    I wouldn't say that Lee is amazing. No doubt he is perfect at what he does which is giving the team a lift off the bench and hustling and doing the work which most people avoid, but he isn't an amazing player yet. His defense could use some work. Just because he is a rebound machine doesn't mean he is a good defender. However, in a couple of years Lee will be one of the top hustle players in the entire league. If he can develop a good jumpshot he'd easily be the Knicks most valuable player on their current roster.

    WOW! out of all the writing I wrote on David Lee, Metrocard, said it best in just a few lines:

    With energy "Taz" Balkman injured and out it is best that David Lee come off the bench alongside Nate & Collins (I would rather see Rookie SF-Chandler or Malik alongside of Nate, Collins, and Lee, rather than SF-Jefferies and Fred Jones in the 2nd unit.).

    Lee is also very capable of developing a post game. I saw a lot of flashes in the 06-07 season. Lee is a strong quick agile man who can work around the painted area. Lee shoots 80% from the FT also, and has the ability to shoot the 15 jumper(Kurt Thomas), give it time.

    Lee and Balkman are the two most important players on this roster, and they were late round 1st rounders...who were not even projected to go in the first round because they weren't "talented" enough, undersized rebounders/etc just athletes. They're value is high because of how much they bring to the table, taking leadership on the court, command and complete control of the tempo, dominating the boards, playing defense, making passes, setting screens...etc. These guys do it all. If we play them under 30 minutes a game, expect another losing season.

    Anyone recall ex-Knick Xavier McDaniels (X-Man), he too agree with my logic of having David Lee & Balkman on this Knick Team.

    Hey Alan, love the insight man. 2 part question for ya regarding the starting rotation and the bench.
    The knicks have developed quite the tendency of falling behind to start games and then relying on the energy of the second unit to play catch-up the whole game. Wouldn't it make sense to start either Balkman or Lee in the frontcourt and have the other one off the bench (rather both coming off the bench and duplicating a lot of the same skills)? And maybe even Jones or Mardy at the 2 to start to play some D and set the tone, with Crawford off the bench to provide firepower? i realize that egos and salary are a factor here but i don't think they should be. We need to add some defense, hustle and intensity to the starting unit and that's not coming from Steph, Q, Craw, Zach or Curry...
    Also, I think that it is going to be obvious as the year progresses that the knicks best 2 players are both power forwards, Zach and DLee. What do you think Isiah will do to get them both the minutes they deserve? I don't know about DLee at the 3, we want him near the basket. Do you see either of them at the 5 when curry is out to run with the second unit? I predict that it becomes an issue over the year and trade rumors begin to swirl. I just hope its not Lee who goes.

    A: I loved X-Man as a Knick. Remember his tirade against Phil Jackson? Awesome.
    I donít see any changes in the starting lineup as of now. I do think you are lacking some energy in that group and, early on, Quentin Richardson has looked a little slow. Could be a residual of the back surgery and maybe some weight he gained as a result. Iíd like to see David Lee there, perhaps, and go with Q off the bench for some outside pop and defense. But thatís the extent I would consider. That second unit is good as an energy unit to come in and change momentum.
    I think you can move Zach to the five and have D-Lee play the four sometimes when Eddy comes out. Those three are the regulars among the frontcourt. Balkman can play 2-3-4 and Jared Jeffries can play 3-4-5.
