Dancing Machine

Now that the Knicks are officially out of the playoffs, us New Yorkers can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

No worries!
Just good old fashioned entertainment.

I had a chance to put my feet up last night and check out this performance by Chris Paul:

What made this play great was the fact that EVERYONE in the building, and the millions watching on t.v., knew something was about to go down once this isolation occurred.

Technically speaking, that wasn't bad defense by Bynum.
Paul has just been that nasty in this first round series against L.A.
And he has put it on any and every defender the Lakers have thrown his way.

His numbers for game four: 27 points. 15 assists, and 13 rebounds.

His number's for that move: 4 between the legs, 2 cross-overs, a step back to his left, 1 hesitation, then a step back going to his right (harder for right handed players).

The numbers for this series: 2-2

To echo Reggie Miller's sentiments: MY-GOOD-NESS

Don't worry Knicks fans, the summer of 2012 will be here before we know it!

  1. The first thing I said to myself after game 1 was "Outstanding performance by our future point guard." This guy is unreal. Ive been singing his praises since he set foot in the league, but many disagreed, or preferred others. (See previous blog about one Deron Williams) But I believe CP3 is the real deal. I have no issue with Williams, Rose, or Westbrook. (Although his shot selection alone in game 4 may drop him out of the top pg in the league convo) But Paul plays mistake free basketball. Seriously, when have you seen him make a bad decision on the floor? They are few and far between, if any. Rose is a phenomenal scorer, a deft passer, & makes tough shots. However, he tends to have "Victor Page" syndrome, and I know that you know what that is. Westbrook has another scorer on his team who apparently he doesnt want to defer to. And he is WAY better in transition than half court. Deron Williams is just as tough as CP3, but I just PREFER Paul over him.

    Look at his team. Who does he have??? David West is out. Emeka Okafor and Tyson Chandler??? REALLY!?!?! Who else's supporting cast is that weak? (sans Williams) This guy is single handedly taking the champs to the limit. 2012 cant come soon enough.
