Do U recall....
Knick-Fans went buck-wild when coach Charlie Brown DNP Rookie David Lee the entire 2nd half of the season....to go on a 22 game losing streak.
Or have some of you forgotten that? if so do you recall Lee second season:
David Lee started off his second season as a double-double player that motovated Eddy Curry to have 16 straight double-double games before Lee was injured for the season (Winning the MVP in the Rook/Soph All-Star).
All the peeps that slept on David Lee at the draft and throughout his rookie contract.....debating that Lee is not worth $10M per on any NBA team b/c his stats are 11-10....forgot his stats are made on sheer hard hustling and his team-chemistry improves his teammates performance.
This was established by Lee his first 3 seasons in the league....thats why Memphis offered to give up their 4th pick last season for 30th pick David Lee. Memphis felt David Lee chemistry perfomance could replace Gasol.
And Please dont anyone give Lee's performance to coach Dantoni....especially after 2 years of just watching Isiah give playingtime to only high-contract players that hated each other....benching all the young athletic NBA ready players.
