ok i watched the game 2nite and here's what i thought...
lee seems possesed. he is hustling around the court more than anyone out there. he has deft improved his rebounding and is playing a lot more physical. (we betta keep him)
balkman is on every loose ball and every rebound. he is at his best cutting thru the lane and dishing to the open man (just what we needed). his defense is great. he shut down kevin martin on a shot that coulda won the game for sacramento. he made a few rookie mistakes but he deft has potential. (we betta keep him)
collins also plays great d. he is another one who penetrates and finds his teammates. he doesnt need to shoot to make an impact which also fits him in perfect. he had some nice shots under the basket that scored him some nice and 1's. (keep him)
nate robinson: i love him but he needs to chill with the 3's. i saw him dribbling out the shot clock and chucking up a 3 too many times. i like the energy he brings but the knicks pulled themselves out from a 10+ deficit with him out of the game. he isnt the greatest passer. he's quick and is good @ catching the d off guard, not sure if he's gonna fit in that great with our guys.(tradable)
ime udoka sucks.
frye was injured which is starting to seem like a habit of his. and whats the main reason most of you guys dont wanna bring in k-mart? i say if it took frye in a deal to get him. go 4 it.
i think q-rich should NOT be traded! ive changed my mind. after seein the way balkman, collins, and lee like to distribute the ball i now c we need an outside threat to open up the paint. with these 2 rookies coming in it will deft help q get plenty more open shots.
now they have one of isiah thomas' practices w/ the summer league players on tv. im watchin him school the big men and from what i hear him preachin its obvious he knows what hes talkin about. i got a good feelin about this season.
we won by a point but the truth is ron artest disappeared @ half time. i think he hit up a titty bar on the strip. without artest our young guys showed what they're capable of. thats my take. anyone else see the game? whatchu think...
