David Lee and the Knicks
19 points per game, 10.9 rebounds, 3.0 assists, .3 blocks
Chris Bosh and the Raptors
24.0 points per game, 11.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.1 blocks
The Raptors are currently on a 2 game losing streak. With a win, they will reach .500. The Eastern Conference is so weak, a .500 record will likely guarantee a playoff berth.
The Knicks are currently 1.5 games out of 8th place. A Knick win and a Chicago loss will get the Knicks within .5 games of the 8th and final playoff spot.

I hate The Celtics a little more today
Last night I cheered for Boston for the first time in my life because they were playing The Bulls and a Bulls loss and a Knick win tonight would have given us the 8th spot, and The Celtics let me down so I hate them even more today!
Now the coach is being a D&^%

Other GM's don't want to get a player that is getting into it with a coach, and DA is growing the list every week. Robinson, Curry, Hughes, soon Hill, hey, your getting half the bench.
I sort of liked the guy, when he was trying everything and with some defense, he mastered a good December, but as I thought, he has lost this team for the year with the head games, DNP's, sitting players when they could and want to contribute. You don't even give them a chance. This guy, and his high school basketball coach brother need to head back to WV. He is not going to be too attractive to players boys, if your looking for 2010, you don't get arguments in the press and they are coming big time. Agents are making quotes, trades asked for and we are not even at the All Star Break.
Lee is driving his price up, Gallo is the only one that may develop, but not into the best shooter a pro head coach ever saw, please.
He said his brother was great addition, with all his high school experience with the young players like Hill and Lee. One, Lee had a better coach with KV at Chaminade in high school, a tad better coach with Billy D in Florida, I don't think he needs the head coaches brother with only a career high school coach. Yes, that was a quote from coach DA, wonder what the brother pulls down?
Two, I don't see our top draft pick averaging over 5 minutes a game this year. First you screw up the team chemistry, next it will be the media (and New York dishes out better than anywhere), then, like us fans, we will tune out. Watching a group that doesn't get along our has tension all over it is not entertainment. Look at the faces during the time outs and down the bench. Some are talking to each other and laughing, he has lost his troops. Curry, Hughes, Robinson, Harrington, Jeffries, Hill they are thinking about, who will I be for next year. Hill is wondering if this is it. All got miles left on them though, no, not superstars, but surely off the bench players that many teams will use. The older guys may play for a couple million, not bad work if you can get it. Look want A.I. is making, the just want to play and win.
Time for Datline, then read the boxscore, I am sure Duhon got his 30 plus minutes, Gallo also, even if they are having a terrible night. Don't want to be fair weather, but this year is getting more ugly by the week.
