What a Leaper

I was watching the intro to the McDonald's All-America slam dunk contest last night (don't ask) and they showed flashbacks of former winners - including the Knicks own David Lee - who won with a "stand on the baseline, throw ball in air towards basket, stop, rip off shirt, gather in ball and dunk" dunk. It was pretty cool.

Sadly, this clip may turn out to be the highlight of the season despite last night's win over Cleveland - which win, by the way, underscores my point in yesterday's post. There's no way Jordan lets his team lose that game last night. But Lebron let a couple of early hits by the Knicks sap some of his aggressiveness attacking the basket - settling instead for jumpers (not his forte).

The Knicks have an uphill battle for the last playoff spot - a game and a half out with very few gimmes on the schedule. And onme of those gimmes is a game against Philly - who I believe is undefeated against the Knicks so far this year.

Look for my 2007 Mets season preview tomorrow.
