The Knicks in the last 5 years

Props to Walsh, Double G, the Wark, and all others for getting us here: Contender. Take the jump to view our (abv.) journey from Dec. 15, 2006 - Dec. 15, 2011.

Here was our roster on Dec. 15, 2006:

http://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/200612150IND.html

9-16, our starting line up was: J Crawford, E Curry, J Jeffries, S Marbury, Q Richardson

-We had David Lee + Nate Robinson on the bench, Mardy Collins + Renaldo Balkman playing + 15 minutes.

-At some point this year, some guy thought it was a great idea to trade for Steve Francis and play him with Marbury.

Our roster on Dec. 15, 2007:

http://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/200712150NYK.html

7-17, our starting line up was: J Crawford, E Randolph, J Jeffries, S Marbury, Q Richardson

-We still had David Lee + Nate Robinson on the bench, J Jeffries as our 6th man, and Mardy Collins + Renaldo Balkman given time to attempt at playing basketball.

-Small note, this was Isiah's last year. He did give us this on Jan. 3 2008:

"My belief and what I see and where I believe we can go as a team and an organization, I believe one day that we will win a championship here and I believe a couple of these guys will be a part of that," Thomas said before the Knicks were walloped at the Garden by the depleted Sacramento Kings, 107-97. "I believe I'll be a part of that."

Thomas admitted that his comments, which border on the absurd, leave him open for ridicule.

"As I sit here and I say it today, I know people will laugh even more at me, but I'm hell-bent on getting this accomplished and making sure that we get it done. And I'm not leaving until we get it done."

**Strange enough, he might be right (I mean, Jeffries and Balkman ARE on the team..)

Our roster on Dec. 15, 2008 (Donnie + Mike D's first year):

http://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/200812150PHO.html

11-13! Starting line up was: A Harrington, C Duhon, W Chandler, D Lee, Q richardson

-Nate Robinson our 6h man, Tim Thomas shooting 12 times, and J Jeffries running into people.

Our roster on Dec. 15, 2009: http://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/200912150CHA.html

8-16, our starting line up was: C Duhon, W Chandler, D Lee, J Jeffries, A Harrington
-The Cock! Larry Hughes running around, Eddy Curry's 10th game in his 4 year contract, or something.
__________

Our roster on Dec. 15 2010: http://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/201012150NYK.html
16-10!! Our starting line up was: R Felton, W Chandler, D Gallinari, A Stoudemire, L Fields

-TD DWTDD, Turiaf dancing, Shawne pooping. -I HEART THIS TEAM

__________

Our roster Dec. 15 2011: http://espn.go.com/nba/team/roster/_/name/ny/new-york-knicks

UNDEFEATED!! Our (hypothetical) starting line up: DWTDD, Landry, Melo, T Chandler, STAT

-Hoping for the following: More pooping (and Shawne being resigned), Shumps dunking from half court, Jorts wearing Jorts during a game, Bully playing something resembling defense, J Jeffries playing something resembling offense, Bibby playing something resembling basketball, Balkman taking Seth at some point to a gentleman's club (freedarko:disciples of clyde ref, only thing I remember from that podcast, don't ask why).
__________

Seriously, lets compare our starting 5 from 5 years ago to today's:

J Crawford, E Curry, J Jeffries, S Marbury, Q Richardson

DWTDD, Landry, Melo, T Chandler, STAT

So if we could all take a moment to thank the following people:

-Issiah for being so historically bad at his job that Dolan had to fire him

-Stern for intervening and placing the care of our team to Donnie

-Donnie making our team resemble a basketball team

-Mike D trying to make a line up of that included C Duhon and J Jeffries play basketball

-Glen G and Wark doing great job so far

___________

It's crazy where we came from. I feel like running stuffing my mouth full of Cheetos then sliding on a slip and slide I'm so excited. Actually, I'm just gonna do that.
