    Default Taz has been unleashed drops 17 on SAC







    I told you guys it wasn't a great move.
    We lack a bench...Taz would of been perfect for us in this up tempo system.

    Now Taz can be apart of one of the best team in the NBA, the hot Nuggets with new leader Chauncey Billups.

    Billups
    Jones
    Anthony
    Martin
    Nene

    6th men
    Taz
    Jr Smith
    Kleiza

    = elite squad.


    I'm with Kiyaman till I die on this...Taz is the truth, always been and always will be.

    Balkman is underrated, but I don't think D'Antoni likes guys without an outside shot. The one exception seems to be Jeffries, but I guess he likes Jeffries better because he intends to use him at the 5. Balkman is a SF. I think we got a trade exception in that deal. So maybe we can use it to get a decent SG or backup PG once a roster spot opens up. Other than that, the trade wasn't one of Walsh's best moments.

    He scored 17 points against a team the Nuggets beat by 33 points. Earth shattering. Talk to me when he does well against a good team.

    i was gonna make mention of balkmans performance, but its not worthy of note. Crawford is more consistent than balkman, that alone speaks volumes. Balkman has many great characteristics, thats why he is in the NBA, so to say he sucks would not give his game any justice. He is A DEFENDER, so looking for offensive production would be a constant dissapointment to anyone searching. But the reason i didnt like him was because he was complaining about playing time, and he doesnt even have the stripes to do so. Balkman is a glue kinda guy, thats just what he does. What also turned me off from him was his overrated defense. He did not hustle as much as he did the previous season; i watched him, he has a low bball IQ, and isnt good, he maked horrible decisions, and his free throw shooting is atrocious. I expect a few good games out of balkman, but nothing to regret. Who knows, PEJ might be better than balkman when we get that roster spot from cuttino.

    Why are you guys tryna steal Balkman's shine? Just let it be. If he scored 17 points, then give him credit. Donnie Walsh made a mistake by trading Balkman for a worthless second round pick. He should have just waived Eddy Curry or Jerome James and gave him a roster spot. It's funny how people always say, "if we get rid of Curry and James, we'll lose a lot of money." Well if you keep them, you'll lose a roster spot and you'll lose games. You dig?

    nah he gets props though i mean he aint much of a scorer so him dropping more then 15 is deff a good thing for him i always did like the dudes hustle and last year he was the only one that actually got the crowd hyped with a dunk not just a 3 pointer

    I dont think it's that Dantoni didnt like Balkman, but, I think he didnt see the point of having him along with Jefferies. Because from what I have seen out of JJ he is going to be used like Balkman was. And like you said it's Jefferies being able to slide to the 5 spot whereas Balk was stuck between 3 and 4. Balkman ofcourse played with a lot more passion which is invaluable, I mean could you imagine Balkman running the floor in Dantoni's system, and the cat can handle the rock!

    5 star thread....if i knew who the maggot was that gave this 1 star, i would give then some bad rep

    Balkman is very active from the first second he steps on the court. It doesnt take long for him to make an impact, he would be real nice on our team right now. Hes the type of player that could help us get extra fast break opportunities, and hes good at finishing fast breaks whether it be a layup or going high above the rim.

    The Knicks have too many forwards, because Donnie Walsh drafted Gallinari, and he just traded Aaron Crawford for Albert Harrington. You're right. Getting rid of 2 centers isn't smart, when they're producing. But Is Curry or James producing? No, so why keep them? They're a waste of space. And although I'm a fan of Marbury, he's wasting space too. It's not his fault, but it's the truth. Walsh needs to pay him and let him go to a contender. It's not like the Knicks are using him.
