Knicks Players Have Picture of Championship Trophy Over Each Locker

by March 26, 2012

Time and again this season, we’ve seen members of the New York Knicks’ organization (and some notable outsiders) proclaim that the team has a chance to win it all. And now, each player’s locker has been re-decorated with an image of the ultimate prize. From the NY Post: “Over every Knicks player’s locker at Madison Square Garden, there is now a picture of an NBA championship trophy. The new décor was added prior to halftime of last night’s 101-79 rout over the Pistons. ‘I think we just want to get our focus back,’ Tyson Chandler said. ‘I think there’s been talk around the staff and amongst us that we’ve got to know what we’re fighting for.’ It was not known who put the photos up, although Knicks manager of player security Max Cayard was involved. ‘He told me to bring my ring out today,’ Chandler said, referring to his championship ring from last season’s title run with the Mavericks, ‘and I’m guessing he talked to somebody and put the trophies up.’ Carmelo Anthony likes the photo additions. ‘They’re inspiring,’ he said. ‘It’s motivating just to see that. It gives us something to look up to, look forward to and we know where we want to be at. A lot of work that we want to do to get there.'”
