Mike D'antoni to appear on Letterman...

It has been reported that Coach Mike D'Antoni will be featured on the Late Show With David Letterman.

Next Tuesday, October 28th, the day before the NBA regular season begins, Coach D'Antoni will present "The Top Ten New York Knicks Promises...

So not to be out down here is the, Top Ten Knick Promises of the 2008/2009 Season

10. We will play an exciting, upbeat tempo style play that will be really fun to watch and completely ineffective.

9. One of the following players will not finish the season a Knick, Stephon Marbury, Eddy Curry, or Zach Randolph

8. You will learn to pronounce the name of Danillo Gallinari, if for no other reason to point out that this was a complete waste of a draft pick at the 6th position.

7. We Will win the Lottery or at least another Lottery Pick.

6. Chris Duhon will be the starting point guard as he is the least overpaid player on the Knicks roster but is still overpaid.

5. Coach D'antoni will not reminsce about the Chicago offer he turned down, and their young core and overall #1 Derrick Rose as it's just to painfull.

4. Eddy Curry and Zach Randolph will finish the season with at least an assist each a feat they have failed to reach to this point in their careers.

3. The Knicks will be forced to buy out at least one player as there is quite simply no market for that players abilities or contract.

2. Any trades based on a players potential, or trades based on aquiring a player coming of a suspect career year or with numbers inflated by being on a team as bad or near as bad as the Knicks will undergo a strict, Isiah Thomas policy comparison test and not be ok'd by upper managment.

and the number promise for the upcoming season...

1. the Knicks promise to win more games than they did last season but still miss the playoffs, and their coach Mike D'antoni promises to be no more than 1/4 crazy as the Knicks previous coach Isiah Thomas.

close to making the list

Patrick Ewing will miss an easy layup but no New Yorker will care
