'We Don't Duck Any Smoke' - Donte DiVincenzo Reminding Everyone Why The Knicks Aren't Scared Of The Sixers, Should Be America's Team

All this talk about how the Knicks should have also tanked the final game like loser franchises out there. Oh why would they dare be the 2 seed and play the Sixers or Heat? Well, this is why. They don't duck any smoke. They have Jalen Brunson. They have guys like Donte and Hart and the tag team of I-Hart and Mitch. They have OG. There's a reason the Knicks are the 2 seed. They shouldn't be scared of anyone! 

We live in a world where everyone loves to make fun of NBA teams for tanking. They can tank for Wembanyama or who they play in the playoffs. Not the Knicks. If you think about it, they really are America's team. They are everything that people claim they want back in the NBA. We're gonna see Robinson and Hartenstein come out with bats and treat it like 90s ball. They have a coach who doesn't give a shit about what others say. They have three best friends from college playing together.

Speaking of that, you gotta give the Knicks another advantage there. Brunson, Donte and Hart all have raised banners in Philadelphia. They know Wells Fargo. Can't say this version of the Sixers have had the same amount of success in Philadelphia as the Knicks. But they aren't going to run and hide. They aren't going to purposely lose games to hide from a team they went 3-1 against this year. 

I love this mindset. This is how you get rewarded from basketball gods. You don't tank and go on a run. You don't hide from an opponent when you're the better seed. You play the game, show up, beat whoever is in your way. This isn't the Knicks of old, we're in a new era. Now hit the real music.
