'Twas the night before Knicksmas and all through The Garden
Not a #Knicks fan was stirring not even Spike Lee
The jerseys were hung in the lockers with care
In the hopes that the fans soon would be there
The players were nestled all snug in their beds
While visions of championships danced in their heads.
Harlow on the sideline and Clyde in his suits
Had just settled down for a long winter of hoops.
When out in the Mecca there arose such a clatter
I turn on #MSG to see backboards shatter
Away from the city, a long road trip
Tear up the league on a quest for the ‘chip
With a grumpy old driver so lively and pissed
I knew in a moment, it must be Coach Thibs
More rapid than fast breaks, his curses they came
And he whistled and he shouted and he called them by name
"On RANDLE, on KEMBA, on QUICKLY and RJ
On TAJ, on MITCH, on DROSE and OBI!
To the top of the key, out to center court
Now, pass away, pass away, pass away the ball!"
As I drew plays in my head and was turning around
Down underneath, big Mitch came with a rebound
He was dressed in blue and orange from his head to his foot
And his clothes were all matched with Taj and the rooks
They filled all the buckets on the court that is home
And laying 3 fingers to the side of the dome
giving a nod up the court as they go
Late game heroics is something we know
Sprang from his seat, and hear Breen yelled 'BANG!!'
And a WIN they all gained like Hahn and Wally were pray'n
Then I heard Clyde exclaim, while the lights were still bright
“Merry Knicksmas to all and to all a good night."
