But with what you said Kiyaman, I wonder how long it will take Isiah to realize overloading individual talented NBA players won't bring success.
Being younger and more talented doesn't mean the team gets better. Theres much more to the NBA game than that.
When all is through with this ridiculous Court Case that is putting Isiah Thomas, Stephon Marbury, and James Dolan all on Front Street.
The Knicks have to get back to their Bread & Butter entertainment bussiness (NBA Basketball).
Will David Stern hit James Dolan with an outstanding Fine for the two consecutive offseason court cases involving Coach Larry Brown, and now President of Operation Isiah Thomas?
Will the Knicks take care of the two things that been holding them back from making the Post Season Games? to insure some peoples Jobs.
1) Having a 48 minute Offensive & Defensive Bigman on the court that can rebound.
There are 48 minutes in each game, and I do not believe that the Curry & Zach tandem will be used together exclusively.
Not to say anything bad about Eddy Curry adjustment last season but anything over 28 minutes slowed Curry down on both ends of the court in the regular season games. And the same could be said about Zach Randolph performance in Portland.
The Knicks only need one BIGMAN scoring threat on the court for 48 minutes per game. Having Curry & Zach gives this Knick Team a 48 minute Low-Post threat whether its Curry & Zach, or Curry & Lee, or Zach & Lee, or Zach & Balkman, or Lee & Balkman.
Jefferies is the only player that scares me the most in a Knick rotation because he is a big liability in rebounds & scoring a layup.
But the biggest thing that alot of B-Ball Fans and Sports Writers dont see happening anytime in Zach Randolph first season with the Knicks is the Chemistry on both ends of the court with Zach & Curry alongside each other the majority of the game, plus having PG-Marbury leading that show.
The Curry & Zach Tandem is Best for the 2008-9 season (not this season!).
2) Having a 48 minute Offensive & Defensive Backcourt Tandem that gets teammates involved in the game.
The Syracuse product 6.8 Demetris Nichols is automatically SG-Jamar Crawford backup.
If Isiah Thomas is to blind to see that than he deserves another losing season.
Demetris Nichols overall talent and skillz could be used at the SG-Position with the Knicks Starters if Crawford get into early foul trouble, and with the bench players alongside of Nate, Balkman, and David Lee as a threat on both ends of the court.
Just because Nichols is a rookie means nothing when your team is in dieing need for his type of talent and skillz in the rotation. It has nothing to do with Nichols being better than Chandler, Morris, or second season Collins. It is about forfilling a desperate need at the SG-Position that neither Crawford or Q.Richardson talents can forfill.
Out of all the new additions to the Knicks this offseason, Demetris Nichols talents and position is the most needed on this Knick Team to forfill its biggest weakness in the rotation (area).
IF??? eww. Bruce Bowen is Bruce Bowen because of his experience. There is no 19 year old Bruce Bowen, 19 year olds don't play all NBA defense. Once again, "if" is proven to be weak.
Lebron isn't ONE THING, theres other factors to why he's a top 3 NBA player. Talent and potential are just words. Experience, performance and work have much value in determining how much a player will contribute to a team.
lol, Kiyaman said skillz.
