This is Isiah Thomas Team with Isiah Thomas methods.
Let me clear this up for you, Balkman being BENCHED for over 33 games this season for ONE BIGG reason: "SAVING-FACE"
Q.Richardson is earning $8.1 Million this season, and Jared Jefferies is earning $5.6 Million this season.
Compared to SF-Balkman's $1 million and SF-Wilson Chandler $1 million.
So when you make small change like $1 million dollars a season you dont come in with an $8 or $5 Million a season player attitude complaining about what's up with my playingtime over those BUMS to Save-Face Isiah Thomas.
David Lee dont even make a FULL $1 million dollars this season.... lucky he became a FAN-FAVORITE, because he is the best complimentary player to each of his Knick Teammates.
As for teams learning his moves is a joke, he is ambidextrous that plays off the ball. With Curry he have to play the defensive paint, with Zach he have to play the offensive paint.
Nate Robinson had to learn the hard way on Isiah Thomas Team.
Nate makes $1 million a season, yet if your NBA Game is not up to par Nate Robinson will call it as he sees it, since his rookie Preseason when he called Jerome James a BIGMAN-BUM has been the only thing that changed in Nate Robinson Talent and Skillz is his mouth to under-achieve players.
Nate Robinson Rookie season deserved just as much playingtime as Chris Paul, Felton, and Deron Williams whom all had 60% more playingtime than Nate Robinson in his Rookie year. And 70% more playingtime than Nate his second season. Why?
Marbury earned $17 Million, Francis earned $15 Million, and Crawford earned $7 Million.
But it was always Nate Robinson whom lead the charge when the Knicks were behind by 25, 15, or 12 points to come within 5 to 2 points.
This made Marbury, Francis, Crawford, and Q.Richardson look real bad so they put an "Immature" logo on Nate to bench him all of lastseason and 30 games this season.
This Knick Team need to play team players that co-exist together which happen to be the majority of all of their $1 million per year contract players whom will apply hard energy effort for a BIGGER payday when their contract expire for WINS not stats.
