If the Knicks dont lose too many more games, we may not be a first rd exit. We get a non healthy Wade vs the Heat, we may see a repeat of 99-00 first rd

If Phil Jackson doesnt join, are all you guys going to the protest?  Cause that's unbelievable if Dolan did that.  How long can this guy go?

Its funny how the winning mind set sets in when you talk about missing the playoffs. Not happy with the points given up but I'll take the win

I know it's a little unfair, but from what I've seen so far I would say Earl Clark sucks.

@Kvdaone  We gave up 61 points to the Sixers in the first half.  These teams are beyond turrible.  Lets see when our schedule picks up

I would lose Boston's game gladly, if it meant getting Rondo.

I wouldn't mind losing them all until the end of the season, if it meant getting Rondo.

@Seth Nadler  Rondo doesnt seem to be playing on wednesday since back to back so we "should" win with ease.

I'm not saying the Knicks are comparable to the Spurs . . . I'm talking about emulating the team-first philosophy of the best-coached team in the NBA.  The Spurs play like a team that doesn't care about individual numbers - it's all about making the right play in each moment.  Sometimes that means you're the guy that gets 9 asts, other nights that might mean you only end up with 2.  

But the question is - did you make the right pass at the right time?  (And Ray does NOT do this consistently - that's worth criticism)
