The New York Knicks' season is off to an inauspicious beginning.
New York has been particularly resistant to winning and grinning lately, slopping and dropping nine of their last 10, including a deuce to those very same Bucks and Cavs.
The team's doldrums look to continue in February, a month that starts off with a back-to-back-to-back against Eastern foes Chicago, Boston and New Jersey, and includes contests against the Lakers, Mavericks and Heat. Oh my. And that's the short month.
What happened to the Knicks' dishing and swishing? Their driving and thriving? Their bounding and astounding?!
Truly, this fall from grace is inexplicable and despicable. It has a lot to do with a matador defense, a lack of slicing and dicing and the ghosting of any posting and toasting.
Forget about penetrating and devastating.
All I know is, if the Knicks continue their stumbling and bumbling, doom and gloom definitely loom and they'll be watching the 2012 postseason from the living room.
I wonder what Clyde thinks of this team right now...
