New York Tabloids’ Back Pages Make Carmelo Anthony Cry


After another crushing Knicks playoff loss last night, we eagerly checked to see what the New York tabloids made of the Celtics’ 96-93 win (despite Carmelo Anthony’s 42 points) this morning. It didn’t take long to notice a pattern. To see what we mean…here’s the Daily News:

And the Post:

Not that we blame either paper. Sometimes one picture really does say it all, and when the night’s would-be hero does a double facepalm that makes him appear to weep on a night the team could have won, but didn’t (the second such game in a row)…yeah, that was the perfect photo.

If forced to judge between the two, we’re going with the Daily News, because we liked their headline better. And, hey, Post staff: if you happen to see that we liked the Daily News cover better today, and for some reason: 1) care, and 2) decide you have to, say, create another crazy theme cover to even the score…we won’t stop you, is all we’re saying.

    Bullshit klnick should stop putting themselves in a last sec position with the celtics. they have to many weapons, and Ny, does not have any real weapons excecpt amare. get some killer instinct allready.

    I Blame this on Dantoni no way a team of mine would lose up 3 with 21sec remaining. thats just clock management. that why Dantoni is out of here next year. hope he likes fishing.

    That’s right, idiot sports writers who never played a minute of basketball after the Pee Wee leagues…..Both I and one of my sons played ball at a higher level and if you think that there has ever been a coach who didn’t call a play in a time out at the end of a game, you are affirming an image of enormous stupidity. How about asking coach Mike if he didn’t say in the time out…..”Melo, you’ve been doubled every play in this quarter…..If we can get the rock to you on the out of bounds play and are doubled, look to Jeffries under the hoop..he’ll either shoot or hit the cutter……”…What happened? Melo doubled..Passes to Jeffries…Jeffries afraid to shoot and turns into basket to pass to cutter..defender grabs ball all but put into his hands….game over……LOOK AT THE TAPE AND MELO”S FACE AT THAT INSTANT…….WHAT THE >>>>DID JEFFRIES DO? WHAT THE >>>>DID COACH CALL? IF AMARE WAS IN THE GAME>>>>>>MELO, a legendary performance….D’Antonio a genius ! Please let one sports writer say I’m wrong……Stupid is as stupid writes !
