Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday spotlights…Sugar Ray Robinson
Is this franchise snake bit? Can anything go right? Am I wrong to stay a Knick fan when all I get is more grief more setbacks and more of hit the restart button again? Even when they get a franchise player disaster strikes. This is off the court …on the court they manage to get a 27 point lead at half time only to lose the game. This has been a pattern all season and Jeff Hornacek seems totally incapable of demanding the need to play the same in the second half of games like they do the first half. Could you imagine Pat Riley or Jeff Van Gundy tolerating this kind of play… I don’t think so. If you don’t demand it they won’t push forward either. Lead or get out of the way.Losing Kristaps Porzingis is tough enough but losing a 27 point lead to lose the game with out their star player (John Wall) is unacceptable.
This franchise had lofty goals of getting back to the finals in what has been speculated as Lebron’s last season in Cleveland(Again) it wasn’t look like that goal was going to be reached. Then at the trade deadline GM LeBron got busy and remade this roster in 3 trades and friendship wasn’t standing in the way. The Cavs got down to business sending Isiah Thomas and Dwayne Wade packing and got back Rodney Hood, George Hill,Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. The Cavs got younger more athletic and apparently the trades rejuvenated Lebron himself. The Cavs have been riding on a 4 game winning streak and they are having fun doing it.
The first thing I noticed when Todd Frazier put on his new Mets uniform was his number 21. Of the many players in Mets histoory I can only think of two that worn that number with distinction is Cleon Jones of the 1969 world championship team and more recently Lucas Duda. Now Todd Frazier has the chance to bring his own brand of distinction to that same number. The signing wasn’t the sexy name fans were looking for but Frazier adds to the lineup and the infield defense. Don’t forget the goal is to win. The Nationals until otherwise shown are the top team in the division, yet if yes that bad word if the Mets stay healthy …this will be a on going season battle that will make the fans excited. Injuries wreck this team all season and they limped home with 72 wins …stay healthy with a return of Jay Bruce with Todd Frazier (former Reds teammates) in the lineup this could be a solid run going forward. 2 years 17 million …I guess Sandy played this signing right.
