They are both very overrated.
NEW YORK KNICKS VS. TORONTO RAPTORS
David Lee and the Knicks
19 points per game, 10.9 rebounds, 3.0 assists, .3 blocks
Chris Bosh and the Raptors
24.0 points per game, 11.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.1 blocks
The Raptors are currently on a 2 game losing streak. With a win, they will reach .500. The Eastern Conference is so weak, a .500 record will likely guarantee a playoff berth.
The Knicks are currently 1.5 games out of 8th place. A Knick win and a Chicago loss will get the Knicks within .5 games of the 8th and final playoff spot.

Last night I cheered for Boston for the first time in my life because they were playing The Bulls and a Bulls loss and a Knick win tonight would have given us the 8th spot, and The Celtics let me down so I hate them even more today!

Good game thread. I'm thinking that Gallo is going to drop a career high tonight. I mean it is Italian Heritage Night. Lol. We really need to come out with this win tonight. Let's go Knicks !
Mission : X Heat / Target : L.James
Whoa! I never knew that the Raptors were this good of a basketball team.How come people never mention them as one of the top 3 teams in the Easten Conference?
They are NOT a top 3 team and maybe thats why nobody mentioned them as such.
Why do they look this good if they're not a top Eastern Conference team?
Because the Knicks are playing the worst defense in a long time and can't hit a shot for their life. Very disappointed with this start. This is horrible.
Mission : X Heat / Target : L.James
Looks like the only Italian celebrating Italian Heritage night is Bargnani. What is it with these big Italians that shoot 3s better than they can dunk.
There are a few positives to look at in this performance so far.
1.The Raptors are making the country of Canada feel proud.
2.Chris Bosh will sleep well tonight after this blow out.
3.The Utah Jazz will be one step closer to getting a good first round draft pick.
4.Andrea Bargnani is shining for the people of his country on Italian heritage night.
5.The Knicks could start worrying about the Pistons at half time.
Never realized Duhon was that slow. I think I could stay in front of him one on one. He's got to be gone next year, D'ants of all people has to see that Duhon is 2nd rate after coaching Steve Nash.
I wish that letting go of Duhon was an option.But the truth is that acquring a replacement point guard in the NBA is a rare commodity.
If you can't play Curry, Hill, Douglas, Hughes when your going down by 30 at halftime, your just being a jerk. One, fans don't like to hear all the problems a coach is having, it's like 4th grade and he can't control the classroom. Walsh is going to have a hard time. Other GM's don't want to get a player that is getting into it with a coach, and DA is growing the list every week. Robinson, Curry, Hughes, soon Hill, hey, your getting half the bench.
I sort of liked the guy, when he was trying everything and with some defense, he mastered a good December, but as I thought, he has lost this team for the year with the head games, DNP's, sitting players when they could and want to contribute. You don't even give them a chance. This guy, and his high school basketball coach brother need to head back to WV. He is not going to be too attractive to players boys, if your looking for 2010, you don't get arguments in the press and they are coming big time. Agents are making quotes, trades asked for and we are not even at the All Star Break.
Lee is driving his price up, Gallo is the only one that may develop, but not into the best shooter a pro head coach ever saw, please.
He said his brother was great addition, with all his high school experience with the young players like Hill and Lee. One, Lee had a better coach with KV at Chaminade in high school, a tad better coach with Billy D in Florida, I don't think he needs the head coaches brother with only a career high school coach. Yes, that was a quote from coach DA, wonder what the brother pulls down?
Two, I don't see our top draft pick averaging over 5 minutes a game this year. First you screw up the team chemistry, next it will be the media (and New York dishes out better than anywhere), then, like us fans, we will tune out. Watching a group that doesn't get along our has tension all over it is not entertainment. Look at the faces during the time outs and down the bench. Some are talking to each other and laughing, he has lost his troops. Curry, Hughes, Robinson, Harrington, Jeffries, Hill they are thinking about, who will I be for next year. Hill is wondering if this is it. All got miles left on them though, no, not superstars, but surely off the bench players that many teams will use. The older guys may play for a couple million, not bad work if you can get it. Look want A.I. is making, the just want to play and win.
Time for Datline, then read the boxscore, I am sure Duhon got his 30 plus minutes, Gallo also, even if they are having a terrible night. Don't want to be fair weather, but this year is getting more ugly by the week.
Going to Canada, is like taking a big cut in pay, no major league baseball or NBA basketball player doesn't want to be there very long, so team turnover rates are the highest.
I believe the Blue Jays one a world series, with some veterans back in the nineties, Andre Dawson rings a bell. Hockey, well they own that, but even the superstars will come south for the salary boost sometime in their career. Back to 48 hours, I can't watch. Sorry about the long rant.
