    Default HOUSTON's shape

    hey guys, i read that Allan houston said that he feels better day after day, but his body tells him to go step by step... he also said that he is where he wants to be at this time. He said he feels confident about being at 100% for the start of the training camp in October.

    My question is :
    Do you, guys, think that Houston will be really OK for next season ? And if he is ok, do you think he will finish the season at 100% ? How do you see him and his shape for season 2004/2005 ?

    i hope he will be 120%.

    go ny, go knicks

    i think Houston will be good to go for next season. He wont be the Houston we've seen in past years, but he'll be much better than last year. And if by chance he gets reinjured or something, that just means more minutes for Crawford. It's a $155 million win win situation.

    I agree with e_D that Houston will certainly be improved physically over last year. I do think he will have some complications as the season persists. It won't have the same negative effect that his injuries of last season now that Crawford is in New York.
    On offense we are set now, especially if players like Tim Thomas and Mike Sweetney find a way to mesh into the new system. Who knows, it's a possibility that Ariza may have a good rookie season too.

    I think Ariza WILL have a great season IF he gets the time. I have a feeling that he is ready to contribute immediately, something about the way he plays exudes that. I doubt Wilkens will give him alot of play time though. (see FWill and Sweetney last season) Wilkens second option at SF seems to be Shandon ( ) and now that we have a solid backcourt, Penny will be seeing more SF minutes as well. As much as I want to see Ariza get the time, I doubt he will. Even though I feel he can make an impact immediately.

    Man, I'm way off topic.

    i think he will see time. sweetney got alot of playing time last year. (not in the playoffs though). and this new guy i think will be one of the best 2nd round rookies this year.

    Welcome. You and every other knick fan hopes the same. But I take Houston's word that he will be ready for start of the season. I think the real question is that will he last a whole season??

    You better hope he's healthy and plays well, because that's the only way to ght rid of him for something quality in return. Personaly i hope he returns in better form. I like houston, he got game. He also has more heart than given credit for. But he still needs to work on his D! A healthy and determine houston is a dangerious wepon in the leauge. Every one will see that this season, with our younger more athletic team. We gotta really pray that he's gonna be 120% this year.

    I know this is gonna sound nuts, but I know this psychic and she told me that the Knicks are going to be better this season... which we all knew that. But she also said that they are going to be off the hook and really good on the 2005 - 2006 season. I know this doesn't mean squat and its probably all bologne but I wanted to share it with you guys.

    And now back to the topic: I don't think Houston is gonna be fully ready this season. He is definetely gonna be playing more but I don't see him going alot of minutes. He is gonna take it slow and let Crawford do his thing. I wish Ariza would get some minutes too, but he will probably be on the injury list cause he still developing. Remember that the roster can only have 12 active players and 3 on the injury list. Who you guys think are going to be on the injury list???

    I say put Shandon on IR since it looks like with playing time, Ariza will be better than him by season's end. We could also put Brewer or Moochie on the IR. The last spot is up in the air so I dunno what could be done.. but I really wanna see Ariza play this year.

    I as I'm sure everybody would love to see Houston Healthy. If he is, He really could be a difference maker. I think the Knicks sould just buyout Moochie and Anderson. Brewer and Crawford both can back up Starbury or Houston, so the other guys are just a waste of resoures. If the Knicks feel like wasting less money, why don't they put ME on the roster. I'd probably play as much minutes as Shandon Anderson will...which is like ZERO!! I could use the money and the fame. Isiah, if you're listening holla at a playa!! LOL!!!
