    To be honest I think that Malik Rose needs more minutes. He might not bring that much scoring but he could bring some defense. The knicks are a bunch of young hot heads and we need a veteran leader on the floor who has expirience.

    Malik Rose is horrible. If he was really any good the spurs would've kept him. Tonight I saw him literally standing straight, holding the ball above his head until inevitably, Luis Scola (the kind of player whose offensive game D. Lee should have) took it out of his hands as if the ball was a book resting on a shelf. Please don't embarrass yourself or the rest of us Knick fans any further by suggesting Malik Rose get more minutes.

    Balkman, far and away needs to be given more minutes. He's a game changer that doesn't need the ball in his hands to have an impact.

    well the knicks haven't been playing good with all of these diffrent lineups and the night when Malik Rose starts we only lose by 3. I know we still lost but as a true knick fan I just wanna see my team compete

    A man who watches the Knicks ^


    Rose has been one of the worst players on the team for the last 2 seasons. His stereotype that he's a defender is really a bunch of a BS. He has no purpose out there in the court. Malik plays out of position and gets mismatched everytime he's on the court, he's not even a PF, his true position is RB; right bench.

    If a trade happens maybe something will change but until then I just don't see it. Let Balkman ****in play zeke damn. He is a Rodman type player. He'll get blocks rebounds steals a couple of hustle plays, he'll do something that not being done now. Q-Rich has shown he doesn't want to play or just forgot how to play. His defense isn't even as good as it use to be. Start Balkman at the 3 Lee at the 4 Curry at the 5 and see what happens. It can't get worse but sure nuff can get better because when these 2 are onthe court together, usually good things happen.

    Eddy Currys House Special is the best name on here

    All 4 of these options are necessities. In other words, I think Balkman Chandler, and MOrris should be gettin more minutes and I think that David Lee should be in the starting lineup.

    The one that I feel would have the biggest impact on this team would be inserting Lee into the starting lineup. It is obvious that Curry is being a bitch when Z-Bo is on the court. Randolph is right, Currys gotta play strong no matter whos on the court. He cant let Z-Bos selfishness effect his game. But I think it is clear at this point that the 2 of them in the same starting lineup will not work. Lee is a team player, he will make whoever the starting center is better. I think Curry should sit.

    It is frustrating watchin Balkman sit on that bench. He was a big player off the bench for us last year and showed he has the ability to change the game. Isiah should get the pliers to his nuts for not playin Balkman. Chandler and Morris should be playin too, why the F*ck should they not be playin? The season is over, with a record of 8-24 I dont wanna hear any playoff talk, its over.

    I also think mardy collins should get a chance.
    we saw glimpses of what hes capable of end of last season. Chandler, Balkman and Morris should get alot more mins. Id also like to see nate start alongside marbury. Crawford can sit down!!!
    Lee should also start with Randolph coming off the bench. I say this beacuse nate and lee have the chemistry to win games. Both like playing together and both never give up!
    Isiah does not see this though so until he does we are ****ed!!!!

    I think Wilson Chandler and Renaldo Balkman deserve more minutes. Quentin Richardson is out of shape, and he is struggling with his shot. He should get 4 months to rehab his elbow and lose 15 pounds.I also think Randolph Morris and Jerome James deserve more playing time at center. James is still recovering from his injury, but he can block shots way better than Curry. Randolph Morris is a rookie, so he'll play hard for the team, unlike Curry, who makes excuses for why he's struggling this year, rather than admitting it's his fault he's struggling.I at least can give Quentin Richardson credit for not pointing the finger for why he is having a bad year.

    I agree with you 100%. The Knicks look so bad, I couldn't even guarantee they could beat the Timberwolves, when they play them in Minnesota later this season.

    struggling doesn't even begin to describe it. q couldn't find his shot if someone gave him a road map to the basket.

    Someone might give you a tough time for sayin Jerome should get minutes but I think you spit nothin but the facts, man. At least he can come in for a couple minutes and block a shot. I would divide the minutes up at center like this:
    Curry=20 minutes
    Morris=13 minutes
    James=7 minutes
    Randolph=8 minutes out of position so Lee can get more minutes at PF

    Adds up to 48 minutes which it should cuz thats how many minutes are in a game, im just droppin some knowledge so the ones who dont know know. And Q-Rich is still out there givin it everything hes got but he doesnt have it any more. I keep sayin how he probally realizes this and is wonderin why Isiah is still givin him all these minutes and not playin Balkman. Most of the players on this team are probably smarter then Isiah.
