NFT: New York Sports looking up

Archer : 11/19/2020 9:34 am
It appears that New York sports teams are starting to look like they have a plan and you can see a light at the end of the tunnel

The Giants look like they have a great future with Judge’s Stewardship
The Rangers look primed to become perennial Winners
The Mets with new ownership look like a big market team with aspirations to be competing for a championship
The Yankees are the Yankees always competing for a championship
The Nets are one of the favorites to win the East
The Knicks land Leon Rose look like they finally have a plan and they may have found a core player in Obi
The Islanders are a very good team that will compete with the Rangers

The laggards are
The Jets who can start on the road towards relevance if they get Lawrence
The Devils have good talent they have been underachieving however they need to learn how to win close games

Optimistically 2020 could be the harbinger of good times for most of the New York sports teams

Sorry it is Odi not Obi
well one thing is for sure

it absolutely couldn't get much worse right around week 7 or so of this season. Talk about the lowest point in NYC/NJ sports history...literally it was.

We have in fact in the longest title drought in NYC sports history. Giants 2011 are the last. We have never gone longer. Worse, it's a lack of overall winning let alone a title that has sunk this area to never before seen depths.

Things (NYG, NYK and NYM notably) do look better but it needs to come to fruition first. I'm a Yanks fan but I hope the Mets figure things out too.

Hockey is in good shape. MLB looks to be in good shape. Football is the big ? but the Giants appear to be on the upswing too. Fuck the stupid Jets.
I'm happy with the direction of the Devils

They have a lot of young talent but they desperately need a true top pairing defenseman before they are ready to compete for a playoff spot.
I think the Knicks are still awful

and will be awful for a long, long time. The LA model works when you get Lebron and Davis, but until the Knicks can get that kind of talent, count me skeptical.
The great thing about the Mets getting good again is you are certainly

going to see Woody Johnson start to try to grab headlines again to get his fans attention back. He's been pretty quiet on that front lately.
