    Nyk Logo One Day I can see David Lee

    Is this "PURE-FACT" or optimism?

    "One day I can see David Lee" averaging 32 MPG, 18 pts, 10 rbds, 3 ast, 1 stl, and alot of great WINNING hustle that is not recordeed on the stat-sheet.

    When we mention Player David Lee on this Knick Team it is not theory, optimism, or guessing, his performance is consistent and based on Pure-Facts. He can switch to all three Frontcourt positions (during any play) and play them well, his defense against Super-Star Players in the frontcourt position vs Center-Shaq, or PF-KG or Duncan, or SF-Pierce or Lebron maybe the same as the average defenders vs these Super-Star Players however, his offensive awareness in his passing-game, running-game, rebounding-game, and hustling for that lose-ball vs Frontcourt Super-Stars has made David Lee performance outstanding and the complimentary-player you want on the court at the "START and FINISH" of each game.
    David Lee has become a player you can depend on to do the things that the next player won't.
    And the next Player that is following in David Lee footsteps is 6.7 Renaldo Balkman as the Point-Foward who LUV to play trapping-defense in presuring the ball on oponents backcourt and frontcourt players bringing the ball up court. His outstanding performance switching positions as a SF rebouder and running the Point to beat the oponents Center & PF down the court on a fastbreak for a "3 on 1" or a "3 on 2" is another Pure-Fact that can be talked about.
    YEAH! that's right, David Lee two season performances has made me a David Lee Fan!!!

    Again...he plays poor defense at the 3. If you truly believe he can D up Lebron James (something T-Prince couldn't do) then you are crazy, insane, or just biased. Let's be a lil realistic here. I love David Lee too but his perimeter D is not up to par and he has slow feet for somebody at the 3. He is strictly a 4 right now, that could possibly change in the future

    Nyk Logo hopefully he will improve his weaknesses and maintain his strengths

    David lee can't stop lebron, but that doen't make hime a bad defender. Can any one player stop lebron? It took a whole san antonio team to stop him in the finals, and they didn't suceed every night either.
    So I hope lee, improves his offense to where he's got a good shot and still brings the high energy dunks and tip ins that has made him so exciting to watch.
    Defense, could still use work, but defense is a team effort, as the group improves. It makes individuals seem that much better on defense.
    Lets see if he can step it up.

    I think D.Lee could avg. 12-14 boards and 16 pts. a game but is a PF and should be left there the only time he should be guarding the SF or C would be in zone or help D. Lee will be a solid NBA pro with a few trips to the all-star games along the way. Maby not ever a bonafied super star but a player any coach or player would love to have on their team!

    i see lee averaging closer to 15 and 15 with 32 mpg... i also expect to start seeing him average at least 1 bpg... his athleticism and timing are there... as exidenced by offensive rebounding ability... he's gonna be a beast no doubt...

    yeah sure he can guard lebron about the same as an average defender, which as i think we all know is not very well at all. hes a 4, maybe can play some 5 in teh east depending on matchups (like rasho nesterovic or someone). depending on his playing time, but i think until he develops a stronger offensive game, if he gets 30 mins he would consistently put up about 15 pts, 10-12 rebounds, 2-3 assists, 1 steal and 1 block or so with like 1 turnover and countless hustle plays.

    We all should know that David Lee is a PF that has a wide all around game.
    The term He can switch position (during any play) means when Lee is forced to play at another frontcourt-position or player because his teammates been picked off or bumbed (during the play) he does as well as the average NBA player at C, PF, SF (He's an average defender).

    sorry...he's an average defender at the 4 and is proned to alot of rookie mistakes still such as defending the baseline because of his slow feet. Poor defender at the 3 and undersized for the 5. And his well rounded game...you must be talking about his rebound and hustle which not real well-rounded. No jumper, no perimeter D, non-existant post game...so where did you get the well-rounded from?

    yeah he still has work to do on a consistent jumper and inside scoring but i think with work he can become a solid complete player.

    David Lee as a starter = 17 and 13

    David Lee as a bench player = 12 and 10

    These are actually the only two options you have in Basketball. Zone or help defense. Every man-on-man defense that is no help defense is only poor basketball. A zone does not suit Lee since it cripples his rebounding. I guess he just has to work on D.

    Nyk Logo Lee is the best STARTER wid Marbury/Curry

    A Zone cripples the Knicks wid Curry in the lineup (he should've spent two years in college), get it right.

    With Curry & Marbury being the Prime Starters on this Knick Team the number-one co-existing player on this Knick Roster that should be Starting with Curry & Marbury is Mr. David Lee. Any wise common-sense NBA Coach knows this from watching this team.

    David Lee hustling talents are on both Defense and Offense, he is not a One on One player offensively or as a defender he is strictly a TEAM-PLAYER.

    David Lee is one of the fewest players that I seen in my many decades of watching the Knicks that does not let the New York crowds & Media atmosphere affect his consistent talents.

    There are very few PF in the NBA that you can put in the Starting Lineup with Marbury & Curry and expect to do a better job than PF-David Lee. Marbury & Curry has to many Flaws in their talent that David Lee performance covers for them. Hopefully the Knicks strategy this season is to get Rookie Randolph Morris into a Defensive minded performance at the Center and PF position at blocking-shots so he can get some meaningful playingtime with either offensive-players Curry or Zach.

    The Knicks have a Frontcourt Defensive unit in Rookie Randolph Morris, David Lee, and Renaldo Balkman, all three are ferocious rebounders and put-back specialist by playing above the rim ball. However, a certain Knick coach wont let Curry & Zach sit on the bench together to watch a hustling-defense that scores off of their defense.
