I think one of the reasons that people were so quick to hate on stat, labeling him a glass man and such, was due to how we aint really see any of his injuries. That takes alot of the empathy factor out of it. With injuries like melo when he fell down vs LAL, shump tearing up his ACL, Felton and his finger, i t was visual, we saw it happen and kind of placed ourselves in their shoes, andd thought how much pain wed be in, thinking, "yeah id need time to come back from that"
A ruptured cyst aint no joke. It could really hinder your walking running jumping, especially for a pro athlete. So we didnt get a mental image of the pain he was in, leading us to think it cant be that bad.
This guy is obviously still hurt. Though we are doing well, he sees how many bodies are down. Hes gutting it out and is willig to contribute as much as coach needs him to.
Its real sad how quickly ppl jumped on him, and i know sports and NY especially is a What have you done for me lately thing, but please dont forget how this man carried our team when he first got here. Remember he dropped 30+ for 9 straight games?That was the most hope and joy id had in a decade of watching knicks basketball
Just as fans, knick fans, lets show stat some support. Hes coming off probably the most horrible year of his adult proffesional life (aside from getting married),and hes getting back into shape . Hes gonna fjnd his niche, and shutup all these hatin *** analysists and "fans".
Im so ready to watch this team when we got all our pieces back rolling. So damn excited.
