I'm getting the sense that the Knicks were not his favorite team growing up. Based on past interviews it sounds like he was a Miami Heat fan. His favorite player is Lebron James and he wears no.3 because of DWade and Iverson (see below). I even remember him talking about the Heat a lot in some interviews early on. I went to school upstate and a lot of folks up there have surprisingly odd views of NYC and anything related to it almost to the point where they see NYC as another state onto itself. It's not uncommon to find upstate NY'ers liking teams from Pennsylvania (Sixers, Phillies, Steelers) or across the border in Canada and not be endeared with the popular NYC area teams. The one set of NY team that most upstate NY'ers seem to mostly be fans are are oddly the teams that rarely ever gets considered NY teams if you think about it (talking obviously about the Buffalo Bills and Sabres). And that kinda is representative of the microcosm of NY'ers far outside of the NYC area. If you ask most NYC folk to name the NY sports teams in football they'd say the Jets and Giants and in hockey they'd say the Rangers and Islanders. Very rarely would you hear the Bills or Sabres mentioned (even though the Bills and Sabres have been around since the 1960's and 70's respectively). In fact you're probably more likely to get them to say the Devils (a NJ team) if pressed for the 3rd hockey team from NY than the Sabres. That feeling about being the forgotten stepchild is pretty prevalent and it spawns the lack of allegiance to the popular NYC area teams.


LOL, having been raised in Queens and having moved to San Diego in HS I offer the following observation.

Upstate New Yorkers = CA Central Valley - Kevin McCarthy represents Fresno
NYC residents = Coastal Elites (San Diego, LA, SF, Carmel)

To me I love the duality in both states. Some of my best memories of New York were on drives upstate and into PA. It was so lush, green, rolling, so completely different from Queens/Long Island.

Same thing in CA, 40miles west of San Diego/LA you're into the mountains of San Bernadino on the 395 and you start rolling by "big"towns like Lone Pine/Bishop. That's beautiful country but culturally and sceanically its a different world from, say San Clemente.

Pro Tip - U.S. 395 is the most underrated road in California.


There are a lot of working people in Queens, parts of Brooklyn, The Bronx, and Staten Island. I'd love to see the statistical breaking of NYC voters by economic status. That would be interesting.

As for upstate NY, Syracuse is very conservative but Ithaca is very liberal/progressive and Buffalo just elected the first Black female Democratic Socialist Mayor in the country. Buffalo also has really excellent healthcare, great restaurants, and beautiful old architecture not to mention unique sunsets over Lake Erie.

Grew up an hour north of NYC in Mount Kisco and Katonah, NY then went to college at Drexel in Philly. Have also visited Buffalo for the Empire State Games as a swimmer then both Pittsburgh and Buffalo as an adult at a few sales events.

It's absolutely astounding how different the people are on the east side versus the west side of both states. Both Buffalo and Pittsburgh struck me as "Country cities," if that makes sense. Still a city, but the citizens have a country vibe to them.

Exactly. I've found the friendliest people in our country overall to be here in the Carolinas. First foray I was 12ish. The fam went to Myrtle Beach. I remember my mom and I actually being confused by it. "Why is everyone so much nicer down here?" Ultimately, we both moved down some years later.

I do however miss the pizza, the cheesesteaks, and sheer quantity of gorgeous women from up there :)

when you haven't improved one thing nd the only thing you got is defense you better hope you at least improve that...

Frank was timid, indecisive & didn't have a position. He should have transitioned into a 3&D small forward and bulked up. I believe that is the role for him. He is not a PG and Definitely not a SG. Small forward would have fit him best. But it seemed like the kid was lazy.. His dribble and shot never improved I dont want to hear about injuries I know kids from growing up who couldn't hit a shot from 5 ft away and then all a sudden they come in the next year being able to shoot like ray allen. Then the year after dribble decently. Frank had everything at his disposal. He also never stayed healthy. He sabotaged himself... He seems like a awesome kind person who would do something to help a teammate first before himself and the is ultimately his failure. There is a point in your life where you go its time I focus on just me and get to the next level

She and her mom both said they were only messing around with me. WTF!

Frank must be more prodigious than we thought. Long wingspan, long ... :lol:

the New York City delegation maintains Yonkers as an NYC outpost due to the Lox. the rest of this is true.

Good riddance ingrate. It was a no-brainer for us to upgrade from your sorry playoff-disappearing act.
