    they're the 7th seed for good reason, they're simply not that good. they are good at home though... but we beat them last time in their building when they still had rondo and everyone healthy. i'm just tired of everyone acting like they're some team we should fear. we are not the crappy knicks of years past and they are not the legit contender they used to be.

    i think we beat them in both remaining games we face each other, and do so convincingly.

    the grizzlies are also not nearly as good without gasol... he is a beast and they will miss him big time.
    Without Garnett they better win both of them.

      as far as memphis, they're gonna get worked too without gasol.
      its not so much thinking boston's that good, as i am not yet sure this knicks team is anything to write home about.. Our most recent win streak is against the raptors twice, magic, and j***, who were on a 5game losing streak or so before they beat philly ... Not one of em are over 500, and the only one thats close is Utah, whos a game under after beating philly last night..

      Before this 4game win streak against these nobodys, we were wretched and/or mediocre for about 2months...

      So, i'm not sure if that 4game win streak is actually us playing better or if its just us playing putrid basketball teams that aren't even worthy of mentioning? Boston is worth mentioning, regardless of there losing streak.. So in my opinion, its a big wk for the knicks, becasue Boston twice, memphis, and charlotte is like Michael Jordan's Bulls teams compared to the crap we've been beating on this win streak.. I threw in Charlotte because there playing them, not putting them in any good category..

      • so utah is a .500 team in the west and they're putrid but boston is barely over .500 in the east and they're not?

        i understand what you're saying about not having faith in this team though, i've known that for awhile now.

        • I still dont get why Corey Brewer wasnt good enough for the Knicks.

            i hope they beat them twice i will feel a lot better about playing them in the playoffs.Beating them twice might push them to 8 actually.Cant wait for the upcoming Miami game I hope they still have the streak going. I hope all the rich NY'ers buy up all the tickets and get down there. Man I wish that game was at the Garden. I think they would beat them if it was. If Melo has 1 locked in game they could take them down.They need a 18-25 shooting night
            I still dont know if the Knicks will hold off the Nets who are playing well on the western trip. If the Nets go 5-3 or 6-2 that wont be good with the Knicks schedule .It would set up a nightmare first round match up with the Bulls. They didnt beat Chicago this year.

                that's on dantoni. he wasn't gonna play him so we released him as a favor to his agent who i think was melo's agent too, i forget... i remember thinking he was a nice piece with possible upside as a former lotto pick when we got him in the melo deal... then we just let him go. dallas picked him up and he played ok for them but got no burn in the playoffs..

                JR is playing amazing ball. he has 21 points and he's only taken like 2 or 3 jumpshots. he's constantly attacking the rim. like i said before it's as if a light bulb went on in his head. if he plays like this in the playoffs we'll be a very tough out. he's our X factor.

                we all know he can get hot from 3 and make those contested step backs, but he's no longer relying on them to score.

                      true. i pray he takes what we can offer and we pay him under the table haha. he's from jersey so i know he wants to stay here but if someone throws crazy money at him it would be hard for him to turn it down.

                      how about that shot at the buzzer? JR tha Gawd lol giving the celtics the pipe.

                          U think he would get more then 4 years 24 i think thats the max they can offer. I doubt a team would pay him more then that.I just hope a team doesnt structure it to screw us over

                            Yes.. Boston beat Utah both times dude... I suppose that might not be better in ur mind, but when u play a team twice, beat em twice, i think ur the better team personally..

                            And all i said, is this is a big wk for the knicks , as we beat 4crap teams, and i want to see how they play against some solid teams this wk before i start believing there back to playing like they did early on in the season, which was a long long time ago now.. From Dec 17th to March 18th, they were under 500.. Sorry, thats along time, and it takes alittle more then winning 4games against sub 500teams before u start believing again.. I mean in a 3month span, this team was a under 500team.. Even now, we still have yet to beat a 500team on this win streak..

                            I don't believe in something just for sake of believing because its my team.. I believe in teams that look worthy on the court, and simply hope my team gets better and plays better..

                            They have looked great over this 5game win streak, and as i said, if they have a big wk with Boston twice and memphis, im gonna start believing they are back on track, and i never would of guessed Kenyon Martin would of had this kinda impact, i just never seen it coming, as i've said to u more then once now..

                            This was a big test to me, even thought Boston dosen't have Garnett, and they passed the test.. I wanted to see them go 3-1 this wk, and they just might do it..

                            I mean, its not hard to see why u would lose faith in a team that was like under

                              Brewer would of played for Woodson. 2 bad they didnt hold on to him.

                                Ya, but this team winning like this regardless of Rondo and Garnett missing on RD is still impressive to me.. First and foremost, this team has lost alot of games they should of WON this yr, so coming out and taking care of bussiness even though they should, is still a achievement in my opinion.. But ya, it would of been even better had they had more then Pierce and thats about it, but still..
