Honestly! I was more ashamed of the Knicks before

The team Sucked Big Malformed smelly Boabys before the brawl. I am not condoning fighting but damn, they played great last night. These coaches have all kind of ways of motivating a team, we wont know if it worked until after they all come back, and it cost them a hell of a lot of money.They played like a team last night. Gooooooooooooo Knicks.

Re: Honestly! I was more ashamed of the Knicks before

I like the Knicks. I like Crawford, Starbury and Francis. I like Isaiah. I really respected him. But after his inciting that brawl and getting off immacutely, I hope the Knicks flounder into even lower depths than they did last year--if that's possible.

The NBA can not condone courses of behavior as the one favored by Isaiah. His unpunished anti-sportman-like conduct was the root cause behind that mess and, if unchecked by the powers that be, should yield more ugly brawls such as the recently unfolded-one.

Amd the NBA should brace itself for that. You solve problems by attacking their primal causes, not taking the PC, apparently-forceful way out and ONLY disciplining those caught in fraganti!

Cheers, Merry Xmas and Joyeux Noel, all rolled into one,

Your argument seem to be "ANTI" Isaiah. The Knick team that laced up on Monday night, was not the same Knick team involved in the brawl. The Monday night Knicks had heart and a desire to win, they never gave up and I think earned my respect. A lot of fans forget that Isaiah, coached a whole team of bad boys up in Detroit, yet when that team started winning, his methods became back page news. Like I said I don't agree with the brawling and intimidation, but I pay a lot of money for my Knicks tickets and I sat and watched Isaiah, try everything in the book to get the Knicks to play like they did on Monday, and failed miserably. Whatever you may feel about Isaiah, the team that laced up Monday night lead by Mauberry was worth the price of admission.

Re: Honestly! I was more ashamed of the Knicks before

Of course my argument is against Isaiah. He was one of my favorite players, whom I greatly admired and enjoyed watching. But his behavior was insulting to the sport. Really, it made me sick when I read about it. He deserved a penalty as big as Melo's. He was the architect of the damn brawl, after all.

As to the Knicks, they might have had a good game, but don't get your hopes high. Remember last year when they had a 4-5 game winning streak before getting back to losing. They simply don't have a well-balanced team. Isaiah's trades as GM last year were ludicrous. This team will end up with a deserved terrible record--and, ironically, perhaps an undeserved playoff ticket due to the lame level of teams playing in the Eastern Conference. If they crack 30 wins, I'll be surprised.

(I do hope you keep enjoying the games, though).

Re: Honestly! I was more ashamed of the Knicks before

I like the Knicks. Marbury is my fav player since he is in the NBA. His game against Utah was great I hope after the last great games from him, he will go back to the old Starbury and lead this team. The Playoffs are not far away. The Atlantic division is so weak, so the chances are good if they get it together.
The problem, I think is, that they have to many point guards. Nate, Starbury, Francis and Mardy + Jamal & Quentin can play pg too and Isaiah is giving them all nearly the equal time in a game. He should say, Starbury is the PG and the head of the Team. Cause the rest of the Starting 5 is great. With Eddie, Jamal, David and Channing they have a great Team. And if Steve & Quentin are coming back, they only have to play good BBall together
