New York sure has a way of “BREAKING” in superstars players or should I say breaking down their will. Carmelo pretty much looks defeated here after last night loss to the Boston Celtics. Its not really the fact that they lost to clearly a better team but how they lost; It was embarrassing. They lead most to 4th even though Melo and Amare were virtually invisible the whole quarter. And then there’s the big gash left on Melo face to add injury to insult.
Well, the honey moon is officially over. It’s already been a tough past two weeks for Carmelo and the Knicks leading up to last night. With the loss they are 1-6 in their last 7 games and they’re facing more criticism than ever which isn’t a surprise to me but did everyone really expect things to be easy? Just look at Miami. They’ve had their share of up and downs with the whole season to build a team. Knicks have had about a month.
Madison Square Garden my be the best place to play but its proven to be the toughest place to succeed for it’s own team. But like they say if you can make it NY, you can make it anywhere. When Carmelo will “make it” in New York remains to be seen. I just hope he’s strong as he claims because this is the only beginning.
People already are starting to hate on the trade; some of the same ones who were celebrating when it happened. I guess that that LOVE/HATE relationship Knicks fans are characterized by. It just makes me wonder what it really takes to win as a Knick with the burden of the games most impatient fans reinforced by high expectations placed on the organization. I mean, really are they cursed or what? I want this trade to work out soon, more for Melo’s sake than the city’s cause he’s a good guy unlike say….Marbury. I don’t think he’s the problem but last nights game was ugly. I’d say they hit rock bottom since the trade with a record of 7-9. Good thing is they can only move up from this point. Then again they do play the Magic today….
Oh really….well thanks for the follow. But yea, the Kobe hate just comes naturally haha. I don’t wanna be a hater but sometimes he makes it too easy.
lol and you know this
Even more than Kobe…
Knicks just might let it slip away
