    Default Ok were 1-2 but look on the bright side...

    If you look at the way the Knicks are playing right now, it's actually not too bad considering it's the start of the season, a new group gelling together etc.

    The games we lost were reasonably close games. Stat isn't doing bad considering the pressure that's on him to perform. Once him and Felton settle into a good relationship I predict a more consistent 20-25ppg with 8 boards from Amare.

    Our role players are playing fairly well, and Chandler has exceeded most peoples expectations (personally I've been saying he's gonna burst into a solid 20-5 guy for the last couple of seasons when he had a summer uninjured).

    So really, the only piece of our puzzle missing right now is Gallinari. If he actually played not even to his potential but to the standard of last season (15-5) then we are gonna be in a winning position.

    Looking forward to the rest of the season

    Agreed. I'm personally more excited about the fact that we've been averaging a TON of blocked shots...we were 2nd to last in the league in shotblocking last year and dead last the year before that, so it's interesting to see that we're 2nd in the league in blocked shots right now. I know it's only 3 games, but I don't think last year's team could've gotten 10 blocked shots in a game if they were playing against a high school team.

    The offensive rebounds are awesome too.

    STAT needs to post up, and work the pick and roll. He was pretty bad tonight, with some terrible TOs handling the ball. He had 4 fouls early on but still played 35 minutes. I was not impressed by Amar'e's head down game. We played best when the ball was moving.

    I like what the Knicks have shown so far too. The upcoming games are against Orlando, Chicago and Washington. Realistically we should be looking at 3-3 next week.

    Unhappy

    I dont think any KO member expected the Knicks to beat Boston and Portland
    or expect the Knicks to take both games down the wire to the last 2 minutes
    of the game.
    Especially when we played a "Man to Man" offense/defense in both games,
    we showed no design plays on offense, our chemistry was individual, we
    had a few completed pick n rolls, little comunication, and 7 players with
    green light to shoot 3-balls, rather than work with their teammates to get
    a closer shot.
    We need one win over our next two teams to pick up morale to improve chemistry.
    We have an unexpected hustling-star player in the making in Landry Fields.
    Chandler could do alot better than what he is doing, he have to get a better
    grip with his bench players.
    Douglas played lost in both games with Felton holding the point for 37 mpg.
    Felton shouldve worked out with his new-teammates over the summer.
    Amare have to get use to playing 30 mpg in a halfcourt offense

    Galoo wake up YOU ****ISH GEL HAIRED ASS LICKED ***** Aaaaaaaaarghhhhhhhhhh why he can't play 15 ppg like season ago ?
    I think this is another puzzle - recovering right now and his name is KELENNA !
    We should also consider that we are approximately 10 mln below salary cup and we are competitive but not able to win team

    I wonder if D.League Earl Barron would accept that $1M to be a 24
    mpg starter with Amare & Gallo. The idea of Mozgov, Turiaf, and Chandler
    fresh legs coming off the bench in a lineup would look real well out
    rebounding alot of our oponents.
    that one player could help out our rebounding problem alot

    That's the cleverest idea I've heard this day definitely ! Give me a contact to walsh or mike - we must tell them because they're not so clever like fans Earl got 11 rpg with us in 7 games last season.

    u think!

    Turiaf/Bynum was in the same draft class as Frye/Lee .....
    Lakers selected Bynum/Turiaf, whom to this day the Lakers two
    bigmen has not reached the potential of Frye/Lee.
    Those two young teammates had Kobe asking to be traded.
    Everyone paid more attention to the Lakers adding players Derick Fisher
    and Pau Gasol to the lineup. While no one mention or paid attention to
    the 3 new coaches Phil Jackson added to the Lakers coaching staff after
    Kobe's bold statement.

    Trading FA Lee rather than keeping Lee for two more seasons set us back
    two to three years in search for a high IQ complimentary bigman.
    We will pay the players from the GSW trade $10M this season, and these
    players performance will only give us 15% to 25% of the performance we
    would receive from ambidextrous David Lee.
    Im not hating on any player

    what the Hell are you talking about man

    If we resigned lee

    there would be no potential for chris paul/carmelo anthony

    we replaced Lee with Stat

    who thus far has prove to be a much better leader and respected player by this new regime than Lee ever was, Lee was a good guy, but you just had this idea that no one on the team wanted to embrace him as the "leader"


    point is, we let Lee go
    because we knew we could have enough cap space to go after 2-3 supreme talents over the next few years

    that is the plan

    if we resigned lee

    our team would be starting


    TWO power forwards for the next 5 seasons to go up against
    the celtics magic bulls heat and lakers


    we develop mozgof

    we got amare

    we get melo

    and we go after paul

    thats how championships are built

    kiya man

    get back on your meds.

    so if we kept frye and lee we would be in a better position?
    i kinda agree tho kiyah, but the thing i have to disagree with is that stat gets madddddddd double teams....he commans it, or else he's gonna rack up 25 in the first half. I was always an advocate for Channing and Jamal Crawford, those guys were bright spots on a bad team. Frye, Lee, Melo, Johnson, Felton (with the money, we could have gotten joe johnson, i like he style)

    Gelling is always a factor amongst new teamates, but we will still need one more piece to the puzzle if we are to go anywhere near the playoffs. Why are some of you guys crying "wake up Gallo"? Stop imagining! Clearly he's not the only one dreaming...wtf! lets be real here and quit the nonsense. sheeesh..

    Why?

    Because Gallo IS the missing piece.

    How great would this roster be once we are gelling together and Gallo is shooting well. And don't you dare tell me he's a scrub YET. Let's see how he plays out the year first. For God's sake, last year Sports Illustrated magazine was comparing him to a young DIRK. This comparison isn't the most appropriate, but even Dirk went through his slumps. Hell, EVERYONE Goes through slumps. Our team will be much better once we get Randolph back and Gallo starts shooting and driving well. It isn't a matter of if, it's a matter of when. Someone, I believe it was KBlack, compared Gallo to AJ Burnett, and just like I continue to believe in AJ, I'll continue to believe in Gallo.

    He needs to be the missing piece…I’d love to see him vanish.

    I’m not one of those guys willing to wait a year for gallo’s game to pick up, not only is that fan fair…it’s totally insane. Do you have any idea how long it will take him to get to NBA status?! Do you even see how lame his drive and handle is? If he’s still hurt, then he is weak and needs to leave, period. The coach brought him into the NBA when no one else would have taking that gamble. Why are you and others talking about his performance last year when there was a 24/7 revolving door for Knick players? The NY media always hype up NY athletes…good and bad. It says a lot about our organization if you think this dude is going to be a main piece to our team. I’m a Knick fan first, player second. Gallanari has done nothing but hinder us, he didn’t work on any parts of his game in the off season and he still gets the favoritism. This crap sucks big time and it will spill into something nasty if the coach allows this crap to continue.

    Why is Gallo so popular in this forum? Seriously. I hardly ever hear anything positive about the dude outside of here. I figure it has something to do with not even being from NY..so they must not know how we ball here, or maybe he comes from their native country. Or, it can be a crush thing. After all, Gallo is the first player I’ve seen shave his armpits…hmmm. irdk...
