ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo
Giants are 1st team in NFL history to lose first 2 games of season despite leading by 10 or more points in 4th quarter of each game (ELIAS).
winning cures everything. win tomorrow and all this goes away.
How would u feel if u rooted for the celtics and ur sitting in a hospital room with no legs or something and u gotta see a bunch of goons talking about going to bostons funeral and wearing all black? Its supposed to be a time when people can forget there problems and enjoy a game, not be reminded of anything remotley close to what they went through... I don't think its sensitive at all, just common sense...
Like i said, 10-13 yrs ago, maybe i think diffrently, but as i get older, i just don't like tacky , immature acts like that..
The giants were 14pts underdogs not up 3-1 in best of 7.. There was no bombing 2wks before for the giants, and they needed the inspiration or whatever, the Knicks were throuroughly dismantling there opponet, and only needed to win as 9.5pt faves on there home court.. Completely diffrent situation..
JR Smith just gave the team a extra lifeline by throwing the Elbow that got him suspended and it would of been a great time for Maturity to show through on the Knicks, and let people see, that the persona's of guys like Kenyon Martin, JR Smith, and Melo are wrong, and there very professional and simply "get it".. THe knicks just look like ateam that just don't get it...
I just hope they come out tommorow and end this thing, because this series has become somewhat more of off the court stuff, then on the court stuff..
knicks have responded well to adversity throughout the season. i expect no different in this series.
we should be discussing the poor play of the guys on the court, who cares about all the other stuff? we should be talking about woodson's inability to adjust, his loss of trust in pablo and cope, melo and JR's inefficiency of late, lack of ball movement, no set plays, etc. who cares about trash talk or pregame antics? i only really care about what they do on the court.
i personally think celtics players making derogatory comments to melo about his wife is far worse than wearing black... but maybe i'm in the minority there.

IT was tacky time to wear the funeral garb, is all.. And not to mention, ur up 3-1 in the series, at home as 9.5pt favorites, just go finish the freaking job! Why do u need to make that statement anyways? I get it more with the giants, as they were 14pt dogs and making a statement to the world that there here to play and they are confident.. The knicks are the team thats up 3-1 and at home for godsake...
Hopefully this is all behind us, but to be honest, i woulden't be surprised if something else wierd happened...
