Found March 26, 2012 on No Guts, No Glory:
We’ve discussed Mike Woodson’s belief that the Knicks could win a championship this season, but we didn’t take them very seriously. And neither did you.It’s not uncommon for a coach to be optimistic and try to build his squad up with positive words. We thought he was being very optimistic, but we understood what he was trying to do. And so did you.Now we get word that photos of the Larry O’Brien trophy have been hung in the Knicks’ locker room. And just like that optimism has turned to full on dreaming.Over every Knicks player’s locker at Madison Square Garden, there is now a picture of an NBA championship trophy. The new décor was added prior to halftime of last night’s 101-79 rout over the Pistons.“I think we just want to get our focus back,” Tyson Chandler said. “I think there’s been talk around the staff and amongst us that we’ve got to know what we’re fighting for.”It was not known who put the photos up, although Knicks manager of player security Max Cayard was involved.“
