Despite what Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl had to say about the New York Knicks not making it out the first-round this season, Knicks fans have been talking championship, and Knicks PG Baron Davis is screaming championship right alongside them.
This is what the former All-star recently told The New York Post:
“I see a banner … right in the middle between those two,” he says. To the left of the 1972-73 championship banner sits the 1969-70 championship banner. And the banner in the middle says? “2011-12 New York Knicks,” Davis says.“And I think that we’ll come out of nowhere, and we’ll do it.”Davis, the team D.J., has yet to do his thing at a Manhattan club. “I probably will,” he says. “Once we win the championship.”
. As a die-hard Knicks loyalist, I love Davis’ words of encouragement, but I still believe it’s a little premature.
The Knicks have the potential to make some noise in the Playoffs this season, but they’re currently holding the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
Pump your brakes Baron, pump your brakes.
