Damn, the Knicks suck, what are they? The pre-2004 Boston Red Sox? I don't like the Knicks but still, that's just terrible man...really terrible.
Worse, the Knicks are to the NBA what the Toronto Maple Leafs are to the NHL, perennial choke artists/frauds who happen to spend the most money, and be in the biggest market in their respective sports no less and still find ways to lose due to their bad luck, or more often their incompetence. It's no surprise why either team haven't won a title since the Vietnam War.
Also, what is it with voters chosing the player that they gave the DPOTY as a member of the 2nd team All-Defensive team? That's the second year in a row they did this!
I thought what the Pro Football Hall of Fame voters did several months ago by snubbing Strahan a first ballot election was bad (I still think they should be beaten to death with a frozen fish) but this is just ridiculous.
I'll never get these people...
It just seems like certain sports journalists who vote on this things are either that stupid, or have a case of heavy bias towards their teams or regions, which means a straight, honest answer is almost impossible to get from these guys. It's really nothing new unfortunately, college football writers are probably the worst when it comes to voting on anything, considering that most of them have a huge bias towards Notre Dame, Ohio State or any non-AQ team, but that's a different subject.
Better off just deciding these awards to the fans, not that it would be much better, but at this rate, it's progress.
