While all the initial talk in the office this morning surrounded a Post-it note that read, “Stephen Curry Is God,” the next topic of conversation was the resurgence of the great Celtics/Knicks rivalry.
After Boston beat New York last night, Quentin Richardson had some, shall we say, choice words for the defending champs:
“I think a few of those guys know they can’t just say anything to us,” said Richardson. “I’m just real curious to see what those guys will be saying if we weren’t in a basketball league, and didn’t have referees. I mean it wouldn’t be the same story. I mean they are the world champions and rah-rah-rah, but the tough part I don’t factor. I come from a neighborhood where you can say what you want to say, but ’til you do something, it don’t mean nothing. Some of those guys are happy to get a ring, but you ain’t been in the league long enough to talk to people like that. I don’t have a lot of respect for that. Like I said, I’d be curious to hear what they have to say in a different setting, I’d be very curious to see that.”
With the Knicks playing better than expected, it’s definitely possible that if New York makes it to the playoffs as a seven or eight seed, they’ll have to face the Celtics in the first round.
In a seven game series, how many games do the Knicks win?
