    Ellis can't play d like Lee can, and you can't compare a guard and a pf..
    Frye was a good pick, great player, we should've kept him
    Lee, best pick we have ever made.. he was picked at 30

    I'm not sayin all man-to-man d.. To me d is more rebounding blocking, and 99% effort, who cares if he can't move, its all about the effort on d

    He's a smart player, he has heart. He doesn't have the physical tools to dominate. To me he'll never be more than a hustle guy that gives you 13-10. Trading him for a 5th pick is a steal in my opinion

    David Lee is a very good player, and he deserves to win 6th man of the year one of these days, in my opinion. However, David Lee does not play defense. I've seen him get layed up on and dunked on plenty of times. Lee is a good help defender, but he has no shot blocking, no man to man defense, and he has bad transition defense, due to his lack of quickness. Lee also is inconsistent on his jump shot, and he still needs improvement on that area.

    I voted for Michael Sweetney, but I have respect for him. In the 2004-2005 season, the Knicks didn't have a center, but he still played hard and tried his best to play defense and play well in the low post. Michael Sweetney is definitely not soft. I only voted for him, because there was so many players that was better than him in that draft that it's not even funny. Also, his conditioning was poor, and it hurt his ability to be productive offensively. Michael Sweetney is still > Eddy Curry, in my book, though.
