its always the games they think will b n ez win that turns out ugly. a few that come to mind... miami (w/out shaq or d-wade), golden state (w/out baron or j-rich), the sixers (2wice after they traded AI), and charlotte (twice). if they would have came into thoze games with the same mentality as they do against the harder teams then our record would be 30-25. 5 games over .500 and sittin 1st place in the atlantic. if that were the case the playoffs would be a lock right now with sucha ez schedule we have for the rest of the season.
You know what we knick fans dont need is negativity from people like you man

second... Marbury's knees and ankles are all messed up... he admitted that he can't bring it on the second night of back to backs... and whenever he plays well... the knicks win...
simple mathematics... the knicks are a nice young team... so are the sixers... the knicks play without DLee and Steph is hurt... we get blown out... no big surprise... frustrating... but not shocking... stop panicking so much... it's not like we're an elite team yet... just watch and see...

will this group of guys jell together to make a run??
First of all I started this tread as a "VENT" thread. This is a forum (a place for people who have like interests to communicate). If you don't have any desire to possibly read or write anything negative about the NYK then don't come to this "tread".

How do you think the team felt after losing that game; positive?
Secondly, nothing we post on this forum makes one bit of difference on the teams play. If I write negative or positive it will not make any impact in the teams wins/losses. The players don't read what we write, neither does IT or Dolan.
This is a forum! Thats all it will ever be. If you or I were to stop watching the NYK tomorrow no one would know or care; nor will it have any impact.
So, If you can stomach the losing and remain positive then this "VENT" thread is not for you.
But as evident in the thread itself I can see I'm not the only one who is fustrated at watching the NYK lose.
Thanks for your comments.
In a year or two... NO... we will not be serious contenders for a title... but we will be regular playoff contenders... Also... in two years... steph (22 mil), stevie (20 mil) and malik rose (10 mil) come off the books... the same time frye, nate, balkman and lee get ready to re-up...

It took Jerry West 5 years (and Phil Jackson) for Shaq and Kobe to win...
It took Cuban 7 years to turn Dallas into a serious contender (8 if you don't think they were serious last year)
It took the Spurs 11 years (and the drafting of Tim Duncan) to win
IT has had 4 years so far... give him some time... these guys will get it... patience...
