Positives of the 2007-2008 season
Pretty much, there's nothing positive about this season. The team played terrible defense(Josh Smith and Marcus Camby average more blocks than the entire Knicks team), they did not play hard for a big portion of the season, and they rarely played as a team, which is why they are last place in assists per game, with just 18 assists per game, collectively. The team is headed to the lottery, for the 4th straight season, and they'll finish with a below .500 record, for their 7th straight season. However, these are the few accomplishments for the Knicks, if you even want to consider them accomplishments:
20.3 ppg 4.9 assists
This season, Crawford has managed to average a career high in points and assists, even though the Knicks are currently in danger of finishing with below 23 wins, and of getting the worst record in franchise history.
12.7 points per game
3.2 rebounds per game
3.0 assists per game
78.7% free throws
Robinson is averaging a career high in points, assists, and rebounds, this season. In addition to that, he is also shooting a career high free throw percentage of 78.7%.
With Quentin Richardson playing the worst basketball of his NBA career, the Knicks need a small forward to take his place.Wilson Chandler has not proven for sure that he can be a starter in this league. However, his shotblocking ability, and his effort on offense and on the boards might land him a spot in the Knicks' starting lineup for next season.
Lee has continued to play well, which is a good sign. He's averaging double figures in points, and he's averaging a career high Free throw percentage of 82.3%.
Balkman leads the Knicks in blocks per game. Who Knows? Maybe if his minutes go up, next year, he'll be the Knicks' lead shot blocker for a 3rd consecutive season(Balkman also led the Knicks in blocks per game last year).
Lets Keep the answer serious
Great Thread idea!
I like David Lee's play. I think he may be a starter eventually.
I have always like Wilson Chandler, so I was happy to see him gets some burn
Nate has looked dominent at times, and his erratic play his decreased somewhat (ofcourse not completley gone!)
Zach Randolph not as big a bust as Steve Francis. I know that seems like a joke, but Zach hasnt exactly lost all trade value, so I take victory in that
High Draft pick in a decent Draft. I like us taken Jordan because we have the players in place to allow us to bring him a long;a bit off the subject I guess, but just reaching for the positives here.
Ok thats it, everything else has sucked.
