There's been a lot of chatter that the Knicks now have the best front court in the NBA which is a far cry from the playoffs last year when we didn't really have a front court to speak of at all.
As a grown man, I know better than to believe the hype before they've played a single game. But since I'm a Knicks fan who's been foaming at the mouth to see a team that can rebound and control the paint for the last decade, I'm diving headlong into all this hype and embracing it as truth! In my mind, our front court is already a Hall of Fame Nominee!
However, as you well know, when an athlete/team is being nonsensically overhyped, they must be given a nickname.
Jump if you like nicknames!As several people have already pointed out, "Big 3" is extremely played out and also quite repulsive considering it's association with the Celtics and Heat. Also, since acquiring 3 stars on your roster is the new trend among NBA Gm's right now, it's going to become extremely redundant going forward.
Let's separate ourselves from the pack, shall we?
What should we call our front court?
Ian Begley already posted some pretty cheesy suggestions here. I was about to roll my eyes and close the window, but then I spied this gem in the comments... TRI - MECCA.
Oh man, that's perfect. It honors the Knicks lore of old with our tradition forged through hustle, defense, and team work, and it also pays homage to our current coach's offensive philosophy with a clever play on the word tri-fecta.
But everyone knows that Posters and Toasters give the best names, so I ask you, what should we call our new front court? Leave some suggestions in the comments, and then maybe we can put some of the more popular suggestions into a poll.
