This is a good article. Long as hell, but good.
That is an undeniably potent offensive unit. Curry - utilizing a rare combination of size, strength, and agility - is developing into a dominant force in the paint. Last season, Curry started to fulfill the promise that had been evident for a long time. However, he eventually began to wear down under the weight of constant double-teams. In 2007-2008 that shouldn’t be as much of a problem because he will now be joined on the front-line by an immensely gifted scorer in Randolph. Randolph comes over from Portland fresh off a season in which he averaged a remarkable 23.7 points and 10.1 rebounds. With Curry and Randolph posting and toasting on either side of the key, look for the Knicks to dump the ball down low early and often.
The writer took the time to point out every strength and weakness and never exaggerated any point over another. Defense is a concern and Lee and Balkmans minutes are as well. My take on it we have many options and good problems. Players will have to share minutes and I'm sure the players that play the best will get the most minutes. I expect to have a healthy Richardson, Lee and Balkman. If we do and Crawford slips he will be benched in the place of Richardson, which in tern allows Balkman to get more minutes. I'm optimistic as I usually am at the beginning of each season but cautiously optimistic. I say this is the play off year and if it falls apart then we talk upper management changes.
