T.D (Douglas) was our most impressive player on the court.
Hill is a NBA ready "hustler" who will get better in the paint with playingtime.
Tskitsvili better make the team, he showed impressive signs of being that C/F that Hill & Curry will need next season.
Carter hustling on both sides of the floor have to be refine with a jumper.
Almond scoring with no passing skillz, no defense is still questionable.
One would've thought Almond had the skillz to take control of this SLG with PG-Ahearn and C-Sene on the court with him.
I liked Ron Howard better than Alamond and Crawford
Who was #14 ???

I'd prefer Hill to finish around the basket with more authority. He needs to get a better feel for his strong spots around the paint. He made a couple nice moves but he still seems a bit raw. There is a possibility that he will not start over Harrington right away so don't be surprised. Also, i'd like to see Hill add about 25 lbs to his frame because he will understand the difference between these guys and players like Howard and Stoudemire in the paint.
TD was more impressive with his passing ability and ZERO turnovers. He didn't shoot the ball particularly well but we all know scoring is his strength so his PG play was the real story.
TD and JH are the only players that matter. Anyone else that happens to make the team from this league will get minimal playing time at best.
I'm not really sold on Skita yet...he always been a good summerleague guy...hes the least efficient lottery pick of all time and one of the worst to ever step foot into the NBA.
Skita has plenty of skill but it just doesn't translate into the NBA. That may be how Milicic's career ends up too.
Jordan should be atleast dominating the boards.
I just hope he shows up to games, sometimes I feel he disappears and its hard to find his presence or impact...kinda like Tim Thomas.
man this summer league team ****in sucks. douglas is shootin like 20% in 3 games, no wonder his assists are standing out. the knicks dont need a ****in passer, they need someone who can knock down open shots. yall think duhon or N8 can't spot someone comin off a screen of findin an open guy lurkin somewhere? get real. and hill is soft as ****. he's barely bangin inside. plus u don't go 2 for 11 or w/e it was in game 3 as a big man. that's unacceptable. if anthony morrow can go 18 for 26 and hit 7 three's, u better make at least half ur shots IN THE PHUCKIN POST FOR PHUCKS SAKE, don't matter if kevin garnett or gary coleman is on u.
this team gets worse game by game
Hill will be a bench player. I knew that when we drafted him. I hope he proves me wrong but I just don't see anything special about him. Atleast Gallo had 1 really good game in Summer Leagues last year. That game screwed up his entire season but atleast he looked good. Hill just looks lost out there. Another lottery pick turned bench player. That seems to be a pattern for us.
How many of the first 30 picks in this 2009 draft class will start one game next season? let's think logical!
U shouldnt have went there.....Gallo played like an absolute BUM his first 24 minutes of the game comitting turnover after turnover. The only player that had any confidence in Gallo was Mardy Collins who stop feeding the scoring Chandler & Anthony Roberson in the 2nd half of the game to work on a pick n roll with Gallo.
Gallo only played 6 decent minutes of B-Ball (scoring only) in that summer league game, and that was after he ran into a Truck.
Jordan Hill has been showing all kinds of athletic talent down-low in the paint in Vegas. U put Hill skillz n talents in the gym with Nate, Chandler, and Lee guidance in some scrimmage-games and u have a rookie player that will make very little mistake in his 24 minutes of playingtime this season.
T.D. Douglas must run in alot of scrimage-games this summer with speedy Nate to improve his IQ of being a combo-guard in the NBA.
For those who think Nate is not a natural-PG should watch him perform....if your shot is not there do not expect Nate to throw u the ball no matter how open u are. Players like Q.Richardson, Malik, Taylor, Jefferies, and Jerome James knew that Nate would never pass them the ball, that is why the lockerroom rumor of Nate need to mature never bothered me when I seen Nate chose to take the beating of taking the ball to the hoop than pass to certain players that came off the bench with him.
With all due respect Kiya, your analysis is out of whack. The words Nate, natural PG and IQ should never be in the same sentence.
Where the hell did you get the theory Q Rich, Malik, Taylor(??) and Jerome James starting rumors about how Nate is immature because he wouldn't pass them the ball because Nate, in all his wisdom, knew they couldn't score.
Sometimes I wonder if you're drunk when you post. And after that retarded post, we're supposed to take your Hill and Gallo analysis seriously?

Caught most of the second half on NBA TV last night. Toney Douglas is nice!!! He has good all-round game and showed he could knock down shots as well as get to the hole. Hill's game I liked as well. If Gallo can't stay on the court or Lee is gone, Hill will fill in nicely. I like the fact he will face up or play with his back the goal and has the quickness to get to the rack. I would like to see him finish stronger, but that will come. If Hill can develop a mid-range jumper, he will be a very effective NBA scorer. I like both of our draft picks this year so far.
