SAVED FROM SHAQTIN’ By Arthur George-Special to BASN JaVale McGee is reclaiming...
Itâ€™s Getting Uglyâ€¦Early!
And the fact that Lee’s not really an offensive threat makes matters even worse. Before you look up, the team is chucking and missing a ton of jump shots and then they’re down 20 points.
Make no mistake about it, when the Knicks have been down 20 points in every one of their three losses this season, they’ve come back and made the game respectable.
But, is that a product of the opposing team relaxing on defense or the Knicks just woke up? It’s probably a mixture of both, which still isn’t good.
Second-year forward and sharp shooter, Danilo Gallinari has been a bright spot, but he’s young.
What makes matters even more daunting is the Knicks lost the last two games against teams that will probably be sub .500 teams also.
This could be a very long year for the Knicks and they may be fortunate to when 30 games. Because you know with the way this team is currently constituted they will lose big against the elite teams.
But the in common mediocre or bad teams will probably beat them more times than not as well. This seven seconds or less experiment isn’t working so well.
2010 can’t come soon enough for the organization.
But, they better hope for a marquee player or someone that knows how to win. At this juncture I would bet the ranch on LeBron James coming.
Their first round draft choice was surrendered to Phoenix and thus sent to Utah in the Stephon Marbury trade thanks to former coach/GM Isiah Thomas.
If the summer of 2010 doesn’t bare any fruit, you best believe that there will be chants from the stands to, “fi-yah” somebody. NOTE: This story was written prior to Monday’s game against the Hornets.
