The Knicks tipped off their season on Christmas Day with a terrifying yet rousing win over the Celtics. Since then, it’s all been downhill, as the Knicks laid a pair of eggs in the first two games of their West Coast trip against the Warriors and Lakers. Probably our fault for jinxing them with this Power Rankings headline. The Knicks, by the way, now include Jeremy Lin, though he hasn’t done much yet. What else happened besides the Knicks starting poorly?
We wondered how much we should care about the Knicks’ cross-river (soon-to-be cross-town) rival.
’Twas a fine week (well, not for the Knicks) and a lovely end to 2012. We wish you all a splendid, safe New Year’s and much success in 2012. Expect Giants and Jets posts on Monday, then regular programming starting on Tuesday.
