i'm honestly impressed by this Knicks team.
i loved how they fought back in the Memphis game, and more importantly, i loved how they fought. this team obviously cares about winning, and they expect to win, and when they're losing they take it personally. they didn't linger on the loss and took care of an inferior Pacers team, even on short rest.
the one thing i couldn't stand from the Knicks over the last decade was their apathy to losing. nobody seemed to care, nobody seemed bothered if a star player came into MSG and lit us up, and they didn't mind giving up easy layups and dunks. that was a far cry from the Knicks i grew up watching, and this team seems to have recaptured that fire and toughness that characterized those great teams from the 90s.
