But this team just has to be decent on the road to make the playoffs they haven't looked good on the road so far but hopefully that'll change i used to be all about tank squad but now that this team is showing heart and the youth are developing and exuding confidence let's get the 7th seed and upset the Ledivas. Is there gonna be a huge difference between the 13th and 18th pick anyway??!


If they win the next game and then take vengeance on Houston, this forum will make a bag of dicks look like baguettes in a laundry sack


I'm not sure what this means but you're not a real team to be taken seriously until you start winning games on the road.

This is a reference to Charles Barkley saying this about living people, i.e, Knicks being blown out - "Patrick Ewing is rolling over in his grave".

Watch more television.

Indeed.

That a cultured man such as yourself would take time away from Sir Charles to grace our humble forum with your learned presence is truly a great honor we shall all cherish forevermore.

Watching NBA on TNT means I am an uncultured swine apparently. Didn't realize watching NBA entertainment was beneath you. Sorry, I should add more 'culture' to my life. I'll put on Downtown Abbey just for you.

Or something more along your lines - Matlock?

I'm sure this is where you get your wonderful wit from.

You pick fights poorly.

You went after someone known here for their ability to spin a phrase with some elevated notion that you are the arbiter of excellence when it comes to the usage of the English language.

You invoke Clyde, who is my sports hero, in order to insult me while thoroughly misunderstanding who Walt Frazier is.

He is a basketball legend, a character writ large and a gracious man of great charm. He is hardly a bard and is actually possessed of a modest wit so dissing someone by measuring them up against Clyde's thesaurus-bound rhyming couplets is hardly a compelling indication of your skill at literary analysis.

And when you were given the shove back you brought upon yourself you folded like a wet rag and switched from being a high falutin wannabe know-it-all to saying "Watch More Television" so please back the eff up and find somebody else to mess with because you're not really as smart as you think you are.

I met Clyde. He's an amazing man. I love him. I'm glad you love him too. But you post very much unlike Clyde. You're pompous and arrogant and talk down to many on the forum. You talk in riddles and try to pretend you're wittier than half the forum. You're not. Tone it down a notch - or not. I don't care. But take that 'chit' to someone who cares.

I don't care about your opinion at all. You have not distinguished yourself so keep it to yourself from now on. You came at me so stop whining.

I'm expecting this team to end up in the late lottery around pick 12

Wake up folks. Road game equals loss doesn't matter the opponent. Mvp is the home crowd. Jeff sucks at coaching as well. It shows on the road when it is needed.

Their road record is 1-6 after tomorrow

The win was against Cleveland, a good road win

4 losses have been to good teams OKC, Toronto, Boston, and after tomorrow's loss, Houston. No shame in losing on the road to those teams.

The other two were Orlando, but KP didn't play. And Atlanta one was truly the only bad loss and they should have found a way to win even without Kanter. The verdict is still out but they have to start getting it done on the road against lesser teams.

Return to New York Knicks
