    Default My Don Legrecca rant Dec6 2012

    listening to Mike Lupica and Don LaGrecca right now and Don is freakin pathetic. Just admit that you didnt watch the knicks last nite i would have more respect for you, instead hes throwing out these generalizations because he has nothing substantial to contribute....


    case in point, Lupica asks him what did JR do when they got the steal on that fast break at the end, and he goes, he shot it for the win! NO! He pulled it back out and they called a time out.

    Lupica says the knicks took alot of 3s last nite and they are taking more than they did when Dantoni was here....Don's response "we'll they better be making them because if they dont, they're in trouble", really? Thats all you got to say about that?

    He and Kay are both ****in pathetic who know NOTHING about ball , NOTHING! They jumped on the bandwagon last year when Lin got hot and now they're doing the same cuz NYK are doing good. Wish we had some real knowledgeable sports talk hosts in the NYC area, someone who was passionate about ball.
    Even tho i disagree with half of what Stephen A Smith says, at least he sounds passionate when talks basketball. Cant say the same about his wanksta and Michael Kay who is the biggest fraud around.

    For Kay during Yankees season I get ignoring a lot of other sports.

    These other guys have no excuse. It's literally their job to watch the Knicks.

    NY radio host are more baseball/football people. The Jets/Mets type on WFAN.

    Knicks will never get that kind of attention via radio.

    David Wright can pull his vagina and be on the DL for the season, that will get more buzz than Knicks winning a playoff series.

    It's always been that way. From Steve Somers to Joe Benigno to Craig Carton to the worst ever, Mike Francessa....these guys don't know **** about basketball and don't have any interesting feedback.

    WFAN needs a basketball personality...not everyone cares about hockey or baseball like that. I'm a Yankees fan born and raised, but the whole MLB format is boring as ****.

    NBA is exciting to follow, you don't know who's going to have a breakout game, season ending injury, what bs the evil ref's are going to do to screw a team, waaaaaaaaaaay more highlight plays than football and baseball put together.

    If I wasn't a boxer, I would be a basketball player. It's just a more stimulating sport.

    I agree. I tune in to podcasts for my NBA fix, specifically The Basketball Jones. That's how I get my news.

    Here's what I tweeted him along with his response:

    (me) @DonLagreca How can you talk about this game for an hour and not even watch it? How did you not know JR messed up before he hit the winner?

    (Don) @DonLagreca @CoreyParrish3 missed the final minutes. Had it on the computer. My bad.

    I can't even listen to the Fan. Fatcessa drives me nuts with his idiotic hate towards the Jets meanwhile sucking Eli off every chance he gets.

    i try to tune in to you guys on a stream over here and every time i listen its always New York Jets. Is it always like this? Its ESPN New York or something. Knicks never get much coverage and when they do its like 5 mins and then its back to the Jets or something else

    yea its pretty much like this, or they'll sprinkle in the usual baseball talk in december. What i have an issue with is how they try to sound knowledgeable and its so freakin blatant that they dont know what they're talking about. All Kay does is read the morning papers headlines and regurgitate what the guy before him said. Fkin clueless, i cant stand his snobbish ass! As far as Francessa, i tuned him and the entire WFAN out years ago, they're stuck in the golden years of the 90s yankees, and the lousy mets.

    Yea exactly they try to play it off like they know wtf is up but it's so obvious that the whole show is pathetic, they're pathetic, it's just a sad thing to do, it's really just being a fat sloppy ****, because it's easy to know enough about the team so that you can at least talk a little about it, it's really not hard, and I mean, you've been around basketball your whole life? I assume he has, to some extent,

    honestly, this is just lazy work, these sloppy ****s just do lazy work.

    well thats a shame. Surely with the population and fans you have there that you could get a basketball station happening or something so its all NBA, NCAA etc

    Stephen A Smith and Ryan Rucco generally split their time pretty well, mostly basketball/football with a bit of baseball thrown in.

    Entertaining to listen to even if Stephen A can be f**king annoying at times

    Francessa is the type of host that would rather talk about horse racing and golf than basketball. His shows are very generic, he goes 5 hours arguing with callers about the Jets, Giants, Yankees and Mets and barely says anything about the Knicks.

    The only time he made the Knicks the leading topic of his show was during Linsanity. He sounded like one of those people who knew nothing about Jeremy Lin until he started to make headlines.

    Its always nice when Alan Hahn gets time on ESPNNY radio. At least the man knows ball and seems to school whoever hes with whenever he gets some burn. Rothenburg is by far the worst tho that guy will ramble over a Rex Ryan quote for hours before saying how solid the Knicks are playing.
