    Default I really, really, don't want this team to suck.

    Yes after only 2 preseason games, I'm scared. Its unreasonable that i am thinking this way but this is the Knicks. We have no luck on our side so this need to look good early for me. I am admitting that I'm stupid for feeling this way, but damn, i can't help it.

    in all honesty, i really didn't want stat. the guy has always been a poor rebounder. but what's done is done and he's our guy so I'll root for him. that said, if the knicks start the season struggling and are still struggling by the break mike needs to get the axe and stat needs to get dealt for as much value as we can get in return.

    i don't care if we just signed him. there's no point in wasting whatever is left of his prime years and knicks fans bloated hopes of making the playoffs. we're going to need alot more to win a championship and I'm more than willing to give gallo, ant and chandler the keys.

    i don't think dealing gallo, ant, chandler for melo would put us over the hump either.

    It is a little soon to worry, but I can understand your skepticism. Knicks haven't had much luck in turning a team into contenders in a while.

    Amare is doing exactly what we need from him and he's not the worst rebounder. These games will only make the Knicks stronger as it highlights their weaknesses. Now they need to work on making their weaknesses their strengths. Rebounding priority number one.

    As fans we need to stay positive.

    I didn't like the Knicks letting both preseason opponents score over 100ppg. If you can't stop weak sister teams like Milano and the Wolves whats going to happen against the better teams.

    I think it's psychologically important for the Knicks to do well in the preseason and in the beginning of the regular season because there is so much skepticism about this team. Most outside of Knick fans don't think we're that good and the Knicks need to not fall back on the excuses of it's only the preseason or the season is still young if they start losing.

    But remember ... it is just that. Preseason! You can't just come in after game 1 or 2 and instantly gel (even the 3 down south needed some work). Look how many players in the starting rotation were new!
    I think this preseason just exposes where we need to focus our training camp on. I'm not pressed on opponents scoring 100+ points on us as I think we should be working more on how to guard without fouling (STAT and Moz)...defense will come. And then let's concentrate on better pasing and less turnovers...after that we will be ok

    Still want Melo tho

    This is also my concern. I understand its only preseason and guys are still getting accustomed to playing alongside each other, BUT you do not need to be familiar with your teammate to play defense or rebound AT ALL. Teams are supposed to have a better showing each playoff game as they work on specific problem areas.

    I'm also very concerned about the way Gallo is still being handled. He's still taking too many 3 pointers (more than half of his shots)and not diversifying his game. Felton is looking subpar so far but I will give him a small pass for now since he's learning a new system.

    I have mixed feelings about AR so far. I can see how dangerous he can be sometimes but he REALLY needs to learn how to pace himself, slow down and play team ball. This kind of mental error will cost us games in close contests.
    Amare had an ok game yesterday but he only played 20 min so not a big deal. Other than that he's been as advertised so far.

    Everyone else has played up to expectations offensively. However, if we want to be taken seriously, defense has to be improved. If Dantoni can't get it done with 2 real centers and better defensive players then he can get the fack outta here asap.

    Preseason's a learning curve. Losing to the Wolves was disappointing, of course it was. Reserve judgement for now. Losing in preseason games is a let down, as is any loss, but it's constructive at the same time.

    Don't jump ship on Stat either. He's shown what he's capable of. He did so at the highest level against the reigning champs in the WCFs:



    No one took it to the champs offensively like Stat did last year.

    He averaged 25/game in the series and (marginally) outplayed Gasol. He did, however, have three -5 rebound games though. The guys not a rebounder, and it is a concern.

    rediculous...

    This is just a taste of how the season will be if they don’t make that move. If they can let the weak ass T-Wolves outplay them (in every way) the Knicks will get demolished in regular season by a much fiercer Eastern Conference. The Knicks will go nowhere with this current roster. Felton got his ass handed to him by a guy we passed up on. And gallo was the same inconsistent shooter that can’t do anything else right but hide away from the basket. I sure hope the coach isn’t holding up this trade because Shallow Gallo will have to be involved. Stat will not be able to make this team rise by himself. It’s a fact that EVERY CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM has 2 or more elite ballers. This is the formula and the ass brass of NY seems to be having trouble figuring this out. This year was supposed to be the year all of this talk about “it’s only pre-season” and “give them some time to gel” talk ceased. F-that!! Other teams with new players seem to gel pretty well…why not the Knicks?
    <O</O
    D’ Walsh blew the Lebron deal and had no back up plan because they were too arrogant in thinking they had Lebron, then they panicked and packed the team with trade bait. But wait….no one wants to deal with the Knicks because they caused too many enemies with their incompetent management. Looks like a repeat of yesteryears is about to happen, but this time around we get to see the embarrassment with a bunch of new and younger faces to be laughed at. What a disappointing franchise the Knicks can be at times. HURRY UP, dump the waste and grab up Mello you dumb twits!! We can win now and later. Stop planning for the future with sports…this is not actual politics. Players are not stock or inanimate objects that can be depended on later. We are talking about PEOPLE …who always have the tendencies to change with the times. Nothing is guaranteed with athletes. In the future, if we need to make more changes then we’ll do so…if need be. All of this conservative crap is going to back fire. I don’t know why some of these dumb ass die hard fans are so chumming with sussy players. I don’t give a crap about their charisma; I’m not trying to date these dudes, I just want my monies worth (win or lose). Bring in the B-Ballers. Why in the hell is a big city team like the Knicks so weak at filling rosters, while other teams like LA, Chicago, <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comChicago</st1:City>, <st1:State w:st=" /><st1:City w:st="on">Miami</st1:City>, and <st1:City w:st="on"><ST1Boston</ST1</st1:City> are so savvy in building teams year after year, dynasty after dynasty. This sucks big time…but probably not as much as fans that accept this S#!T.

    You have it twisted. Its not about being a fanboy or whatever. Your being totally irrational with your comment. Put Amare on the trading block if the team is struggling by the break??? The guy has been one of the best big men for years and your ready to give him up that easily? Walsh would lose his job if he did that.

    Newsflash: If the team is struggling by the break then you get a whole new coaching staff. Period.
