What I like the most is how the Nicks tried to explain it:
According to the Knicks, the whole thing happened because the Nuggets still had their starters on the floor with 1:15 left and a 19-point lead. Denver won 123-100.
"They just wanted to embarrass us," Robinson said. "It was a slap in the face to us. As a team, as a franchise, we weren't going to let that happen. A clean, hard foul happened and after that it went down from there."
Those guys kept throwing the ball in our basket. We don't like it when people throw the ball in our basket. It makes us looke bad, because our fans then expect us to throw a ball in some one elses basket. And we don't know how!!
The Knicks coach Isiah Thomas tried to avoid this kind of thing from happening:
Thomas said he even told Anthony that he never should have been in the game at the time.
"I just said to him, 'You know, you're up 20, you're up 19 with a minute and half to go, you and (Marcus) Camby really shouldn't be in the game right now," Thomas said. "We had surrendered, those guys shouldn't even be in the game at that point in time."
Of course, had the Knicks surrendered prior to the game START, there would be no fight. Anthony and Camby were probaly irritated by the fact that had to run around, throw balls nad so on; and only 1.15 minutes before the end do Knicks surreneder. I think it is a lack of sportsmanship from Knicks side that they don't surrender before their matches start.
After the hard foul by Collins, Smith got up and jawed with Collins and Robinson jumped in to yell at Smith -- who had thrown down a reverse dunk on a fast break minutes earlier.
"They were having their way with us," Thomas said. "I think J.R. Smith had just made one dunk when he reversed and spun in the air. And I think Mardy didn't want our home crowd to see that again. So he fouled him."
That is really no way to behave in a basketball game. YOU ARE NOT PLAYING FOR THE AUDIENCE; YOU SHOW OFF!!!!!! KEEP THE GAME UGLY!
Omg, I just saw the explanation of the incident. Nuggets were bad towards their girl-friends!!
"They were having their way with us," Thomas said
Get your asses to the flower shop, Nuggets. Knicks deserve your respect and loyalty. Before, during and after
