Knicks stars have good laugh at Heat’s tears

Back in early July, when the Knicks had missed out on LeBron James and the Heat seemed to be forming a juggernaut, this day seemed a long way off.

A day when Knicks stars Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, feeling confident after another big win, were having a laugh at the expense of the Heat stars, who were on the verge of tears.

But that’s where we are, as Chris Sheridan reports at ESPNNewYork.

When the locker room first opened to reporters after the game, Stoudemire and Anthony were bantering and laughing about players on the Miami Heat crying after their loss earlier Sunday to the Chicago Bulls, with Stoudemire fingering Chris Bosh as the watery-eyed one (although Bosh, when asked by reporters in Miami whether he had cried, said he almost had but did not).

“I heard Chris Bosh was crying tears,” Stoudemire said.

“Tears?” Anthony asked.

“Yeah, tears,” Stoudemire replied.

“Wait ’til I call him, man,” Anthony said. “I’ll be like: ‘What are you doing?'”

News travels fast in the NBA now. And while the Knicks are not as good as the Heat yet, Knicks fans you can bet are enjoying this plenty.

    Uh at the end of the day I will take Miami’s chances over New York’s.

      lol…for realz. Knick fans are celebrating their beloved team is above .500 for the first time in 5 years after the all star break. Many will tear including the duo above when they get bounced in the 1st round of the playoffs.

        Two words for you Knick fans: EDDIE CURRY (Zeke’s legacy)! ROFLMAO!!!

        World’s thinnest book: “Rings I have won”. co-authored by the pride of Akron, LaBron James, lazy Eddie Curry, party boy Jamaal Crawford, overrated Chris Bosh, big mouthed Charles Barkley and Karl “Elbows” Malone.

      Just so you know, we beat you the first game of your current four game losing streak and there was no crying on the knicks part. My BIG THREE will beat your BIG THREE AND MAKE YOU CRY TOO.

    Its never a good idea to mock anyone and give them motivation, let a sleeping dog lie.

  3. purdueman - Mar 7, 2011 at 11:02 AM

    You’d cry too if you were the Heat and couldn’t do better against Chicago’s second unit that features Shorty Watson at point guard!

  4. hnirobert3 - Mar 7, 2011 at 11:04 AM

    This team is modeling itself after it’s coach, which is weak. Riley doesn’t need to come down from his suite, but he needs to figure something out, whether it be Doc Rivers as was rumored earlier this year or someone along those lines. This is embarrassing, and the fact that Spo would even come out and say this shows how clueless he is.

    • purdueman - Mar 7, 2011 at 3:08 PM

      You mean that high school kid who’s currently coaching the Heat? I think it’s just all a set up so that Riley can step down to lead the team to victory come playoff time. Notice that Miami’s never take the term “interim coach” off of Sonny Boy?

      • hnirobert3 - Mar 8, 2011 at 8:05 AM

        I really don’t think Pat needs or wants to come down. He’s just “too old” to deal with this stuff. The travel schedule isn’t as bad during the playoffs but landing in Sacramento at 3am isn’t what Pat wants to be doing at this stage in his career. I do think he needs to take a more active role with the team since Spoelstra obviously has no control.

  5. hnirobert3 - Mar 7, 2011 at 11:21 AM

    Side note: notice that there are no comments that Chauncey was one of the ones laughing about this? That’s class,

    • zackd2 - Mar 7, 2011 at 5:20 PM

      This report came when the locke room first opened up. Didn’t even mention if Chauncey was around or in the trainers room getting work done

  6. metalhead65 - Mar 7, 2011 at 11:40 AM

    so when does lebron’s next show air? it is called the expanation and will blame everybody but himself again for the heat woes. do they realy expect anybody but heat fans to feel sorry for them?the way they conducted themselves when they signed up to play together invited the ridicule they are now getting. they were all free agents and could have signed where they wanted and did but they could not leave it at that could they?first one of them had to have a tv show about then the team threw a huge party like they had won something already and then came the we will win 5-6 championship predictions. so excuse me if I take great delight in watching them fail!

  7. king686 - Mar 7, 2011 at 12:52 PM

    Knicks r better then the heat we beat the heat. if the heat slip to 3rd n knicks in6th kniccs win

    • purdueman - Mar 7, 2011 at 3:26 PM

      Speaking of New York… just think… had Yoko Ono married Sonny Bono (instead of John Lennon), the Beatles likely would not have broken up so soon and Yoko would then have become known as: Yoko-Ono-Bono!!!

  8. purdueman - Mar 7, 2011 at 3:16 PM

    Jim Rome today did a nice rip job of crybaby D-Wade’s comments about “the world being a better place because the Heat lost”. Rome is spot on when he says that “Wade just doesn’t get it” (as to why the Heat are so universally loathed outside of Miami). The “Three Premadonna’s” just thought that they could phone in an NBA title this year, just as Moses Malone thought that he could just show up with the Lakers and walk away with a ring too (thankfully he didn’t). Outside of the fans in the cities in which teams that simply try and buy a title live, nobody has any respect for teams that do.

  9. craigw24 - Mar 7, 2011 at 3:46 PM

    I think you mean Karl Malone. Moses did win a ring so he doesn’t belong in your rant.

    • purdueman - Mar 7, 2011 at 3:55 PM

      LOL! Nice catch, but all those Malone’s look the same to me! Make the world a better place; punch D-Wade in the face!

    • purdueman - Mar 7, 2011 at 4:03 PM

      I can’t take credit for the “rant” you are referring to above; go online and listen to the Jim Rome Show’s first half hour from today’s broadcast. I did get the right Malone too (see earlier post on “The World’s Thinnest Book”), but for some reason I slipped up on the subsequent post when I referenced Moses instead. The important thing though is that you all know a shameless “ring chaser” when you see one. MLB has a variant on that too… it’s called wanting to be remembered as a Yankee, even if 95% or more of your career was played elsewhere.

      • hnirobert3 - Mar 8, 2011 at 8:08 AM

        Dude, get a life. You’re obviously obsessed with the Heat and watch ESPN 24/7.

  10. njsteeler - Mar 7, 2011 at 9:36 PM

    First off, there is no bulletin board material in this article. All of these guys are boys off the court, and that was just a little bit of clowning amongst boys. You did see where Melo said, “Wait till I call him” right? That’s what boys do. No big deal. Trust if the shoe was on the other foot, Bron and Wade would be doing the same thing! And in the words of STAT…, “We ain’t scared of the Heat”!! When Chauncey gets back, I like the Knicks Big 3 better than the Heats.

  11. purdueman - Mar 8, 2011 at 9:58 AM

    here’s to you hnirobert3… go ‘eff yourself (if you haven’t already). I have no “obsession” with the Heat, but you obviously do because I clearly struck a nerve. Jim Rome has one too because the entire front half of his show yesterday was dedicated to your crying heat too. and the ONLY thing that I EVER watch on the EASTERN Sports Programming Network is live NBA basketball. Nope; don’t EVER bother with even Sportscenter either. Who wants 55 minutes of Eastern seaboard team highlights?

  12. dysraw1 - Mar 8, 2011 at 10:09 AM

    what goes around comes around, so be careful who u laugh at.

    • purdueman - Mar 8, 2011 at 10:16 AM

      No worries; there are several reports that Dolan is still bud’s with Zeke and Zeke of course was the genius who brought in the King of Sloth, fat, lazy Eddie Curry and gave that useless slug a big $12.5M/year contract extension. Zeke is the Knicks ultimate albatross!

      • rapmusicmademedoit - Mar 8, 2011 at 7:21 PM

        Dude, I need to know, is it Zeke Or Dolan that is bangin your wife?, if you really knew basketball you would ask how come all those former Knicks are now playing so well on other teams and don’t forget Larry Brown, he just thought I will just rotate player’s on and off the roster without a care of the contract they were taking on, remember he was the one the wanted the Steve Francis and his huge contract,You need to check your facts out.

  13. purdueman - Mar 8, 2011 at 7:39 PM

    rapmui=sicmademedoit… Judging from the total lack of maturity of your post, I can’t decide whether your 15? or maybe you’ve just turned 16? Time to grow up, son!

    . When “the big three” where not on the same team, folks loved them. The real reason they are hated is not because they predicted any championships….they are hated because they decided to do what we try to teach our youth as sportsmen and women. They decided to go for championships instead of money. A few years ago, it was acceptable when washed up players went to teams solely to win a championship (i.e. Shaq is now with Boston…tried Cleveland and Miami as well)Karl Malone, Gary Payton and a few others did this same thing. So, now three guys do it while at the top of their game, and the basketball world is out of sorts….incredible. As to Jim Rome and his statement on D Wade not getting it…..i think he gets it just fine…taling heads say Miami is hated but the money and attendance says something diferent. If Miami comes to your city, the game is sold out. If you say that the game is sold out because people want to watch them lose, slow down your statement and catch the phrase in the sentence that says,”people want to watch them….”

    • purdueman - Mar 14, 2011 at 3:45 PM

      There’s a big difference between being an aging “ring chaser” (like Karl “Elbows” Malone, Gary Payton and others, and in baseball unfortunately it happens WAY too often with guys wanting to take one last shot as a minor contributor with the Yankees), and wanting to win a championship as an integral part of a team (i.e., La Bum James, D-Wade, Bosh and Mello recently).

      What people hate about Miami’s “Big 3 Prima Donna’s” isn’t their desire to chase a championship, but the totally shady way that they colluded to go to Miami. D-Wade used his hometown (Chicago), as leverage, but all he did was use the Bulls by letting them wine and dine him when he had ZERO interest in playing there. La Bum unfairly strung loyal Cleveland fans along, then insulted them with his shameless ESPN announcement special. I have no problem with Bosh though; Bosh is over rated and isn’t in the same tier as La Bum and D-Wade.

      The bigger issue IMO is the potential impact that it has on the overall health of the league. Now that La Bum has left Cleveland, might as well just fold the franchise because the actions of these players is leading other stars to flee smaller markets and turning those smaller market teams into the minor leagues of basketball who now are looked upon largely as just being a farm system for the larger market teams. Is that good for the league or the smaller market teams? Obviously not!

      Finally pompous arse Pat Riley just threw gasoline into the fire with his smug personna and attitude. Make the world a better place; punch Pat Riley in the face!
