The New York Knicks tipped off their season last night against the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers. It was, to say the least, not a great outing for our boys in blue and orange. The final score was Cavs 117, Knicks 88, but to be honest, it really wasn't that close. The Knicks' defense was water-weak and the offense still seems to be lacking a rudder.

One has to hope that with time the team will get far better, and hopefully Derrick Rose will fit in better after more time in practice rather than off court. All that being said, Marc Berman of the New York Post seems far more pessimistic than I am. I take that as a pretty bad sign, considering he follows the team closer than anyone I know. He and Ian Begley are my go-to-guys for Knicks info.
