I don't think Knicks win a championship with the current roster they have, they're one move away from solidifying their chance to be the elite squad; I really hope I'm wrong on this.
What I'm looking for is someone who can shoot the three and defend. I wish Steve Novak and Ronnie Brewer had a baby. Sigh.
Grunwald should try to see if he can make a 3 team trade with Utah. They're most likely gonna trade Milsap by the trade deadline. I think he would put us over the top. The hard part would be trying to find a 3rd team that would be wiling to take Amare. I know this would probably never happen but maybe we can rip someone off for once.
you guys need to relax man we've still yet to see this team
we got 3 key players out with injury, STAT is rusty, Brewer is slumpin, Camby just finding his rhythm, Tyson playing inconsistent and Carmelo dealing with nagging injuries
once again, panic mode sets in after a loss that Knicks surely could have won. someone blame Felton!
as a Red one pointed out recently, perimeter and interior D, along with rebounding are key components Knicks must strive to get better at. consecutive losses due to other team grabbing huge lead due to lack of perimeter D and dropping of 3's, or lack of interior D leading to in-the-paint scoring.
Hickson going wild, Batum hitting killer 3's, LaMarcus scoring/bounding at wll, Lilliard doing everything right. other than Melo and JR, who had it going on for NYK?
Brewer? Cope? Camby?
Novak, again invisible with 1 rebound in 20 minutes? suck!
1st game back for STAT, his contribution in 3Q gave a glimpse of what we can expect as he gets his rhythm and loses the rust. when Shump comes back NYK will get even better.
for now, Wood Son needs to concentrate on defense and stop teams from building up leads.
it doesn't make sense to waste your time with ridiculous fantasy trades, and what-if, could've should've BS. it's fine to blow up your fantasy team, but this is the real world with a thin team finally getting some of their best players back, slowly but surely... have faith. as long as Knicks stay in the hunt, and get healthy, good things are bound to happen. losses happen, sh*it happens.
where's the Felton haters now? Kidd and Prig aint' gettin it done. seems we need Ray's game to pound it into the paint, and even if he's missing, get Chandler the put backs he hasn't had in the last couple losses.
whatever, Knicks were outhustled again. STAT's back and that's that.
Only Melo and Jr was playing how do u want to win game using only 2 scorers others was inivisble.
This site is like a drug addict, when the stress increases resort to your drug of choice. In our case after each loss we start fantasy trading to ease our stress. It's sad, lets accept the loss and move on. Our defense is down right disgusting! How come it seems every game a marginal player has a career night on us, always. It's not offense that's the problem but the only person to ball for us is melo and jr. I'm still cool without Felton because he wouldn't have made us better defensively last night. Yea he would have hit a few shots but he can be inept on D so he wouldn't have helped last night. And besides how many shots would he have taken and possessions wasted to get 12 points

Last night just shows that Amar'e gets a bad rap sometimes. Novak-Kidd-Priggs score a combined 2 points with 6 assists, and were like 0-10 from 3. Pathetic. Knicks lose b/c of that offensive production, or lack of, but the bashers will point out that the Melo-Amar'e duo lost yet again.
Knicks need Shumpert back. He'll help with the defense. BUt NY needs to gigure something out while Felton is gone. Kidd is not a full-time PG anymore. Priggs isn't a backup PG. AT best, the 3rd stronger. NY might need to go out and do something to find a PG soon.
