Before the season began D'Antoni lectured the media that the Knicks would have to play beyond expectations in order to make the playoffs.
What we've been witness to in the first two games is a team in utter chaos and certainly far from coming in with any expectation to play beyond their capabilities. Hahn reporting Duhon's commentary;
“We’re not that good. We can’t come in here and joke around and take the game lightly."
Inspirational stuff, eh? In other words, playing over our heads is not happening, we aren't good enough to beat a lousy team.
Thank god we didn't sign any PGs this off season.
It is true that the Knicks went down by 21 points or so and "came back" to tie. But the giddy excitement of eventuall taking a two point lead made them forget how to shoot, dribble, and just look like they weren't lost.
The game was a farce and if this is what major market teams have to do to hope to acquire talent then this league and the game is in serious trouble. There is no excuse for forcing this kind of vacant incompetence on fans who expect more.
