Im almost thinkin that we didnt need jeffries. I like him and i think hes a good player but isiah probably wasnt expecting q rich to make the come back he has this year with offense and very solid defense and he wasnt expecting lee to be the solid player he has become. Well, ****! now were stuck with him for what, 5 years? Its kind of like what happend with jerome james before we got curry. Hopefully isiah can find 30 minutes a game for Lee and they can add to the win streak. The bobcats are a better team then their record shows but i think the knicks are to so it should be a good game as the bobcats seem to put up a fight every time they play. We gotta root for chicago 2nite against new jerz which would tie us up with them but Toronto is tough especially with bosh back now. Its gonna be a close race in the Atlantic with the celtics still in the picture once they get pierce back.
Even though Q is being what weve all wanted him to be he is not our ideal SF. plain and simple. a lineup that has 6'11 in three spots is where we want to begin. Once we rid ourselves of Steve Francis and decide what we are gonna do with Nate you will see our rotation have
Curry/Frye/Lee for the C/PF
Jeffries/Balkmn at the SF
and Q/JC/Steph at the guards positions.
Q is what we want at SG not at SF. and Jeffries (even if he just puts his hands up at the SF is better than a 6'6 Q doing the same.
now onto this game, we have won 5 straight at the garden and this should continue the streak. but charlotte is a surprsiingly crafty team so it should be tough. root for us, root against new jersey! well be 4 games within 500!
I dont know man q rich had some very imressive defensive performances against 2 of the best sf's in the league, pierce and king james. Jeffries is a better defender? I dont know about that he hasnt proved it to me yet. He gets a lot of deflections but q rich is could be one of the better 1 on 1 defenders in the league at his position. height does not always matter cuz if it did nate robinson wouldnt be in the NBA so i dont think just having a 6'11" jeffries at sf is an advantage over a 6'6" Q rich.
Q's back is unreliable, you never know when its going to go out. Jefferies wrist isn't 100%. So having Q at the swing position is great. Until these guys have at least another year together it will be hard to make a definitive assesment simply because of injuries.
