The Night Before Knicksmas.....

'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 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."
