while i was in new york, my co-workers took me to see a knicks game, at the world’s most famous arena, madison square garden.
unfortunately, the knicks opponent that night was the preinially woeful charlotte bobcats, but after 2 years without any live nba basketball, it was great to go to a game in person.
i will say this, knicks fans really know their basketball (as a contrast to rockets fans or lakers/clippers fans). in fact, i’d say that the warrior fans and knicks fans were the most basketball knowledgable crowds i’ve ever been priviliaged enough to watch a game with.
the second most notable thing was their love for danilo gallenari – everyone was shouting “shoot it gallo!” everytime the italian forward had it behind the arc. it was an arena wide man-crush. he obliged with two key 3 pointers down the stretch as the knicks prevailed over the bobcats.
