I watch every game too. Not a big Dantoni fan either. Can't blame him for Melo's gunning though, can we. I like when Melo passes the ball to open guys, but when he's got 3 guys on him, why is he still gunning. I think we need a coach that will call Amar'e and Melo out. I think we lose an easy 15 points a game because of their gunning techniques. Amar'e gets the ball stripped or blocked quite a few times a game. Why. Cause good coaches see this. They tell their defenders "don't worry about the guy on the wing" Amar'e is going to gun, and so is Melo. You watch, when dantoni is gone next year. If we get a real coach, you watch a lot of this gunning to get under control. Between that and a real center, and a defensive approach. Then we will compete with anyone
Hindsight is 20/20 vision. So yeah, when you see what already happened, its not hard to rewind and say, 'he should have done this or that"
ummm, is dvr only available to new york? im from the Bahamas and my dvr works fine. Ur really ignorant guy.
back to the topic, i fell in love with the knicks and basketball as a whole during the ewing/tough knicks era. and im a loyal guy, i dont switch teams
Well, a couple of years ago a good friend of mine (NY native) has been always complaining about the Knicks, one day he has made a huge statement and said he won't be watching the Knickerbockers any longer despite being their fan for many years. And short after that I decided to watch one of the Knicks games to see whether they're so bad I've been told they are. And dunno how it happened but I watched still more games and became a fan. And my friend is always saying I just filled the space he left.
I was born and raised in Queens but moved to Florida when I was 26 in '06. Now I rep the Knicks in the midst of the worst fans in all of sports. (Miami) Thank god for DVR and the NBA package!
I feel you fellow Floridian transplants cheering NY teams. And we know there are a lot of us. I drive around all day, every day, with a NY Knicks #1 Fan plate. These people probably think "oh no, another trouble maker"....maybe, but at least i know how to drive..lol
Considering the kinda fans we've seen dominating MSG for the past 5 years, cheering on Kobe and Lebron while they crap all over us, I'm cautiously glad that those New Yorkers are not here on KOL!
It's actually kinda interesting that it appears most of the New Yorkers on the site don't go to Knicks games much if it all.
Ive never been to New York but when i came to the states as a young kid i watched the Bulls and Knicks in the playoffs when that Starks dunk happened and i instantly became a Knicks fan. I hope to come over next year and experience the Big Apple!
Born and raised in Lawrence, MA (about 30 mins north of Boston) but my father is a Bronx native so he got me started at a young age with the Knicks and Jets. My other two brothers went with my moms side and are Pats and Celtics fans, so I am now the only NY Fan in the house and its been that way for a looooooooong time......
And I wouldnt have it any other way!!!! GO KNICKS and JETS!!!!!!!
My grandfather was born in NY tho so I always held an affinity for NY. Plus I grew up watching the Jordan-Ewing playoff battles and ended up cheering for the tougher more blue collar/underdog team.
I'm probably one of the oddest Knicks fan in the country. I grew up at a young age watching Magic and rooting for him more so just for the stardom. Playing organized basketball early on I was a bit taller than most kids and was tossed into the center position. The problem was at that age I still wanted to jump shoot instead of play down low. Thus I started watching and growing attached to the greatest jump shooting center in the game ... the great #33. Pretty soon he was my favorite player, and I was a Knick fan. John Starks and Charles Oakley come alone and I have a group of players that make up my favorite team! I loved the group of players from the late 80's early 90's and their style of play. I hated the Bulls so that only made it more so. Now comes the really odd part ... I'm from central Indiana and you might say that the last place I would ever plant my roots is in the Big city of NY. You can also see that during the 90's it was rough being a Knick fan with Miller jerseys left and right every day Even after the 'fall' and the terrible down years I stick with my team. I'm no front runner and I stand by my team in good years as well as bad (Alan Houston helped keep me a lot!) . So here I am ... grown and raised ... but still (even with dozens of reasons not to) rooting for the Knicks. I will be at the game in Indy 4-11 to root for my guys just like I did when I was tall enough to play center at 5'5 :P
