There’s nothing like sitting back on a Friday night, downing a few pops and watching the Fat Boys self destruct against the Raptors. We’ve seen it before, we’ll probably see it again. Watching the Knicks isn’t like watching a car wreck, that tired cliche where it’s so bad that you have to look. No, watching the Fat Boys is like, well, watching and listening to the Fat Boys back in the 80s. Listening, because we had to hear them on the mic, watching, because surely you remember “Disorderlies”, right?
But here’s the strange thing about the Knicks. As bad as they are, they will go up against the Celtics and play a relatively decent game, but then follow it up a few days later by serving their asses up to the Sixers, losing 84-124. You know you’re going to get a bad team most nights, but every once in a while, they show up for a game. Let’s just hope that game isn’t either of the two against the Raptors.
Although there is some meat in the paint on the Knicks, the Raptors can still beat them inside with their athleticism, because while the Knicks have some big boys, those guys are seriously slow. If Bosh gets the inside-outside game going again, it could be a long night in NY.
Well, short preview tonight, enjoy the game.
