What’s New – Apr. 30, 2017

THE THREE DAY SPECTACLE WE CALL THE NFL DRAFT JUST CONCLUDED YESTERDAY.  AS A PROUD NY GIANTS FAN I LISTENED TO JERRY REESE’S REMARKS ABOUT EACH PICK.  ONE THING THAT STRUCK ME WITH THE TEAM THAT HAS WON FOUR CHAMPIONSHIPS IN MY LIFETIME IS HOW  THE TEAM GOES ABOUT SELECTING PLAYERS…  A COACH’S SON.. THE SON OF A MARINE OFFICER.. A YOUNG MAN WHO WAS  RECRUITED BY HARVARD, AND A PLAYER WHO HAS A HISTORY WITH THE TEAM’S STAR PLAYER.

THE GIANTS HAVE BUILT A CULTURE OF WINNING THAT DEMANDS A CERTAIN PERSONALITY TO SUSTAIN ITSELF.  THE GIANTS LOOK INTO A PLAYERS BACK GROUND AND SELECT CERTAIN PLAYERS WHO FIT THEIR CULTURE.

SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND AS WE WATCH PHIL JACKSON ATTEMPT TO BUILD A CULTURE FOR OUR NEW YORK KNICKS.
