    Default Wasn't that fun?

    I've got to say.. wasn't that a fun ride this year? I can't remember a season that I've enjoyed to watch this much in a very long time. To make the playoffs for once was great, and for all the crappy seasons we had, we should be grateful we wont over 30 games!

    I'm old-school... I believe you actually have to win a game in the playoffs to consider it really being in the post season.

    If you're not even close to competitive... And putting aside Games 1 & 2... b/c they were rendered mute when NY got owned 7 of the 8 quarters we played at home...Then weren't we nothing more than a tune-up? Playing the part of the Genrals for the Harlem Globetrotters?

    We got swept in 2004. We get swept again. Our coach tells us the team wasn't in the right mindset for Game 3... first home game in 7 years?

    Please. I would prefer the higher draft pick instead of watching us get swept by BOS.

    +1...

    These playoffs were about as fun as gay sex. I'm being sarcastic if you can't tell.

    I haven't yelled at the tv this much ever. It's so frustrating to have all the pieces to have a good team only to have the coach mismanage them into a 4-game shutout by our rivals in the playoffs. Yea it was a blast, let's keep Antoni and do it again next season...

    I would argue that gay sex is more fun then the playoffs were, especially the last 2 games no homo

    I'd rather be a lottery team and have the chance to get Kyrie Irving or Kemba Walker than getting swept in the first round. A sweep is like no postseason at all or actually even worse, because of the anticlimax.

    The only thing I'm happy about is that we landed Melo in february and the fact STAT had a great regular season.

    Apart from that, not much to cheer about. We don't have a center, we don't have a shooting guard and Billups is not what we need at point guard.

    I think we have about 4 players on our roster that should return next year: STAT, Melo, Turiaf and Shawne Williams.

    Douglas and Carter are possibilities - that would take it to 6.

    Release all other guys, they're completely useless and won't take us anywhere.

    Sign DeAndre Jordan and trade for Chris Paul, fill the roster with veterans on minimum contracts like Eddie House, TMac etc.

    One thing that became obvious in the playoffs is that we need more quality on our roster. Apart from our superstars we have nothing. Especially the bench is way too weak in terms of scoring.

    havent had this much fun since the ewing era... but the fun is over and changes still need to be made... but i do hope we keep some of the bench like douglas walker and shawn williams because i think those 3 gave it there all during the playoffs... the talent and experinece wasnt there but they looked tough... true new yorkers

    Not only was this fun but look where we were this time last year.....

    Now we are heading into the summer with 2 definite starters in Melo and Amare....we can sit on a beach and daydream because it only gets better from here.

    Default Patric Young

    Knicks should draft Patric Young as a Ben Wallace Charles Oakley Anthony Mason type enforcer.

    The Celtics got away with dirty plays that injured both Billups and Douglas (he played with a bum shoulder after Garnett tripped him up, hence his terrible shooting in the last three games, affected his defense also).

    Meanwhile Carmelo gets called for a flagrant 1 for minor body contact on a contested shot.

    But even with the uneven officiating playing field, you can bet that a hard-nosed defender like Young would have found a way to retaliate and injure Rondo or Garnett or Pierce (Davis and Allen played clean and would not have deserved it).
