Its only one game...you mofos are already crucifying Marbury. This man, Lee, and Balkman were the primary reason we got close to winning 30 games last season.
Since when Nate > Marbury? Lets be serious here.
Now why Crawford? He actually knows how to pass and get guys open something that Marbury has a hard time doing. Did you guys see the way Marbury was arguing and yellin at Nate. Thats messed up. Because Nate took a three and made it in. That was the reason Marbury yelled.
You hit it right on the head why "Nate & Collins" is not allowed to have consecutive good games on a consistent basis on this Knick-Team with Marbury & Crawford in the lineup and rotation.
Marbury & Crawford are good veterans on a team inwhich has a dominate leader like Kobe, Lebron, Pierce, or Duncan, whom would have the coach sit Marbury or Crawford on the bench for down playing any teammate.
Not even Ewing could of helped us last night!! Lebron took his 10 point outing as a slap in his own face!! He took his aggression out on us!! In HIS house!!
We played very well in a whole if you ask me!!
Marbury to me looked a little over aggressive but all in all he looked in shape and he looked very hungry!! It might not be his team but if he plays well this year we go far!! He needs to find his role and hit his easy layups!! Wow how easily he was getting to the hoop!!! Just missing though!!
Crawford to me looks like another John Starks!! A hustle Player with Play Ground like offensive game!! He just keeps hitting shots no matter how bad some of them look!! He gets hot watch out!!
Curry still gets absolutely no love from the refs!!! Too many times in the forth he was butchered and not one call!! He cant hit free throws anyway but at least give him a Shaq like chance!! Call the fouls!!
Poor Balkman...... What was that did someone tell Lebron that Balkman said he could cover him!! Lebron went after him so hard!! He got what 4 fouls in a minute? First game of his season cant wait till the next time we see Cleveland think he will have a much better game!! Balkman will be our biggest shock player this year!! Give Isiah mad props on his Drafts!!
We will win the next game!!!
I almost forgot!!!
WOW WOW WOW!!!!
I knew he can get #s but I dont watch Portland so I had very little to go by!!
He can play huh?? Larry Johnson like if you ask me!!!
I think what I liked most is he can play D!! He hustles!! He can board better then Curry!! Knows where the ball is going !! Very hi basketball IQ!!!
And he can put it in the hoop!! Another great Isiah move!!
We get rid of Steve Francis's contract and Frye who reminded me too much of Charles I cant hit a layup Smith!!
Larry Mr sabotage Brown must be thinking how did he do that!! He thought Steve would be impossible to move!!
All in all we got got a better team cause of the move and I'm excited to see his second game as a KNICK!!
zach randolph played great last night but why he passes like a lil b*tch, he always floats his passes
Zach Randolph, I knew he was a good player but I'm really impressed with him. He has alot of different post up moves and a nice mid range J to go along with it. His defense is better than I thought it was also. He did have 4 turnovers but it was his first real game as a knick.
Nate Robinson brought a lot of energy off the bench. He had 19 points and 6 rebounds in his 27 minutes of play, and only one turnover. Crawford also had a good game. I felt his defense was inconsistent, he looked good at times and other times he needed to put more effort into it. Good game overall for him. He shot well and he did a good job passing the ball.
Oh, by the way, the defense is lovely? Get off that crack, giving up 110 points is not lovely. The knicks let cleveland beat them the same way they beat Detroit: Lebron and Boobie. It was sad watching boobie hit all those open 3's, it shouldnt had happened. Somehow, according to 1 and lonely, the Knicks played good or lovely defense.
i have no problem with lebron torching us. i mean i do but balkman isnt 100% and i think q gave a pretty good effort. as long as hes taking it to the hoop theres no real way to stop him because hes gonna keep getting his calls and his FT attempts as well as outside shooting are what killed us. we have to learn that we cant double team a guard on someone like lebron or a big man because theyre gonna just kick it out for a wide open 3. we have to stay with our men on defense (particularly perimeter) and just force them to take contested shots (probably jumpers). to all the haters who were arguing that randolph and curry cant coexist on offense - other than curry forcing some bad shots on double teams and not passing well out of double teams (both of which are not new and the same problems he had last year), randolph's nice outside touch and willingness to let curry bang down low look like an incredibly lethal pf/c combination. when curry is out of the game, i think i would like to see randolph moved to c because he is more athletic and can draw the other team's c out of the paint, freeing up the inside for penetration, back door passes and putbacks by Lee or our smaller guys. the problem obviously still remains on the defensive end but i dont think randolph played a horrible defensive game. hes average, and if curry can improve his d to average i think well be OK down low as long as our perimter guys stay with their men.
