    I’ve been checking hourly for your stats on the Knicks vs Nets game last night. Do you think there is any chance the Knicks are going to start playing like a more cohesive unit by the end of the season?

    I’m also wondering if you can please comment on Seton Hall’s snub by the NCAA Tourney Committee. I know this is an NBA site, but com’on I think I can speak for everyone here when I say the Hall could take down VCU any day. What a scam. GO HALL!!
