Sounds Like a New York Knickerbocker To Me
To be honest, I don’t know if I am happy or sad that the Knicks waived Chris Smith and signed Jeremy Tyler. In fact, for the first time in many, MANY years, I don’t know what to say about the Knicks at all. Usually, I have an over abundance of #CoachVon comments to sarcastically drive my points home, and accurately call the outcome of every Knicks game almost precisely. If you don’t believe me, scroll back to years ago when I first opened my Twitter account and you will experience my trash talking accuracy. But that is besides the point.
The point I am trying to make is that I am void of comments lately because it really doesn’t seem like anything matters or makes sense. At least in the David Lee, Gallo, Nate Robinson era of the Knicks I could call the games and predict who would win based on stats, scouting and injury reports, skill level comparisons of the other team, etc.; not effort. Those guys always gave effort, even if there were injuries to key players. They made it easy, for me at least, to defend my home team.
With the 2013-2014 roster, I cant possibly tell you whats going to happen game per game regardless of any reports or stats. Game by game, quarter by quarter I feel just as confused as they appear.
Now, the Knicks have added Jeremy Tyler. I suppose you cant be mad at a 6’10 Center that had enough balls, (according to todays New York Times article) to ‘out of frustration, change out of his uniform at halftime during one of the games (when he was playing in Israel) and watch the rest of the game from the bench in street clothes’. Sounds like a New York Knickerbocker to me.
