Baron Davis has been out all season with a back injury. He began practicing with the Knicks this week, but perhaps he is still a bit behind on getting used to the lifestyle in New York. The Knicks have spent a lot of money and are loaded with star power, yet they are a mere 6-10 on the season. Fans who have attended the last four New York games — all of which were at Madison Square Garden — were treated to losses. They pay a lot of money to be there, so when the team stinks they deserve to be booed. Baron doesn’t think so.
“We’re going to have the fans behind us, even though they boo,” Davis said Monday according to the NY Post. “They’re just passionate about winning. All we ask is for their patience and to keep supporting us, because the booing is not going to really help us think through things.”
Losing doesn’t help Knicks fans feel better about the money they spent to go to the games, either. New York fans may be a bit premature in their Phil Jackson chants and may have forgotten that Carmelo Anthony is battling injuries when they rained boos down on him, but there’s only one way to stop it. The Knicks have to stop playing like crap.
Apparently Davis thinks he’s going to bring a lot to the table when he is cleared to play. He said the Knicks offense is going to become “unstoppable” once they hit their stride. Until that moment, the fans will continue giving a 6-10 team the reception they deserve.Google+
