Can you say New York City Basketball is back and once again the Mecca of it all? I and millions of New Yorkers will agree to it!
A night after The St. Johns Red Storm defeated the number 13 team IN THE NATION The New York Knicks defeated the BEST team in basketball, The San Antonio Spurs.
The Johnnies are 10-3 overall and 3-0 in the Big East and have won the Great Alaskan Shootout as well as the Holiday Festival. If they can go down to The Purcell Pavilion and defeat the #15 team in the nation, Notre Dame, they should be a ranked team by the time the polls come out on Monday. IN LAVIN, WE TRUST.
The Knicks are 20-14 on the season and have defeated a lot of superb teams including Oklahoma City, Chicago, New Orleans and now San Antonio and fought strong in their games against Miami, Boston and Orlando. They sit number 6 in the East but with continued play could move up and be number 5 or 4 by the end of the season especially if they add Carmelo Anthony. Truthfully though, why would the Knicks want to break up the good thing they have going?
All I know is New Yorkers have a lot to be happy about especially since this is a basketball first city.
