Freshmen Filled Future: A Look Ahead

March 24, 2011

Steve Lavin is "pumped" for his 2011-2012 recruiting class

 

An overall successful season for the St. John’s Redmen Red Storm left a bad taste in the mouth of the fan base as the team fell victim to the Gonzaga Bulldogs in the first round of The NCAA Tournament.   It was the first time since 2002 that St. John’s had earned the right to compete for a national championship, a notion that seemed like a fantasy about three months ago.  Nevertheless, the quality wins kept mounting, and the nation’s top teams kept falling, and The Johnnies captured the hearts of many en route to an NCAA Tournament bid.  Despite many frustrating moments, fans like myself will never forget the 10 graduating seniors, as they returned St. John’s to the forefront of college basketball. 

But as the saying goes, all “good” things must come to an end.  It’s now time to turn the page and welcome the number two ranked recruiting class in the country, as Steve Lavin has branched out to all coasts to secure the top talent available.

Get Gilbert Arenas in a Knick Uniform

May 20, 2010

What me... worry?

What Arenas did was stupid and inconsiderate. Having a permit to carry a gun and owning guns is perfectly fine by me. However, bringing them to a facility where there is no good possible reason to have a weapon was plain moronic. He’s obviously, well hopefully has learned his lesson after serving his time.

D Leagure for 2 years?? WOW!

Is it me or does KG aka Big Ticket look like a slug when he moves laterally? The Kid looked like an old man on crutches out there trying to guard my new favorite Knick Earl “Boundin” Barron.

If you can make it here…You can make it anywhere

April 6, 2010

Time for a change

It takes a hardened personality to take on the likes of New York City. The noise, the scenery and the pressure can break even the grittiest of pipes. Everyday, immigrants and out of towners arrive at Laguardia or Kennedy looking for opportunity. An opportunity to establish themselves in a city that boasts a million and one success stories.

St. John’s needs the Knicks

March 31, 2010

 

The Knicks and St. John's have been in basketball purgatory

St. John’s took the right step with Steve Lavin in the attempt to rise up to respectability again in the Big Apple.  Lavin is a well-known name, with a contagious personality who can recruit his ass off.  Norm Roberts certainly did a great job restoring class to the Red Storm basketball program, but it will be up to Lavin to bring in the big-time players and make St. John’s basketball a national program again.  Read the rest of this entry ?
