    Nyk Logo One month in to this season, what's been a stand out to you?

    For me, and there have been a few, the biggest standout is Sheed's defence, and the way it seems that his hiatus did nothing but do him wonders.

    Other than that, Ronnie Brewer's output for $850K this season has to be close to the NBA's best overhead contract.

    2 from me with more to come. How about you?

    To me its got to be Melo's MVP campaign. I haven't seen a Knick dominate like that since Ewing and not even that matches what Melo's been doing also. Also, I'll be the first one willing to eat crow on Sheed. I thought his signing was nothing more than comedic value, but he's really been a favorite.

    Not really that suprised, I would be more suprised if the knicks were stinking it up. I saw a bit of the future last season when Woody took over. And the signing of veteran players also had me feeling optimistic about this year. We just need to stay healthy going into the post season.

    I'm most surprised by the play of Prigioni. I always heard he was good but wasn't sure if his skills would translate to the NBA level.

    Special mention goes to the Camby mystery and the 3pt accuracy of Brewer.

    To me it's the whole team playing TEAM Ball at both ends of the floor. Having said that, I think nearly all the vet signings have exceeded expectations, besides mayb Camby, but especially Kidd, Prigioni, Sheed, and Brewer.

    Knicks 3pt shooting. I knew that D was gonna be the point of emphasis this season with Woddy at the helm, but he has emphasized ball movement as well. Been leading to a lot of open 3's for the team.

    Jason Kidd, when he plays we're going to win most of our games. I want him closing every game for the rest of the year.

    Not to be a bad spot, but it's our defense, or lack there of. Seems in some of the 'easier' games we just decide to outscore out opponent (narrowly).

    We have shown we can play hard D with the best of them but I would like to see a more consistent showing across the full season. Just seems like we cruise to give players rest and rely on our offense a bit much.

    compared to the last decade, it has been a great surprise for me

    Co-sign shooting was a suspected weakness during off season


    The TO's...or lack there of

    That's made the difference between us being 11-4 vs like a 9-6

    Then there is the rebounding (or lack there of)


    We have just 2 losses (I think Memphis and Houston simply outplayed us and nothing would have won those games for us) if we limit offensive boards


    We gotta hold teams to one shot better than we have

    -Lack of TOs
    -3 point accuracy
    -Jason Kidd's intelligence
    -Felton's overall play

    A lot of things have been a stand out for me, a lot of our players are playing better than we thought. Melo finally stepping up his defensive game, JR Smith looking like a legitimate contender for 6th man of the year, Prigioni has played better than I thought he would, Marcus Camby barely playing is still something I don't understand.

    MIKE WOODSON, the team is playing like it is because they love him. like when you were in school and there was a teacher you really liked, you didnt wanna let him or her down so you actually gave a crap and tried.

    all other opinions like melos mvp campaign, sheeds defense can boil down to a coach that these guys WANT to play for
