    The Giraffe played well today. As long as he doesn't try to be what he's not, he's a good player for us. Haha I remember the whole arena groaned when he took that jump shot in the 4th quarter and EVERYONE was surprised when it went in.

    Guy is a ROLE PLAYER and we need more players who want to be the glue guys that help us win without the spotlight. Best of all.... he's cheap so I'm damn happy he's on our team.

    He's cheap though? I thought he was still on that contract Thomas gave him?

    He might not be a talented basketball player, BUT he plays with heart and soul and puts his body on the line - something I wasn't able to say about $100 million man Stoudemire in 18 months......

    - he's cheap (veteran minimum),
    - he's a good defender,
    - he creates a little more depth,
    - seems his teammates like and respect him,
    - he wants to be a Knick.

    Nothing against him, I remember when during the media day he answered a couple of questions on a chat and seemed very motivated to prove the fans wrong and become a valuable piece off the bench.

    If there is one compliment I can give to Jeffries is that the man knows how to stand still...

    We don't need players that can only play defense or only play offense. We need well rounded players that can do both.
    Missed layups in the NBA is a big no-no.

    I don't agree at all. All the championship level teams have Jeffries like Role Players for defense. He's plays really solid man defense and great team defense, he's a good role player. I just never want to see him handle the rock on offense.

    Many great teams also have a player off the bench only use for scoring....

    Not every NBA team can be loaded with 2 way players, it's up to the coach to identify what role each player is going to have...

    As i told that knicks chick a while back, JJ has his value. I saw he was 2-8 shooting at one point, which is upsetting because why is he shooting 8 times? but then you realize both Amar'e and Melo were out for this game and shots had to come from everyone. When the shot is open, you take it, even if you are a giraffe.

    but his defense is great and he is a veteran player, a guy that has taken a lot of licks from us fans and keeps on hustling and improving and contributing to the team. He is a great guy for rookies to look at in terms of attitude. works out all the time, always smiles, puts in major hustle minutes, helps out on and off the court. The guy is a class act, despite his offensive woes (and a certain final play of a playoff game) but i'm willing to look past that as he is clearly providing a defensive boost to the team in all areas aside from the 5.

    nonetheless, I appreciate his intangibles and pray he can stay away from blowing it in crunch time

    Default Flip floppers

    There are times when this site harbors the most bipolar fans in the world. One minute JJ is the absolute worst player in the league and everyone wants him shipped out of NY immediately and the next minute he's a valuable role player that we need. LOLOLOL!!

    Make up your minds! Some of you guys only know which way to lean on a game to game basis. Make a decision and stick to it.

    With that said, JJ is a defender only and understands what his strengths are. He does a few things well and honestly every team could use a player like that off the bench (esp at 6'11"). We all agree that he should never be relied on to score. The key to coaching JJ is to only use him as a situational player. If no one from the opposing team is giving us any major problems, JJ should get very little minutes and make room for guys who have a broader skill set.

    Default Props to the Giraffe

    from a Giraffe-hater, I have to give props to Girafferies for his performance
    last night. his defense was outstanding, and if he had any sense of offense,
    HustleLin would've had a dozen dimes. I believe JLin's PG skills are bringing
    out the Giraffe's resurgence, at a time when the Knicks needed their role
    players to step up, Girafferies flopped big time (in a good way).

    However, Pringles love for this guy is still unfounded, the minutes he gets
    (when the Knicks aren't missing their star players) is nuts, and I'd still rather
    see Jerry Jordan get at least 10+ minutes instead of Giraffeman.
