2nd, how did "all the stars align" for The Knicks
Sheed played well then got hurt and never returned
Stat was hurt most of the year
Shump was out for a while
Felton was hurt
Melo gets hurt before we embark on our toughest road trip of the season, then Tyson gets hurt during that trip and we start that trip off with the news that Stat was out for 6 weeks at least
Knicks got Boston first round who no one wanted in the 1st round.
Kidd has an 0-17 stretch to end the season
Novak took a step backwards
Miami goes on an Epic run that initially overtook us at top of the Conference then pretty much meant we finished no higher than 2nd
oh yeah...our MVP entered the playoffs with an injury, our 2nd leading scorer could not buy a shot, 3 players on our team come down with the flu during EC Semis
This was not a year of aligning stars! Woody coached his @ss off which is why it may seem that way but this was no easy run for our team.
So yeah there is hope for the future!
