Watching last nights game at the Garden vs the Bucks brought so much pain back. The pain of the last 10 years has been like a dagger in my side slowly piercing and twisting on through. With all the promise of landing a superstar in Tracy McGrady came another stupid careless loss, a deflated bunch of baboons flopping around the court jacking up 3's and getting slaughtered on the boards, outplayed, outhustled, outcoached in our "mecca" of basketball.
Tracy said the other day that he's excited to be here at the "mecca". I've heard the term, more or less in the same context, been thrown around a lot, that it's every players dream to play here etc etc. I'm really beginning to wonder why anyone would want to come here right now.
There's also this mystique about Mike D'Antoni, that he's this phenomenal coach and that certain players will "thrive" in his "7 seconds or less" system. Last night and in countless games, there was no 7 seconds or less. There were turnovers, there was indecision, there was aimlessness and there was total lack of belief. Let me sum up the phenom coach as best I can the way I see it: "Whatever D'Antoni was doing in Phoenix that didn't bring them a ring there is not happening with these players here and won't bring us a ring here"
Aside from that, I'm beginning to believe the team seriously might have some voodoo curse sh*t going on. It's been 10 years now. I'm trying to figure out who it might have been though that went to Cambodia, met with the old woman, got the magic seeds and sprinkled them on the garden floor though. Is there anyone who might have had a serious grudge against the organisation? How can it have gone SO BAD in the last 10 years? It's been, as Shaq would say...HORRORAWFUL. Lets reflect:
Allan Houstons knees:
Once compared to Kobe, one of the last of the spirited fighting Knicks generation. The best jumpshot the NBA has ever seen. The knees, look at them, they look someone lit them on fire and put them out with a shovel. His contract I believe was the largest in the NBA at the time. Tried to make comebacks numerous times, but no, couldn't do it. Why? Cause we're fuc*ing cursed.
Self proclaimed best point guard in the NBA. Championship rings? Zero. I need not go on about his contract, the sneakers, the tattoo on his head, the tantrums, his infidelity and the seriously worrying videos of late. Why did we have him and not the Charlotte Jimbobs? Cause we're fuc"ing CURSED.
Tried to bring to the Knicks what he had with the Pistons, they had Ben Wallace, we had Jerome James. Fuc*ing useless. Why? Fuc*ing CURSED.
which brings me on to:
Why? Just why? Combined cost over 200 million. We traded away Ariza for Francis, a first round pick for Rose with 3 million in cash. We ended up buying both them out for over 40 million. CURSED
One of the brightest prospects in the NBA, comes to Knicks, stinks the building, revives his career in Miami. CURSED
Jerome "The Junkyard Dog" Williams:
I couldn't believe this guy was a Knick, he actually had the audacity to bark and howl whenever he made a defensive stop, like we were going deep in the playoffs because of this or something. CURSED
Fat fuc*ing cu*t that if I ever meet I will cripple. I can't go any further than that. CURSED
Isiah Thomas and James Dolan:
I can't go any further, there is so much more, I was about to go on to Moochie Norris, Keith Van Horn, Clarence Weatherspoons, Michael Doleac, Zach Randolph, Jamal Crawford etc etc but I can't, the pain is just too much.
The one thing I must give credit for is Knick fans still actually going inside the building to watch games after this butchering. However I think to believe in 2010, LBJ, Bosh etc etc is seriously DELLUSIONAL after all of this. To take a look at some of the examples above then think we will be saved in 2010 with big name players flocking here is the logic of an absolute madman and a result of the mound of sh*t you as a fan have been dragged through.
