What is going on with Channing Frye?
Instead of emerging during this period where so many Knicks are injured, Frye has all but disapperared. He seems hesitant, confused. All he does is hang around the perimeter and shoot jumpers.
Last year and even earlier this season, he got rebounds on both ends of the floor, ran the break, and posted up effectively.
Now he seems to have no inside game, while players like Lee and Balkman have thrived with inside games.
The excuse that he cannot co-exist inside with Curry seems absurd. For one thing, in many games, Curry spends significant time on the bench. In addition, Curry does not seem to have negatively afffected Lee and Balkman's inside games.
In addition, the Knicks desperately need a shot blocker help-defender. Frye has the body to be this. Supposedly, he bulked up last offseason, and yet paradoxically he seems more passive, more finesse, more one-dimensional, less energetic and less physical than last year.
So what is going on?
Maybe he needs to get laid or something. I suggest hiring Natalie Dormier as a summer coach.
