Ok so i just listened to over 2.5 hrs of Simmons playoff podcast and he had on the so called NBA experts from Bucher, Stein, Hollinger to like 4 other guys. And what surprised me wasnt that everyone of them picked the Cs (I have come to accept that NO ONE IN THE MEDIA LIKES THE NYK). But how blatantly they dismissed us and gave us absolutely no chance. They were talking about how the C's are gonna do in round 2 and they're potential round 2 opponent. Like seriously, not even a 'oh the NYK can beat the Cs if this happens or i can see a scenario where NYK come out on top' Nothing! Are you freakin serious.
I know we got our flaws:
- we dont play playoff intensity defense
- we dont rebound consistently to get deep into the playoffs
But we still have a former Finals MVP and 2 scoring machines. 2 of the top 10 ballers in the NBA and in my mind 2 of the top 5 offensive players in melo and stat. So at the very least we will have a punchers chance and give the Cs a run real real scare in my mind.
If for nuthing else, i wanna beat the Cs just so these know it all experts can shove it. But whats gonna end up happening even if we do win is they're gonna bring up excuses on why the Cs lost instead of why we won. They do that constantly its unbelievable....during december jon barry picked the Cs to win it all, ask him now and hes not gonna pick em, and he'll make the excuse oh they traded Perkins. Well bald genius, when you picked em in december did you say im picking the Cs because perkins is gonna get em over the top? NO! Idiot! Damn i cant stand ESPN and their bullcrap, sadly i have no other alternative!
Im so sick of these so called experts thinking they have some secret inside info or more knowledge than us fans and so what they say is whats gonna happen. It would be refreshing to have a local show to listen to that is pro NYK and gives us our proper due for more than just 20 mins.
