Oh, the Knicks

There was a time when we went to many basketball games.  Now I go very infrequently because honestly the Knicks are not that great although it is a young team so there is hope. 

I love the whole NYC community rah-rah.  Hearing JZ and Alicia Keys belt out Empire State of Mind puts a smile on my face.

I love that the Knicks have a multi-cultural team.  A Russian, an Italian and a Frenchman is pretty cool.  Defines NYC in many ways. 

I do love just going to a game.  There is something about it.

What I don't love is that the games have become pure entertainment vs sporting events.  Granted sporting events have always been entertaining but watching young kids between 8 – 12 perform some dance during all the breaks doesn't really sit right with me. 

What I hate the worst is the Garden.  NYC is one of the most amazing cities in the world so why do we have a crumbling arena?  It is an embarrassment.  Like when we fly back through NYC, we enter JFK which is should be updated into this century immediately.  It is also an embarrassment. 

I do love the game but I really wish it would be more about the game…and they'd do some serious renovation and certainly some better food.

    Nice switch from food to NBA…I’m loving it!! The Garden is a pit. Even Carmelo Anthony won’t change that although I’m sure everyone will like watching LaLa take her seat next to Spike Lee. They need to raze it and start over.The production side of the NBA is over the top starting with the 10 minute 100+ decibel look-at-me introduction. I tolerate it because I too love basketball.
