Welcome to the official MSG33 pregame show. I am the Gold Mac 10 and its time to break down Friday nights preseason game. This is the last game. Who cares about this game? I dont. After the first couple of preseason games it becomes boring. I want the season to start.

Anybody know if Danilo is gonna get some minutes in this game?
no hes not gonna play, today was only his 1st or 2nd practice. but we know curry isnt gonna play because D'Antoni hates him. haha. this game doesnt mean much, i think we have all seen the positives and negatives from pre-season play already.
The Knicks are 3-3 in preseason vs the Nets, 76ers, and Celtics.
Tonight is the 7th and last preseason game vs Nets..... the Knicks should win.
But dont any Knick-fan get all hyped-up off the win.
Nothing have been proven that we are not the 23 or 33 win team we used to be.
Coach Dantoni vs Coach Frank = Dantoni by a mile
Coach Frank no longer have coach Isiah to beat him as the WORST coach in the NBA.
Poor draft selection
It would've been nice to see Danilo Galinari "TRY" to go up against the Nets bigmen. The Nets young bigmen Boone, Sean, and Lopez, would've sent Galinari to the D-League in just one preseason outing.
Like it or not Galinari's value gets lower each game that he miss.
And you can't compare his back problem to lastseason Oden.<!-- google_ad_section_end --><!-- / message -->
I'd say play the first half like a regular season game, then pull the main contributors and just play the Ewings, Robersons, and punish Eddy Curry by playing the whole second half of a meaningless game.
I'm sure Houston said no because he didn't want to embarass himself by not playing up to the ability we remember him at, but it woulda been nice to see him make a cameo tonight before getting cut.
