Yankees 27 did you see the Celtics - Knicks game the other night? Just a preview of things to come my friend. Isiah turned the Knicks into an absolute trainwreck, Celtics might win the conference. ouch

I would agree, total mess.....Knicks are done til 2012, hopefully! Celts should win the east with the Heat, Cavs, and Pistons all there......But the Celts have a real good shot of going far.....

Dude, that was a preseason game, you can't base anything on that. The Knicks last year were a lot better than they were under Larry Brown and were really competitive. I hate that Channing Frye is gone, but getting Zach Randolph was huge. Getting rid of Stevie Franchise and his bad contract was also huge. Actually the best thing Isiah ever did was kick himself downstairs, he's a better coach than executive. He took on bad contracts, but he is a good talent evaluator. His big mistake in that area though was that free agent center they got from Seattle a few seasons ago. I forget his name, but he had one good season in Seattle in his "contract" year and Isiah took him on. But everyone he has bought to New York have been good players. They problem was how to be a "TEAM" because no way could a team co-exist with Marbury and Francis trying to play together.

And you can't glorify the Celtics because for years Danny Ainge didn't know what the hell he was doing. It wasn't really hard or brilliant to get Garnett. Minnesota was looking for anyone take on that contract so they could move forward with youth and a smaller payroll. I think the Celtics gave up a future all-star in Gerald Green. With getting rid of Jefferson, they pretty much gave up on their future to win right now. Time will tell if this was a great decision. But I suppose they were losing so long mortgaging the future isn't that big of a deal.

Are you kidding me? The team is a mess, Isiah is a joke and Yankees 27 is being nice when he says 2012. The best thing that could happen to both the Knicks and Rangers would be for the Dolans to sell.

I agree, I wish they would sell because they only care about one thing ,if they sell out the garden and thats it!!:)

I definitely don't get too excited over preseason anything. I just don't care for Isiah, he's such a toilet. No question the Celtics got old real fast. They can contend for the east, but are old now and have a small window. Nice of Ainge to surround Pierce with vets rather than these 19 year old kids.

The Knicks performed better last year under Thomas than they ever did under Larry Brown. They played harder for Thomas and were more competitive. Not my opinion, just watching them indicates this. This year they were able to get one of the young colts at PF in Zach Randolph, a 20 and 10 guy basically everytime he touches the court. Eddy Curry turned the corner last year and started playing like a man. David Lee is solid. As an organization they may be a mess in the front office, but the guys in the uniforms are not bad. They have to mesh the new talent with old, but I don't think that will take long. The main problem they might have is that there is no older veterans on the squad, so this is where the coaches take on added significance.

And by the way, on that bench, Isaiah is no joke. He may have proven to have been a bad boss to his female employees, but basketball-wise, he knows what he is doing on that bench.

Couldn't we save a ton of bandwidth and broadcast all NBA games in HD if we just staggered the start times and only distributed the fourth quarter of each game. You could also watch four times as many games and not miss a thing.

You could also watch four times as many games and not miss a thing.I enjoy sports but the NBA (Nothing But Assholes) league has messed with the rules of basketball so much you don't even need to show the 4th entire quarter, just the last minute of the game when with timeouts teams can advance the ball so far upcourt you get about 6 "last second" shots a game. OH and while we are at it lets to away with free throws since the worlds greastest players can't make them anyhow and make it official that there is no such thing as traveling in the NBA. Infact lets make it so it's illegal to even pass the ball so all the selfish goons can play the way they like it best.

1. Red Sox did win in 7, 2. doesn't matter if Moss gets injured or not (Brady has won 3 without him and the Pats are in a class by themselves), 3. the Celtics will be good (rather have 3 all-stars, not just one, read: James) and 4. BC is ranked #2 in the country. Championship city!

All Cleveland has is LeBron. The Celtics have a better surrounding cast this season.

The Cs will be favored to win the East. By everyone. They may or may not, but I wouldn't "guarantee" anything.
