FIRST WIN? KNICKS SAY 'NYET THIS TIME' - NO WINNER IN CONTEST OF DREADFUL DISASTERS


FIRST WIN? KNICKS SAY 'NYET THIS TIME' - NO WINNER IN CONTEST OF DREADFUL DISASTERS p. 129 PDF

THERE were no winners in the Hudson River Loser Bowl yesterday, though the score had the Knicks beating the 0-13 Nets , 98-91.

In fact, the biggest loser at the Meadowlands wore a Knicks uniform - Nate Robinson.

If this game already wasn't a mockery between the NBA's two dregs, here was Robinson with five-tenths of a seconds left in the first quarter, taking an inbounds pass in the backcourt, turning and shockingly firing at his own basket.

Did Robinson feel that sorry for the winless Nets ? The ball rattled in. Luckily for the viability of Robinson's NBA career, zeros flashed on the clock - just barely - and the basket did not count for the Nets .

When Robinson walked to the bench, coach Mike D'Antoni chewed him out. Even Eddy Curry yelled at Robinson. Robinson didn't play the second half.

Yes, the Loser Bowl had its poster boy and its symbolic moment.

"I told him don't mess with the game," D'Antoni said. "Don't play around with the game. There's a lot of guys out there who need minutes. You shouldn't do that."

It was Robinson's idea of a joke, perhaps giddy the Knicks had passed on Allen Iverson the day before. The arrival of A.I. would have meant Robinson's ouster from the rotation.

Robinson claimed he paused before shooting, making certain no time was on the clock. More likely, Robinson thought half-a-second wasn't enough time to legally catch and shoot at his own basket.

"He was like, 'what if it went in," Robinson said. The shot did go again, albeit an instant too late [or just late enough]. "I told him I waited till the buzzer went off."

The Izod Center was two-thirds full - announced at 14,050 but visibly less than that. Back in the 1990s and earlier this decade, Nets -Knicks sold out - Knicks f a n s flocking to T h e Sw a m p because they were shut out of the jammed Garden.

Instead, the main attraction yesterday for the drove of kids was cartoon character Dora the Explorer, who obviously was there exploring the art of losing. Dora declined comment on which team is worse.

The Nets and Knicks combined record stands at 3-22 - two talentdevoid clubs playing for July 2010 with cap space as their biggest weapon. When D'Antoni was asked if it looked like a battle of two losing ballcubs, the coach laughed.

"You can say that, not me," D'Antoni said. "It looked like we won. That's all I care about. They've had so many injuries it's hard to count."

One day after they passed on signing Iverson, the Knicks showed, yes, they still need him. They moved to 3-9 with a two-game winning streak. But the Knicks come back to reality today at the Garden vs. a real NBA team, the Celtics.

The Knicks are still bad, just not as bad as the Nets , whose coach Lawrence Frank has to be on thin ice with a few more Ls now that Devin Harris is back. The Knicks led much of the game, and as many as by 15 points, but folded. In the final minutes, the Nets had four shots - all bricks - that would have given them a tie or lead.

All the Knicks accomplished yesterday was avoiding the humiliation of being the Nets' first victim.

"Every time they got close, you're thinking about it," Curry said.

This victory would have felt sweeter had Curry looked the part of the offense's future focal point as he did in Indiana on Wednesday. D'Antoni and team president Donnie Walsh reasoned they passed on Iverson with the belief Curry would emerging into a major force. But he followed up his strong debut in Indiana with a certifiable disaster - a clumsy, 1-for-5 performance with three turnovers in 12:29.

The Knicks lost Friday when they chose to stand pat. Yesterday, there was no winner, just two dreadful Basketball teams whose seasons already look over in November.
