I watch the Knicks--when they are watchable. And I remember their two championships (1970 and 73) which were accomplished with team play--as opposed to the current phenomenon of the star player and, basically, his "backup band." You cannot tell me that half a team standing around waiting for the star player to do something qualifies as team play.

That explains everything. It also means you've barely watched the NBA in the last 10 years.

For example, in last nights 3 playoff games the highest scorer only had 25points.

Watch the Spurs-Grizz game tonight and you might be pleasantly surprised. (However they are only on NBA TV and you might not have that channel option)
