    Any news on tomorrow's game? Knicks need to show the league they mean business from the word go. Starting the season with 2-0 would a good start.

    George Bernard Shaw suggested that the greatest wrong against another was not hatred, but indifference, which he described as the essence of inhumanity. Unfortunately the upper echelon teams like Miami and Boston do not hate us -- we're irrelevant to them. We have to change that, but I have grave concerns about our current team.

    Melo and Chandler are stars. Our PG troika, though aging, is far better than adequate. Novak can shoot. JR? who knows? Our bench has the credentials but is old and injury prone.

    I am a loyal fan and have been from the days of Harry Gallatin and Carl Braun, but I am not drinking the Kool-Aid. We are not close to Miami, or even the Celtics. And the worst part -- we have no opportunity for improvement for at least three years.

    We went all in for LeBron and Amare's contract was the principal investment. Melo, despite all his talent, and Chandler are not enough.

    I do not question the quest for LeBron, but in retrospect we never had a chance. Our front office has done very little right for almost two decades.

    Oldtimer deserves a trophy, and his own Knicks column. I nominate the savvy old badger for the first KnicksOnline blog entry this year. Every new enterprise must be kicked off with a resounding BANG.

    Old Timers pessimism is palpable among the old timey knicks fans. Not sure if it's realism or a jaded discontentment that drives such thoughts and perceptions. Only time will tell. Something old timer's clocked a lot of... Perhaps we should listen....

    OR PERHAPS **** THAT GO KNICKS!! MELO GONNA BEAST ON THE BLOCK. BULLY BALL IN EFFECT MODE. RASHEED GONNA KNOCK THE REFS TEETH OUT WITH A RIGHT HOOK. ROLL OUT #KNICKSTAPE ALL DAY!!! Best line up we've had since 99. maybe since the early 90's.. maybe even better... Can't hate on that!

    The Heat are so damn good I think I would go the other way and not say anything to make them mad.

    Their offensive firepower is awesome, will they ever score less than 100ppg this season and I bet they win 65+ games this year.

    Sad part about this is that the day and age of i hate you on the court but respect you off of it is gone.

    KG/Sheed/Wade/CP3/Kobe/Rondo- Are the only people left like that.

    Raymond Felton
    Amare Stoudemire
    JR Smith
    Iman Shumpert
    Steve Novak
    Marcus Camby
    Jason Kidd

    I'd take that lineup on paper for my 2K13 association over Miami or Boston.

    I think we are a mean team. Chandlers a mean guy, hes sets dirty picks on smaller players. I consider Carmelo to be a dirty player, I see him shove other players alot. Feltons got some bully in him too. I dont even have to anything about Sheed, Kurt Thomas is real physical. Shump talks trash, JR showboats. Novak hot dogs as well
