    I told you guys Duhon was a nice guard during the off-season and I was accused of being a Bulls fan in disguise by you know who. Now that Jamal is gone look for Duhon to step up his scoring to fill in the gaps. The Starbury crew is just hating the fact that the Knicks have moved on without thier boy. Just like that jealous ex-girlfriend that tell your new girl a bunch crap about you just to salt your game. The fact is Duhon never was the first option in Chicago and was buried on the bench behind Captain Kirk and Air Gordon. He was benched at the end of the season for skipping practice to attend the Duke-NC game. When the Bulls finally let Duhon off the bench, he dropped 35 on the Celts. Duhon was a great addition for the Knicks and it great to finally have a floor general again that will do what's good for the TEAM.

    11 and 8 in an offense like this is really mediocre, especially since his defense hasn't been good as advertise.

    Marbury > Duhon.

    LOL.

    Duhon has cleary more than lived up to the Knicks highest hopes and seems to be improving as he gets to the know the system and players better.

    Right now, he's the most valuable player on the team. He brings everything to the team that we needed. He plays hard, puts the team first, is a leader, and knows how to make the players around him better. He's not the most talented player in the world athletically etc..., but he's one of the best PG's in the league because he knows how to play winning basketball and doesn't focus on his own scoring stats.

    Duhon has been the Knicks MVP so far hands down, and deserves to be their captain.

    More to basketball then statistics. If he wasn't Marbury's replacement you'd appreciate him much more

    Default Duhon - A Good Player

    I don`t get it. Knicks fans are sometimes hard to understand / satisfy. When Walsh signed Duhon a lot of people wrote that it was a bad idea. Now the season started and Duhon plays very well. But there are still Knicks fans who claim that he is not the right guy for the Knicks. It's stupid.


    Comparing Duhon to Marbury is just stupid because Marbury's time with the Knicks is up. He had about 4 years to prove to be the go-to-guy- All he showed was the fact that he is a 10 years old kid captured/trapped in the body of a 30 years old man. I feel sorry for him. He is talented but he suffers from mental disorder. He needs help.

    Duhon might be a role-player. But nobody can deny that he does'nt make a good job.

    I am fed up with Marbury's situation. Walsh has to find a solution asap.

    The only people that claim that are people in love with Mebury. They are upset the Knicks/Duhon are playing well without him which only exposes them as Mebury fans over Knick fans.

    Steph has nothing to do with it!

    Not to mention 11 and 8 dont fully tell the story of Duhon's production, Duhon has not been turning the ball over I think he has something like 35 ast to 5 to's in the past two games, I don't care who's offense you're playing in that is getting the job done.

    I'll say it again...Dantoni is to PGs as Walsh was to NFL QB's. But that is not to say Duhon hasnt been solid for us! And Coach K was right about him doing better than we all predicted.

    You're saying 11 and 8 is not enough, but I doubt you predicted even those numbers for him this season!

    GetReal and NNY bring up great points I can't deny.

    Duhon's best quality is keeping his turnovers low.
    But how can I honestly trust a guy like Duhon who has had an up and down career to stay 11 and 8 which is most likely his prime.

    Duhon just reminds me of Charlie Ward, which is why a lot of Knick fans are happy with him at PG.

    Unfortunately, we don't have the championship caliber team that Ward was an asset on.

    Duhon would fit better as a back up PG...in the future, he's a professional with nice work ethic and knows how to limit turnovers which is vital.

    In order to be successful we need a more DYNAMIC PG.

    Peace.

    Good point.

    Not a bad idea to make Duhon co-captain, but it's a lil early for that.
