Best excuse for a basketball team


Under Larry Brown, the New York Knicks were bad, and they looked bad. They were still bad last season, and the acquisition of troubled forward Zach Randolph may not lift them in the standings. But at least the Knicks are an energetic team. Last season’s draft selection of Renaldo Balkman brought out the boo birds, but the guy hustles, and so does forward David Lee. Guard Jamal Crawford has no conscience, and center Eddy Curry has the biggest butt in the league, but both can score. Yes, our standards are lower, but at least the current Knicks have been (and will be) fun to watch.
