“The players change but the game stays the same”
The New York Knicks and The Chicago Bulls have history. The type of history that cannot be erased. Regardless of who is wearing each teams jersey.
As much as is made about the rivalry of the past between The Knicks & The Heat. The one between the Bulls is the one that gets by blood flowing. Afterall, we pretty much owned the Heat in the 90’s. Chicago owned us.
Revenge is best served cold.
We can never go back and erase the pain and misery served up by The Chicago Bulls and a gentleman who donned the #23 jersey.
What we can do is make sure we never feel that type of pain again at the hands of the Bulls.
Tomorrow should be the beginning of Rivalry Rebirth of sorts. Two teams on the up-swing but not ready for championship contention. Two teams ready to make the next step towards becoming contenders.
In order to make that step, one will have to step over another.
“One small step for man, one giant step for Knick-kind”
