TOP 10 TEAMS OF 2010: #9 NEW YORK KNICKS
We've heard all the New York Knicks jokes and comments before. Still to end this year the Big Apple team bit back, taking bites out of everybody. Thanks to a great, realistic free agency the Knicks signed Amare Stoudemire and changed their 'STAT Quo'. The renaissance man Amare, shook off eye and knee injuries and strapped on his brace and put on his Kareem goggles for some just like old times play. His game again was all new Kanye album, first single. The forward has powered his team to their best start post Ewing. Still it's not just Amare making Madison Square Garden the mecca of basketball again. Raymond Felton is a true point and second option and these 'bockers have a wealth of talent from the hardwood to the pine. There's a flair of Italian also from sharp shooting swinger Danilo Gallinari to run and gun coach D'Antoni's perfect design. More than any team in the L things are more than looking up for the Manhattan squad. Also with free agents to be Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul interested in giving old rival the Miami superfriends a run for their championship money the Knicks future is brighter than Times Square. Time to bring in the new year. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
