    I am impressed with the Knicks young Players in their first Summer League game.
    Nate Robinson & Renaldo Balkman set the tone like a real Captain and Leader does for their new teammates. We were able to see individual performances playing TEAM-BALL. That is something BIG and different from the last two regular season performances from this Knick Team.
    C-Randolph Morris showed up offensively & defensively in the paint (I still would put him in the PF position vs NBA teams with Lee at the Center and Balkman at the SF.
    SF-Chandler could not wait to show his raw Ron Artest performance on bothsides of the court, his peremeter shooting caught everyone eyes in the first game, lets see if he could keep it up throughout the rest of the Summer League games.
    SF-Nichols played great as Nate's right hand man in the backcourt and took advantage of every easy basket that was given to him to look like the invisible man on both sides of the court. You have to LUV his peremeter-defense.
    SG-Greene was having fun and laughing alot at how Nate Robinson was so affective throughout the game when he wanted to be. Greene could be the Knicks peremeter man on both sides of the court.
    Nate & Balkman get the MVP for this game in showing all of their teammates talents, not just on offense but defense too. They actually showed there teammates what is expected in the NBA. This was showed in the 2nd half of the game when Chandler & Nichols bumbed heads with Durant on offense and defense showing they are NBA ready too. Only if Marbury, Crawford, Jefferies, Zack, and Curry could be as good a "TEAM-PLAYER" as Nate & Balkman. But they cant!!!

    P.S. I still say that when Isiah Thomas seen Chandler performance in the Knicks workouts, and Chandler refused to go to any more team workouts after that, especially Philly workout who had 3 first round picks and is in need of a 6.8 SF like him.
    Once Isiah Thomas made the 23rd selection in the draft for 6.8 Chandler, his thoughts on Ron Artest being a Knick was over.
    Next Team China, this will be where we see which Knick Player in the Summer League Games has the best Peremeter Defense (Chandler, Nichols, Greene)?

    Knick-Fans you still want Nate Robinson traded dont you? reminds me of the Knick-Fans for Charlie Ward. Nate minor mistakes in a game never cost the team a lost, but Marbury & Crawford decision making cause a team to fall apart...
    I agree completely.

    Its only one SL though, but Chandler look really impressive. Same with Nichols.


    These two guys are very versitle and can play multiple positions. They're going to be excellent bench players for us.

    Balkman is just an animal. Like I said, Balkman is our best YOUNG player he brings something no one else on this roster('cept Lee) brings and thats high intensity agressive basketball on both sides.

    donchris, good post.

    We're going to ****ing CRUSH CHINA. Balkman is going to make Yi his personal ho.

    I was most impressed with Chandler. He has a good perimeter shot...Just imagine how consistent it should be in oct. So far it looks like another great draft 4 Mr. Isaiah Thomas

I like Nate but we've got way too many guards and I'd rather see Collins get his minutes.
    I agree. earlier last seaon, I used to cringe evertime Collins came on the court, but he presented himself much better after he started getting signifigant minutes late season.

    I too want to see Nate play well so he has good trade value, but lets face it, he looked pretty good last night, but he cannot drive a real NBA lane because hes too short and the rest of league has figured him out now, and he's just too easy to slap down when he does.

    Default one summer nate

    Nate looked great in SL, he's perfect guard off the bench to stir things up, and be an instant offensive threat/pest.

    Balkman rules. Chandler, Nichols and Morris played well enough to make the squad. Fred Jones' interview with Gus Johnson was interesting, he says he's a defensive specialist and is all about team. Looking forward to seeing his D and his hops.

    IT's gotta phone home and make a trade soon, to pare down the roster.
    As it is:

    Starbury - Collins - DanDick
    Crawford - Nate - Jones
    Q Rich - Balkman - Jeffries/Nichols
    Randolph - Lee - Chandler
    Curry - James - Morris

    OUT
    Cato
    Rose

    I say lose Jeffries over Nichols. The Syracuse product can shoot!

    word.

    umm Knicks should have trade Charlie Ward too. He stayed way too long as a Knick in my opinion. He would have a good few games here and there and the front office would forget about his other short comings. If the knicks can get quality for Nate then go for it. Collins should get his minutes

    Call it what you will, but the Knicks would have been better off looking for a point guard who could have actually made his teammates better instead of keeping charlie ward around all those years and lettin his azz get flipped by PJ Brown. He never averaged 6 assist any given year. he played good defense but so what the entire team p[layed good defense. He was an average player that played way to long in a Knick uniform

    Not to get too excited.... but Chandler looked good last night, the thing w/ summer league is you have to take almost everything w/ a grain a salt. The thing that you most watch for is player instincts, defense, and rebounding, because those are things that will not fade once the competition increases. I like the way Chandler played the passing lane, and made the outlet passes to Balkman. I mean the two of them looked like they have been playing together for four years last night, imagine if they grow together over the years. I like Nichols ability to come of screens and score as well as knocking down all the open shots he got, again these are the types of plays that show talent to me, not just the fact that shots were dropping but these are the type of shots he should be able to hit in the regular season too. Which brings me to Morris, not to say his rebounding wasn't impresses ( remember that was the knock on him, and odly enough David Lee when he came into the league)but he won't score those buckets on pro post players, I like the wide open shot he hit the Nate fed to him, but other than that I think he just looked a little better because of who he was matched against. Renaldo is still skinny but showed his hustle last year wasn't just about him trying to make the team, and looks like he's going to still be our energy guy.Nate was a little bit more controlled, but is still light years away from being a point, but I really think he can be smallest 2 guard in league history, he's a scoring machine, just not a playmaker. NIce to hear Q is feeling back to normal ( no pun), maybe we won't need Artest after all ? I'm now torn as to if we should keep Fred Jones or not, an athletic Defensive SG might need to be a keeper, think about it, like Q said last night we have 5 starters capable of giving 20 a game, but I think maybe we need a starter who can score but doesn't have to and brings some intagiables. Q, Steph, and Jones may not be Billups,Hamilton, and Prince, but it is a good enough perimeter D to prevent our weak interior D from being exploited every night. But then again who do we trade Jamal to and for who, we need to get rid of some of these players, and Nichols and Chandler look like keepers. I say first we cut Jerome James, look there is no putting lip stick on that pig, it was a horrible acquisition, and just even seeing him on the bench is a insult to the team. I was for cutting Malik until I heard he was joining the team in Vegas this week, plus he's our looker room leader, so now it's Dan Dick ( pause) that we need to cut in my opinion, Mardy is our backup, Nate plays with too much heart to let go, so DD is gone. Defensively our bench is solid, w Lee, Balkman, Mardy, and Jones, but we need another starter to bring that defensive tenacity.

    Tonight let's shut down Yi for disrespecting the game by not wanting to play for the franchise that greats such as Osacar Robinson, and Kareem made a name for themselves. I hope he gets dunked on, or better yet I hope Nate blocks him like he did Yao Ming
