For those that want to hate saying the Alberta, Canada is weak for NBA coverage I've got two words for ya...DISHNET SATELLITE! Come on man, hit google and recognize that here in Alberta, we supply most of the Natural gas that heats your homes, and the oil that becomes your gas. That equals sick scrilla, so get real. By the by, my Wife and I drive BMW X5's (that's a set of his and hers). So please save the the hick comments for a hick. Too Short, Jay-Z and I are all 6 figga...y'all know the rest. Anyways.
The failure in this group is chemistry, but it's also a lack of desperation, no sense of urgency, and a feeling of entitlement. My father has always said "a man has to earn his keep. This should be the new philosophy in pro sport, but more importantly with our beloved Knicks. Marbury & Francis should embody the aforementioned ethic, and make life miserable for those who don't. So far they haven't. What would be your motivation to work hard if the highest paid person at your job sat back and did jack ****. Would you work harder or roll status quo? The sad thing is most humans will/would choose the latter. That is a synopis of the knicks for 7 out of 11 games this season. On paper this team looks like a world beater. However, when they hit the hardwood they become apathetic. Remeber that game 1 ultimately becomes game 82. So for everybody acting like these games aren't important, this could be the difference between the post season or dusting off your golf bag. For every guy that wants to take time off onthe court I'd tie him to the bench. No minutes equals no face time on ESPN, which tranlates to no lucrative endorsements. Hit a guy in his wallet and he will learn. Plain and simple.
