From Stan Van Gundy --

"I've never understood the whole hype with Madison Square Garden," he said.

"It's like anything: They're a very good team with very good players, and so that's something that gets your juices flowing: because it's Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire. But Madison Square Garden to me? It's not one of the nicer places in the league. It has some history, but no more so than some others. Look, their last championship was in the '70s."

Oh yeeeeaaah! LOVE that quote.

Stan always speaks truth. Him and Phil have got to be the most quotable coaches ever.

Silly Stan! Doesn't he remember the Rangers winning the cup in 94? I mean it's the only one they've won in seventy years, but it must have been pretty cool I guess. Doesn't that qualify the Garden as the worlds most famous arena?

We can resume laughing at the Knicks after they lose today.

For some lols..

Friday, April 29 is the 10 year anniversary of the last Knicks playoff win.

The Bobcats are the only other team in the NBA that has not won a playoff game in the last 10 years. They also have not existed for 10 years.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, the Grizzlies were still in Vancouver. Also, by getting their first two playoff wins in franchise history, the Grizzlies have two more playoff wins in the last 10 years than the Knicks have.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, LeBron James was a sophomore in high school. Dwight Howard was a freshman.

Neither Carmelo Anthony nor Amare Stoudemire were in the NBA.
