New York Reporters talk

Here are new reasons everyone should hate the Knicks.  See New York Observer Article

... The Knicks? They inspire something else. They inspire anger. They inspire hatred. ... There is an unmitigated loathing for this team, for the men who run the operation. ... Knicks fans hate these Knicks. HATE them."
Afterward, the reporters complained about what they viewed as a patronizing lecture (from Isiah). One called him a "psycho." It was, in all respects, a typically bitter start to a day in the life of a New York Knicks beat reporter.

Not that it was always like this. After all, covering the Knicks was once one of the most coveted beats in the country.

"It's Madison Square Garden, it's New York City, it should be one of the top beats in New York," said Newsday beat reporter Alan Hahn.

Instead: "It's maddening. What it should be and what it is--it's a shame."

Frank Isola, the 12-year Knicks-beat veteran for the Daily News, said, "It used to be fun here. Now, there are some nights when you're trying to talk your boss out of sending you here and maybe lie and tell him you're sick or something."

"I'll admit," said Howard Beck, the New York Times Knicks reporter, "that the beat makes me miserable."
