Torn right hip flexor. Is it just me or has there been an inordinate amount of injuries this year affecting the playoffs? Kobe tore his Achilles, Gallo tore his ACL, DLee tor his right hip flexor, Rondo tore his ACL, Rose is still out with his ACL tear from last year, Faried missed Game 1 with a sprained ankle, and Tyson still has a bad neck. And that's just off the top of my head.

Sterns "black op's" man!

he wants big market LA in, but not big market NY. Its all about the "Lebroninization" of the new world order.

Nalod thinks that as we pay fewer players bigger money we expect them to carry the bigger load.

Players also want the bigger money.

Maybe the team with the best depth and luck wins.

I can see trade ideas in the summer for

Amare for David Lee will once again resurface
took over the reigns of ZBO as the double double monster with G/F skills with high IQ/Hustle plays
Probably something like

Amare
Chandler

for

Lee
Bogut
Biedris

I thought we upgraded with Amare when we traded David Lee and boy have I been wrong
Although it looked look I was right for about half a season, it has never been the same since

Wow he was massaging his quad on the bench and trying to stretch it out. He came back in and quickly was injured. He said he heard something pop when it happened.
I think we know what we're doing..... Phil Jackson

Now this I can get behind. If we trade Chandler we add Amare to it. Not sure anyone would bite though.

TKF on Melo ::....he is a punk, a jerk, a self absorbed out of shape, self aggrandizing, unprofessional, volume chucking coach killing playoff loser!!

Shame, D Lee is a workhorse, he deserved more than this after all those years of suffering with us.

That's a tough break for Lee. Hopefully he will fully recover and be back to help Mark Jackson's crew next season.
Another season, and more adversity to persevere through. We will get the job done, even BETTER than last year. GO KNICKS!

A big bummer for David Lee. First playoff game in an 8 year career, and I believe, first major injury. He is a good baller and a good guy.

Interesting that 2 of our previously best/favorite players both helped lead their team to the playoffs and both got injured. First Gallo, and now David Lee. Bad luck for both.

Thats why I never understand guys resting for the playoffs, and injury can happen to the most healthiest guy on the team in a heartbeat..

these guys are bigger, faster, stronger than ever before... the season has always been too long but I have a feeling there will be a lot more of this in the future if they don't get smarter about this. How much would it suck to be a Warriors fan right now? What if it happened to Melo?

Just waiting for Amare's annual playoff cameo if we advance against the Pacers, then somehow pulling his back muscle trying to block Psycho T.

the owners made it abundantly clear during the last lockout that they don't see the players as partners, and they certainly don't see the fans as a party worth acknowledging. I wish they would focus on the quality of games as opposed to the quantity, especially when I have the Yankees, Giants, and Rangers and viable alternatives.

My HD channels are fantastic and if Amar'e goes down again and the entire backcourt falls apart again but is joined by the entire frontcourt this next time, I'm certainly tuning out of the playoffs once they get knocked out and watching one of the other leagues I actively follow. Especially if there is a golf or tennis major on tv, etc.

Frankly, no one outside of us messageboard geeks gives two flying effs about any NBA game that was played this season in 2012. The season is way too long for today's constraints and these money grubbing one percenters couldn't care less

Frankly, there appear to be something around 19,000 people a game at MSG who disagree with you. Today's constraints would also like you to explain how people give two flying effs about April or May MLB games. NBA fans are NBA fans; you either like the game that's played at the pro level, or you subscribe to microwave mentality that only cares about the last 2 minutes. Or you're a purist who thinks basketball begins and ends with March Madness. Hockey fans are another example about the meaningfulness of the meaninglessness of the regular season. Most of the hockey fans I talk to are rabid, face painters who pick apart every fricking line, play, check, etc.

All that said, I've never understood the whole entitlement mentality that owners and players are supposed to put the fan first and foremost. The NBA is a business, run by billionaires employing millionaires. Frankly anyone who views fans as more than hobbyists, IMHO, are delusional.

You guys spend a lot of time commenting on the internet?

All sports see a spike in their ratings at the start of the season because that's when every fanbase has hope.

I don't have the ratings in front of me but I would wager outside of the very beginning of the year, the ratings in, say, December for the NBA are significantly lower than the ratings in April. I am a season ticketholder so I also understand that the in New York City you can get 19,000+ to spend a fortune on seats, hot dogs, and beer but I also realize that you couldn't get that to happen in, say, NJ or Sacramento, and few will tune into those games, but corporate sponsorship will be there no matter what.

I watch those games. You need to expand your circle because any bartender in the extended NYC area will tell you that no one or very few were asking for the Knicks game on TV until fairly recently. Ask your favorite bartender about when the Knicks started becoming an actual draw at the bar and/or the last time anyone came in and asked that s/he put on any NBA game in December

Torn right hip flexor. Is it just me or has there been an inordinate amount of injuries this year affecting the playoffs? Kobe tore his Achilles, Gallo tore his ACL, DLee tor his right hip flexor, Rondo tore his ACL, Rose is still out with his ACL tear from last year, Faried missed Game 1 with a sprained ankle, and Tyson still has a bad neck. And that's just off the top of my head.

I think the same rash of injuries occurred during and after the last lockout in (what was it) 99? In the future, for the health of the players, they should just trash the season rather than condensing so many games into such a short schedule.

the fact that you can't even have an unrelated thread without some tool here bringing him up make me think that rational minds are few and far between. Bunch of emotionally weak, angst riddled people. I mean, how many times can you argue the same shyt
