    Here are the new players added to our rotation since the addition of Lin-Sanity....
    Novak/JR/Davis thats 4 new players
    Fool.

    We're obviously a 10(+) man rotation right now, and moving forward.

    Oh:

    Amare has averaged 36+ min a game 4x in his career, not including this year...where he is averaging 33.8.

    Carmelo has averaged 36+ min a game 6x in his career, not including this year...where he is averaging 34.2.

    Stop before you get hurt.

    You just said some dumb **** at the end of otherwise reasonable and wise thought, about D'antoni obviously never being on such a plane of thinking and like the fool he is he would never think about or try it out.

    Truth: ya'll bring up D'antoni like you can't get him out of your head.

    And I wouldn't have called you out, either, cept it was too rich that the entire first quarter of this game you were incessantly yapping about "D'antoni this, D'antoni that", and how stupid it was that Novak was being kept in, and how limited Novak is.

    Well now.
    First of all why do you even care about what I say about Antoni?? One again get his balls out your mouth. Yeah I said It again.

    Secondly, Novak hit some big shots but he doesn't need to play more than Jorts. Sure we can use his 3s but rebounding and defense is more valuable to a championship team. Guess I just taught you something. Why don't you post everything I said about Antoni. I may have mentioned his name twice all night.

    Get off me.

    wow, just watched game on VCR, and just finished reading all comments in this thread. i don't understand the Lin hate whatsoever, i think he could have had 20 dimes tonight if follow-thru's went in. this TRUE PG has singlehandedly made the Knicks respectable, it's not just his shortcomings in first half that allowed Cavs to dominate, it was weak team effort that allowed Kyron Irvington to penetrate and defecate on Knicks.

    the second half was just amazing, some of the best effort I've seen in years, from both first and second units, and JLIN the MAN had everything to do with winning. BDiddy is getting back into the swing of things, but for now, he is exactly what we need off the bench, along with Junior Swish and Nojak. A f*cking punch in the head off the pine! I think Iman's power jam really set the tone for the Knicks turnaround offensively, and he leads the way defensively.

    megaprops to Chandler for a consistently powerful game. i'll keep my STAT comments to myself, but of course, I'd rather see David Lee taking short jumpers and rebounding.

    Until Knicks start losing again consistently (pray no), let's keep Lin as our starting PG and BDiddy leading the 2nd unit energy action squad.

    props to iSayUghh for the Haterade pic, lol man.

    GREAT facking game tonight fellas.

    Anyone notice the logo on the Knicks floor FINALLY changed.

    BTW I started a new association on 2k12 last night and had to boost stats for Lin, Chandler, Jeffries, Melo, and NOVACKAINE...talk about a lack of love.

    What's to say about this win? I felt like we had 2 strong teams out there. What's hilarious to me is how Mike D said that the 2nd unit has been beating the piss out of the starters in practice over the past couple days.. After watching this game, I can understand why; the 2nd unit looked fantastic, while our starters are still obviously working out their chemistry. Lin and Melo both coexisted, but we'll need to see more Lin penetration so he can kick out to Melo at the right times.

    More practice, more practice, more practice. I want to build and build upon this win, and I feel like right now everyone is in great spirits and can't be knocked down. Team chemistry is coming together, and it really seems like guys are bonding.

    Lin had a difficult first half, stopping @ the top of the arch and then kind of getting stuck. As soon as he started driving, things opened up like a virgin fresh out of boarding school. He looked poised and confident out there.

    BDiddy you make me smile ear-to-ear. I love the intensity you bring; you're not scared to push the pace, push your back, and push your teammates. Keep up this energy and keep putting the team first. By the way, has anyone noticed that the JR Smith backwards oop has pretty much been trademarked by them? Seen it 3 times now, converted twice, very sweeet.

    NOVACKATTACK -- nothing more to say here... man..

    Other shoutouts go to Melo (for his dunking and driving), Tyson (for his incredible anchor work), and SHUMPERT for looking like himself and finally converting a sweet megadunk.

    Anyway those are my comments if you care. and if you don't, well then fine.

    GO KNICKS!

    There is no way you take LIN out of the starting line-up.
    Davis played great and I think the role he is in coming off the back injury suits him perfect. I get what your saying but LIN needs the opportunity to lead the team and Davis off the bench will get him in top shape.....As time goes on the dispersment of minutes I assume will be based on productivity.....Most important is we need DAVIS to stay healthy.

    Great second half by the Knicks, dismal first half!

    Glad they woke up before it was too late. For 30 minutes this looked like another wasted effort a la Toronto or Charlotte earlier in the year.

    Our bench is looking fantastic right now, Lin is still doing his thing - good to see he's left that Miami game behind him (Chalmers will get punished by him at some point in the future! :****off

    Chandler had another great double double despite his wrist injury...well and Melo just can't shoot the ball. It's annoying and somewhat sad to watch him shoot all those bricks. His FG% is below 40% for the season right?

    He shot 9 for 16....so at least he is picking better shots and getting to the basket......He played well accept for his NON-Box out which lead to an easy Cav's basket.....better then Amare....who seems to be one of those guys on the runways who directs the planes to the gates....he waives his hands as if telling Kyle Irving where to go.

    Its amazing how you keep Amare safe under your breast for protection. Melo had an efficient shooting night overall (even hit a 3) but you don't even mention STAT once. He shot 4/11 and only had 5 rbs. You know who else had 5 rbs... LIN

    Your Melo hate was totally unneccesary and makes you sound stupid. Check his shot chart (perimeter) first before you make silly comments about his shooting.

    Just because you asked:

    Melo 40.3fg%
    STAT 44.5fg%

    We just played aganst a 10th seeded 13-20 record Cavs team that blew us out in the first half of the game by 17 points.

    Tyson Chandler & Fields have big-respect for Jeremy Lin as their floor leader....
    I can not mention the same about Melo & Stat.
    It was Chandler, Fields, and Lin defensive-charge that brang us back from being down by 17 points in the 3rd quarter.

    This is the second-half of the season where teams are going to play a helluva lot harder than what we just got from the Cavs. If putting Davis & JR Smith into the starting lineup will make Melo & Stat get on the same-page as a veteran lineup....its all good b/c Shump/Fields/Jeff/Novak all JELL-WELL with Jeremy Lin on both sides of the court.

    Melo seemed fine last night.....actually made some easy baskets.....
    I am not a believer in changing the starting PG who has brought our team back from Hell to make Amare feel more comfortable....

    Its Lin's job and YES if he struggles Davis is there........But remember Davis needs to stay healthy and adjust to playing bball again.......His role on this team could not have been better scripted.

    19 points, 13 assists and 1 turnover for Lin and you want to bench him? This guy just went from potentially being a career-long dleaguer to carrying a failing team. People rightfully pointed out his TO numbers. He comes back after the Allstar break, delivering a 13 assist 1 turnover performance. Here is the bleedin' obvious: He is working on his game. He is able to make adjustments and he is smart enough to see what is working and what isn't. Why would you shatter his self esteem by taking the starting spot away from him. And seeing the NBA as a business, why would you the Knicks No. 1 sales argument?

    Chill out. Where have you been last month?

    I grilled STAT nearly every day and was called a STAT-hater so I promised people to keep quiet about STAT for the rest of the season and let him do his thing.

    Melo is not a good shooter, somebody like Durant has a much better stroke.

    40% for the season is pretty bad, especially with so many scorers around him.

    Just for a little comparison: Lebitch is shooting clearly over 50% for the year....and don't call me a hater now just because I said something.

    I think I'm still allowed to state my oppinion. If that's hate it's probably your problem.

    And btw: About 95% of my comment on the game was positive and praise, you just single out one sentence of criticism and make a big deal out of it...I mean seriously bro...

    I just don't get your point. Nobody with basketball knowledge would agree with you that Melo isn't a good shooter. What does Durant's shooting mechanics have to do with Melo??? They're both top 3 at their position so...??

    Why are you even criticizing ANYTHING about Melo when he had a good game???? Just doesn't make sense and makes it look like you just need to nitpick at something.
