i expect our front court to dominate the younger unexperienced combo of brown and mihm. im sure marbury can take parker to school and richardson and kobe matching up should be interesting to watch. the only thing im worried about is barnes guarding odom. odom has about 3 inches on him and can shoot from downtown as well as in the post. i think the key to winning though is down in the paint with all our big men so i think it would be smart to activate james for this one.
im not crazy about either ariza or barnes on odom. id really love to see lee on him but i dunno if larry would do that. this seems crazy but id rather have ariza guarding kobe and bring q in when kobes out or odom is out to hit some 3s. i dont think q or craw can really cover kobe well at all.
The key to the knicks winning tonight is not shutting down Kobe. Kobe will score his 20-30 points, rather the key is to shut down everyone else. We should let Kobe try to beat us all by himself. We should shut down everyone else so that Kobe doesn't get any help, especially from Odom.
I getting tired of this **** and Larry trying to turn Marbury into Eric Snow!!!
WTF - Stephon can score - the knicks have trouble scoring
Let the man free - Look at Kobe
He was free to do what he wanted out there - shot poorly but ended up with 42pts...
If marbury plays the game he did last season with the D he plays now, together with the total knicks defense - the knicks would be winning many more games....
