The Knicks are currently on a 3 games losing streak and have lost 9 of there last 10 games. They have 2 superstars in Carmello and A’mare, so it amazes me that they can’t win games. They spend all of this money and they acquire Tyson Chandler which as of right now, is looking like the worst decision they’ve made. Was it worth letting Chauncey go? Atleast if we still had him, we would have a solid point guard to help this inefficient offense. Hopefully once Baron Davis returns to the line-up, the point guard struggles will be fixed and maybe we could win some games.
A trade that has been talked about and could be a minor possibility is Dwight Howard, AKA Superman coming to New York in exchange for A’mare and Chandler. Could this trade possibly help out the struggling Knicks? As exciting as this trade would be, the one thing that jumps out in my mind is that Dwight would have to sign a long term contract in order for this to be a good trade. The issue with this would be, if he opts not to sign the long term contract, the Knicks would be giving up A’mare and Chandler and it is not even guaranteed that Dwight would remain a Knick come this time next season.
Is there anything that can fix this team? If so, I would love to see it happen because it’s getting harder and harder to watch this team stink it up every single game.
There is a lot of hype surrounding the Super Bowl rematch of the Giants and Patriots from 4 years ago. This time around, the Giants have a more dynamic receiving core and the Patriots have the incredible tight end duo of Gronkowski and Hernandez. The quarterback matchup of the two teams features 2 5,000 yard passers arguably having the greatest seasons of their careers. This matchup presents a very high scoring battle that could result in one of the greatest super bowls of our time.
Earlier in the season, the Giants defeated the Patriots by a score of 24-20. The Giants were without 2 of their explosive offensive weapons, Ahmad Bradshaw and Hakeem Nicks. Adding these 2 players to the equation this time around presents the Patriots with a different and more challenging problem than they had the last time around. Not to mention, the defensive line that Tom Brady will have to deal with. Jason Pierre-Paul has racked up 16.5 sacks over the course of the season giving offensive lines more than they can handle. With a healthy Osi Umenyiora on the opposite side of JPP will definitely pose Brady with the issue of very little time to release the football. If the Giants can slow down Tom Brady and that explosive offense of his, it will be a long day and hopefully a victorious one for the Giants and all New York fans.
