    PF-Stat & Jorts
    SF-Melo & Balkman

    We were suppose to see the Knicks use "THREE" bigmen lineups:
    Three dangerous frontcourt weapons
    1) Jordan/Stat/Balkman
    2) Tyson/Jorts/Melo
    3) Tyson/Stat/Melo

    All 6 of our bigmen were suppose to be working-out together to show
    domination in the paint by boxing-out together, creating double screens,
    and always creating pick n rolls, give n go, for our backcourt with Melo/Stat.

    The thought of headcoach Jax, or Sloan, or Pop, or Carlisle, Thib, or Scott
    having our 6-bigmen in a rotation our record at best would be 12-1 at worst
    10-3 right now
    (not 6-7).
    Someone please cue the Curb Your Enthusiasm picture of Larry and Jeff laughing their ****ing asses.

    Sorry to say, but it's tough to take seriously your judgement of talent, given how ass-backwards, beyond-belief, epic wrong you were about Gallo. And the conspiracy theories you swirled around trying to vindicate yourself.

    But, even more telling, is that you could essentially replace Jerome Jordan....with Earl Barron....in this thread, and yet not a single thing would need to be changed in your post.

    Tyson Chandler is off to one of his best seasons ever. Likewise, Carmelo. We are also getting major contributions from critically maligned 2nd rounder Harrellson. Not to mention, that "not ready" 1st round guard we reached for who was said to be limited for his career bc he could never get a good shot going...Ya....

    And you wanna bitch and put out some more conspiracy theories because an unpolished rook who wasn't even signed last year and a ****, fringe NBA'er is getting sent to the D league?

    We could add big man Amare Stoudemire to that list of bigs having exemplary seasons under coach D'antoni -- much like Stoudemire did last year -- when we add a starting NBA point guard to the roster, and D'antoni can work his magic with a consistent lineup,

    Like he did last year, when he raped the accuracy of your predictions and judgements about coach and team.

    u are lost....u forgot what happen when Melo got injured and " a no- playoff-
    strategy coach Karl" had to give Balkman playingtime....5 straight wins from
    Billups/JRSmith/Balkman/K.Mart/Nene.

    Coach Karl was never going to make it pass the first round without Billups
    defensive-team-leadership.
    Do u really think K.Mart, JR.Smith, W.Chandler, and Felton was happy with
    coach Karl no-strategy in the postseason games? losing to one of his ex-
    teammates who is a headcoach now McMillian.
    The 4-players are MIA in Denver this season.

    It was clear and obvious the Knicks trading Balkman was a coach to
    coach trade, two weeks after Camby was traded to the Clippers.
    Dantoni didnt like Balkman calling all the shots to the players in the summer
    league game yelling at Gallo for 3 quarters. When Gallo played injured,
    Balkman played injured too. A week after the summer league game Balkman
    was traded for two Denver players we buy-out two weeks later.

    Balkman's "tazman-hustle" off the bench as a rookie out played Jefferies on
    both sides of the court. Rookie Balkman & 2nd season David Lee made
    the Isiah's three 6.11 starters take a backseat on the bench that season.
    Kiya,

    Can you please smack yourself in the face and try to realize that you're talking about Renaldo Balkman... Balkman my dude.. This is Balkman you're defending here... smh

    Please return to sanity my good Kiya.

    And also.. fyi George Karl is one of the best coaches in the league.


    For crying out loud.. I've never seen anyone make so many excuses for such a **** player. Jesus.

    Listen if Balkman was 6'11'' or 7' with his ability and hustle he'd be getting minutes. I think you could easily justify giving him JJ's minutes if that were the case, but it just isn't.. So he's stays gettin bench splinters as Clyde said lol.

    If that was true, Slavko Vranes would still be our starting center.

    Energy, action and hustle are attributes that make a difference. Dallas' best defender was Marion, not Chandler. Balkman actually plays like Marion, which is the point you're missing by Kiyaman.

    No. Marion is a much better scorer, defender and rebounder than Balkman. That's why he plays. He may play like Marion, but he aint Marion, which is why he gets no burn.
