    Nyk Logo Too many SF!!!!

    Okay so we traded for Richardson during the 2005-06 season, signed Jeffries in the 2006-07 season, drafted Balkman in 2006, Chandler in 2007 and now Gallinari in 2008.

    Although Jeffries can play the 3 or 4 and even the 5 depending on the opponent, we still have 5 SF who can make a good case for playing time.

    Richardson may still be the starter just because he thrived in this system when in Phoenix and he was one of the few players that cared on defense last season.

    Jeffries is interesting because although he's not a good scorer, he has the ability to stretch the defense and rebound. He can cause mismatch problems for a lot of teams with his size and quickness. Not sure how D'Antoni views him though.

    Balkman is a high energy guy who I think fits in great with this new system. Every team needs a guy who will throw their bodies around just to get a rebound or block a shot. His intensity should get him playing time alone.

    Chandler is the wildcard here. If he has truly progressed from last season and become more smarter in terms of the NBA game, he should probably get good minutes. The skills were already there, all he needed was confidence to reinforce it.

    Gallinari is basically a pro being labeled as a rookie. He's played on a high level since he was about 14 and is one of the most NBA ready players in this year's rookie class. His father has ties to our coach and let's not forget he can flat out score. I believe he gets good rookie minutes next season.

    Now I ask all of you Knick fans (and haters), who deserves to share the 48 min/gm? Two of these guys will not get any minutes!

    Balkman would have to bulk up and I wouldn't put Gally in the PF position in his 1st year. He'll have enough trouble guarding the opposing SF in this league.

    NBA is Soft.
    Gallo can easily play PF
    Rashard Lewis plays PF full time in Orlando.
    and Gallo is much more physical than Lewis.


    Marbury
    Richardson
    Chandler
    Gallo
    Lee

    Even if you did that, you still have 4 SF to figure out. I don't believe any of our SF are D-leaguers, so you have to do something with them.

    If this lineup played orlando, Lee would get murdered by Howard.

    I want Jefferies and Richardson gone.

    We could keep Chandler, Balkman and Gallo, where Chandler can be put at the 2, Balkman at the 3 and Gallon at the 4. 6"8, 6"8, 6"10.

    Gally Lee and Balkmen at 4, Chandler and Q at 3. Crawford and Nate at 2, Steph and Duhon at 1.. Now what about C? We need to trade either Zach or Eddy, personally I don't care who, because Zach we can get more for, and Eddy we get less, but Eddy's much worse.

    I would prefer to keep Jeffries only because he can guard multiple positions. I think he can be an important role player when surrounded by multiple scorers.

    He may not be able to match a lot of PF in size, but at least he has the length to change some shots.

    The fact that Jefferies is an awful shooter makes it hard to keep him, if he improves on his shooting he would be a good player because of his ability to play multiple positions and guard them.

    But shooting is what kills him, from everywhere; FT, Close Range, Long Range, Midrange. The man has no range.

    In my opinion Q-Rich should be the odd man out, but he is untradable. He is the oldest and slowest so it's time for the new blood to do their thing. Balkman has to show something because he has stiff competition. Jefferies just for D I guess and because Isaiah gave him such a ridiculous contract must stay.

    I honestly think Chandler or Gallo can occasionally play SG, T-Mac is mad tall and plays that position well.

    If Randolph doesn't get traded than he is the starting PF.

    Marbury/Duhon/Roberson
    Crawford/Robinson
    Chandler/Gallo/Richardson/Balkman
    Randolph/Lee/Jefferies
    Curry/James

    There is talent on this roster but no chemistry. Let's c what happens.
