    I Try to be a Knicks Fan

    I try to be Knick fan. I know it’s hard to believe in a team that routinely takes games off. You see teams around the league that might not be that great. Still, the players on these ‘mediocre’ teams fight for every win. Despite all the doom and gloom these days, the years of Isaiah Thomas and Stephon Marbury, the controversy surrounding Madison Square Garden, there has to be a silver lining. There just has to be. I am not known for being on the positive side in these ‘Chatterboxes,’ but here, to all SB Knick fans, I offer hope for the future. Just look at the Celtics last season. They truly were down in the ditches. Paul Pierce was frustrated, and Coach Doc Rivers was feeling the heat. This season, the Celtics are a completely different story. Now, I’m not saying that the Knicks are going to get another Kevin Garnett-esqe player, hardworking and amazing. It might even take a couple of years before the Knicks actually become a good team again. I don’t really know if the right changes will be made. I mean, Stephon Marbury, the ‘point guard’ for the Knicks, has only one more season after this year. Sooner or later, Isaiah will realize that Eddy Curry will never be Shaq and decide to just not play him. If Marbury and Curry go, then I think the Knicks have a fighting chance to develop under the leadership of Jamal Crawford and Zack Randolph. And by the time LeBron Wade is on the market (2009 summer), the Knicks will be salary-cap-happy, and Knick fans will actually have a real team.
