Maybe all the bad press can be a good thing? Maybe it fosters an us-against-the-world attitude that turns around the me-only cancer?
Forget the record after 20 games, especially given the killer starting schedule.
What I would like to see is 48 minute effort, a bit of a mean streak, of controlled fury, play the wrong way, usher in a return of Pat Riley no-layup attitude.
Forget the team huddles for Christian prayer, I would rather see a bit of Rodman D(evil) worship - f* the Bush Crack(er) House - a bit of Osama attacked NYC not Amerika mutha - 911truth - fire the Pinkertons hire the Panthers - flavor flav NWA straight outa Compton IWW scare the corporations Che Guevarra Rage Against the Machine Hugo Chavez Jimmy Hoffa street cred rollerball. Something edgy and hip.
That might not be a bad thing for a team that lacks identity and team spirit and a city on the verge of Dark Angel style insurrection against the false flag duopoly of the party of genocide (R) and the party of liberal gentrification (D).
And maybe that is the real reason Larry Brown failed here. Something that the league and Dolan and the yuppies in row 6 might not want to talk about.
Not my usual basketball-first analysis but (I hope) an entertaining post to read.....
