    Default Idiots on ESPN analyze the Knicks

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Most have them finishing last or second to last in the Atlantic and either last or second to last in the East. I wish one of these people would watch a preseason game.

    Analysis Highlight:

    This is uncut what Jalen Rose had to say about the team: "Who are the free agents in 2009?" That's it.

    I wish ESPN would get people that did their job and watched basketball...

    It's to be expected. We did suck badly the last two years. That said, it's clear they underestimate the talent on the team. Which is good. Just means we can probably sneak up on teams as well who probably agree with them.


    It's imperative we get off to a good start. We have the talent. And the fact everyone thinks we suck should be further motivation.

    Co-sign 100%!

    And it should be that much sweeter for the players on this Knicks team and us as Knicks fans to see em shove all those words down these so called expert analysis throats. Dantoni should show the whole team all these predictions before our first reg season game for motivation.

    The point is, if they were really experts they'd take some time to watch some preseason. Honestly if someone like ESPN paid me to analyze bball, I would gladly sit and watch every single preseason game. It's obvious all they have done is looked at the roster from last year, how they performed, looked at who the Knicks added (and it wasn't much) and did their analysis on that...which is stupid. At least give a team that's making strides a fair shake...

    It's obvious none of these guys saw any of the games. They're calling Jamal a sleeper and Lee a bust, at least look at the box scores!

    we are so going to prove these dudes wrong....we may most likely finish 4th in the atlantic only cause we got three other contenders in the divison...and we'll win at least 37 games this year we're a decent team that will be spoilers down the stretch if were not contending for a playoff spot... but 13th or 14th come on! i know for a fact were better than the nets, bucks, bulls, pacers, bobcats just to name a few so they clearly didnt watch the games and they call themselevs experts....watch us turn heads this season behind Chandler

    I agree completely that a good start is crucial to the entirety of the seasons success.... I think I can realistically give the opinion that the Knicks can win 18 of their first 30 games. New Jersey, Chicago, Oklahoma, Sac, Min, Milwaukee and even the Cavs should be games that result in victories. I also believe that if Eddy Curry can return to form and be effective in the new system, that would result in some real positives for the Knicks and for his potential future trade. Same with Z Bo. He is painfully aware I`m sure that if he doesn`t produce throughout the completion of his contract, that his potential of being re-overpayed in the future takes a nose dive into a giant turd. Lookout for N8 this year too. He is obsessed with recognition it`s clear and if that desire can be co-aligned with team mates and with wins then that becomes tasty bait for the free agents whose names we all know to immigrate to the mecha and garner that banner we`re all burning for.
    To refer to David Lee as a bust is moronic. Those lady boys are slagging him purely for the sake of outdoing one another in slandering the Knicks and it`s a flagrant dis on a champ with the best mentality on our team.

    Here`s to Willy Chandler too.
    Potentially a cornerstone for the not so distant future and it`s booming potential.

    I wouldn't say the Cavs SHOULD be a win, but they definately are beatable for us.

    okay did you watch the preseason? Exactly what makes you think they are better then last in the atlantic div? because they won 3 preseason games? Granted I think they will do better then last year. at the same time, i can't fault anyone for betting against them. The KNICKS BLOW, until they prove otherwise. They haven't been consistent. lets see... Duhon has had one impressive game this preseason and has been avg to bad the others, crawford without his 18 shots and ball control has been a none factor. malik rose, non factor. Q-rich, non factor.Curry, non factor. Mardy collins, non factor. Ewing, Grunfeld,J. james, jared jefferies,A. roberson, Allan Houston all non factors. Gallinari hasn't played and has steph done anything to prove he's back to his old self? Robinson has been okay, his usual inconsistent self. SO far lee(C,FWD) randolph(C,FWD) and chandler(FWD) have been good, thats it and they all play same positions. And lee and randolph both aren't true centers.
    We have 200 guards and non of them have consistently show anything.

    As a matter of fact, you two bit moron, I have watched the preseason game. The fact that these guys have no idea what is going on can be summed up very quickly in their fantasy "analysis". Crawford has looked absolutely horrendous in preseason, yet he's a sleeper. As you said, Lee looked good in preseason, and he's their "bust". You say Ewing, Grunfeld, James, Jefferies, Roberson and Houston are all non-factors. 2 of those guys are getting cut, to make room for 15. That leaves us with 11 guys NOT in your "non-factor" list, which is more than most rotations in the NBA. Don't criticize me and my opinions when yours are illogical and unfounded.

    Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.

    When it comes to the Knicks
    You expect the worst
    and be happy if some good wins come out the deal.

    The offseason did not go so well for this team.
    And its showing in the preseason vs 3rd string lineups.

    Both of the Brook brothers showed they were headed for long decent NBA careers while in college. And we select soft injury prone Gallinari (who maybe forced to play in the last preseason game after Chandler injury vs Boston).

    We already have soft defenseless Curry & Zach on the team with a 3 year injured Jerome James. And not to mention soft defensive player Jared Jefferies 3 rebounds a game.

    I guess we will start our rebuilding (Players) process when the 2008-9 regular season begin, when Dantoni & Walsh find out what Knick fans knew 2 years ago about the Knick roster.

    It should not be about who we didn't pick, but about who we have. In this offense, with his skills Gallinari will be the better fit than either Brooks brother. Let's give him a season or two before we doom him. He is 20 years old after all.
