It may say something about the way the Knicks have...
The hallowed grounds rocked, the crowd roared, and far below on the wooden floor that is basketball's most sacred ground, a retooled New York Knicks team capped a somewhat meaningless preseason victory over the New Jersey Nets.
The moment Wednesday night was fleeting but fierce: In an 88-82 win that most of the people in the Garden surely knew meant little, the new nature of...
