    This is the news I've wanted to hear for awhile. Baker has enough time to get to know the team before the playoffs start. The playoffs this year will really be interesting now. When Dikembe gets back we will have plenty of size below the basket now.

    Trybanski and Frank Williams were placed on IL. Moochie Norris was activated.

    Argh!!! Norris over Williams...? No no no!! What's with New York's coaches being unable to figure out who should be the backup point guard? At least Lenny knows who should be the STARTING point guard, but it's so obvious that Williams can give us so much more than Norris. I refuse to like Norris until he gets the fro back anyway. After that, maybe I'll give him a chance...

    Baker should perform well now since he's been given enough chances.. He better perform well or he'll never be in the NBA again..

    IMO those minutes were for familiarization.. he'll get the flow of things in a few games.. although we don't have that much games left for experimenting with the lineup..

    here's some portions from today's article (NYP)
    Calling it his last chance, Vin Baker broke into tears yesterday at the close of his inaugural news conference as a Knick.
    (...)
    As his eyes moistened, Baker, a recovering alcoholic, added, "I'm grateful for the opportunity that God has given me. It's just tremendous and emotional for me. I'm going to work hard every day to enjoy this for my family, friends, for my teammates, for the fans of New York. I'm just grateful to be here. I hope it turns out great everyday."
    (...)
    Thomas' brother died of alcoholism. Knick owner James Dolan battled back from the disease. Yesterday, Baker pointed to Thomas' sensitivity as a key to choosing the Knicks, in addition to being a 75-minute drive from his parents in suburban Hartford.

    i have a question for you:
    Do you think Vin Baker will be booed? Some insiders` oppinion was that vin should have signed with miami, where fans are not so noisy as in NY
    This pressure might lead him to the bottle again

    If pressure will lead him to the bottle, get rid of him. It's like you have to give a pacifier to a baby to get him to stop crying.
