You've got to be kidding me. This looked like a summer league game, with scrubs like George Hill, Roger Mason, Anthony Tolliver... The Knicks should have won this one, but their offensive futility was maddening- couldn't capitalize on the Spurs' poor shooting. No doubt that this is a work in progress, and I second the 'cautious optimism' that D'Antoni has. I'm crossing my fingers that something will go down as far as moving Curry is concerned, either in a three-way deal for Harrington or something else.

As Clyde would say, "the Knicks are wishing they were swishing"

How da heck did Steph make the All-Star Ballot? One could say the Spurs got lucky with both Bowen and Finley lights-out in the fourth. But one could also say, your shooting touch runs dry in D'Antoni's system, making it impossible to win sometimes (i.e. not scoring until 5:02 into the fourth). But really, the Spurs are the Spurs for a reason. It's not just the players, but the system.

What gets me is this team doesn't play one OUNCE of defense. And drafts ANOTHER foreigner with bad back problems! The "DOH!" goes on at NYK FOREVER!
