    No chance Lin will stay the featured player once they return, they'll take their jump shots (especially Melo) and ruin our chemistry.

    Give me one PROVEN point why it'll not be like that?

    All I know is the numbers are on my side in the past 3 games without them.

    Now I get hated on this board because I love our current (winning) rotation???

    Very weak man, very weak! You gotta get that weak stuff outta here......

    My rotation ****s on your rotation, with fraud Melo and fraud Stoudemire startin, any day!
    Spre, i see your point, but i think it was more TD, killing our momentum than STAT and MELO.How many minutes did he play last night, i didn't see him, as long as our 2 stars keep the ball moving when they return, we'll be fine.Just keep TD on the bench.

    This is why there's something wrong with you.

    You seem to not be able to differentiate between "not playing well right now" and "can't play well at all."

    Those are two different things. Our current rotation won't be able to sustain a 7-game series, lol.

    The difference between me and you, is that I want to win a championship...not just win in the regular season. Rosters like these are fun to watch, and can win a bunch of one-off games, but when you have to play the same team in two days, then again on thursday, then again on Saturday, you'd better have a star or two on that roster.

    So your stuff is the weakest of the weak. You can have 45+ wins in the regular season, and I'll dispatch of you in 4-5 game in the first round (Denver).

    To win a championship, you need a total of 16 wins against 4 teams. Can this current rotation pull off beating the same 4 teams, a total of 16 times? Hell no.

    Is that a possibility with STAT, Melo, an orchestrating, heady, smart, gutsy PG, and a supporting cast of defenders, shooters, and glue guys? Why not?

    +1, very logical. This is pretty much it right here at the end of the day.

    But we were swept by a bad Boston Team (got obliterated by Miami in the second round)!!!!!!!!

    And we had two 'superstars' on the team.

    You are right about Denver, but they had to play in a very strong Western Conference last season.

    Right now I don't fear anybody in the East except Miami. Chicago still rely heavily on Rose and there are questionmarks behind Deng's and Hamilton's health.

    Boston are a shadow of themselves and probably won't make it out of the first round.

    Philly, Indiana, Atlanta and Orlando haven't done anything so far that scares me, we've beaten Orlando and Philly already while playing bad earlier in the season.

    And btw: I want the Knicks to win a championship too

    dude we outplayed them the first two games but got boned by the refs...remember gay-g tripping douglas and the phantom foul on melo, as well as a myriad of other non calls in bostons favor? remember TWO SUPERSTARS getting hurt and not being able to finish the series? if this roster played boston and lost lin and jeffries they'd lose games 3 and 4 by a combined 70 points. you said you were gonna stop with this **** but you're just getting more and more delusional.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Knicks made the Finals... I would be if they won (especially if they had to face a fully healthy Clippers line-up, including a 100% CB), but I wouldn't be surprised if this team made it to the Finals.

    Dantoni could play 2 different teams and play the one winning majority of the minutes. I like the way shump, Lin, Giraffe and Novack play together. So you have a first unit of Fields, Melo, Amar'e, Chandler and guard rotate. keep everyone fresh for the long run. just a thought

    Yeah, but that's more a Coach Karl 10-man-deep way. While it would be nice, I doubt MDA will suddenly change.

    Agreed 100%.

    I understand where Spree is coming from looking as a fellow hardcore Knicks fan. I haven't had this much fun watching Knicks games since last year (remember when we were 16-9 about to play Boston and Miami?). But do we want to have a week or two of regular season wins or a championship?

    I say we all want dat championship.

    Do you guys remember how amazing Melo was the one year the Nuggets made the conference finals? He maintained being team oriented and selfish in perfect harmony. Albeit a veteran like Billups helped that process, but if we can get THAT Carmelo Anthony, with this newfound sensation in Lin, and a soon to be revitalized STAT (finally has a legit PG again!) we can be something special.

    Especially with D'antoni devising this offense, and gritty role players like Tyson, Giraffe, Shump, Fields, Harrelson, Walker, who will defend their hearts out. I really like our chances.

    But the main thing is which Melo comes back from the groin injury.

    Chauncey Billups was terrible using that pick and roll. Compare what Billups did to what Lin is doing. Night and day.

    Considering that is one of our coach's main staple, not being to effectively use that really crippled us.

    And don't forget in that Boston series that Billups got hurt in Game 1, Amare got hurt early in Game 2. We were actually winning in the 1st game until Billups got hurt, and our offense freaked out. And Game 2 onwards was bascially Melo trying to beat the Celdicks by himself. (Unless Anthony Carter is your idea of a good role player lol).

    Who knows our star power alone might have been able to beat Boston even though the pieces DIDN'T mesh. That's what makes basketball so different than other sports. You need a star. So can never hurt to have 2.

    I just don't see any reason why we would be a different team all of a sudden once they return.

    They'll still take their 15-20 shots a night, Melo will hold up the ball a lot and shoot threes at a low percentage, our role players who have been brilliant without them will fade back into irrelevance, our defense and rebounding will be worse, we'll play with less energy as a team and the basketball will be less enjoyable to watch.

    Soo you honestly believe this Knicks as they are better without Melo and Amare can compete in the playoffs?

    You need to start looking at the big picture and stop living in the now, in the playoffs you need superstars this Knicks team would get eliminated in the first round like last year.

    The Knicks need yes NEED Melo and Amare but both of these guys are gonna have to adjust to playing harder D and better team basketball.
