Yes, the knicks have to get back to a defensive state of mind. The tennacity they used to play with back in the days was admirable. I want other teams to shake their heads when they play the knicks. The knicks used to be hardcore, really represent the NYC. Everyone knows that us new yorkers are tough, our team should resemble our town!! This is why Eddy Curry is not the answer as our center. We need a big man who could play D. Ewing was not only great offensively, he was a force defensively. Oak and Mase provided big time rebounding and Defense. This why i would like to see a trio of Wallace, Lee, and Randolph. Randolph lacks a little d, but he can sure rebound. We all agree he can score, including an outside shot. (Like Ewing, who had a jumper) Nobody will ever replace our Ewing and those great years, but they have to get back to how they used to play!! Our front court used to be tough!! We didn't have flashy point guards, but we had pure and efficient point guards.
