    'Storied' Knicks a tale of losers

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/story/n...-sports-050212

    When Amar'e Stoudemire unleashed a left jab at a glass-enclosed fire extinguisher Monday night after the New York Knicks' playoff loss to the Miami Heat, he might have shattered more than just one inanimate object.

    He might also have shattered the last lingering strands of an illusion most of us have held for years: That the New York Knicks are a glorious organization with a wondrous history just waiting to be restored the notion the Knickerbockers are some special jewel in our proud sports culture.

    Storied? The Knicks? Bedtime stories, perhaps.

    And how pathetic and blind must one be to believe that the Knicks are a jewel?

    There’s also the very real fact the Knicks have tried as hard as anyone in professional sports to be big-time winners, and they have been aided by advantages few others have: the allure of New York City, a thick wallet that New York City and its billionaire owners provide, the buzz and support of the world’s media center and maybe even some help here and there from David Stern, whose office, as NBA commissioner, is in the Knicks’ backyard.



    The Garden itself, the cathedral of the game, should also have helped. It is a holy place for basketball, and that holiness should serve to attract talent in ways that Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Charlotte — even Chicago — cannot.



    Carmelo Anthony, a top-5 player…
    This pathetic and blind, apparently.

    The "allure of New York City"? The "support of the world's media center"? What planet is this guy on? NYC is not alluring at all precisely because of instant and overwhelming pressure from its media. Who actually wants to go to NYC only to lose millions in taxes and be hated by its media, which runs the gamut from tabloid (New York Post) to corrupt (New York Times)?

    Bill Reiter is a glittering jewel of colossal ignorance.

    the point the writer made (one of them) is given deep pockets the Knicks have always had the team have returned little on the court to match the investment. and everyone loves to dump on NYC but fact is more sport trophys live in NY than anywhere else. its a true sports town.

    dolphins have billionare owners since huizenga but robbie was the poorest owner in nfl and team could nopt afford players sometimes

    also miami is only #16 market ny is #1

    I wouldn't go that far. More like Jets loserdom. Dolphins loserdom is almost like a really bad midlife crisis compared to the perpetual futility of the Jets.

    … And the Mets.
