is alan houstin playing tonight?
I doubt that Houston will be playing tonight because he hasen't had any practice with his NEW team and probibly dosen't know Zeke's plays well enough yet, but I wouldn't be suprised if he gets a few minuts anyway. Go Jewish All-Stars! (Just kidding LOL ) Can't wait to see some action!!! GO KNICKS!!!
i dont wanna see fred jones get cut for allan houston
Jones has got game. Did you see the three he hit? And Jordan has got some real passing skills. I wasn't all that impressed with Robinson. Can't wait til Curry gets back. Should be a real force.
It's clear this team has loads of talent. I hope Zeke can put it together so all the NY haters can shut up.
Sucks that whoever we cut other than James can be very useful for the team.
A few things that should have been noticed:
Nate Robinson performance and changing the tempo WON this game for the Knicks.
The Knicks were down by 12 points when Nate Robinson came into the game and turned the lead into the Knicks favor it just reminds me how many times has I watched this imature Player (Nate) do this in the last two seasons (way to many times). Nate was put on the court with Defensive Players Collins, Malik, Jones, and Jefferies as a second Unit.
The Knicks second Unit lead by Nate Robinson went on a tear in the second quarter scoring 33 points that quarter (Defense players scoring). You had to LUV the Nate & Collins tandem alongside of strong Malik Rose. That's right Malik Rose was another big contributor.
Zach Randolph was not able to do much in the first half of the game, he came alive in the second half when the Knicks was settled into one tempo (Nate's). Marbury & Crawford was slashing to the hoop on a regular in the second half putting the oposition into steady foul trouble so the frontcourt players (Zach, Lee, Q.Rich, Chandler, and Morris) could just play their game for the WIN.
Isiah Thomas belive 6.2 Fred Jones is a keeper as the Knicks SG. He is not given Demetris Nicholes a chance to shine equally with Fred Jones by playing Nicholes with Nate & Collins. Playing Nicholes with PG-Jordan at garbage time show the two are not keepers this season.
This game showed the Knick players that Isiah Thomas is not interested in, and the Knick-players that will be his keepers. Isiah have to cut players or trade players to get this roster down to 15-players before regular season.
And guess who Isiah wants to trade whom market value keep growing? that's right Nate Robinson with two other Knick-players. Isiah will be sorry when he trade Nate and cut Nicholes...
P.S. Marbury dived for a lose ball!!!<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
Did Thomas get booed?
From what I read, the Knicks were the "away" team given the atmosphere of the Garden.
Why is Isiah not even giving Nichols the chance to shine i hate this. Nichols showd that he is a force that needs to be recond wih i say give him some minutes with robinson so we can do the damn thing. im hearing kobe might be moving i hope he is trying to make nate look good so he can be packaged for kobe thats it. This kid jordan is pretty ok he has a nice lit handle. Whats up with Marbury hes not doing anything. Hes actually being out played by Nate seriously if he want to leave i think we should let him leave now cause hes really not doing anything for us
Why should Nichols go play in Europe if hes ready to contribute in the NBA? Only "Isiahsexuals" would not be irritated by this move. He looked real good in the summer league games and he deserves more of a chance now. 5 minutes doesnt give him enough time to work up a sweat.
Only Jerome James can work up a sweat that fast
who the hell does Nichols think he is demanding to play?
Zeke's right to punk him.
