I never liked that short rival with the Pacers b/c we used to beat them (4-1) on a regular, untill they got our (last ROY) Mark Jackson (St. Johns) as their PG.
I liked the Rival between Boston (50 point Bernard King), Miami Mourning vs Ewing, and bumbing-heads with the Jordan Bulls every playoff.
My favorite rivalry was w/o a doubt Miami. I loved being an underdog and spoiling their playoff runs after their superb season next to our mediocore ones. It was then I learned the regular season didn't mean much other than to squeek in the playoffs.
We don't have anything close to a rivalry now, but i can already predict our next one. It will be with whatever team LeBron signs with. It will start with him slighting us, and then be accentuated by comments he makes on why he didn't chose NY.
This thread demonstrates exactly why LeBron will never be in NY because he rather be a Knick-Killer like Reggie than play for NY.
It doesen't matter what he did against us and how. Give the man some respect. He is one of the best shoters the game have ever seen and a class act of the court. A first ballot HOF for sure. Respect Reggie. Yeah I hate him to but ...respect.
This was an awesome documentary btw. God I f****** hate Reggie Miller. It was awesome being at Staples Center in 2000 to see the Lakers **** on him and the Pacers hahaha
Spike still runs the garden.
I finally got a chance to watch this and it was definitely painful to relive some of it. I can respect him as a player these days, but f**k Reggie Miller, seriously... I hated the guy.
That era was the peak of my interest in basketball and the Knicks, and it was great to hear some of the things I didn't know, like Stark's mum telling off Ewing, etc. Was good to see the moments when the Knicks fought off the Pacers, and Spike Lee was pretty good value. Still... Some painful stuff for our poor Knicks.
The very end made me laugh though, how the Pacers reacted to the LJ 4 point play.
Definitely worth a look at least.
