MSG Training Camp Special Tuesday 11am Est time...........replay at 9pm Est time
Thank you CA7, you've been the most resourceful poster here; we appreciate your contributions.
I think this team is very different from previous team's we've deal with in the last decade.
Of course it's deep and talented, but one thing stands out.
We've full of vocal, locker room, and on court leaders.
Not only this makes us a better team, but Melo is player who's comfortable on the court without having to carry the entire load.
Every star player is better when they're surrounded by leaders instead of role players. This has been the key formula to success in the NBA.
Kobe had Fisher and Gasol
Rondo has Garnett, Pierce, and had Perkins.
LeBron had Wade, Battier, Howard.
Even Durant has Perkins, Collison and a deep team of voluntary leaders, similar to what Jordan had.
What these guys do is set the tone for the team and establish themselves.
As Knick fans, we know the difference between basketball with leadership and basketball without leadership.
We've seen Isiah Thomas, Jamal Crawford, Eddy Curry, Maurice Taylor, Steve Francis, Al Harrington, Jerome James and many others stink it up in New York. Not only some of these guy's were our CORNER stone players, they were surrounded by LESSER and inferior players as a supporting case, guy's just trying to get a JOB in the NBA. Need a job in the NBA? Call Isiah Thomas. It worked for Qyntel Woods, Jamison Brewer, Jackie Butler, etc and etc.
Excuse my Isiah rant, you guys know how much I despise him...but I hope you get my message.
We have a new Knicks team...and we deserve it. Management has been playing us for a decade and now we have a competitive team that can rock out.
