My birthday is May 18, 1989. To hear my parents tell it, they were at a Knicks game the week before I was born. Looking at the schedule from 1988-1989, the New York Knicks played their way into the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals series against the Chicago Bulls. The series took place from May 9th to May 19th. Much to my father’s chagrin the Knicks lost the series and I wasn’t born on the floor of The Garden….I’m not sure which bothered him more. One thing was certain though, I was linked to this team before birth.
26 years and a lot of NYK related disappointment later, I am writing this post a few hours before opening game of the Knicks 2015-2016 season and I have real positive feelings about the team. I believe the Knicks made serious and intelligent moves this offseason that should pay dividends into the years to come. I will use future posts to delve deeper into these offseason moves, player profiles, rantings, and game reviews. But for now I just want to say I am excited to join TheSportsChill.
