Walsh drops the ball…again

November 20, 2009

Chris Duhon should never step foot on a court again.

After reading the post — Excuses from The Garden — I felt like, maybe, I’m just not as smart as I thought.

It’s no secret. I have always been and always will be an Allen Iverson fan. I loved him in G-Town, and it’s been a wrap ever since.

With that aside, Knicks GM Donnie Walsh has one more chance to prove to me that he’s not completely retarded. In 2008, he drafted Danilo Gallinari, and passed up on Brooks Lopez. Now, to be fair,  The Rooster may amount to something, but aren’t the Knicks in dire need of a low-post power presence? Sorry Donnie, that’s not David Lee. Read the rest of this entry ?


And the Answer is Yes!!!

MSG bound? Yes, according to AI

Allen Iverson has told associates he is prepared to come to the New York Knicks.

“We wouldn’t be considering it if we thought we were functioning well and we’re not,” Walsh said of the Knicks, who went into last night’s game against the Pacers with a 1-9 record. “And I want to make sure if we do something like this it’s the right thing to do.”

Walsh said if the Knicks do offer Iverson a contract it will likely be for the $1.4 million veteran’s minimum.

I grew up in New York but was never a fan of the Knicks…

I wish this never happened

If you’re a late 20 something male New Yorker like myself I’m sure you’ve heard those words rapped by the late great Lamont Coleman, otherwise known as Big L. Big L for those who don’t know, was probably the dopest lyricist to ever come out of Harlem, not Jim Jones, Camron, Juelz Santana or God forbid Mase. He was unexpectedly taken from us in 1999 when he was slain outside of his apartment on 139th street. Though I never agreed with what he said there were definitely times in my life where I was close to ditching the Knicks. Read the rest of this entry ?


The Life of a New York Sports Fan

November 9, 2009


What a difference a week makes….

Last Wednesday, I was celebrating a Yankees World Series victory.  The first championship in nine years.  To other sports fans, that’s not a long time, but to a Yankee fan, it’s an eternity.  Last Friday’s victory parade was the culmination of a great season, a thrilling postseason run, and the hoisting of the World Series trophy at the new Yankee Stadium.  You couldn’t have asked for a better story.


On this same Friday however,  we also got to see a crowning. But we weren’t celebrating a New York team, we were celebrating King James, Lebron James, as he put on a show at MSG that left many Knick fans salivating at the prospects of #23 wearing orange and blue.  I never thought I would live to see the day when fans at the Garden were cheering for an opposing player more so than their own team.  The site of “Knick fans” wearing ficticious Lebron James Knick jersey’s and going ga-ga at the site of him was disgusting.  But what can I expect?  It’s already seven games into the season and the 1-6 Knicks are pretty much toast.  So on to  2010 it is…..

But wait there’s more.  Sunday at the Meadowlands, the Giants were in a must win battle with their season on the brink of collapse. Instead of rising to the occasion, the Giants stumbled to the finish line, and fell flat on their face.  After an astonishing 5-0 start, little blue has now been humbled with four straight losses.  Now, instead of looking at the #2 seed in the NFC, the g-men will be lucky if they cling on to the final wild-card spot.

The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat in four days…..only in NY.
