    Unhappy And the Knicks Backup Center is.....

    In my opinion david lee is a power forward whos capable of playin center against some teams. With Zach Randolph gone, who should be our backup center?

    Tim thomas - One of the tallest players on the team, but he plays more like a guard

    Eddy Curry - Fat, useless

    Jerome James - see eddy curry

    Jared Jeffries - skinny weak scrub

    Very tough to chose but i gotta go with jared jeffries, at least he can get up and down the court unlike jerome and Eddy. Tim thomas has no business playin center, even though i see D'antoni occasionally giving thomas maybe 5 minutes when we play small ball.

    Really, we don't have one center capable of playing on our team. So we're gonna be playing very small ball this year.

    I didnt think of Al...probably because he only averages 5 rebounds a game. But thats about what tim thomas averages, and jared jeffries once averages 5.2 rebounds per game. Smh @ the knicks being the worst reboundin team in the league

    *edit*

    Al harrington is capable of averaging 6-7 rebounds a game if he gets the minutes

    Lets see here.... Timmy Thomas, Al Harrington, Jefferies, and David Lee were drafted into the NBA as SF.
    Each of those players natural position is at SF.... inwhich the only one out of the 4 players that could dominate the PF position for 30 mpg is David Lee.

    Are the 4 players above supposed to teach our soft bum rookie Gallinari how to play the SF/PF position NBA style this season? that's the only reason I could find for Jefferies, Harrington, and Timmy being in a Knick uniform.

    Project Curry is still the Knicks only legit Center so why hav'nt Walsh hired some Bigmen coaches to train him throughout this season....he is being paid $10M per for the next 3 seasons.

    Dantoni coaching career in the NBA has yet to show he could coach a dominating center....he is a two-PF frontcourt coach.

    I think Jared Jeffries should start. Mike D'Antoni likes him, so he might as well play him. Plus, he's the only center that can play defense on our roster. Unless you count Jerome James.
