The New York Knicks March Madness
The March Madness Conspiracy in New York
The New York Knicks are winning again. Wow! Am I the only one wondering how is it that the New York Knicks suddenly remember to play defense and to hustle after the ball? Am I the only one wondering how strange it is that all of a sudden the New York Knicks are playing with energy and are happy on he court? Am I the only one who believes that Mike D’antini did himself a big favor and probably prevented himself from having a nervous breakdown by just quitting and walking away before he got fired?
The New York Knicks players suddenly realize that it is a shortened season and they need to play like they want to make the playoffs. Suddenly they are awake and realize that while they were sabotaging their coach they were in fact ruining their season. How many people still believe they can cut off their nose to spite their face. Well, I don’t hear your nose complaining.
LINsanity and March Madness
Looks like Linsanity is alive and well. Why were the Knicks not laying like this before? Because the stars on the Knicks team were not happy with D’Antoni and they knew if they played bad enough the coach would be gone. The question for Woodson now is this; what if they decide to quit on you like they did on D’Antoni? Enjoy your weekend. The Knicks are 3-0 under the new coach. Let’s wish them well.
New York Knicks In Free Fall
There is a problem with the New York Knicks and something has to give. What is the problem with the Knicks? Should Melo be traded? A coach is someone who does not necessarily have to be where you want to go, but has the skill to get you there. There is enough blame to go around from coach Mike D’Antoni, Jeremy Lin, Carmelo Anthony, and Amare. The point is that somebody has to buy-in. Everybody can’t be stubborn and want it their way. The question to the New York Knicks team is, Are You ALL IN?
Are you all in? People go to work and sweat to make their money and come to a game and see millionaires strolling along the court. The lowest paid New York Knick makes more money than many people who come to the game. Where is the sweat and hustle of the Knicks millionaires? NBA stars are making $250,000 PER GAME for 48 minutes and don’t get a rebound. That is wrong! Three rebounds in a game? Come on! The New York Knicks are robbing the fans.
Fire The Knicks Coach?
Fire the coach- Nonsense! Firing the coach is the easy way out and teams that fire the coach even when it’s clear the players are at fault, never win anything. Let me show you what I mean. When the Heat just came together last year there was a stretch when they were not doing well. Everyone was speculating that they would fire the coach
And Pat Riley would return to coaching. But that did not happen and the Heat made it to the NBA finals.
The New York</Knicks
The New York Knicks have just added new pieces up to a month ago. Amare was grieving, Carmelo was out with injury. So to be fair, the Knicks really haven’t had a chance to really get their act together. But, the Knicks need to do better. D’Antoni is the one who is not coming back next season, Carmelo needs to play harder. That’s it! You are an $85M man. Play hard! Amare – you are a $100M man- play hard.
THE REAL ROSE
Carmelo is All LIN
Carmelo Anthony can now play his true position. He was doing too many things and now with Jeremy Lin being a true point guard, Melo can play his own position and we will see the New York Knicks move up the charts and become a contender and no longer a pretender.
Carmelo Anthonyis being criticized unfairly because he was playing out of position. He had to be playing point guard, power forward, forward and everything in between. This is what Melo and Amare needed and now they have it. Let us give them a chance to play and then we can decide.
LINsanity with Precision
The biggest story in sports now is Linsanity. Even the New York Times is paying attention and there is so much going on that they don’t even have to make up anything. The truth of the matter is that you could not make this up. Jeremy Lin was cut by two teams who did not see his value and talent. Then when he got called up for the New York Knicks he was on the bench and two days away from being cut. In the second half of the Knicks versus Nets game he was ut in the game and he showed that he had what it took all along.
You Could Be The Next Jeremy Lin
Linsanity teaches us that if you prepare, do what you need to do and maintain a good attitude and spirit, even if you are despised, overlooked, undervalued, and are forgotten at the end of the bench of life, your opportunity will surely come. It may not come when you want it but it will come when you need it. NBA basketball is exciting again, New York Is buzzing, people are spending money and people are caught up in the feeling of euphoria. That is what can happen if you do not give up.
