The New York Knicks are back in the playoffs and Madison Square Garden has been a madhouse for the first two games of their series against Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks. It’s been so wild that even Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James took to Twitter with an interesting tweet in regards to the atmosphere.
Man it’s LOUD A** HE🏒🏒 in MSG! That joint ROCKIN

LeBron is absolutely right. The atmosphere inside of Madison Square Garden has been unworldly, headlined of course with superfan Spike Lee jumping up and down in celebration as the Knicks try and advance to the second round.
After all, the Knicks have been waiting a while for a home playoff game. With the coaching of Tm Thibodeau leading the way, they finished the regular season as the 4-seed in the Eastern Conference and earned a draw with the Hawks.
Former Lakers’ first-round pick Julius Randle- who is now a Knicks All-Star and won the Most Improved Player of the Year award– has been phenomenal and a huge reason as to why the Knicks finished as high as they did.
As for LeBron James and the Lakers, they are heading to Staples Center for his first playoff game at home after spending the 2020 playoffs in the Orlando Bubble. If Madison Square Garden is bumping, one can only imagine how insane and how wild Staples Center will be as the Lakers bring back an even 1-1 series record.
