Heat visit MSG, fans will bow no more to the King – AP
Mike D’Antoni saw the way LeBron James tore apart the Cavaliers when faced with a hostile crowd in Cleveland. The fans at Madison Square Garden probably won’t let that stop them from telling James how they feel about the star bypassing the Knicks for the Miami Heat.
The Heat are coming to New York on Friday, another huge game for the Knicks and their chance to show they have recovered just fine from a painful free agency snub.
They went after James and Dwyane Wade, who wanted to play together, but not in New York. They also talked to Chris Bosh.
But the Knicks gained the best power forward available when they landed Amare Stoudemire. He has a franchise-record streak of nine straight 30-point games heading into the game against the Heat.
