first off did any of you look @ the schedule for november. its not gonna be an easy month thats for dam sure. give it a lil time and the team chemistry will be @ 100%. were playing without jared jeffries. when he comes back he will give us that solid d against some bigger guys which we so desperatly need. i really think isiah needs to make just one change in the starting 5. PUT DAVID LEE IN FROM THE OPENING TIP. we need him on the boards from the start. then we still have nate and balkman coming off the bench to energize the team.
i agree marbury definatly hasn't played to his potential. but last nite against the wizards i noticed the difference. he was moving without the ball. getting himself in the game and keeping the guy guarding him on their toes. he needs to continue to do that and realize that moving without the ball will open up the lane and open up jumpshots 4 him.
and to all of you who have said he isnt a winner, take a look @ his teams. he's been on 4 teams. 3 of them he's made the playoffs on. better yet he LED the team to the post season on thoze 3 teams. there are plenty of great players who dont know what its like to see the 2nd round of the playoffs. up until a few years ago garnett didnt. t-mac doesnt. gilbert arenas dont. it doesnt mean that cant change. once he gets back to his 20pts and 8asts a game that will open up the offense for the rest of the team.
steve francis isnt playing that bad either. he's learning that he isnt the franchise of the team and cant be a one man show. hopefully he continues to get his team-mates involved.
but the bottom line is the season is very young and the knicks are in the hardest part of their schedule. i still have faith
