Sports and Politics: The NY Knicks and the United States have something in common!

Update Saturday March 17: The New York Knicks win easily for the second time under the new coaching regime, beating the Indiana Pacers last night 115-100. So far so good in New York although it is far too early to term coach Mike Woodson's moves with Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire an unqualified success.

Regardless, I stand by my comparison to President Obama below!


The new Knicks coach, Mike Woodson, is putting the spotlight back onto Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire and taking it away from Jeremy Lin!

Can the NY Knicks put "Linsanity" back into the bottle now that the fans have seen what it can accomplish? They can try but the coach and team management will be on a very short leash with the fans!

The problem is that while Anthony and Stoudemire have the big contracts and the "star" appeal, they also don't play any defense and the team looks lost with an unselfish leader on the floor. The record since Anthony came back into the line-up speaks for itself and is no coincidence I am afraid.

Maybe there is a method to Woodson's madness, or perhaps he is just giving in to the pressure while hoping to get a longer-term title with the team that doesn't include interim!

Do the NY Knicks and the United States have anything in common?

The United States, like the NY Knicks starting today, has also been mired under the weight of a selfish leader, Barack Obama, who doesn't understand anything about defense, and who is looking for a longer-term role!

Now I don't know how it will all work out for Woodson, but come November I can only hope that President Obama will be out of a job!
