We enterting a great age in New York
 
embrace it, bask in it, the Isiah era is over. Eddy Curry and Starbury are gone. We have a great team who are very exciting to watch and a MVP contender on our roster. Life is goooood

we said this when amare came... its too early to say but we should wait maybe til all-star break to get a good assessment of our team, though it does feel good to have a dominating team this early

I think Knick fans should be happy and excited.

I dont think you have a grasp of what an era is :lol
This team has accomplished nothing
This duo of Stat & Melo has accomplished nothing
It's only December
There isnt a young studd on this team to look to a brighter future (era)



I heard on the radio yesterday that Woodson is 33-11 as the head coach.

1. This is quite an amazing feet (Rex) considering he isnt that great of a coach (as a whole).
2. This year/last years team isnt that talented (but they are coach-able).

With those 2 factors considered its an inexplicable situation and Knick fans should ride this wave! Marvel in this greatness of what Woodson has done and what this team has done the past month.


Knick fans deserve to stick there chest out some considering the past 15 years.

Woodson isn't a great X's and O's guy but he is very talented in knowing how to get the most out of guys. Traits like that only come from being a guy of high character. He knows how to push buttons without being disrespectful or demeaning. That was the problem with Larry Brown. He's a great X's and O's guy but when it came to motivating his team, if guys didn't immediately "get it" he crossed the line when he preached his message. Woodson holds guys accountable. He puts his foot down when need be. He's blount about the task at hand and each player's shortcomings but he doesn't make them out to be failures in the media...at least not so far. He lets guys know what they have to do to get better but he also makes it clear that he trusts them and is confident they can get their job done. That was my biggest problem with Larry Brown and George Karl.

I agree with Rameek about the whole "era" thing though. What we've done is just above a "stretch". Era is like the Patrick Ewing era. The Bernard King Era. The Clyde Frazier/Willis Reed/ Earl Munroe era. We are developing a trend of consistency about us though. Typically, we beat the teams we should and we always rise up to the occassion for the big games. We don't always win them but we always give max effort. That's the mark of a mature team.

The truth is...the Isiah Thomas era will always be looked back as the low point for the Knicks. I'm not saying whether this fair/unfair to do but it is the era that sticks out most in peoples mind when they think about the low point for the Knicks.

You could argue D'Antoni was just as bad, which he just about was, but no one will remember that because alot of moves were made then that are benefitting the team today.

What positive impact is left over from the Isiah era today on this Knicks team? At least during D'Antoni's time here Walsh was around to get alot done.

Isiah Thomas has just been criticized way to much for people to consider other failures.

Isaiah put together some of the best talented individuals this organization has seen since the Clyde days....
