    Balkman is what he's always been.

    A good hustle player that can help out a team like ours that could use rebounding from the second unit.

    That's what we should use him as, and I feel he can be very effective in that role.

    8 boards (3 of which were offensive rebounds), 6 points, 1 steal, 2 blocks, 1 assist in 16 minutes. His shooting stats - though atrocious- were no different to the rest of the team.

    I mean he's legitimate enough to play over Jeffries

    The Knicks almost made the playoffs using a frontcourt lineup Curry/Lee/Balkman
    in 2006-7 season. Balkman boxing-out helped David Lee grab a career 20 rebounds
    in one game. I like the idea of Bibby/Shump/Taz starting the 2nd quarter.
    Balkman offense performance need a pass-first PG so he could score within
    10 feet of basket (he's not a jump shooter) put-backs, shots in the paint,
    and alot of practice shooting foul-shots should be Balkman duties.
    Balkman services would fit nice in certain Knicks frontcourt lineups....
    Amare/Melo/Taz, or Tyson/Melo/Taz, or Tyson/Amare/Taz/Shump/Bibby.

    When the season start....Im certain our headcoach will put Jefferies in the
    lineup above while putting Balkman in 3rd tier lineups with players.....
    Jordan/or Jorts/or Hunter/or Green/or Jefferies/or Fields/or Shump
    We were the few who knew about the truth of Balkman back in 2007.

    Haha...no doubt.

    I also remember his first stint in NY. He's an energy guy that can occasionally do what we've seen. But he's not in the rotation, especially MDA's if not for the schedule this year.

    great energy guy. im loving his game. he plays well and efficient. crashes the boards, dives for the lose balls and comes up with the hustle play to get everyone going. basically a momentum shifter. looks like he's improved and ready to thrive under the opportunity. like what im seeing. definitely warrants minutes

    He's kinda doing what Fields did early last season. He's an important player.

    You have to be kidding me.......

    If you asked every NBA team if they would want Fields or Balkman right now every single team would take Fields....

    we tried to get rid of Balkman...NO TAKERS...

    I'm a fan of Fields, but don't act like Fields has done anything that good other than about two and a half-three months. There are guys like Balkman who just never get the playing time for whatever reason.

    I'm pretty stunned, too.

    Comparing Balkman to the impact Fields made (in his rookie season)....SMH, broheems!

    Balkman couldn't be *given* away last year! Fields was an integral part of a give and take for Melo!

    He has had some good pre-season games for us (in a pre-season where the quality of overall play is more erratic than even usual)...Let's see what he can do in a real game this year

    EDIT -- to date, Balkman's greatest signifigence is far and away simply being a butchered Isiah Thomas pick, when Rondo fell, and that the 'Dicks ended up picking him up.
