The Knicks are what they are...a team that is built to get knocked out of the second round. I have been saying this for a long time.
Their 54 regular season wins fooled no one but the Kool-Aid drinking Knicks fans. Acquiring Carcus Camby, a mediocre Raymond Felton, and a 105 year old Jason Kidd during the offseason wasn't going to turn a team that was embarrassed in the first round last year to a championship winner this year.
Mike Woodson is a good regular season coach but he gets easily out-coached in the playoffs by coaches with a superior IQ than him.
Hopefully this playoff series puts to rest all the JR Smith/John Starks comparisons. Aside from game 7 of the 1994 finals, John Starks showed more heart and grit in the playoffs than JR will in his entire life.
This team wasn’t going to beat Miami in the ECF with what they were showing you out there. As much as I hate to say it, the Heat would have destroyed this team and knocked them out in 5 or 6 games. Edit: Why do my posts come out looking sloppy like this? Haven't been able to single space my posts for a long time here.

Humility is a virtue and pride is a vice.
Not blaming it all on the refs because we should not have left it in there hands..... Butt last three games free throws 109 to 49 that is ridiculous
GREATEST KNICK EVER!!!!
Knick fans played for fools by Dolan & Co again.
MIA has three superstars taking lessons than max playing well together.
Knicks have a max player who can't stay on the court and who has played with our other max, Melo, like they were born to be enemies on the court. Not Co existing superstars.
^this fact alone should just put a chill into NYK fans and make us (yall) put down your bravado and drink a nice tall glass of Diet Wake The **** Up.
My words on this forum have never been about hate. It's out of love.
EDIT - after living and breathing NYK through Isiah years, I simply demand better than being fed sub-contending bull**** wrapped up in pretty bows and hype. Is what it is, like KNICKS60 said
hibbert was biggest difference maker and a big-ass flopper. he drew tc attention on defence opened up some easy layups. woody should had played camby and tc. damn I miss kt and sheed.
Melo was exhausted and made those 2 t/o late in the game, and see ya next year....things are going to get interesting asince we have no cap space again
Never thought Pacers would get this far without Danny Granger.
