Amare and Fields seemed the new ones tonight. Toney Douglas knows Billups can't play 40 mpg like Felton so he feels important and it shows.
We still need some inside help badly but it'll be very difficult to lose these tied games against worst teams anymore with Melo and Billups. Too much quality.
Well if he's not traded by tommorow then he better start playing.
On another note, we won the rebounding battle. But lost the off. rebounding battle. If we get some size we'll be fine I think.

Anybody that questioned the trade needs to start eating crow.... This game is the type the Knicks would have lost before the trade. Amare has a quiet game by his standards and Gallo would have shot us out of the game along with Feltip... Instead Melo pours in 27 in his Knicks debut and Tony D contributes all over the floor. Who says we won't have enough depth..... Great win with more to come...
When Chauncy dribbled the ball threw Delfino's legs, instinctively, I just said oh my goodness.. beautiful.
CB will grow in this system. I'd like to see him shoot a higher percentage fg wise. He such a pros pro tho. So classy. He's saying all of the right things and just showing what a smart player he is. He'll be one of my favs for sure.
I liked that we had a another player to pick up the slack when Amare was on the bench.
TD was huge. He can play w less pressure now that we can put points on the board so much easier. He can be like Barbara was to those old Phoenix teams.
Melo was Melo. Only his first game, but he's got to learn to utilize all of the attention he draws to make others better. He just so good at scoring tho so I understand why he struggles to give the ball up. Good win tnite. We shouldn't have to worry too much anymore about beating teams we're supposed to beat.

i think the reason corey brewer and the other players didnt see action is either their going to get traded or because they have no clue how this system works and needs some P-TIME to get used to it so i doubt that these guys are in the doghouse yet.
Just watched the first half on NBALPB, and if there's one thing I'm loving in this game, it's Billups. ICE COLD!
STAT's focused on D, and can afford to do so more now with less defensive attention on himself at the other end.
Double double in his FIRST GAME as a Knick. 'Melo is the real deal. He and STAT's chemistry will only grow as time goes on.
Chauncey Billups was such a steal. Guy is a class act and a Leader on the court. He fills in nicely where Felton left off.
Need to get better on our offensive rebounding, that's the key right now. We need Center help, whether if it's trade or Earl Baron. Make it happen- Isaiah.
It's great that we have 'Melo now to fill in when STAT fulfills his 1 game suspension after getting another T tonight.
But seriously, great game and looking forward to smashing the Cavs Friday night and then MIA where Melo/STAT/Chauncey will make Wade/LBJ/Bosh look like fools.
As Bart Scott would say: CANT-WAIT.
