Knicks' Win Leaves Buckets Singing

The Knicks victory against the Wizards last night left us giddy as Maria Von Trapp. Before the Nazis came.

Tonight’s win against the Wizards has inexplicably made new official Buckets writer Stan Chin break out into song… be warned though his singing voice has been compared to that of William Hung… and has been found wanting…

Take it away, Stan:

My apologies in advance.

(Clearing throat.. ahem ahem)

(sung to the tune My Favorite Things)

Knicks playing defense
Two get double doubles
Keep draining 3 pointers
We’ll be nothing but trouble
Swishing and dishing that Clyde Frazier sings
These are a few of my favorite things

Great balanced scoring
But Randolph is rusty
On the end of the Knick bench
Curry’s getting dusty
Dreaming of fittings for championship rings
These are a few of my favorite things

Nine Wall turnovers
Can’t blame the asbestos
Hope Douglas’ five steals
Don’t get him arrested
Now bring on the Sixers it ain’t no big thing
These are a few of my favorite things

If the ball stops
If the crowd boos
When they play sad
I simply remember my Knicks are much improved
and then I don’t feel… soooooo….. baaaaaad

Thank you thank you

No applause please

Just throw money

Just a few other comments I couldn’t fit into the song…

-Stoudemire bounced back with a great game… 18 points on 6-11 shooting with 4 boards and only 2 turnovers

-I touched on the 2 double doubles tonight… Felton with 13 point and 10 assists and Douglas with team leading 19 points and 10 boards.. I think he was channeling David Lee with those numbers.

-Back to back nights setting career highs for Douglas. 30 points yesterday 5 steals today.

-Five games into the season I think I see a need defensively… an enforcer. Someone to plant a player on their backside when they come into the paint.. hard. Make guys like Rondo and Rose think twice about driving down the lane.

-Useless fact of the day…The Knicks are undefeated when they score over 100 points and hold their opponent under 100. (think about it)

-On a sad note while watching the pre game show I saw that Maurice Lucas passed away. He was great player with the Knicks back in 81-82. For those of you who did not get to see him play imagine Charles Oakley enforcer/rebounding skills with better offensive moves. 15.8 ppg 11.3 rpg with the Knicks (14.4 and 9.1 career with the ABA and NBA) The man was one of the all time NBA greats.
