Happy Thanks Giving Everyone! enjoy friends and Family on this Giving-Day.
The Knicks played 11 games so far this season, they gathered 9 loses with 8 straight-loses giving the Knicks a 2-9 start this 2007-8 regular season.
I guess we are the TURKEY of the NBA.
How long will it take this Knick Team to become a .500 Team with a 2-9 start?
Thanks Giving Eve the Knicks lost the game to the Detroit Pistons in the first quarter 36-23 (Poor Start!).

They made the starters seem like they weren't really trying for they were getting results from the hustle
The Knicks lost this game in the First-Quarter (36-23) and Third-Quarter (23-16). The Knicks 5-Starters are unsure of their ROLE on this team. They are not equipped with a first-half role & second-half role, both playbook roles are the same poor one on one halfcourt offense with little or no defense.
The Detroit Pistons 5-Starters are in the Top-5 co-existing Starters in the NBA.

Zach Randolph should have not been a Starter on any of the early regular season games for the Knicks this season. Preseason yes, Zach Randolph chemistry with Curry & Marbury has been to poor for him to be put in the Starting-Lineup alongside of them (The three Players should have put in some heavy workouts together before Training-Camp started this offseason for Zach to be a Knick-Starter.).
The Knicks 2nd-Unit needed a consistent scorer inwhich PF-Zach Randolph would have been the missing scoring piece to the 2nd unit, with hustling rebounding PF-David Lee being put in the Starting Lineup covering for Curry on the glass (the two do co-exist).
Both David Lee & Zach Randolph should have been averaging at least 32 MPG since the start of the regular season with PF-Lee as a Starter and PF-Zach as the 6th-Man off the bench. If things would've worked out well by Midseason Zach could've made his presence as a Knick Starter.

lovely pass Nate to Lee. </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
The Nate, Balkman, and Lee lineup should've been the 4th-Quarter Starters every game this season, because of the TRI-Chemistry they created together as energy players that has learned to adapt to differ oponents (Plus they are the best come from behind lineup on this Knick Team with the addition of a scorer player added with them.). Depending on the Knick-Oposition and how well they played in the first three quarters this Knick roster have a great option of players to select the next two offensive-players to go alongside of the "Tri-Chemistry-Hustlers" to start the 4th Quarter from Marbury, Crawford, Q.Rich, Zach, Curry, or some defensive prowness from Collins, Malik, Jones, and ready for playingtime Rookie Chandler & Morris. It's not much but it is a 2nd half "PLAN" that could've been utilized with consistency.
The Knicks-Rotation of Players in the 2007-8 Regular Season has been a very poor selection of lineups and substitutions that has not implimented a team-defense on oponents, especially if you watched the Knicks Last-Season they had a couple of co-existing Knick lineups that did play decent at both ends of the court together inwhich should have been built on before this season to have a better defensive/offensive lineup that will keep this team close in each game.
The Knicks have been playing LOST-BALL this entire season and has become the Number-One (#1) worst NBA team in the League...
