Yesterday the Knicks clinched a winning record for the first time in a decade, the Knicks are officially back. Basketball is finally relevant again in New York City. As the likely 6 seed, the Knicks are a team that nobody wants to face in the playoffs.
Knick fans, with the last home game of the regular season tomorrow against the Bulls there is no better time to show our appreciation to the architect behind this resurgence, Donnie Walsh, in the form of a simple “Thank You Donnie” chant heard from the rafters at the Garden all the way down to the court.
I urge all of you in attendance tomorrow and those who are not to get the word out. Let’s show our appreciation to the man that has made New York City basketball relevant again and to the man who might not be here next season.
