As I've said in another thread, I'm old enough to have seen Clyde play LIVE, but my personal Knicks best experience is watching King Cartwright Truck and Sparrow give Detroit a battle and providing an epic run with Boston during their HOF talent years....seeing star players not wilt just because they weren't the favorite.
Bernard King 35ppg scoring on well above 55% shooting, and you'd never hear him admit multiple times in a series that he got "outworked".
I've seen better, so this team is nowhere close to my personal ranking of Knicks I've seen.
But like I said, if a title is not the goal, keep it the way it is....not my money.
Damn...You're old lmaooooooo
If you're expecting anyone to be Bernard King...you might as well stop watching. King might be the most underrated player of all time.
End of the day,
We put 6 players 35 or older on the court.
We played 4 guys who weren't even in the league last year
We were on our 4th PF
Our starting SG and PF missed a HUGE chunk of the season
Our best player was banged up all year and playing out of position after being asked to lose weight.
And with all that, we had a 50+ win season. Considering where we were just a few years back, I'd say we had a successful season.
WTF though dude, why am I trying to convince you to be optimistic. Ain't it supposed to be the other way around?
