Replaced the tunnel with more seats?
History man, history.
Def gonna be wierd not having the tunnel there anymore...
last time I was this bummed about a venue was Yankee stadium, the new place just isn't the same, I hope I don't get the same vibe fromthe renovated MSG
Truth be said....this offseason Stat & Melo should've lost alot of
Knicks-Fans-reps & points by not showing any kind of team-leadership
towards their teammates by gathering all the Knicks-players under contract
for a few work-out sessions in July/August/and September, to create a
confidence alliance amongst teammates from the fiasco sweep of the
The lack of player communication in the Knicks final 32 games needed
imediate attention (injuries is not an acceptable excuse).
Knicks 14-18 compared to Nuggets 19-11 record after the trade.
There is no question on which team had a better player-communication
line after the trade.
Officially (if there wasnt a lockout) the Knicks first regular season game is
on November 2nd vs Miami Heat @ MSG. The 8 preseason games were do
in mid October. The two week Training-Camp wouldve started the first week
Stat and Melo joined a decade losing Knicks organization to show their
superior talent has the potential to have a revolutionary 360 change to
make the Knicks into a winning postseason team. The Knicks organization
will pay Stat & Melo $18M each for the 2011-12 season.
These are the two new Knicks star players fans will practically be paying
twice the price for a seat in MSG. Yet, the two Knicks superstars has not
band together to form a team-meeting or a team-workout throughout the
past 4 months of their first offseason as teammates.
This type of action coming from two superstar teammates who showed no
cohesion of chemistry on either side of the court in any of the Knicks last
32 games of the season makes me think twice on who "Jersey" to buy in
the upcoming season. Lastseason I bought Landry Fields jersey.....it looks
like I will be buying Chuancy Billups jersey this season.
Stat & Melo offseason as Knicks remind me of Marbury/Crawford/Zach/and
Curry offseason as Knicks.....it's all about the $$$ and little about team-ballin.
Is it really a joke-joke about Melo not being able to contact Stat this
late in the offseason? how many Knicks players participated with Melo
in Baltimore Goodman game? how many Knicks-players are working-out
with Stat in his theropeutic (back) training?
Stat calling for a team-workout in late July, early August, were all good
and something positive to follow for Knick-Fans during this boring lockout.
Stat stepping-up to the plate to give Knicks-fans steak n potatoes after
a plus decade of eating Layden/Isiah stale cookies & chips.
The EXCUSE for not going through with the best Knicks offseason plan
in over a decade by gathering Knicks teammates together for workout,
scrimage to gain a team-communication level between teammates (and
the 3-rookies Jerome, Iman, Harrelson), to be fully prepared for a season
physical, mental, and verbally when the lock-out ends....was a poor-poor
excuse (Stat's back injury wasnt fully healed), Why? Carmelo Anthony was
suppose to step up to the plate and finish what Stat started.... Stat couldve
been present not physically participating, but there to co-sign Melo's leadership
towards teammates. Where is the "same-page" theory of having two superstars???

No tunnel? More reason to not like this renovation. Why don't we paint the outside of the Garden silver and add more electronic advertisements by the stands while we're at it. I was weary about this renovation from the start. Sure, it's not even the original Garden, but this one had our championships teams, it had the classic look, nothing futuristic, classy, unique.
All about that money, not about being "real".
Then again.. we ain't won **** in so long... not like we getting rid of some kind of good luck. It sucks losing the tunnel for sure tho.. Atleast the ceiling is staying the same... for now
