It turns out the NFL lockout was the “easy” one. What with both sides making zillions, the only real fear was that they’d turn off the fans. But in the end – we are so crazy for our footbal (J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, JETS!) that so long as we don’t miss actual gametime – we’re all good.
Now the NBA is another matter. I’ve pulled out a couple o’tickets from this (the 1999) Knick playoff run for Stubstory, and since THIS lockout looks like it may last a while – hopefully it’s conjure up some pleasant memories.
Take a look at this Knick Roster – no Starks, no Oakley, but still it was almost the old gang – heck Herb was even born in the ’50′s. Ewing, Houston and LJ still bringing the Old Knick feel and these guys were running on the fumes of the “almost years”.
