Seeking an additional opinion on the Knicks' recent hot streak, I called up the pragmatic Jim Cavan (@JPCavan) of Knicker Blogger (ESPN's Truehoop Network) and Bleacher Report to discuss Andrea Bargnani's improved defensive numbers, Raymond Felton's mystique, and Carmelo Anthony's spike in assists. Take a listen.

I’m sitting on a leather couch in an upscale bar on Fulton Street and New York Giant cornerback Prince Amukamura is a few feet to my right. My colleague/friend/socializer Kris Venezia is next to me and we engage in conversation to avoid any awkward stares in our direction, which we knowingly received from many people, including Hannah Storm’s younger daughters to our left.

But with 3-days rest along the trip to London and another 3 on the way back, I believe this mini-vacation over the Atlantic is just what the doctor ordered.

Upon examining the Knicks’ 2012 Roster, a Knicks fan has to be happy. That said, the absence of one “Jeremy Lin” immediately changes the attitude of many. If you can get past the reality of Lin leaving, you‘ll soon warm up to the squad Mike Woodson will lead to the court come October.
