I respect Knick fans . Even if your team had very few scoring talents in the last 20 years (other than Pat and maybe Letrell) they played with passion and heart that it is unmatched in todays ussy league .

They even pushed the Jordan-Pippen Bulls to 7 games in the 90s

As Barkley said...

"I Don`t Todays Players want to be Great Players"...they definetly don`t take pride in that

If Barkley collected all the beer/liquor bottles he drank in his NBA career, it would barely fit in Madison Square Garden...

I am a Barkley fan btw.

Allen Iverson, Dwyane Wade, Tony Parker? Go tell that to the guys constantly putting their bodies on the line driving through the middle.
