Ok so somebody’s gunna have to pinch me and wake me up from the dream I’m in where Thee New York Knicks are hovering around first place and its almost X-mas. There’s another reoccurring dream im having and this one star’s some guy named Amar'e Stoudemire who in this early NBA season has put a struggling franchise on his back and made basketball relevant again in a city that has been yearning for another Superstar for more than a decade. Very bold statements for such an early season but a glance at the numbers would suggest that these may in fact be understatements. Words cant quite describe what Amar'e has meant to this teams current success, but breaking an age old record for consecutive thirty point games(7) today with his eighth straight (all wins for the Knicks), speaks volumes of his early season impact. As a life long Knick fan I’ve been taking a look at Stoudemire's recent challenge of the record, and also have been loving the W's that have come with him streaking. Also didn’t want to give him the keys so early in the week because I knew the significance of this game that was coming at weeks end. So thanks Amar'e for making my thoughts and words prophetic this week and now comes dare I say it? The biggest week of games on the schedule in the young season. With the hated Boston Celtics next on the docket, and The streaking Miami Heat coming to town on Friday we will cont to see what these New Look Knicks are all about against the Associations elite. Can’t say enough about AMAR'E and the streak so ill stop here and bask in the glory for now. Something’s telling me we may have a repeat winner of the Keys this time next week.

This weeks Keys to the Gym is going to none other than Mr. Lebron James and Man-O-Man did he put on in front of a sell out crowd/sports world. Took a while for me to post these weeks keys partly because I was busy eating crow along with others who had choice words for James, (although I did predict that forty on twitter (check the record @bballmajor) lol.) Secondly I had to let a performance like that breathe; "King James" shut the mouths of all who were in attendance in his once beloved
. All the passive aggressive tee-shirts and cheesy signs in the world couldn’t help be a sixth man for a Cavaliers team who for lack of a better word is lacking in just about every position on the roster. So Lebron handled his biz back at the "Q" and silenced the fans who onced called him "King" and critics who revered him for his prolific play for 7 yrs. So now what? Does the Heat team rally around James' conquering of his exiled city? Ill still hold strong to my opinion about this player and teams eventual fate.

This is another one of those posts that’s extra personal to me due to the fact that it involves another chapter closing on my senior year of ball. I have to be honest I am a little disappointed not at the games outcome but at the turnout (shouts to those that did come out and showed love.) I know the culture of a school cant change over night and I’m not sure that’s what I want here because I like Purchase as is, the people, the atmosphere and environment. I’m not happy with the student bodies school spirit, because I know its has lots to offer and I speak for my team as a whole when I say we want and need our diversity to shine at all home games. This will make for an interesting dynamic that other schools don’t have anywhere. Granted it was the first game and people have lives but id love to see this vision become a reality, we shall see.....
