Joe Johnson, meanwhile, is averaging 16.3 ppg, 3.6 apg, and 3.0 rpg @ more than $19 mil this season as the Nyets' go-to-guy. Now I know some players can get WAYYYYY overpaid, but you have to agree that JR deserves more than 2.5 mil after the growth as a player he has shown this season.
Yeah my father's the only one in his family that is a Jets/Mets fan....he was at the AFL Championship vs Oakland in 68, he became a big Namath fan and grew up with Jets huge upset over Colts in SB III and the Miracle Mets so that's how he became a fan of those teams despite growing up in the Bronx.
Its cool though ..... I bleed Green and White/Orange and Blue (Knicks) wouldn't change it for the world despite all the success the Giants have had. I wont lie, its been rough the past decade with Patriots run they've had, but half their fans didn't exist prior to 2001 so I say Fck them and will go toe to toe with any of those arrogant, sun shine bandwagon fans LOL I started following the Jets in the Esiason/Pete Carroll years and Kotite years......no way I am changing teams if I were even capable of it now!
I honestly didn't have anything against the Celtics though until a couple years ago since they sucked in the 90s when Knicks had a strong squad and were legit contenders......then when we went through the post Ewing era and Isaiah years they emerged with Pierce, Walker, Anderson then Pierce, KG, Allen ....... wasnt until the playoff series two years ago when KG tripped TD to free Allen for GW 3 in game 1 when I started hating them. I only truly hated Miami and Indiana up until that point (hated Chicago too but atleast respected them).

here is an article (bleacher report....but still something LOL) I found quick with a google search talking about the bargain Knicks were able to retain JR for by him accepting his $2.5mil player option - [Only registered and activated users can see images. Click Here To Register...]
