Rumor has it on the ESPN message board that Mardy Collins just went under surgery 6 weeks ago and may not attend the Summer League games.
It's the first of me hearing of this, because I'm set and prepared already on taping Collins & Balkman (with a Tri-Chem Nate) setting the tone for the Knicks Summer league Team vs All the young Future talent of the NBA.
Mardy Collins showed at the ending of the Knick season that he can LEAD this team from the PG position better without Marbury distractions in the lineup with him.
His performance was so well played that it bothers me why the Knicks are not searching specifically for a guard that can fit in the backcourt with him this offseason. Although, I have not seen or heard about all the players the Knicks invited to their Summer League team (only rumors).
On the down side of the Knicks, Isiah Thomas Star Center Eddy Curry dont look so good with Isiah searching hard this offseason for a Star-PF and a Star-SF to put with Eddy Curry in the Starting Lineup. This says something?
I'm not bashing any Knick Players (I used to be a Knick season ticket owner untill two years of Isiah Thomas) however, if Portland dont cut Francis and put him into the lineup with Rookie of the year Roy, and Channing Frye & Greg Oden gets off to a great start with Francis and Roy backing them up well this should send a message to every Knick-Fan about Isiah Thomas favoritism and "Save-Face" Coaching style (33 WIN Season!)...
P.S. I am still Puzzled why President Isiah Thomas REFUSED the Great "Walt Clyde Frazier" when he offered his services this offseason to work with and train the talents of Mardy Collins?
