Give me one good reason why the NBA wouldn't want the Knicks to succeed.


Calling 3 technicals on them in a 5 minute stretch of a 1 point game and then following it up the next game by throwing out a T 90 seconds into the game screams, "Let's help them succeed!"

Carmelo, Amar'e, Chandler, and Billups all had their career high in technicals as Knicks after spending 8+ seasons with other teams. The Knicks have been 1st in technicals the past 2 years and are 1st this year.


Lets be real. They had more success those past 8 years to. Losing breeds negativity. Not to mention the extra pressure playing for a team who either signed you for big money or traded for you oh and they play for the Knicks. A team the media actually cares about.

Edit: one more thing they had D'Antoni as their coach its not like he breeds discipline.

Amar'e had 13 technicals by the All-Star break of the season he was considered an MVP candidate and the Knicks were a top 4 seed during the 1st half of the season. The Knicks made the playoffs both years. Don't know what you're talking about, woman.

Even Fields would get a technical anytime he didn't have a smile on his face after a call against him.

D'Antoni is coach now?

How many teams get assessed a technical within 90 seconds of the start of the game for the coach disagreeing with a call for the 1st time all game? At home?

And hey, maybe it doesn't have to do with money? Remember how Donaghy claimed the refs used to put a microscope over everything Iverson did because he said something about a ref once? Knicks have 4 notorious complainers.. Chandler, Amar'e, Melo, and of course, Sheed. Not a single ref in the league wants to give Rasheed a call.

I think every team in the league has notorious complainers. Celtics? KG, Rondo, Terry, PP, etc. etc.

It's a whiny league.

Then why does one team finish with almost 10 more techs than any other team last year? It's not like many of the technicals would even be considered to be called before the stupid rule instated 2 years ago. Hell, Amar'e has had to get a bunch rescinded because some of them have been an absolute joke.

Technicals aren't subjective enough to be dishing them out at the 1.5 a game rate they're giving the Knicks right now.

I didn't watch Knick's basketbal from start to finish last season but when I saw them play they weren't the poster boys for discipline.

Chandler, no. But he only accounted for 20% of them. And then you can add in the 3 techs J.R. Smith had for presumably trying to fight someone, but yeah. Most of the techs that Shumpert, Melo, and Amar'e got were pretty bad. If Melo had the freedom that other All-Stars not named Dwight get, he wouldn't have even gotten a third of the 28 technicals given to him the last 2 seasons + 7 games.

If you think there's some conspiracy againt NY, then you are out of your mind.

NBA would want nothing more than to have NY winning, and in the Finals.

Ctrl+F, type conspiracy. Tell me what you find.

Refs don't like the Knicks.. evidenced by them leading the league in technicals (a subjective call) the last 3 years.

Also, you're stupid if you believe the NBA doesn't want LeBron vs Kobe in the Finals every year. Not enough to care though because they're still making $$$ as long as one superstar or big market team gets there (which is every year).

And you're even more stupid if you think they don't want the Knicks to succeed.

Stern was vehemently fighting the Knicks' ability to retain/sign free agents, and argued that the Knicks should not have had Novak and Lin's bird rights because they were "too loaded".

Isiah Thomas ran the Knicks into the ground for years and even cost an owner $12 million to pay for the sexual harassment lawsuit filed against the Knicks because of him.. and Stern never intervened to do what was good for the Knicks or the retard owner that he works for.

Again, 1st in technicals, 3 years running.

Please tell me how the NBA is expressing their desire for the Knicks to succeed, LOL. Ignoramus. They don't care about whether or not a team wins on the court unless if they play in L.A. or Miami. And what "the league wants" usually has no relevance to the refs calling 2 technicals a game on a team in the regular season.

A truer statement could not be made.

Still <3 you though 'Sheed.

Wow, it's amazing how much better we look when we aren't playing out of control.
