The Knicks and Lakers are two of the most storied franchises in the NBA. So when they played last week they didn’t need any extra reason for the buzz around this game… oh but they got it.
The Lakers were coming off a horrid stretch of basketball and the Knicks were playing beautiful ball. It was a test for both teams in the house and everyone was in the house to see it. Spike Lee, Charles Barkley and even Vanessa Hudgens.
*Uh… yeah. Hey man. I see that. Now, watch the game. Take care.
Anyways, so from the tip we knew it was going to be a battle between Melo and Kobe. They both came out firing but the difference was simply that Melo had help from his teammates, both defensively and offensively
*Yeah dude. It’s Vanessa Hudgens. Way to go. Now stop looking at me.
Sorry. So in the first half, both teams were doing exactly what both teams do. The Lakers were laying an egg and the Knicks were playing inspired, team basketball. Oh, and Melo looked a lot better than Kobe so when you…
*Yeah man. I can see that. Would you watch the basketball game please… like your girlfriend is doing.
Can you believe this guy? Right. The Knicks came out in the second half maintaining their lead. Then all of the sudden Melo went down with an injury, which opened the doors for the Lakers to get some momentum and even…
*What do you want from me? Seriously… enough.
So the Lakers started steadily chipping away at that big lead they were up against and by the final few minutes of the fourth quarter, the game was within two possessions.
*Stop it. It’s a great beanie, but you look like you’re going to prom in that pose. And GET YOUR EYES OFF OF ME! Great athletes are playing basketball right before your eyes. Enjoy this!
So after all the Lakers fighting and chipping it was just never enough to fight off the Knicks. The difference between the two teams is…
*I think it’s Mumford and Sons and… nevermind. Watch the game.
So the difference between the Lakers and the Knicks is just simply that the Knicks play as a team and that’s really what makes all the…
*Ok. Are you done?
The Knicks and the lak…
*No you didn’t. Nobody did. Go away.
*Leave me be.
*This column is over. I’m finished. Bye.
