Knicks' radio announcers were saying as much last night, commenting on how Chandler looks like he's 'having fun.' They were saying he seems to be involved in the game ALL THE TIME now, not getting lost. Almost like he's having fun again, every possession. Obviously, in the past, with all the losig and the culture in the locker room, Wilson got lost a lot.
Felton-STAT will have to undo 2 years of bad habbits Gallo & WC acquired with the 'wait-4-LJ' philosophy employed at MSG.
We see now what potentia there is with this team as they gel, and when things click AND, on top of that, GALLO & CHANDLER begin to grow and reach the enxt step in the evolution of their games... We might have FOUR ligitimate offensive threats come playoffs, with a Fields playing Mr. Do it All, as their sidekick.... While Turiaf-Douglas provide energy and grit, doing all the other things necessary to compliment the other 5.
And.... what if Mozgov or Randolph make significant strides by the end of the season, and become a BIG who can give 15-20 quality minutes?
AS FOR LEBRON... The image is everythign about him. Much like it was Lebron and a cast of misfits in CLE, he and a bunch of nobodies. Certainly we see now that there was some talent in CLE. Just look at what they're doing w/out LJ right now.
Sure, Knicks would be a very good team with LJ. Heck, even better than the current heat squad. YES, WADE-LJ would have strived in D'ant's system, had they opted for this offense over playing for the aged sage Pat Riley. BUt Riley played his mind tricks and LJ bought into his crap.
Now Lebron is playing in front of apathetic crowds, while STAT and Felton are receiving standing ovations!
Add Melo to this current squad. Sprinkle in another gutty-gritty Turiaf-like BIG.... We have a shot at a title folks!
