ass. Easy-peasy.
So I was listening to an interview of Sprewell the other day. He was asked what was the main problem with the Knicks last year and he said that the different off-court cliques never gelled together on court-- there were the religious guys and the non-religious guys and the two groups never played like a team.
When asked to comment on this, Alan Houston said, “That’s not true. We invited Spree to bible study.”
Is it me or is there something lacking in offense all around the league? Some sample scores from all over: 86 to 79, 84 to 75, 71 to 76, 75 to 68(this game here was just my beloved Knicks sucking so much they sucked all the points out of Orlando). What kind of scores are these? Maybe basketball needs the equivalent of a batting coach. I could be nice and say how great the defense is around the league, but I’d be lying. It seems the pros have forgotten how to make baskets.
Ayeup. It’s gonna be a long, painful season.
