    Default I'm Sorry, But I'm Already Geeking Up For Knicks Vs Hicks: The Rebirth

    This series is with Hawks is done in my eyes as I'm confident we'll talk care of business..but man if the Knicks advance, next round will be ridiculously EPIC! So much history! No more NBA TV for us!

    Yeah. I'm ready for that series too. I think we'll beat the Hawks in 5, but the Celtics still have a chance vs the Knicks

    Bring back Knicks Pacers of the 90s. I don't think they will like the physicality of that .

    Well there's not that Miller-Starks, Miller-Knick fans, Smits-Ewing, Davis boys-Mason/Oakley rivalries there. I mean PG vs Melo is an interesting matchup though

    Too early. Atlanta could easily win these next two games.

    They could win the next two, but I wouldn't say "easily".

    Exactly. I like to savor every game anyway, playoffs are not something to be taken for granted. Everything in its due time.

    I hope this isn't jinxing things, we still have to get one in Atlanta for me to feel comfortable about thinking ahead.
    I really do want to see the Knicks matchup. For one thing this will decide for me if PG is really an elite defender. If Melo averages 20 or less, you have to give it up to PG. If he averages closer to 25 but has to work for it then you can call PG a good but not elite defender.

    Nothing like MSG for Paul George's star to be born.

    Hmm, Knicks vs Hicks. I'll take Hicks in game 1. After all, if he can handle PD...

    Not necessarily... Elites should be allowed an Achilles Heal and still be considered as such...

    Paul stated in a video posted on here the other day that Melo is the hardest guy in the league to defend... I feel like if he can effectively guard 99.9% of the league that is elite...

    It also somewhat scares me for round 1... But it will be a good challenge that will give him an opportunity to grow...

    That isn't fair, Melo is likely to get his 25+ no matter who in NBA history is defending him. He may take his 35 shots to get it, but he can hit some shots that no player in NBA history could have stopped. Making him work extremely hard for his 25 points qualifies as an elite defender. Also we already have enough sample size to call Paul elite on defense, he's not at risk of losing that distinction if he doesn't hold the scoring champion more than 9 points below his average...

    I've always hated the "Hicks," tag. I know some can embrace it, but it irritates me. Could partly be because I've been living in So Cal for awhile now but trying to get back to Indiana for years. If I had a penny for all the times someone said to me: "You want to move to Indiana?? But why?!?!?" A lot of people really do think that the city of Indianapolis is mostly cow pastures bordered by corn and wheat fields where we gather in the middle of town for a hoedown when we get bored, which is every night.

    (Actually, a hoedown around monument circle would be hilarious.)

    OK, I'm exaggerating. But I have a lot of Hoosier pride and am very aware of the "brain drain," problem (college educated/highly skilled folks leaving the state) and I can't help but wonder how much this perception plays into it...

    Geez. Sorry to stray off topic. Anyway, I am looking forward to the Knicks series. I agree that the playoffs are one game a time though, so I'm not thinking about that too much,

    Michael Pina, Red94: "There are so many different ways the Pacers can beat you. They have an All-Star scoring threat, imposing figures on the front line, steady point guard play, and most importantly, a defense that'll choke the life out of just about every offense that crosses its path."

    If that's the standard, then there were no "elite defenders" when Jordan played.

    This thread is a major jinx.

    Though beside pride and family, I don't see why someone who is single would want to live in Indiana/Cleveland over Chicago.

    Three words: cost-of-living. It's embarassing that my friend makes $30k a year in Cleveland and lives middle class while my Chicago friends make $5k less yearly and are on the verge of destitute.
