    Default Which 2 will be cut?

    Who will it be folks?

    Will it be the Coney Island kid?

    How about any of the fatties upfront?

    H14, Patjr., Roberson?

    Maybe even Mardy, Jeffries, Rose?

    Fact is, there WILL be two that will be cut, so place your bets now!!!

    Allan should probably beat out Robertson just on legacy alone! I hear Ewing is not impressing Mike too much.

    Robertson and Houston will have the same sort of role with the team and even with four seasons off for H20 they are probable equal skill wise or even if Robertson is just a little better I just don't see him making the team over Allan

    Sorry Pat Jr. legacy just doesnt work for you like H20. Ewing is another Balkman, which is great for a lot of teams but Donnie and Mike decided to move Balkman for a reason and it wouldnt make sense to take him after letting a more established player go this summer....even if his father is the Greatest Knick ever

    Collins is almost a definite. Didn't impress anyone in summer leauge with his 36% shooting. People want his offense to improve, and it clearly hasn't. For Mardy to stay he has to be a Duhon on defense and get better at passing. If he can't show that in these practices, he is either gone or won't play.

    James is an embarissment. Even thought he is finally running around in practices. Becuase Jeffries is out for 2 months, James becomes more of a need. But he was a need last year and only played 2 minutes. He cost too much money for the little value he still has left. He can't run and won't last a minute in Mike D's run and gun style of play.

    I'm guessing Collins and James if they had to cut two guys.

    I agree with u those r my 2 guys i see getting cut. I dont see Houston getting cut for his leadership and that youtube clip of him, I also dont see ewing getting cut or marbury cuz of what kind a shape hes in. Collins has no point of being on the roster with already they have 2 many guards that r just better than him. And Jerome James is Jerome James, if its not 1 of them I see the knicks dumping Roberson

    There are pros and cons to all of these guys:

    Marbury
    Pros: best talent on team PERIOD
    Cons: Starbury wars; team chemistry

    Roberson
    Pro: deadly shooter that may shine in coach's system
    Con: too many guards ahead of him on the food chain

    Rose
    Pros: Veteran leadership
    Cons: not the most productive for many minutes

    James
    Pros: if healthy and focused, may be needed up front desperately
    Cons: true focus in life has been MCDonald's Happy Meals

    Ewing Jr.
    Pros: nostalgia, potential at the 3spot
    Cons: way down on the food chain

    Collins
    Pros: Big guard who can defend, maybe even better than Duhon
    Cons: he's been God-awful for too long

    Houston
    Pros: Veteran leadership, nostalgia and best shooter on team
    Cons: last time we saw him play, Saddam Hussein was still a free man

    There are pros and cons for the rest of the team, but I doubt any one them, for good or bad reasons, is on the potential cut list (except for Grunfeld who's the guaranteed 3rd cut)

    well my votes were for roberson and rose, roberson was summer league star. yes, but in my opinion he was kind of a "knee jerk reaction" to sign to the team. the truth is he wont be a "help" to the team, just another occupied spot on the bench. As far as rose is concerned, yeah the guy is the veteran of the group, and a "locker room guy" but when he plays its only for a few minutes, he undersized, and not a real offensive threat, no im not saying that james is but so far james has shown up for practice and D'antoni is actually a bit surprised. Our predicted starting center, curry, claims he is sick, and hasnt shown his face at training camp yet.

    new york new york I agree Patrick was a great player. To claim he was the greatest knickever means you never saw Clyde play.
