You sure thats the only way? Both teams in rebuilding mold(somewhat rebuilding) Both teams have players that used to play for the other team. They have something to prove to each other.kukoc4ever said:The only way Bulls/Knicks becomes like the old days is if both teams become legit title contenders.
Anyone see that happening anytime soon?
There is a rivalry of sorts now.truebluefan said:I can see a natural rivalry started. I mean look at the bulls board. Some of our biggest threads are about the Knicks, their coach and our former players.
I beg to differ. This is about Secaucus. Those were about crap.kukoc4ever said:There is a rivalry of sorts now.
But, it is not a restored rivalry from the 90s. That rivalry was deciding who could very well win the NBA title.
Bulls/Knicks 2005 is not anywhere near as important as those classic battles.
For three dreary seasons of Bulls rebuilding, Tyson Chandler and Eddy Curry represented hope for a better future.
During those years, Bulls fans could console themselves with a belief that the gifted young big men would someday mature and improve, giving the team a size advantage against most of the NBA.
So even though the Bulls have a brighter future with a new nucleus of players, it will be sad in some ways to see Chandler and Curry square off as opponents when the Bulls visit the New York Knicks on Wednesday. That old hopeful feeling has officially flown away.
That is, if both of them play. Curry missed Saturday’s win over Philadelphia with a left calf strain, and Chandler wasn’t planning to wish his longtime friend a speedy recovery.
“I hope he waits until after we play them. I’m tired of battling these big fellows,” Chandler said after spending consecutive nights guarding Tim Duncan and Yao Ming.
Curry’s injury is not thought to be serious, so chances are he’ll be out on the floor, along with two other ex-Bulls, Antonio Davis and Jamal Crawford. But most of the focus will be on Curry vs. Chandler.
“The funny thing is, I didn’t realize it was coming up so quickly,” Chandler said. “It’s not going to be everything people are making it out to be.
“I’m pretty sure he’s going to have a lot of things he wants to prove to the (Bulls) organization, but I don’t think there’s necessarily anything we need to prove to him.”
“I know my team won,” Chandler said when asked his memories of the game. “It was a good game between the both of us. I know they babied him a lot, called a lot of fouls.”
That initial matchup took place during one of Curry’s heavier stages. Often billed as “Baby Shaq” when he was young, Curry was at least a teenage Shaq who shopped in the husky aisle during this era.
“Man, he was big at that point,” Chandler said. “Huge. He was definitely 300-plus. He had to be like 315, and I was about 200 pounds. He was fouling me, but they were giving him every ticky-tack call.”
Chandler and Curry bonded as Bulls teammates. Chandler said he’s spoken with Curry frequently by phone since the trade.
It's official -- I'll be squiring the miz (and vice versa) to tomorrow's game!mizenkay said:miz will be there!
