One Day I can see David Lee
Is this "PURE-FACT" or optimism?
"One day I can see David Lee" averaging 32 MPG, 18 pts, 10 rbds, 3 ast, 1 stl, and alot of great WINNING hustle that is not recordeed on the stat-sheet.
When we mention Player David Lee on this Knick Team it is not theory, optimism, or guessing, his performance is consistent and based on Pure-Facts. He can switch to all three Frontcourt positions (during any play) and play them well, his defense against Super-Star Players in the frontcourt position vs Center-Shaq, or PF-KG or Duncan, or SF-Pierce or Lebron maybe the same as the average defenders vs these Super-Star Players however, his offensive awareness in his passing-game, running-game, rebounding-game, and hustling for that lose-ball vs Frontcourt Super-Stars has made David Lee performance outstanding and the complimentary-player you want on the court at the "START and FINISH" of each game.
David Lee has become a player you can depend on to do the things that the next player won't.
And the next Player that is following in David Lee footsteps is 6.7 Renaldo Balkman as the Point-Foward who LUV to play trapping-defense in presuring the ball on oponents backcourt and frontcourt players bringing the ball up court. His outstanding performance switching positions as a SF rebouder and running the Point to beat the oponents Center & PF down the court on a fastbreak for a "3 on 1" or a "3 on 2" is another Pure-Fact that can be talked about.
YEAH! that's right, David Lee two season performances has made me a David Lee Fan!!!
hopefully he will improve his weaknesses and maintain his strengths
David lee can't stop lebron, but that doen't make hime a bad defender. Can any one player stop lebron? It took a whole san antonio team to stop him in the finals, and they didn't suceed every night either.
So I hope lee, improves his offense to where he's got a good shot and still brings the high energy dunks and tip ins that has made him so exciting to watch.
Defense, could still use work, but defense is a team effort, as the group improves. It makes individuals seem that much better on defense.
Lets see if he can step it up.
Lee is the best STARTER wid Marbury/Curry
A Zone cripples the Knicks wid Curry in the lineup (he should've spent two years in college), get it right.
With Curry & Marbury being the Prime Starters on this Knick Team the number-one co-existing player on this Knick Roster that should be Starting with Curry & Marbury is Mr. David Lee. Any wise common-sense NBA Coach knows this from watching this team.
David Lee hustling talents are on both Defense and Offense, he is not a One on One player offensively or as a defender he is strictly a TEAM-PLAYER.
David Lee is one of the fewest players that I seen in my many decades of watching the Knicks that does not let the New York crowds & Media atmosphere affect his consistent talents.
There are very few PF in the NBA that you can put in the Starting Lineup with Marbury & Curry and expect to do a better job than PF-David Lee. Marbury & Curry has to many Flaws in their talent that David Lee performance covers for them. Hopefully the Knicks strategy this season is to get Rookie Randolph Morris into a Defensive minded performance at the Center and PF position at blocking-shots so he can get some meaningful playingtime with either offensive-players Curry or Zach.
The Knicks have a Frontcourt Defensive unit in Rookie Randolph Morris, David Lee, and Renaldo Balkman, all three are ferocious rebounders and put-back specialist by playing above the rim ball. However, a certain Knick coach wont let Curry & Zach sit on the bench together to watch a hustling-defense that scores off of their defense.
