BATTLE CRY "REMEBER THE KNICKS '99!!"

I think we all can agree that the Suns do look very lost and  unispired right now. They are definately a team that many aren't expecting to go very far if we do even make the playoffs. Well fellow Suns fans, I want you to focus your attention on a team that was in even more disarray than our squad; the New York Knicks of the '99 season. I say the '99 season because it was the strike shorten season and all the games were played that season and none in 1998. That Knicks team had a mixture of savy vets and some very raw young talent, but were able to put together one of the most improvable runs to the finals ever. Now once there they did lose to the most hated San Antonio Spurs in what was the Spurs first title in Tim Duncans second year in the league, but that's more of a side note. They were an eighth seed that UPSET the top seeded Miami Heat, then they went on to upset the Atlanta Hawks and the Indiana Pacers. The point I want  to convey is, just get to the playoffs by any means possible. Once there anything can and will happen. I know it would be against the hated Lakers or the Spurs most likely as a first round draw, but like Rick Flair used to say..." In order to be the best you have got to BEAT the best". If the lowly Knicks whick no one gave a chance to could shock the world, well then why not us.
