    RED PRESENTS...

    94' Throwback Special!



    AT THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS ARENA MSG



    STARRING...


    -vs- These Doofy MotherF*ckers...






    The Knicks will be without...
    (*Melo scheduled to play)
    and...


    or...



    The Knicks are perfect at home this season, and are 21-1 under coach Woodson at MSG!


    NEW YORK (AP) - Jeremy Lin was barely hanging on to an NBA job when he stepped on the floor at Madison Square Garden last February.

    He returns Monday having proven he's a legitimate starter and sometimes star, capable of energizing a franchise and a fan base, a player who saved his team's season and was rewarded with a lucrative contract.

    Linsanity was short but spectacular, and even the New York Knicks' locker room is filled with Lin admirers.

    Yet on the court, his old team hasn't missed him at all.

    "What he did was amazing. I mean, I was watching every game. He was hitting game-winners, he was doing all that. He was amazing," point guard Raymond Felton said. "But it's time to move on. We're 18-5, whatever the record is, we're 10-0 at home, so no need to talk about that no more."

    Lin makes his lone New York appearance with the Houston Rockets, who threw big dollars at Lin in July and were maybe just as surprised as so many others when the Knicks let them have him. They could have kept Lin simply by matching the Rockets' offer, which was widely considered to be a foregone conclusion, and the big-market Knicks certainly could have afforded him.

    Instead, they traded for Felton, and signed Jason Kidd and Pablo Prigioni, and nobody can argue now. The Knicks are the best in the league in taking care of the ball - a Lin weakness even during his highest point - and they have the best record in the Eastern Conference with Felton and Kidd starting together in a two point guard backcourt.


    The Rockets are 11-12 after Calderon messed around and got a tripple-double on Sunday.

    TORONTO (AP) -- Add tight defense to a triple-double, and it was quite a game for Jose Calderon.

    Calderon had 18 points, 14 assists, and 10 rebounds to lead short-handed Toronto over the Houston Rockets 103-96 Sunday, giving the Raptors consecutive wins for the first time in eight long months

    Remember this?




    The series was hailed as a meeting of the two great centers who had previously played for a championship in college. In 1984 while Olajuwon was with the University of Houston and Ewing was with Georgetown University, Georgetown had beaten Houston 8475 in the 1984 NCAA Championship game. In this series, however, Olajuwon is generally considered to have definitively outplayed Ewing,[1][2][3] outscoring him in every game of the series and posting numbers of 26.9 ppg on 50.0% shooting compared to Ewing's 18.9 ppg on 36.3% shooting.[4] However, Ewing set an NBA finals record in the series with a total of 30 blocks, and he tied the single-game record of 8 blocks in Game 5...

    In Game 6, however, Rockets center Hakeem Olajuwon blocked a last-second championship-winning shot attempt by John Starks, giving the Rockets an 8684 victory and forcing a Game 7...

    The Rockets beat the Knicks in Game 7, 9084, enabling the city of Houston to not only celebrate its first NBA and fifth professional sports championship (first in an existing league), but also deny New York from having both NBA and NHL championships in the same year. It is also the first time a Houston team won a championship in a league that still exists. For his efforts Olajuwon was named NBA Finals Most Valuable Player. For the Knicks, Riley had the unfortunate distinction of having become the first (and to this date, the only) coach to lose a Game 7 NBA Finals on two different teams, having lost to the Celtics in 1984.

    I know... that was some bullsh*t!

    This is what dudes was doing in the club in 94'



    Cue the Bitches!
