OK, that’s an over-statement. Actually, this time the game means nothing in the grand scheme of things. To me, however, every Sixers/Knicks game means a great deal. Tomorrow night, the Sixers will head into the Garden sitting 2 games behind the fading Knicks, and they’ll begin a 9–game race for bragging rights.
When you grew up in New Jersey and rooted for the Sixers, like I did, you took great enjoyment in moments like this one:
Every Patrick Ewing post-season choke job erased a dismal Sixers season. I lived to watch John Starks heave up horrible shots and sink his team. When the Knicks hit rock bottom, I couldn’t possibly have been happier. Now that the Sixers have seen the bottom of the abyss, and begun their climb back to relevancy, there would be no better conclusion to this season than to finish ahead of the “improving” Knicks, and their transvestite head coach. (Seriously, who wears more eye shadow, Isiah or Nate Robinson).
I’m going to be in attendance at the Garden when these teams take the court tonight, and I’m pumped up. Check back here late night for a slideshow, assuming I’ll be able to snap some photos in between taunting Fat Eddy and Stephanie Marbury. The hatred is back, in full force, and I won’t accept anything less than a win from the Sixers.
Here are my keys to the game:
The beauty of this game is that burying the Knicks won’t help them in any way, they don’t even get the lottery pick they’ve earned with their futility this season, Chicago does.
