There has been a history of incredible performances at Madison Square Garden. Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant have all thrived at the World’s Most Famous Arena, as I’m sure many others did before my time.
Despite the appreciation of greatness, these instances usually ended in frustration.
On Wednesday night, the Knicks were able to accomplish something they haven’t been accustomed to doing. Warriors guard Stephen Curry captivated the crowd by dropping 54 points and hitting 11 threes, but New York was able to come away with a 109-105 victory.
Since 1985-1986, according to Basketball-Reference.com, only six times has an opponent tallied 50 points or more at the Garden, before Curry.
Today, Mike Bibby was officially signed to a one-year deal, valued at the veteran’s minimum of $1.4 million by the New York Knicks.
The deal was not met with great optimism nor celebration from Knicks fans; actually, quite the contrary. Many fans, myself included, believe Mike Bibby is too old to be playing at the NBA level. His legs are shot. He can’t even keep up with Eddy Curry. But, luckily, he can still shoot.
