    WE need to come out hot in our brooklyn "2nd home" opener...

    atleast JR will be back for that game so we should get some much needed scoring help off the bench.

    I hope melo is not MIA for most of the night like last night, we need big statement games from him during these first 4 big games. Need to put our foot down and show we are back...

    i dont like the idea of starting thomas at the 4 and dont like the idea of melo at the 4 vs BKLYN...hes gonna get worn out by humphs and brook on switches..

    I know some of you are probably against this, but i would really like to start copeland at the 4 while amare gets back...(if camby is still a no go) gives us one more shooter, and a good scorer under the basket

    Hopefully getting Camby/Smith back for the opener will help us a ton

    I would start

    Chandler
    Anthony
    White
    Brewer
    Felton

    We seen Joe Johnson abuse Kidd in the post, so I wont start Kidd and wouldn't even play him at the 2 unless they went with Williams and Watson in the back court.

    White and Brewer give us 2 perimeter defenders to start the game off with barring any switches on D one will always be on Johnson which slows him down

    Kidd
    Smith
    Novak
    Camby

    These 4 would be the main guys off the bench. Kidd will run offense effectively. Smith and Novak will be the offensive punch to compliment Brewer and White. Camby will spell Tyson.

    Prigioni
    Copeland
    Thomas

    They will just be the main reserves. Thomas will play to add some more toughness inside, give us some fouls. As good as Prigioni and Copeland were they did it against 3rd stringers most of the time so I'm not sure Woody will play Prigs over Felton/Kidd/Smith and Brewer and White are better defenders than him. Copeland wont play over any of our front court guys

    I think we have to start JR or else our starting lineup won't be able to score and Melo will have to try to do too much an probably be double teamed.

    I would start

    Felton
    JR
    Brewer
    Melo
    Chandler

    and off the bench

    Pablo
    Kidd
    Novak
    Copeland
    Camby

    Cant run NBA teams like that.

    Pablo/Kidd/Novak/Copeland would get abused defensively.

    I'd go

    Felton/Brewer/Anthony/Thomas/Chandler

    7 left

    Felton/Smith/Brewer/Anthony/Chandler

    4 left

    Felton/Kidd/Smith/Anthony/Camby

    2 left

    Kidd/Smith/Novak/Anthony/Camby

    Start 2nd

    Kidd/Smith/Novak/Thomas/Camby

    9 left

    Kidd/Smith/Brewer/Thomas/Camby

    6 left

    Kidd/Smith/Brewer/Anthony/Chandler

    4 left

    Felton/Smith/Brewer/Anthony/Chandler

    End Half

    After watching how things are looking. Whether we need more O or more D. We play it like that. Now barring foul trouble who knows but this is how I would run it for the 1st half definitely

    Once we go to the bench, we could do some mixing and matching but I think we should definitely start with that five. They'll be playing against 2nd units so I don't see why they would get abused. Pablo is a solid defender and Kidd is still very good and with Camby protecting the paint I think they'll be fine.

    The BK second unit is an unknown at this point and Johnson has already said D-Will or JJ will be in at all times, so we should separate Melo and JR to keep a scorer in at all times since STAT is out

    Especially with us playing Miami the next night we can't have Melo logging too much wear and tear its gonna be difficult for us

    Ya I agree that one of them should be in at all times but I think they should start and end the game together, then take turns resting.

    That could work too

    at the 6 minute mark sub out JR put in Kidd/White/Novak whoever then at the start of the 2nd put JR back in and then Melo comes in at 6/7 minutes left and they finish the half.

    I think I'll keep my opinions in secret for the GT, but I like what you guys have said for sure. If we get enough good posts before the GT goes up, I'll add them to the thread itself.

    Yeah, I was thinking, if possible, that I'd ask Rady to send out a message to literally every single registered user as a notification that 12-13 is under way at KO. I dunno!?

    What do you make of that? You're a major contributor, and the thoughts of those like yourself and NYk_Reloaded718 etc are always going to be listened to. Any backing I can get for the idea will be greatly appreciated as well.

    I'm down for a stellar year at KO now that we have major contributors, as well as an influx of European posters (I say influx, I mean like 5 )

    Do you have a twitter account? I wouldn't ever use one, that's for sure. If anyone does have a twitter account, please make use of it for the site.

    yeah I use it to get consistent updates on sports mostly. I could make one for the site and interact with a lot of the other Knicks based twitter feeds and basically promote the site for people all over if you guys want me to
