    Dantoni should know Curry is not ready for scrimmage games now.
    Plus none of Curry teammates on court is digging him being out there with them.
    Because the only way to get him into game shape is to put him in a game.... And its the preseason so it doesn't matter if we win or lose. Looked bad but considerin he's had a bacterial infection and barely practiced i expected even worse.

    All the D'Antoni doubters should be impressed with the way he hasn't just handed Eddy minutes. Unless Eddy reverts back to 2 years ago i really see him playing 15 min. a night tops.

    Plus to put Curry into the Marbury, Nate, and Chandler lineup when this 2nd unit lineup were chopping away the (8 point) lead the Knicks starters gave Philly to a 4 point lead, and then Dantoni inserts Curry into their lineup was cruel and unruly punishment towards the 2nd unit of Marbury, Nate, and Chandler who were looking for a running teammate while they push the ball.

    Putting Curry into the game was something I would expect from coach Isiah Thomas. Especially when you have the fastest players that can push the ball up the court on the floor with fresh legs ready to run n gun the last 5 minutes of the first quarter.

    It seems to me that Eddy Curry dont want to be on this Knick Team where he gets no luv from his homeboy Crawful and 20/10 Zach Randolph. Inwhich Dantoni must fear to put Curry into a lineup with either Crawford, Q.Rich, and Zach on the court.

    Why was Mardy Collins yanked out of the game after scoring 10 straight points on 5-5 shooting in the 4th quarter? he was just getting into his game, plus after each time he scored he increased his effort on defense. Collins made coach Cheeks call a timeout.

    The Zach & Lee bigman frontcourt is well and decent in the preseason games however, to have Lee in the game every second that Zach is on the court is getting old and played out in just the 3rd pre-game, when Lee should spend more playingtime in an uptempo run n gun small lineup of Nate, Marbury, Chandler, and Malik pushing the ball up court with fiesty speed.

    Kiya its the PRESEASON... It doesn't count. Thats why he is tinkering with the lineup and giving guys some minutes. If it was a regular season game obviously Curry wouldn't have played, or he woulda went with the lineup that was working, but since the game is meaningless he tried to get guys some burn in live NBA action. I don't see the problem with that. I actually woulda liked to see Ewing Jr. and Roberson atleast get a minute or two since the games don't matter.

    And Kiya if Gallo was physically able to play i guarantee he woulda got minutes.

    The preseason has some meaning as far as getting guys in shape and just building chemistry, but winning and losing don't matter. Considering the Sixers absolutely blew us out three times last season the fact we split with them and played competitively both times should be a good sign.

    i think the starting line up should be

    PG- Duhon
    SG- Marbury
    SF- Chandler
    PF-Randolph
    C- LEE

    PS. when danillo becomes healthy then he gets the SF spot

    from NYPost: "He had six assists, but seemed more passive than he was in the first two games."

    more: "I'm a starter, period. It's not my choice to be coming off the bench. It's the coach's choice."

    I should kick myself in the ass for believing in this guy again and again despite how many times he's dissapointed me. What he said last week gave me hope that he will come with the right attitude. But it's obvious he's as egocentric and narcissistic as they come and that aint gonna change.

    Seriously, if he's gonna undermine what Coach is trying to do, send him home. How many chances is he gonna get?

    Shocking!!! Who woulda guessed Marburys new attitude woulda only lasted a week. Come on guys you all really have to stop giving him 300 chances he hasn't earned them.

    We all should feel awful for a guy who left the team last season and now is asked to come off the bench because his teammates hate him. And the kicker is hes getting 21 million to come off the bench.

    Just keep your mouth shut and collect your paycheck Marbury. You earn start minutes by playing well not complaining.

    I agree - read the whole article so **** doesn't get take out of context.

    "I always want to start," he said. "I'm a starter period. That's just what it is. It's not my choice to be in this situation. It's the coach's choice. It's his team and you've got to do what he says to do."

    Marbury was responding to a question about whether his goal is to start. He was speaking to a large group of reporters following the Knicks' 116-109 preseason loss to the Sixers at the Garden. Marbury, a starter for his entire career, has been used as a reserve in all three preseason games and will stay in that role unless he is traded or released.

    "I don't have no choice," he said. "That's my role. I have to assert myself to playing that role and that position. I just want to win. I want to win a championship in New York."

    I'm so sorry for hurting your feelings.

    How did you know I only read one quote? How did you know I didn't read the whole article? I must confess, you got me there!!! I admit it... when I open up a frikin news story, I only scan it to go straight to the sentences where they talk bad about Stephon and don't even bother reading everything else... cause you know, I'm a hater.

    I hate him, I hate the team (it's obvous everytime I criticize our defense)... hell, I hate my own kids because Ive been known to tell them the truth even if it hurts. I also hate my wife 'cause I told her that dress she put on last week is ugly.

    I'm also blind, because I've failed to see Marbury is better than Duhon (disregard the many times I've written that Stephon is the most talented player on our team).

    I'm not taking anything out of context. I just want him to walk the line so that he doesn't stir up controversy. Some words he said were right, but the ones I quoted shows he's still thinking more of himself than the team.

    Compare that to the fat fuk we have in the middle who I honestly believe should have his mouth wired shut so he won't eat anymore. Unlike Stephon, he didnt come ready to camp. But when he talks, you can see that he's willing to walk the line but Stephon you can read between the lines that he's gonna resort to whatever it takes to serve himself first and then the team second.

    Stephon needs to be smarter and not let the frikin press bait him into saying this ****. Reminds me of an old saying that translated in English goes "If what you're gonna say is not as beautiful as the sound of silence, then don't say it".

    That's all I want homey... for him not to talk about starting even though he believes in his heart that he should because doing so just ****s up this team's chemistry. You know he aint telling D'Anotni nor Walsh this stuff but he does go to the press with it because it is his way of getting what he wants.

    It goes like this

    Mike D is an NBA coach.

    He gets paid millions based on his creditials. If Mike D picks a starting line up, deal with it.

    When you have half the credentials an NBA Coach has or a basketball broadcaster, player, or columinist; then and only then can your views be taken seriously.

    What do you all do for a living? If your not involved in Basketball, then do yourself a favor and stop trying to prove people wrong. Feel free to have your opinions, thats all any of us are entitled to. But none of us have any right to say anyone here is wrong. Thats all it comes down to.

    Any of us make a living trying to prove people that your views are worth more than real Coaches and players? NO. Walk in to Penn Plaza with your resume and internet postings and show it to an NBA team, if they don't hire you its for a reason.

    Mike D knows what hes doing. If you can do a better job, then why the fuk do we spend our lives on an internet message board instead of trying to get a job in a field where we are all experts in?

    None of our opinions are worth dick. So we need to all just stop it already and grow the fuk up... The Knicks starting lineup doesn't fee your kids, so just chill out and let proffesionals do their job.

    i only assumed you didnt read the whole article because you said it was the same old marbury, but if you read what he was responding to, and the quotes before and after that one, its not really him being selfish. i love how this is for knicks fan, and i write one thing and you wanna sit here and mock me, last time i checked were on the ship together brother.

    But arent we on here to post our opinions about the team? I fully support the move of the coach on the grounds of him being an accomplished coach. But, this site is a place for fans to state their opinons be it for or against it. Not to mention the reason Mike can get paid millions is because we the fans support the team faithfully. Without our support there isnt millions to give him, so with that said shouldnt we be allowed to sound off. Again I like Mike Dantoni and I really respect that he is going to do whatever that gives us the best chance at winning, but, that doesnt mean that other fans are automatically supposed to take that stance. Fan opinons are just the nature of the beast in any sport, so I think we have every right to sound off.

    Now with all that said the argument about Steph and Duhon has gotten really old fast, but again, as fans we do have a right to have an opinion about any move of this franchise.

    But I do see where you're coming from.
