    Default What is up with T. Thomas

    Yesterday at the garden really struck a nerve with me. Tim Thomas is not living up to the role he should be filling. In the last three games 2 losses 1 win, Tim Thomas has had weak friggin numbers, period. The fans at the garden started chanting "Keith Vanhorn" repeatedly, and I can't blame em. He needs to step it up soon, especially on this road trip comming up. Otherwise it looks like the Knicks made a bad trade, Nazr has been sucking too by the way.

    i remember van horns first games weren't that good either
    but if we look back a little bit, when starks was traded for spree, latrell wasn't accepted so quickly, but he becamed in a short while the fan favorite, espacially after ewing left, then things weren't easier for KVH too, and you heard how the crowd was chanting for him last night

    i bet the same thing will happen with tthomas also, we just need to give him some time to adapt oneself

    I hope your right man. It's true KVH had a hard time for his first couple of weeks in NY, and maybe I'm being a little haste in my comment. It just looked like T. Thomas wasn't making an effort. Marbury started out crappy, but he kept on trying to make shots and better passes, by the end of the game, he was on fire, no one else was. My point is that Thomas needs to keep on trying, by the end of the game he looked out of gas. The Knicks really need to sign Baker before the end of this week. I've read several articles that say he is most interested in the Knicks. Most of these same papers said Wallace would be a Knick before the deadline as well. Overall I think we really need him. Kurt is the only reliable big man we have, the man needs some help.

    A lot has been said of TT's athleticism. I watched the last couple of games but I haven't seen it yet. He has a great body but moves slow and is not aggressive when posting up. Just watch penny and anderson and compare their intensity with TT's during that last game, big difference. TT never even looked interested when fighting for post position when plays were ran for him. I'm still open for him to step up since it HAS only been three games but he better show us something if he wants fan support.

    TT is not a smart ballplayer and he is a slacker. You all will accept it with thime. It was such a stupid trade.

    If TT really is a slacker, I think he'll learn soon enough that NY won't put up with his half a**ed attempt to play ball. The fans will continue to let him know if they don't like what he's doing and Isiah has proven that he can get rid of undesirable players/contracts.

    I'm gonna give him so time to see what he can do and if he is able to step up to play in NY.

    Obviously he'll say its a dream come true, otherwise Knicks fans would kill him. What's he supposed to say? "I really don't want to be here. "? Its obvious that he'll say that. Dont be stupid, think of what would happen if he said something different.

    tim thomas should be putting up decent numbers in 2-3 games once he gets comfprtable.. if not then id say it was a bad trade, maybe they could have waited until offseason to make the trade..

    I think Isiah felt that TT and Mohammed were pieces that the Knicks needed to make a playoff run.

    Tim is happy to be playing in NY and once he becomes comfortable and learn the plays, I think that he will be very productive. Him and Steph are close and Steph will get on his a** if he's not giving it 100%

    The Knicks lost again tonight, which sucks, but at least Nazr and Tim picked up their games, thats a positive sign.

    ok, tthomas is starting to showing us something, that's good (maybe because the kvh chants were missing?), nazr also had a nice game, we should have won this game, i'm really starting to wonder if we can still make the playoffs this year. it's the 3rd straight loss, and houston must comeback

    I dont think that Houston needs to rush back. The Knicks should have won that game last night but they let up in the 4th quarter. Stephon needs to trust his teammates and not try to win the game by himself.
