When Amar'e is back...
At full strength we have to be the deepest team in the NBA.

"The Knicks are back" - Amare
with amare's injury record since last season, lets just presume he will be out again for alot of the games. and this will allow woodson to shift anthony to pf alot and get more playing time for iman/brewer and prigs
i can see
...alot around midseason
lets just pretend for now amare is gonna be a post season player like wallace from now on...
and we have better chemistry when our offense is just anthony
trading amare would be the best case scenario moving forward...gotta cut him loose...
I'd love to see Melo at PF with Smith at SG however hasn't Melo come out and said he doesn't want to play PF? Is that just a PR move because of Amare or does he genuinely not want to?
It would be great if Melo got a lot of time playing PF this season. Miami hasn't bothered to add a C so they are obviously happy to play "small" with Bosh at C and Lebron at PF. We need Melo there to match up with Lebron.
^ yeah but I'm not talking about game 2 I'm talking about in the playoffs. Game 2 is one game, but when we face them in the playoffs we are going to need to match up well against them, and if STAT hasn't learned to defend within the next 6 months we won't match up against them.
PG - Kidd(34)/Prigioni(24)
SG - Brewer(34)/White(12)
SF - Anthony(38)/Novak(20)
PF - Thomas(28)/Copeland(20)
C - Chandler(36)/Camby(18)
This is my dream because I have a bad feeling about Felton, Amar'e and Smith being negative factors for the Knicks.
It doesn't look sexy, but Melo ball would be at it's prime. Melo is surrounded by A level defenders and guys who get rebounds and can play help defense....good passers and athletes. Felton is too mediocre and Smith can win me over, I'm just not over his horrible inconsistency from last year.
Amare has no place on this team.
Start of the season
--------Chandler------- =Bench= ---------Camby-------
Middle of the season, when everyone is hopefully healthy
-------Chandler-------- =bench= -------Camby-------
Stoudemire---Anthony ====== Copeland----Novak
Think Prig is too much of a non scoring threat to allow him to play long stretches. He should be in there to keep the offense flowing and to keep up the ball movement bu i think Woody overplayed him tonight.
Finally a coach who knows when to take a timeout. And can actually design a play and execute off of one. Really makes a difference.
It does feel good not to have an inept head coach.
