    I care about 16 wins in the playoffs, that's it. I care about rings. Isn't this what it's all about? Rings?

    I agree we can be really competitive. Gallo HAS to work on his footwork. I've said it over and over, imagine if this guy put in WORK to get the 100% perfect footwork and balance of Dirk. We would have Amare, The New Dirk, and possibly Amare 2.0 (Anthony Randolph) WITH a running PG. But we need things to work out.

    I have faith in Felton, I know you earlier did not like this guy. But look at our games with Charlotte...we tried to out run their Larry Brown half-court style and we got blown out of the building and Felton put up HUGE numbers...Why? Because when we ran, they ran, and that's where Felton thrives. Honestly, Felton can put up stellar numbers...if Duhon can rack up a 22 assist game, imagine what Felton, a young running PG who thrived throwing alley-oops to G-Wall against us, could do with what I think could be TWO Amare Stoudemires.

    I think Fernandez would be a good pick up...If the deal is Walker for Fernandez I'm doing that deal in a heartbeat (frees up Chandler to be packaged with Curry for any sort of upgrade). Fernandez would give us a TRUE SG.

    I do believe in this team...but honestly it doesn't matter how many games we win, the ring is what counts...that's what this is all about. Having a competitor will be nice after a decade of being terrible...but at the end of the day, the rings are what matter.
    God damn, thats an excellent point.

    I was hating on Felton because I never been a fan of PG's with low FG% and a part of me wanting to sign Arroyo for a year and draft Kemba Walker, but those point made me change my mind.

    As for playoffs, I think we'll be a good team. Kinda like the Hawks, make pass the first round maybe, but nothing else.

    We need some growing to become elite, but we have the PIECES, they just need time to grow and I have the PATIENCE to wait, because it will be PLEASURE watching Gallinari and Randolph grow, and we can finally say that these prospects are homegrown Knicks(randolph in a way if he stays).

    Thats just the satisfaction I get as a fan. I would be happy if we win 50 games, to me every game counts.

    Yeah, I was at a Knicks-Bobcats game (on the same night as the BCS National Championship, actually) and I had to watch Felton torch us for 9 assists

    Very fair point...but eventually (sooner rather than later) you and I both know none of us are going to be happy with JUST a 50 win season...

    We want Rings, period.

    A 50-win season is a nice reprieve from what we had to endure, I 100% agree with you. But eventually that won't be enough without a ring...We have the pieces in place to build towards that.

    Shut up.

    Gallo and Randolph will be good, all stars even.

    It continues to amaze me how people can seriously misspell NBA players names that they TRY and argue about. It's BOSH. Damn.

    Hometheatre guy should join the party as well and talk more about "LaBron"

    Chill. It's a game. Wanna burn the garden down and start afresh? Haha...

    The fact that we CAN beat MIA, and we CAN -- and DID -- lose to the lowly Sixers...just speaks to our situation.

    We don't have championship, winning, killer-closing-out-games-class because we HAVENT DONE IT YET! That type of pedigree needs to be groomed, and hopefully we can start doing it this season.

    We already have shown signs of such progression in how we didn't fold up against BOS, took care of CHI, dominated the WIZ, etc.

    We've been asking a few nice pieces and players to just play like rocks and experienced beasts. That they have been able to do so shows their worth, but aside from STAT they can't be looked upon to do it consistently and without more support.

    Fields, Walker...and others...time to start loosening their leashes to be the Douglas-like players...TO the actual Douglas like players.

    I think we could beat them once. Bron and Wade have big games in the Garden so I think we can expect them to do what they did to Orlando to us possibly. Were a much improved side, but lack the upper echelon talent that the Heat have. We might lock down Bosh, but there is no way were going to match up well against Bron and or Wade.

    Even though I think we will make the playoffs and to me that is the biggest step in the right direction I can think of in a long time. If we make it out of the first round then expectations have just been exceeded. I just don't think we should get carried away after a couple of wins to teams we should have beat and one unexpected win. I like the team and what were doing, but we still have a lot of work to do to make a serious playoff run and beat the the Heat consistently.

Plus the fact Amare can give you 9-10 rebounds 1-2 blocks a game and hit the mid range J just makes everything sweet.

    Randolph is only 20...he's an athletic point forward who can handle the ball, rebound, and block shots. I see him average 14 ppg 9 rebs and 1.8 blk with 2.9 assist

    Gallinari, you guys know the deal. I expect him to put up Rashard Lewis type numbers for us plus more...he's a huge threat...and a perfect compliment to Amare.

    Turiaf can pass, block shots, defense, rebound and bring energy...a player who plays to win and will bring alot of good energy to the locker room. Glad to have this tough happy son of a bitch on our team.

    Azubuike...explosive athlete with long arms, solid defense with 3pt range...excels in the open court...ala the full court fast break D'Antoni offense. Perfect player off the bench.

    Walker...one of the best leapers in the NBA, smooth player with a skilled game and a bag of tricks. 3pt range. Potential to be a good defender. Dedicated worker, lost 20 pounds this summer...expect more quickness and agility from an already established slasher. Plays above the rim like no one else. 15 ppg potential...JR Smith type numbers.

    Douglas...another guy who can defend and hit the 3...awesome combo guard who can score off the bench or as a starter.

    Chandler...Rudy Gay's depressed cousin. He can produce numbers even when playing lathargic. Great post defender, can rebound and slash. Just needs to stay way from the 3pt line and try to play like Marion.



    I'm loving this team right now. I really am happy. We have a nice young squad.

    I don't want LeBron here...I want us to win a championship without selling our franchise to a scumbag.

    Lets rejoyce and be happy we're building a good team.

    Thank you Donnie, thank you.
    +1 you was right about everything so far except Ransoft but I'll still give a year to develop
