Even Before the Knicks opened the NBA season at MSG on Christmas Day, the City was buzzing with excitement for this upcoming season. This is the first time in recent memory that Knicks fans have something to be excited about. They now have two bonafide superstars for the first time since the 90’s, and the talk wasn’t about if the Knicks will make the playoffs, but what seed will they be and how far can they make a run.
Just thinking back to the 90’s makes me realize how much fun Knicks basketball can be. The rivalry between the Knicks and Heat is one of the best in the East, and now it will be renewed.
After trading for Carmelo Anthony last season, trading for Tyson Chandler this offseason, and adding newly signed assistant coach Mike Woodson, the Knicks look poised to change the culture on defense and make some serious noise in the East.
The season opening W at the Garden against the Celtics only builds on the hype leading up to this season. The fourth-quarter put together by Carmelo was something special and shows all Knicks fans that the future is bright.
The Knicks are back and the Garden will be rocking once again!
