Giants Draft Prince (Not Prince William or Prince Prince)

(via SNY)

Every little girl wants to marry a prince, but when I was little I wanted the Giants to draft one. Dreams do come true with the Giants drafting Prince Amukamara, CB out Nebraska with the 19th pick of the first round.

Aaron Gray, Mother Effin Monster

(via Doc Funk)

Aaron Gray moaning during game one against the Lakers was probably my small non meaningful moment during the playoffs so far. On a semi related note, is there any white big men in the free agent/draft pool of the Chris Dudley ilk that the Knicks can pick up? Not just because the Knicks need a big but the unintentional humor of having a white center on the roster has severely lacking since the Knicks since Mozgov was included in the 'Melo deal.

Donnie Walsh Staying Is Cause For a Ticker Tape Parade

Donnie Walsh is staying, Toney Douglas is staying, Mike D'Antoni is probably staying. I think Amar'e and 'Melo are going to stay too! Here's to stability! No word on Billups yet but I can't imagine him not a Knick next season, there's not like there's a huge upgrade at the point waiting out there to be picked up.

And With That, It's The NBA Offseason

And so it's over, the Knicks fell to the Celtics in a game that I kind of half watched, mostly on a kitchen tv at my Grandmother's during Easter dinner. I think we've seen this story like 60 times this season - Knicks fall behind early, mount a second half comeback, get really close (this time within 4) but can't get over that hump, and fall short to in this case was a superior team. Yesterday wasn't without it's highlights, especially the efforts of one Mister Anthony Carter who post Billups injury should have had way more burn in this series but I guess it took a little bit to click with Mike D'Antoni that DWTDD and Roger Mason aren't quite point guards. But Anthony Carter wasn't going to make it a series after those two scares in Beantown, the Celtics came back to MSG and played like a team with 3 Hall of Famers and an All Star point guard against the Knicks of Carmelo Anthony, Amumm'y Stoudemire and a depleated bench. So the Celtics got themselves a sweep and the Knicks got themselves step one in a quest that ends with them being a contender for the NBA title. It's hard to get super angry about this sweep after almost of decade long playoff drought and knowing that the two main pieces are in place to keep the Knicks in the playoffs for the forseeable future, now let's re-up Donnie Walsh and bring in the right kind of players to compliment Stat and 'Melo, so maybe we can win a series or two in the spring of 2012. And that photo above, that's why you keep Renaldo Balkman over Corey Brewer.

Garden Party, Garden Funeral

(via Got Em Coach)

There's a couple of images that can tell the story that played out last night at MSG - Amar'e wrapped up like a mummy and obvious pain, 'Melo getting doubled every single time he touched the ball (or so it seemed), a lot of Knicks afraid to take a big (or any shot, really), and the Boston Celtics finally being exposed for what they are, a really good playoff tested veteran basketball team. On the way back from the Garden, my first thoughts stand true - the Knicks with Amar'e at 100 %, Billups at 100 %, Landry Fields playing at Landriest, etc were in for an uphill climb against Boston but a depleted Knick team, it was only a matter of time that the Celtics did this to them. Of all those fun images, I choose STAT and can't agree with the metaphor on Got Em Coach any more than I already do - " For so long this season, he quite literally had to carry the franchise on that 6’10” frame - the incompetent owner, the coach under fire, the new teammates, and the desirous eyes of New York City - and it finally gave out." Game 4 is Sunday at MSG, let's hope that all that weird angry/depressed energy is gone by then.

More Knick Heartbreak

(via NY Daily News)

That one hurt, a lot. On the back of Carmelo Anthony, the Knicks or rather, the hog pog of Toney Douglas, Jared Jeffries, Billy Walker, and Roger Mason Jr came within a KG strip of Jeffries of an upset in TD Garden. Instead it's back to MSG down 0-2 with the health of our veteran point guard and 100 millon dollar power foward in doubt for game 3. We all know that the Knicks probably shouldn't have been in that game at all but Melo had an all time Knick playoff performance, 42/17/6/2 with the combined 2nd and 3rd unit for the Knicks, he was not of this planet during the 2nd half. That dude was worth the trade, and I having a feeling this is just the start. It's hard not to be disapointed here but with Amar'e and Billups out, Landry Fields MIA, and two of the three heads of our center cut off but there's still a decent amount of pride to be had in this Knick team. And let's be honest, this is what we all wanted, we all wanted playoff basketball and as bittersweet as it's been so far, its better than the alternative of just watching Heat/76ers. I know there's no such thing as moral victories in the playoffs but taking the Celtics to the limit on their home floor was something. Playoff basketball is coming back to Madison Square Garden on Friday night, let's take back home court.

It Was Heartbreaking But At Least We Have a Heart To Break

So this is what losing in the NBA playoffs feels like, I kind of forgot after such a long lay off. Straight off the bat, the offense foul on Melo and the non calls on O'Neal killing Billups on knee buckler and Garnett tripping up Toney Douglas is going to be the norm when a team that hasn't made the playoffs in forever goes up against the defending Eastern Conference champs, it's kind of crummy but it's just the way it's going to be. But in a game where Melo and Billups didn't really show up and the Knicks being in the lead for most of the game is kind of a positive, right? Amar'e was without a doubt the best player on the court last night playing like the first half MVP that started this run to the playoffs as you can see in the youtube clip above. Toney Douglas hit his patented "don't shoot that three, Toney" three in the forth, the two headed center of Turiaf/Jeffries handled it's business for the most part, and Bill Walker was bullying off the bench after Carmelo's quick fouls in the first but it's all for naught with a KG alley that took no time off the clock and that Ray Allen dagger. It was a heartbreaker, I kind of remember what games like this felt like.

The Road to Playoffs for the New York Knicks

With the 2010/2011 NBA season coming to a close today, I think I watched this recap of the Knicks season about 14 times in the course of Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. And even though I would have liked some Gallo/Will/Ray/Mozzy footage, those Knicks happened a lifetime ago. Starting with STAT signing last July, Mozgov getting dunked on by Blake and the Knicks still winning, the 7 game win streak in November/December, Amar'e hitting that last second three one second too late against the Celts, that huge victory against the San Antonio Spurs, Landry Fields beating the Heat at the Garden, the pre trade Melo-drama, the post trade Melo-Drama, the block on Lebron in Miami, loving/hating/loving Chauncey Billups, the maturation of Toney "DWTDD" Douglas, the carousel of "big men," the 6 game losing streak, and this most recent winning streak to close out of the season, I think we, Knick fans can all say it's been a long season but more imporantly, a winning season. And now, here comes the Celtics in Round One of the Knicks first playoffs series since 2004. Let the real fun begin.

The Knicks Will Have Won More Games Than They Lost, Yeahhhhh!!!

(via Knick Fury)

Carmelo Anthony does that again with another game winner, this time against the Hoosie.. Indiana Pacers. Really between Hansborough, Josh McRoberts, Mike Dunleavy, and Jeff Foster, I don't want to be all like "white guys playing basketball" but it's kind of crazy seeing at least two of the four white guys on the floor at one time for a team and Danny Grangier. Save Melo's dramatics at the end of the forth, the most definite highlight of last night's game was Jarred Jeffries hitting a corner three, talk about Indiana Mister Basketball for the year 2000. Oh and Stat looking all dapper once again with a suit and a walking boot, I know it's just a sprain but it still makes me nervous. Alright, so last night was seven straight wins for the Knicks with the sixth seed almost locked up and a first round match up with the Boston Celtics looming. Go New York! Go New York! Go! Right?
