Okay, first post, don't go accusing me of trolling or bandwagoning or such. I don't post much. Long suffering, from the days of Patrick, Oak. I still hold a grudge with OJ since his White Bronco Experience sent Starks into a tailspin and cost me a parade on my doorstep. Chump.
Been in the bay area for a while, I don't dig GSW and their entertainment experience. I worked a gig in the NBC truck for the 2000 all-star game, all access, that was a nice little perk. Cohan was a creep and he heard it. Glad to see him go, but I got a feeling the new guys may just want to play real estate games. Boring.
NYK visits once a year, that's about it. Spree's homecomings were epic, the Isiah years were pathetic. I'm fairly cool with Pringles since it had been years since we had seen a pass.
For straight ballin', the best game in town is SF-Pro Am in the summer.
If it weren't for that rat bastard Wolf tarping our baseball seats (don't get me started), I might have missed it. I've only posted about three times to this SBNation thing, look it up. By the third post I'm carrying young Jeremy's jockstrap. We watched him grow up there:
South Bay- 2nd Place-2009
Over the years he became a fan favorite. And we're talking hoops fans at the crusty Kezar. Old school Frisco. Not easily impressed.

The Curious Case of Jeremy Lin
Jan 2009, I think
That might give you some more perspective. Now everyone is watching his film for the first time. Can he adjust?
I have an old trophy that says "I'm A Knicks Fan" if anyone wants to question my credentials. I'm also a Lin fan, so this is awesome. If this rises any higher than a lead balloon I might add some more thoughts.
