Dear Mr. Dolan and Mr. Walsh,
Thank you Mr. Dolan for your commitment to making the NY Knicks relevant again.
Thank you Mr. Walsh for your efforts in bringing Amare Stoudemire here.
As a long time Knick fan, this is the best news I have heard in quite some time. Building the team around this star player is a great step in the right direction.
The signing was extremely smart because bringing this type of talent and class to New York will make it possible for future free agents to come here. The basketball season can not get here quick enough. When healthy, Stoudemire is a dominant force and makes this Knick team so much better than a year ago.
I understand that winning a championship next year is too much to ask, but I know the team will be much more competitive. With the additions of Felton, Turiaf, Azubuike, Mozgov and Randolph I think 40 - 45 wins is a good possibility. I would expect them to at least get a taste of the playoffs.
Madison Square Garden is such a magical place that deserves a lot of respect. To me basketball is not just a game it's a way of life. New York has not seen a winning team in such long time. The Knick teams of the 90's never won a championship, but there was a fire that kept burning every night they took the floor. I'm excited of the possibility of getting that back!
I remember when the NY Knicks were feared around the league. Unfortunately, fear has been absent for quite some time. I am really looking forward to this coming year. I want that electricity back. I can't wait to feel the Garden shake again and to cheer for a competitive team.
Let's make 2010-2011 the "New Era" for the New York Knickerbockers with Amare Stoudemire leading the way!!! Let's bring real basketball back to the Garden. Let's show Madison Square Garden the respect it truly deserves. More importantly, let’s get this Knick franchise back on track again. A new season is approaching us very soon and the team's future looks much more promising.
Once again, Thank You Mr. Dolan and Thank You Mr. Walsh.
Alexander Georgalas = Very Happy and Long Time Knick Fan!!
