Knicks Make Push for Playoffs – Doug’s Sports Rap
The New York Knicks have an almost impossible task over the next 25 games as they try to make the playoffs.
I know you have to believe in your team, and I am a dedicated Knicks fan, but watching this group play the past 15 games has been painful.
I feel like I just hopped into the Delorean with Doc Brown, and was transported back to this time last year when the Knicks were losing every game, and no opponents had any respect for them.
It's too early to tell if interim coach Kurt Rambis will have an impact on the teams execution, they are 1 and 2 since firing Derek Fishern just before the all star break.
The Knicks are coming off a win in Minnesota over a Timberwolves team that stinks, and they lost on Friday to the Brooklyn Nets, another team that is playing worse than the Knicks.
I like the development of Kristaps Porzingis, but people forget he is still a rookie and has not reached superstar level among the elite in this league.
The Knicks have sign D league guard Jimmer Fredette to a 10 day contract, 'M'eh' I'll try not to get overly excited about this one.
I had to beat a dead horse, but just like last year, Carmello Anthony is killing himself to keep this team in the playoff race, but I fear he's going to end up getting hurt again and missing the rest of the season.
I think they should trade him and get a another low round draft pick and maybe a few free agents with his salary.
Carmelo Anthony will never win a championship with the Knicks.
The Knicks will host the Toronto Raptors tonight at the Garden, if we're going to compete for a playoff spot, this game and the next several will have to be victories.
