Typical New York Knicks and other NY notes

We could have had Eric Gordon, we could have had Bayless, we could have had Lopez....


We took an Italian! I'm not trying to be racist (and this will probably come out that way) but the New York Knicks should not draft foreigners!

Frederic Weis in 1999 should have been our last foreign draftee. He didnt play a game for us and was a waste of a pick.

I cannot believe the ESPN broadcasters were comparing this guy to Derek Jeter and Tiki Barber...this is New York. You cannot compare somebody who hasnt played a game to two of the best athletes ever to play in this city! Its unfair to him! Imagine the pressure!

We'll see how it works out...I mean all he has to do is be better than Frederic Weis but I dont think this was a good pick. I know D'Antoni is an Italian god but we need a Superstar...we're the basketball team in the #1 media market in the world! We need a player who will become world renouned! The second Patrick Ewing maybe...a savior. Somebody we know will be good. Not somebody who could become the next Frederic Weis!

Other notes:

*First Avery, now Straka, who's next...Shannahan? Rozsival? Jagr? The Rangers core is crumbling! Next year could be a rebuilding season!

*To help get over the horror that is the Knicks draft there is usually a Yankees game on around the same time...not tonight...damn  rain.  I hate rain delays!

* I passed the written test and will be taking my driving test in six days! I just gotta work on backing up and I will be a licensed driver on Wednesday!

*I MET ROBBIE FOWLER AND STEVIE MAC ON WEDNESDAY! My dad has a brilliant fake scouse accent! I love it! He used it to get their attention! Brilliant!
