Amare Stoudamire, after his team gets whacked, comes out and says the Knicks have more talent than the Spurs.
We are not Spurs homers by any stretch here. You know that. The Knicks might actually have more talent, on paper than the Spurs.
But San Antonio waxed that fanny last night…and the Knicks suck. The Knicks aren’t a good team. Sure, if you wanted to play 3 on 3, the Knicks might win a lot of games. The NBA doesn’t. The Knicks suck and they show no signs of playing as a team.
Meanwhile, have we seen the meteor of Linsanity plunge into the ocean depths? Have you noticed Linsanity is no longer getting 24/7 coverage? Have you seen how Linsanity is not ESPN’s lead-in story anymore?
Two things happened: Carmelo Anthony returned and assumed his primary position of ball dominator. Next, the Knicks are playing better competition. The Mavericks and Spurs are not the Wizards and BobCats. The Knicks aren’t going to look good against teams that can play.
